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.
Apparently it is video day here at NAHQ and I’m sharing yet another new video game trailer posted today, by Bioware this time. If you don’t want ANY spoilers (a-la Scott) then I recommend not watching this at all, otherwise enjoy this little segment of gorgeous combat footage. Although there are some weird cutaways that make me wonder about how much of “in game” this actually is.
