Tribes: Ascend  



First footage of free-to-play Tribes: Ascend


6:30 PM on 06.28.2011



Our first look at Tribes: Ascend in motion naturally includes plenty of soldiers zipping across large spaces, and many a firing laser rifle. What else did you expect from a Tribes game?

This beta footage comes with the news that Ascend has now moved itself into free-to-play territory; I feel like I've written this story five times in the past week alone. The announcement makes sense given the title in question, and seems like something Hi-Rez Studios would do.

Tribes: Ascend is currently on for a fall release.

There's a weird subdivision of people who will only play PC games if they are on Steam. I understand the basic notion of this (it's easier), but I do not understand the fundamentalists who follow this notion. Shouldn't you wa...more

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
