Used up the last of the funds on my best buy card and bought Dragon Quest IX. Will post impressions later.

 

Last game purchase until NV. :)

played one game of League of Legends last night

 

it's DotA effectively, but it's just a matter of getting a feel for the new characters/items

What about Heroes of Newerth or Demigod?

 

haven't tried either of them

 

LoL has some interesting features

you pick 2 spells to take with you into battle, completely independent from whichever hero you pick

there's a "runebook" that you can fill with runes to give small passive bonuses

and not all the characters are unlocked right from the start - so it encourages you to try different characters, rather than only sticking to one

 

i'm going to play a few more games before i make a definite judgement, but so far it seems okay

Heroes of Newerth - Exact copy of DotA. I didn't really like it, the graphics looked good but everything was so gritty and the interface so clunky (everyone has the same color healthbar and different "glow" colors which doesn't help when playing) that it just wasn't as fun.

Demigod is barely like DotA, less heroes and a very different pace. Haven't played it myself.

League of Legends starts off a bit like DotA, but the pace is very different and it's got a lot of cool little features, a whole system of runes/summoner spells/masteries and it's completely free .

Nunu is amazing on Twisted Treeline. Less heroes means less silence/disables/stuns which means your ultimate will hardly ever miss.

 

As for the art style, it's supposed to be exaggerated. I mean, when you've got a guy like this in your game, you're pretty much making fun of WoW. But hey, it's colourful, good looking and the characters have personality.
