Master of Orion early access!

A reboot of an old favorite 4X strategy game has been added to Steam! Purchasing the game for $50 entitles you to experience the new game as it develops and the original three in the series.

Personally, MOO II and III were my favorite, I’m excited to see how this turns out!

Chrono Trigger tribute album now available

Yasunori Mitsuda’s original composition of the Chrono Trigger soundtrack is widely acclaimed as one of the best in any video game. And why not have more Chrono Trigger music? A fully licensed, 75-track tribute is now downloadable through iTunes and LOUDR.

The album is named Chronicles of Time and was produced by Nate Horsfall, the same person who produced another tribute album to Secret of Mana. Over a hundred artists worked together to complete the albums enormous track list, giving the album its varied sound through many interpretations and genres.

 

Saints Row on PSP?!

That’s right, there was a Saints Row game being developed for the PlayStation Portable. It was never released on store shelves, in fact it was cancelled several years ago. But, luck would have it that its beta version was found on a PSP devkit. Best of all, if you really want to have a go with the unfinished game, you can! The developers at Volition have made a playable ISO for anybody interested.

GameTrailers shuts down after 13 years

Before gaming web sites, magazines were the first to go. But, some times Internet sites do become defunct like 1UP or GameSpy. Yesterday, the GameTrailers.com Twitter account announced that February 8, 2016 would be its last day.

The founder and voice of the site Brandon Jones had a similar tweet. GameTrailers was a go to for trailer releases at first, but eventually grew into its own with notable staff members, its own community and shows from famous industry members like Geoff Keighley and Michael Pachter.
