Tiger Woods Ghost Recon
Tiger Woods has been in the news recently due to specualtion over a missing tooth.
At a press conference Tiger was asked about the mask he was using to cover the dental damage, to which he responded that it was inspired by the game Ghost Recon.
Not quite the correct design Tiger, but the name check is appreciated!

What Motivates Ghost Recon Modders?
Ghost Recon is a special kind of game in that even after its 13th birthday, it still motivates gamers to create new content for it.
Ghost Recon fans are still gifted such treats on a regular basis and such was the case over the last few months when a relatively new modder to the scene released three fantastic new mods for Ghost Recon.
We interviewed Mr Moon to find out why he took a break from modding ArmA and why he gets a kick out of modding Ghost Recon.
Read the full Mr Moon interview, where you will find Youtube movies and download links for each of his mods. Drop by the forums to discuss and leave your own thoughts around the longevity of Ghost Recon modding.
2015 GRAW 2 Launcher
Gameshare.co have come to the rescue for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 gamers everywhere with an alternative to the now defunt Gamespy Masterserver previously used by Ubisoft. Combined with Gamedigger's new GRAW 2 launcher that bypasses the now defuct Gamespy servers and automatically launches GRAW 2 and connects to the Gameshare server, fans now how a simple alternative to Gamespy.
The launcher allows gamers to browse GRAW2 multiplayer servers - something thought impossible after the demise of Gamespy.
Many thanks to Gameshare.co for this solution and to Struth for his work in bringing this launcher to the Ghost Recon community.

Ghost Recon Announcement
We'll post more here when Ubisoft send out the Press Release!
GRAW 2 PS3 Servers Closed
Ubisoft are shutting down the PS3 GRAW2 servers this month. Considering that it was over 2 years ago that the shut down rumours started, it's perhaps been a long time coming.
Exactly which parts of GRAW2 gameplay will cease to operate on PS3 this month is not clear, with Ubisoft stating that although co-op is unlikely, multiplayer matches may remain.
PC GRAW2 players suffered a similar fate last month when Gamespy shut their doors, however GRAW2 PC continues thanks to clients such as Hamachi and Gameranger. PC gamers can find guides on playing GRAW2 post Gamespy in our GRAW2 forums.
