And It's Not League of Legends: Gigantic

For the past two weeks I have had the opportunity to play Gigantic, a game that I have been anticipating for literally years. I can recall distinctly waiting in line at PAX East 2015 to try and get a chance to play. The line was long but the wait was so worth it. After that public showing, everything Gigantic-related became quiet for almost a year; I thought that the game was lost.

Lost Worlds: Super Monday Night Combat

The MOBA (Multi-user online battle arena) genre has attracted great attention in recent years. Games like Smite, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, and Dota 2 all follow in the footsteps of the original Warcraft 3 mod, DotA. The genre has garnered hundreds of millions of dollars and has brought esports attention to the public eye. However, those are the success stories. For each success, there’s a handful of failures, games that faltered or just didn’t quite make the cut. That’s what I’m here for, so welcome to the Lost Worlds.
