Mum! Dad’s blowing things up again!

May 3: Well, there goes my life again. The video game which ate up all my spare time a while ago – Tribes – has a new version out. Tribes 2 is a cool game; mainly because you’re competing against real people through the net. It’s not about running around and shooting people, either (well, not entirely), it’s got a heap of strategy and teamwork built in: you can’t win without co-operating which a bunch of other people, most of whom aren’t even in the same country as you. It’s got a good sense of humour about it, too (The phrase ‘Shazbot’ shows up more than once :-) A chocolate frog for the first person to tell me the original reference…). For more information, there’s a special section in Bonwag here (of course).
