The guys over at Spiral Game Studios sure know how to get me excited for something. First off, this trailer for Orion: Dino Beatdown has that obnoxious, over-the-top announcer who calls the Tyrannosaurus rex "Sally." Then they decide to show off the jetpacks and mechs all thrown inside huge open-world levels and that was all I needed. But when I saw you could get abducted by flying dinosaurs, I just lost it.
Another small detail mentioned in the trailer was for the continued support of free DLC. The first announced pack includes the Triceratops, Argentinosaurus, and Stegosaurus dinosaurs. They're all herbivores so they shouldn't terrorize us in the game, right? Even if they do, I still want this. I want it badly. Good thing it'll be out this month on Steam and OnLive for only $9.99.
