League of Legends – Quick dirty fun!
Been playing a bit of League of Legends recently and I’m recommending to all my readers and buddies. It’s by the people behind DOTA, perhaps the most popular Warcraft III mod ever made, and it’s quite similar in style to the original. Players take a hero and then with their team mates must bash the enemy heroes on a colourful map populated by towers and creeps (NPCs advancing towards the enemy). League of Legends is totally free to play and although you can buy “Riot Points” to accelerate the unlocking of new heroes, skins, etc, they aren’t necessary and Riot rotate the heroes you can select for free every week anyway, providing a lot of variety for your no-dollars-down.
So why not give it a try? The link is a referral one that will give bugger all, I expect, but other than that, click-through and grab the free client and give the game a whirl! I did, and it’s a great game to slip in between more serious pursuits.
