you want me to beat you with da stick, don't you?

I've only been talking about this since the dawn of this board's time!

YOU HEAR ME PEOPLE! I SAID IT FIRST!! ME FIRST! ME ME ME!

btw, first evar video is out now (just assembled ragdoll footage)

here is the link to the article-
http://www.gamespy.com/interviews/august03/mahnken/

here is a link to the video (note the compression is MPEG2, so you may need a coded- wtf where these guys NOT thinking!?)

http://www.fileplanet.com/files/120000/128519.shtml (162 MB)

NOTE: This is the ragdoll video, and only 35% of the game is done (pre-alpha) so bear that in mind. W00t! Tribes rocks!1!

Oh yeah, some guys are working on better compression.. I'll update once that's done.. oh and I hate fileplanet

hmm, ive noticed 2 things that I think are bad about Tribes: vengeance. First, there are only 4 vehicles, which is 2 less than Tribes 2 . And they say they are not gonna have as much in-game support for Tribes(clans) which is dumb. But everything else sounds and looks awesome.:cool guy:

Well, I still waant to see what vehicles they have in.. but I think it'll be okay.

Oh and the support will cover what you need in-game, aeverything else will be external (www) though (I'm guessing t-mail, forums and the player/clan browser will be gone. Though those did rock)

I know one of the vehicles has got to be the be the shrike (or similar) it's gotta be.. the other a transport (maybe?) then.. i really don't know.. heh we'll see I guess.

Well they gotta have a bomber, and a jericho. I guess I can live without the grav tank, and they really dont need the grav cycle(I hardly use it anyways.) oooo I cant wait to see what the motar blast looks like.

I guess my tribe will have to make a web site on the net now:irked" sigh...no more t-mail

Halo will do better than tribes for console, but Tribes will do better than halo for console and halo on computer combined.

4 vehicles only? Sheesh, maybe they should let their programmers play a game or two of Battlefield 1942 to see how its REALLY done.

Same reason everyone seems to think Halo is so much fun. Only the levels are larger and theres way more people. etc etc things I've forgotten.

No, what makes Halo so much fun is that it's a great SINGLE PLAYER game... you have to have be a online gaming buff to enjoy any of the Tribes games. And please, after Tribes 2, Halo owns it... if Tribes Vengence has a good singleplayer mode, then maybe it would own Halo... but just Halo. I'm with gearhound... oh god the world is endding, I can't believe I said that... Halo 2 owns right now well after HL2 that is.

Quiet you ninnies!!

Tribes clearly set forth the whole "massive" multiplayer experience. Oh and don't even bring up the whole Tribes 2 catastrophe.. if you were lucky enough to run it, you could have fun with it (provided you did not miss the speed of Tribes)

Regardless, Halo was clearly influenced by Tribes and you cannot deny that. of course, changes took place once MS bought it- but you can still see the resemblance, particularly in multiplayer... for which even your beloved Battle 1942 gives a nod to. Though Halo may have superior physics, neither it nor 1942 have (yet) what makes the Tribes franchise great- jetpacks. And with Vengeance, Irrational Games looks to deliver a solid single-player experience and, of course, bring back the excellent multiplayer.

Sweet times, here we come... (Q4 2004)

What the alien said. Tribes was intended as a multiplayer game through and through. Halo's single player game is NOTHING special. Deus Ex ownz it. Oh Kid, 1942 NOW has Jetpacks!
