Orion: Dino Horde Controversies

Kotaku has a discussion of Orion: Dino Horde, a new version of Orion: Dino Beatdown that's now available on Steam. Their story is titled "Terrible Video Game Gets A "Sequel", And Not Everyone's Happy About It," discussing bad blood that exists from the development of Orion: Dino Beatdown over public firings of team members, and complaints from contractors not getting paid. The game also got poor review scores, hence their "terrible video game" characterization, which plays into a story on Eurogamer which discusses how some of the players who savaged the original game were outraged to find it seemingly getting a second chance on Metacritic, saying Orion: Dino Horde was not a new game, but rather a patched version of the original. This turned out to be a valid complaint in the eyes of Metacritic, who have since removed the new listing, as explained by Metacritic boss Marc Doyle: "As with any game that has been patched or improved over the weeks and months following its initial release and critical reception, those initial reviews follow the game."
