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.
