Tribes Ascend is a relatively new free to play first person shooter just out of open beta now fully released which is really in my opinion one of the
first innovative fps games we have seen in a long time in a relatively dark era for PC gaming! . The main outstanding differences I can see with
this game is the skiing system which definatly makes for an addictingly-fun fast-paced style of gaming for old-school gamers out there.
The game is beautifully balanced around the classes and there really is no one class beats all. Another interesting mechanic is that in the capture
the flag gametype both teams have a generator, this generator on every map powers up the bases turrets, radar and also any player-deployed turrets /
shields so this is a huge element to the gametype which if left unguarded can negatively affect your team.
I'll leave a video of a review of Tribes by IGN here is a link to create a free account for the game.
I've never played the first Tribes myself but I reckon this might even make it into mainstream for PC gaming . People like Totalbiscuit have done
commentaries on it too and I've been having great fun with it recently. Only thing I wish was different was me having a better computer.
I've never heard of Serious Sam myself but . If anyone would like to add me once they are in-game add Wulfgarh. I think soon they are bringing
out ranked matches too which could be interesting if they are aiming to make it an eSport .
