Just here to tell you guys about a game I've recently started playing. It's called Microvolts and it's a third person shooter where you play as one of the 4 dolls brought to life. Because you're all tiny action figures, the maps are freaking huge. You've got your staple TF2 weapons (rifle, heavy machine gun, shotgun, sniper, grenade launcher, noob tubes) and it plays very much like it. It's a breath of fresh air for the stale f2p shooter mmo's. A big problem was the lack of customization of your avatar, there's barely anything in the shop.
Give it a go :)

Pockie Ninja Review

So Pockie Ninja just went into OBT 2 days ago so I thought I'd check it out. If you don't know, it's a browser game that uses Naruto and Bleach characters (not sure if they're allowed though). The fights are done without any interaction so you kinda just watch two people fight it out, but you set the skills and equipment like you would normally do.
So let's get started.
Holy shit that's a lot of free stuff
Like a lot of other games produced in Asia (in this case Taiwan), you're bombarded with freebies that keep you playing. You start by choosing a character to use (which you can switch later on in the game as you acquire more 'outfits') and choose a Village to start in. You'll get a bunch of tutorial quests that don't require any thinking or skill but give a shit ton of exp. The first 10 levels or so fly by fast.
Strange, a browser game with decently priced cash shop items
Simple tasks such as staying online for a certain time or doing quests reward you with Gift Coupons that can substitute as Gold (irl currency) for certain things. I found that you get plenty of coupons easily, unlike many other games where you can barely make it without $$$ (Caesary). Granted some things can't be bought w/ coupons such as more backpack space, but all in all, it's very fair.
Nothing witty to say about this part
The graphics are crisp and pretty good for a browser game. The fighters are all chibis (super deformed) and the skills look pretty damn cool often enough. Lots of variety in monsters (seriously, there are sushi monsters) and a lot of outfits to choose from.
Why's it so quiet?
There is background music to the maps, but there aren't any sound effects for skills or hits or even for when you win or lose. In this respect, it feels incomplete. At least add some sloshing sounds when I use a mud based skill, you know?
Me love you long time?
There's a ton of translation errors that could have been fixed by just going over the lines. A lot of things are awkwardly phrased and unclear. 
Restrictions that come from being a browser game
It's basically an idle game w/ ninjas and Soul Reapers. There isn't too much that is very innovative. I was really expecting for you to be able to control the fight, but sadly it does it on its own. It feels unpolished, which is expected from a game just entering open beta but these days, open beta is almost synonymous w/ opened. It's very accessible because it doesn't require any plug-ins but Flash.

It's a nice time waster when you're doing some work but definitely nothing worthy of your main game.

My Favorite Webcomics is about a fictional sport called, well, boxerhockey. Well drawn and very funny, though slow on updates sometimes. goes against what you expect to happen. P.S., hovering over the comic gives you a funny line and there's also a secret comic by hovering your mouse a bit right from the upper right corner. Updates Mondays and Thursdays. has cute, quick comics. Updates every few days.
What're yours?

New Lee Sin info+pics
His lore, skillset, art, and ingame pictures are out. Please don't be an elaborate hoax :(

As a young teen, Lee Sin was intent on becoming a summoner. His will and dedication were unmatched by any of his peers, and his skill drew the attention of Reginald Ashram, the League’s High Councilor at the time. While studying at the Arcanum Majoris, Lee Sin became frustrated with instruction paced for the other students. He spent his free time researching the nuances of summoning in hopes of graduating sooner. He made amazing advances in his arcane studies, surpassing all other students. By all indications, he would have become one of the League’s greatest summoners were it not for one terrible mistake. Too impatient, he attempted to test his ability by summoning a beast from the Plague Jungles. What he summoned instead was a young boy, but not in one piece. He barely had time to look the boy in what was once his face before the jumbled human mass fell lifeless to the floor. A League investigation later revealed that the boy’s entire village was obliterated by feedback from the ritual.
Lee Sin’s talents were so promising that the League was willing to overlook the incident, but he could never forgive himself. He left the Institute and journeyed to the Shojin Monastery for eternal repentance, swearing never to practice magic again. Years later, hoping to atone for his crime with martyrdom, he set himself ablaze as a protest of the Noxian occupation of Ionia. He remained alive in this state, enduring searing agony for weeks. His actions paved the way for a League match wherein Ionia prevailed, but by the time he was doused, his eyes had been burned completely from their sockets. Hailed as a savior, he was reborn, and his will to act invigorated. He joined the League of Legends to continue his atonement with sweat and blood, a true monk’s only possessions.
“The actions of one may sunder the world, but the diligence of many may rebuild it.” -Lee Sin
Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike:
  • Sonic Wave: Lee Sin projects a discordant wave of sound to locate his enemies, dealing physical damage to the first enemy it encounters. If Sonic Wave hits, Lee Sin can cast Resonating Strike for the next 3 seconds.
  • Resonating Strike: Lee Sin dashes to the enemy hit by Sonic Wave, dealing physical damage plus 10% of their missing health.
Safeguard / Iron Will
  • Safeguard: Lee Sin rushes towards a target ally, shielding them both from damage. If a shield is broken, half the energy cost is returned. After using Safeguard, Lee Sin can cast Iron Will for the next 3 seconds.
  • Iron Will: Lee Sin's intense training allows him to thrive in battle. For 5 seconds, Lee Sin gains lifesteal, spell vamp, and armor.

Tempest / Cripple
  • Tempest: Lee Sin smashes the ground sending out a shockwave that deals magic damage and reveals enemy units hit. If Tempest hits an enemy, Lee Sin can cast cripple for the next 3 seconds.
  • Cripple: Lee Sin cripples nearby enemies revealed by Tempest, reducing their Movement and Attack Speed for 4 seconds. Movement and Attack Speed recover gradually over the duration.

Dragon's Rage (Ultimate)
  • Lee Sin performs a powerful roundhouse kick launching his target back, dealing physical damage to the target and any enemies they collide with. Enemies the target collides with are knocked into the air for a short duration.

Flurry (Passive)
  • After Lee Sin uses an ability, his next 2 basic attacks gain 50% Attack Speed and return 10 energy each.

The manatee is Urf, the April Fool's Champion who never came to be. :(

LoL- Lee Sin

Lee Sin, the Blind Monk was a champion that appeared in the trailer for League of Legends but was never released. Images and names for his spells have always been in the game files. Riot Games said that he wasn't canceled which gave hope to many that the Blind Monk may come.

He was just featured the latest champion sneakpeak (, but keep in mind that the patch is on April Fools Day. Is this another prank like the one last year where they announced Urf, the Manatee? What do you think?

League of Legends Basics
Read those two threads. They may be ancient but it still applies now.

League of Legends is a lobby based game. Once you are matched into a game, you enter the "Champion Select". Here you choose a champion, or character, to use for that match. Choose summoner spells, which are located next to your masteries and runes box. You start off with a limited choice of spells. After everyone has chosen and locked in or the alloted time has passed, the loading screen for the game will start. This may take awhile depending on the slowest person's connection. I remember it felt like forever my first game :)

There are 3 lanes (top, middle, bottom). Generally, one champion goes mid, two top and bot. If there is a jungler (champion who kills neutral creeps instead of laning), top will be solo. I will go into the benefits of this later.

You start with 450 gold, which can be used at the shop next to where you spawned. Where you spawned is the fountain and being in it gives you extremely high HP and MP regen. You'll want to use most of your gold on starting item. Look up your champion at or (preferably during the loading screen) and find a well rated guide.

You have 4 skills, 3 normal skills (Q,W,E) and 1 ultimate (R). You can add a point in your ultimate at levels 6, 11, and 16. QWE have a max level of 5 and your ult has a max level of 3. Add your first skill by clicking on the button above the skill.

The map is divided diagonally by a river. There are two "turrets" along each lane for each side. They do significant damage early on. Then there are the team bases on the top right and bottom left of the map. Each lane has an inhibitor and an inhibitor turret near the entrance to the bases. Then there is the nexus and the nexus turrets. Killing the nexus wins you the game.

Minions spawn in waves in each lane. If the inhibitor is destroyed for a lane, a super minion will spawn each wave. Inhibitors respawn in 5 minutes. You'll want to protect them :P

You only gain gold from landing the killing blow on minions so you need to practice last hitting. Last hitting doesn't push your lane so you are safer and the enemies need to come closer to your side which leaves them more vulnerable. After the laning phase, champions or entire teams will start to roam and cause teamfights. See that red cross on your minimap? That's Baron Nashor. He's a neutral creep that when killed, gives the killing team an amazing buff. There are other neutral creeps that give a buff, but only to the one champion who lands the last hit. They are the Ancient Golem (commonly referred to as blue buff, blue) and Lizard Elder (liz, red, lizard, red buff). The Ancient Golem is located at the upper left of the blue team's jungle and the bottom right of the purple team's jungle. Jungle is just the forest inbetween the lanes and they contain creep camps. Lizard is at the middle camp of the bottom side of blue team and the upper side of purple team.

For your first dozen games you'll probably be really confused. And you'll get a lot of hate. But if you can make it past the shit community, you'll find a great game. :)
Note: This guide is mainly geared to the 5v5 Summoner's Rift map, though some things still apply to 3v3.

Casey Heynes 1st Interview

I know most of you have heard about this, but I just had to post something about it. Check the vid :)
If you didn't know, a kid was getting bullied by this runt. In self defense, Casey PICKED him up and threw him to the ground. Feels like a superhero irl :P

League of Legends

You gotta check out this game. It's a moba much like DotA and HoN but it takes more steps to differentiate itself from DotA. New patch every two weeks and a new map/graphic updates are in the works.
For guides:
I'll post my personal builds for some champions. :D
