Hi-Rez’s free-to-play shooter Tribes: Ascend is doing quite well — it has been downloaded 1.2 million times in its first month, with 110,000 people joining through the game’s friend-referral system.


  • Cool cool. I should get back to playing that, was fun but then I got distracted by Mass Effect 3 and its multi.

  • played my first game of this a few days ago. Not sure how i feel about the mechanics, but definitely fun.

  • pain the butt to loaded using the official installer … was doing 2K for me at one point – i ended up uninstalling the thing

  • Hilariously unbalanced garbage. The developers are just making constant blind money-grabs.

    Pushing for an ‘e-sport’ when each community has their own rules, and has to try and tweak the game rules via private servers to make anything even remotely playable and balanced.

  • It’s not hideously imbalanced. The teams are symmetrical. You could argue that some classes are more powerful than others, but in all the pub games I’ve played, winning comes down mostly to which team is actually working as a team and focussing on the objectives (as opposed to just trying to get meaningless kills). Yeah some classes are better at straight duelling, but if you’re doing that, you’re wasting a slot on the team.
