Become an attacking powerhouse
Taste the tension and take the big hits as EA SPORTS™ Rugby 06 slams you back into the scrum for the most realistic and intense rugby experience yet. Keep the match flowing with new off-load passing and quick set plays and get as close as you can get to the mud, sweat and tears of the real thing with faster, more realistic and responsive gameplay. Drive your team to victory with effective use of your impact players whose innovation, inspiration and discipline can mean the difference between a humiliating defeat and a spectacular win. When the pressure is really on and the game is on the line, resort to tough tactics to neutralise your opposition’s impact players. Used at the right time, laying a high hit on an opponent can turn the game in your favour. But remember, it’s just as likely to hand the advantage to your rivals – and land your player in the dreaded sin bin. With authentic teams and players, more expansive gameplay and all-new hard-hitting action, EA SPORTS™ Rugby 06 lays bare the heart and soul of the greatest game on earth.

Don't miss the world premiere of the Commandos Strike Force single-player demo! Commandos Strike Force is a new first person tactical shooter featuring three members of the 'Strike Force' unit, the Green Beret, Sniper and Spy, each with a unique set of skills and weapons. Confronted by Nazi forces in Stalingrad, Norway and France, you will engage in top-secret missions to sabotage, kidnap officials and foil enemy plans behind enemy lines.
The single-player demo includes two playable levels:
-- As the spy stalk and kill the enemy throughout the French countryside. This training level will teach you the basic skills.
Green Beret and Sniper Level -- Lead an ambush in this two-commando mission. Switch on-the-fly between the Green Beret and Sniper as you work your way up the mountain pass.
Commandos Strike Force will be available in stores on April 4, 2006.
Updated results from Round 1 attached. Click the picture to see the scores. No scores were recorded from Far Cry due to Screen Dump problems. This should be rectified by Round 2.
As previously advised the scoring system is as follows:
Players receive 1 point for finishing last, 2 points for second last, 3 points for third last, etc.
The best 4 scores in each style of game (shooter, racer, strategy) will count towards the end of year total. Which means they will have 12 scores added together and the highest total in November will win.
In future, if we have too many for one server of a game, we will organise a second server and if possible even up the numbers and the standard.
Team scores were the results of the Far Cry Maps played.
Jing & MCSkinky didn't play racing or strategy, so they didn't record any scores for the night. Total attendance 19.
V8 had 11 players
Powerslide had 3
Dota had 9
Zero Hour had 3
Settlers of Catan had 3
We didn't run Top Gun at the first LAN but we will from Round 2 on.
You need to vote on which game we play for 2006 as the Top Gun Game.
The Middle-earth You’ve Never Seen...
GameSpot is proud to announce the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II single-player demo. Get your first look at this highly anticipated RTS sequel, and unlock the world of Middle-earth as it was meant to be! With a wealth of content taken from Tolkien’s original fantasy novels, you can now experience unseen lands and mythical campaigns that go beyond the famous motion pictures.
The 30 Hour LAN was huge.
Lots of people, lots of gaming and lots of food.
In addition the airconditioned hall was a real asset meaning there were no stinky bodies lying around like last year!
Having the stage set up with the pool table and couches meant people could take breaks from their PC's and play some pool (some excellent games of kelly pooly were played), poker, watch TV and sleep on the couches.
Rochie and N3ur0 were the only ones to stay awake the whole 30 hours with MirkPigsy coming very close - just falling asleep in the last hour or so.
LAN Games played included Warcraft DOTA and Battleships, Far Cry, V8 Supercars 2, CounterStrike, Settlers, Wolfenstein ET and more.
Disappointing was the efforts to get Flatout going. It is an excellent game but seems to have real problems with the network. Doesn't look like we can play that this year.
No one was interested in playing Generals so thats probably going to get scrubbed also.
The stand out winners were DOTA and Far Cry. Penguin Boy supplied some excellent new maps - thanks PB!. It seems the Assault Maps are the most preferred with some insane FFA sessions (particulalry on Surf) happening.
Add your comments below or in the forums where MirkPigsy has added a topic.
