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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
