Having topped the standings in the League earlier this season, Onduparaka now find themselves 6th, 17 points of the pace.If they fail to win away to Mbarara, they will have gone 8 league games without victory, a situation that spells disaster for the Arua based side.What they are saying ahead of the game:Baker Kasule, Mbarara City assistant head coach.“We are ready for the game. We got two red cards the last time we played Onduparaka but thankfully we got a point off them.“We are used to playing and winning at home so they (Onduparaka) and not we are under pressure. We know we have an upper hand going into the game and believe we will win.Sadiq Sempiji, Onduparaka FC head coach.“Mbarara are a strong side at home like most of the teams in the League.That is all because teams prepare well at home, you have to utilize your home advantage but that doesn’t mean we are tourists in Kakyeka because Mbarara are at home.Match Facts:This will be the fourth top flight meeting between the two sides eversince Mbarara returned to the top flight in 2017.In the first three, Mbarara is yet to lose a game to the Caterpillars (W1 D2).The first game between the two this season ended in a 0-0 draw at the Green Light Stadium in Arua.In the reverse fixture last season, Mbarara defeated Onduparaka 1-0 at Kakyeka.This fixture has seen only one goal in the last three meetings, the least goal tally between two sides in the top flight during that period.Mbarara go into the game unbeaten in any of their last 10 League games (W5 D5). The last time the Ankole Lions lost in the league was in the 3-1 loss away to police on 30-11-2018.At home, they are yet to taste defeat this season, winning 8 and drawing two of their first 10 games.For Onduparaka, they are currently in need of inspiration as they have won only one of their last 9 games in all competitions (D4 L4).Away from home, they have lost four of their last six games (W1 D1).The other games on Wednesday:-Ndejje University vs Tooro United @4:30pm-Bul FC vs SC Villa @4:30pmComments Tags: Baker KasuleMbarara Cityonduparaka fcSadiq SempijiStarTimes Uganda Premeir Leaguetoplast_img read more

Steam has Final Fantasy VII VIII but wont let you buy them

first_imgIf you ask anyone who owned a PSOne to name one of their top games, most people would mention Final Fantasy VII. For a lot of players that’s still the best Final Fantasy game ever released.As you may or may not know, FFVII and it’s followup FFVIII both got ported to the PC. However, it was a straight port of the console version meaning it brought nothing new and suffered because of it. There was also reports of it crashing a lot, especially on more modern versions of Windows.Recently some investigation work by RPGSite on Steam has revealed both games are listed on the service. Better yet, they seem to have been modified meaning someone has attempted to update both games to work on the latest versions of Windows. Unfortunately you can’t purchase the games as they are hidden within Steam’s registry.Both games were found using the Steam Registry Toolkit which allows you to look at the internals of Valve’s digital gaming service. There’s actually four listings for the game as you can see in the screenshot below:Accompanying them is a launcher application very similar to the one released by modder Tobias Sebring back in 2007 for making the original 2000 Eidos ports work on the latest versions of Windows. The launcher also allowed higher resolutions to be used for the game. So it does look like Square Enix was attempting some form of re-release, but the files haven’t been touched since last year.If we had to guess we’d say the games were added as part of Eidos’ back catalog, but have since been put on indefinite hold as Square Enix acquired the publisher and probably doesn’t want the games re-released in anything other than perfect working order.Will we ever see FFVII and FFVIII become available on Steam? I highly doubt it unless Square Enix decides to celebrate one of the game’s upcoming anniversaries with an update for PC gamers. I don’t think PC is a platform they are really concerned about, though, as is the case for a lot of game publishers today.Read more at RPGSitelast_img read more
