Out of the Blue

Was out and about on a little family adventure yesterday and ended up getting in later than expected, missing the chance for an evening round-up of news that came in during the day yesterday. As it turns out the rare Saturday news item turned up to add to the regrets over this, as the Tribes: Fast Attack cancellation news broke, news that really underscores some regrets about the problems this franchise has experienced since the promising launch of Starsiege TRIBES. Here's hoping there's still a happy ending to be found in the unusual sounding plan to "relaunch" TRIBES 2.

Play Time: Triclops. Shockwave Required.

Yeah, it would be nice if game developers could keep their engines up to date on the older versions of the game.
That way, T1 could have all the new features for today's graphics cards.
Oh well. I don't care about Fast Attack. Just want the new patch so I don't get any more UEs.

They need to release a Tribes 1: Best Game Ever edition. Ok, so maybe it's not the best game ever, but I loved it.

In general, I'm pretty accepting of people's kinks.

But this is just fucked.

That was like a game or something, right?

All kidding aside, it sounds like they are jamming content they have lying around into an old engine in an attempt to make a buck off what was going to be a real loser.

They should either shit or get off the pot. Make a game, or release an expansion. And call it what it is.

Personally I couldn't stand this game in any of its incarnations. Why won't they just LET IT DIE?

Someone's becoming a bit lazy in finding play time links, it would seem.

Tribes 2 was great imo. Now that more people have the kind of PC needed to experience it at its best, I hope it does well. Ninjamod is a great little mod, and adds a lot to the gameplay, well worth a try.

The only unusual part of the T2 relaunch will be the price -- around $10. It's actually quite common for games to be relaunched with added content and that's what's happening here. Comp mod, Team Rabbit 2, over 20 new maps and a final all-in-one patch will make for a pretty good package from what I saw. The idea that Fast Attack being cancelled is a bad thing has been grossly overstated. While Aerial Assault is a fun game, I doubt shipping a console-ized version of Tribes for the PC would have helped Sierra.

The council was a lot of fun. Sierra has given its full support to a future Tribes game, T2's got some great new content coming out soon. Begone, negativity!

Oh the pain and misery it is to be a Tribes fan these days. With all the negativity surrounding Tribes these days its a wonder they are trying at all. Don't get me wrong, I love T2, but it does seem that Sierra has a huge uphill battle ahead of them. My advice, shut up, quit announcing new Tribes titles, build a kick ass game and release it onto an unsuspecting community. I don't care if it takes 3 years, just quit announcing new games and cancelling them.

Sierra (to Tribes 2): "oh, you have a boo-boo?"
Tribes: "Yeah, it really hurts. .. ."
Sierra: "Here, let me help . . . " <begins rubbing salt and lemon juice into wound>
Tribes: "Aaaaaaaahhhhhhrrrrrggg!! . . . . <gurggle, gurggle>"
Sierra: "There, there . . . all better now?"
