Yes, this is real. We just could not resist!”
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is coming to PS3 Oct. 26th.

Director/writer Guillermo del Toro confirmed to MTV that he’s working with THQ on a series of games. THQ then said that they would be interested in working with him, “However, at this time, we do not have any formal announcement to make.”
Most likely there will be a formal announcement soon.
So chances are, you’ve played a violent video game or two. Maybe even killed an innocent civilian for no reason, without even giving it a second though. Or maybe perhaps when playing “No Russian” in Modern Warfare 2, you said to yourself, “Now this is just too much.” Well the website arstechina.com asked their readers what they felt. The results were mixed of course. Some readers used specific examples to back up their point, games such as Fallout 3, Manhunt 2, and Duke Nukem forever.
Others were simply quoted as, “Um, nope. It’s a game.”
So should there be a line drawn? Is there too much? In my opinion, every one is different. Sure, I’ve never been disgusted or repulsed by anything in a game, however others are horrified when I describe things to them. But there is no way to deny video games can effect us. They make us laugh, get us angry, even become sympathetic towards a fake person. So is it that big of a stretch to think that too much violence can affect us as well?
“Nay,” says this gamer, but maybe I’m wrong. The rest is up for you to decide.
