If you just squint your eyes just a little bit, you’ll almost think you’re looking at Overwatch… First person shooter, featuring colourful and varied “champions” who utilise their own unique abilities? There’s even a guy who uses a chain to hook people! Alright, that’s a little unfair. If reddit posts from Hi-Rez Studios are anything to go by, Paladins has been in some form of development since 2010 when Hi-Rez released a project called Global Agenda, the project that eventually became Paladins. Give Hi-Rez their due, they’ve been sitting on this idea for a long time. But with that out … Read More »

Battleborn didn’t get off to a great start, did it? Despite solid reviews (you can read ours right here), its thunder was stolen by the Overwatch beta that dropped just a couple of days after the game’s release, and despite being a different genre and different playstyle, it’s never managed to shake off comparisons to Blizzard’s shooter. But that doesn’t mean it’s game over for 2K’s colourful and characterful MOBA. During an earnings call, the publisher’s CEO, Strauss Zelnick, said: While the game launched to solid reviews, its performance in the market has been below our expectations. We think there … Read More »

It’s mighty morphin’ MOBA time with another round of testing for Motiga’s upcoming brawler, GIGANTIC. If you played the beta, it offers a slightly different take to its genre counterparts with a mix of simple customisations as you character levels during the game, similar to Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm, and a design-style similar to Borderlands. So if you did sign up to the beta you may want to check your emails for a possible automatic signup to the upcoming Stress Test saying: Fantastic News! You’re eligible to join us for a Gigantic stress test event taking place next weekend! This event … Read More »

Permit us to conduct somewhat of a “State of Overwatch” address, if you will. So Overwatch came out. It’s awesome, but still a work in progress like most multiplayer only games these days. Some of will come in the form of tweaks, some in the form of a new mode, but we’ll be waiting longer for one rather than the other. Let’s start with the new mode. The team at Blizzard have been working on a ranked matchmaking mode, Competitive Play, which is due to come out later this month (though someone on the Overwatch twitter accidentally said late July). … Read More »

A gorilla scientist, a shotgun wielding Grim Reaper, a cybernetic ninja, an angel, a dwarf mechanic and the world’s most hated transforming turret walk into the Temple of Osiris. As squads go, that’s a pretty good one to aspire towards… Now, seeing a team like that in any other game might cause you to channel your inner Monty Python and say “Stop that now! It’s silly!” Overwatch, however, says that’s just a normal Tuesday afternoon. Overwatch is a first person MOBA that sees you and a team of freaks with unique traits and abilities face off against other teams of … Read More »
