Ronimo Games introduced its 13th character to Awesomenauts , and his name is Genji. Genji is one of the last living Entin, a caterpillar-like monk “on a pilgrimage to restore his faith in the great space butterfly.” He is also a support character that specializes in “shielding allies and banishing enemies.” Ronimo tells us that Genji is being put through testing in closed beta, along with a sizable balance overhaul for the game, so there’s no specific date for when the character will join the rest of the Awesomenauts crew.

How Guardians of Middle-earth innovates on the MOBA gametype

We first saw Guardians of Middle-earth in action back at E3 this year, and it was quite impressive even then: Monolith has taken the PC-centric gameplay of the emerging MOBA (or DotA , or LoL , or even action RTS, whatever you like to call it) genre, and translated it over to a console and a controller. But since that first play at E3, I’ve gotten a few more chances to play the game at Comic-Con and PAX, and GOME (acronyms!) is even more interesting than just a console clone of the popular League of Legends and the upcoming Dota 2 .
