New Indiana Jones game created by Bethesda, MachineGames, and LucasFilm Games

On  January 12th, Bethesda dropped a very exciting teaser on Twitter.
Details of "a new Indiana Jones game with an original story" have been revealed.
As of yet, no dates for release or future teasers, but it's safe to say that this is going to be huge.
 
MachineGames, known for their work on the Wolfenstein Franchise, is the studio that is owned by Bethesda Softworks, and will be “produced by Todd Howard, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games.”
 
   
There will definitely be more to follow once the community gets more information, but until then we will be anxiously waiting for the first game being branded under Lucasfilm Games.

Open World Star Wars?

A Long Time Ago, in a Swedish Development Companies Headquarters...
 
Now, I cannot say for all of our community here, but I have always had a love for Sci-Fi games, films, books, and the entire genre. I have been begging for a fully open-world Star Wars game ever since I’ve played 'Knights of the Old Republic' and the great gods of gaming up there must have been listening because it has been delivered to us at long last.  Now, some of you may be aware that Lucasfilm has now rebranded their gaming division, which was LucasArts, into a new division called Lucasfilms Games, their job is to bring reality to these desires. For those who played EA's Battlefront 2 game, you will all be recalling the pain and suffering that comes with EA's payment wall for most of the content. Almost game-breaking in what was locked behind the wall at release.
 

 
This pain can be set to rest thanks to the new Star Wars game being developed by Ubisoft in a new contract between Disney and the developers of an old favorite of mine "The Division". Now, although Disney has repeatedly preached the success of their partnership with EA and "promises" a continued partnership with them in the future regarding future titles, I am severely looking forwards to see what Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment Team will do with the Star Wars Universe. EA has had exclusive right with LucasArts for a long time but with the rebranding to Lucasfilm Games, those contracts have been freed up for the Disney owned franchise to branch out and explore what new developers and fresh blood can do for their property. How EA and Ubisoft will work in the future with Lucasfilm Games is unsure as co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft called the following announcement "the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games.". 
  
Now our actual information at this point is sorely limited and seems to be a case of reading between the lines of what we can expect. No information on consoles, backwards compatibility, expected release dates or anything like that is available so this is more of a naughty tease to the future. Much of the original statement is hinting at Ubisoft's Massive entertainments development team having an idea of where they want to take the game and how they want to create not just an open world game, but an experience that will stay with the players for long into the future. Now i really do not like doing this in articles, a direct copy and paste of quotes from members of the teams but with so many right and wrong directions they could take the game i think for you all to get your own unbiased opinions and thought of the game the full unabridged statements should be added in here to make your own deductions as well. 
 
Case in point, the huge news that Lucasfilm Games and Ubisoft are collaborating on a new story-driven, open-world Star Wars game. It’s a genre long-requested by fans and will come to life via Massive Entertainment, Ubisoft’s critically-acclaimed studio based in Malmö, Sweden. “We’re really excited about an opportunity to work with the team at Massive, led by David Polfeldt and the creative director, Julian Gerighty. We’ve spent almost a year now, working to get to know them and what they want to bring to the table,” Reilly says. “I’m a huge fan of them, personally. I think we’re really excited about where that project is going because they have a unique vision for the story and the game they want to deliver.”
Of course, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment are renowned for their expertise in developing immersive worlds, and in pushing the boundaries of technology with their proprietary engine, Snowdrop. “We know that fans of Star Wars value the feeling of immersion — of being transported into the Star Wars galaxy and moving through richly-detailed environments. It’s fun to imagine what the team at Massive can do within Star Wars by bringing their innovative spirit and their commitment to quality,” Reilly says.
 
As you can see it sounds like they will be trying to keep the story and world of Star Wars true and remain loyal to the fans, but as we know many games have promised this and not quite delivered before.
 

 
Personally, I am hoping for a console version of how the perfect world took STO (Star Trek Online), but with the obvious modern overhaul. Best case scenario for me is an open-world game with a blend of Star Trek Online campaign-style mixed with the world and customization that came in way back in "Knights of the Old Republic". For example, the choice of Jedi or Sith, Bounty Hunter or Smuggler, good vs evil, light vs dark with their own subclasses and beautiful abilities that "Knights Of The Old Republic" brought in, but with STO's campaign system where it runs more like an MMORPG. Where new story arcs can be done alone or with a group, adding an almost unending replayability factor, where alliances and factions can work together in some situations. For example, Jedi and Sith being led down a story arc where it unlocks missions where they must fight together against a common greater enemy, but that's just me spit-balling. To be honest, the idea of jumping in a ship with nothing, but a blaster and a ship full of illegal cargo and bouncing between the different factions controlled space while being tracked by bounty hunters just gets my blood pumping.
 

 
If not, then there is always the rumored "Knights Of the Old Republic 2" which is reportedly in development by another unnamed developer...
 
Help us Ub-i-Soft, you're our only hope...

Mass Effect Legendary Update

Mass Effect Legendary
...oh you beautiful thing you

We have a few tasty news nuggets to drop on everyone this week regarding an old favorite that is the Mass Effect series including the release date.....but instead I'm going to make you read through everything else first because I am a terrible person .
 
So jumping in here now, it has been confirmed that Mass Effect Legendary will be a remastered improved version of the first three games with over 40 DLC's being added to the vanilla game including all story packs, promotional weapons' and armor packs minus a training program which Bioware lost the source code for (as you do i guess) but the rest is all going to be there once more. So from the start screen you will be able to jump into any of the three games as you would wish to, with the choices you make and decisions regarding main story, side arcs and relationships carrying through to the next installment as before.
 
Now as we know from the Master Chief Collection not every remaster truly brings the games into todays levels of focus and resolution despite there best efforts and that can not be faulted, but BioWare seem to be giving it a good try here. Now they were spit-balling the idea of bringing the Mass Effect universe completely up-to-date and changing the entire game engine it runs on; however, it was decided that it would take away a lot of the feeling and nostalgia of the game as well as making them completely remake the game from scratch, no copy and paste options there. However, the work they have done promises that the 3 games have been visually remastered and brought up to 4K, HDR and DX11 with literally tens of thousands of up-ressed textures, lighting, shaders, VFK and enhanced models. There is also a "unleashed" framerate for the PC which I personally have no idea what it means, but it will support high refresh rates and the ultra-wide displays for our PC gamers in here.
 
Now I did manage to find this on YouTube which I thought would be one of the best ways to show the changes so far to look forward to:
 
So basically the game will be set in its roots with few noticeable changes apart from an overhaul of the game, camera angle issues when taking cover, a MASSSSSSSIVE loading time while on the citadel has been dropped royally from the original including the ability to skip the elevators. The main exception to this is Mass Effect 1, which for those fans out there will know how it was more RPG based with Mass Effect 2 and 3 learning from there mistakes and improving the combat system. Mass Effect 1 has taken a lot more work due to this reason with its UI and combat system overhauled to bring it more in line with the following sequels. The only other noteworthy difference in the story seems to be they have tweaked some of the morality choices of Mass Effect 2 to make it a little easier to make sure you are following your choices and not accidentally ruining the playthrough that you are wanting.
 
Now this time we wont be receiving any more content after launch which to be fairs guys, I'm pretty ok with that considering we are getting 3 fresh new games of a franchise we know and love with the DLC added in as well. We can't really complain here to be honest, but they have removed one major thing that Mass Effect 3 kind of did well... that is there is no longer a multiplayer mode. There are statements and paragraphs for their reasoning, but it boils down to a few things from what I have researched and the first is how would you do it? There are still people playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer today, and how would they honor that commitment now? How would it work with/without cross-play? Could they do it justice? In the end, they decided that they wanted to recreate and remaster, reimagine how the world would look for that single player experience, and that is where they draw the line and personally I'm happy with that.

Now to the passion of BioWare, something a lot of people have lost faith in since Anthems great rise...and subsequent fall after the build up and Andromedas mixed reviews as well as the outcry of Mass Effect fans at the original endings to ME3. People have mentioned that too many of BioWare's key players and developers have since moved on yet there are those who remain from the original Mass Effect project team who described the process as a kind of constant progression. Anything they missed or couldn't put in one game, made it to the next, and then the next and the team have been working hard and passionately to reskin and improve on all the angst they were stuck with before when they first started on the mass effect games. With any luck and a little prayer they will now be able to show us the world of Mass Effect, they way it was meant to be shown to the world.
 
Oh yes, I nearly forgot, Mass Effect Legendary is set to release across PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on May 14th, and will be forwards compatible with the series X and PS5.

RareCosmicPepe came to the OW Division about four months ago. He joined our PC 1st bat squad and since then was XO and is now our DO! Pepe plays OW on both PC and PS4. 
I recently sat down with him and asked him a few questions so we could get to know our amazing leader a little bit better!
 
Squared: "What is one fun fact about you?"
Pepe: "I used to be a professional flying trapeze artist in Japan."
Squared: " I have seen some of these videos, and it is truly impressive! I don't know how you could do it. I would be terrified!"
 
Squared: "What are your favorite video games?"
Pepe: "Overwatch (obviously), Valorant, Apex, Dota Underlords."
 
Squared: "If you were to compare yourself to any OW hero who would it be and why?"
Pepe: "Mercyyyyy - she’s very much support. Always flying from person to person offering help when they need it and giving them a boost when they need it to finish the task at hand. Reviving so their teammates can capitalize on a missed opportunity.
Squared: "I can see you as a Mercy too! The flying part- you have lots of experience from when you were a trapeze artist, and you are also super helpful to anyone that you see needs it!"
 
Squared: "What is your vision for the OW Division?"
Pepe: "I would love to see us grow! We already are one of the best divisions TG has to offer, but I know we can continue to grow and become a bigger family!"
Squared: "I'm here to support you in this endeavor! We have an amazing group of folks here already!"
 
Squared: " Are you glad that I stepped down, and as far as OW division goes I'm no longer your boss?"
Pepe: "No. To be honest, I did not want to be DO. I wanted to work under you until I left TG, but you're off to bigger, better things and I felt equipped to handle the role. I love what I do, but you left some big shoes to fill and I can only hope I can do so. ☺️
Squared: "Awww Pepe! To be honest, I can still wear kid shoes, so I'm not sure how big the shoes are that you found to fill!  You have done great things thus far, and I'm excited to see what happens in the future with you as our leader!"

Calling all USEC and BEAR

Escape from Tarkov, one of the most in depth and ambitious “Looter Shooters” to date, is officially making a comeback within Tactical Gaming. This is a hardcore FPS made by Battlestate Games.
 
Under the Command of TypicalVeteran-, who joined TG back in 2016, the EFT Division is aiming to be the pride and joy of TG.
 
Escape from Tarkov is a challenging game to get into. With unforgivable AI, no HUD, extremely detailed weapons and ammunition, expansive maps, and RPG mechanics. EFT has a learning curve that some may view as un-learnable. 
 
With the challenge, comes limitless potential to be rewarding. Escape from Tarkov is the perfect game for TG. The Teamwork alone is perfect for like-minded gamers like us, but the possibility to learn, teach, and overcome the learning curve is what makes playing EFT with squad members that much more rewarding. 
 
If you enjoy Battlefield, PUBG, or Warzone- it's time to elevate your potential here in TG, it's time to band together and own Tarkov. 
 
Anyone who is interested in being a squad member for EFT, please don't hesitate to contact @Typicalveteran- or @TGxMcshaxx for more information.

Somethings You Say Live That You Can't Take Back

Hey TG,

So... something happened on the TG Twitch Channel between @Senile Sarge and @TG-AMP! 

Here is the story so far...

On Sunday, the 10th of January, Call of Duty had an Officers Q&A Livestream with @TG-AMP, @TG Badmoon, and @TG-xPapa_Copiax

Senile Sarge asked a couple of questions aimed at taunting TG-AMP:
 "Who's the best player in Call of Duty? (1v1 me bro??)" & "Why do my skills for Call of Duty far outweigh that of TG-Amp? (asking for a friend)" (Click the quotes to hear the clips from the CoD Q&A Stream.)
 
Then, after hearing TG-AMP's reply... on the TG Twitch Channel, Senile Sarge replied...
