  • GamePlan: Real-Time Strategy Planning For FPS, RTS and MMO Gamers

    GamePlan: Real-Time Strategy Planning For FPS, RTS and MMO Gamers

    Tactical Gamer has always taken pride in our organization, our tactics and our strategy. In the past, this has required lengthy planning sessions that took place over many days or weeks because we didn't have any tools that would allow us to collaborate visually on strategy in real time. Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm here to tell you that those days are over thanks to a groundbreaking new mobile application: GamePlan.

    GamePlan is a mobile application that works with all Android and iOS devices, both mobile phone and tablet sized. You simply download and install the application, download your maps, link up with your fellow tacticians and away you go. It is cross-platform compatable, so you dont have to worry about whether or not the guys you're planning with are apple or android loyal....

  • Red Orchestra 2: Free Weekend on Steam and GotY Edition

    Red Orchestra 2: Free Weekend on Steam and GotY Edition

    Greetings fellow Tactical Gamers, I bring to you news from Stalingrad!

    The team at Tripwire Interactive (TWI) have been busy squashing bugs, tweaking the gameplay and UI, and developing new content since the less-than-stellar launch of RO2, back in the fall of 2011. They've even gone back to their MOD team roots and have a long running open beta, allowing owners of the game to test everything that was being tweaked. From ballistics and client side hit detection, to Tank AI and the new, free map: Mamayev Kurgan. Which, by the way, features both close quarters combat and long range engagements.

    Now, the work is done and the testing is complete. On May 22nd [TW]Wilsonam announced that all current owners of RO2 will be getting a free content pack: The RO2 GotY Edition. Since the TWI team has worked so hard on making things "right" with RO2 and it's dedicated fans, I won't steal their thunder by copy/pasting their announcement (which can be found here, instead, I give you the RO2 GOTY Free Content Update Dev Diary video, where the members of Tripwire Interactive tell us about the changes that have been made....

  • DayZ Introduction

    DayZ Introduction

    Zombies versus Survivors, itís all the rage right now. But what happens when you take the zombie/survivor idea and cross it with the capability of a top notch first person shooter engine like ArmA 2? You end up with something that smacks of Left 4 Dead, but set in some obscure place like Kazakhstan. You get something that has cool guns like Killing Floor, except thereís nowhere to buy ammunition. You end up with the DayZ mod.

    DayZ is set in a region of Chernarus, a primarily Russian speaking area. That means all the maps, street signs and directions are in Russian. Donít worry, itís not that big of a deal. The idea is that the general population has been infected and become zombies (or zeds as some refer to them). You are one of the lucky survivors, and you start out at a random starting point with a handgun with some ammunition, a backpack, a water canteen, one or two items of food and some very basic medical supplies. What you do NOT have is a compass, a watch, a map, a flashlight, any other high end goodies such as night vision goggles or a GPS. That doesnít mean they arenít out there, you just have to find themÖ without being eaten....

  • Firepower 2 - Project Reality at TG

    Firepower 2 - Project Reality at TG

    Here at TG we love firepower and teamplay. This video is for everyone who plays here, you guys are awesome! - |TGXV| Gore

    Tactical Gamer was founded with a few very simple principles:

    1) Create an environment conducive for mature gamers to enjoy the games they play without the everyday interference from the less-than-mature gamers.

    2) Create an environment where there was mutual respect for your fellow gamers and where all members would be working together to advance the enjoyment of their hobby.

    3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine, regardless of the level of advantage, if any, it gives over the opposing team....

    Swedge interviews MasterCaution (Callous Disregard) PR:Arma2

    "TacticalGamer: it's a community. It's not a clan. It's not exclusive in any way. But there's a certain ethos to it. It's that we want to have a mature, fun game. So a lot of the problems you see in console gaming, or just the behaviour issues, just don't exist in TG ... This community is fantastic."

    The TacticalGamer ProjectReality:Arma 2 v.015 Beta server currently enjoys the 2nd highest Arma 2 game server rank on the planet with recent epic single rounds involving as many as 100 players.

    Considered by many to be the most realistic military simulator in the world, and described as "the Thinking Man's game", Arma 2 under the Project Reality mod has gone from strength to strength. Under the tutelage of the cigar-toting, whiskey-and-fire-breathing Wicks and the rest of the TG admin team (including Paintscratcher, Unk, Socomseal, Axis_Sniper, Jeepo etc), the server has achieved renewed popularity, generating a landslide of after-action-reports, YouTube videos, forum posts, and screenshots....

  • Rayne's Eye on Eve Online: The Future is Bright.

    Rayne's Eye on Eve Online: The Future is Bright.


    The title of this article should say it all ladies and gentlemen, the Future of Eve Online is a Bright one. With the release of Eve's latest expansion named "Crucible" CCP games has returned to the basics and the most important section of Eve Online, the Space Game. Now this doesn't mean we wont see plenty of juicy information on Dust 514, or continued iteration on Incarna elements, but as it stands for now CCP has focused on re-building the old and making it new and better. Crucible has brought a wide range of updates, quality of life improvements and has seen plenty of iteration. In this article I'll attempt to cover as much of Crucible as I can, focusing on Key Points while looking to the future of Eve Online and stopping at an interview with Eve Online's Creative Director, Tofi Frans Olafsson. So sit back and enjoy the ride, because if you're like me and you love the unique Sci Fi world of Eve..then you'll love what the future holds. Let's get started....
