So, how do you say “Halloween” in Basic?

Just in time for our quaint little superstitious Earth holiday comes a story of something very, very nasty and very, very hungry in a galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars: Death Troopers the novel drops on Tuesday, showing us that sometimes when someone is a little short for a Stormtrooper, it’s because their feet have been chewed off.

The novel itself has gotten relatively mediocre reviews, but something that gives us such creepy-cool fan-made zombie-Star Wars mashups has got to be worth praising. Gimme this over Jane Austen and the living dead any day.

8-bit + Lego = WIN

As I’ve mentioned before, I love anything 8-bit and/or pixel related. This video is not only an 8-bit tribute (in both visuals and audio), but it also uses LEGOS. It took them approximately 1500 hours to complete, but the end result was totally worth it. Enjoy :)

We Are In Love With Felicia Day (Again!)

Just, watch this video. She’s hot, she’s a geek, she plays the violin and now, she sings. She is the definition of awesome. And we are in love with her.

At last you can get touched… and for FREE!!!

After a long wait, Stan Bush finally gets his wish of releasing “The Touch” as DLC for Guitar Hero.  Activision is releasing the track for Guitar Hero: World Tour on May 28 as a free download. Fans of  “Transformers: The Movie” can finally live out their fantasy of performing the song while wearing their Optimus Prime pijamas, sitting in their Megatron reclinable chairs and sporting the Optimus Prime helmet with the voice changer feature. I know I will.

BTW, Stan made a new version of The Touch just in time for the release of Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.

Another Brick in the Wall: Rock Band does Lego

Rock on, little brick!Yeah, you read that right. Rock Band is going the Lego route. Lego has announced that the title, which has a release date of Winter ’09, is a “family friendly” version of the awesomely popular Rock Band franchise with “a lot of humor” and songs and content appropriate for “tweens and teens.”

According to a press release, songs in the game include: “Song 2,” “Kung Fu Fighting,” “The Final Countdown,” “Boys and Girls,” and “So What.”

This could be kind of cool. The infinite playability and customizability (yeah, that’s an actual word, m’kay!) would fit nicely in a world like Rock Band’s.

This game could be a lot of fun. Or it could be unspeakably horrible…

Harmonix is currently working on the eagerly-anticipated Beatles Rock Band, which will reach a store near you on 9/9/09. The Rock Band has franchise shipped 10 million units as of December 2008.
