Today's news post has nothing to do with today's comic. It has to do with a new video game I've begun playing.
League of Legends.
I'm bad at strategy-type RPGs, and I'm pretty bad at this one, but it's strangely addictive and fun. Most of that comes from the personality of the "champions" you control. I spent more time than I care to admit just browsing the list of characters.
I've been playing as Rammus the Armordillo and everything from his gruff voice to his waddle/walk has me totally sold on him. I'm waiting for my opportunity to play Mordekaiser, if for no other reason than all his special abilities are named after metal songs.
The fact that it's totally free to play is a bonus, too.
So if you play League of Legends
already, feel free to add me to your friends list! My summoner name is "(I've been swamped with friend requests!)" and, if you can tolerate my inept ass, maybe we'll fight together! If you want to try the game for yourself, you can tell them Mookie sent you!
(That's a link that signs you up to play via a referral from my account. I'm a referral rewards whore.)
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out!
