E3: Microsoft and LucasArts unveil Kinect Star Wars

If you’re following the E3 press conference today, you know that Microsoft and LucasArts have officially revealed Kinect Star Wars. If you’re not following, that’s what we’re here for! Star Wars fans everywhere now have a game that puts you into the action –literally! If you’ve ever really wanted to be a Jedi (not counting that plastic light saber you wield in your living room), then here is your chance. At the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, exciting news and great new games are being unveiled. There’s a trend with the Kinect this year but my favorite game so far from Microsoft is definitely Kinect Star Wars. Built around the Kinect technology where “your body is the controller”, you can now hurl, smash and crush enemies without ever touching a game controller. Wield your lightsaber with just the flick of a wrist and move objects telekinetically with hand motions. You…

E3: BioWare Teases their Star Wars TOR Booth on Spike

During GameTrailers TV on Spike, BioWare teased their booth at E3 2011, which fans everywhere are anxiously awaiting. The booth had a giant poster that advertises The Old Republic, which some have seen before at other events. There is also a line queuing area. But that’s all the info you get… It’s no secret that BioWare is being extra secretive about SWTOR and for great reason. Still for some players, the cat-and-mouse game is getting annoying. Some are ready for a release date already and still others just want any little tidbit they can get on the game. While many suspect there will be an official release date at E3, there is no real evidence to suggest this. Some believe there will not be a release date when there has not been info about end game content released yet. From reading the yellow posts on the forums, I’m not so…

SW:TOR Meet and Greet in Los Angeles during E3

David Bass, Senior Community Coordinator posts on the official forums about the “meet and greet” for SWTOR fans in LA: Hi everyone, Since E3 isn’t open to the public, we’re considering holding a meet and greet in Los Angeles during the expo so that fans who are in the LA area can meet up with us one night and chat with the developers. Unfortunately, we wouldn’t be able to have the game playable at this meet and greet, but you’d get a chance to chat with those of us who’ll be at the show, and hear about some of the cool things that are happening inside E3. We’d like to get a better idea of the size of group we’re looking at for an event like this, though. If you’d be interested in coming downtown one night between June 6-9 to meet up with the SW:TOR team, let us know…

Will SW:TOR Release Be Announced at E3?

Stephen Reid, Senior Online Community Manager for SW:TOR answers a forum question regarding more release date debate. GamewizX was trying to locate a quote from Reid regarding the release date announcement and a possibility of a connection to E3. Who would then pop into the thread to clear up the confusion? Why, none other than Stephen Reid himself: “Or I could just say it for you right here. I seem to recall I was trying to address the idea that the ‘only’ time a release date would be announced would be at a major show (this was pre-PAX). I have no idea where this idea started, but it’s not a definitive suggestion. It’s just a possibility.  That said, if we chose to announce a release date at any show, E3 would be a good choice, as it’s probably the most high-profile games industry show on the calendar. (It’s not the…
