Interplay's original Bard's Tale trilogy was a little before my time. With the first game launching in 1985, when I was two years old, I wasn't quite ready to crunch numbers and map my own dungeons.

Scratching Eyes Out: Blade Kitten

So it seems that Atari are going to insist that side-scrolling action platformers are a thing that can happen, by announcing Blade Kitten. Atari say: "Players will jump right in and easily begin exploring and fighting their way through 19 levels, including three exploration levels with Noot (a rideable alien mount). Blade Kitten also features straight forward gameplay mechanics, intuitive “scramble style” exploration, fully voiced…

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes (Phew!)

LucasArts have announced that they're making another game of their Clone Wars animated series, and this one is headed to PC. It's called Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes and it's an action game featuring the exploits of a Jedi and a Clone Trooper. It does sound a lot like they're taking their cues from the success of Lego Star Wars, with the game…
