Zac Davis of Toaster chimp examines some difference between Destiny and Warframe.
Two completely different types of games.... This is a dumb article.
Warframe is free, can be fun if you have friends to play with, doesn't acquire Playstation plus in order to play online.
Never played warframe, never will. But I have put over 1400 hours in destiny.
If you haven't played both then your opinion isn't worth anything. Especially when you try to do it in such a condescending manner. Congrats on running the same levels over and over again for almost 60 days of your life.
Thank you! A game has to be fun as hell to do that!
Well, it can be either fun or tap into a part of our gamer brain that shamelessly exploits addiction.
Gran Turismo vs. Mario Kart; What's the difference?
The reason you can trade in Warframe is because there's enough artillery and items to justify it.
The difference is DE cares about its player base and its game. And it shows with the amount of content they add to the game with every update...for free.
for me the difference is that i downloaded it on my day one PS4 warframe and im still playing to this day, destiny i get it on launch day, had to force me to beat it and get to max level my warlock trade it in a month
The author really missed some important aspects of Warframe that puts Destiny to shame: The classes (i.e. 24 warframes vs 6 in destiny (3 classes each with a sub class). Those frames in Warframe all are unique in certain ways and each has their own abilities and some actually synergize together quite nicely. Survivability - Each class in Destiny is its own fighter but they all feel the same -> honestly, I don't really live longer being a warlock vs hunter vs titan. They basically all have the same base armor. I would expect the titan to have the best defenses but um, no it doesn't. A titan will die just as easily as the hunter who is supposed to have the weakest defenses. There are several frames in Warframe that can really survive a lot of damage. Synergies - I really haven't found a synergy with Destiny classes. In warframe, you can cause enemies to fight each other and when one dies they all explode (Nyx + Nova). There are other synergies present in warframe allowing your team to really help each other out. Weapons - wow are there really some different weapons in warframe vs destiny, too many to list there. Melee - I am not sure what game the author played, but the Melee combat in Warframe is far greater than Destiny. Warframe has lots of melee weapons to use and they even have different combos. You can even setup warframes to be melee only (i.e. Loki). Customizations - warframes has cards that you can use the adjust the survivability, power, etc... The cards you can level up but at the cost of the frame's available points. So you can go all out for defense or power or combination. Destiny is far more limited in that aspect. Now, I will fully agree that Destiny does have a much smoother shooting/movement mechanic, but honestly that is the only thing I can find better in Destiny over Warframe. BTW - I had over 400 hours in Destiny and who knows how many hours in Warframe(probably close to 1000). So I played both games for a very long time.
As an avid Warframe (and also former Destiny player), I can agree with EVERYTHING that you said. I think the main thing is the differing Warframes/abilities. That, at least for me, keeps the game from getting stale. Simply put, you do the same things. BUT, you don't have to do them in the same ways. Each Warframe can offer a chance to tackle things in completely different way. (offensive, defensive, support, etc.) The other thing is that Warframe is constantly changing. DE has improved the game SOO much from day one, it's almost a different game. Content-wise, there are additions at least every other month or so.
To add to AnotherGamer117's comments, "Now, I will fully agree that Destiny does have a much smoother shooting/movement mechanic, but honestly that is the only thing I can find better in Destiny over Warframe." This is mainly due to movement being much slower in Destiny. In Warframe players and NPCs are moving on/off walls and every surface at breakneck speeds while in Destiny jumps take forever (blink excluded). Warframe also tends to have WAY more enemies onscreen at the same time. This can lead to large combos and kill sprees as well as pushing the limits of most players Rig/bandwidth. Destiny has more small scale skirmished due to Guardians being so squishy. While $0-$60 invested into Warframe will allow you to acquire everything the game has to offer (in limited numbers at a time or all at once depends on amount invested). Destiny requires $60-$160 (post TTK) in order to enjoy the full game, depending on when you buy in. New players get the best value but veteran players are getting shafted. Players who don't invest into TTK will find the game severely limited. Edit: Oh and matchmaking! Warframe has this for all parts of the game... well >.> ... except for void. Destiny has matchmaking for all but the top tier part of the game which really limits players ability to participate in endgame content. Hopefully both remedy this part of their game.
I gladly spent 60 on warframe during the time I was playing it. I am right now in Elder scrolls but seriously thinking about returning to Warframe. I just wish they had better looking ships. I always hated the tadpole design.
Well they are starting to work on making the ships more appealing and customizable.
Destiny is fun.
