Default Tribes Ascend

So is anyone playing Tribes Ascend? Game is a freaking blast and addicting as crack. Check it out if you want something that's a fun FPS. I'll be on there as Thurstbuster. That's my name cause that's what was in front of me while playing.


I'm not a clever man.

The last FPS I played was tribes 1 which I still do from time to time but FAIL due to Meg's insistence on a trackball.

Why don't modern FPS have jetpacks, fo real?!

Halo Reach has jet packs. FYI. They're epic. I'm also going to look into this.

NOT JUST JET PACKS! BUT SKIS TOO!

You just hold space bar going down hill and you haul ***. ---- sprinting, you glide across the place. It's ------- fun. Grab a flag going 200kph (i think that's what they measure it in...) is intense.

I got in the beta pretty early but never actually installed it. Spent many-a-hours playing the original tribes. Might finally install it this weekend.

Keep in mind this game has a super steep learning curve. Just play it and have fun.

Dammit it doesn't work on the lap top! Took 5 minutes just to turn the graphics all the way down, and then another five minutes to navigate the skippy mouse to "quit".

Yea, the learning curve can be intense. You need to learn the dynamics of how the weapons fire, the splash damage, and how shitty being a sniper is. Seriously, don't waste EXP on the sniper class. You have more fun and do more damage as a doom bringer chain gunner. I rape apes as that guy, and it's actually kind of hard to do well since everyone moves so god damn fast.
