XBox 360 Revealed on MTV

Microsoft got Elijah Wood and The Killers to help them show off the XBox 360 on MTV tonight. It seems to have some cool features and impressive specs, but the look doesn't do anything for me. Of course, it's not really the look that matters, at least it shouldn't matter. It's the games. I'll give MS this, they know how to hit their core demographic.

J.t.Qbe comments: The only reason I have any interest is because of the upcoming Elder Scrolls game...and I probably will never have time to play it anyway. I got the Xbox primarily for Morrowind and don't have time to play that either.

Lego Star Wars (PS2) Review

Believe it or not, here's some original content from The Haus! I recently completed the PS2 version of Lego Star Wars and wrote up a review for your reading pleasure. Here's a snip to whet your appetite.

The absolute best feature for my money is the game's drop-in/drop-out co-op mode. At any point, someone can grab the other controller, take over one of the other characters, and battle the forces of evil with you. After that, all they have to do is drop-out and the game continues seamlessly in single player. Very slick. It's a lot of fun to play with my kids, even though it introduces some weird camera problems (more on this later). My son and I were blasting through Episode I as Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, respectively. He even referred to me as "My Master," as if we had stepped into the movies. For those of you who work for social services, he normally just calls me "Daddy."
