    And the wii is the PERFECT platform for this. Can you imagine a lightsaber fight with the wiimotes?

    I hope they make use of the wiimote for force pulls and pushes as well. Would be cool.

    Like a lightsaber, but a lot more blood. Awesome game, but for an older crowd.

    Game looks pimp as all hell. I am very excited. Now if we can just get LucasArts to make KOTOR III, I will be happy.

    Currently playing Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Ridiculously entertaining game.

    My nephews got that and thought that was "cute" for them to play. Then I got into it and had to go out and buy it for myself.

    My future parents-in-law bought it for me for Christmas, but then my fiance started playing it and is now thoroughly addicted. I had to go out and buy another 360 wireless controller just so we could play at the same time (I had previously owned just one controller, and never anticipated that the woman would start taking an interest in video games).

    Don't kid yourself. My wife might not play it a lot, but she loves it.

    And the wii is the PERFECT platform for this.
    The wii version will likely look nothing like that trailer. The version they're showing is for the 360 and PS3. The wii has nothing on those machines hardware-wise. Too bad, too. It'd be really fun on the Wii, but Nintendo will likely get the dumbed down version compared to the other two.

    The best part about this game is that it will be running the Euphoria physics engine, which is supposed to create some of the most lifelike AI ever developed. Another game using it is a new football game called "Backbreaker." They're claiming that no two tackles will ever be alike. Worth checking out.

    I didn't know about Lego Batman. Lego Indiana Jones is coming out this spring, too.

    Edit: Sure enough, Lego Batman is due Fall 2008.

    I saw a write up on both of them and they seem to be pretty much along the lines of the Star Wars Legos. Should be good.

    I agree with this -- even though the Wii edition will have full use of the lightsaber with the Wiimote, the outstanding physics simulation found in the PS3/360 editions will not make it to the Wii. I love my Wii to death, but it's things like this that still make me yearn for a "true" next gen system.

    Feel the same way, but the funds keep running dry. Especially with NCAA this year, I'm ready to get a real system to play this stuff on.

    Speaking of Star Wars, on my XBox I had games like Old Republic, and another that I never even started. Where those fun for anyone? I just didn't seem to have the patience.

    I couldnt stand KOTOR. Im just not into those types of games. Give me an old fashion hack n slash or a FPS and Im good to go. The only strategy type game I liked was Gears.
