By "Live" I mean that it will soon be a fully released Title, I know there's already a topic but I felt it understated how good Tribes Ascend
actually is. I've been playing since Alpha (Spent 30$ on it) and since then I haven't touched any other game. If your looking for something thats
different to the usual games coming out now days I urge you to check it out. Tribes Ascend It's completly free so
you don't need to pay a single cent to get into what is currently a "open beta".
To celebrate the game soon being released Hi-Rez have released a Parody trailer called Llama Island and if you've ever played any other Tribes game
then you should get a laugh out of it.
Sh*t.. is it really fun? I actually got into the beta but I literally only played 5 minutes of it. I got in the D3 beta also so a lot of my gaming
time has been in that. Maybe I'll re-download Tribes...
The developers of Halo state that the original Tribes (released in 1998) was their inspiration.
Basically its a first person shooter centred mainly around Capture The Flag type gameplay, You have projectile weapons (meaning they arent instant
like most shooters) and jetpacks. By holding space bar you "Ski" down hills asif there was no friction reaching speeds of 200kph +. It's strictly on
online game 14 v 14. The basic premise is pretty much that simple but once you jump into it you realize there's alot more depth to it then that. There
are 3 different class types (Light, Medium, Heavy) each have their own semi customizable weapons and perks.
This is probably a better video to showcase whats possible and give a basic idea of the game. You may want to mute the audio though (terrible).

It really reminds me of the surfing maps on CSS.
I imagine if it went to Xbox it would/should be XBLA title.
It does look good, but for now i'm into Gotham City Impostors (though I haven't played in 2 weeks).
Got Zelda Skyward Sword and Midnight Club LA. I don't know why I bought them I have so many games I need to complete first.
