Venture the Nexis and Join the League!

So, my brother-in-law has been stuck on a game for the past month or so and I finally decided to bite when told I should join in. So I went over to and decided to download the game “League of Legends” to my pc. To start off, L.O.L. is a real-time strategy game, produced by the creators of the War Craft 3 downloadable game “Defenders of the ancients (or Dota for short). Having played Dota, I figured that this one would be pretty good and I haven’t been dissappointed yet!

Game play works much the same as it does in Dota. The game sets you up as a “Summoner” and you must command your “Champion” to go forth and destroy your enemy’s “Nexis” or command crystal that is found in the heart of their base. The game provides you with ground forces that go ahead of your champion to fight on your behalf and has an rpg element with a leveling system and a weapons/armor purchasing system. And, like Dota, weapons and armor purchased can be combined to form stronger items through recipes provided (think synthesis, if you will). The game is very fun and addicting (much like the predecessor that came before it), but one interesting difference from Dota is the ability to rack up points or to use cash to purchase new character skins from the games website. And game play is fast and furious when played with others over the net, with struggles from teams to go forth and destroy their enemy and their Nexis to win the game!

So, in conclusion, I would like to say that if you haven’t had a chance to play this game yet, then you should TOTALLY give it a shot. It’s free to play, doesn’t take alot of space, and system requirements aren’t high to run. Now then, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to summon me up a sandwich. Until next time, I hope you all enjoy!
