    November 2012 Update

    Post  Crynocent on Fri Nov 25, 2011 1:21 am

    Hi Everybody!
    (Hi Dr Nick)...

    ...I mean "Yo!" Joe "Crynocent" here with the November's TSGaming Update! It's here and it's... well... hungry for some turkey... And by "turkey", I mean New Holiday Gaming sessions! ...And by New Holiday Gaming Sessions, I mean not going out to go Xmas shopping till later! Seriously, stay home and play games, it's far safer than trying to brave the traffic and aggressive shoppers at the mall.

    Head to and for the latest events and updates from our group. Local and otherwise.

    Anyway, A few events completed, a few events modified, and a few events added. A little bit of each, so let's get started!

    Event Wrap-Up

    MW3 Prerelease Tournament
    I would like to thank everyone who participated in the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Prerelease Tournament with Gamestop at the Capital City Mall. I would also like to congratulate Mike Weinacht and Josh Trump for making it to the Final Match and would like to give a big congrats to Grand Champions, Bryan Barninger and Justin Bonberger for their stunning performance in the tournament.

    Although I wasn't able to be at the event myself, several of our staff members and Gamestop's employees gave us enough support to pull this off. Our Modern Warfare 3 Prerelease Tournament went just about flawlessly. Attendees reached 200+ people with 16 players entering our tournament to be the First in the World to frag each other in MW3. As soon as I get the pics back from the event, They'll be posted right to Facebook and our site for all to see.

    TSG Top #1 - Magic the Gathering - Two-Headed Giant Legacy Tournament
    The Two-Headed Giant Tournament ran as smooth as ever with 4 teams of two entering for a Swiss style event. I would like to thank Team Molten Steel members, DJ Lingam and Austin Rowley for their second place victory and Champion Team Third Dimension, with Anthony Wilson and Lindsay Burley for coming in First Place. The winning team decided to run a Boosters Draft Tournament afterwards with the prize with 8 players entering. Both Togra, aka Jordan Belt, and I entered the follow up event and came away with some nice swag.

    Event Update

    TSG Community Weekend - CoD: Modern Warfare 3 - Saturday November 26 and Sunday November 27th - Online
    Why go shopping in stores when you could be fragging everything in sight?! Leave that sort of work to everyone else! Two days of MW3 on Black Friday Weekend! Playlists will be determined by how many players we have at the time.

    Saturday the 26th - PS3
    8:00 PM eastern till Whenever

    Sunday the 27th - 360

    Remember! It's not the size of the gun that you're holding that matters. It's how many rounds you can put into them before they hit the ground!

    Community Update

    Forza Motorsport 4 - Canis Lupo's 6 Week Review
    The last chapter of Canis Lupo's intensive review is up, evoking a multitude of emotions. From love, to ecstasy, to envy, to awe, and finally to "Flailing around in front of a camera as a friend looking onward from behind you and a glimmer of a tear in his eye".

    And it's all touchy feely... but in a "Can't Touch This" kinda way!

    If you missed the other weekly reviews of Forza's unique features, check out our Reviews page for more!

    And then you realize.... "I have done it... This is it... This is Everything.... It's absolute power... Unlimited POWER!!!!! Now Die Heros!!!!" - Talon Albatross's Review of Demon Souls
    A full top down review of one of the most frustrating and evil games ever created in the history of man. Talon Albatross lays it all flay out for you. Everything you are, and everything you will be is tested. From your consciousness to your tenacity. From your ego to your convictions.

    To tell you the truth, it's the game for Everyone. Whether you're Masochistic or Sadistic!

    Ah.. it feels good to be back... It kinda get you..... Right in here (points to chest) - Team Stomp - Halo Reach 2v5 Victory - Talon Albatross and Crynocent
    As soon as I get Fileshare to work again in Halo Reach... I'll be posting this vid up... but in the meantime... here's the game stats:!
    To make a long story short.... 45 to 35 Reflection.

    "Why are we stopping?" "Why do you think? End of the line..." (Really?!)

    Kinda leaves your jaw swinging too...

    Oh C4... Why do you work so well? In any game?

    "Peta, we know you'a care... And so do we."
    Nintendo's response to PETA

    I played God of War too... it really is hard....

    "The Blades of Chaos are thristry. I could not turn that down..."


    Hope everyone's fattened up by now. If you're not... go find some leftovers.. You need a bit more protection from the Black Friday Shoppers.. Shopping carts hurt, so a little extra padding is handy. And what better way to finish them off, with some gaming!

    Got anything to say? Review not to your liking? My ranting not angry or irritating enough? Hit up our Facebook page and Site and show us how it's done!

    Just because something cannot be proven scientifically,
    You must not laugh in the face of miracles;
    You must not deny your eyes the true beauty of this world."
