PCF are very talented, let them do their thing. Keep Cliffy and Mark Rein OUT of the design pipeline. What hurt this game was the obvious crap that Epic had a hand in putting into Bulletstorm ie; GoW style characters, big meat-heads with juvenile toilet humor thats supposed to be "outrageous" along with the ultra-linear gameplay.

Painkiller is arguably the finest pure shooter ever made. Give them credit for knowing how to make a game. Take your demographic studies and shove them up your ass.

I can't think of how they could have made a demo for the previous ES games and had it be representative of what you experienced in the game proper. I was fine with all the ones before and no reason why this won't be a great experience as well.

Global Agenda was and still is a huge joke and failure. Thus my expectations are low.

agreed, it was pretty dull. But the gameplay videos for Ascend look like it could be entertaining.

it might very well turn out to be shit but I'll keep and open mind.

If its fun, I'm playing the fucking thing, especially for free.

Go fuck your uncles Hi Rez. I honestly wish I knew the idiots in charge of making this decision, I (and I assume many others) want to punch these fuckers in the snout.

No dedicated servers? No mods, no editing.. and.. they are placing some emphasis on melee. Melee? You fucks... this isn't Global Agenda meets Tribes.. god dammit... GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!

PAGING SCOTT YOUNGBLOOD... look what this nitwits are doing to your baby!!!!

I have zero hope for this game.. none.

CH, obviously it won't be the original Tribes (or the other two either). Having said that, if you enjoy that style of play and you don't have to shell out a dime, whats the problem? It's either this or no Tribes or Tribes-like gameplay at all.

No, it's not what any of us would ask for in a Tribes game but half a loaf is better than no loaf (bad cliche's, I know)

you can still play the original game. Give it a shot.

And actually has gameplay depth. Something that Halo has little of

Disagreed on both sides.
Planetside, at least at launch, was just a slow, shallow shooter. The actual combat was terrible.

Not sure what game you were playing Beamer but NO FPS then (at launch) or since has had the depth of PS.

Good to hear. These seemed like they worked pretty hard to get this game off the ground and its not half bad.

Hopefully they'll do the Tribes IP justice despite the hardcore tantrum babies who are unable to keep an open mind.

something about deboning thigh meat makes it turn quickly. I've noticed this the couple of times I've purchased boneless thighs. Best bet is to just debone them yourself. Its kind of tricky due to the fact there are several muscle groups on the bone but keep your blade sharp (and small) and its a snap.

This will change no one's behavior. It will simply give the MPAA/RIAA another questionable revenue stream that uses courts as their collectors and rewards them for not changing their business models to come in line with the rest of the 21st century.

News Comments > Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer
21. Re: Tribes Ascend Will Be F2P, Gameplay Trailer Jun 27, 2011, 19:16 Hump
 
Jerykk, I understand and respect your points but the game was just recently announced and a very general outline of how the game will work has been released, but thats about it. My gripe is people have passed judgment and buried it simply because its not what they expected.

tribes, the original much loved version, would simply fail financially in 2011 because of the level of skill it takes to get up to speed and play in an average game. yes, its a sad comment on how people are too spoiled nowadays but that's the reality of the situation. It would also fail if they simply made a graphical update to please the hardcore base. No publisher in their right mind would do it.

the biggest thing is that people better start getting used to F2P PC titles because that's the model that is going to be the norm for online MP games. Even Valve, who proved that PC gaming isn't dead, is choosing to make TF2 F2P. Publishers are more likely to fund a game that has a revenue stream over time so they can prop up shareholders expectations. Charging monthly will piss people off and selling it in a traditional manner doesnt net then the money they want plus they bitch about losing money on used game sales.

Personally, I would prefer the old way all around but if this is the only way to get a decent Tribes game put out, I'm willing to give it a shot.

Did this (insert racial epithet here) actually READ the court decision?

It clearly states WHY it is unconstitutional and NOTHING to do with "corporate interests". What a spineless, bleeding-heart bag-of-shit he is.

Not surprisingly, the brain trust at TribalWar doesn't seem to like it.

Of course no one here will either.

Utterly amazing how people can look at a 60 second trailer and decide that it will suck.

Looks like Tribes to me. Why don't you wait to see how they're going to make money on this before flying off the handle.

you mean using rational thought? C'mon cutter, you've been here long enough to know that you're asking the impossible....

I'd like to see if this guy is as polite and understanding when they finally release the game and the "community" gets to comment.

I predict Todd Harris will quit working in the industry at that point and go into growing and selling flowers.
