What’s more exciting than playing the highly anticipated follow-up to LucasArts’ popular video game title, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? Playing the game using another LucasArts character from a completely different world: Guybrush Threepwood.
Guybrush will apparently be available in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II as an unlockable and fully playable character, and there’s pictures to prove it! The amusing announcement was made on the game’s official Facebook page, though it is still unclear whether or not once you do figure out how to unlock Guybrush, if you’ll be able to play through the entire campaign with him.

This approaching week is easily the most exciting of the year for any fans of video games. It’s the week that the annual E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) gaming convention is held, and it’s where all game developers and publishers like to make their biggest announcements and show off the newest trailers and gameplay footage from upcoming titles.
To help us get excited for what we’re going to get at E3 2010, GameTrailers.com aired a very special show that revealed some new videos from highly-anticipated upcoming game titles. This was just an appetizer to our eyes but filling it surely was, and now you can go and check the videos out if you missed them.

In what can perhaps be claimed as the biggest surprise of the night during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards, a brand new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II was shown to the masses! As it was with Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, it appears that most people had no idea that this game was even in the works, let alone that there was an awesome trailer ready to go (Note: the image at right was found at the Lucas Arts website, so it may have been announced before these awards were presented). With the huge new Knights of the Old Republic MMO being developed by BioWare, Star Wars and its universe is making a big push at completely taking over the world of gaming!
Once again, the trailer is of the cinematic variety, and it shows we the Apprentice from the first game walking down a corridor as the voices of Jedi Master Yoda and the dark Sith Lord Vader ring through his head, swaying him from one side to the other. We then get a glimpse at what appears to be a Rancor…a really f’n big Rancor.
I must say, I was really excited to play the first one, but as feared, all of the work that was done of the amazing physics took away from the story a bit, and I was left a little let down. That said, I still enjoyed the game enough to be totally excited to see what they can do in a sequel.
Head on over to the not-so-dark side to check out the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
