Top Gun is Coming to the European PlayStation Store

50°
225w ago - A few weeks back Top Gun arrived on the US PSN store, and today Senior Games Designer Ollie Barder at Doublesix has confirmed it's also on the way to the European PlayStation Store on September 8, 2010.

To quote: The studio has been really busy with Top Gun - a new air combat game for the PlayStation Network based on the classic 80′s film.

Needless to say it's been a lot of fun making this, as screeching across a blue sky in a F-14 Tomcat never gets old.

For those curious as to how we've tackled the game we went down a more arcade focused route for air combat, more so than other games in the genre. So instead of having to micromanage finite ammunition, stalling and the vagaries of an overly complex flight model, we've streamlined all that down and removed as many restrictions as we possibly could.

The reasoning behind this was so that the player would be able to focus on just enjoying the combat and shooting down planes with either guns or missiles. This means things like your health replenishes over time and your guns won't ever overheat. We wanted to give people the freedom to fly through a blue sky and basically get to feel like a fighter ace.
 

European PlayStation Store Updates for September 1, 2010

225w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with this weeks European PSN update today, as follows:

Alien Breed: Impact hits the EU PSN this week. An HD remake of the awesome Amiga classic, 'Alien Breed' (what do you mean, "What's an Amiga?") you and a friend can take on hordes of nasty space critters locally or online, in an effort to get from point A to point B for some reason or another.

Still, it's the journey that matters, not the destination, which is especially true when you have LASERS on the journey and are wading through piles of fresh alien corpses. Make sure you grab the free trial and try it for yourselves.

In other news, Sam and Max conclude their journey into the Devil's Playhouse this week - you can grab the final episode when we update, or if you're a Plus subscriber, grab yourself the whole Season.

The previously Plus-only demo of Ubisoft's R.U.S.E. hits for the rest of you today - command your army and deceive the enemy before nuking them into the stone age. If real-time strategy isn't your cup of tea, SEGA's Vanquish is on display for you to wrap your controllers around.

What better way to spend your time than blasting malevolent robots into a bajillion pieces from the comfort of an incredibly powerful...

First up, we've got Shank, ultra-violent, ultra-stylish and ultra-fun. Carve your way to victory through a veritable army of shady looking villains, on your own or with a local co-op partner - Mike and I have given it a whirl and it comes highly recommended.

Don't believe us? Well, give it a bash with the free trial and see for yourself. We've also got the new Trial and Unlock version of Joe Danger for everyone who wasn't sure whether or not an awesome stunt-based motocross game where you can create your own stunt-runs and rack up massive points multipliers would be fun... yeah, it is.

All those without Plus can get their hands on PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap today and if you're an early adopter and have yourself one of them there swanky 3D televisualising boxes you can pick up MotorStorm 3D Rift - ten of the choicest tracks from Pacific Rift bundled together and brought to you in three glorious dimensions at a budget price.

Are you a MAG player? We're bringing you the MAG Persistent Beta client this week - but remember this will only run if you've got your MAG disc in the PS3. Keep your eye on the MAG forums, connect to the Beta server...
