Maybe you don't know, but Star Wars: The Clone Wars is kind of a big deal. The show as been explosively popular on the Cartoon Network, and it is often the highest rated show on cable television. The TV spinoff is also spinning off a few games of its own. There have been a few hack-n-slash games that have done fairly well, there will be a new Lego Star Wars game based on theClone Wars, and soon the free-to-play MMO Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures will be eating up the hours for players of all ages.

The game will go live around the world on September 15, which is the same day that the third season premieres. Get a look at some of the minigames (including one inspired by Star Fox) after the jump.

Building Excite-ment, part 1: Excitebike

Twenty-four years ago, on October 18th, 1985, the Nintendo Entertainment System went on sale in North America for the first time, and one of the first games to accompany the revolutionary system's launch was a motocross racing game known as Excitebike. The game was actually released prior to this in Japan on November 30th, 1984, a bit over a year after the release of the NES' Japanese predecessor, the Famicom. From the outset, one could tell that Excitebike was cut from a different cloth than many of its sports-based brethren. In an era where many such games, including some of those found on Nintendo's own platform, were named simply for the sport represented (Golf, Tennis, Baseball, Ice Hockey, etc.), Excitebike was able to offer the promise of something more in name alone. Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo's R&D team went beyond simply simulating the motocross experience, allowing the game's Excitebike racers to make some fairly insane jumps, or shoot ahead of the pack with a burst of turbo speed. However, overuse of the turbo engines would cause a temperature gauge to rise, leading to the bikes overheating and stalling out. This potentially race-wrecking event could be avoided if one were to lay off the B-button throttle, or run over special arrow marks on the track that would reduce the gauge's temperature. Read More
