I’m back from the lan party and it was awesome. This lan party is held at a four star hotel, so the beds are good, the food is good and the chairs are comfy. The best, of course, is the people. This group is limited. Friends of friends only and you have to be approved. So all the assholes and cheaters are kept out. No one will steal your controller or hard disk when you go to sleep. The conversations are great during dinner time and on Teamspeak. I love these weekends very much. Maybe even more than real vacation. So what did we play?
I´m still recovering from the shoulder injury from a few weeks ago. It´s not smart to rush recovery, so I took the time I needed. I did play this week, but I already feel my muscles when I play for several hours. Obviously, the more passive the game, the longer I can play.
Next weekend I’ll be at a lan party with my friends. I know most of them will be playing Modern Warfare 2, which I won’t. I can’t play any kind of shooter or first person game without getting a terrible headache after ten minutes. I do hope we can play some other games, like Magicka, Tower Wars, Dungeon Defenders, Impire or SimCity. If no one wants to play with me, I’ll probably try to finish Dragon Age or another RPG.
So what did I play?
Riot has released a champion spotlight with the new abilities. I’m not sure what to think of it yet. I want to play her with the new kit first before I say they’re not good. The new abilities do give her more CC, which is always good as support. But I’m not sure she’ll be a viable mid. I think there are better chars for mid. It seems she has more range which is always good. Especially since they change her passive. Now there’s no need for you to tank the shit of it and then do damage when your HP is so low you get another 100 AP extra.
I’m not the kind of gamer who sticks to one game. I also blame my chronic neck injury for messing with my concentration span. It’s so short! Some games I don’t even play for ten minutes and I’m already bored. My Raptr Weekly Report looks silly, but some games stick. So what have I been playing lately?
