    Recently Christian Allen, a veteran of game development branched off and created his own company Serellan LLC. His new companies vision?

    "TacticalGamer: it's a community. It's not a clan. It's not exclusive in any way. But there's a certain ethos to it. It's that we want to have a mature, fun game. So a lot of the problems you see in console gaming, or just the behaviour issues, just don't exist in TG ... This community is fantastic."

    The TacticalGamer ProjectReality:Arma 2 v.015 Beta server currently enjoys the 2nd highest Arma 2 game server rank on the planet with recent epic single rounds involving as many as 100 players.

    Considered by many to be the most realistic military simulator in the world, and described as "the Thinking Man's game", Arma 2 under the Project Reality mod has gone from strength to strength. Under the tutelage of the cigar-toting, whiskey-and-fire-breathing Wicks and the rest of the TG admin team (including Paintscratcher, Unk, Socomseal, Axis_Sniper, Jeepo etc), the server has achieved renewed popularity, generating a landslide of after-action-reports, YouTube videos, forum posts, and screenshots. ...

    The title of this article should say it all ladies and gentlemen, the Future of Eve Online is a Bright one. With the release of Eve's latest expansion named "Crucible" CCP games has returned to the basics and the most important section of Eve Online, the Space Game. Now this doesn't mean we wont see plenty of juicy information on Dust 514, or continued iteration on Incarna elements, but as it stands for now CCP has focused on re-building the old and making it new and better. Crucible has brought a wide range of updates, quality of life improvements and has seen plenty of iteration. In this article I'll attempt to cover as much of Crucible as I can, focusing on Key Points while looking to the future of Eve Online and stopping at an interview with Eve Online's Creative Director, Tofi Frans Olafsson. So sit back and enjoy the ride, because if you're like me and you love the unique Sci Fi world of Eve..then you'll love what the future holds. Let's get started. ...

    Dreams
    Have you ever had a dream? Ever wanted to make a game or see a game made that gave you the ultimate playground experience? Was that dream linked to space exploration? Well one person had that dream and it came true, and as you'll see coming up in the next two videos, that game is Kerbal Space Program. Made by an indie game Dev known as "Squad". A Mexico city based marketing company trying to transition to game development and starting with a rather ambitious project. So, let's get started taking a look at this wonderful little game?

    The Idea
    So what is KSP you ask? Well basically, right now, it's a game about building spaceships, testing them, experiencing failure and building off that failure to do something better the second time. The future on the other hand is full of possibilities and potential as the lead designer and his team really want to make the ultimate space playground experience. They want to allow the player to build their own space program, and eventually venture into building their own solar empire. ...

    Yes folks I know we're a "tactical" gaming site but I wanted to share with you this news about a "strategic" level game that I myself have been enjoying.....


    Epsom , UK , January 20th, 2011 – Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) would like to congratulate The Lordz Games Studio (www.thelordzgamesstudio.com) for winning the Usenet’s Wargame of the Year Award 2011! This coveted honor is bestowed upon the best historical wargame of the year and, given the near universal critical and fan acclaim of Panzer Corps, the award is no surprise!

    About Panzer Corps:

    Panzer Corps is a brand new turn-based strategy game that reinvents a classic genre. Produced and developed by a team of experts and brought to perfection by a community of hundreds of fans, the game has evolved over 2 years to become what can be defined as a modern classic! Set in World War II, Panzer Corps puts the player in charge of Axis armies, taking their core force with them through the entire war. The use of combined-arms tactics requires each general to make use of the strengths and exploit the weaknesses of their opponents. Panzer Corps is designed to replicate the feeling of a classic wargame, but brings it up to 21st century standards and to a whole new generation of gamers. ...
