I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. My mission is to lurk and discover secrets, create guides and provide you with some important news. I mostly play FPS and love experimenting in good MMORPGs.

    There is no music in this release. Not sure if someone dropped the ball or if NIN said “No!” at the last minute. Also, it would be great if they changed the multiplayer to server based, rather than peer to peer. That way, we could enjoy team fortress in it’s original Quakey glory!
