Thats great news, I hope they try not to innovate much or at all from the original formula, as HM was unique and ahead of time when it came out, whereas most other games / franchises have gone in reverse in the meanwhile.

Apple’s technology decisions are mostly about what the “average user” wants, squeezed into as small of a package as possible. Because of this, graphics processing horsepower is left behind. No one should be remotely surprised at this.
Crap drivers are another.

It might also be related to anti cheat mechanisms / we shouldn't assume it's all about graphics, though you might be right

They apparently have more writers than we have readers.

HA!

Guess I'll buy this in 6 months time, when the game costs less, is bundled with all the DLC to make it an 'Actual' Simcity game (subways, thermoforming), and when all the bugs are fixed and standard features are implemented

Yeah I was hoping it was a BattleZone reboot also.

Bad move, naming it Battlezone. I was disappointed as well seeing it wasn't releated to the seminal Battlezone series.

Good point, I was rather disappointed also, and just switched off!

Wow, I've totally forgotten about this game. Does anyone play this?
I remember playing the beta or something, was fun if I remember, but I think BFBC2 was out at the time and also http://battlefield.play4free.com/ is better.

Anyway for free to play games, I'm totally hooked on Tribes Ascend, good old T2 (ish) action.

This is great news. I adored the original games, and I think remakes should keep as close to the format of the originals as possible IMHO.

Now all I want is a studio to do this very same thing with Syndicate. We are gerting some FPS shit remake, now we need the real top down perspective remake! Please please please....

slightly off-topic: One thing about Vengeance that I thought was a great addition was the grappling hook. It was a skill that could be developed to allow one to change direction quickly. It wasn't unbalanced and it seemed to fit well within Tribes-style gameplay. I'd love to see something similar included in Ascend

Wasn't unbalanced? Are you kidding? It was horribly unbalanced and totally screwed chasers. Tribes is all about momentum and the ability to predict your opponent's movements based on things like speed and trajectory. When your opponent can instantly and drastically change direction, that makes things exponentially more difficult for chasers. In fact, unless the chaser also carried the grappler, he was screwed because there was no way he could change direction as quickly as cappers. Then there was also the ability for cappers to grapple to something and then just fly circles around it forever, making it much harder to hit them and causing stalemates to drag on much longer.

Tribes is about skill, right? I'm going on the assumption that people rise to a challenge. Also, maybe I didn't pay attention but some of the scenarios you mention I never saw (and I played quite a bit of Vengeance MP).

Anyhow. it more than likely wont be in so no use in arguing

Just took the time to read these replies.
Yes interesting on the mechanics of the grapple, but yes I'm assuming its not going to be features in this game.

What I do not want to see but I'm sure it will be in the game,due to Ascend being free to play, is unlocks for weapons, items amour packs etc. They are featured heavily in games like Call of Duty and Battlefield series, but they do not belong in Tribes.
