    Hey Guys, Girls, and whatever the heck this is:



    (I mean, who would use this as an avatar?)

    It's time for another Toggle Sticks Gaming Monthly Update!

    Just a reminder, we have our TSGaming Halo Reach LAN Days Event this weekend @ Yeah Buddy' Other's Pizza, so bring a console and jack in for some TSG vs TSG Scrims as well as some good ol' fashion mayham! We provide HDTVs and LAN equipment, you provide consoles, games and Gamers!

    The TSG Otakon or Bust trip at the end of the month is coming up and we have at least three car fulls of gamers to join us in this short road trip to Baltimore. Still looking to go with? Just message us via our Facebook Page and we'll see who sits on the roof and who's going in the trunk!

    Also, PS3 Gamers Wanted! Know anyone who owns a PS3 and plays online? We want them! We're looking for PS3 gamers to help expand our PS3 side of our gaming community. Right now, it's 90% dominated by Xbox 360 gamers and I want to balance it out to the PS3 side. Once we've gotten more players, we can start up Community Nights for PSN. For the most part, I need to know if you exist on PSN! Add RS_Draken to your friends list on PSN so we know if you even have a PS3 to play on. If you don't got one, go buy one! Really, it's one of the easiest to use Bluray players on market that does just about everything. And, I've only been through two of them... unlike Xbox 360.

    Have you been watching the streams lately? That's right, we've been working out! Several of the night gamers of our community have been thrashing people over XBL at night for the past week just to practice for this weekend!

Prizes for the tournament will be $30 in Gamestop Gift Cards, TSG T-Shirts and possibly, a little something special from Yeah Buddy' Other's Pizza.

    TSGaming Trip - Otakon or Bust! - Friday, July 27th to Sunday, July 29th 2012 - Baltimore, MD

    Just got my ticket, and this time (hopefully) we'll be all ready to party it up at Otakon! We've got members both staying for the long haul and going for the day, so the chance is much higher for any of us to... wipeout the competition at the gaming areas. >Smile Well, our goal is.. um... (looks at script) "Safe and sportsman like condu...." Screw this! Our goal is to have Fun and WIN! Nothing but! If you see something that catches your eye, GO FOR IT. And take Pics afterwards. I need to smack someone about certain pics anyway...

    Speaking of smacking someone, If any TSG Member or anyone else sees me there (Not directly with me) and smacks me in the back or grabs my attention in any way, shape, or form, I'll give you a FREE TSG T-Shirt for coming! Wear them proud! I'll have a bunch on me, so don't hesitate to make me notice you. I am not at fault if you do something that gets you kicked out for being too noticeable.

    All TSG Members will most likely meet up near the gaming areas, so (those with smartphones) keep tabs on our Facebook Page to find us. Better to enter a tournament beside someone you at least somewhat know than randoms. I mean, who wants to team up with ransoms online, let alone in a competition?

    TSGaming Community Night - Soul Calibur V - Xbox 360 (Xbox Live) - Saturday, August 4th, 2012 - 7:00pm Eastern

    No more dominating players, no more rage quitting. I'm at the controller now! Our Community Nights return in August with Soul Calibur V. I'm making a bunch of customs specifically for this and I'll be practicing till the 4th. All you need to do is add Crynocent Nu to your XBL Friends List and be online on SoulCalV at 7pm Eastern Time! We'll send you an invite and hack and slash the night away. And of course, it'll be streamed.

    What's my practice regiment? Go into training mode, Set AI to insanely hard, and keep fighting until I can ring the AI out 10x in a row without taking a hit in return. That's how champions are formed. Nothin but Win!

    If anyone has suggestions for specific custom characters I should make (Anime, other gaming etc), don't hesitate to make a post on the Facebook Event Page of what you want to see!

    Notables:

    Jecht - Final Fantasy X
    Negi Springfield - Mahou Sensei Negima

    Archer aka Shirō Emiya - Fate/Stay Night

    Sephiroth (with an actual wing) - Final Fantasy VII

    TSGaming & The Planeswalkers of Millersville Joint Event - MTG Return to Ravnica 3v1 Archenemy Standard Tournament - Sunday, October 7th, 2012

    - This event is currently being planned out -

    While we were looking for suitable locations for our experimental Archenemy Tournament, our Webmaster, Sarah "Hazel" Helms mentioned that her university at Millersville has a MTG club that grew drastically since she first learned how to play last year. It gave me an idea for a joint event with them on their campus with our TSG Explosive type of High End events!

    Long story short:
    Archenemy Standard Tournament with the prizes of up to 5 Full Booster Boxes of Return to Ravnica! That's $500 in prizes that we are giving out! As stated in previous posts and such, Matches will be 3vs1 Archenemy Style with TSG Custom Scheme Decks. Players may enter as either Alone and become Archenemies or as Teams of Three Heros. At 32 entries (32 teams/Archenemies), First place will receive 3 Unopened Booster Boxes of Return to Ravnica and Second Place will receive 1 Booster Box.

    We are still in the planning stages of this, so be sure to watch our Facebook page for more detail!

    Afterward

    Shorter update today. With E3 over and everyone else outside, the next major gaming event would be the Tokyo Game Show in Japan, aside from anything MLG... On a side note, I learned how to put photos in the emails, so possibly, we may have custom letterheads in the future!

    Until Next Time ~
