Rhys Egner of FTG: This hands-on preview is, well, not so much “big” or “a big” hands-on preview as much as it is a preview of a game called “Gigantic“. Of course, if you were directed here through the main page of the site, you probably already knew that. Needless to say, you’re probably asking, “Rhys, why are you embellishing so much?” and “how is it that you speak in a way that suggests I have any interest in what you’re writing?” Well, external-monologue that hurt my feelings, I’m glad you didn’t actually ask those questions.
Shortly after a major lay off at Motiga, Perfect World and Motiga announce Gigantic is shutting down later this year.
Perfect World confirms the date and details of the Gigantic shutdown, granting players their final few months of free play in the unique MOBA.
1RBC: Publisher Perfect World has shut down both Runic Games and Motiga. Runic was the studio behind RPG series Torchlight as well as the newly released Hob– after nine years in the business, they’ve finally met their end. Motiga, on the other hand, was a much newer studio- they released their debut game, Gigantic, over the summer. Unfortunately, it seems that neither developer was quite profitable enough for international megacorp Perfect World- hence their decision to shut these studios. The rest of our episode this week is business as usual- new Playstation games from the Paris Games Week and Razer’s gaming phone- all embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
