Well it’s not quite that easy ..here’s the pitch:

The Electronic Arts (EA) Dead Space team has watched a ton of Horror and Science Fiction films while developing and creating the scariest, most realistic survival/horror game to ever hit the streets, and now they want to pass their collection on to you!  By registering below for the Dead Space Newsletter, you will be entered to win a hundred DVDs, hand picked by members of the Dead Space Development Team.  Users have until midnight on July 27th, 2008 to sign-up, and a winner will be notified shortly thereafter.  With films that range from 12 Monkeys to 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alien to Predator to Alien vs. Predator, this giveaway is the most comprehensive way to own the very best collection of Horror and Sci-fi films to date.

The game itself looks like a basic first person shooter like Doom (but on steroids).

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is one of the most ambitious projects LucasArts has ever launched. The combination of a great new Star Wars story with revolutionary new technology and game play means more fun than you’ve ever had in the Star Wars universe,” said Peter Hirschmann, Vice-President of Product Development, LucasArts in a statement. “We can’t wait until gamers get their hands on it this September.”

We can’t wait either (but we will).

We’ve been writing about this game for awhile and probably will lots more before the September release.

Star Wars The Force Unleashed: The Game Has Changed February 6, 2008

StarWars.com has done a marvelous job of keeping the fans updated on the latest about Star Wars : The Force Unleashed.

It looks like LucasArts has opening up more info to Vanity Fair too with a whole bunch of screen shots that no one has seen before.

 Since the shots are so slick, it’s tough to tell if they’re actual gameplay – though i expect that it is at this point as opposed to conceptual artwork though there is some of that there to be sure too.

Also to be sure is that Star Wars The Force Unleashed is getting the full FORCE of Lucas’ awesome marketing machine.

All the trailers we’ve seen so far make Star Wars The Force Unleashed look awesome.

Now apparently the game is also coming for the Nokia N-Gauge system..and the trailer is…well..it’s somewhat less the awesome.

The sound sucks the game play choppy and effects are weak. Hopefully that’s just problems with Nokia and not the game itself.

Available to order now through Play.com, this third-party accessory includes a  power up / down that makes the blade glow.

.i would guess that it’ll work well with Star Wars Lego…but the real test will be The Force Unleashed that doesn’t show up until 2008.

The Wii-Saber isn’t available just yet…but you won’t have too wait too long. Play.com has availability set for November 30th.

The first Star Trek game is now out for the Nintendo Wii !

Star Trek Conquest is now out letting us t ake control of Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces and lead them in a campaign to control the Galaxy, one planet at a time.

You can build and manage your growing empire in turn-based strategy, fully utilizing the Wii Remote™ as you select and maneuver your Starships throughout the large, galactic map…Once battle is initiated, Conquest switches to a ship level tactical view allowing direct command of your ships as you engage in real-time combat. While maneuvering your Starship with the Nunchuk™, you can take direct aim and fire away with the Wii Remote.

Ohhh and the best part? The PRICE! This game has an MSRP of only $29.99. We should have a copy by Thnxgiving and will post a full review soon thereafter.

The trailer though looks real slick…

Star Wars Lego for Nintendo Wii – Not so great for Wiimote November 10, 2007

We’ve been playing the new Star Wars Lego the Complete Saga for the Nintendo Wii for the last three days….

YES it’s the first Star Wars game available on the Wii.

YES it is the best version EVER of Star Wars lego – as it has EVERYTHING in it and lots of little extra cut scenes too.

NO it doesn’t make proper use of the Wiimote or Nunchuck. You can use the WiiMote to slash but it’s not consistent or fluid – it’s much easier and better for gameplay just to press the B button.

It won’t be until Star Wars the Force Unleashed comes out that we’ll finally see what the Wii was made for.
