Vampire: The Masquerade – The Swan Song has many easy-to-miss encounters and interactions. Of these, the interrogation of a living witness to the disastrous party that initiated the events of the game is particularly difficult to locate. While the witness himself is in plain sight during Leysha’s stealthy investigation of the crime scene, it’s unclear how she can wake them up to strike up a conversation.

Vampire: The Masquerade – The Swan Song is the last entry in the world of darkness series of releases, with development of the RPG handled by Big Bad Wolf. The game was published by Nacon. In the aftermath of a disastrous shootout at a Boston Camarilla party, three vampires search for answers while attempting to survive the deadly reality that is the Dark World.

Leysha, Crime Scene Investigator

In order to locate the witness, Leysha will need to copy a forensic uniform with her Mask of Shadows ability. This can be obtained by targeting the forensic specialist in the kitchen through the hole in the wall. This will give him the run of most of the building except for the balcony, including the access to the bedroom where a bondage session went horribly wrong. A man is hanging over the foot of the bed and officers at the scene pronounced him dead, but Leysha will notice he is still breathing, albeit barely, if she inspects him.

Unfortunately, the witness (whom a note in the main loft room reveals as “Edward”) is in no condition to speak, so Leysha will need a way to revive him before he can answer her questions. issues. For this, she will need access to the balcony, which means a better disguise.

Luckily, heading to the room across the way (where Leysha’s psychologist Richard is) provides a route to the only part of the balcony that isn’t off-limits, and Leysha can find a federal agent blocking the way to the rest of the balcony. . Leysha only has to copy her disguise to make her way to the roof.

Wake up Edward

Having acquired a stylish new outfit, Leysha will have to explore the roof. One of the open boxes contains the key to a medical kit near the tent, and this kit contains an adrenaline syringe that Leysha can use to wake Edward up.

Return to him in the bedroom and examine his stomach for the possibility of giving him adrenaline. After some screaming, he will offer Leysha valuable information, but unfortunately he is too badly injured to save.

Vampire: The Masquerade – The Swan Song is available for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.

PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller for Xbox Series X|S Pastel Series Prints Sat, 21 May 2022 14:05:40 +0000

PowerA has launched its Pastel Series collection of upgraded wired controllers for Xbox Series X|S, so we’ve given you our first impressions of these affordable third-party accessories.

With the cost of living beginning to rise rapidly, it’s becoming harder and harder to justify spending large sums of money on our favorite hobby, especially if you’re a collector who likes to display your accessories instead of use them. With PowerA’s recent launch of its Pastel Series collection of Xbox Series X controllers | S, we wanted to know if they had the potential to join our collection as affordable display pieces or practical play accessories.

PowerA Designed for Xbox Pastel Xbox Series X|S Trailer

PowerA Improved Wired Controller for Xbox Series X|S offers a good number of features for its £34.99 / $37.99 / €41.99 price tag, making it a fairly affordable option for gamers who don’t want to spend too much money on a new controller. If you’re like us, collecting the different styles of Xbox controllers is part of the pastime, and it inspires a sense of pride when your friends and family catch an eye on the accessories displayed during the visit, and tell you lightheartedly ‘re a nerd. However, this can be quite an expensive undertaking, as many of the official special edition Xbox Series X|S Controllers retails for around £64.99 / $69.99 / €69.99 – and it’s no frills, apart from being wireless.

PowerA’s latest collection of Enhanced Xbox Series X|S Controllers comes in five pastel-colored designs: Cotton Candy Blue, Lavender Swirl, Pink Lemonade, Purple Camo, and Pastel Dream, which is what we’re currently reviewing. One of the most remarkable aspects of PowerA’s controller is its almost identical design to Microsoft’s offering, which, at least for us, is what we’d want when displaying it alongside the official controllers – only a few slight inconsistencies on the face of the controller stand out from the official accessories, per through the micro controls and power light, but that’s it.

The visual design of the controller has a light color with a matte finish. It’s quite subtle and helps the metallic D-pad stand out from the rest of the controller details. The rocker surrounds, triggers and bumpers are made of smooth plastic with a glossy finish, so no textured grips on the triggers. If you plan to flaunt the controller, that’s fine, but if it’s something you like about a controller when you’re using it, you might miss the feel. The back has a machine-cut textured grip, so there’s always something for you on that front. As for the textured grips, the rockers themselves have a rough edge, which is susceptible to dirt. Even the cleanest hands in the world won’t save these from needing very regular cleaning, so I’m reluctant to know what condition Dorito’s eaters will make the triggers look like.

Now, beauty aside, how well does it perform as a made-for-Xbox gaming accessory? Pretty good, actually, and there are a few additions you definitely don’t get with Microsoft’s offering. We mentioned earlier that these are lightweight controllers, and they are, which is great for long periods of play. The way PowerA’s upgraded controllers will handle drops – or throws for that matter, like some of you might be used to it – is debatable and we haven’t tried to find out, but for everyday use the build quality seems more than adequate. These are wired controllers, which have a braided, detachable ten foot USB cable for tidy storage or for putting the controller on display.

powera pastel dream upgraded wired controller for xbox series xs convenient

On the feature side, you can expect to find dual vibration motors, the now common share button, and a standard 3.5mm stereo headphone jack. On the front of the controller, there’s a “one-touch” mute and mic volume button so you don’t have to head into your console settings or mess with the headset itself while you’re playing. part. For us, however, the standout feature is the two remappable buttons on the rear of the controller, making it an affordable accessory for those who rely on rear buttons. You can remap on the fly using the center button as well, meaning no fiddly third-party apps needed.

Overall, the latest version of PowerA thematic collection, Pastel Series, for the Xbox Series X|S Enhanced Wired Controller offers an affordable way to expand your controller collection. Its shape and details are close enough that it doesn’t stand out too much as a third-party controller when displayed next to official offerings. While there are a few design elements that could definitely be tweaked slightly, there were no issues during the long gaming sessions we subjected the controller to – the lovely Pastel Dreams controller was dragged through the hell while we were playing Evil Dead: The Game. Our first impressions are that if you’re looking for a new controller, this is definitely worth your consideration, thanks to how many features you get for your money. Plus, he looks really cool on screen, so he’s a winner either way.

PS5 horror game in the works at an unannounced studio Fri, 20 May 2022 13:38:27 +0000

Trust internet sleuths to uncover things you wouldn’t otherwise notice. ResetEra user Toumari somehow discovered an unannounced studio called Swizzle Kiss that is working on a PS5 horror game. The studio, which appears to have around 10-15 developers (including industry veterans) employed, is not only fully funded, but also a PlayStation partner.

What we know about the mysterious studio and its PS5 horror game

Swizzle Kiss is directed by Alicia Conte, who previously worked on The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe while serving as a director at her development studio Crows Crows Crows. She is joined by Jessica Curry from Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Other names attached to the studio include Arshea Bimal (formerly a producer at Funomena), and Tom Schley and William Pugh, who were both Conte’s colleagues when she worked on The Stanley Parable.

“We are creating a premium single-player narrative horror game for PlayStation 5 + PC,” reads the job description for a lead programmer. “We are fully funded and partners of Sony PlayStation.”

Swizzle Kiss doesn’t have much of an internet presence as it’s still unannounced, but from what we’ve gathered, they are headquartered in Berlin, Germany. The studio has expressed a preference for applicants who have shipped games on PlayStation.

Last but not least, Gematsu’s Sal Romano found the above image in a code on the webpage that advertises the aforementioned work, but it might not be related to the game. Fans have speculated that the game d PS5 horror is said to be a sort of indie rather than a full-fledged AAA experience, but Sony has partnered with a number of indie studios that work on AAA games, so you never know.

In other news, it looks like some PS1 classics in the new PS Plus will support trophies, and the Assassin’s Creed Origins 60fps PS5 patch could drop next week.

Xbox sells PlayStation in Japan for the first time since 2014 Thu, 19 May 2022 19:40:51 +0000

Sales in Japan for the Xbox Series S last week surpassed those of the PlayStation 5, making it the first time an Xbox console has sold more than a PlayStation in any given week since 2014.

According to Famitsu, during the week of May 9-15, the Xbox Series S console sold 6,120 units. Sales of the PlayStation 5 disc version and the Digital Edition consoles were 2,240 and 493 units respectively, for a combined total of 2,693 units.

This specific incident is probably due to the low supply of PlayStation 5 consoles while the supply of Xbox Series S is more abundant. Last year, Sony reportedly told analysts that shortages for its latest console would continue until 2022.

The last time a similar situation occurred was when the Xbox One was first released in Japan in 2014, with 23,562 units sold in its launch week, compared to 6,373 console units. PlayStation 4s sold during the same period.

The Xbox brand is not as popular overseas in Japan as its local competitors PlayStation and Nintendo. At the very least, Xbox Series X|S sales have already surpassed Xbox One lifetime sales in Japan. Microsoft understands that the Japanese market, as well as the wider Asian area, is important and says that Xbox is seeing phenomenal growth there.

While Xbox still has work to do in Japan, it has a Japanese studio in its proprietary portfolio: Tango Gameworks. The studio recently released Ghostwire: Tokyo, but it’s currently a timed console exclusive to PlayStation 5 and is set to launch next year on Microsoft platforms.

Xbox reputation suffers after Starfield and Redfall delays Wed, 18 May 2022 18:15:00 +0000

An astronaut gazes into the distance in Starfield, one of the big Xbox games slated for 2022 that has been delayed to 2023.

Picture: Bethesda

Driving the video game fandom bus should come with a seat belt warning. To wit: Last month, it seemed like everyone was losing their minds with Microsoft gobbling up half the industry. Now, following some major delays, it’s all “Dead console!!!” this and “Xbox has no exclusives!!!” that. I hope you have buckled up!

There is, to be fair, precedent for watchers to worry about Xbox’s next slate. Throughout the Xbox One’s lifecycle, gamers have (rightly) criticized the platform for having few lightning rod exclusives, especially during its initial launch window. But over the past few years, Microsoft has seen a wave of acquisitions, swelling the ranks of its first-party studios as one console generation dwindled and another began.

By the November 2020 launch of Xbox Series X/S, nearly two dozen studios were under the umbrella of the first part of Xbox. Last March, approved regulators Microsoft’s then-seismic $7.5 billion acquisition of ZeniMax, Bethesda’s parent company and the grandfather (yes, that’s a technical term; no, don’t check it) of a number other prestigious studios, including Arkane, the makers of Dishonored. Then, the big one: In January, Microsoft has declared its intention to buy Activision Blizzard, despite his well-publicized misfortunesfor the price of the defense budget of a European nation.

In the immediate aftermath of the deal, which has been approved by Activision shareholders, who are expected to earn a groundbut still needs the green light from regulators– a lot of attention was paid to the number of studios acquired by Microsoft. Game influencers shared out of breath splash infographic on how many legacy franchises were now technically first-party Xbox games, the implication being that Xbox had the strongest lineup of exclusives. outlets like The edge and The Guardian published trending articles questioning whether or not Microsoft was monopolizing the games industry.

But the tides have turned. Last week, Bethesda announced that would delay star fieldits massive space RPG which was slated for release on November 11, 2022. In the same breath, the company also said it was pushing back on Arkane’s vampire shooter, red fall, originally slated for a summer release. Both are now slated for an undetermined date in the “first half” of 2023, essentially leaving Microsoft’s fall slate — historically the busiest time of the year — devoid of any exclusivity.

“Shit”, the Twitch streamer KidSmoovewhose biography notes that “Xbox is the best box,” said on Twitter. Some people pointy fingers at the head of Xbox Phil Spencer. Others called him a “bad look”, a “public relations nightmare” and used the word “sucks” a lot. Even social media users with accounts named after Xbox – gamers who have come to be pejoratively known as “Xbots” –expressed disappointment.

Observers have pointed to this sea change across the Internet’s preferred form of communication: memes.

A Twitter user's meme captures fans' shifting sentiment towards Xbox.

Since the days of the Xbox One, public opinion about Microsoft has swung like a pendulum; so far this generation, the company has accumulated a source of goodwill. The Xbox Series X/S was a head and shoulders improvement on the Xbox One, and has only gotten better since launch, thanks to a steady wave of updates and quality improvements. life. Last fall, the console release schedule was anchored by Infinite Halo and Forza Horizon 5, two highly anticipated new entries in the acclaimed Xbox series. (Both series records broken.) And that’s to say nothing of Microsoft’s hugely popular on-demand games service, Xbox Game Pass, which regularly adds some of the best games to its rotating library. red fall and star field were highly anticipated additions to Microsoft’s ecosystem, so the joint delay has tarnished that goodwill a bit as a result.

Some fans, however, took the hit in stride. Many recognize that a delayed game is better than another cyberpunkto borrow an expression would have assigned to select Bethesda developers. (That said, there is a feeling there it can basically be summed up as follows: “star field better be amazing, OR OTHERWISE. “) A running joke: Bethesda, instead of having a brand new game for the fall, might just release Skyrim again for the 71st time. (Deserved.) The “Best Bit” award, however, goes to this tongue-in-cheek video from the Twitch streamer TheGladihater:

Kidding aside, it’s not like the Xbox lineup is completely dry this fall. It’s just not as stacked like it was last week. Several Xbox “console exclusives” are planned for this year, including cyberpunk platformer Replacedthe horror game Contemptand the post-apocalyptic shooter STALKER 2. These games don’t have release dates set in ink yet for a host of reasons, not the least of which can be attributed to game development in the midst of a fucking pandemic, but are nonetheless still slated for 2022. (Of course, any of these could be delayed.)

And then there are the unknown variables. Microsoft’s June showcase, which despite the cancellation of E3, still going as planned. It’s unclear what will show up there or what other potential pressers Microsoft has planned for the year. Xbox representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

Jawaharlal Nehru: the first and oldest PM Wed, 18 May 2022 01:46:30 +0000 Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has completed eight years in power, recently hinted that he was ready for a third term. Speaking virtually at a meeting in Bharuch where beneficiaries of various central government programs were gathered, he said a ‘highly placed’ opposition leader once asked him what he had left to accomplish after becoming Prime Minister twice. Modi said he would not rest until “100%” coverage of government programs was achieved in the country.

Modi, 71, is the first PM to be born after independence. Over more than seven decades, the country has seen 15 prime ministers, on a journey marked by social, political and economic change. The Indian Express examines Indian parliamentary democracy through the tenures of its PMs.


Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, remained in office continuously for a total period of almost 17 years after independence. His tenure as prime minister spanning 6,130 days – the longest premiership in the country to date – over multiple terms ended with his disappearance on May 27, 1964 at the age of 74.

After leading the caretaker government in pre-independence India, Nehru became Prime Minister when the country gained independence on August 15, 1947 and led the government ahead of the first general elections held in 1951- 1952.

In the elections for the first Lok Sabha, 14 national parties participated including Indian National Congress (INC), All India Bharatiya Jan Sangh (BJS), Indian Bolshevik Party, Communist Party of India (CPI), Forward Bloc (Marxist Group ), Forward Bloc (Ruikar Group), Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha, Krishikar Lok Party, Kisan Mazdoor Praja Party, Revolutionary Communist Party of India, Akhil Bharatiya Ram Rajya Parishad, Revolutionary Socialist Party, All India Scheduled Caste Federation and Socialist Party. In addition, 39 state parties and 533 independents had also challenged the polls.

Led by Nehru, the Congress party won the election, winning 364 of the total 489 seats for which elections were held. In fact, 3 out of 4 seats in the elections went to Congress.

Of the 14 national parties, 11 entered the Chamber. The three parties which could not win any seats in the first general elections were the Bolshevik Party of India, the Forward Bloc (Ruikar Group) and the Revolutionary Communist Party of India.

The BJS – whose offshoot like the BJP would eventually overwhelm the Congress over the following decades – won only 3 seats, including 2 from West Bengal and 1 from Rajasthan, with its founder Shyama Prasad Mukherjee managing to win his seat in Calcutta South East.

In the first Lok Sabha, the Congress led by Nehru enjoyed a complete majority as there was virtually no opposition. Independents were the second-largest group in the House, whose vote share (7%) and seats (37), excluding Congress, outnumbered each of the remaining 13 national parties as well as the 39 state parties. Indeed, besides the Congress, only two national parties – the CPI (16 seats) and the Socialist Party (12) – could reach double digits.

In the second general election of 1957, four national parties—the INS, BJS, CPI, and Praja Socialist Party (PSP)—and 11 state parties contested. Nehru again led the Congress to a landslide victory, with the party winning 371 of the Lok Sabha’s 494 seats. The other three national parties also improved their tally – the CPI won 27, the PSP 19 and the BJS 4. The combined number of seats won by the party states stood at 31. However, like the first Lok Sabha, this time also the Independent’s candidate tally of 42 seats as a bloc was second only to Congress. In the second Lok Sabha, Nehru again did not face strong opposition.

Elections to the third Lok Sabha in 1962 were Nehru’s last national election before his death. During this election, 6 national parties – INC, CPI, BJS, PSP, Socialist (SOC) and Swatantra (SWA) – 11 recognized parties and 10 unrecognized parties presented their candidates.

Congress also swept third Lok Sabha polls, winning 361 of the total 494 seats, although the party’s tally was down slightly from its figure in previous elections. Other national parties, including the CPI (29 seats), BJS (14), PSP (12), SOC (6) and SWA (18), also improved their tally. In this election, the number of independent winners also fell to 20 from 42 in the previous House.

In the first general elections, Nehru contested and won the constituency of Allahabad district (east) and Jaunpur district (west). In the second and third Lok Sabha polls, he won from the seat of Phulpur. In the 1962 elections, Nehru defeated Ram Manohar Lohia, a socialist stalwart, by a margin of 64,571 votes.

Arma 4 announced; Should be coming to Xbox and PlayStation Tue, 17 May 2022 18:23:00 +0000

weapon 4 was officially announced, nearly a decade after the last game was released. The Arma series has taken a huge hit on PC thanks to its incredibly realistic gameplay. While there are plenty of immersive military shooters and some solid military sims, Arma takes things to another level with really deep and rich military gameplay and scenarios. Besides being a good game at its core, Arma has supported an amazing modding community that has spawned RP servers, authentic recreations of other IPs like Star Wars, and much more. Needless to say, it has created a strong following by offering itself as a platform for immersion and creativity.

The series will continue as Bohemia Interactive, the developer of the Arma series, has confirmed weapon 4 is in active development. No release date or other really concrete details were provided, but a taste will be offered via another game, Arma Reforge, out today on PC and Xbox Series X|S. Some leaks indicated that all future entries, including weapon 4, will come to both Xbox and PlayStation platforms. At the moment it seems that Reforge is a timed Xbox exclusive, but the developer hasn’t officially confirmed if it will come to PlayStation. Reforge will also serve as the basis for weapon 4allowing the developer to expand on some of their ideas and allowing fan feedback.

Right now it looks like it will be some time before weapon 4 gets some big news, not to mention a release date, but it’s exciting to know it’s coming. In view of the incredible success weapon 3 had, Bohemia has a lot of resources that they can probably invest in the next game. It’s also amazing to hear that the series is coming to consoles, which was thought impossible due to the amount of controls present in the PC game. Only time will tell if it works, but it should be an interesting experiment.

Are you excited for weapon 4? Let me know in the comments below or contact me on Twitter @Cade_Onder.

Final Fantasy XV reaches 10 million units sold worldwide Tue, 17 May 2022 09:30:00 +0000

Final Fantasy XV has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, Square Enix confirmed this morning. The PlayStation 4 JRPG was first released in November 2016 before being repackaged into a Royal Edition some 18 months later, with the latest sales milestone likely split between the two versions. the PS Plus collection also offers a completely free digital copy of Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition, but it’s unclear if downloads through the service count towards the final sales total.

In a tweet, the Official Final Fantasy XV Twitter account thanked everyone for supporting the game. Via Google translate, the message reads: “[Final Fantasy XV] achieved cumulative worldwide sales of 10 million units! Thank you for your support! Thank you for your continued support #FF15!”

If online projections are correct, this makes Final Fantasy XV one of the best-selling entries in the series to date. The PS1 classic Final Fantasy VII is said to have sold in the region of 13 million units, putting it at the top of the sales chart, while Final Fantasy X (original game + HD remasters) and the MMO in Final Fantasy XIV line are both apparently around the 10 million mark as well. In the case of Final Fantasy VII Remake, we know for sure that it had sold over five million copies as of August 2020, making it the “best-selling digital release on the PlayStation platform of the history of Square Enix”.

How do you reflect on Final Fantasy XV all these years later? Is this one of your favorite entries in the franchise or is it better to forget about it? Share your opinion in the comments below.

Xbox Game Pass surprise title announced for May 17 Tue, 17 May 2022 00:33:00 +0000

Xbox Game Pass is adding another game to its library, in addition to the already announced list of titles that will be released in May.

Microsoft Xbox Game Pass was one of the company’s most successful services to launch in recent years. It allows players to experience hundreds of titles ranging from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for Infinite Halo, all at an impressive price. Now, as the service looks to expand its library of games and increase its growing numbers, Xbox Game Pass has announced a surprise title slated to launch this month.

One of the service’s biggest selling points is its regularly updated content library, where the company adds new titles to Xbox Game Pass every month. Recently, Microsoft announced a slate of games for Xbox Game Pass in May. This includes the likes of Little witch in the woods and Umurangi Generation Special Editionn for May 17, while several other titles such as Hardspace: Shipbreaker and Elite Sniper 5 are scheduled for the end of the month. The latest announcement of upcoming games adds to an already exciting list for Xbox Game Pass.

In an update on its social media channels, the service announced that players should expect Frontier Developments Jurassic World: Evolution 2 to hit Xbox Game Pass on May 17. The sequel improves on the first Jurassic World: Evolution, where players build their own Jurassic Park with a variety of dinosaurs, environments, tools, and a host of other engaging content. As of now, the game is available on PC as well as previous and current generation consoles.

Although little hype followed the launch of Xbox Game Pass in 2017, its appeal has grown significantly over the years and today the service is considered a staple for many gamers. While much of that comes down to its rich library, Game Pass’s success also stems from other offerings such as cloud gaming and the release of first-party Xbox titles to Game Pass on launch day. Now, with the upcoming Xbox and Bethesda games showcase, expectations for Xbox Game Pass continue to grow among fans.

But Xbox’s success hasn’t gone unnoticed. In fact, other industry players are already stepping up their subscription service efforts, including Sony. The company announced its own version of Game Pass a few months ago, and recently Ubisoft+ became available for PlayStation Plus and Premium members. Although time will tell how the competition will play out for gaming subscription services in the future. Regardless, Jurassic World: Evolution 2 on Xbox Game Pass promises to pique the interest of jurassic park fans, especially in the context of June Jurassic World Dominion film.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Range Rovers Sports 2 Park Regis Neo 2 (Sports in 3-2 on penalties) Mon, 16 May 2022 09:00:00 +0000

Goalkeeper Olly Dewey was the penalty shootout hero as Range Rovers Sports beat league rivals Park Regis Neo to win the Kent Sunday Junior Cup.

A thrilling game in Chatham Town between the two top teams in the Sheppey Sunday League ended 2-2 after extra time and ended in a penalty shootout, with Sports winning 3-2.

Sunday’s game was still likely to be a close contest between two sides who have met in three cup finals domestically and are due to meet again at the end of this month to decide the league winners .

It was the first time in Sheppey Sunday league history that two of their clubs had met in the Kent Cup final.

Manager Fred Fayers had previously taken the team to the semi-finals but Covid denied them a chance at glory.

“We were really good that day,” he said. “Every game was close and winning it on penalties makes it that little bit more special.

“We still want to win the Kent Cup, it’s the third time (as a club) we’ve won it, obviously because of our league we can’t play as a senior, but the county cup is the pinnacle for all. Sunday League football and we are really happy to have won it.

Two goals from striker Harry Goodger overturned a one-goal deficit before Neo fought back to lead it on penalties, where Dewey made two saves to win it.

Of striker Goodger, Fayers said: “He’s been exceptional for us, he’s showing his experience, isn’t he? He’s so good in the air, he’s huge for us, but they all buy into it, they’re a special group of boys in the locker room.

“We have two exceptional goalkeepers and Olly was in goal (on Sunday) and he was brilliant. The last stop was amazing, I don’t know how he saved that. He got the man of the match and deserved it for that, he was exceptional.

“It was a good final. They (Neo) are a young team, they have a very good team, they want to play football in the right way and so do we and it always makes for a good game. I’m sure we will have many more fights with them in the future.

Sports are three points clear of Neo in Division 1 of the Sheppey Sunday League with one game to play when the two sides meet on May 29. Neo’s superior goal difference means if they win, they take the title.

Fayers said: “As long as we don’t lose we will win the league but as you can see we will have another tough game and it could go either way. Hopefully we can get the better of them.

Since Neo’s promotion to the Sheppey Sunday League Premier Division last year, the two teams have become rivals for cup and league honours.

Ahead of the County final, they had met the previous week in the League Cup final, with a Goodger goal breaking that tie in favor of Sports, winning 1-0.

Neo had won the Senior Charity Cup with a 5-4 win over Sports as well as the Senior Cup with a 4-3 win. Their previous league match ended 3-3.

Once again, it was a tight encounter and it was not short of incidents.

Range Rovers had the best of early chances, but energetic midfielder Frank Phipps took his place with a 20th-minute free-kick to put Neo ahead.

Dan Organ could have made it two after beating the offside trap but Dewey saved well.

Rovers’ Danny Walder hit the woodwork from the edge of the box midway through half and with 33 minutes left Goodger equalized as he converted from Walder’s corner.

Neo threatened again before the break with Organ shooting just over the bar and an overhead kick from Harry Taylor coming close. Dylan Riches put an effort into the side netting at the other end as half time drew to a close.

Both teams had played some decent stuff and the chances continued after the break. Goodger was happy to help his side at the back while Walder still remained a threat, slamming the goal frame one o’clock from a deep free kick.

There were some robust challenges throughout that kept referee Gavin Farrington on his toes and he wasn’t afraid to use his yellow card to mark his authority. It was only at the very end of the match that the spirits really overflowed.

In the 63rd minute, Goodger grabbed his second, converting a Tom Mills cross to score from close range.

Neo responded and was back level 15 minutes later when their captain Shane Sandy peeked home on Taylor’s flag shot.

Neither team seemed happy with the looming extra time as both aimed for a winner.

Phipps had a header spun over the bar by Dewey while Organ fired wide.

In stoppage time, Range Rovers’ Dano Cummins had a chance for glory, with Joe Sands on the start, but he delayed the shot and Reece Heasman saved well.

The roll-on roll-off substitution rule was used by both teams as the game went into extra time, allowing Goodger and Tom Carlton to take a well-deserved break.

In the first half of extra time, Phipps put up a good chance for Neo while their defenders put bodies behind the ball to keep Sports’ Cummins out.

Just at the end of extra time, a rapprochement between Goodger and Charlie Taylor led to an altercation involving players, substitutes and coaches, resulting in the expulsion of one of Neo’s executives. Both teams managed to go to the end with 11 players and penalties were needed to settle what had been a thrilling contest.

Dewey couldn’t prevent the first two Neo penalties but watched the third sail over the bar and he then saved well from Organe and superbly denied James Rogers to win the contest, despite Heasman doing a good save to avoid Goodger’s penalty before that. .
