Gigantic! Gigantic! Gigantic! Open beta hits Windows 10

You keep your Pokélads; I want a bigger monsterpal. I’ve had my eye on Gigantic [official site] for a while, fancying 5v5 third-person action where each team is supported by a honking great monster, and I’ll be having a go this weekend thanks to the open beta that’s now live. Our monsterdad can beat up your monsterdad. Read the rest of this entry »

MOBA Gigantic moves into open beta on 8 December

Gigantic

I was about to just use the lyrics to Gigantic by the Pixies as the intro to this post but then I remembered what they actually are and what they mean so the whole thing got a bit NSFW. Instead, here is the game news: Motiga’s 5v5 third-person MOBA, Gigantic [official site], is going into open beta from 8 December on Windows 10 and Xbone. I assume this is to take advantage of people taking various days off for the holiday season and perhaps looking for something new to play. Read the rest of this entry »

Giveaway: 10,000 Gigantic Closed Beta Keys

Gigantic is a 5 vs. 5 multiplayer game in which the teams are both accompanied by a gigantic monster. You’re thinking, “5 vs. 5? Oh, it’s one of those MO–“. Wait, no: it’s got no lanes, towers, or creeps. It’s a third-person class-based shooter. (“Oh, it’s one of tho–” Yes.) It sounds pretty cool.

Star Trek Online Expansion Goes All Timey-Wimey

It’s Star Trek a-go-go lately, with every dang series hitting Netflix UK last week and a new movie out in a fortnight. Not wanting to be left out, free-to-play MMORPG Star Trek Online [official site] today launched a new expansion which crosses over with The Original Series and Star Trek Beyond and other things in ways that would be baffling if you treated these timelines as a serious history rather than plot devices to tell fun stories. (Please don’t explain timelines to me. Any of them. Anyone.) They’ve even got Walter Koenig to play Chekov again.

Hot Loot: Torchlight For Free

FREE SPIDERS! A SPIDER FOR EVERY READER! WHERE WILL YOU DISCOVER YOURS... OR WILL IT DISCOVER YOU?

You’ve played Torchlight by now, right? Y’know, Torchlight: fine little action-RPG released in 2009 by Runic Games. Y’know, Runic: founded by the Diablo-co-designing Schaefer brothers and Fate chap Travis Baldree (at the time, anyway – Erich Schaefer and Baldree have since moved on), bringing along Diablo musicman Matt Uelmen. Given how many times it’s been on sale or offered as a freebie to entice folks to register for something or other, I imagine you have. But if not, hey, it’s a nice action-RPG I think you might like, and one that’s again being offered for free.

This time Torchlight’s free to entice folks onto Runic owner Perfect World’s own store, Arc.

Return To Icewind Dale In The New Neverwinter Expansion

Is there where Larrel...?

It’s been a good decade since Black Isle last took us to Icewind Dale, so how’d you fancy a return visit? This isn’t the noughties anymore, mind, so you may find the whole experience a mite different to those old turn-based RPGs. Curse of Icewind Dale, the third big free update for Cryptic’s free-to-play Neverwinter, launched yesterday to add new zones set in the chilly land and more modern MMORPG merriment.
