    Been talking to Shanto about this one and I am pretty sure I am going to buy the pre-order pack and start playing.

    The game looks good and compared to the modern shooters that we have been playing recently, this looks a lot like the stuff I used to play when I was younger, so I am really interested in picking it up.

    I think if I buy it I get a couple of extra invite codes, so if I do I will offer them up.

    Think KC wouldn't mind a new WW2 shooter though, a proper one. However I'm not interested in Tribes either, think the only FPS that could get my interest now would be DOOM 4, for a short time and I couldn't care about the multiplayer. Genre is not innovative anymore, can't really blame developers. We've just seen it all I think :).

    Please prove me wrong.

    We see shooters right now because gaming is now a popular thing and shooters are cool and realistic games for cool kids. Fantasy stuff is too nerdy for the masses.

    I don't think you have to be innovative anymore in FPS to make an amazing game.

    All you need to do is put lock the accountants in a cupboard and get your copy of Quake out and say hey, lets make this with better graphics and make it a PC only release and to hell what the console kids and the bank manager thinks!!!

    Chances of that happening in todays world are pretty slim though.

    Although, Tribes is a PC only release. So the whole thing is optimised for mouse and keyboard on the PC, which to me gives it a great chance to be something special as the one thing I dislike about BF3, as much as I love the game, is that you can tell when your playing it that it is made to suit a controller.

    @Feidan - Nerdyness is cool!!!!! ^^

    Over 1200 pounds!!!!!! WTF!!!!

    Seriously, I am going to go chop up and set fire to some of my old clothes and sell them on ebay for like 500 quid an item.

    On the topic of tribes....

    The game is free to play, but if you pay £19.99, you get instant beta access, your beta stats are not wiped as you are added as a VIP member and you get like £40 worth of Microtransaction shop currency to spend come retail. Anyone else thinking of picking up this offer ?

    I know @adagio must be tempted and also hating me for adding to his every growing pile of "games he must play".

    At least there are no skins which makes it less greedy of a business model then LoL.

    Probably buy it later tonight just to support the devs. I'll add it to the list plus I now have a list of games I want to buy.

    On topic, it looks like Halo: Reach? Why would you do that to yourself.

    Don't see what it has in common with Halo..., the only thing that might get a bit close to this is Jedi Knight 2 Disruptor rifle Instagib matches with Force Jump :). It's fun..for a while.

    The reason they were compared was simply because of one map. If you remember the redvsblue halo films the map they used was almost the same look as a tribes map.

    Don't mention that in a tribes forum. They are a very passionate group when it comes to the old game.
