The Millennium Falcon pulls some pretty crazy stunts in the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And while we recognize Star Wars takes place in a fictional universe, we couldn't help but get pedantic about the physics of the scene, and the effects it might have on the human body.

: Here's what Mistwalker's canceled RPG looked like

Cry On, an ill-fated role-playing game co-developed by Mistwalker and now-defunct studio Cavia, has reappeared after being put on ice six years ago.

Final Fantasy creator and Mistwalker founder Hironobu Sakaguchi shared the shelved project's original concept trailer via his seldom used YouTube channel today, showing some promising footage of a young girl and golem companion.

This marks the sixth anniversary of Cry On's cancellation in 2008, when publisher AQ Interactive announced the decision on Christmas Day, citing poor global economic conditions as the rationale.

Mistwalker has since gone on to create The Last Story and Terra Battle, whereas both Cavia and AQ Interactive have been absorbed into Japanese videogame and anime group Marvelous.

Sakaguchi's motives behind uploading the video are currently unclear, as is whether the project lives on as anything other than memory. Speaking with Destructoid back in September, Sakaguchi said "Mistwalker is just working on [Terra Battle] right now," adding the company has a fairly small team these days. Wonder if anything's changed since then.

: Review: Escape Dead Island

In my years as a freelancer and staffer at various videogame outlets, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a ton of great games. In fact, this year I had the privilege of reviewing pretty much every “AAA” game that hit stores. I also review a lot of garbage, or games that are fundamentally broken in one or more aspects. Games that only through providence made it out of QA.

I always try and remember though that every game, whether it’s an EA blockbuster or a one-man indie project, was someone’s baby. No matter what game you talk about, there is at least one guy or gal out there who put their all into it, even if the rest of the team couldn't be bothered to exert much effort. So I always try to approach criticizing a game from that angle. Escape Dead Island is a special case though.

: Sony: PlayStation Network slowly restoring service

[Update: According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony ascribes the outage to "high levels of traffic designed to disrupt connectivity and online gameplay." The company is working to resolve the issue and restore network connectivity as soon as possible.]

Sony asserts the PlayStation Network should steadily be coming back online. The announcement follows a two-day outage reportedly spurred by denial-of-service attacks.

Destructoid's attempts to connect to the network today via PS4, PS3, and Vita have thus far proved unsuccessful. Meanwhile, PlayStation Support has shown network connectivity fluctuating between "intermittently available" and "offline." Sony promises updates on the situation as soon as information becomes available.

Xbox Live managed to restore service yesterday after sustaining similar complications over the past couple days. Microsoft's network appears to be "up and running" at the time of writing.

: Review: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

The visual novel has been ubiquitous in Japan since the early ‘90s, but in the West they've never truly caught on. Whether it was the U.S.’s love for its own home-grown adventure games like Sierra’s King’s Quest, the SCUMM games by LucasArts, or the absolute pain it is to translate games from Japanese that can be over 450 English pages long, it's never been clear as to why that is. In fact, it wasn't really until the early 2000s that they finally started catching on. The Nintendo DS was the platform many English-speaking gamers experienced their first visual novel on, through none other than Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

: Vlambeer is giving away free copies of Nuclear Throne in January

Rami Ismail of Vlambeer has come up with a creative and generous way to effectively double the Nuclear Throne community while at the same time saying thanks to all those who supported the Early Access title during 2014.

As of January 1, 2015, owners of the delightful top-down shooter will receive a free, giftable copy that Ismail hopes you'll pass along to friends who in turn will provide valuable feedback as the team finishes up work on the title later in the year.

"You've become really adept Nuclear Throne players, and we want to call upon you for your help. We need new players, people that are great players, that would love Nuclear Throne, and we need them to be part of our community. We're sure you know somebody like that, and if you do, we want to ask you to invite them to the Nuclear Throne community. We need fresh eyes on the game, people that will still get decimated by Big Bandit and that will complain about the ravens in the scrapyard. We need to know how they feel about Nuclear Throne, and we need your help to reach them."

Rami's just the best, isn't he? Anyways, the offer's also good for new purchases made until January, so if you've been waiting to try it out for yourself and would enjoy having a second copy to pass along to a friend, this is your golden opportunity.

: XSEED is releasing a PSP game in January 2015

A PSP game is coming out in 2015. What a world we live in!

Brandish: The Dark Revenant is targeting an early January launch on PlayStation Network across North America, XSEED Games announced today, promising a specific date and release information for other regions at a later time.

While the classic role-playing game first came to North America in 1995 for SNES, Falcom skipped out on a western release for the 2009 PSP remake. That is, until now. Nearly five years after its Japanese debut, we will finally have an opportunity to get our hands on The Dark Revenant and see all the improvements it makes over the original.

Oh, and you needn't worry if you don't still have a PSP lying around. According to XSEED, the game should be fully compatible with both Vita and PlayStation TV.
