24w ago - Eiconic Games Art and Creative Director Simon Credland shared a video today announcing that Total Recoil is setting its sights on PlayStation Vita consoles.
To quote: Atten-tion recruits! This is an intel report from Si at indie developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We're glad to report that Total Recoil is making its way to PS Vita on July 9.
Download it and enjoy an explosion of arcade shoot 'em up action. There are only two rules in Total Recoil...
• Shoot everything that moves!
• Shoot everything that doesn't!
It all started when I was "busy" (with my feet up) playing Call of Duty on PS3, thinking to myself "These shoot-em-ups have come a long way since the old arcade games." So this started me wondering how a modern game would look on an arcade cabinet.
It would be top-down, the characters would have large heads, there would be wave after wave of baddies with flamethrowers, huge tanks and attack copters - and this is what you get with Total Recoil.
But developing on the PS Vita is better than an arcade machine and gives us more control than mobile and tablet games - we've made use of all the PS Vita's controls. You use the left stick to move, the right stick to shoot and strafe. When you fire a missile you can trace its path...

242w ago - Creative Assembly has just announced that next week will see the release of their first major upgrade for the PC title Empire: Total War.
To quote: A number of crash glitches have been "solved", along with audio, save game and assassination fixes.
The AI has been improved in naval combat, and best of all, the AI can now attempt naval invasions of your territory. It is also reported that the upgrade will fix "over 70 bugs".
I have been enjoying Empire: Total War from the very first day it was released, but I am shocked to know that it had over "70 bugs" as I hardly noticed any... however, since they all are about to be fixed there's nothing to worry about.
