Just played a bit of Tribes: Ascend. It's pretty cool. It rides the line between chaotic and smart well. It's almost like a first person SSX with guns. it has this skiing mechanic that becomes natural after just a few minutes, and I think it might make other shooters seem hobbled in comparison.

Check it out. If you do, I'm TungstenSt4

EDIT: Did I mention it's free?

It's pretty laid back about it too. I don't get OMG YOU COULD HAVE THE COOLEST WEAPON NOW $9.95 kay?

And skiing is so much fun.

Downloading it now. Kind of don't like it when companies impose a password character limit. My current password has some different characters in it and Tribes didn't like that. I had to resort to a less secure password.

Since I am a programmer I lend them no quarter in limiting the characters you put in a password, there is not reason for it these days.

Anyways, hope the rest of the game isn't as unfortunate.

The game is very reminiscent of old Tribes. The jetpacks are very fun. Got my ass handed to me in multi-player but it was quite a bit of fun anyway.
