I always though creating a game with the acronym ‘LoL’ was quite clever, because the thousands of people googling the letters to ensure that their niece didn’t just say something lewd at the end of her text message will likely become exposed to this game.

I actually stayed away from League of Legends for a while because I thought it was some kind of glorified Real Time Strategy or war-game kind of thing. Low and behold, I’m listening to two friends talking at work and one goes
One: “Oh, I started playing that tower defense game the other day”
Two: “Which one?”
One: “You know, LoL”

My ears actually pricked up (yes, this is something my ears do when I’m trying to hear) – tower defense? Yes pleeeeease!

So, here is the basic overview: Green arrow is my skills bar, Yellow is the chat window – and it let’s you know when a party member purchased an important item, Blue arrow to the left are the members in my party and the Red arrow is myself, some other players in my team and le minions.

So basically, you scuttle around in this map, trying to take out the opposite teams towers and eventually their base (is it called a base??).

Excuse me minions, coming through!

When you destroy bigger towers close to the base you get super minions.
I like these minions because I like playing the more supportive characters (Like Morgana) so they’re good to hide behind.

Spaaaaawn my lovelies. Come unto me, your leader!

And then once you finally destroy the big hub…

Well, not so much beastly exactly as low HP and cowardly, but I like to talk big with the best of them.Talk next time folks!!


Good Morning Coffee Drinkers


Ok, so I suppose it’s kind of expected that the first post in any blog is a ‘introduce yourself and the purpose of your blog’ piece; So in keeping with that tradition, here we go.

I am a heavily caffeine addicted female gamer (25 yo).
Now, I know everyone just rolled their eyes “Ugh, self proclaimed female gamers”, and yes I get that there appears to be a ‘geek sheike’ thing banging around at the moment, and comparatively to most of my male gaming counterparts I suck at almost everything – BUT, despite all of that gaming, television shows and coffee are some of my few true joys in life.

Now, what do I play? Anything and everything (except real time strategy games, could never get into those).
I primarily game on my trusty computer (named Ash), but I also enjoy:
– PS3
– PS Vita
– 3D NDS
– Wii
– My mobile phone

Recently I have been bouncing between plating DC Universe Online, Star Trek Online, Path of Exile, League of Legends and Dragon Age Origins.

So, I guess I will leave my intro post there, and I look forward to having an outlet for my incessant screen shot taking and need to tell stories.

Catch you all shortly!
