Star Wars the Old Republic recently released this video of PVP action on the planet Alderaan. The combat mechanics look very similar to WOW but without the ability to auto attack. We are interested to see how the combat plays out in this title, especially regarding the balance of the classes.
It looks like there are some pretty cool aspects of strategy involved with the PVP warzones. We aren’t sure if this is an open world type of PVP zone or more of a closed instance that you que for, but it looks like fun nonetheless.
We have a long time to wait for this one… can’t wait!
Officially a neutral world, Alderaan has become the focus of Republic and Imperial political maneuvering. Even as conflict between Alderaan’s noble houses threatens to turn into civil war, Republic and Imperial forces engage in a secret battle that could decide the planet’s fate. High in the mountains, both sides fight for control of Alderaan’s massive planetary defense cannon—a weapon powerful enough to devastate an enemy’s fleet and ensure domination over the planet’s skies.
What are two great tastes that taste good together? The Simpsons and Zombies, that’s what.
It was only a matter of time before two titans of pop culture did the monster mash and combined to scare and delight. The second series of The Simpsons three inch vinyl toys will drop soon from Kid Robot.
Along for the ride this time, more citizens of Springfield like Moe, the beloved bartender, and Moleman…just because. Collect them all, because your never too old to buy toys. As always, you never know who you may get because this is a blind item, which makes it all the more fun.
You may be asking, “What the #!*@ is a blind box?” Allow us to explain: A blind box is a type of packaging that completely hides its contents. Blind boxes are identical in every way and nobody-including Kid Robot-knows which toy is inside.
Fable 3 is set to release today, and from what we can tell, the live co-op looks to be a lot better this time around.
In this recent video released by Lionhead Studios, many of the awesome features that were promised for Fable 2, but were ultimately not delivered, made it into Fable 3. Both players will have the ability to move the camera in co-op and freely roam each other’s worlds. It seems like the ability to “touch” in the game will have some interesting elements as well.
Headstache.com will be picking this game up today. Keep your eyes open for a review later this week!
The shear imagination and work that went into creating the original Star Wars trilogy was mind boggling. Aside from the production teams and cast working on the films, you had entire art departments creating incredibly detailed models and miniature environments that to this day look better than the CGI we got in the Star Wars prequels years later.
Here at Headstache.com we love to find out about all the behind the scenes details that go into making a film, and that is why the new book by J. W. Rinzler named The Making of Starwars: The Empire Strikes Back is one of the most interesting books we have come across. We can’t wait to sink our teeth into this bad boy.
Space buffs out there might find this interesting:
A newly installed webcam is giving the public an opportunity to watch technicians assemble and test the next NASA Mars rover, one of the most technologically challenging interplanetary missions ever designed.
NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory, also known as the Curiosity rover, is in a clean room at the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The webcam, affectionately called “Curiosity Cam,” provides the video feed, without audio, from a viewing gallery above the clean room floor. The video will be supplemented periodically by live Web chats featuring Curiosity team members answering questions about the rover. Currently, work in the clean room begins at 8 a.m. PDT Monday through Friday.
Clean room technicians have been busy adding new avionics and instruments to the rover. Beginning Friday, viewers will see technicians carefully add the rover’s suspension system and its six wheels. On Monday, Oct. 25, the rover’s 7-foot-long robotic arm will be carefully lifted and attached to the front of the rover.
The camera shows a portion of the clean room that is typically active; but the rover, spacecraft components and technicians may move out of view as work shifts to other areas of the room. When activity takes place in other testing facilities around JPL, the clean room may be empty. The camera also may be turned off periodically for maintenance or due to technical issues.
Months of assembly and testing remain before the car-sized rover is ready for launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. The rover and spacecraft components will ship to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida next spring. The launch will occur between Nov. 25 and Dec. 18, 2011. Curiosity will arrive on Mars in August 2012.
Curiosity is engineered to drive longer distances over rougher terrain than previous rovers with a science payload 10 times the mass of instruments on NASA’s Spirit and Opportunity.
The new, large rover will investigate whether the landing region has had environments favorable for supporting microbial life and for preserving evidence about whether life existed on the Red Planet.

I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS is the improbable but true story of a spectacularly charismatic conman’s journey from small-town businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal, who repeatedly finds himself in trouble with the law and on the lam, brilliantly escaping from the Texas prison system on four separate occasions – all in the name of love.
Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) leads a seemingly average life – an organ player in the local church, happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local police force. That is until he has a severe car accident that leads him to the ultimate epiphany: he’s gay and he’s going to live life to the fullest – even if he has to break the law to do it. Taking on an extravagant lifestyle, Steven turns to cons and fraud to make ends meet and is eventually sent to the State Penitentiary where he meets the love of his life, a sensitive, soft-spoken man named Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts him to attempt (and often succeed at) one impossible con after another. Told with an uncanny sense of humor and a lot of heart, “I Love You Phillip Morris” is an oddball tale of what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit and undying love collide.
