Dark Talon Champion Strategy Tips
These guys are cheap and fast – perfect for teaming up with some massive dragons to get their attack bonus and so they can run around and do the little things that the dragons are too busy to do, like changing the TV channel and running to 7-11 for snacks. Use these guys to grab scoring zones early on, then sneak them into big battles for a few free hits while your opponent is too busy with bigger monsters to smash them into jam!
Transformers Movie = TRANSFORMERS: The Game
The Autobots and Decepticons bring their war to our planet on July 4, 2007 with the big-budget, live-action Transformers movie. The classic cartoon robots are also hitting the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PC, PSP and DS with TRANSFORMERS: The Game. Not only can you play as a heroic Autobot and save the day, you can also play as a villainous Decepticon on a mission to lay waste to the Earth. Either way, it’s serious destruction as you blast everything to bits as Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ironhide, Starscream, Bumblebee and more!
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Video Game
Darth Vader had a secret that he kept even from the Emperor - his apprentice! In the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed game you get to become that Force-wielding, Lightsaber-swinging apprentice in what promises to be an intense new game for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, PS2 and DS when it drops in November 2007. With incredibly realistic worlds to blast apart as you help Darth Vader hunt down the last of the Jedi, it’s going to be awesome.
Star Wars PocketModel = Space Battles
The Star Wars Miniatures: Starship Battles game kicked butt in space and now Wizkids is getting in on the awesome action with the new Star Wars PocketModel Trading Card Game. It’s like their Pirates and Rocketman games - you buy booster packs of styrene cards and build snap-together ships with them. Then you build teams of ships and battle with your friends! It’s coming in June 2007 and we’ll have more info soon!
