If, like many of the XBLAFans staff, you are eagerly anticipating the release of the 2D MOBA game Awesomenauts then you may want to take a good long look at the screens below. Ronimo have just posted these images on their Facebook page of the three maps that will ship with the game in two weeks.
The three maps are Sorana, AI Station 404 and Ribbit IV. Aside from having different layouts and visual styles each map also has a unique element such as AI Station's anti-gravity field which will allow players to float around the area. AI Station 404 also has "Creep Releasers" on each side of the map, allowing teams to reinforce their attack. Ribbit IV has a "Solarboss" on each side of the map, which is an extra tough neutral enemy for teams to tackle and reap the rewards if they succeed. In the center of the Sorona map there is a giant worm who has taken up residence in a mineshaft, players can call on it by pressing a button on the map, causing trouble for anyone in the vicinity.
You can check out the maps for yourself below and be sure to head over to the Awesomenauts Facebook page for more info. Awesomenauts will be released on May 2 for 800 MSP.

Earlier this afternoon, Neil Holman, the production designer and art director of Archer, responded to a tweet proposing an exchange of "dead hookers" (yes, you read that right) for his cartoon spy to get his own table with, "Man, if they're up for it, I will put them in touch with whoever they need. End of the day, it's FX's call though."
Both tweets were also directed at Zen Studios' Twitter account, and the developer was apparently quite smitten with the idea, tweeting back "Please do," in all caps, complete with a smiley face.
Finally, Holman responded to Zen's tweet by requesting their contact info be privately sent to him so that he the two sides could make this thing happen. "DM me a contact email/info! I'll put the wheels in motion," tweeted Holman. Nothing is confirmed at this time, but it looks very likely that FX's narcissistic spy is destined to get the silver-ball treatment through future DLC.
