I would wait until Target or Big W have it for about $65. They play all the SOO moment before the series every year on Fox.

The previous versions were not realistic enough in game play and basically were crap.

Im happy to sit back and see how this one is before buying. But if I see it in BigW for 60 or there abouts I'll probably buy it.

I got sick of throwing intercepts in the last one.. You couldn't run to the line and pass properly

Yeah, I thought the controls of the last one made it virtually unplayable. I literally played it for about a day or two and never picked it up again

They better have given the controls a complete overhaul this time or I'll be one pissed off gamer

No doubt I'll buy it, but I'll wait until sometime after it's released.

The last game was good once I got the hang of it, but yeah wasn't that realistic. My game plan involved a lot of 40/20's and field goals and it was never worthwhile putting up a bomb or grubber.

I thought having the tackle button as the same one as kick was a serious error in the design

You'd take an intercept and kick it!!

Esports introduces drug tests for professional gamers

ATHLETES using prohibited drugs to gain an unfair physical or mental advantage has plagued sports for generations.

To combat the issue, many of the world’s leading sporting organisations have stringent drug testing procedures for the sole purpose of catching cheats.

The latest association to implement these procedures is the world’s largest competitive video-gaming organisation.

September 10 is the official release for RLL3.

They had something in Sydney last night at The Gamesman for 20 fans to play the game, Dave Klemmer, Aaron Woods and Grub Reynolds were going as well.

Some reports sounds like its pretty good this time, the trailer does look 10x better than RLL2, that game was ok for a while then become boring.

It will be interesting to see how be a pro mode goes, you can make your own player and start in the 20's and do your career, or you can start as a current nrl player or even do a coach mode and coach a team.

Looks pretty good but apparently the controls are the same, and the controls were the main reason I stopped played RLL2 after about forty minutes and never picked it up again.

Bought a PS3 for it and everything.

I hate when they make sports games like that. NBA2K15 is the same. They have the steal button the same as shooting. So you steal the ball in you half then immediately take a hail mary shot from 60.

MC have you seen any of the youtube videos of nba2k16, it looks awesome, they have one of Steph Curry walking up to take a free throw and they have him with his mouth guard out the side of his mouth like he does in real life, in career mode you start in high school or college and have to work your way to make the nba draft. They have changed some of the controls this year as well, I seen the control outlay a few weeks ago.

I'll try find those Videos later on and post them up.

Yeah they have been playing them on ESPN. At times i seriously didn't know if i was watching the game or real life footage.

Another reason for me to invest in a PS4.

I'll wait till the reviews to see if it's a real improvement or not. Nba 2k16 is out around the same time and that is by far my favourite sport game.

I like been the one player . Usually a midfielder.

I got loaned out pretty much straight away too

I was undefeated prior to a 6 week injury and the team got thumped every week for 6 weeks whilst I was out.

If you don't accept a loan you don't play.. You might get a game here and there but it's pretty much a waste of time
