To quote: I'm here to guide you safely up the north face of episode 19. The show hits the Store this Wednesday, and in it we'll be bringing you HD video footage of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
And if you like the look of the game, celebrate by installing the free theme in this week's downloads section. You'll have to do the lightsaber noise yourself, though.
Elsewhere we take a look at the new Medal Of Honor's multiplayer mode and check out some of the hottest games heading to PS3 in 2011, including Bulletstorm, inFamous 2 and Dead Space 2. We also rate Red Dead Redemption online, plus round-up the best new VDS movies and Store content.
Over in the screenshot galleries you'll find the latest hi-res images of F1 2010, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (which we're already predicting will be way better than Neolithic Soldier) and the mighty Call Of Duty: Black Ops. We also compare Gran Turismo 5's graphics with the real world. The real world loses.

Over in the HD Reviews and Previews section, we give you the chance to put your controller down and enjoy some hi-def, Blu-ray sexiness, as we review an irate army of angels in Legion.
In Network Highlights you'll find more treats, including brilliant ModNation Racers creations, plus another batch of FIFA onion bag scorchers.

First we go hands-on with zombie sequel Dead Rising 2, slashing, drilling and electrocuting our way through a Vegas-style Casino crammed with rotting undead fleshsacks, and getting a very firm grip on the game's weapon creation system. Saw blades and a lawnmower you say? Interesting...
Then we've got previews of period underworld epic Mafia 2, including an interview with the 2K dev team, and some properly incredible footage of SEGA's awesome looking robot-and-flames shooter, Vanquish. It has a sort of Transformers noise! Amazing.
