The next great challenge for the industry might be turning the PC into a bastion of shooting ancient dinosaurs in the maw with plenty of bullets and perhaps a rocket or two. The latest game vying to fill that gap is Orion: Dino Horde, a more robust followup to Spiral's shakily launched Dino Beatdown co-op shooter from last year. Along with continuing the same mode of class-based co-op against waves of scaly assailants, Dino Horde also brings 5 vs. 5 competitive matches with one team channeling their inner Skorpiovenator.

Orion: Dino Beatdown, 5-player open world co-op survival shooter with dinosaurs and jetpacks

In our list of ways to get around in videogames, jet packs rank pretty high. In our list of things we'd quite like to kill in games, dinosaurs are also pretty high. That makes it well worth mentioning the imminent arrival of Orion: Dino Beatdown, a game about flying around in jetpacks beating down dinosaurs in an open world battle for survival. It's made by Spiral Games, and looks like a nice, budget interim release while they continue work on their big multiplayer shooter Orion: Prelude.
