Following the inevitable 50% sale, the massive RPG (both in scope and size) that is Bard’s Tale just received a minor, but a welcoming update. Along with the expected bug fixes and performance upgrade, developers inXile Entertainment has added support for the Playstation 3’s SixAxis Controller.

The rather large RPG, both in gameplay and overall file size (roughly 3.5GB), by inXile Entertainment called The Bard’s Tale has gone on sale for 50% off to celebrate the company’s ten anniversary. The Bard’s Tale isn’t your standard serious RPG title either, considering your character is a rather selfish, sarcastic bard looking for gold or women, or preferably both.
I missed The Bard’s Tale when it came out in 2004, but did play it a bit through the OnLive service on my PC. I’ve missed a lot of single-player titles, mainly because my normal favorite subject (before getting my first Android, of course) is massively multiplayer titles. I’ve noticed how the number of older titles being brought back to life thanks to mobile devices and the Play market keeps rising. It’s very possible that many of these titles will be seen by a new generation and possibly have more impact than they did originally, thanks in large part to their new, portable nature. I know that I was more impressed with The Bard’s Tale this time around because I was able to hold it in my hand. What would have normally been older looking graphics now look sharp and crisp thanks to the smaller, higher-resolution screen.
[Updated] Coins and cleavage, that’s what you’re after in The Bard’s Tale, now available for Android
Yesterday we reported on a new Tegra-based game heading our way called The Bard’s Tale and that it would be arriving sometime in Q3 2012. Well what we couldn’t tell you yesterday is that it was actually slated for release today, and guess what? It’s available now on both Google Play and Tegra Zone. Developed by inXile Entertainment, this new Bard’s Tale game is, as they say,’ loosely inspired by’ the old Bard’s Tale series of games that originally started getting released back in 1985 for the Apple II.
