Lightsaber action coming to the Wii?

Ever since the gaming community first laid eyes on Nintendo's Wiimote, Star Wars geeks from around the world have been chomping at the bit to get their sweaty hands on a game that lets them truly experience the thrill of lightsaber battle. Well if we're not reading too much into what Jim Ward of LucasArts recently said at the Hollywood & Games Summit panel in Los Angeles, such a game prototype exists -- and is being enjoyed by the Lucasart's crew.

"Internally we have already played a lightsaber game on the Wii. It’s a lot of fun, and we’ll get there."

 The reason for the caution centers on the news of LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga coming to the Wii sometime this year. Since it will also use the Wiimote, we have no conclusive proof that this isn't what Jim Ward was referring to when he made the comment. We can only hope that the guys at LucasArts have something big to announce at E3 regarding the Wii/Star Wars connection. I'm sure they are keenly aware that gamers are more eager to hear about a Force Unleashed type game, as opposed to a LEGO Star Wars compilation with motion-sensing controls strapped on. For the love of God, George Lucas, we must have such a game.

Nice troll, Best Buy

I got this email earlier today. But it is too late, Best Buy. It's always too late for retailer exclusive amiibo. Earlier today Nintendo also tweeted out a link to the Gold Mario Walmart listing -- about an hour after it...more

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that j...more
