Sega Thursday announced a new console game for RTS fans, from the same studio that developed the Total War series.

Sega Thursday announced a new console game for RTS fans, from the same studio that developed the Total War series.

"Stormrise has been built from the ground up specifically for high def consoles to provide a more intense, frenetic style," said marketing director Gary Knight, upon announcing the game. "Coupled with an all new control mechanic, it will revolutionize the way RTS games are played."

According to Sega, Stormrise promises infantry control "from the front line, instead of the traditional way of controlling the units from a detached view point." Additionally, units can be commanded in the air, on dangerously high rooftops (fingers crossed), and even underground.

If you like real-time strategy games, notably the Total War series, and own either an Xbox 360 or PS3, then you might want to put this title on your radar.

Stormrise is scheduled for release sometime in 2009.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
