Demo Report – Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

The demo for The Force Unleashed II is in the wild, and I have distilled its thundering contents into a collection of words arranged into a string of paragraphs for easy assimilation. If you are already familiar with forces and the task of unleashing them, you may wonder: have they unbroken it?

The answer is a resounding maybe.

Check Your Enthusiam – When Star Wars Meets Kinect

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , — Jamie Love @ 4:45 pm

Kinect Star Wars
I guess anytime you want to create excitement for a piece of gaming hardware, you could still drag the Star Wars license into it. Okay maybe I don’t entirely believe that, but it did help get me to buy a Gamecube back in the day.

As for the bit of Star Wars Microsoft had to show at their Press Conference today, ideally to demonstrate a harder core of game for Kinect…

Keep in mind people always tell me that this or that might be early in development, and certainly that’s true. But it’s also true that you bring the best you have to an event such as this, and this video has bizarrely taken me back to the days of Rebel Assault, and offers up a short battle that looks as if storm troopers are playing laser ping pong.

Take it with a grain of salt I suppose, either way I think it’s kinda hilarious to watch, after the break.

Star Wars: The Old Republic
Back at E3 2009, Bioware’s cinematic glimpse into The Old Republic stole plenty of attention, almost entirely by offering fans hope that the franchise could regain some cred after years of abuse. This year is no different, except that the latest cinematic take on the game might put expectations through the roof.

Catch over five minutes of what is undoubtedly the only Star Wars game you need to care about this week, after the break.

UPDATE – EA went and yanked the video, see, I’ve been telling you those guys are no fun for years and there’s more proof :/
UPDATE 2 – Video is Back
