Gigantic hits open beta at last on Xbox One and Windows 10

Thanks in large part to its vibrant art direction, Gigantic was a real attention-grabber when it first hit the scene. But how many of you ever bothered to sign up for and play the beta? Y'know, I never did! That process is easier now as th...

Gigantic is no longer an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive

If you have been wondering what's up with Gigantic as of late, I'm right there with you. These past few months, I think I've heard more about layoffs at developer Motiga than the game itself. Gigantic is still in fact coming to Xbox One and...

Matches in Gigantic should only take 15 minutes

I'm not much of a MOBA person, but I have really gotten into Heroes of the Storm as of late thanks to its snappy, streamlined design. Shorter matches are a godsend. I've also been eying Gigantic, Motiga's super pretty third-person take on t...

If you want in on the Xbox One Gigantic beta, sign up now

There are people out there who will outright not give entire genres a chance -- heck "I'm out, it's a MOBA" is one of the most common phrases uttered on the internet. But you might want to give Gigantic a shot, as it looks like it...

Gigantic made me gigantic in the pants

At PAX East this year I walked past many of the larger booths and gave them little attention, as I am typically more interested in indie games. I got invited to a press-only demo for Gigantic -- a game I only knew of by seeing the sign...

Game News Haikus: Gigantic, Borderlands, sex, and more

This week's episode a little late, courtesy of PAX East. I'll make it up to you, I promise. Last week D. Takeshi Nakamura had a little accident, inserting a line with a deplorable six syllables in it, which some keeping track at home notic...

We'll need Windows 10 (or an Xbox One) for Gigantic

Motiga's team action game Gigantic is looking fabulous in this new trailer out of PAX East. While that's no surprise, this is: the Seattle-based studio is partnering with Microsoft to bring the game to Windows 10 as "a key launch title," i...

Gigantic is a MOBA-like game I actually want to play

I don't play most MOBAs, but Gigantic has my attention. It's not one, to be clear, but there are similarities, especially with something like SMITE. Here, hero characters are leveling up to gain new abilities, but instead of pushing lanes ...
