    "OMG ur so gay."

    The differences between adolescent and adult gamers is in many ways clear to the members of Tactical Gamer (TG). Anyone who spends more than a few moments on a 'pubbie' server -- a largely unmoderated public online game environment -- can see the difference in the text-based game chat. Comments tend towards the homophobic, racist, and misogynistic and often reflect childhood anxieties over parentage, sexuality, gender, and difference (for a child, there are few things more fearful than being seen as different). ...

    The following is from PC Magazine. If you were a die hard Duke Nukem fan, this should get your heart beating!
    PC Magazine Sept. 4 2010 - The long-troubled -- and previously aborted -- development of Duke Nukem Forever is getting a new life, as 2K Games revealed Friday morning at PAX that the game is not only in development but is playable on the show floor.
    The game's coming to the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC for 2011. Gearbox Software is finishing development, after the demise of originator 3D Realms about a year ago, despite repeated commitments to revive the game. A version for the iPhone shipped last summer.

    "I can't believe it, either," said Gearbox Software CEO and President Randy Pitchford in the livestream showing off the game. " You guys [the crowd at PAX] are among the first people in the world to play it. "I know it's hard to believe, but it's totally real. We can't let the Duke die."

    GamePro did a review of the game. See it HERE.

    Red Orchestra is back at TG with a vengeance! Seemingly overnight players have started to play again, and are starting to remember just how much fun this game actually is.

    Because of the surge in gamer population, a 24/7 TG Darkest Hour Server was set up. Complete with tweaked settings for our style of play, a few extra maps (more being added daily), and a few other nifty features.

    For those that have not played this game:
    Darkest Hour: Europe '44-'45 is a western front modification for Red Orchestra. It focuses on the Allied invasion from the Normandy campaign in 1944, through the failed Operation Market Garden in Holland and beyond the Battle of the Bulge. It covers not only the intense infantry battles the campaign is so well known for, but also includes the epic large scale tank battles that took place in the later stages of the war. Beta 3.0 is currently available for download on Steam here.

    The ArmA Pathfinders are a way of recognizing leadership. It is a prestigious position to hold within our community much like PCS is with Counter Strike. Pathfinders are leaders in and out of the server, and provide solid leadership as well as mentorship to all players. They are capable of leading missions, training players, and helping to foster this community as one of maturity and respect.

    Recently, the Pathfinders have fallen from the eyes of the players. When asked; “What is a Pathfinder”, the response most times was “...an Admin”. The current Admin Team and Pathfinder Members have been working hard to revamp the entire program, and bring it to the forefront of TG ArmA.

    It is with great honor that I, as an Admin as well as a current Pathfinder, present you with the fruits of our labor. ...

    Men of War is not a "new" title per say, but it certainly is a super fun, addicting, and ultimately entertaining. The 12th have been playing this for a while, but we started out only experimenting with the campaign through co-op. While this was addicting in itself, it does eventually end, (the main campaign anyway). So we decided to venture out into the world of the multi-player.

    This is where the fun continued, and got even more addicting. One night of playing a week, turned into two nights, and so forth. We tried promoting this game in the past, but I believe a lot of people compare it to Company of Heroes, while a great game, it's nothing like COH.
