I remember the day I bought Tribes 2...I was soo psyched to get it home and be one of the players flying through the sky like in the demo in perfect superhero style.
And so I booted up my computer and ran the install which took close to an hour. I then tried to play the game and it didn't work. I tried to fix the problem multiple ways, but came to the conclusion that I needed to upgrade.
So $400.00 later I had a new video card and a PIII 800Mh processor. I believed this to be a worthy purchase because I wanted to get online and play the really badass game that I had read everyone talking about on the message baords and the hype in PC Gamer magazine.
So for a second time I booted up the new improved computer and clicked on the Tribes 2 single player icon....the game started!
Ah, thank the O Lord for giving us this day our Tribes 2 in all it's hyped glory and let me frag anyone who trespasses against me, Amen.
But what's this? No this can't be. Why are some of the textures messed up? Uninstall, reinstall.
Another 45 minutes later.
Click. Ta-da, and presto. Everything's in working order and with a little tweaking the game looks great. Still loads slow, but I can deal with that. The feeling that this game was a shitty purchase was starting to fade away.
So I dawdle around in single player for a while, just getting used to the controls and I decide it's about time to get some online action.
I click on the Multiplayer icon and try to find a server and connect. Then after multiple attempts to get on a server, when I finally did get on one everything was sloooow and I got disconnected and the game just shut down, so I had to restart in order to try again.
After several frustrating attempts at this, the feeling of Sierra sticking a big fat cock in my ass started to creep back up on me. I thought that maybe there was a patch that might fix it, so I logged onto the web site and to my surprise...there it was only there were multiple patches to choose from.
I won't go into details about all of my frustration with the patches, because anyone who's owned this piece of craptastic piece of f**kshit knows about trying to install the patch and it repeatedly trying to patch itself in a never ending f**kfest of shitholiness.
I vowed from then on I would never again purchase a Sierra product, and I won't and I hope that everyone else gives two extended middle fingers to this company if they try and pawn another one of these games out onto the gaming community.
SIERRA, I HAVE ONE THING TO SAY TO YOU.....F**K YOU! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU COCK SMOKERS!!!!!
