    *Runs around my house yelling WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!*

    Tribes: Ascend is (supposedly) coming out this year! Now we can show these Halo idiots what a REAL game is!

    Look! it even has a trailer!

    Oh, and remember that really old game called rock paper scissors?

    Getting excited over a game that is being developed by a completely different studio that had only made one rather lame game?

    Don't smash your keyboard when game comes out.

    I would be better if they made a modern Starsiege, or another mechanized combat game in the Earthsiege universe (which is damned underrated for how amazing it really is).

    a couple Tribes titles are in development. 'Ascend' is the smaller one for XBLA & PC. probably the wrong one to get excited for :laugh:

    you have made my year!!!! or perhaps decade (as its been 10 years since tribes 1)....
    I remember this game got me into FPS gaming and upgrading for games..... went and bought a Riva TNT2 with 32mb ram which was kickass at the time and cost a fortune lololol....

    Have high hopes for this!!!! :D

    lol... how old are you ... as when this game came out it was cutting edge and still has apsects of gaming that havent been recreated to date.... i think if i were to have played it for the first time a few years after launch i would share a similar outlook, but this game had a major impact on me in both gaming and computer hardware/modding/upgrading.

    I was also an expert at the renegade mod (heavy armour class) in the games and have never found a game with that much skill level needed to succeed! hope my reflexes havent slowed down that much as id like to be pwning once again tribes style ;)

    In case you still haven't realized, Tribes: Ascend is developed by the very new Hi-rez studios who has only made one game called Global Agenda and it kinda sucked.

    Could be good. I loved Tribes 2. Tribes 3 was a great game, but they went up against UT2K4 and lost.

    I am rather excited even if it is a new developer. I am still sitting around waiting for a new Quake or Unreal Tournament :/

    Yeah it's easy to miss the news as it's in a spoiler tag--this has been announced as Free To Play. Too early too tell if that's good or bad I'd venture...
