Carl Williams writes, "It is becoming more and more likely that we will see classic side scrolling style shooters on PC than we will on consoles. That is kind of weird if you think about it. This is a genre that was popularized on consoles such as the Nintendo NES, Sega Genesis, Playstation, etc. PC’s were, and still are to a large margin, home to first person shooters and role-playing games (think Call of Duty and Diablo III though console ports exist of both). Legacy of the Elder Star is just such a side scrolling shooter which is hitting Steam later this month. There is a twist though. It seems that there is always a twist for these things."
