LEGO Star Wars III Commercial is Friggin’ ADORABLE

Ah, the LEGO series. It’s surprisingly been a good one. Not necessarily triple-A, per se, but from Batman to Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, they’ve all been pretty darn solid titles. And how could we forget the LEGO Star Wars series and all of its inherent adorability? We just can’t. And this commercial for LEGO Star Wars III, which will hit the Nintendo DS, 3DS and Wii later this month, doesn’t do much to combat that statement. Just look at Yoda at the end of the spot. TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT TO PINCH THOSE CHEEKS AND PURR! Check out the cuteness below.

Some people make videos of their kids laughing and post it on you-tube, other people dance only in their underwear for the sweet taste of fame… and than it’s those who make Mascots out of them self’s. But within the people who create mascots… seems to be an uprising special group of people, those who I would call, Self-claimed critics… People that for some reasons plague a certain form of art industry.

I think that it’s safe to say that “Angry Video Game Nerd” is one of the first… or well, one of the first who took this form of…

Kill Chewbacca & Han Solo with The Force Unleashed 2 DLC

It’s no secret that both Harrison Ford and writer Lawrence Kasdan wanted to kill off Han solo in the last act of Return of the Jedi. George Lucas was against it though, so Han Solo stayed alive, and got the girl in the end. Since then George Lucas has changed his mind.  Star Wars: The force unleashed II: Endor bonus Mission, let’s you – not only slaughter shit loads of Ewoks – you also get to cold blooded murder of Han, Chewie And Leia. The video is below, if you needed something to scream “nooooooooo” at. I heard there’s also downloadable content which lets you play a character who looks like you as a child, and then an NPC who looks like George Lucas rolls in on a golf cart and rapes your character. Just what I heard.

Review: The Force Unleashed II by Sean Williams

The following review was written by Lord Iurus of NJOE.com, where he maintains an ongoing look back at the Expanded Universe, “A Long Time Ago”, as well as providing Spoiler Free reviews a week before most major Star Wars releases, in addition to the other reviews found at his blog.  The original review was posted here. “A Jedi can sometimes sense visions of the future.” “Have you ever done this before?” “I’ve never been a Jedi before.” I’m sitting here in an underground bunker on Malastare. The Hutts are ticked off. Not my fault they left a copy of The Force Unleashed II lying around where I could find it. Seriously. That’s just poor planning. Never mind how they got it; I’m sure Jabba had a few precogs on his payroll. Or, maybe he didn’t. Maybe Durg- no, no. Okay, well, maybe the copy I stole is a fraud. Or, maybe they…
