“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.

forceunleashed.jpgWe’ve been waiting for this for a long time. IN fact almost since the day the Wii launched fans have been begging for the ultimate Star Wars experience on the Wii.

We now know when it’s coming: Spring 2008.

That’s when The Force Unleashed hits the Wii with an exclusive dual mode option that will let you wield your Wiimote the way it was intended – as a lightsaber!!!!

“The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console’s motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life,” said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts in a statement. “We’ve worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force.”

The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master.

If you didn’t have a reason for owning a Wii before – now you do.

First there was a PS2 game which wasn’t too bad at all ..then there was the unofficial (but really great) Beyond the Red Line Game.

Now it looks like a small Battlestar Galactica game is coming the XBOX360 – but don’t worry about having to rush out to your local retailer to buy it..it’s so dinky you’ll just be able to download it from the Live Arcade.

Sign up to defend the Galactica, or play as the ruthless Cylons as they seek to remove the human menace from existence. Take part in enormous multiplayer space battles – up to 8 players online – or play through the single-player campaign.

Overall if early reports are to be believed – it could be a pretty decent arcade shooter.

Stargate The Alliance video game cancelled but is it truly dead? June 4, 2007

Two years ago there was alot of hype around a new Stargate video game called Stargate The Alliance.

It never saw the light of day because MGM saw to it that it  never would.

But fans being fans – there is a petition online calling for its return..but in a new twist in this conspiracy the petition itself is now closed, even though there are over 26,000 people that ‘signed’ the petition.

With Stargate Worlds apparently still in production..who is to say that MGM won’t find a way to kill that game too..

That being the case..the code for Stargate The Alliance is out there and just like the fans that are working on restoring the KOTOR the Sith Lords..hey you never know the game might well yet emerge..

Lucas Arts has confirmed that Star Wars Lego – The Complete Saga will be available for the Wii this fall.Star Wars Lego could well be the first Star Wars game for the Wii and it will be interesting to see how far Lucas Arts goes to actually support the Wiimote and the Numchuck.

No this won’t be Star Wars The Force Unleashed but hey..the Wii may make this real interesting.

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.

Star Wars on the Nintendo Wii February 7, 2007

Star Wars video games have long been a hit and miss exercise. From the highs of Knights of the Old Republic to crap like Jedi Power Battles. Star Wars video games for next generation consoles may well be a real hit, especially on the Wii.

On the Nintendo Wii you can literally stretch out with your feelings (or WiiMote/Nunchuk) and strike down your enemy.

Don’t believe me? Check out this vid of Star Wars on the Wii. It’ll blow you away. I can hardly wait.
