How excited am I for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? More excited than Nien Nunb and Lando Calrissian when the shield generator on Endor finally went down.
I'm also pleasantly surprised by some quality video game journalism courtesy of Frank DiGiacomo of Vanity Fair and his "The Game Has Changed" feature.
DiGiacomo relates to us his visit to LucasArts massive San Francisco complex, where Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is being developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (tentatively due out this summer).
How about this for an excerpt?
By the time the demonstration was over, I was left with the unmistakable sense that LucasArts was on the cutting edge of a huge leap forward for the video-game industry—a technological breakthrough, nearly as revolutionary as the introduction of sound in film, that could finally give gaming the kind of immersive realism that would enable it to join movies and television as a form of mainstream entertainment.
Um, yeah, sign me up! I can't wait for this game!
