League of Legends unveils Graves the Outlaw


League of Legends is a free online arena battle game that continues to grow its herd of hero characters. The game that is from the company Riot Games, recently disclosed an entirely new mode of game to play in Dominion.





Dominion is a new game form that was announced by Riot Games in September 2011. With this new game type, there is faster action and strategic game play played on an all-new map - the Crystal Scar. It features a new Capture-and-Hold play style. Players choose Champions, similar to the "standard" Summoners in the previous Rift games, except the Inhibitors and Turrets have been removed. As an alternative, the map has five Capture Points. If you capture any one of these points, it will turn it into a Turret for your group or team, and also it will allow it to start producing the minions that the Nexus spawned in Summoner's Rift and Twisted Treeline. The new game type is designed to be much shorter than the usual 45 minutes game. This is about 20 minutes in duration.


Riot Games regularly keep updating the game with new hero characters and recently they updated it with new playable hero characters. The most recent hero in the game is Graves the Outlaw.


About Graves, the Outlaw


According to the game's back story, Graves shares a litigious past with the card-tossing gangster hero - Twisted Fate. Apparently both of these characters were previously card sharks and grifters who found their match in each other. They, then went on to become partners for some time until Twisted Fate made a deal behind Graves back to surrender him to the authorities in exchange for greater power. Graves was taken in custody and only lately escaped. He now wants to take his revenge with Twisted Fate, who was his only friend in the world.


Graves, the Outlaw has the following powers:


  1. True Grit - The longer he remains in battle, he will gain resistance towards magic and an increase in his armor.
  2. Smokes Screen - During combat, Graves can fire a smoke canister at a desired area. It then creates a cloud of smoke limiting the visibility and sight range of his enemies which will reflect on the speed of their movement, giving Graves an upper hand.
  3. Quickdraw - When he dashes forward, he gains an attack speed boost for a number of seconds. He is able to attack his enemies at a speed lower the cool down timer.
  4. Buckshot - Graves has the power to fire three bullets in a cone, destroying all the enemies that come in the path of the projectiles of the bullets. Enemies at a close range can be harmed by multiple projectiles, but each enemy beyond the first will be dealt with reduced damage.
  5. Collateral Damage - Graves can fire an explosive shell that causes heavy damage to the first object it hits. After beating a champion or reaching the end of its range, the shell blows up and causes damage in a cone at the back of the target.

It is made by Ironhide Games and is available through the iTunes App Store for $ 2.99. For all game lovers, get ready for an epic journey to guard your kingdom against hordes of ogres, wolves, trolls, goblins evil wizards and other nasty beasts using a vast armory of towers and spells at your command!





In the game there is an invasion of all sorts of nasty creatures rushing through your kingdom, ranging from orcs, wolves, goblins, orgres and shaman. They are all armed with a number of towers and a few more of special abilities. The aim in this game is to knock each one of them one by one and gathering gold and pumping up your ego as you move on. You will need to fight in forests, on mountains and wastelands and in each stage will need to customize your defensive strategy with various different tower upgrades and special powers.



Kingdom Rush HD is a very strategy oriented and complex game, although the complexity isn’t too much to be handled by a casual gamer. However, you have to pay attention while playing the game; you cannot just kick back with a slice of pizza and play the game waiting for the coins to roll in. You have to strategically think about how to attack the enemies, manage the skill tree with over 35 things to unlock and decide whether or not you want to upgrade a tower as opposed to building new ones.



Apart from the usual set of towers to place, in Kingdom Rush HD you will also be offered some special powers that you can use during a battle. It is called “call for reinforcements” and will be very useful during a battle. It allows you call in for a few soldiers and place them anywhere on the map. Then there is the “Rain fire upon your enemies” which will rain fiery meteors of death from the sky. You can summon for reinforcements, command your troops, recruit eleven warriors to face legendary beasts in order to defend your kingdom from the dark forces. All the special abilities however, are on a timer and therefore you cannot just use them over and over again, but this adds a bit of action and strategy to the game.


Highlights of Kingdom Rush HD:


  1. Epic defense battle that will keep you hooked for hours.
  2. You can command your soldiers and see them battle it out.
  3. You can customize your strategy with eight specialized tower upgrades - Mighty Barbarians, Arcane Wizards and Forest Rangers to name a few.
  4. Over eighteen tower abilities.
  5. Over 30 different monsters as enemies - from goblins to ogres to demons, each with their own skills.
  6. Various game modes to challenge your strategic skills.
  7. The visuals are in high definition illustrating some awesome cartoon art.

Kingdom Rush HD is a game that will take you to your own world and keep you hooked for hours. The touch controls in the game are by far more intuitive than a mouse, therefore making it an ideal game to just kick back on your couch or bed and surrender to the game.

Diablo Vs Diablo 2


In simple words, Diablo is a point and click game where everything is based on simple clicks. Click on your friend to chat with them, click on items to pick them up. If you want you can use your keyboard to perform actions in this game.





To move the character over some area in this game in the game of Diablo, you have to move the left mouse button on that area. In order to attack, left click on the enemy. If you want to prevent walking while attacking, press shift key. Basically there are three classes of characters in Diablo. Very first one is Warrior that is totally based on the physical level of the character. Another one is Rogue that is undisputed master in wide range weapon category. This character has sharp aiming sight and is very quick on her feet. She has got sixth sense that can be used to prevent her from trap that is being set for her. Third character name is Sorcerer that has great understanding capability than any other classes. It has great magical powers but is physically weak among all three characters.



You can find different items available in Diablo. White coloured items are the normal ones while blue coloured items are the magic items and gold coloured items are unique. Every available item has limited validity period so it must be used within its validity period because it will get automatically destroyed when its validity period expires. In weapons, you can see sword that is basically the warrior’s weapon, Axe that can be used for defending yourself from enemy. Even weapons are classified under three levels: light, medium and heavy. You can use shield to protect yourself from attack. Multiplayer option is available in Diablo where up to 4 players can play at a time. Players can connect themselves in battle field either using modem connection or net connection. The best part of this game is that it’s hard to cheat in this game.



However Diablo 2 has achieved its success level after few months from its release. This was second attempt in RPG category. Level of enjoyment is far better in Diablo 2 as compared to its predecessor. Diablo 2 has 5 playable classes that can be played in different ways. Two new characters have been added in the character class along with more number of items and whole new set of enemies to defeat.



Diablo 2 contains same story of good Vs evil where you will find yourself in the middle to fight for the right. Irrespective of the fact that you will be playing this game as a hero, you will be getting safety tips in between the game. Great story, unique sound and background music will surely get you in mood. Dialogue sequence in between the game is quite chilling that give goose bumps. Random generation of maps offers different experience no matter how many times you play. Each map will have different entry and exit point that will increase the difficulty level every time.



Diablo 2 has wide range of weapons, magic items that adds lot of creativity in item statistics and uniqueness of the character. You can spend all the money that you have looted in order to buy good items or can gamble to win more cash. Whole new look of Diablo 2 is very amazing that has new artwork and animation. This game will definitely give you sense of darkness due to dungeons and demons present there.



Good news is that Diablo 3 has been launched in the market but I will suggest you to start from scratch in order to understand the story line of whole diablo series.
