Wave your arms in the air if you just don't care

14 Jun, 2010, 04:03 | Posted by: jp-30 | Source: Kotaku
All over the web gaming sites like Kotaku are reporting that LucasArts has been developing a motion controlled Star Wars game to use the Xbox360's newfangled Wiimote Project Natal Kinect capture hardware.

Most promising may well be a Star Wars game, developed by Microsoft and Lucasarts, that features controller-free lightsaber duels, complete with force powers like "force push".

If you thought you looked like a knob waving the wiimote around like a lightsaber, this is gonna take it Over 9000!

I guess you could always grab a cucumber from the fridge and wave that around as a substitute.

UPDATE: Whoa boy. There's footage. Although it's as much video of someone playing the game as it would be if you taped yourself watching Star Wars and miming every scene in front of your television.

Fail indeed.

    Or pick up your Force FX replica Luke Skywalker lightsaber and use that. You have one, do not try to deny it.



    Dammit man, you even got the Luke Skywalker part correct. Couldn't you have said Darth Vader so I could at least plausibly deny it?
