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.

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.
