DC Does DOTA: Infinite Crisis
Oh no! The DC multiverse is exploding again. Heroes and villains will have to work together to save it by engaging in some sort of free-to-play MOBA called Infinite Crisis. I know quite a lot about DC comics but I don't know anything about MOBA games but since I'm all alone in Castle RPS at the moment, I'm going to have to tackle this anyway. In place of informed opinion, I present to you a brief anecdote. I installed and played DOTA 2 for the first time this weekend and played through the tutorial, which involved hitting things and then getting dressed. Then I tried to play a game with bots and realised that I didn't even know what my objectives were, beyond wearing armour. Here is the trailer for Infinite Crisis.
The website keeps banging on about destructible scenery and map-altering events, and I didn't experience anything like that while I was putting my bracers on in DOTA 2. Could the ability to change maps during play be Infinite Crisis' unique selling point? Can a free game even have a 'selling point'? So many questions.
