An impressive 9 operatives presented themselves to take on the head to head challenge in a virtual sense at the EDGE Command Centre on Friday evening.
RACING: Fred pulled out all stops for the second consecutive week, holding Tone at bay, or rather, pushing Tone out of the way in order to claim the "Edge V8 Supercars Perpetual Trophy", in what could only be described as over eager brutal racing. The action became so heated between this two fierce rivals, that eventually all other participating racers dropped out of the Championship to witness said carnage. The Marshalls are investigating the claim that in order to lighten his vehicle, Fred removed his brakes and decided to use other racers cars to slow himself down for the corners. Tone has thrown down the gauntlet in preperation for next weeks exciting round.
FRAGGING: A long-time old favouite, Soldier of Fortune II was revisited, after Agent Wood discovered the "Gold" edition on sale for the bargain price of $10 (Electronic Boutique).
A fantastic FPS which runs well on older hardware, the "Gold" edition introduces some new maps and weapons. One map had us running around boxes in a smallish warehouse, with some frantically paced action, totally different gameplay to some of the larger maps. Darklord throwing grenades and jumping around like an idiot made a difficult target, especially with sidekick Wood lurking in the shadows. The Edge Elite Frag Force once again succumbed to the overwhelming power of the Darkside in what can only be described as a slaughterfest, however, despite the onslaught, Tone managed at one stage to take down the "Daily Double" – that is Wood and Darklord, BANG BANG!! He went to bed happy.
Until next we meet … good fortune.
