Orcs Must Die! Unchained refocuses on classic PvE

Orcs Must Die! Unchained [official site] has launched a huge update taking the tower defense closer to its roots. The unpopular PvP mode is gone, for starters, which devs Robot Entertainment say is so they can "fully focus on bringing back the classic Orcs Must Die gameplay that players thought was missing in OMD!U". Smashing! I enjoyed the earlier games, with their mix of building…

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Now More Jumbo, Adds 3 Games

Last week we wrote about the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2, because it was the best haul of games we'd seen in a Humble Bundle in a little while. Now that bundle has expanded as planned, and the three new games added are all good too. Pay more than the average of $6.62/£4 and you'll now receive Legend of Grimrock, PixelJunk Eden and Orcs Must Die!…

Orcs Must Go F2P – Orcs Must Die! Unchained

I feel like life has dealt orcs a pretty unfair hand. I'm not just referring to the insidious, discriminatory presumption that they must be villains of the lowest caliber, either. It's all "musts" with the poor green giants. Orcs must fight, orcs must die, orcs must be back from the school dance by 11 or so help me they are grounded from here to kingdom…

Feature: Oh No More Orcs

Orcs Must Die 2 review

Perhaps the pack-leader of the recent 'do x to fantasy/sci-fi staple y' game name trend, Robot Entertainment's Orcs Must Die was a giddy, gory carnival of greenskin slaughter in a tower defence meets Diablo kind of way. A mere nine months later, we get the sequel. Can such cheekiness be justified? You have two ways of potentially finding out before you buy it. A) play…

Orcs Will Die On July 30, For They Must

A trench-coat-clad detective emerges from a thick late night fog. He spots his partner - a smaller, more plainly dressed man - standing near a small bridge between two rocky cliffs. And also a pile of dead orc bodies. "What was the official time of death?" the detective asks grimly, not even bothering to greet his protege. "Midnight or somewhere thereabouts. July 30," the young…

Why, Robot: No Plans for Orcs Must Die 2 Mod Support

After Orcs Must Die made an oh-so-straightforward name for itself with a multiplatform release, it was bit odd - though certainly not unappreciated - to see the second of its orc-slaying lineage go PC-only. But then I began to imagine the possibilities afforded by legally binding, exploding-collar-enforced commitment to our benevolent platform of choice. Custom levels, all sorts of off-the-wall player created traps, genre-twisting overhauls…

Orcward Manoeuvres In Death: Orcs Must Die! 2

Orcs Must Die, Shoot Many Robots, Kill All Zombies... A trend emerges, and I'm not entirely sure I'm down with so many prosaic game titles. Especially when they're all so violent. Can't we have Hug Many Cats, Cake Must Be Eaten, Visit All Museums? Until then, we shall make do with Orcs Must Die! 2, which will slaughter its way towards our PCs' hard drives…
