Unreleased Star Wars Video Games

Do you ever wonder what happens to all of those great video game ideas that never make it to production? Here are some Star Wars video games that never actually existed but it sure would be fun if they did! Star Wars The Empire Strikes Dak for Atari Pitfall! Sarlacc Edition for Atari Is it Operational? For NES Uncle Owen’s Moisture Farm Tycoon for Xbox And more! Now that we’ve had some laughs, here’s a real unreleased Star Wars video game: Super Star Wars is an unreleased platform game developed by Brain Bug that was originally supposed to be the PC port of LucasArts‘ SNES game of the same name. It all began in 1994 while most people of their team worked on another game, Lollypop. Since the SNES version of Super Star Wars was one of their favorite games and Softgold – the publisher of Lollypop – had a…

MTSBWY: Star Wars orchestra flash-mob

Now here is something you don’t’ see every day: An orchestra flash mob in the Wallrafplatz, in the center of Cologne in Germany. I have always been a huge fan of flashmobs, but I have never seen a full out orchestral flash mobs — that play the Star Wars Theme. I also love that they brought both harp and timpani. That’s dedication. We can only hope they show up at next July’s Celebration Europe II oh… And as a bonus video, I give you the newest Star Wars spoof from our old friend OneMinuteGalactica – The Awkward Awards.

MTSBWY: Droidfriend – Justin Bieber Boyfriend Parody

Teddie Films wooed us last month with The Star Wars That I Used To Know and this time they’re at it again with what is sure to be another major hit. Droidfriend pits C3-PO in a Bieber likeness putting the moves on a nice Twi’lek. What makes this an even bigger nerdgasm for us is all the extras in the background. In this video, one of the most irritating characters of the original Star Wars trilogy tackles a kindred soul in the music industry – Justin Bieber! And for those who are a bit more purist in their love of Star Wars tributes, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’re going to double up this post with an amazing musical homage below in honor of the iconic cantina scene posted by YouTube user CharlesLaurita. Enjoy! Join the forum discussion on this post

Gotye Meets Star Wars

Two internet memes collide in a galaxy far far away this week, as Star Wars and Gotye are crammed into one spoof. If that sounds crude, it actually works surprisingly well, with some pointed swipes at the Star Wars prequels and a George Lucas-alike who sings about “all the times I screwed fans over””. The Force is strong with this one, just don’t expect this to be released on Blu-ray any time soon. Join the forum discussion on this post

MTSBWY: Darth Schwarzenegger

With all the sad news of BioWare Layoffs I thought it was time for a smile. Therefor I present to you a new “may the schwartz be with you”, this time with oldie but goodie. What you are about to see, is an earlier casting of Star Wars IV: A New Hope were Arnold Schwarzenegger put a juvenile, jealous and rather perverted spin on Darth Vader’s explosive personality. George Lucas had second thoughts and cast James Earl Jones instead. Enjoy these exclusive clips from the “lost tapes” archives of Skywalker Ranch. You kids are soft… You lack deciplin! ” it’s time now to turn this mush into muscles! STOP Being such a pussy NAOW! Join the forum discussion on this post

MTSBWY: What If Yoda Spoke Normally?

The ‘Star Wars’ universe is riddle with mysteries. Did Han shoot first? How come Chewbacca doesn’t get a medal at the end of ‘A New Hope?’ And how come Yoda insists on speaking in semi-reverse order? It’s hard not to see master Yoda as a very short font of wisdom throughout the Star Wars films, but when his unique speech pattern is made to fit traditional rules, suddenly he becomes one seriously creepy little dude.

Zombie Star Wars Cosplay

This photo was taken on February 18, 2012 using a Nikon Coolpix S205. Who would survive a zombie apocalypse in a galaxy far, far away? These two might have some answers. Vill4no grabbed this awesome photo of zombie Star Wars cosplayers at Megacon 2012. This looked to be an awesome event and while this isn’t the only great photo he got, it was by far by favorite. In fact, it’s my favorite Star Wars cosplay yet! Check out his full photostream on Flickr for more great pics from the event- including more Star Wars (The Emperor, droids, dark side R2, jawas), Link, Drunk Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, Punisher, Batgirl and many more.

May the schwartz be with you: 2012 Volkswagen Game Day Commercial

It’s been 12 days since Volkswagen unleashed “The Bark Side” and started building up anticipation for the sequel to last year’s beloved “The Force” commercial. With four days to spare until Super Bowl XLVI, the car company has released an extended version of “The Dog Strikes Back.” It’s one of three 30-second VW ads that will air on game day and features not only an adorably chubby pooch but also a final-act twist worthy of “I am your father!” Watch below.

May the schwartz be with you: Return of the Jedi – Missing Elevator Scene

Footage of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in the elevator on the way to the Emperor’s throne room. Vader: So… What happened after you left Bespin? Luke: What happened? I was without a right hand for 5 hours. What kind of a father cuts off his son’s writing hand? Vader: This is Star Wars, Luke. Nobody writes anything in this universe. The only writing I ever see is that Aurebesh junk on Coruscant. Luke: Dad, what are you saying? Vader: I never learned to read, dumbass. Join the forum discussion on this post

May the schwartz be with you: Volkswagen’s ‘Star Wars’ Ad Campaign Has Gone to the Dogs

Coming off of last year’s wildly successful Star Wars themed Passat Super Bowl commercial, Volkswagen is out to continue that success once again. Ahead of the big game on February 5th, the automaker has just released this new teaser featuring another bit of Star Wars reference, only this time it features dogs and not a nine-year-old kid.You have to listen carefully (we had to listen twice to pick up on it), but the canine chorus is barking a very familiar tune. VW claims that the commercial will all make sense come game day. Until then, the teaser is a great laugh and we’ll see if this intergalactic canine bark fest can beat out last year’s fantastic young Darth Vader commercial. Join the forum discussion on this post

May the schwartz be with you: Hitler Vs Vader: The Rap Battle Rematch

Just over a year ago, we brought you the greatest Rap Battle face-off since B-Rabbit faced those other ridiculously named made-up rappers in 8 Mile, as the two darkest Dark Lords faced over across a mic, spitting ill and questioning each other’s sexual orientation and the moral integrity of one another’s mothers. And now the men behind the first video have returned with a second season of Epic Rap Battles of History, thawing out Adolf Hitler in the process for a tent-pole curtain raising rematch against Darth Vader. It all started with a teaser… And the ERB team have now posted the match-up in full. They said they’d come back bigger and better, and they weren’t lying. Who won? Well, we did. The lyrics are sharper, the style more refined and Hitler has never sounded quite so much like Eminem before, which is a good look for him. But seriously,…

MTSBWY: Cello Wars (Star Wars Parody) Lightsaber Duel – Steven Sharp Nelson

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away… Cello Wars (a Star Wars Parody) Lightsaber Duel was held. It was an epic battle, Vader plays the accordion and Chewy dances. It’s not a meeting you will soon forget. We love that these guys pulled off this very fun video and of course, had to share it with you. This is what they have to say about their feat: “We announced CELLO WARS on September 19, 2011 thinking we’d be able to deliver on our promise within a few weeks. We had NO IDEA. 70 days later, more than 7,000 frames, 72 audio tracks, 24 hours of filming through the night in front of a green screen, the most props and costumes we’ve ever used, several broken bows and strings, and over 1,000 hours of editing and rendering — we felt like we had taken on the entire EMPIRE!” It’ pretty…
