Expanded Universe continues to be popular amongst collectors, particularly when it comes to gaming. The 2009 Fan's Choice winner shares the same game (Knights of the Old Republic) and scarcity, and for now, high premium as the 2006 winner, Darth Revan. While traditionalists would rather stick with film based characters, there is a cross market out there that are buying the game based figures up. Besides, Bastila Shan is great looking.
Over on EW.com is a preview for the new Kinect Star Wars game coming to E3 this week. Remember the buzz of a Clone Wars game? Apparently they decided to tackle more than just the show. Click through for a video sizzle and brief article.
While the game took a critical beating, those who want to come back for more Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II will be able to download a special Endor Bonus Mission for a surprisingly good price-- only a buck on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. It's up right now. Not only can you zap Ewoks, but two other classic characters (spoilers) are in your sights!
If you have an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 connected to the internet, you can download a playable demo of an early stage of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II right now. It's about 700 megs, so while big it should provide a nice sampling of what's to come very soon. Assuming you buy the game, of course.
If you like to try before you buy, you'll get to try out the clone (or is he?) of Starkiller next week. PSN and Xbox Live's marketplace will both host the demo on October 12, 2010. Obviously, check your dashboards for exact availability. The game itself has a number of iterations including Amazon-exclusive DLC. As such, be sure to shop around before you buy!
