Few RPGs have ever made me really think about the consequences of my actions. The last time it happened was in the Witcher 3. Obsidian's and Paradox's Tyranny is right up there with last year's multi-award winning Game of the Year.

This week started off with a bang with Monday's N7 Day, the annual remembrance of the Mass Effect original trilogy and Commander Shepard. On this particular N7 Day, Bioware deluged fans of the series with the first big info-dump about Mass Effect: Andromeda, the new game that is set for a Q1 2017 release.

Warframe is a free to play cooperative online third-person shooter. The sci-fi themed game sees players take on the role of the Tenno, a recently awakened ancient warrior race against several adversarial factions. Luckily, the Tenno still possess information and knowledge of Warframes, powerful armor suits, each with significant capabilities to help fight back against enemies.
Gameplay involves heading into battle and begins by equipping your Warframe and your chosen weapons. Players must seek out enemies (all NPCs, as the only playable race is the Tenno), kill them, and complete challenges to progress. Those enemy factions consist of the cloned, heavily armored Grinneer, tech-enhanced Corpus, and mutated Infested. Third-person shooter mechanics, agile jumps, and Warframe tech will guide players to victory, secrets, and even mods to loot.
The game has an optional cash shop, but Warframes and other items sold for real money may be obtained through in game methods.
