|Tangentially DotA-related. Hit level 6? Someone's going to die.|
I tried LoL during the beta, but I didn't like the art style, the levelling mechanics, the cash shop or the samey feel of the heroes so I stopped. I still don't like any of those things but DotA 2 still isn't out and I've been craving an AoS style of game (or whatever they're calling it these days) so I caved and reinstalled it. Since then I've been smashing some creeps' faces with Nasus, throwing people around with Malphite, and generally taking it easy. I'm only level 16 so far but it shouldn't take me too long to get further. If there's one thing I really miss from DotA it's being able to -random and get a random hero from the entire game. There's a random option in the champion select screen in LoL, but it only picks out of the meagre ~10 champs that I've got unlocked, so it's not quite the same.
There's been no release date mentioned for DotA 2 yet right? I can't wait - it and Diablo 3 are the only games I'm really looking forward to this year.
>implying either game will come out this year
|I'm sorry Elsie I'll watch you as soon as I can so please stop looking at me like that|
I was going to write about what anime I'm watching this season, but I still haven't watched even the first episode for half the shows I'm interested in. I finally made some decent headway last night, but I might hold off on blogging about them until I've seen a good few episodes of each so I have a bit more of a basis to go off. Suffice it to say, though, that I've seen both Kaiji episodes within an hour or two of subs coming out and I foresee this trend continuing. ざわ．．．
Other shows that I've watched, or will be watching at least the first episode of, include Ano Hana, Hanasaku Iroha, Tiger & Bunny, TWGOK2, Maria Holic 2, Nichijou and Steins;Gate. C, Denpa Onna and Lotte no Omocha I'll only pick up if they get a lot of good feedback, otherwise I'll probably use the time to get into another VN instead.
On personal matters, I had a scarily productive day today. I went to lectures in the morning, and then went to the library and spent a few hours going through a textbook. Yeah yeah, cool story, but I'm pretty happy about it considering how lazy I am normally. In the afternoon I went to an advanced life support workshop, which was an interesting +1 to the list of skills I have that will probably never be of practical use, unless the old lady next door has a heart attack outside my window and someone's left a crash cart on the road nearby. Less likely things have happened.
