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.
It’s nice to be home from PAX, but boy do I have a lot of catching up to do. While I was away I got wind that a Russian Mass Effect fan had taken our interview with Ali Hillis and plopped it up YouTube complete with a Russian translation. Being sort of blown away at the effort and time it must have taken to make these videos, I decided to share them all with you here on the site. The video also begins with a rather well done Liara music video that you should all check out. Hat’s off to you “DisposableTool” whoever you may be.
Подкаст с Али Хиллис!!
