It's the start of a new month, and you know what that means: it's time for another GC9X vote! July is heralded by a trio of tactics focused titles. Follow the break for more info on this month's games.
Master of Orion (PC-DOS)
Master of Orion, or MOO for short, is a turn-based 4X space strategy game where the name of the game is galactic dominion - or galactic peace if you're into that sort of thing. The series is considered to be a classic of the genre, with the sequel, Master of Orion 2, being the most popular entry in the franchise. The first two games can be bought together on GOG.com.
Ogre Battle 64 (N64)
Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber is apparently the only entry in the series whose subtitle is not taken from a Queen song. How do I know this? Because wikipedia says so! In any case, Ogre Battle 64 is the third entry in Yasumi Matsuno's long running strategy RPG saga.
Treasure Hunter G (SNES)
Treasure Hunter G is a strategy RPG developed by Sting, who have their very own HG101 article chronicling a few of their more notable titles. While Treasure Hunter G came up for vote on a previous GC9X, it did not receive enough votes to win. It seems the randomizer has given it a second chance!
Voting will last until July 5th at 10:30 PM EST and is open to anyone with a HG101 forum's account. Box art images for this month's games courtesy of MobyGames.
