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.

What if Ganondorf and Link were... closer?

It was fun to see how the internet reacted to speculation that Link in the next Zelda for Wii U might be a woman. The response was very similar to how I imagined the world might respond to a Blasian Link. When it was revealed...more

Modified 3DS hardware created for Twitch Plays Pokémon X

It was slightly surprising to hear that the Twitch Plays Pokémon community is still active if for no other reason than I thought folks would have beaten all of the games by now. Not quite! There's still Pokémon ...more
