Update: IGN has posted more details, skip to the bottom to see the run down.

I’ve always wanted to stomp around as a rancor and eat helpless individuals as they tried in vain to escape my massive. taloned claws…well Kinect Star Wars is going to make that a reality. According to Game Informer, Kinect Star Wars will feature several opportunities to roam around as a rancor with a limited amount of time to cause as much destruction as possible. You can pound the ground to knock down building and can grab people for a quick treat or a convenient smashball. There gameplay experience reports some issues with movement recognition, but they also mentioned promises of other species of rancors to be included in the game, including flying rancors.

Rancor smash!

Tsunami Causes Massive Destruction In Antarctica

August 16, 2011 at 12:26 pm | Posted in Regular Feature, Science News | Leave a comment

Today, for Science Tuesday on Roqoo Depot, I submit for your approval a short video from NASA.gov that shows the effect the March earthquake and subsequent tsunami had on the Antarctic ice shelf. In the time-lapsed narrated footage you see a chunk of ice roughly the size of Manhattan Island break away and float out to sea. It staggers the imagination how powerful that wave must have been to not only do the damage it did to the Japanese coastline but to a continent on the bottom of the world so many thousands of miles away as well.

It is a short video. Only a minute thirty seven. Watch in awe as I did.
