Today some new screenshots of Eidos' next Star Wars game for the PC were released. In an unexpected twist, the Star Wars game design will be presented with Lego geometry, down to various space vessels, droids, and Jedis. An especially cool feature involves using the Force to separate structures and arrange the Lego blocks into a different item to get past certain areas. Gameplay appears to be a pretty straight-foward hack and jump affair. Still, it's great to see this idea come to fruition.

You gotta love it a kid that just doesn't care what anyone else thinks. Apparently, he decided to try out a game while waiting for Mommy to finish shopping. I guess she took a little longer than he expected, so he pulled up a chair...er...shopping cart and figured he would just play to his hearts content. I implore each and every one of you to go to your nearest Wal-Mart, Target, or any other major chain that has shopping carts. Regardless of your size, hop in and start playing a game. Hell, if you snap a picture and send it to us you may even score some free gear. God Bless America.

For many, digital music has no "fixed" format. It is just various files ranging between 3-5 MB in an MP3, AAC, or WMA format filling their hard drives and populating various peer to peer networks on the internet. No matter what format you use, these fairly new compression methods make it easy to carry along your entire music collection with you wherever you go, surpassing anything we could have done a decade ago. So where are we headed? The Gear Live editors take a look at the future of digital music after the jump.
Electronic Arts recently spoke out on the topic of next generation gaming. The picture above is what EA says is a possibility with the next Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo consoles - football players that show emotions as individuals with stunning graphics. EA also expects that each console will have some sort of integrated wireless technology, stating "in every living room, we'll have a wireless hub". Interesting quote, as most know that EA is the biggest videogame publisher out there. They are probably privy to more inside info than most, which leads me to believe that all three major console developers do have plans to integrate wireless chips into their next-gen machines.

Wired reports that the recently released World of Warcraft is turning out to be one of the more pleasant experiences in MMORPG combat. There's plenty of easy adventuring to be had right from the onset, the environments and your character models are a joy to look at, and the servers even help you level-up your character when you're not playing, so that you can easily catch up with other hardcore players. The game was released last week, and has already shattered records with over 240,000 units sold on its first day. Personally I'm still staying away, since I already have enough time-consuming but enjoyable things on my list.
