That Barry Diller guy looks like a poster child for Wall Street. Nickel and dime anyone? Why does the Tribes franchise have to always be tied to the worst things imaginable.

Holy shit, I should've read the full post. I missed that fucking gem. They realize most console games are like 7GB these days right?

It actually works ok, but with soem give. The games arent going to be glitzy BF2 style games with that kind of detail or scale. Looke at Quakelive. Its plays ok but it looks like Quake 1 with more colors.

So basically Newegg is telling us these CPU's did not come from D&H but of course they dare not mention who or where they came from. More and more its becoming evident they purchased these cpu's from a cheap possibly black market provider. Perhaps even an overseas black market provider. You have to wonder how they can cut cost so much on some of this stuff.

Quake live is cool but after an hour of running around on small little maps it kind of gets boring. I'm an older gamer and loved Action Quake but games are bigger more immersive and so interactive these days. This is appealing for only so long.

Blow me away with some better movement. The movement in Battlefield kind of sucks.

Perhaps Project Offset will actually offer something real and meaty to PC gaming.

Yes ASJD yet another World War shooter is out there for you to play. The rest of us will enjoy something new and different. Shattered Horizons is a cool game released with very little content. With more content and maps this game has great potential.

PC gaming Dead? Uh I dont know Bad Company 2 looks pretty amazing. Plus there are still plenty of worthy titles coming out for the PC that are not ports. Plus PC games shine for multiplayer. All these single player story driven games dont really mean much to me on the PC.

The game is not bad. At least its a move away from the same ol same ol.. The issue I think is with the controls. They are really more complicated and funked then they need to be. Granted this can become a skill part of the game which is a challenge but it may turn of the casual gamer or the generic FPS gamer. Maybe the controls are better with a joystick but they completely suck with keyboard and mouse. I also wish you could actually play first person. third person makes it more consolish to me.

I hate to tell you guys this, but T2 would probably be far more popular then T1 to people who have never played the game. T2 just sucked on release for long time players because they foolishly nerfed the speed and skiing.

So what did they do with Tribes Vengeance? They had a few "insider" competition people (including KP as a dev) who thought that they just needed to make the skiing fast and bring back the speed. They forget everything else. The problem is that you have people who are defiant LT should be the way the game is played and many more who prefer having the dimension of the larger tactical battle elements.

Remember back in the late 90's when we all use to loathe the day gaming would become super commercial. Well here we are. Consoles, watered down games, proprietary game networks, no mods, no dedicated servers. Just wonderful. Oh but those graphics are really cool.

Lets just agree, Irrational games is good for story driven games, not so much for shooters unless its something unique of their own doing.

I really enjoyed SWAT 4.

It was funny, when Irrational had to dump Tribes Vengeance they still kept support up on Swat 4 which was using the tweaked Unreal 2 engine they used to make Tribes Vengeance. Unreal 2 was horrid for a Tribes game but it seemed to work well for a Swat game.

True. Though, they could just make the game have two different modes: T1 mode which is much faster, doesn't have any vehicles and is more offense-oriented and T2 mode which is slower, vehicle-centric and more defense-oriented. T2 Classic was almost like a T1 mode, though it was still slower and vehicle-centric. Both T1 and T2 were divided into numerous communities. T1 had base, Renegades, Shifter, Annihilation, etc. T2 had base, classic, Team Rabbit 2, etc. I don't see why a dev couldn't just make one game with two different modes of play.

I'd agree although its even simpler then that. You make the game with all the bells and whistles from T1 and T2 (yes vehicles and all) add some cool new stuff. Make sure the speed and physics of T1/T2C are in place and make that "the base game". Then you offer a good "server" piece for competitive play that also allows an admin to easily set rules of his own such as disabling vehicles, certain weapons etc.

Part of what kills Tribes from really growing IS the hardcore competitive players who tend to like minimizing everything for classic competitive LT style of play. Most new people and casual fans will be attracted to larger tactical play which was really the original intent of Tribes gameplay in the first place. Provide the full canvas. From there competitive players can hone the server to their liking. Tribes Vengeance did the reverse and figured as long as speedy skiing was there all would be ok and the community can build in the features they want... big mistake. Problem is that they want to force people to like the way they play Tribes (LT style). It takes some time to build up to that skill level. In the meantime no new players will want to to play if they run into an LT server and they cant enjoy being involved in the fun. Thats why T1 and T2 where so awesome. It had it all for everyone.
