Sportsmanship and Rules

Posted 18th January 2012 at 12:20 PM by Rage

A lot of things in TOG, as with life, are very black and white. We do not tolerate cheating, hacking or glitching games. We frown upon disrespect towards other players, whether they are TOG members or not. There are also rules to abide by when posting in our forums. And we have an AUP and TOG guidelines to ensure that these rules are understood and followed. But I've come to realise that there are also area's of grey at times, that we can't just sweep into one category or another. As a DC, this...

It's been a while since I've posted to my blog but I'm feeling like I need to just get something off my chest so I'm going to take this opportunity to have a huge vent/whinge. Just post up some thoughts and feelings into the world wide intraweb for all my fellow older gamers to read and perhaps comment on

Five weeks ago, we were blessed with our 3rd child. A little (well not so little) baby girl. Something that I've not told everyone is that it was a VERY difficult birth for my wife,...

For the next couple of hours, we tossed around ideas and came up with what we believed to be a machine of very high standards. The only rule being, it had to fit in a desktop case. The system was made up of the following;

True Freedom + TOG

Posted 4th February 2011 at 11:05 AM by Rage

In our western society, freedom is something we often take for granted. Something that was paid a high price for, by our grandparents and great-grandparents.

A freedom that allows us to believe what we want and speak out against things we disagree with....

The "randomness" of gaming fun

Posted 14th January 2011 at 11:35 AM by Rage

It's surprising how "closed doors" provide reasons for us to explore other avenues or even reignite past passion. This proved to also be the case in the gaming world for me recently.
