Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com

Anyone else watch the livestream of this awesome, historic event? Twitter was basically one giant nerdgasm last night. You can keep up with Curiosity and all its incredible discoveries by following @MarsCuriosity.

Kinect Star Wars is easily the most anticipated Kinect game yet. I know my Kinect has been gathering dust waiting for its release. Frustratingly, the release date was pushed from late 2011 to early 2012 with Amazon now listing the official release date as April 3rd. And dammit, if Microsoft and LucasArts know what’s good for them I will have the game in my hands come April. I need to pretend I’m a Jedi and look like a fool while doing it!

We’ve only been able to see bits and pieces of the game thanks to trailers and the E3 presentation, but this video of a game demonstration reveals more of what kind of gameplay will be available. In addition to being able to weild the force players can pod race (1:07 mark), rampage through Mos Eisley as a rancor (2:45) and dance with slave girls in Jabba’s Palace (3:40).

Yup, there is a dancing component a la Just Dance or Dance Central. And you thought the lightsaber fighting would make you look like you’re spasming like the Star Wars kid.

Let’s be honest here, there is one reason and one reason only to include Leia in her metal slave bikini dancing. Fan service. Thanknyou LucasArts, you know what 13 year old boys want more than lightsabers and mind powers.

Me? I’m way more excited to tear shit up as a rancor! I think that’s the most ingenius bit of extra gameplay I’ve seen yet!
