MOO3 Gold

The official Master of Orion 3 website announced that the game has finally gone gold. It should hit stores in about a month. The press release has a few more details. I'm sure that The Master will nearly wet himself when he hears this. Thanks Blue.

The Master comments: !!! BUSTIN' OUT THE HAPPY DANCE !!!
