[ # ] New Hurling Computer Game 
June 13th, 2007

A new hurling managment computer game is about to be launched by a company called Tailteann Games. The game, called “Bainisteoir – Hurling©”, is due for release on June 28th.

One of the most impressive aspects of it is that they have the real life player names - according to their website they have ” the 32 Irish Inter-County, New York and London Senior Hurling panels, which comprise of over 1,000 real-life Hurling stars, including D.J Carey, Ken McGrath, Brian Lohan and Eugene Cloonan”. This is one aspect that seriously let down the other GAA offering out there, Gaelic Football on the Playstation, it didn’t have any real players.

The company is apparently based in Nenagh in Tipperary, it’s great to see a local Irish software company producing a quality GAA product. Their website seems to be still under development but they have background on themselves and the product on their “About” page. http://tailteanngames.com/2.about.php

I hope this is a good game, and fair play to them for trying. Hope it goes well for them.

Nice to see this as the featured player as well, and they Nenagh men and all :D Not sure about the socks though!

Anyone try it yet? Fair play for them making it hurling, you'd think football would have the bigger audience.

Had a go at this this evening.  Seems quite good, I'm finding the training hard enough to handle though.  I done a good bit of stamina training early on but now I'm way behind in other areas and my overall for the Galway team has fallen from 100 to 75 and Ive only played three challange games.  I hammered Longford and Derry before losing to the Cats by four points despite leading by five at one point.  As my overall rating continues to fall this season may not be a good first season for me, as I struggle to figure out this training.

Hows everyone else finding the game?

Hoping to pick this up tommorow, I am a Football man but like the old management games, worth the buy? What would you rate it?

Ya so far I'd say its worth the buy.  I love the way the matches are done, commentry style just like Football/Champ Manager.  I'm struggling at the training part of the game, but I'm hoping to get the hang of that.  I cant rate the game properly though until I get a better chance to play the game though.

I've heard lots of bad things about Vista, but typically that error just refers to corrupt data.
Check whether the disc is scratched, it shouldn't be as it's new, but try giving it a polish.
Try the disc in another drive and see if the same thing happens. If it does, then take it back to the store and ask for a new disc.

No sign of availability of bainisteoir for download yet. Us abroad will have to wait a while.
