Over the past few months, there’s been endless speculation over whether or not Konami was making a Castlevania game for Wii. In one of the screenshots for the upcoming Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for the Nintendo DS, an option simply labelled as ‘Wii’ was shown in the game menu, leading many to believe that a Wii game was in the works – including some form of DS communication.

Recently, I’ve been speaking to a friend of mine about the Star Wars saga.

Just who is the hero of the Star Wars films?
Luke Skywalker, some might answer. The more Star Wars savvy out there will surely say “Anakin Skywalker, after all, he killed the Emperor and brought the Force back into balance”, presumably while pushing up their glasses and swishing their Hasbro Lightsabers in the air. “Even Lucas said so!”
Well you’re wrong. All of you. Even you, George, and you don’t even know it… (more…)
