    Magicka is a new title from the Swedish development team Arrowhead Game Studios. It is a spell casting centered game that features single and multiplayer game modes. A unique spell casting system and a sense of humor set it apart from any other game that I have played.

    Magic is where Magicka shines. The magic system is original and wonderfully open-ended. The spells’ main ingredients are eight basic elements: water, life, shield, cold, lightning, arcane, earth, fire and two hybrid elements: steam and ice. Each spell may contain up to five elements. Couple that with five different targets: self, area, force, sword and magick, and you have yourself a delightfully intuitive and complex system.

    Cast a spell with the fire element and the force target, and a jet of flame shoots out. Cast it as an area spell and fire explodes around you. Cast it on yourself and you will either dry yourself (if you were wet), defrost yourself (if you had been frozen), or catch on fire (and burn to death unless you cast water on yourself real soon). Some examples of spells are: Revive, Grease, Haste, Teleport, Charm, Thunderbolt, Rain, Blizzard, Meteor Shower, Congflagration, Summon Death, Summon Phoenix, Nullify, Raise Dead, Summon Elemental, Thunder Storm and many more. ...

    MMO Gaming Focus: Crimecraft

    Greetings everyone, my name is Damion Rayne. I'm new to the TG community but have fallen in love with it. So I decided to start out running and do some reviews and articles on an area of the gaming world that I enjoy the most, MMO Gaming. So this article is the first in the line of what I hope becomes a series of articles later down the road.

    This first article is a focus on a Free To Play game called "Crimecraft" which is a team based 3rd person shooter. So, lets get started and jump right in shall we?

    What is Crimecraft?

    Simply put by its' development team, "Crimecraft is a P.W.N.S" or otherwise known as a persistent world next-generation shooter. What does this mean to us? Well simply put this means that Crimecraft is a 3rd person action shooter with added bells and whistles that one would expect from a massive multi-player online game. Including skills, leveling, crafting and many other aspects which we will be going over later on in this article. ...

    So you like destroying things? Making loud booms with high explosives? Shooting a wide variety of weapons?

    Breach is the newest title from Atomic Games and was originally designed as a training simulator for the US government and then released as a title for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Of course, the first thing that comes to everyone's mind is that this is just another console port, but you couldnt be more wrong. Breach is a full fledged first person shooter that combines the best elements of contemporary titles such as Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Call of Duty and Medal of Honor and pushes beyond.

    The Basics:
    Breach isnt your typical FPS by any stretch of the imagination. Yes, you have guns, a knife and various incendiary devices, but the depth that Atomic has gone to is really stunning. Breach works on a level based system for unlocks, and XP is needed to level yourself up as you play. But unlike the FPS titles we have today, XP isnt awarded solely for killing or accomplishing objectives, it's also awarded for simply playing the game actively.

    For those of you who’ve not been initiated, World of Tanks is an upcoming free to play (F2P) MMO currently in beta. Game play centers around armored fighting vehicles ranging from the WWI era on past WWII. You’ll fight your way across a multitude of battlefields blasting enemy tanks, dodging fire from ambushing tank destroyers, always fearful of the ever present rain of death from artillery. Game play is quick and lethal, but with good tactics and a couple of platoon mates, no one will stand in your way.

    You’ll initially log into the game to find yourself in the hangar, as the proud owner of one of three starter tanks; the Russian MS-1, the German Leichttraktor, or the American T1 Cunningham. There are many options on the screen but as you currently have no money, and no experience, the only really option is to pick a tank and hit the big red “Battle” button. After a short loading time while the server looks for a round that matches your level and you’ll be deposited into a map surrounded by your team mates. You’ve got your standard stuff - a mini map, team list to either side, a diagram of your tank, and cross hairs. Controls are very easy, using “wasd” to move; forward and back, left and right. Targeting is handled by the mouse. You will quickly notice two different cross-hairs, one shows where you are pointing, and the other where the gun is pointing as it tries to track your movements. You’ve got two types of ammo you can use, AP for general all around fun, and HE rounds which are used for higher module damage. Your targeting reticule also has a lot of useful information showing your health and current reload time via bars on the right and left. There is also a green circle that shows your cone of fire that will increase or decrease based on your current speed and movements. ...

    In the mood for a grittier, more fiery Battlefield game? Try the latest Battlefield add-on: BFBC2 Vietnam !

    For those of you new to the series, Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam is the latest installment of the hugely successful Battlefield (BF) franchise developed by DICE. All Battlefield games are first person shooters with an emphasis on online, team-based multiplayer battles involving infantry and vehicles.

    Players get to choose to play one of several classes (e.g. assault, recon, engineer) and get to customize the kit (which rifle to carry, what attachment to bring). More recent BF games feature weapon unlocks and persistent player statistics.

    Built in VOIP facilitates communication between team players, making Battlefield a game that requires cooperation for success. Squad play (where each team is broken into squads) is a recurring theme in all BF games. Some BF titles feature commanders, which would talk to their squad leaders, which would in turn relay orders to their squad. Tactical Gamer encourages the use of a microphone for all Battlefield titles. Note that VOIP for BFBC2 (including Vietnam) is broken for the PC – Tactical Gamer uses Teamspeak to allow communication. ...
