News That Made Me Unleash My Force All Over The Place!

And I'm not the only one!

Lucasarts are also throwing off huge, sticky wristfulls of force in all directions, including to Wii owners.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, all I really want to do with my wii-mote is be a kid with a lightsabre again. So the great god of gaming has smiled upon us and declared that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be making it to the Wii and will have an exclusive 'Duel Mode' to satisfy our collective craving.

My only concern (why is it I always find myself becoming suspicious of Wii games? Have I been burnt that many times already?) is that without the physics stuff that the 360 and PS3 can handle, will this game be any good? I expect there will be 'some' of the physics that the Wii can manage (see Eledees) but they'll have to change the game a great deal.
That could be a good thing however, as the last thing we need is another Wii game ported over from a more powerful system with hilarious results.

I think this will make a lot of people that own a Wii and a 360/PS3 buy both copies of the game if it truly is quite different to play. Which I'm sure Lucasarts will be fairly pleased with.

It's all Jedi mind tricks if you ask me...

"Duel Mode"?
Sounds suspiciously like "mini games" to me!
