One Universe One War


  • One Universe One War

    What is Dust 514 you might ask? For those of you that have not seen my earlier articles or been keeping up with forum posts, Dust 514 is a Free to Play MMOFPS that is launching on the Playstation 3 exclusively at the end of the year. Dust 514 is set in the Eve Online Universe and the tag line "One Universe One War" really holds true. Let's just jump right on in shall we? Below is the Dust 514 Keynote from this years Fanfest in Iceland. The keynote is over 30 minuets long, but I promise you there's a lot of really really cool stuff to see.

    There are tons and tons of points to take away from the Keynote, and other videos and pieces of information on the web now about Dust 514 and it's link to Eve Online and all it's features. So let's go over a few shall we?

    Same Skill System as Eve Online with a Twist
    Dust 514 will have the same "passive" skill training system that Eve Online players are used to, with a small twist. Active gameplay awards skill points to be spent on learning new skills with in Dust 514. This means that as a Dust Marine you'll be able to train new weapons, vehicles, armor and the like with out even playing, but train faster when you do play. Dust 514 launches with 7 years of total skill training time to get all skills at launch to level 5. Skills will affect stats on weapons, vehicles, and more.

    PvE and E-sports Support
    Dust will offer your standard "survive the zombie horde" style non-pvp play, but with an Eve Online flare. Players will engage "Rogue Drones" or rogue AI that are bent on universal destruction and have been a sever thorn in the side of Eve Pilots since 2003. Dust will also offer full blow, live, E-Sports support in the style of "Gladiator Arena" combat. Eve Online players as well as Dust Players will be able to watch these matches in real time, and bet in-game currency and items on the matches.

    What's the point?
    The point is simply this, Dust 514 and Eve Online are now truly entering an Area where games are really showing what a single, large, persistent world can offer. Dust Marines will be fighting for territory on planets that Eve Online players will want, and for resources they'll need. Dust marines will be able to accept contracts given by Eve Online Players, and it's not small leap of logic, to think the "best of the best" will be worth a rather hefty cost to get the job done.


    That right there ladies and gentlemen is the current model for a "Gallente HAV" or Heavy Attack Vehicle. Vehicles will play a huge part in Dust gameplay, as just like in eve online, these vehicles can be modified and have slots that allow you to change the weapons, armor, shields, speed and more. No two tanks will be the same. Also, vehicles are "Physical" assets in that, when you deploy one in the battlefield? It's brought to you by a RDV or "Rapid Deployment Vehicle." Meaning that battle assets lost on the battlefield, cost money to replace. This is huge for this type of warfare.


    Welcome to a shooter that lets you pick weapons based on race, and flavor. Want a laser rifle or a blaster rifle? You get to pick and then you get to modify it to fit YOUR style of gameplay and the skill system lets you choose a Role and specialty and become good at that.

    Map Size
    So, map size..big deal right? Right. The map shown in the demon was 5km wide..the largest maps will be close to 50km wide. Just figured I'd put that out there.

    Become the Soldier you want to be.

    The Team Game
    When you enter a match, your commander will be sitting in the "MCC" or Mobile Command Center, pictured below. Think of it like a Titan from BF2142, your Commander will control it, be in it, and he or she will be the one to "Commit" assets to the field. Loosing your MCC looses the match. There is a chain of command, there is build in VoIP, there is a commander and a full 3d real time top down map view. There are squad leaders, and assets deployed on the field are assets that take money to buy and are lost when they are destroyed and take money to replace. Working as a real, team, is going to be more important than you know.


    Is this a game for us? Is this a game for TG despite being on the PS3? Oh you bet I believe it is. We can truly shine here, with our skills, and our teamwork, we can shine and show the Eve Universe TG is a force to be reckoned with. I hope to see many a TG'er in Dust 514 when it launches. So that's it for now ladies and gentle men, stay tuned for updates as more information about this ground break MMOFPS come. So, thanks for reading, watching, and viewing and I'll bring you mroe as it comes out.

  • 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 “mini” islands it’s 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 it’s not militarized like Stratis, Altis or many other maps and this one is truly a clear slate for scenarios. With that said it’s 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 ‘classic’ 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. That’s 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. Don’t 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’s Insurgency server for ArmA 3 and join the team as we take on the insurgents on Altis. It’s 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 aren’t 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 “noise” in a region with other enemy cells nearby may cause those cells to activate and respond to the threat. So small cells that seem “easy” 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!
