I never really thought of myself as a writer or a blogger but its always something I’ve wanted to try. I’m going to say this from the start… My grammar and spellings can be at times, shocking but we’ll carry on through that as this isn’t what my blog is about.
No, this blog is going to be me commenting on my transition from console user to PC “master race” with direct attention to the PC game League of Legends. So time for a bit of a back story leading up to this sudden change, as far back as I can remember there has always been a console in my house. Growing up the 90’s meant my first console and most beloved item of my childhood was the PlayStation 1. Me and my dad played all the classics, Crash Bandicoot, Tomb Raider, Destruction Derby were but a hand full of our favourites. From here I progressed to the PlayStation 2 another treasured gem from my childhood and yes, you guessed right from this it was the PS3 which I still own to this day in fact this will be the third PlayStation 3 I’ve owned but I love it. (Also a side note. Call of Duty 4 will remain the best game ever for that console I was in love with that game and still play it ha) but now I own the latest next gen console the Playstation 4.
If anyone actually reads this you are probably thinking I sound like a spokes person for Sony. Like Samsung or Apple, Coke or Pepsi. Sony is just my personal choice mainly because I was brought up with Sony, I mean I even had one of those Sony pebble Walkman mp3 things… No one had those ha and for those Xbox people out there I did for a period of time own a 360 and it just wasn’t for me.
That’s a quick summary of my history with consoles. So why now have I decided to start playing on my laptop? Honestly it all kind of happened by accident. I still have my PS4 but I rarely use it, I’m 23 at the moment and rent my own place… PS4 games are minimum €70 a pop and that is without the DLC season pass bullshit. Take Destiny for example, loved the open beta played the hell out of it but €105 for the game and season pass now i don’t know about the rest of you out there but my retail minimum wage job does not allow for such extravagant items. It wasn’t like I was desperate to play a new next gen game.. I still have COD4 in my PS3 disc tray.
I came across League through a friend when I went over to his house one night and he was playing. First impression was honestly it seemed kinda nerdy I was never much for the spells/fantasy gamer, me, I was always you’re typical FPS COD fanboy but I said I would download League of Legends and give it a go at this point in time my first thought was “this game will never run on my laptop.” People my laptop is going on 5 years old and if the plug falls out it dies, it’s one of those laptops. Yet surprisingly League runs at a cool 29 frames per second.
Little did I know that this one game would lead to countless others, many late nights and even League jokes within our circle of friends as slowly more of them too join us in playing LoL…
I hope you enjoyed my very first post and from here i will write about my dealings with league from not only the perspective of League Noob but also , a PC Noob.
Until next time…
