EA and Disney Strike Video Game Deal For Star Wars

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, The Walt Disney Co. and Electronic Arts Inc. came to a deal which will allow EA to provide us with the future of Star Wars gaming.  The deal is for “New” Star Wars games, leaving to question weather we will ever see some of the Lucas Arts highly anticipated titles.  However, we are getting new Star Wars games, so I am pretty excited. The exclusi...

Disney shuts down LucasArts

Sad, yet not surprising news to report: Disney is shutting down LucasArts effective immediately. Close to 150 LucasArts staff members have been laid off, and all current projects have been cancelled, including Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault.

What’s the best Wii lightsaber game to date?

I honestly don’t know. Admittedly, I’ve even been a little jaded by lightsaber games, since I think tactile feedback is necessary and playing with sticks might be a better alternative. That said, a friend asked me, so I thought I’d open it up to the always handsome and intelligent Infendo readers. So… what’s the best Wii lightsaber game to date? Secondly, what’s...

New Game Get – Beatles Rock Band, Muramasa, and Contra Rebirth!

This week’s big release is The Beatles: Rock Band, but you have to admit that Muramasa looks pretty awesome, too.
