League of Legends

Most people that knows ANYTHING about the fanmade maps on good ol' Warcraft III has heard about Dawn Of The Ancients aka. DotA - Allstars. The makers has since formed Riot Games and made the Freeware Title "League of Legends".

League of Legends is Basically DotA.. is what I say when I present it to people, You have a number of lanes and you and your teammates has to go down these lanes destroying the enemy's towers and eventually their base and meanwhile defending your own.

Theese are the new features that's NOT in DotA according to the LOL homepage
  • Automated matchmaking, to make finding a good game easy
  • The ability to reconnect to games if you have disconnected
  • Completely new and original playable champions
  • Client-server network model with no host advantage
  • Advanced stat tracking
  • Built-in surrender functionality
  • In-game interface and controls designed for this style of play
  • Account-level progression, adding out-of-game strategic depth and customization, known as the summoner system
  • Regular updates with many more features to come!
  • An improved mini-map that shows your champion's pathing
  • Multiple maps, (Summoner's Rift, Summoner's Rift: Winter, Twisted Treeline, The Proving Grounds)
  • Features that make teaching the game to your friends easier, (game tutorial, bots, suggested items)
So come join me in playing this awesome game! That's pretty much all I'm doing these days anyway :b That and working on something exciting~~

The Tale of a Mouse

Most people i know have already heard this tale, but here goes:

So, i wake up one morning, go to my computer to draw the newest Bobby Macdog page, and what happens? The mouse. It stops randomly when i use it. So i think "hey maybe this is positive, I've used the same mouse for the past 6-7 years and maybe it's time to update to a wireless" So i dig in my stuff (I have loads of computer related things stuffed away in various boxes) and find the mouse I used to use on my portable pc, only problem is, the usb for connecting it to the pc is gone! God Dammit! After searching all over the place and pratically breaking my back over it, i decided to go down to the store and buy a new one. What happens? The mouse just feels wrong, It's too light, the old one was a heavy best of a mouse (I don't own a tablet) So now I can't draw pages, which means the pages of Issue 5 will have to wait for a while.

You know the worst part? same evening i bought the damn thing a friend of mine told me he had some used mouses over at his house i could've gotten for free.

Oh well, theres light at the end though, I gotta end a story on a positive note right? My good friend Mike Youngster has promised me his old tablet that doesn't work on his Mac computer, and since i'm a PC guy, it won't be a problem ^_^
