Soooo Trish, Paris, and I (and Ryan soon?) have been playing the hell out of this game League of Legends, which has been around for years but only just released a mac client. It’s sort of a Warcraft 3/Diablo 2 meets Team Fortress 2 style game, where you are on a team of 3 or five with a top-down point-and-click interface where you pick a guy who has 4 main abilities and duke it out with another team in a capture-the-flag style battle.
It’s…. Really…. REALLY…. good. You should check it out: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/
It’s a free game, which is nice, and they surprisingly do NOT beat you over the head with microtransactiony bullshit or punish you for not spending money.
If anyone’s interested, friend me. My char name is Blue Kalyx.
Still waiting for Star Command to come out and looking for some other space management game to fill my time.
So, have you guys played FTL? What do you think?
So Netflix has a pretty good documentary called Indie Game: The Movie. I highly recommend it. It’s a pretty entertaining look at the lives of a few indie game developers as they go through the motions of developing and or releasing out their games.
The two games followed and sort of contrasted in the doc are Super Meat Boy and Fez, both of which I’d been aware of but never paid much attention to when they were released. After watching the doc, I finally went and bought both games and man, they are so good. So so good.
I have finally started playing Left 4 Dead (2) on PC. I am basically awful, despite my rich history of playing the first one on the Ecks Boks Three Sixty a lot. I beseech you to be my Steam Fraaaaaand and help me get better at PC FPS games after a twelve year hiatus. On the Steamz, I am called “silentkit” and I am awful.

-tricia, like from high school
Neat-ass game combines 2D and 3D elements. Also, the little dude jumps like mega man.
Sam, Paris, Trish (Trash), and I all spent a pretty good deal of time playing Diablo 3 tonight.
It is a good game. It mostly involves a lot of clicking and then feeling intensely rewarded when things pop out of the stuff you clicked on. You pick them up and wear them, or share them, or sell them to buy new things, or melt them to make new things, or you just don’t pick them up cause you don’t have any more room to put any more things. My guy carries a bubble around like an idiot. But it’s cool, he has a wizard hat.
…I guess I kinda thought I was going to have more to say about it. It’s fun to play games with your friends. If you are also playing Diablo 3, you should post your username in the comments. We’ll click our mouses on stuff and pick up the things that pop out.
