GameSpot Asia Beat Ep. 8: They're All Going to LOL at You

We speak up about League of Legends and discuss what makes it so special among MOBA fans. We also bring up Team Fortress 2, Darksiders II, and Sleeping Dogs.

In case you haven't heard, League of Legends is a pretty big deal in Southeast Asia right now. It's probably the characters and art style, or it's the fact that it's both simple to get into and complex enough to warrant international tournament credibility.

Whatever the case, listen as Garena's Aaron "Djehuty" Khoo and CNET Asia's Aloysius "longadin" Low dish out some MOBA love while I chip in early about recent non-MOBA fares like Darksiders II and Sleeping Dogs. All this and more on Southeast Asia's top video game podcast.

Darksiders has a lot of "Get/Do 3 of X" type of questing like in MMORPGs that gets tiring. The PC version needs a lot of work to be done on it. One of the bugs that I came into was at Karkinos' fight. I had to use a trainer to pass it :|

 

I'm around 15-16 hours into the game and am praying that I do not run into any major bugs.

 

Nice podcast btw :) And lmao at GANGNAM STYLE!
