There were a million trailers that debuted at the Spike Video Game Awards on Saturday, but I deem this one the only one worth posting. I’ll sum up Arkham Asylum by saying the streets of Gotham are crime-filled and the Joker is quite happy about it. I’ll sum up Halo Reach by saying Spartans now have accents and different types of armor.
The Force Unleahsed 2 however, is a sequel to what I think is one of the best written gams of last year (but suffered from some control and physics problems) and the trailer has the most action of any at the award show. It opens with a dualing monologue between Vader and Yoda, and ends with young Starkiller fighting a rancor-eating space ape the size of a Star Destroyer.
I have to wonder how the hell this game is going to work, because the original Force Unleashed was a perfect bridge builder between episodes III and IV and Starkiller, you know, died, but I’ll trust the crack writing team to come up with something. Oh and TURN THIS INTO A MOVIE ALREADY.
