Default Tribes - Free!

With the Tribes: Vengeance release looming Sierra decided to put the full downloadable version of Tribes on their website.

So get it already! It's a damn fine game.

Yes, and Tribes 2 for that matter - though that got withdrawn because they 'ran out of' CD Keys.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

I had a friend buy this game on the premise that I'd pay him back which I never did, because we both forgot until two years later when no one cared about the twenty dollars anymore.

Edit: Retarded Starseige won't let me play in OpenGL mode. Stupid old games.

Sorry if it's old news guys. I just read this in my new PC Gamer, but still, the game rocks!

The game is fun except for there not being any players, heh. The easy mods are nice, though.

The download is 1.8 so you only need 1.8 to 1.11 and the Map Pack (if you want it).

Vengeance isn't bad. Not sure what my opinion is on it yet. It's better than T2, but...well, I dunno.

So many games have come out since, I'm not sure Tribes "has it" anymore. I mean, Planetside does the 'futuristic team-based combat' MUCH better, even the new Vengeance does not have that impressive graphics (compared to UT2K4 and Doom3), etc.

It's...alright. And, it's Tribes. But....oh, I dunno.
