I really like the look of Siege! [official site], an upcoming local multiplayer brawler from developers 2nd Studio. Each game starts by both teams building a castle fitted out with cannons.

Friend of RPS Phill Cameron pinged this at me this morning, the sweetie- indie project King Arthur's Gold is big ol' team-based multiplayer battle with an emphasis on destructible terrain and constructing defenses. In essence, it's a 2D, medieval interpretation of the incredible Ace of Spades. Which was, of course, a more combative interpretation of Minecraft. Between this and Terraria, we've got quite a commendable…
