Tribes is to Halo as a Fighter Jet is to an Aston Martin. Yeah, the aston's great, but up against a fighter jet?

In my experience, those of us who look down on Halo as a noob shooter (a good game nonetheless, I've poured countless hours into it), hail from the golden days of Tribes, Unreal Tournament and Counterstrike.

This gives me goose bumps. Tribes 2 is my all time favorite game.

I literally have watched that montage 5 or so times in a row. That blew my mind. But I don't think I'd play it. I have an inkling of how far above the norm those guys are, but I also have an inkling that the norm would be rather crazy players too

Cool stuff

And anybody who does know the awesomeness of Tribes should know that Tribes:Vengeance was the Spiderman 3 of the franchise

And what is supposed to catch my eye in that video, the actual game play or the seizure inducing video editing bling? Got rice?

Sure, the technical prowess is impressive, but its just overdone and detracts from the feats accomplished in game.

Personally, I liked Vengeance because it placed more of an emphasis on fast-paced infantry combat and it had a bit of a Quake feel to it. Players could really showcase their individual skill in Vengeance (all those crazy airshots in that montage are a testament to that).

It looks like Ascend is bringing back the massive maps and vehicles, which I have nothing against. It'll definitely be fun at a pub level, but I hope there will also be a lot of competitive merit to the game and things that happened in that montage will be possible in Ascend.

This looks awesome, never got around to playing the other Tribes although I always meant to. Gameplay looks a bit like old school rail arena that I used to play all the time.

Now that looks good! Been a player of Tribes since version 2. Good times Unfortunately, Vengeance didn't do it for me. Something about Tribes 2 that still holds dear to me gameplay wise.
