Super Monday Night Combat Rundown
This MOBA-shooter hybrid might change the genre forever.
Monday Night Combat is a fun game that still holds value despite being a few years old at this point. Uber has decided to capitalize on the MOBA craze in conjunction with the success of Monday Night Combat to bring us Super Monday Night Combat, which is far more of a sequel than other games with "super" in the name have tended to be. Super Monday Night Combat mirrors the structure of a MOBA like League of Legends in that it offers a number of characters (called pros) with rotating availability, a free-to-play microtransaction model, and even a jungle. Check out this video for more details.The retention of Monday Night Combat's visual style and themes combined with some innovative ideas like the implementation of MOBA structure in a shooter, rather than a strategy game.
