Super Monday Night Combat

PAX: Super MNC is super improved

I’m a hard person to please when it comes to Monday Night Combat. After logging countless hours on the XBLA version, playing the Super MNC beta at first had been...lacking. However, after my hands-on session at PAX East just a few hours ago, I can confidently say that Super MNC has won its way into my heart. 

The folks at Uber have examined loads of feedback from their hardcore players and have been making rapid additions to the beta on a weekly basis - 31 patches in total. One of these additions includes a new Pro, Leo Da Vinci - a classic archetype with a MNC twist. He's equipped with segwaying skates, a prism beam that can heal multiple team members, and a crossbow. Leo also rocks his own turrets and an ability to take over enemy bots to detonate them at will. Pretty badass character in my book.

For those fans (like myself) who really enjoyed the tower-defense aspect of the Blitz arena in MNC, you'll be happy to know that it's coming back, but with a new name: Danger Zone. In sadder news, Mickey Cantor will not be coming back for Super MNC, however there will be two new announcers: GG Stack and Chip Valvano, who will focus on highlighting plays, deaths, tips, and overall hilarious banter during the game.

There's also a possibility of another new character to be added soon, as well as an all-new map and more taunts, weapons, and skins. The beta is still invitation-only, but they're looking to open it up to the public within the next month or so. For now, check out this all-new and exclusive Super MNC Game Overview.

So there's a game called School of Ragnorok coming out, and in it there's my new boyfriend. He's an 8 foot tall demon thing with awesome hair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ibgnjCHv24

Oh GOOD, The Flock is awful. I was hoping to break my high review score streak. (this is a joke)

So many PAX things to write. So many.

Bwahahahaha .... my helicopter now arrives in the middle of a fight blaring "Take on Me" on the loudspeakers. Metal Gear 5, 10/10. [youtube]https://youtu.be/djV11Xbc914[/youtube]

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

S Rank is so satisfying. Too bad I rarely earn it!

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.

FFXV is supposedly 10x as big as The Witcher 3. Wow ... [img]http://i.imgur.com/9tfSuxQ.png[/img] http://www.dualshockers.com/2015/09/01/final-fantasy-xv-map-size-potentially-revealed-its-roughly-an-enormous-780-square-miles/

The ending of "Return to Crookback Bog" in TW3 I got was so depressing. Wow. I think I need a break...

I'm sitting here play Metal Gear V, absolutely loving it. But in the back of my mind ... all I can think about is Mario Maker. I'm really excited for that game!

Sold a digital item on Steam, that came with a physical item, for more than the cost of the physical item. This is the second time I've done this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
