Feature: Orion's Belch

Master Of Orion review

Master of Orion [official site] and its sequel (the less said about the third entry, the better) spawned a horde of 4X and space strategy fanatics, sending them out into the galaxy to explore, expand, exploit and exterminate. Wildly ambitious, full of fascinating aliens to meet and kill – they’re rightly hailed as classics with a legacy that continues even two decades later. Death to…

Blastoff! Master Of Orion Leaves Early Access

Master of Orion [official site] released in full this week, leaving early access with a launch day patch to ensure things got off to the right start. It's a revival of Simtex's original interstellar 4X strategy games, and was developed by NGD Studios under the watchful gaze of some of the series' initial development team. Rather than a pure remake, Master of Orion stands on…

Master of Orion: A Hands-Off Peek

Remake or reboot? That's the question I asked Jacob Beucler, director of global operations at Wargaming during an E3 demonstration of Master of Orion [official site]. "Definitely a reboot," he says. "We're taking things very seriously in terms of what made this franchise great." By this he means Master of Orion and its first sequel, not the curious but problematic Master of Orion 3 (which…

World Of Tanks Publisher Working On Master Of Orion

I'd entirely forgotten that Wargming.net, publisher of the World of WarVehicles games, had acquired the rights to the Master of Orion and Total Annihilation licenses back in 2013, so when the news of a Master of Orion reboot arrived this morning I was taken aback. "What?" I said. "Who?" I didn't ask why though because I can fully understand the desire to revisit one of…

Oh Man, More Zombies: Bunch Of Heroes

You know Left 4 Dead? 4 player co-op zombieshoots? Imagine that from a top-down perspective, with over the top cartoon artwork and the zombies assault being masterminded by aliens, and I suppose you kinda have Bunch of Heroes. The download-only title was announced this weekend, scheduled for summer 2011. Full press release and trailer after the jump. Maybe THIS game will have that feature I…
