    Thanks to the Clone Wars TV series, Star Wars has found a totally new audience to sell low quality crap to.

    I still have nightmares seeing Yoda and Darth Vader in fucking Vodaphone adverts

    @ Da Man – I’d buy Witcher if it was on PS3, I think it looks amazing. Actually considered rebuying a 360 to play Witcher

    I bought Kinect Star Wars, I found its complete lack of respect for the estate highly entertaining.

    Plus those Star Wars parody remixes really are fucking incredible. Its also worth saying that im in no way a fan of Star Wars in its current condition I hate everything outside of the original 3 movies and the Christmas Special. The expanded Universe is so up its own arse its beyond belief so it was great to see something openly mocking alot of it.

    Kinect Star Wars was poor, when i saw people (including full grown men) buy the game i almost told them not to get it … but then i’d probably get sacked for doing so so i kept my mouth shut.

    I’m suprised The Witcher 2 did so well, it must have been a slow week. It does look good but it’s definately not my kind of game (i.e; a hardcore action RPG) … Skyrim was my stopping point and while i completed the main story i reckon i barely scratched the surface of that game, but was happy with the amount i did play.

    The Witcher 2 however, is definately way too hardcore for me.

    I am damn happy for the developers, they so deserve it. And their mindset on DLC and general things is just perfect and how other developers should think too. Again, well deserved for CD Projekt.

    One week is one week, but it couldn’t happen to a better game. I really hope it finds an audience on the 360.

    What DSB said.
    This game is really really great, and it deserves to be played by pretty much everyone!

    #13 The Witcher = core RPG, Fable = casual action adventure.

    @14 gameplay and the world itself is pretty similar to fable

    If it is something like fable, well i think i will not regreat my pre-order, this generation i did enjoy a lot games that were like fable II, amalur, etc, therefore i think i will enjoy this one a lot, of course if the fable comparisions are accurate, but i got the feeling this was thrown like a bad thing instead of a good one, but in my eyes is a good one IMHO

    It’s not like Fable, Charlie Sheen is just trolling, and somehow people feel that’s always worth validating.
