The Bards Tale

bardstale The Bard's Tale is a new action/role playing game for PS2, XBox, Gamecube, PC (ahhhh what about Mac, dangit?) that is set in Orkney Islands. An Orkney Islands with trees and vampires, but Orkney nonetheless. How nice to see our little islands get so much cred in the gaming world!!!
It sounds like a spiritual adventure of Celtic pilgrimage but alas, a Gamestop Review claims that "the Bard is not interested in saving the world, his humble motivations are strictly “coin and cleavage.”"
On second thoughts, forget the game. Just come up here yourself and have your own adventure. In the meantime, Lord of the Rings: The Third Age comes out Nov 5th and would be a better buy. Unless you lived in Orkney.
