    Sorta... but this doesn't run out, it builds up and stays there when you hold the button.

    I'd think that would be the case. Faster players or players with good acceleration would reach top speed quicker than slower ones. I think that sounds like a good way.

    I like the way Sidhe are coming up with new big ideas to improve the gameplay rather than just putting out the same mediocre ways with improved graphics. As these (passing, sprinting etc.) areas are very important. This game sounds like a winner in my one-eyed opinion.
  5. i dunno..locksley came out and said that rugby2005 was way better than jonah lomu...

    i and many others played lomu till the death of the ps1...still some losers play it lol
    but after purchasing rugby2005 and playing it for a week and ahalf....

    i am bitterly dissappointed that this game is supposively the best rugby sim out there!!!

    coz if it personally gonna address mario.....

    ...becoz i know luigi.....

    Theres no such thing as perfect. Rugby 2005 is better than JLR. Get over that game. Please.

    But, based on what we've heard so far, they have really done up the gameplay, and everything else. I mean, look at the gameplay features....Jumping, stripped balls, an 'inventive' sprinting system (which sounds workable imo), a god (sounding) passing system (one which I have been wanting for ages now), a new kicking system.

    And if they get those done right, thanks to the franchise mode and all of the teams, we'll still be playing this for well after the 2 week lifespan of Rugby 2005.

    ...And they all lived happily ever after.
  7. thats my whole point

    if rugby2005 is BETTER than jlr
    how come me and thousands of others only played this game for like a week???

    its stupid really
    i remember when lomu came out there were competitions held at home amongst neighbors and at school for prizes,even in town at efans and stages(gaming arenas in auckland) they held massive cash prized competions for the best lomu players.and this is over a period of 3-4 years!!!..and rugby2005???...what..where???

    if this is the best its quite tragic really..if these developers r smart then they will deliver some real gameplay for footy fans and their succesful game will grow instead of me purchasing a game that boast alot but only to put it on shelf next to madden 99 and international superstar soccer98...and instead of me and many others thinking :im not gonna buy this game...becoz the last thing that came out like this and promised so im just gonna rent it out every month or so [​IMG]

    Yeah, and remember how at Central Park and Electronic Boutique they still were selling JLR on their shelves way after original players like myself (hahaha) had played it to death for years earlier. We would walk in and say "It's still here."

    I thought JLR was such a good game because there were so many masters and grandmasters and supersaiyangrandmasters around that I was never confident of ever being the best. I only felt that sense of self doubt with Unreal Tournament.
  9. is it tea break at primary skool now gg lol

    No, we don't get any NRL on TV (that I know of) and I don't really like it but Rugby League games are kick ass! I had an old game called 'International Rugby League' made by EA in 1996 (I think) which I played for years. I really enjoy the quickness of the game which is quicker than Rugby Union but I personally MUCH rather like watching Rugby Union.


    BTW sorry for the false alarm [​IMG]

    How good were the Rugby & Rugby League games on the Sega Master System. the gameplay was awesome.

    I agree Rugby 2005 got stale pretty fast. i sold mine after about a month.

    Does anybody know if this game will be released in South Africa? It just looks so good I will have to get it. I don't really follow league (no league coverage to follow in this country) but I want this game.

    So Mario, (if he is still visiting here)

    Is the currently slated release date of 21st October looking likely or unlikely?

    No big promises, no guarantees, just is it likely or not?

    By now a fair idea is surely not a huge ask is it? [​IMG]

    I think Mario does still visit here, and I'm sure you'll find he won't speculate on the release date at all. The best you'll get will be late 2005.

    I've just tapped i8nto Muzzas brain. Apparantly, "At this stage of development we are looking at a possible late 2005 release date for Rugby League 2 (PC and Playstation 2). Maybe."

    He said it was likely to come for the september release date, so even if he did the same for october it wouldnt mean much. Unless there is something really wrong with the game that we dont know about, I reckon it will come on the 30th of October.

    Is that a thursday? Because a lot of games are released on a thursday for some random reason.

    Well, if not an indicator to a release date, how about some idea as to whether this is going to be a franchise, yearly or otherwise?

    This title is called Rugby League 2, not Rugby League 2006 or anything like that. If sales match hopes, will it be a yearly franchise?

    How about some good news of any kind from Mario as some sort of "Thanks for being patient, guys" kind of thing.

    I know your busy Mario, but lets hear something from you, please?

    How about telling me if my team, Cronulla is nearer the top, bottom or middle of the NRL teams abilities in the game?

    Well, here's hoping...

    There isn't much to say really, other than quash the rumours of an October release. Many people are expecting that because some retailers have suggested 21 October will be the release date.

    A release in October is pretty unlikely at this point.
  21. Mr. Laxative

    Mr. Laxative Guest

    So will it be before Christmas? Or will it be out in January or later?
