Gotta ask.. was there an epiphany or just a slow movement as you got older?

A bit of both perhaps. An epiphany in that I wanted my beliefs to be correct so I started down the path of critical thinking and skepticism.
Then the slow movement of shedding beliefs that I no longer had good reasons to believe.

Didn't mean to hijack the thread, I was just reflecting on some of my old posts. Yeesh.

Happy Anniversary to Blues News!!!

21 years ago I was a fundamental Baptist,Limbaugh loving, right winger. Now I'm a skeptic, left of center,and a secular humanist.

Am I older and wiser or does daily reading of Blues News turn you into a stinking liberal?

I wonder what I'll be after another 21 years? Still a gamer and a fan of this site I'm sure.

That generator story gives me hope for humanity.

I want to believe, but all the pics just screams "look at me". I know, I know, we all need these feel good stories but this one seems forced to me. They went through the storms in 04, but still waited until the last minute to get a 'life or death' generator? Reguardless, kudos to the guy who gave his up. Still an awesome thing to do.

I'm sure that much better random acts of kindness are happening all over without all the attention. I've seen 2 myself and I'm sure we'll see plenty more in the days to come.

You've just proved my point your arguments are not logical at all...

You might want to take your own advice. Kajetan gave clear, rational points while you continued with sweeping generalizations and strawmen.

Believe it or not, not everyone who disagrees with you is "fucking retarded".

That's right. This is nothing new and certainly nothing to bitch about.

So? WoW has done this since day one, but it wasn't called micro transactions. You had to pay to change servers, change your name, you can now buy mounts and pets.
This sounds like the same thing to me.

I admire you guys for not objectifying women.
I however am a pig like the other 99.99999% of men and LOVE the babes.

Seriously, I can't say I'll buy a product on sex appeal alone, but it'll certainly get my attention.

I wonder if people knew about iPhones when buying galaxy phones.

I think people knew of iphones, but avoided them. ...
Just a theory.

Pretty much a fact. Consumers savvy enough to choose the Galaxy S III almost certainly know all about the iPhone (who doesn't?) I would wager the opposite is true however, that not all iPhone consumers know much about Android phones. Of course that's just my jaded opinion.

Agreed. That ship has sailed.
Ditto. This would have been HUGE 3-4 years ago. But if they managed to snag Jackson it'd still have a shot.

Don't forget the 200x mark up on their premium argon injected, platinum tipped, carbon fiber weave, unbotanium coated, gamma shielded connector cables.

LOL! Exactly.
If BB would have focused on online ordering/in-store pickup they could have cleaned up. The few times I've taken advantage of the in-store pickup have been painful. Newegg is just too fast, cheap, and easy.

Just as in every other Tribes games, the vehicles in T:A are overpowered.
I agree completely that the vehicles, especially the shrike are way overpowered in T:A. Much more so than the previous versions IMHO. You had to be unusually good in T1 & T2 to chase down a flag runner. In T:A it happens way to often. I had many games that went on forever because both sides had multiple shrikes. Bleh!
The anti air weapon is a joke, takes WAY too long to lock on and is too easy to avoid.
That being said, I'm still loving the game. They managed to capture the feeling of a Tribes game for me. T2 is still my favorite (Siege game type FTW), but this is still very good.

If the only thing you come away with is "pay to win" after reading the PC Gamer review, you're being obscenely obtuse, ignorant, and willfully ignoring the words posted not just in the review, but even the little snippet I quoted.

Tribes Ascend is one of the most perfect and fair implementations of free-to-play I've ever seen. It's right up there with League of Legends and Team Fortress 2. You cannot pay to win. Skill matters above all. Everything that matters can be purchased with experience you earn for free.

And, most importantly, you can get a ridiculous amount of variety in classes and loadouts for a measely $13. You're paying for variety, not advantage.
Well said sir!

I was an avid Tribes & Tribes 2 fan (too much so, I ended up getting my keyboard thrown outside in the rain by my wife) and am absolutely LOVING this game. My only critique is that the skiing is a bit too easy. I gave em $30 more to support the developers than to unlock anything.
Juggs FTW!

Thanks for the heads up. Man that looks awesome!

Aaaah, I chose not to use the skiing exploit. Doesn`t make me a nOOb.
Yes. Yes it does,for this game at least. There's no doubt that skiing is what made this game great, and it's intentionally been added into all the successors.
Keep in mind that Tribes (and Tribes 2) had a very steep learning curve so we were all n00bs for a bit at least.

Loved the video of the classic Tribes1 skiing btw, brought back some fond memories.
I remember a few folks who could travel faster than the spinfusor could shoot. They would actually fly into their own disk if they fired in front of themselves.
Good times.

You don't pay to get in the beta.
It's common practice to get into early beta's and other perks when you pre-order a game.
