YouTube - AT-AT DAY AFTERNOON
"When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got... A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker." Linked everywhere, but - utterly charming.

No homosexuality in Star Wars - BioWare
"Even discussions of the ban are being locked. At the bottom of the thread "GLBT discrimination in forums?", community manager Sean Dahlberg wrote, "As I have stated before, these are terms that do not exist in Star Wars. Thread closed."" How depressing: can you really hetero-normalise an online, social, MMO? Makes me a bit angry, and I'd have thought BioWare would have been more sensitive around this. Is this Lucasarts turning the screws?

GameSetWatch - The Game Developer Archives: 'Postmortem: Star Wars: Shadows Of The Empire'
A wonderful old postmortem - on Shadows of the Empire for the N64. As a launch title, there was lots of working with unfinished hardware, prototype controllers, and SGI workstations; it's long and detailed, and a fantastic portal to a world that seems eons ago, even if it was only 12 years away.

YouTube - Uncanny Valley
30 Rock: Tracey wants to make a porn videogame. Frank tells him you can't, because of the Uncanny Valley. "Explain it to me with Star Wars". Priceless.
