    Sweet! There is a bit of a learning curve in that it is not like regular shooters or any other game really (and I don't mean the weapons). You can play it like one but I really feel like most people who do end up not liking it so much (as happened with Kurgan is my hunch). The true Tribes experience and what makes it so fun and unique is all about the "skiing" and going fast, man. Nailing a guy while going 200+ who is traveling just as fast in the other direction...there is just no better rush in video games I have ever experienced. Of course I also0 played it back in the day so there is some nostalgia involved too.

    A "test" beta client just came out too with a bunch of changes incl physics plus like four new maps. Its a separate install and app to run at the point.

    Edit: Maybe I shouldn't be so single-minded above as there are plenty of classes incl heavies with various roles and lots of ways to play the game. But if you can take the time to learn the ins and outs of skiing combined with the jetpack you will have the most success and thus fun. The faster you can move the harder you are to hit. Note on the "official" servers you will start out against lower level players like yourself; Quick Match can actually be a good way to go in this game, especially at first.

    I played it. It is actually a lot like PS2. Kind of clunky.
    Have you played the MP on FC3 at all ? Beats the shit out
    of Warfighter. :laugh: Of course most MP do.

    Not "clunky" at all once you learn how to maneuver right and lead your shots properly and all that. In fact, quite the opposite. For example, timing your jets and adjusting your landing so you end up skiing a downward slope when you touch the ground and thus don't lose speed nor take any damage is very "smooth". :) The gameplay and mechanics definitely takes some getting used to though first as I have already mentioned.

    Well at least we are talking about a game though I should probably stop with the OT.

    You're not superbowl bound. You live in Idaho.

    Wait you haven't already!? By the way, I think I was told you are a pharmacist and, if so, how can your nick not be Dr. Feelgood? :p

    I need to play some BF3 again soon, been a few days; for GPU oc testing too as nothing I know of compares for such. At least that I own and play...

    He stabbed some dude named LoGaN74M, who, looking at his profile, is apparently a bigwig but I've never heard of him. Probably because he may be from Spain.

    I'm downloading it on a better machine and will check it out further. I have to give it a little time too. Learning all the new systems and weapons and shit like that.

    Lots of double and triple kills :D Yup the 6870 is still running strong, with my new CPU I get 60fps or more in every game. The only green card I have is a 8600GT which is currently acting as a space heated :3

    Wow been awhile since I played with TPU'ers. We played Ole school Caspian Border. Got my ass kicked as usual , but had all Craz, Alex, Phenom.
    Pretty fun talking with the guys from back in BFBC2 days. Playing single players lately that doesn't happen to much. Sorry Brandon and MM I missed yuh.
    Oh and I don't like hardcore :)
