NSFW: Horseplay Podcast EP 1 – Crazy Indie Games & LoL Ranked Preseason 4 Favorites

Posted by Yogizilla on December 13, 2013

Sexy Katarina - League of Legends

WARNING:  NSFW!

After a crazy pilot episode, we really get into our groove with the Horseplay Gaming Podcast EPISODE 1.  Since we do not follow specific themes or scripts, we talk about everything in the 2 1/2 hours we stream live here but we focus heavily on indie games, the ho-hum next-gen consoles, and, of course, League of Legends.

As we will likely do every week, we discuss the most-played LoL champions.  No real shockers here.  ADCs dominate the rankings as usual, making it clear that most just want to kill things and teamwork is often an afterthought.  Lee Sin is moving up the ranks while staples such as Yi, Caitlyn, Ezreal, and Vayne stay amongst the Top 20 in ranked play.

Personally, I’m surprised Katarina is not higher on the list..  She still pwnz in 5v5..  Unless maybe you play at Diamond or higher tiers.  BTW, we also discuss the top skins on League of Legends.  Most skins suck but I think these picks are solid.

Preseason 4 has been super exciting and we are stoked to see what Patch 3.15 and beyond will bring.  The new champion, Yasou, seems to be a flexible champion who can jungle, top, or support.  It also seems that he will be an excellent counter for annoying pokemasters like Caitlyn and Nidalee.

In other news, we discuss the stupidity of big gaming companies shutting down content and enforcing stupid contract clauses.  Amongst the moments in derpdom are the LCS debacle and YouTube’s move to shut down video game playthrough videos.  WTF?!

I discuss games I am revisiting or planning to revisit..  Plus games I am finally getting around to playing in the Dust Off.  Amongst these games is the strangest title I have played in a long time: Insectipede.  With all these ballsy indie games and spiritual successors, I am hoping someone remakes Seventh Cross Evolution, previously on the Dreamcast, the greatest console of all time.

Tired of corporate greed and lack of customer appreciation in the gaming industry?  We are too.  In fact, that is one of our biggest rants in this episode.  Come give us a listen!

XBox One Is Almost Here.. Do We Even Care?

Posted by Yogizilla on November 20, 2013

XBox One and Playstation 4 backstage E3 2013.

XBox One and Playstation 4 share space backstage at E3.

People have asked me this question quite a bit:

Which console are you/should I get: XBox One or PS4?

I say neither.. at least for now. I am unimpressed by the launch titles and, really, I barely touch my console these days. Those of you that follow me on Twitch.tv know I prefer streaming a wide variety of PC games, especially bargain bin deals and sweet bundles. As such, I see no need to upgrade any time soon.

The one thing we can agree on is that the Nintendo Wii-U is in a class of it’s own and certainly does not compete directly (it’s like that by design).  I am sure we can also agree that the PC offers more for less, too.  Thank you, Humble Bundle and Steam.

As far as console gaming goes, I am happy to revive old games and stick to my mainstays such as Black Ops 2, Battlefield 3, Mass Effect 3, and now GTA V.  There are tons of games I can dust off, as well as countless impulse buys in my XBox LIVE arcade library.  Speaking of which, add Yogizilla on XBox LIVE and maybe we can stream together.  That might just motivate me to get excited about console gaming again.

XBox One VS. PS4 Facts & Assumptions

What cracks me up about this whole next generation is how people are all flocking to PS4 still, citing marked improvements to resolution and gameplay.  They also say that Microsoft is invading our privacy and limiting how we access content.  I hate to break it to you, fanboys, but Microsoft and Sony are both doing the same stupid things.  There is a lot of misinformation, silly emotion, bias, and assumptions, even in the above image..  Shame.

I mean, the PS4 will not even play audio CDs or MP4s.  WTF?  If I had to choose one, I would go with the XBox One, simply because Microsoft has the better online experience hands-down.  This is a fact, not an opinion.  Several people have analyzed the infrastructure and come to the same conclusion…  Regardless, I will stick to PC gaming for now and recycling old console games.

While people are camping out to get their new so-called next-gen consoles, the rest of us will be playing the next-gen games right now as we have all along.  I feel like we’d all be more excited if Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo alike could do subsidized sales much like Steam and Humble Bundle.  They just can’t keep up on price and technology, really.  Speaking of which, Steam Winter Sale 2013 is coming and it will pwn Black Friday deals without the insanity!  Also, SteamOS is bringing the PC to the living room in a big way..  GG.

Moving on, I will be streaming more League of Legends and random assorted flavors on Twitch.  In fact, I am about to showcase Guardians of Middle-Earth for Steam.  I love the XBox 360 version so this should be a treat.  For those still stuck on the whole console business, read my article about Why The Next-Gen Gaming Consoles Are Unimpressive at yomar.me, y0.
