Star Wars is so tied into everything these days that it’s no surprise that a few of the most recognized characters on the planet might pop up in a new fighting game. So much cooler than Spawn and Link, now Darth Vader (pictured above hitting on schoolgirls) and Yoda will…

Halo 3 Legendary Maps for Free?!?

That’s right folks. You can get the newly released Halo 3 Legendary map pack for free. So, what’s the catch? Well, the catch is that you have to pre-order Ninja Gaiden II from Circuit City. As far as catches go…that’s not too bad. You get free shipping and it beats…
