I've never played or seen a Tribes game before, but this game looks like Battlefield 2142 meets RAGE meets Halo meets Unreal Tournament meets Crysis meets Quake 3, and graphically it's stunning. 
Absolutely on my radar right now, it's fucking refreshing to see a good old PC shooter with spectator mode/freecam and this vibe of freedom and great community content potential.

Considering the fact that I've been familiar with this game for about 10 minutes, I don't even know what to ask about yet :P But thanks.

Well message me anything. I did not play more then a few rounds. But I had fun. The controls are a bit hard to get used to. It was mostly sailing in a straight line.

Skiing is *still* fun!

Yeah but really fast. I got into the beta as well. It was fun, but damned if I could actually hit anyone.

I got a kill from the awesome side weapon/granade launcher.

Being a huge Dynamix and Tribes fan from back in the day, I am really disappointed with Tribes Ascend. They rely way too much on the "skiing" gimmick and every map feels like this....

#14 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

used T11E1-B4036-A5334-53B9C-28910, thanks duder

Yeah thanks to @yinstarrunner: I just played for a few minutes and it's really fun! The skiing and jetpack launching really feel good, not to mention the raw feel of he weapons as they fire.
#19 Posted by Swoxx (2988 posts) -

Used the last key. Thanks a whole lot @Swyver

#20 Posted by Subjugation (4718 posts) -

Just played for a good hour or so and it feels pretty good. The high speed thanks to skiing and the verticality thanks to jet packs really raises the skill ceiling in my opinion. Grinding out tokens seems like it will take a lifetime though without boosts.

#21 Edited by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

I love the sense of speed and the mobility you get when you use your jump pack properly but I'll be damned if I can hit anything with the spinfusor. I'll probably play more T:A after the Steam holiday stuff dies down.

#22 Posted by Skytylz (4029 posts) -

I've got like 20 games on Steam I want to play through right now, I was hoping to get a few of them done while I don't have classes. Tribes Ascend has ruined those planes. THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!! We should have a bombing run some time this weekend.

#23 Posted by Pobearo (108 posts) -

I was like 10 when tribes 2 came out, so I absolutely loved it but looking back I was so shitty at it. I have yet to play this game, but watching this stream it's got a nice nostalgia factor and looks really fun. Hopefully my laptop will be able to run it on at least low, or else it will be a while before I'll be able to play it. Hopefully it can get a competitive community and stick around a while! There needs to be something other than counter-strike for PC FPSers to waste their days on.

I never got into tribes and didn't understand what it was all about. That said, I had a BLAST last night with this game. Really damned cool gameplay. I don't know how it compares, all I know is that I'm glad it's not another goddamn military shooter.

I'm going to jump into this right now.

Never played Tribes before, decided to check this out yesterday. I have concluded that Tribes is fucking amazing... Speeding through a pinhole in the side of the enemy base, grabbing the flag before they even know what hit 'em, jumping out just as shots hit your feet and skiing back to your base while avoiding enemy fire - all in a single, fluid motion - is the greatest (and also worst) feeling in the world.

Multiplayer only? Have fun duders.

I am really enjoying this game. I like using a juggernaut on capture the flag
