Thanks Jayson.  Doesn't look like there's much of a difference where I get the Wii version...  Looks like I'll be stopping at WM on my way into work tomorrow.

Anyone know what store is supposed to have the best deal tomorrow?
"deal" breakdowns


I pre-ordered at TRU to get the best "deal".

Yeah that $20 card is pretty well worth it.  Nobody else even has a deal...  Unless you count the T-Shirt at Best Buy, which I don't.

I can't believe the massive screwjob caused by the Stormtrooper Commander though.  That's easily the biggest mess revolving around this.  I'm still reluctant to buy the game immediately.  I may wait for a sale, may not.

I picked up my archaic PS-2 version tonight.  And the deal there was that they gave me the figure for free.

I picked up the wii version last night and they gave me a free stormtrooper commander. Someone outside the store also gave me one. I havn't played the game yet. When right to bed.

I got my 2 stormtroopers and went to bed. Probably won't play it till either tomorrow or Thursday. Not feeling so well today and going to go home and to bed, and tomorrow night is my turn to fight the kid to put him to sleep so I might have to play it on Thursday after swimming leasons for the little guy.

You get to take turns putting the kid to bed?! :o  I have to put all three of them to bed every night! Aaah, the joys of Parenthood.

Played through the first two levels this evening. I don't understand why it's getting bad reviews.
I remember my dream now.

Lightside down. Now I just have to beat it on Dark side, at Sith Master, and get those last few achievements. I have a feeling Sith Master is going to suck balls...

You played through the entire game once? Or is playing dark side part of the storyline?

Yeah I played through (and beat) the game with the light side ending. Light/Dark Side has nothing to do with most of the game, it just changes the ending.

Wow! That was fast Ryan. I'm in the middle of the second level now. Swinging the wii remote around is exhausting. However, I've got to say using the wii remote is alot of fun for combat even if it gets a little hectic at times trying to do force powers and lightsaber at the same time but I'm getting better at it.

The only thing so far I can complain about the wii version is the crappy cutscenes. They are animated real time by the wii's engine and look terrrible. The lips barely move during talking. There is no motion capture at all. I've seen better looking cutscenes on the original playstation. Too bad they didn't just show a video of the 360/ps3 cutscenes instead.

Ryan, that was fast.  Do you always play through games that fast or is this on just short?   Are you playing on the PS3?

I'm still on the fence on getting the PS3 version or the Wii version.

No kidding. I am getting my ass kicked by Kota. I have died 5-6 times. I get him down to almost nothing and then I can't beat him. That and how do I go back to levels to ensure that I have all the Holocubes and everything else?
