    August 2012 Update

    Post  Crynocent on Sun Aug 26, 2012 5:10 am

    Hey Guys, Girls, and Sentient Lifeforms posing as Humans!
    We're a little late this month, The update was supposed to go out about 10 days ago and one thing led to another with my job. but it's All Berries! We've been around for 4 years and we are not going anywhere where you can't reach us! That's the great thing about Gaming with people you know. You can reach out and touch someone, hard if you have to! ...Not this hard, mind you:

    Our last few events were quite exhilarating for everyone who participated, paving the way for our next few events over the Fall and Winter Seasons! Check out our Facebook page, page and our forums for the most up to date info of Online Events, Trips, and Local Tournaments!

    Let's start off with a recap of those last few events, shall we?

    TSG Event Recap

    TSGaming LAN Days @ Yeah Buddy' Other's Pizza - Halo Reach
    The LAN Days Event went through without a hitch. I would like to thank everyone for coming to our event as well as Yeah Buddy' Other's Pizza in New Cumberland. If you missed joining us, you missed out! We had free food and prizes, not to mention a great time with Halo Reach and a little MTG on the side! Our Halo Reach FFA tournament came down to the wire with a Three Way Tie with TSG Members Ryan "Canis Lupo 07" Worley, Tyler "CagesRevenge" Lehr, and myself going into the finals. With the last Gametype and Map of Headhunter Pro on Pinnacle taxing everyone's skills to their limit, eventually Canis Lupo knocked me off the standings. But ultimately Cage with a final display of marksmanship took First Place, ending with Cage in first, Canis in second, Crynocent (myself) in third, Travis "Antifreak" in forth, and Jordan "Hawkeye" in fifth.

    TSGaming's Otakon or Bust - Trip to Otakon!
    With our first planned trip to Otakon, none of us actually minded pretending to be astute in Japanese culture for the weekend. Adam "Whitedragon" Crean and I arrived on Saturday tearing up the Gaming Areas like we planned from the get-go! Several people challenged us in Halo Reach, but with both of us on the same side, supporting and coordinating with each other, only 2 teams managed to beat us out of 12. To those that managed to edge us out, we gave out free TSG T-shirts.
    Half way through the day, I had a chance to meet up with Andrew "IMakeUFubar" Diebert for a few rounds in the Vendor's area, picking up a few trinkets here and there. Also through a chance meeting, Adam and I ran into Geo Hyman, winner of our Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Release Tournament outside the venue which led to us chatting about everything we saw that day.

    Although we ended up leaving Baltimore worn out with Adam half naked and me covered in blood, it was well worth the experience to Plan Next Year as well!

    If you recognize any characters or people, feel free to point them out.

    TSGaming Community Night - SoulCalibur V
    Swords and whips clashing. The sound of metal on metal. As our community night went on, each battle keep getting more and more intense. The night started off slow with a few Ranking matches until the members showed up. First was Jeff "Talon Albatross" Montes and eventually Ryan "Canis Lupo" along with a few stragglers though the night. A quick display of new custom characters led to a few new latent abilities among all of our members, myself included. The most epic battle ended up being my newly created Liliana Vess custom (Ivy) against one of the randoms (Viola) heading right down to the last little slivers of health in round 9. With each strike, we became more precise, yielding even stronger opponents when we setup for rematches. Everyone who participated pretty much agreed this is how a Community Night should be!

    "Those who pursue the truth must not be arrogant.
    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."
