The Entire Star Wars Epic, Episodes I-VI, All On One Disk!

Too bad we're not talking about the movies. But hey, at least I got your attention. As we all know, Star Wars celebrated its 30th anniversary last Friday. And with timing being everything and all, Traveller's Tales took it upon themselves last week to announce the latest game in the Lego Star Wars franchise.

As I alluded to in my ever-so-deceptive title, this as-yet untitled game will span the entire Star Wars movie epic, and will include characters and stories from all six episodes. But, as Ars Technica reported, this is not just a rehash of the existing two titles. The levels from the previous games will be altered, and there will be new content as well. The multiplayer will also be enhanced, with online play available using the PS3 or Xbox 360.

Despite the potential for some been there, done that moments, this is sure to be a must have title. The Lego Star Wars games are great fun, if a little too simplistic at times. Still, what other game has a playable Chewbacca character that rips the arms off of his enemies? Wookies rule.

There's no release date on this one yet, but look for this to hit before the end of the year. And if you're a little short on cash at release time, just use the Jedi mind trick on the guy at the store.

P.S. - I'd just like to mention that this is the 100th post here at the Atomic Playground. It's taken a couple of months to get here, but this is a true milestone. A special thanks to all the readers for coming by and hanging out on the Playground, and thanks to everyone working behind the scenes and keeping this place going. Next stop - 1000!
