Awesomenauts developer Ronimo Games introduced the latest character in the Awesomenauts series, a libidinous caterpillar-like monk "on a pilgrimage to restore his faith in the great space butterfly."

Riding on the heels of GDC Europe, Gamescom 2012 is Europe's largest trade fair for games and interactive entertainment. It runs from August 15th through August 19th in Cologne, Germany, and includes more than 600 companies from 40 countries, and Polygon will be on the floor to bring you all the Gamescom news you can shake a warlock's staff or a space marine's gun at.

Awesomenauts, Ronimo Games' side-scrolling multiplayer online battle arena title, recently came out on Steam, and to celebrate the successful launch, the developers will soon add a new character named Gnaw to the game in a free update. Ronimo calls Gnaw "a nasty piece of work." This Awesomenaut resembles a rabid dog, except he spits poisonous ooze instead of drooling saliva on his foes. His viciousness comes from the Cosmic biker pirate masters who trained him, and from the gameplay shown in the video below, it appears that they trained him well. You'll probably be fine, though — as long as you're playing with Gnaw and not against him. Gnaw will be playable on the Gamescom show floor in the Valve booth, C030 in Hall 7.1, so check him out for yourself. We've reached out to Ronimo...

The Besties return with their most unusual rule change yet: They've completely forgone making any sort of decision and instead created a robot version of their editor-in-chief Chris Grant to choose a winner for them. ... Yeah, it's one of those kinds of episodes.
