DARK ECLIPSE - Tokyo Game Show 2017 Trailer
Dark Eclipse is inarguably difficult to learn, but once you are over that hump the game is simply spectacular. Just because you don't understand everything right out of the gate doesn't mean that deep and thoughtful design isn't present. There is real depth of strategy here, and the fun visuals are just the icing on the cake. I'm hoping that the audience that has currently found Dark Eclipse sticks with it (and continues to grow), because this is a great game that deserves to thrive.
Dark Eclipse has a good foundation, with a good outlook for the future. New players to the genre may struggle at first, given the extra-light tutorial that expects players to figure out mechanics on their own, without so much as a codex to read about the five different tower types. Since online is a ghost town, the only real option for practicing is to play against AI, or in an online-only match against a friend. You can't beat its free price, however, so all PSVR players should at least give Dark Eclipse a shot to see if it's their cup of MOBA and to help populate the servers.
