Unsurprisingly, Lego will be creating a set based on the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, and this is our first glimpse.

You can check out the brief first commercial for the set below, where BB8 narrowly avoids losing its head from Kylo Ren's multi-pronged lightsaber. It's all in Lego, though, so it's adorable.

YouTube commenters pretty much universally dislike Kimmel's take on folks watching others play video games online. The video has about 14 times as many thumbs down votes than it does thumbs up votes. You can check out the video below to see what you think of the sketch. We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Final Fantasy XV Arrives In 2016

about X hours ago from

At a panel today at PAX Prime 2015, Square Enix announced that the long-awaited Final Fantasy XV will be released in 2016. Square elaborated on this release window by stating that the actual release date in 2016 will be unveiled at a special event in March 2016. It's time to start guessing when we'll actually be able to take our jazzed up car for a road trip, Final Fantasy style!

Our TakeIt's tough to predict any meaningful launch windows based on this information, but at least we have confirmation that Final Fantasy  XV will arrive next year. After seeing some more of the car gameplay and features at PAX, I can honestly say I'm quite intrigued, moreso than I have been for any other "modern" Final Fantasy title.

Cliff Bleszinski Thinks Free-To-Play Games Are Like Feeding A Baby Asparagus

Cliff Bleszinski Thinks Free-To-Play Games Are Like Feeding A Baby Asparagus

Yesterday, Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski debuted his new game from Bosskey productions, a 5v5 multiplayer shooter called LawBreakers that hopes to compete with games like Team Fortress and Blizzard's upcoming Overwatch. It was revealed to be a free-to-play title prior to its official announcement, but it doesn't sound like it will be that simple.

During an interview at PAX, we spoke with Bleszinski, and the developer shared his thoughts with us about the free-to-play model. "We're still playing around with the monetization model. We want it to be positive. A lot of core gamers hear free-to-play and it's like feeding a child asparagus. There is a bad reputation to it and I get it."

Bleszinski went on to explain that LawBreakers might not be following the traditional free-to-play model, but didn't go into specifics. "Maybe someday the game will come to consoles. And we're not ready to rule out the idea that maybe if you give us $20 bucks and you can have early access and then when the game launches you get a special pack that other people pay $20 bucks for. How you do free-to-play is unique for each product, and we want do to do it in a good way that makes gamers happy. We're open to unique ideas for how we get this game to market."
