    Listening to Harlo talk about “you don’t have to spend money on the figures to play the game” on Skylanders sounds uncomfortably like me trying to convince people to play Warframe.

    I got a new phone and my Tiny Death Star save wasn’t backed up to the cloud. Will never play it again.

    I’ve spent money on Warframe but it wasn’t out of frustration. They had a 50% off sale. Still have spent less on Warframe than I have on Skyrim or Borderlands 2 and I have a similar hour investment. The problem with Warframe is it doesn’t explain shit. It gets newbies money because they don’t learn the systems because they don’t know they’re there.

    Its probably a credit card thing. Are you capable of owning a credit card and not using it? I think that’s the free game test.
