Most games these days seem to have a supported "shelf-life" of about two years. That time is even shorter if the game is pretty much universally billed as "one of the worst games ever." But that didn't stop the developers at Spiral Game Studios and TREK Industries when ORION: Dino Beatdown was released....

The rename comes with a hefty update featuring remastered classes and worlds. In co-op, open world, PVPVE, or duel modes, you can face off against each other, against dinos, or play as ten different dinos yourself. Legit, you can play as a dinosaur in co-op mode, for just a dollar.

Chances are you are not alone if you haven't heard of Orion: Dino Beatdown. A budgeted PC title that was released last year, Orion is a class-based cooperative game in which you survive hordes of dinosaurs using high tech weaponry. You can team up with up to four other players online to duke it out with prehistoric monstrosities. Sounds fun and different, right? Well, sad to say, we did not enjoy the game very much at all, giving it a very low score. Certainly the game was not recommended for play. To check out our review, take a look here.

Several of the Co-Optimus staff were stoked for Spiral game Studios' Orion: Dino Beatdown prior to its release. Cooperative combat against carnivorous dinosaurs - how could you go wrong? Yet as Jeff Goldblum would've predicted, things did go awry at launch (presumably thanks to the fat guy from Seinfeld). The game released incredibly buggy and undercooked, prompting a necessarily harsh co-op review.

Orion: Dino Beatdown, the co-op-centric first-person dinosaur shooter, debuts on Steam in just a few more days. To help train the next generation of dinosaur hunters, indie developer Spiral Game Studios has released one last video documentary to tease the game before its release. Give it a watch (or simply read on) to find out about the game's worlds and the repitllian beasties that will inhabit them.

Fans of first-person shooters and dinosaurs alike eagerly await Orion: Dino Beatdown, which was scheduled to debut on Steam this Friday. The wait just got two weeks longer, as Orion's release date has been pushed back to Friday, May 4. A little waiting never hurt anybody, right?

Orion: Dino Beatdown, a promising co-op 1st-person shooter, comes to Steam and OnLive this Friday. If you're like me and have long felt the urge to deliver beatings of a downward variety to hordes of terrible lizards, this will seem like a long week. Thankfully developer Spiral Studios has released a new video documentary and handful of screenshots for their anti-dino shooter that may PC tide gamers over until release day.

Orion: Dino Beatdown has a lot of things going for it - mainly dinosaurs and beatdowns. There really isn't much else I could ask for. Well, maybe some bacon and breasts, but I have yet to find the one game that can properly contain the four cornerstones of my adolescence.

Humans versus dinosaurs co-op games are almost as rare as real, live dinosaurs. There's Capcom's arcade classic Cadillacs and Dinosaurs and the most recent, slightly disappointing Turok, and that's it. That will change next month when indie developer Spiral Game Studios releases Orion: Dino Beatdown for PC. Up to 5 human players will be able to take on hoardes of terrible lizards in this fast-paced first-person shooter. Did I mention our side gets jetpacks and vehicles too?
