Tribes Ascend... YouTube Exclusive?

Why was

not uploaded to the main site as either regular or premium content.

I am getting more and more interested in Free to Play titles and also want to learn more about Tribes and FireFall.

I'd really like to see GiantBomb cover more high quality free to play titles with quick looks, demos, etc.

That video is done by the interns, and their stuff doesn't go on the main site. GB's staff policy on free-to-play games are to not cover them, since they consider their jobs main purpose is to inform consumers on whether a product is worth their money or not.

@Shoki: Yeah the Interns are responsible for that, they also at this point basically run the YouTube channel.

I wish they had the same policy for Wii and Kinect. I'd rather see them Demo/QuickLook some of the upcoming Free to Play titles. Seems like there are a lot of high quality Free to Play games coming up.

Anywho...

Thanks for the replies!
