yep, downloading now.
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. 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.
Oh yeah, superbowl bound
You're not superbowl bound. You live in Idaho.
Thanks it is a Great day !
Excuse me ? I have been a fan since long before you were a sperm
I never said I was Superbowl bound. Drop the hate they earned it.
Now this is a BF3 thread, not "Puss9ers are going to the Superbowl" thead.
That's pretty cool. I kind of like that guy, too, at least his BF3 videos and Planetside 2 tutorials. Much more impressive than Gator's unknown fella.
Well...FINE I'LL GO TAKE HIS TAGS TOO!
Get on it soldier!
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?
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.
Battlelog - January Premium Competition: Be the best team player you can be
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.
I had my best round in a long time, 20 javelin kills
Nice !I love watching a Jav kill. 20 times in one round would be the shit.
I see the 6870 is still in your machine. That is a good card. I'm leaning
Green now though. Out of the 5 computers I have in the house only
one is ATI and that is my Laptop.
Lots of double and triple kills 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
I been slacking off on the Weapon Reviews, finally got another out. Got to kick it back into gear and try and get some others out soon.
