We're trying something different this week with our analysis of the week's best gaming deals. We're going to present them in one, long, run-on sentence that may or may not be readable. So, here we go ...
There's a free t-shirt with a Force Unleashed purchase at Best Buy and over at Circuit City they have a free t-shirt and $5 gift card with Force Unleashed, free t-shirt with Rock Band 2, 10% off all Rock Band accessories, Gears PC for $15, $5 off a 12-month Xbox Live subscription, and $10 off a wireless adapter which, again, are ALL deals at Circuit City with absolutely nothing going on at Target this week. PHEW! Deep breath and now it's time to pass out on the kitchen floor.
This week, the usually Xbox 360 deal-lacking Toys R Us stores are holding a pretty solid week long sale where, for their entire 360 catalog, they're holding a Buy 1 Get 1 half off sale. On their entire catalog! That's pretty dandy ... you know, just saying. Next up, at Circuit City, they have GH: Aerosmith (game only) for $50, GHIII (game only) for $40 and are giving away a $10 gift card with purchase of SoulCalibur IV. This week at Best Buy, they have Quake Wars for $40 as well as a pre-order offer for EndWar to receive a beta invite and a pre-order offer to receive Infinite Undiscovery foil packaging. That's it from Best Buy. Finally, Target's one 360 deal is a free The Force Unleashed wall graphic with pre-order. Happy shopping!

Gallery: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Question. What do you get when you mix the powerful Havoc physics engine, the Euphoria AI engine and a pinch of digital molecular matter technology? Well, in Lucas Arts' case, you get a game that goes by the name of Star Wars: Force Unleashed and its freakin' amazing gameplay.
Embedded above is a a tech demo video where you can witness how Force Unleashed masterly blends each engine, each program and each effect into one cohesive gameplay experience. It's crazy cool. It's crazy crazy. It'll make your jaw drop. Watch as glass shatters, AI grabs onto the nearest object when lifted into the air and you'll see the entire environment breaks at its seams. Just watch and be awe-struck.
