Full disclosure, when I first booked my appointment to check out Motiga’s Gigantic most of the folks I talked to wondered why I wanted to check out “yet another” MOBA title. Due to the insane success of free to play MOBA titles such as League of Legends and Dawn of the Ancients 2, designing the next great MOBA has become a quest of sorts for developers everywhere, and for good reason, success means a whole lot of cash and quite a bit of glory. After about five minutes with Gigantic I was blown away with how unique a specimen it really was and may have actually had more Team Fortress in its DNA than League of Legends. Gigantic is a tactical class based action game at its core, and it turns out its core is made of gold.
Like a festering rad-scorpion bite, Fallout is the gift that keeps on giving. If you’re a fan of post-apocalyptic exploration and blowing things up the Fallout series is probably one of your favorites. Earlier this morning Obsidian and Bethesda just graced us with some new screens of their upcoming Fallout New Vegas DLC: Old World Blues. We’re also are providing a clip from Qore that shows off what characters Veronica Belmont will be playing in the DLC (hint: one is a light switch).
Plot: Although we don’t know a lot so far, it has been confirmed that “the courier (that’s you)” will take a trip to an abandoned science facility where old world scientists are conducting strange experiments on everything with a heart beat. “Old World Blues,” the third DLC pack for the game along with Dead Money and Honest Hearts — arrives for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on July 19.
