Damn

Mods, please move this video over to Untitled Star Wars game

I searched for "Star Wars" and it didn't return that thread.. I swear!!

Then I posted this thread, then I searched for "Unleashed" and found it..

When you move it, could you change the title to this one?

Some time ago I said in the other thread that it's time to change the title since we now know the name of the game. But I was ignored as usual.

Which is why it's ridiculous that we can't edit titles of threads. I just hit 'Report Post' everytime and ask mods to change them.

My friend told me that there's a scene they show where the main character pulls an Empire battleship out of the sky into the ground. Almost seems like the "apprentice" is too powerful.

That's a cutscene from the trailer at http://www.lucasarts.com/games/theforceunleashed/

I dunno, looked pretty badass to me.

I think this thing looks like a lot of fun. I had a great time with the comparatively tame Force powers of the Jedi Knight series. This looks like the "TIE Fighter" version of that game.

Well I just checked the Dev vidoe off XBL and it does look fantastic with the Havoc Engine in place. It was really interesting to hear just how the Havoc reacts as far as objects in terms of wood, glass and metal react in real world. The physics were very impressive. However the few scenes with the Apprentice like it was mentiones seemed a bit too powerful.

Sorry about that, my bad. It's on Team XBox, not XBL and it's about 116mb DL but does show allot.

There are a few good videos of this game at www.gametrailers.com. There's a good one with one of the devs explaining how the game has three different physics simulations running at once and how they interact with each other. I believe the new Indiana Jones game will be using the same technology as well. Looks sweet.

I could swear I posted some videos in the other thread...ignored once again

Anyway, I'm sure they're still there.

I wonder how long it will be before a physics card will be mandatory to run new games?

I remember back in the mid-90s when 3D graphics were just starting out. Video cards for the PC back then were called "3D accelerators" and were completely optional. Then in the late 90s, as 3D graphics got more complex, games started requiring 3D video cards. I remember seeing stickers on PC game boxes stating that "This game requires a 3D accelerator."

There is already one physics card that I know of, called the PhysX or something like that. I wonder when physics cards will become a requirement for gaming...

LucasArts today announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be released on September 16 in the United States. A PAL release will follow on September 17 and Europe will be granted the use of the Force on September 19.

LucasArts and developer KromeStudios are also creating versions of the game for the Wii, PS2 and PSP. n-Space, Inc., is developing a version for Nintendo DS. All will feature the same storyline, LucasArts said.

Now that I'm now a multi-console gamer, I've been thinking about this game. The way the game is going to make use of the Wii's inputs seems so awesome -- using the Wiimote as a lightsaber and usng the nunchuck's motion-sensing to simulate tossing people around with the force seems like the awesomest thing ever. But a game like this seems like it would look and play much better on the 360, which has so much more horsepower. What to do, what to do?

I'm with you. Originally Lucasarts kept saying the Wii game was different than TFU altogether. I wish they would have stuck to that plan because Wii controls would be sweet, but as always Live, DLC, HD, etc. will win out.

Unless this will make use of the 3mote that has been rumored about. That may just warrant a purchase. TFU in HD plus Wii controls? I've been thinking the same thing about Boom Blox but that doesn't seem like it would make a big difference on the 360.

What is the 3mote?

I believe the 3mote is another name for the Dual Shock 3 (Play Station 3 controller that has rumble and motion sensing capabilities).

I think he was talking about the rumored wii remote clone for the 360 that surfaced a few weeks ago.

Yep. Rumor is EA is pushing heavy for it. I presume for Boom Blox as I'm sure Speilberg doesn't come cheap and they want it on as many systems as possible. You know, the EA mantra. 3mote is just a goofy name one of the podcasters is tossing around.
