Default Blacklight Retribution

This game is free to play and is now live. Has anyone looked into it and want to check it out? I miss the old cries of "bullshit" on vent.

I did try Blacklight, but it was very laggy, even when I tweaked the graphics. My internet connection is 27Mbits and my hardware is very good, so this was disappointing and suggests server side lag. In the fights where lag was somewhat improved, the game was descent fun, and the maps were varied and intricate enough to harbor many defensible spots and sniping perches.

The good news is, Tribes: Ascend joins the free to play games today. This one adds high velocity flight to the FPS genre, and features wide open arenas. I will definately give this one a try, as the graphics also look very sharp.
