Zor Prime tipped us off about the first print advertisement for EA Replay. The game is featured on page 12 of the November 5 Best Buy circular. Text next to the box says "NEW," which suggests that the ad was designed when the game was scheduled for an earlier release. Best Buy's website has added a product listing with an updated release date of November 16. This is in line with their typical practice of adding two days to the ship date for medium size titles like Replay. It's getting closer!
Starshatter: The Gathering Storm is an enhanced release of the original Starshatter. The game has been bolstered with upgraded engine graphics, music, animations and more. Players have the choice of becoming either a fighter pilot or small capship commander, and the size, strength and number of ships under their command grows throughout the game. Smaller craft can fight both in space or planetary atmospheres, and numerous different control schemes and physics models have been implemented to provide different methods of flight control. Parts of the game are comparable to light RTS titles due to the large scale nature of fleet combat, and the game tries to integrate fighter and starship combat throughout. Another cool feature is support for the NaturalPoint Head Tracker that syncs your onscreen view with the direction your head is pointed during flight. Starshatter TGS has gone gold and should be available by the end of the year.
