League of Legends: Come LoL With Us!

September 09, 2010

Ferret is who we refer to as 'that guy' and by 'that guy' I mean the person who gets you hooked to a surprisingly deep and satisfying game known as League of Legends, effectively killing off any chance of catching up on your massive backlog of video games. Wait, I guess that doesn't apply to anyone besides me. Luckily I'm writing this, so I can let out my subtle hints of anger while explaining the glory that is League of Legends and why the office is buzzing about it.



So I'm sure you're wondering what has gotten us so hooked. For starters, if any of our readers out there have played DoTA, (Defense of The Ancients) you can easily figure out why this game is such a blast to play. A small history lesson, DoTA is a Warcraft 3 modification that to this day, is still incredibly popular. People still buy copies of Warcraft 3 to play DoTA. League of Legends takes the founding principles of the modification and expands upon them, improving the experience.



In League of Legends, you choose a Champion to do battle for you. This Champion can vary from a defensive character, an assassin, a mage, or a support character. With over 50 champions, the selection is diverse and each Champion has it's own strength and weaknesses. Once you pick a champion, you will be locked into battle against 5 other opposing champions, with the assistance of 4 ally champions. Your objective being to breach past the enemy guard towers and reach the opposition's nexus. Once there, the nexus must be destroyed all the while defend your base from enemy attacks.



Here is where the beauty of League of Legends shows. You level your champion through battling of minions (AI controlled, lower level monsters) and earn money to boot. Collect enough money to begin purchasing upgrades from a huge list of gear. Each item bringing something unique to the table, you begin to tap into the depth of League of Legends. Tactics begin to play a large part of the game, along with coordination with your teammates.



The developers landed it spot on when it came to balancing the real-time strategy and the RPG elements of the game. It has just enough micromanagement to require tactical thought along with enough depth to give it replayability. With a diverse cast of Champions to choose and play against plus a wide array of items to upgrade, every game can end up being a completely unique experience.


Now for the fun part. We were taking challengers but now the roster is full! Apologies to those who can not pariticpate, perhaps next time you can own us! Some blood has been shed, and more will later on. We look forward to seeing our contenders on the battlefield. Hopefully some of them will be able to bring us down a peg or two.

Dawn of War 2 Mods: Change The Way You Click!

September 09, 2010




I happen to be a great real-time strategy fan, and in fact, a Warhammer fan. So yes, I do believe I have fallen under the category of geek. We're not here to discuss my social shortcomings though, this FileBlog is about shaking up the way you play your real-time strategy games! It's entertaining to construct 50 tanks and effortlessly run over your opponent but, some players prefer a bit more tactics in their real-time strategy, and these are the mods for you.

Tacticians and strategists are two different kinds of people.



Tactical Insertion Mod
Every decision counts as you start the game with only a fixed amount of requisition.




Space Hulk Mod
Join the Space Marines in cleansing this giant space shuttle of the deadly Tyranids.




Kill Team Mod
You and 4 other heroes must use quick-thinking tactics to survive the 40 waves of enemies!




Riders Of The Storm Mod
No longer be restrained by the population cap, unleash all of your forces!




Bloody And Epic Mod
For those who prefer large battles, and rules true to the Warhammer fluff, this mod is for you.



The Emperor just happens to be both.


If these mods were not for you, try checking our
Dawn Of War 2 Mod Section!
