This week's free champion rotation has been posted. These champions will become free to play starting tomorrow April 28th.
Gazing into my magical 8-ball reveals that there is no treasure to be found within this week's releases, not for me at least. Yet I feel compelled to put forward Omega Quintet as my "pick" of the week before Wordsmythe has the opportunity to throw me once more beneath the bus with some damning commentary about me and panty shots.
From what I can gather from the trailer, Omega Quintet takes the aesthetic of your typical post-80's space opera anime with monstrous alien creatures, and swaps the characters out with a J-Pop Idol Group, plus token boy wielding a heavy sword. Why is he there? I don't know, as it is most certainly not to be a cipher for the Otaku male this game is clearly targeting.
Here and there these seemingly obvious panderings have also been acting as deconstructions of Otaku culture and obsession, so I'm going to throw the game (and likely community member Mantid, who eats this sort of stuff up as a midnight snack) a bone in hopes that there is more to this particular book than the cover suggests.
