What this Game Needs is More Yoda

Click the photo above to see exclusive footage of Darth Vader and Yoda in Soulcalibur IV.
You've seen them in the movies, on lunch boxes, and even on Underoos®. Now Yoda and Darth Vader have used the mysterious licensing powers of the Force to make an appearance in the upcoming Soulcalibur IV game. Why? As Yoda might say, "Do or do not. There is no why." If you've always wondered how Darth Vader would fare against Nightmare or if you've always wanted to play matchmaker between Yoda and Ivy, here's your chance. You'll have to keep wondering about a Vader vs. Yoda scenario because Darth Vader is only available on the PS3 version and Yoda is only available on the Xbox 360 version.

We have received exclusive footage of the two characters in action in Soulcalibur IV. Visit our product pages here to get a look at the video. Soulcalibur IV is set to begin shipping June 2, which allows plenty of time for other announcements, such as the introduction of David Hasselhoff as a new character. We'll keep you posted if we hear anything else.
The Real Casey Jones Wins the Real Navy Machinima Contest

Machinima Contest winner Casey Jones with GSTV hosts Chris Burnett (l) and Jennifer Sipes (r).
If you're a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you'll remember Casey Jones as the hockey-stick-wielding vigilante sidekick to the Heroes on the Half Shell. Or if you're a fan of American folk music of the early 1900s, (and who isn't?) you might know Casey Jones as the courageous railroad engineer who sacrificed himself to save his passengers. However, we caught up with the real, live Casey Jones when he won our Machinima Contest presented by the United States Navy.

Casey, from Chico, California, used the video capture feature from SKATE to highlight some of the game's realistic skating features. He entered that video in our contest, won the grand prize, and the rest is machinimatic history. Forgoing a train trip for obvious reasons, Casey was flown to Dallas, where he attended a taping of our popular in-store GameStop TV show. While he was in Dallas, Casey enjoyed some authentic Texas cuisine, which our inside sources tell us included a side-order of "Calf Fries." He also took in a  Dallas Mavericks basketball game, and to top it off, he received a $500 gift card to GameStop. When asked what he purchased, he said, "Games of course." We would have recommended $500 worth of DS Lite Styluses, but to each his own. You can see his winning video here.
Cause of Global Warming Found: Pirates

Our No. 1 suspects for global warming? Pirates.
Nobody seems able to agree on what exactly has caused ocean temperatures to rise 0.4° F in the last 120 years. Apparently, in the 1720's, the seas became so warm, they actually began burning. From what we can gather, the culprits were pirates. If you don't believe us, then check out Pirates of the Burning Sea for PC.

Of course, more research needs to be done to determine whether there is a correlation between swashbuckling and global warming. But if we were employees of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, we'd start looking for pirates roaming around the Arctic ice shelf.

Until this mystery is solved, we're pretty sure you can enjoy Pirates of the Burning Sea without adversely affecting the environment, unless you eat a lot of gassy foods while you play.

If you pre-order Pirates of the Burning Sea before its January 21 ship date, we'll load you up with plenty of pirate booty, like your very own in-game parrot companion, an assortment of mighty sword blades and Pre-Boarding Party access to the game before it goes live for everyone else. We'll even throw in the original game soundtrack with 60 minutes of pirate music because can't think of a better way to spend an hour than listening to pirate music. It will get you in the mood for burning up the sea.
