AAH WHAT THE HECK
Side note: As I clicked "new topic" some music from Tribes came up in Winamp. Spooky.
Anyone who's seen this list
is beholden to a sad, dastardly truth: that Sierra's giving the axe to the server or magic machine or whatever that somehow powers some sort of Starsiege mojo.
I don't really know what they're shutting down, or what that thing does, but I bet it's really bad. I think it kills the game or something.
That's no good! Starsiege: Tribes is the best game ever made, and although not everyone agrees with me, enough people do, and they plus me form a block that cannot go neglected! Without our Tribes we're going to have to do something really awful, like play Tribes 2. That's not a substitute! It's like UT2k4's Onslaught mode or something! God forbid we ever get pushed over to Tribes: Vengeance. Don't even get me started on that laser rifle.
Anyone else have fond memories of Tribes? Mine aren't so much memories as feelings since I still play the game every once in a while (a practice which I think is now coming to an end
), but boy oh boy is that a great game. The jetpacks? Revolutionary. The huge maps and gigantic number of players? Set the stage for Battlefield 1942 and multiplayer games today. The ability to do the funky chicken dance or yell "SHAZBOT" at the top of your lungs in six different voices? Priceless. The way the terrain would sort of warp when you approached it at high speeds from the air? Sort of weird, but you got used to it. The seamless integration of user-made mods that fit right in to the server and didn't require any downloading, which allowed gameplay changes? NS2's copying it, it's so awesome. The 3 base vehicle types? A little limiting, but whatever. The laser rifle? So awesome.
We <3 you, Tribes. Sierra can take you from the Intertubes, but it can't take you from our hearts. At least, not as easily. They'd need knives.
And they're also killing the SWAT 3 demo. Those horrible, horrible people.
