Happy 30th Anniversary Star Wars

It's hard to believe that it's been this long, but it's true. 30 years ago, in a movie theater far, far away, a legend was born. And that legend was Star Wars. Ever since that day, we've been obsessed with lightsabers, the Millennium Falcon, and of course, Darth Vader. This series has touched the life of almost everyone in this country, and even the world. And because of that, we need to celebrate geek style. Let the internet festivities begin!

First, go take The Ultimate Star Wars Personality Test and find out your true identity in the Star Wars universe. If you turn out to be Queen Amidala, you have my condolences.

Next, get yourself some learning over at the Star Wars Wikipedia page. Whether you're a noob or a nerd, you'll find out something that you didn't know. Then you can wow your guild with some mad knowledge.

After Wiki, go get yourself some Star Wars wallpaper so you can decorate your desktop with style. There are literally hundreds of wallpapers available, so you should have no trouble finding something to satisfy even the most discerning wookie. And guys, if you can't find what you're looking for, I've got you covered. Finding the right image is as easy as counting to 1, 2, 3, and 4. You're welcome.

Now it's time to rock out. And for that, we've got one of the best Star Wars rap songs ever - it's Fett's Vette, by mc chris. Even Vader would appreciate the skills on this track.

Then finally, come back here and share your favorite Star Wars moment with the rest of the Atomic Playground community via the comments section. What's my favorite? Easy - Slave Leia. Oh yeah. As for second favorite - the end of Empire, and the battle between Luke and Vader. It's classic.

So enjoy all the Star Wars goodness that the net has to offer. Later this evening, be sure to check out our friends over on G4. Attack of the Show! will kick off a 2 hour Star Wars special at 7 pm ET, followed by a Star Wars themed X-Play at 9 pm ET. Our friends over at Epileptic Gaming will also have some special Star Wars coverage tonight, and they go live at 7 pm ET.

And in case you were wondering just what Star Wars character the kidd is, wonder no more:

I'm Han Solo baby! Send your princesses this way.

And, of course, what would a special occasion be on the Playground without a video. So, for your viewing pleasure, may I present a classic:

Obi-Wan would be proud, young master Jedi.

May the force be with you.

In this year the classic Star Wars is 33 years since its release in 1967, it's impressive this films are still there because these have been so successful. By looking at the princess with that sexy dress makes me think about taking generic viagra.
