What gives with all the titles that have players attempting to get rats out or keep rats out?

It's the new overexploited theme. Soon it will be Egyptian Rats, Renaissance Trader Rats, WWII Rats, Medieval Rats, Fantasy Rats, and Rat Wargames.

With the amount of goods being shipped by Eurogamers over the last few years, it had to happen eventually.

No, no, no, this is not the Year of the Rat. Year of the Rat is 2008. This is the Year of the Dog. So please everyone, put away Hameln and Notre Dame for two years and play Walk the Dogs or A Dog's Life instead. Thank you for your cooperation.

Ah, the diabolical Dice … a word of caution; don't throw them when you're alone. The fiends lack loyalty, and their notion of nourishment is quite disturbing.

Darn...I was getting excited breakout the ol' cassette player, my "Out of the Cellar" LP and listen to "Round and Round" and "Wanted Man" again. It's been a long time since I heard those songs.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
For those not in the know...I'm talking about Ratt, the 80's poser hair band
