Latest Humble Bundle has Batman and F.E.A.R.

Are people still annoyed that Humble Bundle has expanded its scope to feature AAA games? I found the practice a little weird at first, but hey, if it means steep discounts on substantial games and the charity component is in ...

Console MOBA Guardians of Middle-earth coming to PC

Monolith took a crack at making a multiplayer online battle arena experience for consoles with Guardians of Middle-earth. It was an admirable attempt -- and I enjoyed the game quite a lot for what it was, which was a trimmed...

Gloin-Hit! Monolith announces newest playable character

PlayStation Plus offers up free Guardians of Middle-earth
by Jordan Devore

Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members can nab Monolith's console-exclusive MOBA, Guardians of Middle-Earth, for free. A less-than-active community made it difficult for me to play the Xbox Live Arcade version not long after launch, and I have to imagine things aren't much different here. Hopefully the promo will give the game a nice boost, because it really is worth checking out for a few hours. (And possibly many, many more.)

Rounding out the list, Plus subscribers can also save on the remake of Karateka ($5.00), a procedurally-generated shoot-'em-up called Big Sky Infinity with PS3/Vita cross-buy functionality ($5.99), and the exploration-centric Knytt Underground ($5.00).

Review: Guardians of Middle-earth
by Allistair Pinsof

“How dare you? HOW DARE YOU! How dare you review a Lord of the Rings game without having every film box set in a display case! HOW DARE YOU review a MOBA without having been yelled at and debased by 12-year-olds for more than 200 hours! HOW DARE YOU!! HOOOOW DAAAREEE YOU, SIR!!”

I’ve read your complaints about my Guardians of Middle-earth impressions post. It’s true that I am no Lord of the Things and I often confuse MOBA with Boba tea, but, nonetheless, I have put some time into GoMe (GO ME!!!) and have some serious thoughts on the game that should speak to fans and non-fans of LotR and MOBAs alike.

Guardians of Middle-earth impressions

MOBA and LOTR: two four-letter acronyms that mean nothing to most people but a whole lot to some. Warner Bros. Interactive is hoping that there is overlap between the two and that this overlap will occur on consoles, where...
