Awesomenauts Assemble!

I still haven’t really played much of the two big MOBA games out there – DOTA 2 and League of Legends (a bit of the latter) – but I have found that I actually do quite like this style of game, and was having a good time with the Lord of the Rings-themed Guardians of Middle-Earth MOBA that came out 1-2 years ago. The reason I stopped playing that was because not many people were playing it, and so I would mostly end up not being able to connect with others players online, and was tired of playing just against the AI. I was always curious about Awesomenauts – it’s been out for a while on PC – and finally took the plunge when this updated edition came out on PS4 recently. I really like the 2D twist on regular MOBA play, and the cartoony presentation is really fun. I’m also finding that it’s a terrific game to play with Remote Play on my Vita, because of the simple control scheme (Remote Play falters when you have a game that has complex controls, that wants you to use shoulder and trigger buttons). Playing Towerfall: Ascension’s Quest mode in Remote Play is really great too.

Towerfall: Ascension

OK, so I only have one PS4 controller – for my second one, I want the blue version, which is currently out-of-stock – so I haven’t been able to play this against someone else, like you’re supposed to, but I’m still having a blast with it. That’s because the game now includes a “Quest” mode that you can play alone or co-op with one more player, which is basically you facing off against hordes of enemies. Fun. There are challenge screens too. Can’t wait to play this with some friends over, as we hurl insults in sync with the arrows slicing through everyone’s soon-to-be-dead corpse.
