Conan: The (video) games begin

Conan was meant to conquer video games. The character created 75 years ago by Robert E. Howard (1906-1936) "is the sort of character that everyone, in some deep corner of their mind, wants to be, even for just a little while," says Robert Huebner of Nihilistic Software, which is making Conan, a fighting game. USA TODAY compares it and an in-development Conan online game.
