Behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

If you asked me what game I'm most looking forward to this summer, it would have to be Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. The game has so many cool things going for it, as you get to use the Force in ways never even heard of in the Star Wars universe. Just the thought of playing as Darth Vader's secret apprentice brings back the kind of excitement I haven't felt for a Star Wars title since SOE ruined Galaxies. Anyway, hit the jump for an awesome video that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the physics engines behind the game.

Thus I spent most of my waking hours playing Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64, Zelda and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. Turok is one of those games that I really didn't expect to enjoy, and thus surprised me. Unfortunately the sequels haven't quite filled me with the same experience as the original. I'm hoping that the latest installment doesn't disappoint like the previous title.

Strange Vibrating Bag brings the rumble to your SIXAXIS

I'm pretty sure that if you've saved up the cash to buy yourself a PS3 then you're going to want the whole experience, and thus you'll want a DualShock SIXAXIS controller. However, if you don't feel like ponying up another $70 just to get that rumbling sensation (which should have been in all of the controllers to begin with) you have another option. Albeit a strange one.

Circuit City reveals Cobalt Blue Nintendo DS Lite

Circuit City reveals Cobalt Blue Nintendo DS Lite

I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo changed their motto for the DS to “Gotta Catch 'Em All.” While it's always cool to see some of my favorite gadgets in a multitude of colors, I'm beginning to wonder how long Nintendo is going to stretch out the release of all of these colors. The latest rumor is that we'll be seeing a Cobalt Blue/Black DS Lite sometime in the near future.
