If Harvey Smith and Viktor Antonov were not involved with this game, would anyone care?

Of course ubisoft is complaining about consoles. Look at the huge difference with crysis 2 with tesselation and high resolution textures and compare to the consoles. It's like night and day difference in graphics quality. But to complain about AI? You got a PC, you aren't limited on the PC technically as much as on the consoles. But of course you are limited sale wise and their DRM is not winning them any friends on the PC side.

Just when you thought they were embracing the PC, they say the wrong thing.

Modding tools take away DLC selling options. Duh. Whether or not the engine and tolls are too complex or not is just the cherry on top. A thin excuse.

16:10 is wider than 16:9 aspect ratio?

The screenshot looks good, always welcome a futuristic game with open arms.

Itís kind of funny how most PC only titles are coming out of the European theater while the USA seems to be going after the console market only. Not that I mind, I just wish more of the American developers would go this route too.
Eastern European developers are leading the PC market and have been IMO for the past decade. Look at Mafia, Hidden & Dangerous, almost the entire catalog from 1C Company. The US lost it's way a long time ago and have no idea how to get back. Maybe the next Duke Nukem game and Aliens from Gearbox will give hope!
Duke Nukem and Aliens, good one!

Wow all this speculation from one screenshot. They aren't blizzard or valve. Hold back your imaginations.

Is that a party over there? You see, I would like to poop on it.
I wasn't invited, so yes I poop on it.

There is already a cross platform system. Why reinvent the wheel? It's called IRC: Internet Relay Chat.

Psychological studies purporting to show a connection between exposure to violent video games and harmful effects on children do not prove that such exposure causes minors to act aggressively. Any demonstrated effects are both small and indistinguishable from effects produced by other media. Since California has declined to restrict those other media, e.g., Saturday morning cartoons, its video-game regulation is wildly underinclusive, raising serious doubts about whether the State is pursuing the interest it invokes or is instead disfavoring a particular speaker or viewpoint.[q
That's the majority opinion in the case decided today striking down California's law.

For the record, I don't think playboys should have paper bags over them for minor's sake.

Well at least with a free to play game there is a demo.

2 weapons is not enough flexibility. Are they going to have regenerating health too to complete the modern console shooter experience?

Also a tip to modelers. I know you are trying to show off how good your model detail by making your weapon model huge, but understand that it covers 1/4 of the screen or more is not good.

This is just sad. The people who enjoyed Tribes 1 and Tribes 2 are in their 20's and 30's. How are you going to get them to play a game based on buying items.

They are setting themselves up for failure. They won't get the core Tribes audience and they will not get the newbies either.

Man I wish this was not true, but Tribes is now dead to me with this free to play bullshit.

I think this Senator would be more successful if the scientific evidence was in his favor. Unfortunately it is not. Judges try to use reason and evidence, including scientific evidence to make their decisions. Good luck convincing Judges that video games cause harm, you won't unless the science backs you up, and it does not.

That's the bottom line.

Well now my excitement for this game has just taken a nose down and is now subterranean.

Free to play is not a quality game.

They aren't tyring to appeal to the hardcore crowd with this move.

Tribes 2 had 64 man servers almost a decade before any other first person shooter. How can they possibly not have dedicated servers? How can you play a game where you need to lead your target in the z access peer to peer? Please.

This means nothing anymore and it will take developers years to realize it.

As much as I love The Witcher 2 its lead platform was PC but it was quite obvious they took consoles into account and the game suffered because of it.

I agree with the Witcher 2. Saying that something is a lead platform does not mean that your design decisions do not have consoled factored into them. Witcher 2 definately has some console design decisions like the 16:9 fullscreen only and some of the interface designs. I'm still waiting for the 1.3 patch which will give me 16:10 fullscreen support, then I can finally play past the prologue.

Blur is a bad idea in a fast paced aerial combat game and so is depth of field and a narrow FOV. Also the gun models are way too big. You can make highly detailed gun models without having them taking up so much of the damn screen. BUT that does not mean this stuff can't be turned off or adjusted.

Well Microsoft, Nvidia, AMD/ATI should have paid them more money to implement these features earlier, you now upon release. But it's better late than never.
