LucasArts today announced that its highly anticipated videogame Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be released on September 16, 2008 in the United States, September 17 in Southeast Asia and Australia, and September 19 in Europe.

An entirely new chapter in the Star Wars Saga, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The game's expansive story is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi -- and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

"Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is one of the most ambitious projects LucasArts has ever launched. The combination of a great new Star Wars story with revolutionary new technology and game play means more fun than you've ever had in the Star Wars universe," said Peter Hirschmann, Vice-President of Product Development, LucasArts. "We can't wait until gamers get their hands on it this September."

LucasArts and Spike TV are teaming up together to unveil new details and exclusive footage from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in celebration of Spike TV's airing of all six Star Wars Saga movies. Airing Friday, April 4 through Sunday, April 6; and Friday, April 11, through Sunday, April 13, Spike TV's two-weekend event includes the broadcast premiere of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and the basic cable premieres of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. Spike TV's Star Wars presentation marks the first time that all six movies will be presented together on a basic cable network.

Reflecting its status as an exciting new part of the Star Wars Saga, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be featured throughout Spike TV's weekend events. Viewers will see special Star Wars: The Force Unleashed segments, each with an exclusive announcement or new game play footage, at the following times on Spike TV:

"Our dedication to entertainment and video games makes our relationship with LucasArts an exciting opportunity to take part first-hand in Star Wars history as well as give our viewers an insider's look at the future of the franchise."

:thumbdwn: I love this paradox of gaming: Crysis is too high end to run on consoles, but SW: Force Unleashed is too demanding to run on PC's. /sigh :cool:

What's this thread about? I couldn't read because I was distracted by that avatar!

As a man I enjoy that avatar, but when I try to read this forum at work during my lunch break, it annoy me. It makes it look like I'm viewing a porn site.

I can't be the only one who looks at the forum at work and feels the same way.

Edit: Those boobs have been artificially enhanced. I'm an expert. I can't be fooled :)

Actually, those boobs are not enhanced. They belong to Next Door Nikki, who as all natural. She is simply blessed with a huge rack.

The physics model just doesn't look right to me. She's not applying a lot of pressure but they still look round like there is an air filled ball in there. I bet she had a decent set then had some small enhancements.

Those "small upgrades" often fool people but not experts like me :D

(What's the thread about? :D )
