R2-D2 Architectural Desk Lamp is a droid for your studies

When the time rolls around to finish up some work or hit the books, you head to your desk, only something feels off. Your desk seems a bit too generic, a little too all-business-and-no-play.

Hot Toys has a life-size First Order Stormtrooper figure

Hot Toys has a new First Order Stormtrooper, and it's life-sized. The model is a tad over 70-inches high (sans the base, which adds another 8-inches), and is designed to look just like a stormtrooper from The Force Awakens, being the latest entrant in the Life-Size Masterpieces Series. Sideshow Toys says the figure is “meticulously sculpted,” and it includes a blaster in its hands. Sound like an awesome addition for the living room? You may think again when you see the price tag.

Nintendo 64’s Rogue Squadron lands on Steam

Nintendo 64’s Rogue Squadron lands on Steam

The release of the Nintendo 64 was probably one of my favorite periods of console gaming. I was never bored with the console, as there were just so many different titles to play, that kept my interest. One such classic was Rogue Squadron. Sure, it was no X-Wing or TIE Fighter, like I had for my PC, but it was so much more advanced than either of those games. And now it's finally made its way to Steam.

Anyone who has seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens knows that there are a lot of similarities between it and A New Hope.

Hands-on with Star Wars: The Trials on Tattooine

Hands-on with Star Wars: The Trials on Tattooine

Something I've wanted to do since I was a little kid was grab a lightsaber and fight bad guys with it. So when I was told that I'd be seeing a demo from ILMxLAB during GDC, you can be that I was pretty excited. After strapping on an HTC Vive and getting my controller ready (after being told I'd only need the one controller, I was pretty certain of what I'd need it for) the familiar text popped up: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Well today we have in-game footage of this project.

If you have any interest in the movie, you've probably gone to see The Force Awakens by now. If you haven't, perhaps you're just waiting for it to release on Blu-ray.
