Ball sports on menu
Gaming night is coming around again and this month The Youth Shed and EB Games are bringing you a massive sports night.
FIFA 16 and NBA 16 will feature on Tuesday, October 20.
FIFA 16, released in September, has some fantastic new features and now contains 78 stadiums including 50 real-world venues and 12 national women’s teams.
Increased realism and enhancements to training in career mode and friendly matches mean you have more control over your team’s performance.
This increases your players transfer values.
NBA 16 goes further than previous versions in MyCareer mode, creating a life story for your player that has an effect on your basketball career throughout the game.
The game also touts improved visuals, player customisation and overall gameplay in comparison to its predecessor.
It has a MyTeam mode that allows you to create a team from scratch and play five-on-five games against others online.
Anyone aged 11 and over is welcome to come along from 6pm to 8pm to test out the new games or show off their online sporting prowess.
You can also have a chat about what’s new in the world of gaming with Brett from EB Games.
To register interest, contact Elyce Huren on 9186 8586 or Elyce.firstname.lastname@example.org. Get down to Moonrise Cinema this weekend to catch two new movies screening on Friday and Saturday night.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will screen at 7pm this Friday.
Adapted from James Dashner’s novel, The Scorch Trials, this is the second instalment of dystopian thriller series Maze Runner.
In this sequel, Thomas and his fellow teenage Gladers are transported to a remote fortified outpost where they find themselves in trouble after uncovering a diabolical plot from the mysterious and powerful organisation, WCKD.
With help from a new ally, the Gladers stage a daring escape into the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with dangerous obstacles and crawling with the virus-infected Cranks.
The Gladers’ only hope may be to find the Right Hand, a group of resistance fighters who can help them battle WCKD.
On Saturday night, head out for Pixels, a science-fiction action-comedy where all your favourite video games attempt to take over the Earth.
When aliens intercept video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack Earth, using the games as models.
Knowing that he must employ a similar strategy, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood pal, former video-game champion and home-theatre installer Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to lead a team of old-school arcade players and a military specialist (Michelle Monaghan) in an all-out battle to save the planet.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is rated M and runs for 2hr12min., and Pixels is rated PG, running for 1hr46min.
