So, here’s the deal. I’m preparing a new video series to post here, which will serve several different functions. The first is to get myself comfortable with commentary, which is something I need to work on. So far I’m only really good at commentating bad movies, something I enjoy doing. Next, I’ve never edited videos for [...]

2011 has a large number of great games in store. And whether you love shooting things until they die or punching people until they’re hospitalized, there’s something special waiting for your personal sociopathic niche. But we’re not here to talk about you, we’re here for me to dictate my opinion at you while the hidden text between each line slowly brainwashes you into joining my soon-to-be-announced cult.
Enough prelude; let’s check out the list!
My next post will be about the stats of Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam, I promise. I had to get this off my chest. I can’t conceivably cover everything the title suggests, so instead I’ll do one of both, the extremes, as I see them. First, the good: uniqueness of combat. When I hop into Call of [...]
While playing RDR and re-playing Zelda: Ocarina of Time this past week or so, I asked myself how the tactics these games require could translate into an article. I could have done some bullshit piece like “How to Rock Ultimate at Horseshoes in RDR” but that would have been a total cop-out. So, I got to thinking about all those general things necessary in more or less every game. So today, I’ll be talking about a bunch of considerations that can be boiled down to one simple goal: How to Not Suck.
In the past few weeks, we’ve had some major holidays, a lot of filler cool articles, and a lot of support from the TF2, WoW, and ACB communities. First of all, thanks.
I’d like to give a personal shout-out* to Vendetta, a comrade in the subtle art of Team Fortress 2 espionage. Over the past few weeks, he’s hooked me up with free hats, metal, paint and more, as well as generally being a swell bloke and a talented Spy. While I had promised him a while back I’d give him some recognition in my next Spy video, I haven’t found suitable footage yet, so I figured he was due some love on T3.
If you play in Australia or you just want to make acquaintances with this virtuous vigilante, drop the V-man a line or check out his budding YouTube channel.
With 2011 in view, it’s time to take a long, hard look at the nasty habits you’ve accumulated and take a solemn oath to change for the better, if only for the first two weeks of January. While I could use this space to talk about my own resolutions for the year, I don’t have any personal flaws. However, dear reader, you most certainly do. Let’s look at the top 5 ways you can become a better gamer and a better person as we jump into a brand new decade.
What Vietnam is doing is reenforcing this boring playstyle without a viable way for a Recon to use a sniper rifle up close. He has to either grab an automatic, flamethrower or shotgun… but then he’s really better off just playing one of the other three kits.
Whether you’re Australian or American, Catholic or Baptist, child or adult, there’s one thing we can all agree on:
The best way to celebrate the life of a transient preacher is with rampant consumerism!
Top Tier Tactics would like to wish everyone a joyous, safe, blessed, and loot-filled Christmas. It’s this time of year that we remember the true meaning of Christmas: whatever last year’s ABC Family Special said it was! I’m pretty sure it has something to do with selflessness or uh, going back to your roots. Or maybe it was just a re-run of Jingle All the Way.
Terrible movies aside, enjoy your holiday celebrations. Just go easy on the eggnog. It’s like 350 calories a serving.
It’s nearly Australian Christmas, and it appears Valve has left a boatload of presents under the tree for players the world over, regardless of their Australian citizenship status.
Now, before we get too far into this article, I’d like to preface it with a reminder of my stance on the Mann Co. Store. The verdict? Don’t even think about whining about the Mann Co. Store. Imagine your future self looking back on your present self, whining over something as petty as a virtual, optional item shop.
That’s right: it’s really, really sad.
So let’s skip past the judgment and straight into things you actually enjoy:
Guns and other implements of murder!
