Don't forget to change the title, silly! Thanks!

Will that do? I'll edit again upon release.

Just noticed this was out on Steam. There's also a 3-pack for only $20.

Interesting.

No Steam demo, but is there a demo on PSN? I'd like to try it before jumping in, although it looks fun.

There is a demo on PSN (as well as Xbox).

Well played the demo on PSN, tutorial and one practice match. So far it's... awesome.

Not sure that I need another MOBA, since LoL sucks so much of my time and money already. But it definitely feels different.

Might look into it more, if there ends up being some more people around here playing.

Also Steam would be cheaper with the pack, but it seems a few of you were playing this on PS3 also. It does seem to handle fine with a controller, so maybe picking it up there would be worth it, if there's still anyone playing?

I'll have to download the demo on xbox then buy it on steam if I like it.

If anyone finds a demo for PC, Steam or otherwise, let us PC people know. Game looks great.

Topic on official forums.

No dev reply yet, but definitely no PC demo so far.

Just snatched this game up on PC through Steam via my computer which is on my desk.

This looks to be the DOTA game for me. People yelled at me on LoL and made me feel bad.

It's incredibly fun and accessible. New skills and characters unlock every level, so you can learn and get better at a nice pace. I also think 2D fits really well within the genre, but you could argue isometric is just a different 2D perspective.

If I'm online, good chance I maybe up for some Awesomenauts. Right now it's my second or third favorite game this year. I don't think anything will be able to topple Journey.

Wow, this is actually really good. The aesthetic is pretty damn amazing, Froggy G is great, haha!

You must've missed the title, then. Of course it's awesome!

True dat.

nim just gave it to me

Now that we have a handful with the game, I'd like to setup a time to play with folks. Thing is, this is more of an arcade, short-session game, where matches last 10-15min and there are three person teams. I think considering the size that personal invites would do just fine.

And forgetful me, I bought the 3-pack when I got the game. Anyone that really wants to play this game, and thinks they'll give it the time it deserves, shoot me a message and tell me why. Those who just want to try it out, or thinks it looks mildly interesting, need not apply. Wait for a demo; I don't want to say no to you! But will.

Looking forward to trying this one out!

Looking forward to playing with you!

Nim and I almost met up with each other, but we were playing at different times. Maybe I should've sent you an invite while you were in Sins, Nim. I don't mind people sending them to me, but for some reason I feel like I'm bothering people if they're in another game.

I unlocked Clunk again, so the fun's starting to really happen now! God I love that guy. The new alien looks interesting.

Since I've given up on 45min League games, this has really hit the spot for me. Games are like 10-20 minutes, and packed with action.

I've really taken a liking to playing AP Lonestar... the bounce (enables explosion on contact) and damage-over-time options on his grenades are nuts if you're able to land your shots.

I do have a bit of an issue with how the "jungle" works though, since it's basically a location where people escape to pick up health right now, and I don't believe small jungle creeps provide any gold or exp.

I love how they showed off a clip where Clunk kills a teammate with the worm just to get an enemy...

Nice, friended! I'll be away tomorrow, and I don't know that I'll put much time in later in the day.

Got a game in with cyrax... and we were owned by some dude playing Derpl, he seems a bit overpowered! But I'll reserve judgement until I unlock him and give him a spin, it's how I've worked out the weakness of other characters so far, Clunk seemed a bit OP the first time I went up against him too. And Yuri for that matter...

It could also have been the guy playing Voltar keeping him up, I missed having a direct attack when I tried him out, but managed to get the win in under 10 minutes achievement with him in a practice session, he makes droids damn nasty against turrets, with a good team he could be very nasty indeed.

Also, it could be because I'm up way too late with a cold... bedtime...

Having a blast with this one. If anyone wants to team up, I'm on most nights (after the little one goes to bed). Feel free to send any invites my way on Steam!

Thanks Nimcosi. I posted the link to the initial post.

The complete lack of chat about this is depressing, it's REALLY GOOD! I'm NOT LYING! You can tell because of the CAPITALS!

Oh, and there's a new character now. He's basically a zergling that poops out turrets. I mean that literally. How can you say no to that?

I can't quite decide if he's overpowered yet.

I've probably played equal amounts of this and League over the last two weeks, which is saying something. Especially since I have an Awesomenauts win rate of around 33%.

Feel free to invite me to your matches if you're looking for some goojer support

I am very bad, but this is very fun.

Hey gang, how much mileage can we get when the above words have been uttered by the namesake of the dating thread?

Also, is anyone still playing this on 360 or is it all PC now?

PC for me.

I've been futzing around with this game from time to time when I've needed a break from Diablo III, and I think I'm finally getting the hang of the new characters a little. (I double-prestiged right around the time they came out, so I didn't have the full complement of skills to choose from).

Derpl seems like a character that would be much more useful in multi with friends, where you can pair with a Voltar that actually knows what he's doing. His turret shot and nukes and pretty powerful, but if you screw up and wind up double-teamed, but the time you unturret and try to run you're already screwed.

With Coco the key seems to be beefing her melee attack and Blaze speed, cherry-picking undefended bots and turrets, and popping Blaze for a quick getaway any time she encounters opponents. She can chew through turrets like crazy, but doesn't seem to have much on Leon when it comes to meleeing against opponents.

Thoughts?

Edit: Also, I've been playing on the 360 still, so anyone still playing on that platform can friend me up. I wouldn't be opposed to double-dipping and grabbing the Steam version for more people to play against if we happen to have enough interest to go in on a 3-pack. Otherwise I think I'll just wait for a sale.
