Weekend Link-a-mania

Welcome to the weekend! Here are three current SF things we'd like to share with you. Get a coffee in and start clicking:

Item! Star Wars in Soul Calibur


The latest version of Namco's 3D beat-'em-up Soul Calibur - number four, no less - will feature as a bonus character either Yoda or Darth Vader depending on your console. PlayStation 3 owners will see Darth Vader while players with Xbox 360 will have Yoda, and both will include Vader's secret apprentice, a character to be featured in The Force Unleashed game. Find out more at the official site (thanks io9 ).

Item! Hammer Horror stamps


Next week the Royal Mail will release a set of stamps to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Carry On series and Hammer movies. They depict the posters for Carry On Sergeant (which starred Doctor Who actor William Hartnell), Carry On Cleo, Carry On Screaming, The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula, and The Mummy. Visit the Royal Mail website for more details (thanks Outpost Gallifrey ).

Item! Dungeons %26 Dragons 4th Edition launches


It's finally out! Yes, today the 4th edition of role-playing game system Dungeons %26 Dragons is upon us. The rules have been streamlined and the whole system is modular, with figurines and online elements being available to plug in or ignore as you wish. (Wired's guest blogger Michael Zenke looks at playing the tabletop game and discusses some of the online elements .) SFX will review the new releases in forthcoming issues when our experts have had time to play them.

Don't forget the most recent issue of SFX is on sale now with an exclusive look at the new X-Files movie (and free double-sided official Mulder and Scully poster).
