Has it been 30 years? Wow! Dragon's Lair is a classic video game that arrived way back in 1983 featuring animation by former Disney animator Don Bluth.

Now, the game's making its way to PSP, that is, if United ...

Released on Blu-ray just a few weeks ago, a DS incarnation of the classic arcade/Laserdisc adventure Dragon's Lair has been announced by Digital Leisure.

Anyone around the early laserdisc scene has to remember Dragon's Lair. The game shipped with the Pioneer LD-V1000 and became an instant classic. The game wasn't as immersive as many people wanted and only offered the player a few options on how to control Dirk the Daring but even still, it was the ...

Remember Dragon's Lair? The game -- released on laserdisc in 1983 -- was notable for the quality of the on-screen visuals. Instead of blocky pixels, Dragon's Lair featured lushly drawn environments that blew away every other arcade title of the era. Just one little problem: the game's technology re...
