Here's a quick peek at some of the latest game demos on AusGamers Files.

Supreme Commander (1.1GB!): Developed by Chris Taylor, creator of Total Annihilation, the RTS that defined a genre, Supreme Commander offers a unique storyline, innovative gameplay and infinite multiplayer battles online. Grab it here from Internode if you prefer. There's a gargantuan thread about this long-anticipated game here.

Battlestations: Midway Multiplayer (598MB): Battlestations: Midway is a real-time 3D tactical/strategy game that adapts the naval battles of the Second World War. It introduces how the naval warfare changed during WW2 - from the dreadnaughts protecting the memory of Battle of Jutland to the forerunners of modern carriers.

Inferno (487MB): "Infernal" tells the story of Ryan Lennox with a terrific tempo. You're a top intelligence agent, but also a devil straight from hell. You use the latest hitech gadgets, hack computers, fight hand-to-hand or provide cover fire. And when all this becomes insufficient, let yourself use your supernatural infernal powers.

Steel Fury Alpha (214MB): Events in the game are based on the offensive operation, conducted by the Red Army from May 12 to 28, 1942. In the course of German counterattack, begun 17 May 1942, three Soviet Armies were surrounded and forced through fierce fighting to leave from the "meat grinder" of the "Barvenkovskiy Kotel".

UFO: Afterlight (442MB): UFO: Afterlight is a mixture of squad based tactical action and global strategy with the gamer controlling the actions of elite ground troops, and the running and construction of an intricate network of interlinking bases while collecting resources.

Europa Universalis 3 (132MB): Europa Universalis III delves deeply into the areas of exploration, trade, warfare and diplomacy.

Sam and Max Episode 2: Situation Comedy (73MB): Talk show host Myra Stump has gone berzerk! Sam & Max head down to the WARP TV studio to find out why she's holding her audience hostage. But getting onto Myra's stage isn't going to be easy. First the Freelance Police will have to prove they're worthy of fifteen minutes of fame.

Stronghold 2 (253MB): The demo allows you to play one campaign, which is spread across three missions. This should give you a taste of the game. The demo also contains a tutorial which we recommend playing first, especially if you are new to Stronghold games. It isn't too long and explains the game's main concepts.

Xpand Rally (348MB): This single player demo features three tracks, set in Nevada, Poland and Kenya, with arcade and simulation modes and two different cars to choose from. Winning races allows the player to buy enhanced parts, such as super nitro, v-tech chip and many more to make his car even more powerful.

Live for Speed S2 v0.5V (117MB): UPDATES in v0.5V: Sound : Improved car engine and other sounds, added gear whine etc. One extra car sound is now played (now 5 including your own car). Sound now plays at low speed, if replay at 0.5 or 0.25 speed. Skid / scrape sounds are now bounded to reasonable level. Now generated at 100 Hz resolution - same as physics.

Armed Assault (886MB): ArmA is a first person tactical military shooter with large elements of realism and simulation. This game features a blend of large-scale military conflict spread over large areas alongside the more closed quarters battle. The player will find himself thrust in the midst of an engaging and expanding storyline, fighting against smart, aggressive enemies who will continually provide a challenge over a massive landscape.
