  • Xfire bought by MTV Networks/Viacom

    As pointed out by Perry in the discussion in the Newly formed MTV Hip Hop Gaming League thread and reported in this morning's Wall Street Journal, Xfire has been bought by MTV Networks for a sum of $102 Million US Dollars. Share your thoughts on this purchase, as Xfire may soon turn out to be to Viacom what is to Fox (A social networking procrastination tool flooded with intrusive and often inappropriate advertisements)
    You were once like the newbie who needed a hand from above and TacticalGamer gave you it.

    You owe the newbie who comes after you that same outstretched hand from above on your honor as a Tactical Gamer.

    Tactics at TG come from trust and friendship, not meticulous detail and rigid discipline.

    Everyone should be assumed mature until proven otherwise.

    We are no clan.
    We are not a single game.
    We are mature, intelligent, and cooperative individuals.
    We are TacticalGamer, a community above and beyond its name.
