Our most awesome readers will remember the unbelievably good times that were had (and can still be had for free) in the original Tribes. I was a god in that game with the laser rifle at 50x zoom. The sequels haven’t been as good (some better than others), but that isn’t stopping Hi-Rez Studios from attempting another one, which I desperately hope is good. It’s called Tribes: Ascend, and you can watch the announcement trailer here, though there’s no gameplay footage (argh!).
