Nice, hopefully it plays more like original tribes / 2 than the one they made last.

Multiplayer only is the rotting cancer on the games industry.

Multiplayer-only XBLA game? Probably pass on that one (unless the online community is as high as Battlefield 1943, which i doubt will be).

Forcing a single player campaign in a Tribes game doesn't work so well. They did it once before and it was pretty much a completely different game partly as the result. It's like trying to make a single player Counterstrike.

Hmmm, never played a Tribes game, but are these original designs? I mean the gun shape and display along with the towers in the background look like they were ripped straight out of Halo. Then again, maybe it was the other way around...

Oh knock it off. How many games actually ship that way? VERY few. And usually they have at least decent MP. In cases like Team Fortress 2, they are amazing. That game STILL is one of my favorite and most played games.

Check your eyes old man, you can pretty clearly see aliasing, level of detail ont he textures and all that. And on top of that, the assets don't really look spectacular, they just don't look awful and are pretty clean and sharp.
Go back to crying wolf.

It only barely looks like halo, and the guns look nothing like Halo weapons. Halo did not bring about that on-gun display. One might even argue they didn't really make it popular even, considering it was such a small thing.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth problem with such platforms is they will only work with software where they can extract motion data, and having no standards there, they have build support for each individual game. (27 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @MrWhite: gotta untwist those cords (29 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite What I want to know is, what if the game glitches? (47 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's a strange thing. I reckon being tossed around physically like that would help with certain sims, though. If not, yeah, you're projectile vomiting all over the gaff. LOL that would be hilarious. (48 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: I mean, part of the problem I've experienced is when you move without moving. I can feel my head go "Whoa! What's going on here?! I didn't send the signal to move!" (49 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: Locomotion. Wouldn't that help making your mind believe what its seeing a bit more for motion sickness? (51 minutes ago)

    rayy @alimokrane: Sometimes I think you care more about the viewpoint than if the game is fun lol. (1 Hour ago)
