Reports of Clippy's demise are greatly exaggerated

The much maligned (to put it politely) user assistance avatar from Microsoft has returned in the training video game "Ribbon Hero 2: Clippy's Second Chance."

Ribbon Hero is an innovative achievement-based game for learning how to use the new UI in Microsoft Office. It's a free download for Windows users. See Read Write Web's discussion for a good overview and video walk-through. From an instructional perspective, there's a lot to like and learn from.
