“No Jedi in history has ever used the force the way that the secret apprentice uses the force …he’s a force wrecking ball. He’s unstoppable

– Sam Witwer LucasArts

Star Wars The Force Unleashed is the next BIG game from LucasArts (and its coming for the Wii too).

In a recent production video (linked below), LucasArt big wigs give some color on the characters in the game.

The big five characters:

The secret apprentice that’s the character you play in the game

Juno Eclipse – she’s the love interest and is an imperial pilot that ferries the appretice around the galaxy

General Koda – a hardboiled Jedi Master

Proxy – the droid sidekick

Darth Vader

In the video, the game’s production lead describes the Secret Apprentice as a Dark Luke Skywalker – what Luke would have been like had he joined Vader.

Farscape is coming Back!!

No it’s not going to be a sequel to The PeaceKeeper Wars – how would you do a sequel to that anyways?

Apparently the new Farscape series will be an online only thing with a series of web based short episodes that will appear on SCIFI.COM’s SCI FI Pulse broadband network.

So far SCI FI has ordered 10 webisodes of Farscape, to be produced by Brian Henson and Robert Halmi Jr. and produced by The Jim Henson Co., in association with RHI Entertainment.

The only details on the show available so far are that it will somehow ‘expand the Farscape universe’. Beyond that no word on when the show will appear or who will appear in it.

Considering that both Ben Browder and Claudia Black are now available again since SG-1 is mostly done and neither of them will be full time regulars on Stargate Atlantis..we might see them again too..

forceunleashed.jpgNo it’s not KOTOR III. But yes it is the next greatest thing to happen to Star Wars Gaming.

LucasArts has announced a November shipping date for Star Wars The Force Unleashed which should be available for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PSP. It is unclear whether a Wii version is in the cards.

LucasArts is claiming that the new game will introduce all kinds of new gaming innovations – as well as a new playable dark lord wannabe.

The Star Wars saga continues this November in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi – and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.
