Star Trek Online
VG ENGAGE !!!! Star Trek Online has shown
itself in TAW before however this time it comes back with a bite, its new F2P
and its new expansion will have trekkies quaking in their boots!!! Here is a
rundown on the game
Star Trek Online, often abbreviated as STO, is a massively
multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Cryptic
Studios based on the popular Star Trek series created
by Gene Roddenberry. The game is set in the 25th century, 30 years after
the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. Star Trek Online is
the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game within the Star
Trekfranchise and was released on February 2, 2010. At launch, the game
required a game purchase and a recurring monthly fee.
On January 17, 2012 it relaunched with a tier
of free-to-play access available. However, due to it being
transferred to free to play, the game is no longer available as a retail game
and can be downloaded from Perfect World Entertainment.
Star Trek Online is set in the year 2409, thirty years after the events
of Star Trek: Nemesis. The peace treaty between the United
Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, established in Star
Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and strengthened by the Dominion
War arc of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has collapsed, and both
sides are once again at war. The Romulan Star Empire continues to
deal with the fallout of the loss of their homeworld twenty-two years earlier
(as shown in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot), and
the Borg Collective has re-emerged as a major threat.
Each player is the captain of their own
individual ship, utilizing any and all officers who have access to a ship,
including the player's character. In keeping with naval tradition, anyone who
commands a ship, regardless of his or her actual rank, is considered a de facto
"captain".Players can start in Star Trek initially in only one
faction as a Federation Captain, but other factions unlock as players level up.
Currently there are three factions available: Federation, Klingon and Romulan. With
the newest patch Legacy of Romulus, The Klingon and Romulan factions could now
be started at level 1 Bridge Officers have a separate progression,
including the purchase of skills and equipment, and can be promoted to higher
ranks by their ship's captain.
The game features references to several
famous storylines, ships, and characters from various Star Trek shows. The
story unfolds in the standard timeline established within the televised Star
Trek series, mostly ignoring the events presented in Abrams' Star Trek reboot,
which is set in an alternate timeline. However, it does follow the plot from
the reboot - the destruction of Romulus - that is within the "prime"
Star Trek universe. One confirmed reference to Abrams' film was revealed when Zachary
Quinto announced at the 2009 Spike TV Video Game Awards that he will be
voicing dialogue during the game's tutorial. Leonard Nimoy is heard
for all of the gameplay and exploration voice-over samples. The LCARS computer
system dialog is voiced by a Majel Barrett impersonator.
In Star Trek Online, each
player acts as the captain of his own ship. Players are able to play as a
starship, controlling the ship's engineering, tactical and science systems by
keyboard/mouse or using an on-screen console. Players can also "beam
down" and move around as a player character in various settings with
access to weapons and specific support and combat skills relating to their own
character's class. The two combat systems are intertwined throughout the game:
away-team missions feature fast-paced "run-and-gun" combat, while
space combat stresses the long-term tactical aspect of combat between capital
ships. Both are offered in concert with the Star Trek storyline and emphasize
ship positioning to efficiently utilize shields during space combat, as well as
the player's away team's positioning in consideration of flanking damage and
finding various weaknesses to exploit during ground combat.

With MMO's doing well in TAW Vanguard have
brought in a MMO that stems from a lot of TAW members past with games like
Baulders Gate and Neverwinter Nights , I personally grew up on these games and
loved them all so it's only fitting that the Best online gaming community
should show it some grace and place it in our ranks , here is a rundown of the
game and some lore !
One hundred years have passed since the
Spellplague forever changed the magical and mysterious lands of Faerûn. Mighty
empires fell and great cities toppled, leaving only monster-haunted ruins and
survivors struggling to rebuild.
The city of Neverwinter, the Jewel of the North, seemed blessed by the gods.
While the rest of the Sword Coast was devastated by the event, Neverwinter
survived largely intact. But this was only a temporary reprieve from its
inevitable doom. Nearly 75 years later, a volcanic eruption rained fire, ash
and molten fury upon the city, annihilating everything in its wake.
Today, Neverwinter has restored much of its former glory. Lord Neverember of
Waterdeep has taken the city under his protection and put forth a call to all
adventurers and heroes of the Savage North to help rebuild Neverwinter in the
hopes that one day he can lay claim to her throne and crown. But evil forces
conspire in the dark places of the world, seeking to undermine all...
Explore and defend one of the most beloved
cities from Dungeons & Dragons as it rises from the ashes of destruction.
This action RPG set in an immersive MMO world will take you from the besieged
walls of the city to subterranean passageways in search of forgotten secrets
and lost treasure.
Challenging, Complex, Classic
Epic stories, action combat and classic
roleplaying await those heroes courageous enough to enter the fantastic world
of Toril and the ruined City of Neverwinter.

VG is pleased to be able to caterer to
everybodies taste and we recently turned defiance into a full spin up team as
it is doing very well in all aspects, here is a rundown of the game
Defiance is a science-fiction-themed persistent
world MMORPG third-person shooter from Trion Worlds. Defiance takes
place on a terraformed Earth several decades into the future. It is a
tie-in to the Syfy show of the same name. The game was
released on April 2, 2013 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation
3 and Xbox 360 It was also released on Steam.
dynamic events called "Arkfalls". Arkfalls are massive chunks of
alien ships containing valuable technology that fall from space, attracting
Human and Votan scavengers and ark hunters.
Unlike other MMOs Defiance does
not have strict classes, instead allowing players to choose an
"origin". Origins do not limit what abilities, weapons or outfits the
players can choose. The four origins are Veterans, Outlaws, Machinists, and
Players can have a great deal of control
over their physical appearance including hair, gender, facial features,
clothing and tattoos. Players can choose to be either a Human or an
"Irathient" (a humanoid alien species who are similar to humans).
The Ark Hunters are injected with an EGO
(Environmental Guardian Online), a symbiotic, neuro-muscular bionetic implant
developed by Von Bach Industries, which helps players navigate the Bay Area and
gives them access to unique abilities.
Trion introduced a new rewards system
called "Arkfall Codes".Players use these 6-digit Arkfall Codes to
unlock special bonuses and customization for their characters such as extra
inventory slots, titles, and perks. These codes are hidden in various media
such as official blogs and videos. As of May 1, 2013, there are 15 free gifts,
available to all characters created on that account.
The game takes place in the San Francisco
Bay Area, following a devastating war between Earth and a loose alliance of
extraterrestrial races known as Votans. The Votans came to Earth seeking a
new home after the destruction of their solar system, unaware that the planet
was already inhabited. Friction between the new arrivals and Humanity led to
war, during which terraforming technology was unleashed. The Earth's
surface was drastically altered as a result, introducing radical changes in
topography, the extinction of plant and animal species and the emergence of new
species. Afterward, Humans and Votans were forced to live together. Player
characters are enlisted as "Ark Hunters" by industrialist Karl Von
Bach to search the Bay Area for advanced and expensive alien technology.
Players also take part in side missions to earn cash, or challenges in which
they compete with other Ark Hunters.
Hawken is running very well with great
leadership and a group of TAW members who have shown great teamwork and loyalty
to each other they have all worked very hard to make Hawken as successful as it
is , here is a rundown of the game.
Hawken is a multiplayer mech combat video
game developed by Adhesive Games. The game focuses on creating an intense
battle experience that captures the feel of piloting a mech while keeping the
action fast-paced and strategic. It has been confirmed that the game will
feature two unique game modes, as well as conventional team deathmatch and
free-for-all modes. The open beta of the game was released on December 12.
In an interview with G4, Khang Le, the
Creative Director, stated that Adhesive Games had found a publisher which was
Hawken is a mech-based first-person
shooter. The game takes place in a dystopian human-colonized planet
industrialized to the point of collapse, in which the hunt for resources has
become a battle for survival. Four game modes are planned for release: Team
Deathmatch, Free-for-All Deathmatch, "Siege" and Missile Assault;
Khang Le has said that they also want to do a co-op "Horde"
game mode, resource-and time-permitting. Seven to eight unique maps have been
planned for the game on release, with plans to provide
additional downloadable content afterwards. There will be three
different mech types: a light type, a heavy type, and an all-around type.
The player assumes the role of a battle
mech pilot, armed with cannon-like weaponry. Unlike many other first-person
shooters, weapons will not require ammunition but are prone to overheat.
Overheating will shut down all weapons of the mech, forcing the player to find
a safe place to recover. It will be possible to choose weapons and upgrades for
all mech types to match a play-style or role in a match. In combat, the player
will be able to side dash, boost, and make 180° turns to compensate for the
slow movements of the mech, which will in turn deplete the fuel gauge rapidly.
Turrets are also featured in the game as two types: stationary and
placeable. Stationary turrets will be aligned to the team which activates the
turret, while placeable turrets can be picked up and placed around the map by
On March 9, 2011 Adhesive Games announced
Hawken with a trailer of the work-in-progress, with only 9 months of
development behind it.
Hawken has been developed using
the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). "We were familiar with its
reputation as possibly the most licensed game engine in the industry. Being
able to begin production using a cutting-edge game engine with no start-up cost
offers an important opportunity to indie developers like us," said Khang Le.
Despite their decision the team had almost
no experience with UDK. "We've searched the UDN docs as well as online
tutorials. Using a publicly available engine means it's not only possible, but
likely that there will be information online about whatever we're trying to
accomplish. Also, the UDK community has been very supportive. We often browse
through the forum and read what's possible or not before we make design
The main focus for Le was to deliver the
graphically intense vision he had for the game on a tight schedule with
"triple-A" quality. Within one month of production they were already
able to test out a prototype. The actual name of the game came from the last
name of one of their former 3d artists James Hawkins whom Khang Le was trying
to make fun of resulting in the name "Hawken" in the process."We
couldn't come up with a better-sounding name. We had "Bolthead," we had "Steel
Vultures," a ton of other names like that, but Hawken was just the name that
had a cool sound everyone liked. And gameplay, you have a lot of aerial kind of
movement where you kind of swoop into the enemy, so it sort of makes sense for
Path of Exile (POE)
Courtesy of Wardy - Via Wikipedia
Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in a dark
fantasy world. It is developed by New Zealand based independent
developer Grinding Gear Games and is a
downloadable free-to-play game supported by "ethical micro
transactions". On January 23, 2013, the Open Beta was released. By
March 2013 the subscriber base has reached 2 million players, and during GDC
2013 Chris Wilson from Grinding Gear announced they are looking at a final
release of version 1.0 within about six months (late 2013), yearly expansions
are further planned for the following 5 to 10 years.
The player controls a single character from
an overhead perspective and explores large outdoor areas and underground
caves or dungeons, battling monsters and fulfilling quests
from NPCs to gain experience points and equipment. All
areas aside from the central encampments are randomly generated for increased
re-playability. While all players play on (currently) one server world the game
play outside of encampments is highly instanced providing every
player or party with an isolated map to freely explore.
As is customary with this type of game, the
items are also randomly generated from a wide variety of basic types and
endowed with special properties and gem sockets. They come in different
rarities with increasingly more and/or more powerful properties. Thus a large
part of game play is dedicated to finding well balanced and synergistic

rundown of this game
Firefall is a Free 2 Play game which is
currently in closed beta , however it will open up to general public at some
point, please see below some information I found on Wikipedia about the
background of the game.
an event that takes place almost 200 years in the future. An asteroid was
predicted to fly right next to Earth and be a near miss. However, the
asteroid instead entered the gravity well of the Moon and shattered.
Many of these shards began to slam into the Earth while the bulk of the
asteroid entered a low, descending orbit around the Earth, pelting it with even
more debris that continued to break off of the asteroid. Eventually the
asteroid itself crashed into the Earth, and with this event, plummeted mankind
into a new dark age known as the Nine Year Winter. Many of the larger
governments fragmented during this time, while other nations bound together,
forming a strong, unified alliance.
However, during this dark age, scientists
in Japan stumbled upon a new element called crystite. What they first
observed was not real crystite, but seed crystite. Only later when sifting
through the crash site were they able to find this new element, but only a gram
or two was actually uncovered through the sifting of the earth. Many of the
studies on crystite showed that it turns the known laws of physics on their
head, and crystite quickly became a way to generate a massive amount of power
with almost unlimited potential. Soon it became the primary power source in the
world and a new golden age came to pass. However, crystite is a foreign element
that came from the asteroid that impacted into the Earth, and although it is a
resource potentially without limits, the world wanted more.
Humanity was able to plot the trajectory of
the asteroid and figure out that the asteroid came from the distant star system
of Alpha Centauri. Space-faring ships were then built and sent out on the
long journey to discover the source of the original crystite. After four years
of space travel, the first colonists arrive and find a world with an abundance
of crystite. The first colony was created and established with the name Alpha
Prime. As the first massive load of crystite arrived back on earth, seven more
ships were created and began to ferry resources between the two star systems.
Despite this new source of energy, the
world governments begin to fear that with their reliance on crystite, if there
was ever a revolt on Alpha Prime, they could potentially bring Earth to its
knees. Fearing this, they began to create and perfect a technology called
arcfolding which effectively creates a wormhole capable of transporting matter
large distances in a short time. The first tests, however, showed that whatever
was moved using arcfolding technology would freeze to almost absolute zero.
Eventually, an energy field was created and
was able to shield organic life; the first successful test was a mouse sent
from Cambridge to San Francisco with only a location
deviation of 0.2 millimeters. With this technology, instead of ships taking an
eight-year round trip voyage, a ship could do each leg of the journey in as
little as eight days.
And so the creation of the Arclight came to
pass. With the resources and collaboration of the entire world, the creation of
the ship took only a few years from start to finish. A huge ship roughly the
size of a small city with two massive crystite reactors to assist with safely
arcfolding the crew and all those inside. It was meant to be a symbol of power
over Alpha Prime and to serve as a headquarters from which Earth could secure
its future. However, something went dreadfully wrong with its maiden launch.
The Arclight attempted its first arcfold
from a Lagrange point in its orbit for stability purposes. As the
Arclight began to fold space it created what seemed to be a large tear in the
fabric of the universe from which The Melding, a giant energy storm, began to pour
out of the rift. The Melding itself has now settled in swaths across the Earth,
leaving only small pockets of the Earth habitable.
The Melding mutates and transforms all life
and even the terrain of the planet. Recently, humanity has come under attack by
a race calling themselves The Chosen, who have emerged from The Melding. The
player takes on the role of a surviving member of the human race in the fight
to push back The Chosen and to rid the Earth of The Melding.
At this point in time it is known that the
Arclight itself crashed in Fortaleza, Brazil, but the field the
Arclight generates from the seed crystite powering its still active engines has
been able to keep The Melding at bay. Engineers are scared to cannibalize the
Arclight because the field residue, known as a STIZ bubble, is vital to
Fortaleza and doing so would surely jeopardize all those living under its

DCS World includes a vast mission area of the Caucasus region that encompasses
much of Georgia - the location of the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008.
Additionally, DCS World includes:
This all allows the creation of engaging,
real-world combat missions in this flashpoint region. DCS is a true
"sandbox" simulation that can and will cover multiple time periods
covering many types of combat and civilian units. DCS World allows both
realistic game play and more relaxed game play to suit the player.
DCS modules that can plug into DCS World can include aircraft, maps, ground
units, campaigns, etc. Not only can DCS World include modules developed
internally by Eagle Dynamics, but it can also include those by certified third
party developers. The first third party aircraft will be the UH-1H Huey.
DCS World includes a FREE Su-25T "Frogfoot" attack aircraft!
Other modules that can be purchased for DCS World include:
DCS: A-10C Warthog. Warthog brings the most realistic PC simulation of a modern
fixed wing combat aircraft in regards to flight dynamics, avionics, sensors,
and weapon systems. Warthog is considered by many to be the current bench mark
of PC flight simulation.
DCS: Ka-50 Black Shark 2. The Ka-50 "Black Shark" is a unique and
deadly single-seat, Russian attack helicopter that has seen combat in the
Northern Caucasus. It combines a high performance dual rotor system with a
deadly weapons payload of guided missiles, rockets, bombs, and a 30mm
DCS: P-51D Mustang. The most realistic simulation ever done of this legendary
World War 2 ear fighter.
DCS: Combined Arms. DCS: Combined Arms gives you control of ground forces
during the battle. Use the Command Map to move ground forces, set artillery
fire missions, and control the ground battle. Assume the role of a Joint
Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) in multiplayer and designate targets for
player-controlled close air support aircraft, or directly control armor
vehicles or air defense weapons and engage the enemy.

TAW is always looking for new games and one
of those just brought into the Horizon Division is Warframe, feel free to speak
to the staff of VG or WF to enquire about the game, here is a quick explanation
of the game
Warframe is a free-to-play cooperative third-person shooter video game,
developed by Digital Extremes from the
makers of Unreal Tournament. Players control a member of the Tenno,
ancient warriors who have awoken from centuries of cryosleep to find themselves
in a war with the Grineer, a race of militarized humans, and the Corpus. The
Tenno use advanced armour with unique properties, called Warframes in the war
against the Grineer and Corpus.

Note : The video was made in January many of the features have
Open beta trailer : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx5RDaGVkZE
In Warframe, up to 4 players work together to complete missions
such as eliminating enemies or retrieving data from terminals. Players can
carry a primary weapon (such as a rifle or shotgun), a secondary weapon
(usually a pistol), and a melee weapon. Players are given XP (experience
points) for killing enemies and completing missions, which allows them to level
up their weapons and armour. Each Warframe has different abilities that can be
unlocked through the progression system. When equipment is levelled up, it will
unlock mod slots, which can improve or add various stats of weapons and armour,
as well as general stat bonuses.
The camera is positioned over the shoulder for third-person shooting, and the
player can also jump, sprint, slide, and roll, as well as combine techniques to
quickly move throughout the level and avoid enemy fire. Money, ammo, and weapon
and armour mods can be found in set locations, such as lockers, as well as
dropped by enemies. New weapons and warframes can be purchased in the market,
using either credits earned in game, or platinum purchased viamicrotransaction.
Maps are generated from prebuilt rooms connected together, a method known as
Procedural Level creation. All this for Free to Play !!!!

As most of you know Vanguard is a hub of
activity as always, and with MGN "The Workanator" Kingcheese at the helm things
are running pretty smoothly. I would like to now take this opportunity to
congratulate Kingcheese on his 5 year service medal that he was recently
awarded he is the example officer/member of TAW and serves us all from the
front. It has been a happy and sad month for VG, we have had to lose some games
through lack of interest and some through the good and benefit of The Art of
Warfare. However on a lighter note we have also gained some awesome games which
should pan out to be hits within TAW.
With our DC iKon now in full swing and
working hard to secure the future of TAW and our newly brought in DO DukeNukem
the Horizon Division (VG) in now in full flow allowing us to bring even more
games into TAW without the fear of the administration chain to remove them if
they are not successful. We also now have an officer from every region in TAW
allowing us more connection with all of you. I would also like to point out
that our DC just recently tried to retire his CoC and has been awarded a nice
Gump medal for it check out the Gump
We are constantly searching for the next
game to place into TAW, I think currently Kingcheese is working on a 2 games
out 4 games in policy much to my delight!!!! All jokes aside we really are
motoring ahead and getting the games that you the members want to see, so many
of you have put in game requests and its nice to be able to let you have your
say and implement so many games. Keep the suggestions coming and who knows you
may be the next XO or CO of the game you love, just keep in mind that it must
fit TAW criteria and must be a team game.
As big as the workload can get sometimes I
just wanted to personally say some things about VG and how it works, VG has
some great staff and some great games on the books, being Vanguard Lt Commander
has allowed me to work with some of the best in TAW and it always gives me
great satisfaction to see a team succeed, currently things are a bit hectic at
home with the 7 week old keeping me tired but on my toes !!! Saying that seeing
the team work tirelessly to ensure that the games that come to the TAW Army are
suitable and well oiled machines still remains the most important part of all
the VG staff.
To list everything that goes on in the day
of the life of VG Staff would take a few pages so I will just finish this
introduction with saying, we endeavour everyday to make sure you all get what
you want, its our goal to serve you all and guide units into TAW, thank you to
all those that help with the games and the time you spend making sure that we
continue to bring TAW a bright future.
Lets take a look at some of the games currently
in VG and some of the ones currently in Horizon Division....
