New Cartoon Network Special

Set Your VCR, DVR, or TIVO to record Cartoon Network at 7 EST / 6 CST, as it will be holding a special Star Wars Special: Revenge Of the Brick.

With the launch of the Lego Star Wars video game series, Cartoon Network, LEGO and the Star Wars Franchise have all stepped in to create an animated special with the release of Episode 3 around the corner (and about 2 blocks down )

The commercial first caught my eye during an episode of Dragonball GT. And I must say, after playing LEGO Star Wars, Revenge of the Brick should be... interesting.

Yea, its out for all major platforms (PC, PS2, X-BOX) and its not too bad considering that its Star Wars set in the LEGO universe, or it is the other way around??? but yea, the game is pretty good, and I cant wait for Revenge of the Sith and Revenge of the Brick.

I kinda have mixed feelings, the title sounds corny but then again it may shed some light on different things in the movie that havn't been leaked.(If there's any.)

I dont know. The game sounds like its trying to convince 10 and under kids to get the game. Im going to go off tradtion right here but I think the game and maybe even the special event might be a little well "Kidish".

Of course thats from a first glance. I need to see and play it to know for sure.

Well, apparently, someone misinformed the programmers at Cartoon Network, because as of 6:07CST/7:07 EST, Cartoon Network is showing some garbage called Fosters Home of the Imaginary, and NOT the cartoon network special that they themself (CARTOON NETWORK) advertised. I have already called LEGO group customer service (didnt do much good since its the weekend), and I will contact Cartoon Network and report false advertising and that they need to get their crap together if they want to continue in the media business.

no warez discussion please* [...] i will be watching it in a few moments.

*edit* just watched it, and i must say that it's one of the most random 5 minute things i've ever seen. it doesn't go along with the movie at all. it starts with a space battle above kashyyyk (huh...) and then yoda, mace, ani, obi, etc, all fight down on kashyyyk.....um....what? no.......so yea, it doesn't really go along with the movie....dooku (should be dead...) shows up at one point...neat, but definitely not official...:-p

Actually, upon further investigation and awesome research on my part, I discovered that what cartoon network did was show the intro credits to Foster's and THEN they did the Star Wars Special. So despite getting the chance to see it, I am still irrate that Cartoon Network did such a thing. They advertise it as being this regular special, and then they go and superimpose it into another show. I felt that the ad was misleading and that it didnt specify how it was going to be shown.

Comical relief probably. I thought that the best scenes were the
spoiler:
Darth Vader Orchestra, Picture of Anakin/Obi-wan, and Yoda laughing before fighting on Kashyyysk, and Greivous Attenna.


Since the file is freely available (now), I have uploaded a high quality version

Revenge of the Brick (HQ) (60Mb)

Coupes. wasnt aware that the file would eventually be available on the official site for free. Plus the site you linked to is a site where warez does happen. I merely re-directed people away from that site and made just the video available.

Direct linking to a freely distributed file is fine. To a dedicated warez site however, is not.

Well, from a brief look at the site, the only non-warez file there was the Revenge of the Brick file.

His link that coupes. yoinked was just to the site itself and not a direct link (if I remember correctly)

I think your forgetting this is for kids. My 10 year old nephew loved it and he was supposed to it was for him. We watch it because it's Star Wars but it was meant for kids.

Just like the SW Lego game. Even if adult SW fans played it because it was the first game with Ep 1, 2 & 3 in it doesn't mean it's for adults. It had goofy jokes and was quite corny. Everything kids love. While I played it I kept thinking this game would really rock if they made an adult version.

For god's sake, the movie that came on right before it was pokemon. That should tell you something.

Yea, anything before 10pm CST is not to be viewed as anything but shows geared towards kids 12 and under. Now shows after 10PM CST are good to watch, like Robot Chicken, Family Guy, Dragonball GT (, etc

I thought that the special was pretty cool - loads of laughs!

Also wanted to share the reviews I had done for LEGO Star Wars, the PC and GBA versions.

A snippet:
Quote:
This is the most pure fun I have had playing a game in some time. I figured this for a cute little children's game I'd enjoy a bit and then hand off to my kids. The game greatly exceeded my expectations, and now after dominating it entirely, I'm finally sharing it with my kids. Any developers making family-friendly and/or licensed games needs to play this game with some kids at their side and take some notes.
Check it out here.


This time I review the GBA version of LEGO Star Wars. I had noted before that the GBA version pales in comparison to the excellent PC version, and I detail that here.

I pose the question:
Quote:
Can LEGO Star Wars manage to construct a lightsaber on the GBA without anyone getting hurt?
No.

Next will be my first DS review ... for the Episode III game - already looking to be better than the LEGO Star Wars GBA game.
