Ordinarily, we at GamesRadar like to keep things focused on games. We think you should know, however, that on March 28, accessory maker Pelican recalled about 231,000 of its Power Brick PSP battery chargers. You know, in case you bought one and don't want to potentially burn your house down.
The recall was announced after the company received complaints that the devices can overheat and actually melt their plastic casing, posing a fire hazard. One report of actual fire damage was also filed,
Okay, okay... the news on Lego Star Wars II is supposed to be all about how LucasArts is adding over 50 new characters to the already expansive 50 playable Lego Star War-riors from the first game.
