Bandai Namco is behind new space robot MOBA Supernova


With a twist of RTS
Feb 26
You can play Supernova today. The MOBA from developer Primal Game Studios is publisher Bandai Namco's next push into the realm of free-to-play (you'll remember the Gundam Vs-like 2-on-2 arena fighter Rise of Incarnates). Nam... read

I want more Warhammer 40K games, but not like this


~Not like this~
Feb 25
It would be laughable how many Warhammer 40,000 videogame adaptations are in active development if it weren't so sad. Still no Space Marine sequel. But there is this, a multiplayer online battle arena game called Dark Nexus ... read

League of Legends' Curse of the Sad Mummy video is depressing


Poor Amumu
Jan 28
People often chide the League of Legends series for having a silly story, but as a player I dig the character fluff. Amumu has always been one of my favorites -- a sad mummy boy who just wants to find out who he really is. In this official music video from Riot Games, you can get a glimpse into the depressing life of Amumu. Like the studio's past efforts, it's actually pretty good. read

We haven't talked about Infinite Crisis, the DC Comics-themed multiplayer online battle arena game, in a while. Truthfully, it's been fun to just look at its alternate-universe heroes and villains more than anything, what wit... read

THEY CHANGED THE DOTA 2 MAP


Nothing is sacred
Sep 23
A new Dota 2 update hit today, and THEY CHANGED EVERYTHING. Two runes. New rune. THE MAP IS DIFFERENT. Reworked Heroes. Chen can take over Ancients. Something happened to Riki, I'm not sure what exactly? THE MAP IS DIFFERENT. Did I mention that they changed the map and added a rune?  read

'A New Dawn'
Jul 22
I don't play League of Legends and I'm not sure that I ever will, but this "A New Dawn" cinematic is pretty damn cool, regardless. You don't need to know the game or its characters to enjoy it. Graves' eyebrow raise at around 3:19? Perfect. read

Help us decipher this Battleborn tweet from Gearbox's Randy Pitchford


Translator needed
Jul 08
This morning, Gearbox Software announced its next game, Battleborn, a cooperative first-person shooter that has elements traditionally found in multiplayer online battle arenas like League of Legends.
