    Hello there

    I’m been a gamer ever since I had to stand on a beer crate to see into the eerie green glow of a Space Invaders cabinet. That was some years ago now and many games have been and gone - along with much of my free time. Being in short supply, I want to make my gaming hours count, which is where I hope you fine people come in….

    The reason I’m looking to join TOG is to get back to what I’ve always liked most - playing with other people. As much as I enjoy the latest open-world action game (RDR2, currently), what I really want to do is immerse myself in games I’ve only really dabbled in: Elite: Dangerous, Elder Scrolls Online and Star Citizen (among others). I’d also like to play a good co-op / loot shooter (Hunt, Vermintide… Anthem is pre-ordered) and, ideally, get to grips with a milsim or two, such as Squad, Arma or Insurgency.

    I live in France, so mid-to-late CET weekday evenings are my preferred game times.

    Cheers, tally-ho and all that!

    Most welcome Zapatero!

    I see you are a writer, what sort of things?

    I hope you find a good gaming home here,

    Welcome to the TOG community!!!

    Below is your “Induction kit” which consists of several links or shortcuts to help get you started and navigate around the TOG site a little quicker.


    Public Forums “Blue Light Disco” area i.e. Where the under 25 and non-members hang out. Note public members do not have access to any of the forums below.
    Member Forums Put your feet up grab a coffee, beer, wine or prune juice and relax with a multitude of topics including general chat, funnies, videos, VR and also some Geek stuff. (ask Kev how do you cook an egg on a CPU.)
    Member News As suggested in the link however please note that brain farts do not constitute as news and most likely belong in general chat above.
    Simulation and Sports Divisions This is for all financially challenged that might not able to afford their own personal Fighter jet or Formula one racing car or perhaps you are just reliving the old moments of glory when you were able to kick a football beyond the front letter box.
    FPS Gods and Legends are both created and destroyed here with most tiers one games being catered for. It has been scientifically proven at TOG headquarters that a 60+ year old can still outsmart a teenager with inhuman reflexes. (Bring your own tissues!)
    MMORPG This is where the imaginative dreamers go to temporarily escape their mundane existence of everyday life . If you’re lucky enough you may even find that mystical unicorn you always searched for.
    Strategy, RPG and other Games Similar to above however with fewer unicorn’s and maybe the occasional game of chess.
    Operations Where you get to annoy the guys in RED with any account issues… or just annoy them.


    All the TOG sponsored external site information can be found here Facebook , Steam and Discord .

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    I used to be a games journo, but now I write for a couple of games. Web copy, video scripts, the odd scrap of in-game text - nothing too exciting.

    These two games alone help start a revolution :)

    Never had to stand on a beer crate to play them though, wondering if the crate was full or empty.
