MMOFPS... The new kind of free shooter games are starting to flood the market, I remember when Combat Arms was released a few years ago, it was for the most part the only quality free shooter around. I know that it was full of cheaters but that is not the point, cheaters are everywhere and because of that, I rather focus this blog entry into the quality of the current free shooters in the market.
Right now, the amount of shooters in the market is not so low anymore, we have plenty of free shooters but only a handful of those are worth playing. I never had the chance to play them all, but I play some of them right now and I also played some other free shooters...
So here is my list of the free shooters that are worth playing. If you think that another free shooter or MMOFPS should be added into the list, let me know, I see what I can do with another extra game in my list of installed games.
BLR is one of those shooters that are really worth playing, the game ha

Hey peeps, a few days ago I reinstalled my Tribes: Ascend client and decided to give the game another go, the first thing I notice is that now the game have another gameplay mode, 'CTF Blitz'. Needlessly to say it, I played it like no tomorrow for a whole day.
What exactly is the big deal between CTF Blitz and just CTF???? The only big difference is that in CTF Blitz the flag moves around to a different place if you or one of your team mates capture it... The same goes if the enemy 'cap' your flag.
That kinda looks insignificant because you are playing in the same maps with the same classes and the same equipment but if you consider that in CTF the strategy is the same all the time and from all the sudden you need to adapt and move your defenses around and take a different approach if you want to capture the flag like a lightning bolt. You will notice that the whole mechanic of moving the flag around turns into a big deal!
'CTF Blitz' is kinda cool if you are tire of the same old sc

Its been a long time since I have wrote in article and I am just going to talk about a subject that has been coming up.
What do you guys think of the new free to play games on Steam? Do you think that you would have ever tried them if they weren't on Steam? It does seem like Free to Play is the future. Subscriptions seem to be disappearing. World of Warcraft has been losing considerable subscribers. Guild Wars 2 is just a Buy to Play game which i think is great.
Sorry if I am getting off topic. There is over 50 Free to play games on Steam and it is continuing to grow. With popular games such as Vindictus from Nexon and Tribes: Ascend from Hi-Rez Studios. And I can't forget the Steam game Team Fortress 2. I am glad that now I can communicate with my friends easier through this.
Do you guys t

Hey peeps, once again I am playing Tribes... This time I am checking out the new map and features added a few days ago in a friggin patch. I have to be very honest, this new CTF map "Tartarus" Is one hell of a map!!! If you ask me, Hi-rez just made the best map in the whole game lol!...
The new map is so perfect, it have everything I need to laugh and have some fun, Tons of hills all around the place for me to speed up and a nice reactor in the perfect place for me to enter quickly, throw some Fractal Grenades, DIE!!!!, and take a few enemy players with me.
Its kinda hard to explain how to pull the stunt in this map, so I just recorded a few of my moves for you peeps to see...
One last thing, The 'Brute' used to be my favorite class and now I like it even more.... I got a 7% damage

Hi-rez games announced on their blog, that today is the day that they're popular free-to-play shooter Tribes: Ascend will officially launch. Yep, no more beta phases to go through, but that shouldn't stop you from bug reporting when you find something amiss. The game is self claimed as the "world's fasted shooter" and features jet packs, skiing, vehicles, and team based gameplay all centered around the Unreal 3 engine.
The release build of the game features 9 playable classes, 5 game-modes for you to try out, and a staggering 16 unique maps. I say staggering, because if you've played any free-to-play shooter, you know most only come with maybe 6 or so maps. So usually there isn't much variety, but this one decided to do different and pass the standard by

For those of you who were fans of the original Tribes game, Tribes ascend plays a lot like the original Tribes but has the added bonus of being free to play. There are jet packs which still allow you to fly and now you can "Ski" across any surface if you hold down a key, but this is affected by slopes. Currently the game has capture the flag and rabbit game types with 3 maps in CTF so far and yes it is still a first person shooter, except with jetpacks and fast paced movement. Jet packs and skiing really make Tribes different from a normal FPS. While skiing, you move pretty fast so if you can get a good distance between yourself and someone who isn't skiing, they won't be able to catch or kill you. The jetpack that everyone gets also make
