    January 2012 Update

    Post  Crynocent on Sat Jan 14, 2012 7:14 am

    Hey Guys and Girls,

    Crynocent here. And you know.. I don't mind the holidays.. but when they drag on and on... and on... it leaves me too busy to get some of my own gaming done. Whether it be relatives, or parties, or parties at relatives.. Or all those times you're online but not many others are. At one point, we all need to sit down and say, "Hey, stay at your place and I'll see you online so we'll actually get something accomplished for a change!"

    And so, that's why we have Community Nights. All those times that we aren't really on at the same time, are thrown out the window for that very purpose of gaming as a group. Along those lines we have a Today's Gears of War 3 Community Night, a change in community night next month, and added nights till the end of April. Even a possible joint night... something big or whatnot.

    Anyways, Let's get stated with the update!

    Event Update

    Gears of War 3 Community Night - Saturday, January 14th, 2012 @8:00pm Eastern Time
    As stated above, Gears Night is tonight with all the chainsaw goodness you've grown to love. Be online at 8:00pm US Eastern Time with my XBL gamertag added to your friends list and we'll be sawing some bones till morning!

    Next Weekend, The Top #1 returns with our first tournament of 2012. Modern Warfare 3 FFA Tournament with prizes for the top 3 spots. $5 entry fee and each competitor is on separate consoles and HDTVs creating the most even playing field.

Dark Ascension is coming soon....

    Community Night Changed! - Halo Reach Community Night - Saturday, February 12th, 2012 @8:00pm Eastern Time
    Due to the numbers of players with MW3 being abnormally low for a game that has the fastest sell point of any form of entertainment media to date, February's Community Night will be changed to Halo Reach.

    And so, Back by popular demand, Halo Reach Community Night, this time with the new maps if you've got them! Add Nagi Natsukaze to your Xbox Live Friends List and be online at 8:00pm US Eastern Time to join in on the grunty goodness!

    Dominating a Big Team Battle just because everyone on the team is communicating isn't against the law.... although our opponents may wish it was.

    TSG Community Night - League of Legends (PC) - Sometime after the convention, More info at a later date
    After 20+ people bugging me about getting back into League of Legends.... well.. here I am.. in a complete full circle of where I was about a year ago.... Makes me wonder what I was doing in the meantime.... Oh, right! New desktop and larger community. More info will be released at a later time, but it will be in April, after the convention.

    Too Many Games Convention - Unknown - June 15th - 17th, 2012
    It's still an unknown for us this year, due to our new equipment and stricter regulations regarding our staff members. I'll be heading down with a few members to attend if we don't get a tournament going, but as of right now, events are a no go with them.

    BUT, that just means that we'll be dominating the scene with our pwnage. When it's us against them (them being any other player) we don't hold back.. not in the least bit..

    Community Update

    It's alive!, IT'S LIVE - TSGaming's Live Stream is now up!
    Finally got the audio program for streaming, and now we have a live stream of (as of right now) PC Games. Next month, Hauppage and console games. Evan "Path" Parker also is in on it with his PC. Check the stream at Got a suggestion for a game? Just message us via Facebook or on the Twitch.TV Chat and we'll find it, and play it!

    And that tube goes into that filter... And there, she's running like a beaut! - Canis Lupo's Forza Motorsport 4 Tuning Guide is Up!
    On New Years, Ryan "Canis Lupo" Worley gave a couple members his custom Tuning Guide for Forza 4 and I bugged him enough to get it posted online. The guide itself takes you though several areas of interest within every car and fixes and teaches you about each setting. The calculator (Excel powered) is excellent to get any car to it's base stats, then the guide itself will take you through piece by piece, tweek by tweek, on how to tune the car to your specific driving style. It's so player sensitive, that Canis, himself couldn't drive a car I tuned to my preferences. Check it out yourself!
