Why Do People Play Warframe?

So here’s a legitimate question for you guys… why is Warframe so popular all of a sudden?

I know why it’s being played by all of the Twitch streamers. They have #ad in their titles and are being paid to play.

I know why it’s being covered on some of the bigger news sites. They have disclaimers about being flown to London, and many NA-based outlets are happy to accept the free vacation in exchange for coverage.

What I’m curious about is why the sudden surge. Warframe came out in 2013 and the reviews weren’t favorable. At best it was in that “hey if you like this you might also like this” category, scraping by with 40%-70% scores. I tried it and it felt like a spaztastic shooter game with big emphasis on looting and being a fashion show. The game I tried was generic and lifeless.

What’d You Play This Weekend? I Played an MMO!

This weekend got away fast. I had lots to do on Saturday and Sunday, so I ended up only getting in a little bit of time on the one game I played a bunch of: EverQuest.

Yep, I played EverQuest again! That shouldn’t come as a surprise, seeing that I posted about it several times recently. We’re on the Coirnav progression server having a good time. It’s exactly the same as every new progression server, though. If that hasn’t been your thing in the past, no reason to expect it to be any different this time around.

Remote Play & PC Streaming

Our current residence has a really inconvenient layout which ends up causing me to need to be away from the room with my main gaming computer and consoles.

If I’m playing on the Switch there’s never a problem.¬† I just grab the console and ago. That’s not the case with my PC or PS4.

PS4 Remote Play

I’ve recently been dabbling a lot in the PS4 Remote Play and PC Streaming setups.

Using the Remote Play application for PC, I’m able to connect to my PS4 over wifi. This basically streams my PS4 to any device that can run windows (or mac). I use a first generation Surface Pro from the other room while playing games like Monster Hunter World. Works pretty dang good!

I do notice a few issues with it, like there’s a bit of lag if you’re not using a wired connection for both devices. My PS4 is on the network with an ethernet cable, and my Surface Pro is using wifi. Not ideal, but the lag is just low enough to not really make playing a burden.
