    Post  Crynocent on Sun Oct 23, 2011 4:02 am

    Hey Everybody!

    Crynocent here... a bit ticked off, but I'm all... (checks arms and legs) ...Still together. Here's this month's TSG Update for October 2011.

    Highlights this month are Forza Motorsport 3 Weekly Review by Canis Lupo, MTG Two-Headed Giant Tournament at Capital City Gaming, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Prerelease Tournament with Gamestop, and a bunch of new vids about upcoming games. Oh... and me Raging at Ace Combat Assault Horizon for breaking what was once a playable series...

    Don't forget to check TSG's Site: and regularly updated Facebook page: for Videos, Reviews, Commentaries, and Future Events!


    Event Update

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Prerelease Tournament - November 7th, 2011 @ 9:00pm - Sponsored by Gamestop @ Capital City Mall (Near Hot Topic)

    Everything's a go with our first late night tournament with Gamestop and nothing is stopping us from being there! Gamestop reduced the size of team from 4 down to 2 with teams formed at the event itself. We will be setting up up to 10 HDTVs, consoles and copies of MW3 with the help of Sears and Gamestop for the event. The folks at Gamestop will even be providing extra giveaways and prizes for people who show up for the midnight release, and we might throw in a little something something for the mix.

    Still Free to enter and an easy pick-up-and-play area for non-combatants if you just want to try it without someone hunting you down for picking up a controller. Be sure to arrive early to sign up and confirm your preorder of MW3. Sponsored by Gamestop!

    TSG Top #1 - Magic the Gathering Two-Headed Giant Legacy Tournament @ Capital City Gaming in the Harrisburg Mall - November 19th, 2011 @ 2:00pm

    Our next Top #1 event next month is a full blown tournament for MTG sponsored entirely by us and held within Capital City Gaming. A Two-Headed Giant Legacy Tournament with prizes of Booster Boxes up for grabs and assorted items as giveaways including t-shirts, booster packs, and food. That means, Teams of 2 will compete in Double Elimination, Best 2 out of 3, commutative life matches for the Top MTG Team of Toggle Sticks Gaming! Form teams now or later and all are available to join! No restrictions on participants, even Capital City Gaming Employees and TSG Staff Members!

    The Judge for the tournament will be myself to keep it open to all. Deck Restrictions are Legacy Restricted to keep it as fair as possible. So no "Black Lotus, turn 2 exile target player's deck" wins. Time limit for each round will be set to 60 minutes for 3 games with breaks in between matches. Due to time constraints, we will be limited infinite loops to "10 loops per turn per combo" to keep the matches going. Prizes for 3rd and back will be determined by the number of participants in the tournament, but are almost guaranteed. Anyone without a partner can be assigned one before the tournament starts.

    Also, did I mention that they were Innistrad Booster Boxes? $10 per person with prizes and giveaways during the event. You'll easily get your money's worth of goodies at some point at the event! As MTG will be our primary this Top #1 event, we will not be setting up consoles for games. POSSIBLY, though... we may have TVs set up for an Anime Session with Capital City Gaming. Stay tuned to our Facebook Page ( for more info.

    Community Update

    "The Pack Runs Fast" - Canis Lupo's Multi-week Review of Forza Motorsport 4 (and how it is better than GT5?)

    Each Week, starting last week, for the next 5-6 weeks, Core Member Ryan "Canis Lupo" Worley will be posting his review of Forza 4's multitude of features. This time around, Turn 10 turned up the notch with it's features for car and environment detail, customization, auction house and storefront, new racing modes, and how they treat the community as individuals and as a whole.

    Week 1 was the Community Spotlight Section:

    Week 2 is Forza's Marketplace and Free Play Section:

    Check TSG's Facebook Page each weekend for the latest update on Forza 4's Features!

    Don't forget, Canis Lupo was actually a diehard a GT Player...

    "...And that's why I play inverted... (sigh) Unfortunately this game is telling me otherwise..." - Crynocent's Ace Combat Assault Horizon Experience...

    Although lesser know, most of the Staff Members know me as a Flyboy Aviation Junky who knows a thing or two about aircraft... Also the fact that I hold multiple champion titles on multiple leagues for Ace Combat 6 (360) and an almost peerless record of Air to Air Combat, even against US Military Pilots... Yet this latest installment of Ace Combat makes me feel a little cringing every time I pick up the controller...

    If you guys haven't been paying attention to the Facebook Page as of late, Roosterteeth, the guys who created the machinima Red vs Blue, posted one of my vids from Halo 3 as a Gamefail last week, instantly gaining 50,000+ views in under a week's time.

    Gaming Update

    Sony's PSVita comes out in Feb!
    Specifically February 22nd, 2012 with Launch titles of UMvC3 and Uncharted as their catch points to compete against Nintendo's 3DS's right Analog Stick thingy. Also... it may be PS Store Only, but no confirmation as of yet for the software of the system, as it lacks a UMD drive and has a new type of Flash Memory (still no SD Card slot). So which will win? I like whatever has a good FF game (looks away...) remake, so which ever has one first has a "this handheld only" thing, gets my vote. I'm hoping for a 7th incarnation of FF4...

    "When you see it, you'll be shitting bricks..." - NamcoBandai adds Ezio from Assassin's Creed to the roster for SoulCalibur V
    Wristblades included.

    "Alright, it's been 2 weeks, all the humans are dead, and you're all I have left... Make me proud!" - Portal 2 gets an In-game editor in 2012
    "I promise not to bake you this time!"

    "But we haven't been outside in like 10 years. We're afraid the kids will make fun of our trousers for not being in style" - Diablo III Black Soul Stone Trailer
    "And we're two heads on one body. That has never, ever been hip!"

    Ever have that creepy, crawly feeling... Yeah... that one... - Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm New Units Trailer
    Feels good, eh?

    Pixar can still suck it! - Final Fantasy XIII-2 Trailer
    It feels like I don't need to play the game after watching this...


    That's Finale for this month's update! Catch us on Facebook for an almost daily update by our community members about games, anime, electronics and whatever else is good in the world! Cheese included. Not mine though.. you can't have it.. IT"S MINE!!

    I leave you with this in the meantime!
    If you're dad was like this, you'd love him forever...

    Until next time, See ya online!
