Darth Vader started the rebellion!!

Begin Holonet Feed .......

Rumors are spreading across the galaxy of records that indicate the rebellion was actually the idea of the Dark Lord himself, Darth Vader.

Early rumors indicated that Vader started the rebellion in an attempt to disguise his own agenda to overthrow the Emperor.

However there are reports now surfacing that the Rebellion was actually the idea of the Emperor himself. The plan was to cause a meeting of the rebels so they could be captured.

So Vader on behalf of the Emperor set cogs turning that would eventually lead to a secret meeting of Bail Organa, Mon Mothma, Garm Bel Iblis and the start of the Rebellion.

Reports say they were captured by none other then Darth Vader himself, but freed buy a brave young Jedi who gave his life for them and for the rebellion.

The Force Unleashed Xbox 360 Lockup Fix

So you played a few levels of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on your Xbox 360 then got bored or for whatever reason you put another game in your Xbox 360 and now when you go to play TFU again, you get a Black screen and nothing else.

Way to go guys at LucasArts! I guess you just assumed that people would play your game from start to finish without ejecting the disc?

Anyway, the bug is bad, but there is a fix for now.

Start up your Xbox 360 while holding down the A button (clears cookies).
Next go to the System Tag on your Xbox 360 Dashboard.
Select Memory, then select Hard Drive and press "Y" to view the device options.
Trust me, this is ok to do, it's scary, but it works.
On your controller,
press and release "X",
press and release "X" again
press and release the Left Bumper (upper left)
press and release the Right Bumper (upper right)
press and release "X"
press and release "X" again.
A box will come up and prompt you do do "System Maintenance".
Press "A"
This will clear the cache on your Xbox 360 Hard Drive.

You can now play the game. It appears to be fine as long as you leave the CD in the drive.
I haven't tried playing something else that is saved on the disk to see if that messes it up too.

Hopefully LucasArts will release a fix for it soon. But I'm doubtful since they don't even seem to be acknowledging that there is a problem in the first place.

I'm seeing posts now that say to delete the demo before you install the full version of the game and you won't have the problem.

Sweet! So I sat down last night and got my Force Unleashed!
To start off, I was glad to see they had fixed the little glitches that existed in the demo (sounds out of sync, skip during Vader talking to apprentice, etc).
And playing Darth Vader was AWESOME.
I did find it a little strange that they let you play the first level as the most powerful force wielder in the Galaxy, then they teach you how to use the controls. Good thing I had played the demo and new what did what. Although I truly believe that you could just walk Vader through the map mashing buttons blindly and survived just fine.

Anyway, when I got to the Tie Factory I was pleased to find out it was not exactly like the Demo. For once MTV was right (Article). The last time I agreed with MTV, I ended up on True Life!

Now unlike so many others, I'm not rusing through this game. I'm playing it slow and enjoying it.
I also bought the novelization of the game and I'm looking forward to reading it.

I just can't decide if I should read first and then play, or vice versa.

Got my Force to Unleash!

Stopped by Wally-World this morning and got my unreserved copy of Force Unleashed.
I love the way every Game-Stop and EB-Games was trying to get you to reserve a copy of the game. There were 50 copies at the one Walmart I went to.

Anyway, I haven't got to play it yet and the reviews seem mixed.
We will see........
