Recently I came upon a new Star Wars trailer, for Star Wars: The Old Republic. The story picks up after Knights of the Republic, but is set 3,000 years before the timeline of the Star Wars movies.
For fans of the Star Wars movies, let me warn you that this will make you want more. This trailer is action-packed! (And it’s not for the faint of heart.) The story sounds good, too.
The trailer is for an upcoming MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) video game. I wish it were an upcoming movie! That’s certainly nothing against video games, but I just don’t have time to play an MMO that much, and this premise would make a great movie.
I’ve heard that the Star Wars movie series is supposed to be over, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more made. There is so much story still unused, and even if it features all new characters, such a movie would still be awesome. This trailer is proof of that.
You’ve probably seen the recent Batman movie The Dark Knight, featuring the Joker. (If you haven’t, what’s wrong with you? It’s only one of the best action movies ever!) Anyway, someone made a new trailer for that movie but set it in the context of the 1960s Batman TV series (which is good, but cheesy, and takes itself way too seriously). Prepare to be taken back in time*.
* Not literally. That technology is still in the research stage.
Now, the video:
There’s a new game called Wii Fit coming out for the Nintendo Wii soon, and one of the trailers has some humorous moments in it. The first part consists of players kicking soccer balls at you, and you must block them with your head. This video is funny for three reasons : 1) the intro, where the game looks really lame with folks just jumping around; 2) the players sometimes kick other things at you, like their shoes and a panda head (WHAT?!?); and 3) the thought that some people almost fall off the couch or bed trying to play video games with a standard controller — imagine them having to balance themselves and move around quickly while responding to all that’s going on; that could be funny.
