What are you playing?

Post  Guest on Wed May 19, 2010 12:00 am

Another "what are you" thread. I thought that some of us might play some games in between Allods, OUF, and any other guild group games. As an avid gamer, I regularly get games through GameFly, beat them, send them back, and get the next one. This thread is for those of you out there like me who play games on the side and want to share what you've been playing recently and/or recommend anything.

My recent games:
God of War 3

My take: I beat this in two sittings, but I expected it to be short. The story was good in that it always kept me engaged and everything I did definitely made me feel epic, but at times it was a little ridiculous. Overall I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good button masher from time to time and the story isn't half bad either. I'd give it a 8 or 9.

Just started Ratchet and Clank: A crack in Time. I'll post when it has been beaten. Halo: Reach and Red Dead Redemption shortly after.

I want Red Dead Redemption as it comes out Friday in Australia where I live. The ratings and reviews are really high.

I'm not sure whether to trust the scores (it's been given a 10 in lots of places) though because I remember when a favorite gaming site gave GTA IV a 10 out of 10 I completely disagreed with it.
I'm playing Metro 2033, Just Cause 2, third playthrough of Dragon Age Origins and have just started finished MW2 and tried out it's multiplayer along the way which is bugging me for various reasons at the moment.

Whats LoL like?

I want to play things as a guild but theres only 3 people in Allods so that's not working out, though I will still play it (has to be the most epic free game I have ever played, and I'm only 5 levels off max)

League of legends is just like the map in Warcraft 3 called Defense of the Ancients, or DotA. If you've never played DotA, it's essentially this. . . There are three little paths that your NPC controlled 'minions' (Or 'creeps') travel down to fight the enemy NPC controlled minions. These lanes eventually come to large structures called turrets (Or towers) which do a bunch of damage, and prevent you from attacking the next turret in that lane, and eventually the enemy base. There are three of these turrets in each lane, the third turret in the lane protects a structure called the Inhibitor (Or Barracks) which, when destroyed, grants the attacking team super minions, which have a lot of health, and do a lot of damage compared to the standard minions. The next building of interest is the Nexus, which is guarded by two more turrets. The Nexus is invulnerable until these two turrets guarding it are destroyed.

Now that we've covered the non-player part of the game, let's move on to what YOU the player can do. You select from one of 50+ 'champions' (Or Heroes) which can gain experience and levels. At first level, and every time you level up, you may either learn, or upgrade one of your abilities. There are four abilities to choose from, one of them is unavailable until level 6, which is known as your 'ultimate' (Your best ability). In addition to these four abilities, you have an innate passive ability, which depends on your hero, just like your other 4 abilities. Each hero is unique, has unique stats, and abilities, and will play a unique roll on your team.

Let's move on to YOU, the player. Not just what you can do, but you yourself. You play the role of a Summoner, the Summoner summons a hero onto the map, and directs them in these little battles. You are able to select two summoner abilities, which are entirely your choice, and will help your hero in battle, or escaping battle, or helping all heroes in an AoE (area of effect). These Summoner Spells range from giving your hero move speed, healing everyone in an area, and even instantly killing a single creep.

Gold, how you get it, and how you spend it. Every time you kill a creep, or 'last hit' it, you gain a small amount of gold (around 25). You use this gold to buy useful items from the shop which is located in your base. The Items available will either boost your champion's stats, allow them to place a ward to see a part of the map for an extended period of time, or even restore your champion's health and mana.

Any questions?

I'm gonna add some things to latiels explanation, a good one but 2 things are left out.

There are masteries for your summoner, those masteries can be spend in 3 different threes. offensive, defensive and utility.
While my main 2 hero's are crit monsters, I choose to enhance my hero's critical strike chance with 2% for example. You can level you(r) summoner to level 30.

While leveling you earn combat points wich are used to buy new hero's, items, etc.
Yes it is completely free to play. But if you want to unlock everything fast you can also buy them.

You can buy (combat points) items as a summoner? Yes you have a rune book. And this gives extra's to your hero, for example like i said my masteries focus on critical strike but my runebook focusses on critical damage.... au au au.

1 think I just think of, they have an european server... wich could mean I'm on a different server then USA or Aussie's.

edit: extra explanation, the runebook en masteries are done outside battles as is everything else what you want to do with leveling your summoner. Ones in the game you focus on your hero and your sommoner will be locked for that battle. You can change everything for free ones you finish the match. to prepare for a different hero for example.

downloading now. looks pretty cool. A fellow at work told me about this game, but since I think he is lame I thought the game might be lame as well by association.

Looks like less than a gig, the Riot Games folder shows 953 MB, so it's not too big.

The only similarities between GTAIV and RDR are the aiming system and the movement controls.

Besides that its like 4 times the size of GTAIV and there is SO MUCH STUFF TO DO!

Im a huge western fan so im loving every second of it and i agree with the rankings.

Its the game i've always dreamed "They" would make...

Just started playing League of Legends. So far it seems alright, though I feel like a complete utter nub at it. Never was really into Dota tbh. So not exactly pro.
