Star Wars: The Old Republic game launches today

Star Wars: The Old Republic is launching today and is one of the coolest MMORPG games I have seen in a long time. Any Star Wars fan will want to check this game out. The game launches officially today and last night many gamers around the world lined up to be among the first to get their hands on the game. Anything Star Wars related often means that geeks will be dressed up and apparently, that happened last night in major cities like NYC, Paris, London, and Austin.

UD Replicas Stormtrooper Motorcycle Suit takes fandom to a new level

Automotive is a rather quick growing category on not only our tech blog but the whole internet world's tech radar - and with products like this Stormtrooper Motorcycle Suit made of leather by UD Replicas for the real-life wearing and crashing in of bike riders everywhere, it's not tough to see why! What you're looking at here is two options for the Star Wars and moto-bike lover in your life, one classic white-shelled "Imperial white" stormtrooper and one black Shadow Trooper full set of grade-A cowhide leather. You won't find a fold out of place nor a detail undone here, folks, and you'll certainly be safer on your bike than a "real" stormtrooper is in the blaster pistol smoke.

Get Star Wars: The Old Republic access 5 days early: here’s how

Another gigantic game is on the horizon and set for the last month of this year, that being Star Wars: The Old Republic, and news today surrounds those who have already pre-ordered the game for early arrival, those people so dedicated to Star Wars, that is, that they'd have a heart attack over the idea that they'd be amongst the first to start exploring the universe for their very own in this new MMORPG. Creators of the massively multiplayer online role playing game SW:TOR have let known already that pre-ordering players will get to start the game earlier than the rest of the population starting December 20th, 2011, what they haven't let known until now is how long that early access will last.

First Star Wars 3D trailer released [Video]

First Star Wars 3D trailer released [Video]

For those of you not following along with every tiny movement of George Lucas and his never-ending stream of ideas on how to re-present his film collection, it may come as a surprise to you that Star Wars will be re-released in 3D format in theaters starting in 2012 - today's trailer being final proof. It started as a rumor after George himself hinted at a release of the films in a 3D format after having first seen AVATAR in 3D, saying that the technology had finally caught up with his vision for a 3D presentation of the saga. Now we've got the first 3D trailer for a big-screen release.

Google says Siri like Star Wars, Android more like Star Trek

Google says Siri like Star Wars, Android more like Star Trek

While the rest of the world was running around crashing its head into a wall in excitement over the just-revealed Galaxy Nexus and finalized Ice Cream Sandwich from Google, we had a sit-down with several Android authorities, one of whom, Matias Duarte to be exact, had a rather interesting take on the difference between voice controls in Android and Apple's Siri. As you well know, one of the biggest features on the newest set of Apple mobile hardware and software is Siri, a voice-controlled assistant, where Android still totes several voice-activated features across the board. What we heard from Duarte in Hong Kong was that he's thought long and hard about this situation and has come up with the nerdiest explanation of all.

Star Wars The Old Republic now set for global simultaneous launch

Star Wars The Old Republic now set for global simultaneous launch

It's time for the newest and hopefully last date change for the release of the Star Wars MMORPG - The Old Republic. This is a game that, for the lay person, will be comparable to World of Warcraft in its scope, allowing players to create their own character with whom they'll be able to experience the entire Star Wars universe as it unfolds before them. Have battles, accomplish missions, swing some lightsabers around, the whole shebang. The newest word on this upcoming game is that there will be a global launch - with North America and the European territories on the list thus far and no sign of greater Asia - on December 20th, 2011.

Xbox 360 branded harddrive a maniacal deal

Xbox 360 branded harddrive a maniacal deal

And what are those Star Wars characters doing there in the picture? Let me tell you, ladies and gentlemen - the cost and the characters have to do with one another, but they certainly don't seem to be equalling out. First, you may have seen this harddrive before - the same device comes in packs with Gears of War 3 and Modern Warfare 3, amongst others. Those of you who want to get the harddrive by itself will have to pay a penny that's much more pretty than you could have ever imagined: $130 USD. Not quite the droids we were looking for.

Lightsaber tie tacks keep your tie in place

Lightsaber tie tacks keep your tie in place

If you are the geek sort that works in an environment where you have to wear pants and dress up with a tie, I am sorry for you. At least you can show how geeky you are with these wild tie tacks. The things look like little metal lightsabers. They are made of cast brass, but they look like pewter to me. I think the Sith Lord might have worn this to his Senate meetings.

ThinkGeek Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick lands in December

There are more Star Wars branded products out there than you can shake a stick at making many fans of the franchise angry that George Lucas pimps out our childhood memories to just about anyone. The place that makes some of the coolest licensed gear is ThinkGeek and I have yet to be disappointed by stuff that it offers. ThinkGeek has a new Star Wars item that is called the Star Wars Lightsaber Candlestick.

Star Wars Old Republic global support base opened in Ireland

Star Wars Old Republic global support base opened in Ireland

Of all the places in the world to open a support facility, it had to be Ireland that took on the task of providing support to masses for the new Star Wars MMORPG game The Old Republic as it ramps up for launch on December 20th and 22nd. Of course I and we have no reason to be saying such a thing, in fact such an island base will likely be the greatest place to avoid the craziest of game players that'll more than likely try to swim to the support group in hopes of getting their lightsaber license re-activated after having chopped up too many ewoks. You following me? If you are, this is definitely going to be the game for you.
