New Master of Orion

So in much more recent news, there's a new Master of Orion game coming out! It will be available for Early Access tomorrow! Some special lucky reviewers/Let's Players already have review copies!

quill18's Let's Play:
Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:
Part 4:

(Part 3 and 4 came out this morning, so i haven't seen them yet and won't until i get home)

So far it seems like a very well done "reboot" of Master of Orion... 2.

Which makes me a little sad, since as you might have guessed from the last post what i really want is an updated Master of Orion 1. But hey, at least it's not another Master of Orion 3?

But i'll almost certainly still pick it up anyways, probably even the Early Access version, maybe even tomorrow. After all i _did_ like Master of Orion 2, even if not as much as 1. And it's not MoO 3!

(The one and only benefit of having been foolish enough to pre-order Master of Orion 3 back in the day was that it provided me with the ultimate low bar of disappointed expectations, not only for the Master of Orion series or the 4x genre, but for the entire video game industry as a whole.)
