  • Men of War Assault Squad Open Beta - Ongoing and free

    Men of War Assault Squad Open Beta - Ongoing and free


    Game Overview


    Men of War: Assault Squad is the new title in the "Men of War" series. Assault Squad takes place across the globe during the height of World War II and features a completely new cooperative skirmish game mode with access to five different nations (Russia, Germany, USA, Commonwealth and Japan) as well as increased realism and accessibility. The expansion pack will deliver fans and newcomers an intense new WW2 spectacle with almost limitless replayability.

    Like previous games in the series, Men of War: Assault Squad includes the unique “direct control” feature which enables players to maneuver units using the directional keys, rather than pointing and clicking. PC Generals can get behind the controls of a tank to smash through obstacles, crush soldiers under its tracks and fire armor-piercing shells at enemy emplacements, or take control of individual soldiers as they fight....

    Free Speech and Video Games


    Video games are more than just a product of the entertainment industry. They are artistic, political, and religious expressions. For anyone remotely familiar with the medium, this claim is obvious and needs no defense. Whether it is BioShock, the Sims, Farmville, or Castle Wolfenstein, all video games function not merely as an art form, but they are also vehicles for expression. Fans, artists, and scholars alike have used the medium of video games to create commentaries on many aspect of contemporary life.

  • EA/DICE Present: Medal of Honor

    EA/DICE Present: Medal of Honor




    Operating directly under the National Command Authority, a relatively unknown entity of handpicked warriors are called on when the mission must not fail. They are the Tier 1 Operators.

    Over 2 million Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines wear the uniform. Of those, approximately 50 thousand fall under the direct control of the Special Operations Command. The Tier 1 Operator functions on a plane of existence above and beyond even the most highly trained Special Operations Forces. Their exact numbers, while classified, hover in the low hundreds. They are living, breathing, precision instruments of war. They are experts in the application of violence.

    The new Medal of Honor is inspired by and has been developed with Tier 1 Operators from this elite community. Players will step into the boots of these warriors and apply their unique skill sets to a new enemy in the most unforgiving and hostile battlefield conditions of present day Afghanistan.

    There is a new enemy. There is a new war. There is a new warrior. He is Tier 1.

  • The Military Gaming Industry

    The Military Gaming Industry

    This video-article explores the relationship between the military-industrial complex and the gaming industry. Many scholars argue that military-style first person shooter games invariably promote the ideology of empire, further the agenda of American military interests, and transform gamers into supporters of the "war on terror."

    In the following video, Dr. Strangelove explores one such argument and suggests that gamers such as the members of the Tactical Gaming community are not mindless dupes of the ideologies of empire and American society.

  • Online Gaming and Addiction

    Online Gaming and Addiction



    This is video lecture by Dr. Strangelove, of the University of Ottawa, (a.k.a. [TG] E-Male) on pathological and non-pathological online gaming. I performed the monologue while simultaneously playing Bad Company 2. Thus the video lecture captures the ironic position of myself, addicted to the Internet and online gaming, analyzing the subject while engaged in the subject. How very pomo. ...

  • Not as Smart as We Think We Are

    Not as Smart as We Think We Are

    Marshall McLuhan, a Canadian media scholar, put media studies in the daily news and at the forefront of the social sciences in the last century when he drew a convincing connection between content, medium, brain, and society. McLuhan's insights were correct, although his theories about the nature of the connection were often fanciful and quickly disproven.

    Over sixty years after McLuhan's initial connection between mind and medium we are still trying to assess the nature of media's effects upon us. A team of researchers at the University of Rochester just published a study about the impact of gaming upon an aspect of decision making known as "probabilistic inference", and for the Tactical Gaming community, the news appears to be all good. ...

  • Differences between Adolescent and Adult Gamers

    Differences between Adolescent and Adult Gamers

    This article is originally by |TG|E-Male - A.K.A. Dr. Strangelove. Reposted to fix visibility issues.

    "OMG ur so gay."

    The differences between adolescent and adult gamers is in many ways clear to the members of Tactical Gamer (TG). Anyone who spends more than a few moments on a 'pubbie' server -- a largely unmoderated public online game environment -- can see the difference in the text-based game chat. Comments tend towards the homophobic, racist, and misogynistic and often reflect childhood anxieties over parentage, sexuality, gender, and difference (for a child, there are few things more fearful than being seen as different)....
