Battleborn is an online multiplayer arena shooter that relies heavily on MOBA gameplay. For those unfamiliar with the MOBA genre, it’s strategic in it’s gameplay that requires team work instead of a one man army controlling the board. There’s 25 characters to launch, each with differing abilities.
Instead of hosting a series of pages dedicated to every announcement during this E3, I’ve decided to just create a single post and edit it as news rolls out with links to various sources instead of how I’ve done things in the past.

If you were to ask me a few years ago if I cared if indie games were coming out, I’d have shook my head and called you a hipster. There were a few games that stood out such as Torchlight, Minecraft and Super Meat Boy. But nothing really excited me until I tried out Hotline Miami and switched from an indie-hating gamer to someone who saw potential. My hatred was mainly from buying so many awful, yet recommended, indie games on Steam. I can’t even begin to tell you how many stupid rougelike games I have that aren’t any fun at all. And there was something unappealing from the indie-only fans, much like the problem I have with PC-only or console-only gamers. But that’s then and this is now. I really enjoy a host of indie games and while my PC is still heavily used for quirky titles, my PlayStation has been really good at putting out a collection of high quality indie games that remind me of why I’m a gamer.
Ya know. To have fun!
