Epic is opening up Paragon's beta on August 16

I'm not necessarily looking for another MOBA, but Paragon has made the rounds among enough friends who have had decent things to say about it (even Steven!) that I'll have to give it a look eventually. The game hits open beta for PC and Pla...   read

Medivh is one tricky asshole in Heroes of the Storm

Very few characters come into Heroes of the Storm and severely shake up the meta. Sure, you have powerhouses like Li Ming and Tracer that get banned often near their launch, but it's rare to see a support or otherwise entirely unique role e...   read

Heroes of the Storm turns one year old today

It's wild to think that Heroes of the Storm launched one year ago. In that time, it has become my go-to MOBA, and I have a hard time picturing anything else in the genre pulling me away. Part of that is the appeal of playing as familiar Bli...   read

League of Legends will have countermeasures soon for the dreaded 4v5 problem

Every MOBA fan knows the pain of having someone go AFK for leaving right at the start of a potentially hour-long match. Even with a surrender option (usually at the 15 minute mark) it can be a pain, and it's plagued the genre for years. Tha...   read

Gigantic is no longer an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive
