The medieval-themed building/action/sim game Castle Flipper is coming to Steam on May 27th, 2021
05.10.2021 17:00:10 "The Poland-based indie games publishers Gaming Factory and Ultimate Games in cooperation with indie games developer Pyramid Games, are today very happy and excited to announce that their medieval-themed building/action/sim game "Castle Flipper" is coming to PC via Steam on May 27th, 2021." - Jonas Ek, TGG.
05.10.2021 16:00:10 The next Battlefield game could potentially be revealed in June according to a cheeky tweet from the game's official Twitter account.
A new Battlefield game is finally coming later this year after the series took a brief hiatus from annual releases. While Battlefield games are typically released in the fall, a reveal next month could be in the cards.
"Words that rhyme with Soon: June Boom," the Battlefield Twitter account posted. A likely indication that whatever the folks at EA DICE are working on, we could see it next month.
In 2019 EA announced that it wouldn't release a Battlefield game in 2020, breaking the annual cycle for the series. While EA didn't offer a reason, Battlefield 5 wasn't the best-received game in the franchise, and it was understood that developer DICE was going back to the drawing board for the next Battlefield game.
More information on the new Battlefield game began coming out earlier this year, however. First, EA revealed that the next Battlefield game would take full advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X systems.
Then, during the announcement of a Battlefield mobile game, DICE general manager Oskar Gabrielson said it has the biggest team in series history working on Battlefield 6, and that a reveal will happen "soon."
[widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=every-ign-battlefield-review&captions=true"]
There have been a few leaked screenshots since Gabrielson's announcement, so perhaps EA is thinking it should officially reveal the next Battlefield game sooner rather than later.

“Live for nothing or die for something.” Rambo enters Call of Duty, raging and muscles flexing, as he is revealed to be the newest skin that will be available on May 20, 2021 for Call of Duty: Warzone, and we presume, Black Ops Cold War.
The iconic movie hero is the latest star that players can get their hands on and live its persona. In a tweet, Call of Duty teases a video showing Rambo, in his signature bandana, as he stares down a running opponent. He has his bow and arrow on hand as he fires the blazing arrow. The short teaser places in all caps “Become War” and reveals a May 20 launch date.
Recently, John McClane was teased to join Call of Duty after the same account unveiled a poster with the title, “Nakatomi Duct Cleaning,” referencing Die Hard.
The string of potential skins are from movies released in the 90s, with Rambo in 1982 and Die Hard in 1988. The 80s throwback can be tied to the recent Call of Duty: Warzone event that brought Verdansk back to the 80s.
Are you going to get the skin and feel like Rambo on the battlefield or are you going to “Yipee-Kay-Yay” your way to the top with John McClane?
Well, it seems that “soon” means a lot of things to people, and for EA, soon means about two months away. Following rumors that the Battlefield 2021 was set for this month, EA has announced that the reveal will be happening in June.
While there’s no exact date yet for when the reveal is, this year’s digital E3 is happening, and EA is once again hosting an EA Play event as well. Chances are, we’ll see a reveal before EA Play, with EA’s digital event the place where the publisher will unveil some actual gameplay.
Activision No Longer Working With Call of Duty Actor After Sexist Comments
05.10.2021 08:00:11 Activision has said that it will no longer work with Call of Duty voice actor Jeff Leach after a series of sexist comments Leach has made surfaced on social media.
Leach was responsible for the voice of Simon 'Ghost' Riley in 2019's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Mobile. As part of a Twitter thread from YouTuber NitroLukeDX, a video featuring some of Leach's past remarks has been circulating on social media. The video includes clips from Leach, across multiple streams, making explicit, sexual, and hateful remarks about women.
The video below includes offensive language:
Activision provided a statement to CharlieIntel on May 8 condemning the actor's remarks, and cutting professional ties with him. "Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society,” Activision said. “Activision is no longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.”
Leach was previously banned from Twitch for comments made about streamer TheZombiUnicorn in 2017, and has since become a streamer on Facebook Gaming. Facebook has not commented at time of writing. TheZombiUnicorn has since posted a response to the new video of Leach, calling on platforms and sponsors supporting Leach to take action.
Leach has not outwardly commented on the video, or Activision's decision to cut ties with him, but (seemingly due to fan backlash over the decision) tweeted to say that "anyone who sends threatening messages is not representative of me or my community and I do not condone this is [sic] any way." In replies on Twitter, Leach has been defending his actions on stream, saying that the later clips are responses to trolls in his chat and he was using his experience "as a professional comic" to "destroy them."

Call of Duty: Warzone May Soon Add Rambo and Die Hard's John McClane
05.10.2021 03:00:10 Alongside Verdansk '84, Call of Duty: Warzone looks to be continuing the celebration of the 1980s as it is teasing the arrival of both John Rambo and Die Hard's John McLane.
A few days ago, the Call of Duty Twitter account asked if anyone knew "SURVIVORJOHN#1009062?" Their #WarzoneReport is pretty impressive as it shows they have 552 kills, and infinite K/D ratio, 0 deaths, 5 games played, 5 wins, and 7 hours played.
By doing a bit of digging into the history of Rambo, you will find that there have been five Rambo films (5 games played and 5 wins) - which all have a combined runtime of 7.8 hours (7 hours payed) - and Rambo has not yet died in his films (0 deaths) and has killed, according to Fandom.com, exactly 552 people (552 kills).
John McClane's tease is a bit more involved, as there is a brand new website - NakatomiDuctCleaning.com - that hints at his arrival.
On Twitter, Call of Duty said "Air ducts are a complicated network of danger. If yours are in need of repair, call the best business at Nakatomi Duct Cleaning."
For those unaware, Nakatomi Corporation was where McClane's estranged wife worked. Upon reaching Nakatomi Plaza, the events of Die Hard kick off and McClane eventually finds his way into the aforementioned air ducts, hence the name.
The Nakatomi Duct Cleaning website features more nods to McClane, including "Say Yippee Ki Yay to Dust" and a Schedule An Appointment button that automatically tries to send an e-mail to email@example.com.
While no further details have been revealed, these 1980s' action heroes arriving in Call of Duty: Warzone would mark the first time characters from another pop culture property make their way into the free-to-play battle royale.

TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:

In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
