lol, I don't know if thats a good thing. Release day "patch"?

btw, seriously doubt there's enough Tribes players here to start a clan but if I rented a server, we'd definitely have a UT2k4 ONS one though.

I loved Tribes, but I'm wondering if I want more of the same with T:V or if I should try something different like SW: Battlefront. It seems that Battlefront has way worse reviews, but a lot of the people I talk to who have played it really like it.

I have to pick one, but not sure which

The maps in retail are awesome I'm seeing my Ultra getting a run for it's money on some of the larger ones.

Looks great!

EBGames. For some reason I literally have 4 EBs, 3 Gamestops and 2 Rhinos within 10-15 miles of the house.

Pimp, have pretty much the same situation here, just we seem to get everything later than everyone else. Newayz, looks like Gamestop round my way has it. Don't know if I'll have anytime to play tonight though cause my PC-V1000B is coming in & I gotta help my brother install his new system into my old ATCS-111c case. Good times

btw, post some screenies of the new maps!

Gamestop/EB had copies avail back on 10/6. Looks like shipments are slower to reach some of the larger retailers though as our Bestbuy & Compusa still donít have the game in stock either.

.

hmm....well, luckily i've got a tiny Gamestop near my house i can check today.

usually they're out of anything new or popular though, since their stock levels are so low.

i guess that's the price i pay for living in a city storefront community.

humph...i don't know.

T:V seems just barely more than a deathmatch/CTF game with vehicles and jetpacks...no better than Unreal Tourney 2004.

i've played for about 3 hours on various servers, and barely anyone uses the defensive tactics with turrets and mines etc..

the tank is abominably bad...single man flying vehicles are okay.

most sounds are cheesy...the whistle of the mortars doesn't seem like it belongs. turrets are very clunky feeling...actually the whole game feels clunky.

mortar guns don't seem to have the same distance...much less...less accurate for long range stuff. sniper rifle seems very underpowered.

don't know if i like the 3 guns for every armor loadout aspect either.

no force fields so you can protect your entrances from mortars and suicide bombers? you have to wait around for various ships/flyers to spawn without being able to order them up? no targeting laser?

doesn't anyone miss the complex defensive setups that T1 and T2 had?

some qualifications after another 4 hours of play.

figured out the quick faves motions...although F is a bit close to G which tosses a grenade in your lap when you're in a hurry and pisses your teammates off pretty nicely.

Mortar distace is good i guess...but the heavy just doesn't carry enough of them.

skiing is absolutely first rate...

heavies are too easy to kill, single flying ship is too slow. rocket gun isn't very accurate.

some of the maps are quite brilliant and seem to have high level of replayability.
love the city maps, the terrain can be your worst enemy or your best friend.
maps load FAST - i like that.

anyone have trouble getting the repair pack to restart after it's depleted?
i keep hitting the button to activate the pack, but it seems like it has a mind of it's own. that would get VERY aggravating during a heavy onslaught where time is of the essence in getting your base back online.

i love the look of the game, although even on the high settings for textures, the foliage on the ground seems to be made of sprites...dunno...also - that's the only time my game gets a bit choppy, when i'm running through a lot of foliage that's blowing in the wind while getting attacked.

i'm not sure i'll be able to get over the lack of defensive strategy and deployables - that added so much pleasure for me in both T1 and T2.

overall, after 12 hours of play : 7 out of 10 stars *******
