Hey everyone, my friend FreeBrunch has started a gaming channel and he recorded a gaming session while we played Dying Light.  It’d be awesome if you checked it out and listened to us ramble and die.  A lot.  A lot of rambling and a lot of dying.

Things don’t get more snowbally than this.  I kind of chose Viktor as a goofy pick because I really enjoy playing him even though his lack of escape can truly get me into trouble.  I’ve always had faith in his damages, and by the end of the video, one laser and transfer blew up an enemy Ahri.  I should start building death fire grasp on him…

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything League related, but in May of 2013, I posted my five favorite champions that I like to take on Summoners Rift.  Times change, you get better, and patches change EVERYTHING.  Which means new champs are fitting the bill in order to successfully getting to that enemy Nexus.  So I’m here to tell you the new favorites I like picking in champion select these days and as you’ll be able to tell, it’s become quite different from what it used to be.

If you’re curious of where I’m at the ladder these days, as of late, I’ve been dancing around Silver IV & Silver V.

To put it lightly, I think I nearly doubled my game library this year.  I had a well paying job that allowed me to splurge for myself in ways I really haven’t in the past.  With all this new disposable income [insert ‘Thanks Obama’ meme here], I managed to purchase a number of games I’ve never played before in addition to the many incredible releases that came out this year.  And as a year ends, it’s pretty obvious that every blogger in the world is going to be coming up with the “Best of 2013” lists.  So naturally I’m just doing my duty as another blogger, who doesn’t have the time or wit to come up with something more original.

Truth be told, the number 1 shouldn’t surprise you, it’s pretty much one of the greatest games I’ve ever played, but it might be interesting to see the other games I’ve taken a hand at this past year.  If you’re doubting my nerd cred, these games do not take into account the older games that were released in other times that I’ve picked up [These titles include Minecraft, League of Legends, and Shadow the Colossus, Sly Cooper, etc].

Start a fire in the comments section!

As I finished a test on October 30th, I left the classroom defeated and broken.  In a rage of impulsiveness, I went to the closest Gamestop and purchased Assassin’s Creed 3 on the fly.  I had read a couple of reviews and I actually wasn’t expecting myself to buy this game.  At least until the Game of the Year Edition came out with all the DLC loaded.  But I was in such a foul mood after that test, I needed some immediate happiness.  So after purchasing the game and throwing possibly over 10-20 hours into it already [maybe more], it’s been quite an interesting road.

Assassin’s Creed 3 picks up where Assassin’s Creed: Revelations dropped off [which I didn’t get].  My familiarity with the franchise only extends to 2 of the four previously released: Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood.  The story is somewhat bloated between the present day  Assassin/Templar conflict and the historical setting that’s essentially simulated.  I have little care for the relation between the two and find myself loathing the present day stuff, so I’m going to focus this review on the historical setting chosen.

You play a Native American, Connor, during the peak of the American Revolution.  The colonies are in conflict and the British Royal Army continues its oppression.  Given the skills of a masterful assassin, it’s your job to turn the tides of the war making friends like Samuel Adams and George Washington along the way.

All images owned by Gearbox Software

Since my midnight pick up of Borderlands 2, it’s an understatement saying that it’s been a tremendous trending event in my life.  I’ve had about a week with the game and I’ve thrown over 40 hours into it so far.  With other places like IGN, Gamespot, and other professional sites giving reviews of having played even more hours than I have, I decided to share some of my experiences and impressions instead.

Any Problem with the First Game? Consider it Fixed

If your beef with the first game was the dry settings, similar AI, and bland/uncompelling story, then start praising Gearbox for taking the time to listen to their audience and fix all these problems.  It’s not uncommon knowledge that the settings are way ore beautiful, the enemies are way more diversified, and the story is much more sensical and even worthwhile.  Even some smaller issues with the game like lack of personalization of your characters are attempted to be fixed.  Beforehand, ‘treasure hunting’ was the primary motivation for the vault hunters, but the game makes somewhat an effort to try and draw why these new characters are on Pandora in the first place.  And if you were confused as to why the originals are in Pandora, seeing them again certainly fills in some plot holes.

Steam has been banning fake games from its service, but it’s also knocked back a legitimate — if rather risque — project. Seduce Me is an erotic strategy game “inspired by the lives of American socialites and celebrities.” Ironically, the developer blames that very same American culture for the ban…

Valve has every right to ban what it wants, and does warn that it reserves the right to block “offensive” material. Even so, this situation highlights the fucked up double standards we have, where scenes of violence and murder are deemed more acceptable — more normal — than images of two consenting adults doing what almost all consenting adults will do at some point in their lives.

Article from Destructoid brings up some really interesting points,

Minecraft is trending hard in my life, so I’m tending to write a lot about it recently.One of the toughest things about Minecraft is the lack of a rulebook.  If you’re not familiar with the Minecraft wiki or the game itself, getting started can be one of the hardest things.  The game doesn’t really tell you how to start or even what you’re supposed to do when you arrive on your randomly generated world.  And if you haven’t seen any videos or don’t have an experienced buddy playing with you, learning some of the pro tips can be difficult.  I learned about half of these for the first time only about a week ago and I’ve been playing for 2-3 months!  So this is for all who could use some tips to make the best of your Minecraft experiences!

1. Pressing Shift While Clicking Allows You to Move Directly from Inventory to Chest or Chest to Inventory

If you need to move mass stacks of objects from one place to another, holding shift while you click is a good way to do that!  Before that, you’d have to click things in individual objects.  This principle can be applied to removing things from ovens, chests, inventories, etc.  Definitely a must if you need to speed move.

I’m not much of a late night talk show guy, but out of the trope, I think I like Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien the most.  The latter has a small series that caters to two of our categories here at Banana Scoop: television and video games.  Conan isn’t much of a video game player, but he’ll often take up the sticks and play a game or two.  It’s really funny how he applies his wit to point out basic plot holes in hilarious ways.  You simply have to see it yourself.  I’ve included his ‘review’ on Minecraft and below includes Skyrim and some others.  Both Skyrim and Minecraft are absolutely hilarious, and I hope he does more in the future!

This is a cool College Humor video that’s been around for a good amount of time, [I remember showing this to some friends in High School and I’ve been gone from High School for a LONG time].  It parodies serious action movies by applying the idea to the computer game Minesweeper.  Hilarious enough, there are some classic movie cliches as well as some absurdist dialogue.  They put some Sin City spin on it [which I think is misplaced, but whatever].

On another note, I actually learned how to play Minesweeper from this video.  But I still suck.  I’d rather play Minecraft.

I Want to Play a Game

This is hilariously cruel.  But it needs to be this level of sick if you have Jigsaw’s face slapped on there with his catchphrase and expect it to be reputable.  A slug’s journey through this labyrinth of hell will likely kill him/her/it as it encounters the many dead ends this maze has.  By the way, did anyone like the Saw movies?  I liked the first couple, then it started getting a little strange.  But I always found it’s creative ways in testing human limits to be interesting at best, before I cover my eyes to guard myself from what’s currently known as ‘torture porn’.
