Master of Orion 1 and 2 now available on GOG.com

Well you can guess that I was pleasantly surprised when GOG.com finally revealed today that not only do they have one of the Master of Orions for sale but BOTH and for $5.99 USD! Definitely a bargain to good to pass-up (especially considering this is the only legitimate way of acquiring it in Australia).

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, Master of Orion is the grand-daddy of 4X sci-fi strategy games and both the original and sequel are classics (MOO3 not so much). If you like games like Civilization but want a sci-fi setting, it won't hurt to check these games out (well not much, it's only $5.99 after all!)

Master of Orion coming to GOG.com?

ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG! Looks like Master of Orion is coming to GOG.com - question is, which one? Hopefully not MOO3 since that is accepted almost universally by MOO fans as coaster-material. MOO2 is my favourite so hopefully that's the one but I'd be just as satisfied with MOO1 as well :).

Deathspank coming to consoles, but how about PC?

Apparently Ron Gilbert's Deathspank is already complete and is coming to the consoles thanks to a publishing deal with EA (yes you heard right)! Seems like EA are being smart and recognising potential talent when they see it (in Ron Gilbert's case he's already a veteran to the gaming industry, so you think it'd be a safe bet).

Anyway no news unfortunately about a PC release though, which many posters to the blog are quite disappointed about.

M.U.D. TV - already available?

A game that must have one of the worst marketing campaigns in Australia ever, may actually already be released. Games Warehouse already have the game for sale even though it's disappeared off of Steam's games catalogue (at least it seems so). Maybe Games Warehouse is exploiting their deal with Kalypso Media to the fullest? We can only hope.

I actually only noticed recently there's a demo for the game as well so I might try this out first to see if it's worth pursuing.

APB website gets an update

Still no concrete release date, but lots of awesome videos about the game thanks to a new update to the website. It looks like the game is still set to be subscription-free which is a plus.
