Default Without doubt, the best upcoming release of 2011.

A bit late on this, but it's worth it.

Call of Duty 482? Been there. Done that.
Arkham City? Close, but no cigar.
Halo remake? Fuck off.

Tribes: Ascend. This is what I've been waiting for since Vengeance disappointingly never really took off.

With any luck, this will be the pinnacle. Unreal Engine 3? Check. Tribes gameplay? Check. A time when people aren't primarily playing on dial-up? LET'S DO THIS.

Just give me Tribes 1 remake, without all the stupid bullshit mods that happened for the last 2/3's of it's lifespan and I'll be a happy as all get out again.

Seriously? I loved a lot of the mods that came along in the later parts of the game's life, even moreso the dev attention and proper balance/implementation they got for T2.

Whoa, it's been forever since these games have popped up on the radar. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to get into them back in their prime. Hopefully this game will live up to its name!

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

So with Deus Ex 3, Elder Scrolls V and The Secret World coming out in 2011 you picked Tribes...? Yeah..

It was a legend. Then came Halo: CE and everyone forgot that one.

Meh. Sure it's got to be on most people's radars, but they're too mainstream and "mass appeal" for me. I feel dirty playing BioWare games now that they've made a robot to create the plot and characters purely from algorithms and adopted a "The Sims" release schedule/ add-on policy.

My jaw literally dropped through my floor, through the apartment beneath me and is now wedged somewhere within the Earth's core. I can't believe this... I've been saying they need to make a new Starsiege game for many years, and now it looks like it's actually happening.

Final analysis: Fuck yeah!

If this game does not turn out to be cataclysmically epic, I'm going to... to... figure out what I'm going to do under such disillusionous rage later.

Deus Ex 3, while probably amazing, won't be as good as the first. This is a given.
Skyrim? Maybe six months after release when it's been patched (It is Bethesda, after all)
Secret World? Never heard of it, no interest in checking it up. Sounds consoley.

Tribes was the pinnacle of multiplayer gaming, doing what nobody thought it could and improving on the core multiplayer gameplay of UT. Shit, UT04/3 pretty much wholesale ripped off (albeit entertainingly and still brilliantly) the large scale combat system T2 used.

This can only be brilliant. The devs made Global Agenda, which, while not the best game in the world, is sure as hell entertaining and that's what's important. If anyone in today's scene can do this well, I have confidence it's them.
