Tentative Event: Come and be a SINNER!


  • Come and be a SINNER!

    Come join us for a Sins of a Solar Empire Open Event hosted by the Tactical Gamer Strategy Games Group, aka TG: SGG.

    For those who don't really remember what Sins of a Solar Empire is you can follow the reviews for Sins of a Solar Empire Thread linked at the end of this article for some great reviews by various online sources. Essentially Sins is a RTS of somewhat - at least in my opinion - epic proportions which can be a simple 1v1 or a long and sometimes arduous 5v5 that can last a.... long time.

    Don't have Sins yet ? I do have to ask why not...
    You can download a demo just about anywhere. However I know that if you Download and Install Impulse which does require you to setup an account. You can easily download the Sins of a Solar Empire Demo.

    Of course that is not the only way to get it as you may easily google Sins of a Solar Empire Demo.

    Ok, so you downloaded the demo and your interest is peaked.
    You could pick up an actual physical copy but it's probably alot easier to get a copy from an online retailer like Stardock.

    It would be greatly appreciated if you plan on participating in this event that you have the Entrenchment expansion. But we aren't going to hold it against you and we would rather have more people than not have anyone. So even if you don't have Entrenchment please join us if you are able.

    Event: Come and be a SINNER!
    When: Friday March 18, 2011 @ 8pm Central & or Saturday March 19,2011 2pm Central.
    Host: Tactical Gamer Strategy Games Group
    Meeting Place: Tactical Gamer Teamspeak server > Real Time Strategy Games
    Event Contacts: amu107.9 Also, look in the Strategy Games Section of the forums for any updates.

      All right, I'm stepping into Amu's place. I'll be acting as host unless for some reason people can't connect to me. In which case, we'll figure out someone else to be host.

      We'll still be gathering on Teamspeak under the "Sins of a Solar Empire" channel. If the channel isn't there, it just means you're a bit early and probably in a few minutes, someone will go and create the channel. :)

      So, come on out and be a sinner! Gather your friends, build your fleets, and crush all those who stand in your way as you storm through the stars to become the ultimate power in known space!

  • TG is going to Tanoa - Apex of ArmA 3 begins July 11
    Apex DLC is Coming To TG Servers

    Get ready for the ride to the pinnacle of ArmA 3. Bohemia Interactive is releasing their latest achievement on July 11th featuring a Pacific jungle island Tanoa, a plethora of new features and a rich and long awaited set of assets in the ArmA tradition. will be hosting this content upon release. We will be churning out missions immediately!

    Tanoa alone is impressive, with 5 airports, its single main island, four minor islands and a bunch of ďminiĒ islands itís set to expand the ArmA empire to include much more land/sea battle capabilities and add elements of small island south pacific tropical exotic-ness to the ArmA franchise.

    Covering over 100 square Kilometers (about one third of the original ArmA Altis map) it is a tropical island paradise. Set in an idyllic setting itís not militarized like Stratis, Altis or many other maps and this one is truly a clear slate for scenarios. With that said itís not without its history, exploited for its rich mining productivity the island has been industrialized and ravaged for what looks like decades. There is a new faction, "The Syndikat", a local criminal organization with deep roots on Tanoa. This initial primary faction is made up of armed thugs and ex-paramilitaries, and is involved in many illicit operations throughout the region. Armed with mostly Ďclassicí weaponry such as AKs, RPGs, and 9 mm pistols their knowledge of the island and local hiding spots will make them a formidable enemy when the DLC is released.

  • Exciting CitizenCon Reveals and How Trolls Helped Push the Community Over 1M Backers

    Some People Live Under Bridges

    There has long been a small but ongoing undercurrent of Star Citizen criticism in some corners of the internet, mostly consisting of (IMO, baseless) accusations of "vaporware", "scam", etc. Apparently, in at least one case (Derek Smart) they have gotten so bad recently that Chris Roberts felt the need to publicly reply. Prior to this, I had never even heard of Derek Smart, but it didn't take me much research to find out that the guy is basically a professional troll. Apparently, once upon a time he had developed a couple games, that many people panned as unfinished and pretty bad in general. So, unable to achieve success on his own, he has apparently turned to latching onto more successful projects in a sad attempt at keeping his own name relevant. And seeing as how I had never heard of him prior to this drama, I suppose successful troll is successful. Although I really can't get my head around why anyone would set out to make that sort of name for themselves.

  • Elite: Dangerous - Horizons

    Frontier Developments released Elite: Dangerous last year and is now getting ready to release a new season of updates entitled Horizons. Thatís right, I said season, not expansion. Frontier has been releasing new features and updates to the game on a periodic basis over a long window of time that they refer to as a "season". The base game released as a single season and we saw a few new features, ships, and other items added to the game.

    If you have been paying attention to the game, you might have seen that some of these updates included the ability to form wings with other players (Wings Update), the ability to pledge with and support a minor power (Powerplay Update), the upcoming area combat (CQC Update), and eventually the Ships update which will bring the current total number of ships up to 30; or 31 depending on if you have Horizons coming to you in some fashion. This will bring Season One (or up to patch 1.5) to an end. Donít worry if you did not buy Horizons, they will still patch and update the base game and you will still be able to play. You will just not get to enjoy some of the newer features that this new season will bring.

  • ArmA Insurgency New Life and New Blood on Altis
    "Pandora: The Insurgency" Unique version hosted at TG

    Keen on tactics and strong team based play? Stop by TacticalGamer.comís Insurgency server for ArmA 3 and join the team as we take on the insurgents on Altis. Itís a 24/7 job. No MODs and no requirements to get in on some amazing ArmA 3 action. Join us today!!

    Built on a persistent framework it calls troops to join in the fight to clear the island of Altis of a scourge of insurgents. These arenít your average insurgents; they possess skills and weaponry that keeps the best squads on their toes. Their flanking tactics and relentless aggression are legendary. Anti-armor capabilities that keep the armor in the rear and, squads need to take special note that ďnoiseĒ in a region with other enemy cells nearby may cause those cells to activate and respond to the threat. So small cells that seem ďeasyĒ to clear suddenly become beehives of insurgents attacking and flanking a small expeditionary force....

  • Project Reality Server is Back!
    As some of you saw today, the PR server is back online!

    We will be running the server on a part-time basis, most likely 3 days/nights a week, possibly 4. It is our opinion that this will work best in lieu of running the server 24/7 and having it sit empty most of the day. Additionally, the last time we tried to re-boot the server, we had big issues with getting people to help the seed the server. It is our hope that with a schedule that is known for the week, everyone will look forward to the days that server is up (much like we all looked forward to Thursday password nights) and the server will be full very quickly.

    So, what's the schedule? Great question! We don't know yet. The admin team will make a post later this week with specific dates and times, but the weekend is a pretty safe bet for right now.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions, please get a hold of the admin team in the Contact An Admin forum.

    Look forward to seeing everyone on the battlefield!
