Epic’s Paragon introduces a pipe-smoking Ivan Ooze

New characters unveiled

There is some barrier to entry for the (wildly successful) MOBA genre. Epic’s (Gears of War) shot at the genre, Paragon, is coming to consoles (PS4 and PC) and is a pulled in third-person game following MOBA principles, which means it could readily appeal to some folks who don’t find top-down click click clicking that engaging.

Plus, seeing more gameplay after the initial announcement in December — damn, this is a good-looking game. Epic hasn’t lost its touch there. Though this time there’s way more color and life; look at the normal-sized necks.

And a vaguely Asian Ivan Ooze smoking a pipe.
