'Lego Star Wars' (PS2/Xbox/PC) - 6 New Screens

by Rainier on March 19, 2005 @ 1:54 p.m. PST | Filed under News

Quick, what's the first thing you think of when someone says "Star Wars?" Whatever it is, it's probably not "Lego"… but after playing Lego Star Wars, that might be different. Relive the Star Wars saga as retold in Lego form, guiding an increasingly large cast through everything from adventures on Naboo to the Pod Race on Tatooine. Sure, the ships are made out of bricks and your characters are all little guys with detachable plastic hair, but that just makes Star Wars better.

by Rainier on March 19, 2005 @ 6:20 a.m. PST | Filed under News

According to French fansite XboxMag the upcoming issue of GameInformer magazine will have the announcement that Oddworld Inhabitants is alreayd working on a new title in the Oddworld franchise. A few changes are certainly worth mentioning. For staters, the new title will apparently be rated "M" (Mature) and not be published by EA, but by Majesco instead. Unlike the Far West theme in Oddworld Stranger, the new game will take place in Fangustan, and that is also where the new title comes from "Oddworld: Fangus." Fangus is a shepperd who's quiet life is being interrupted by invaders (Fangustan = Afghanistan ?) and thus he will be called on to save the world. Gameplay will remain the same, switching between first and third person view. Oddworld: Fangus is scheduled for somewhere in 2006, Xbox or Xbox 2, more details will surely be released in a few months at E3.

Scrapland is an action game. In third-person, the player controls D-Tritus when he goes on foot and his gunship when he pilots on Chimera streets. The player, by hacking into the GDB, can transform himself into 15 different characters, acquiring then the special ability of every one of them. The player can also drive any gunship he finds and can create his own collection of unique gunships, freely combining pieces he finds aboard the ship.
