  1. League of Legends was once the most played and most popular game in the world. To this day, it enjoys a colossal following that most games can't even dream of matching. Let's dive into the history of the MOBA genre and discuss some of the game's best qualities and biggest faults. With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode. Outro music: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening 'Sweet Dreams, Koholint' by DaMonz, Christine Giguère, Denis Bluteau (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03825) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available, as well! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. After spending years and years fine-tuning League of Legends into one of the most played games in the world, Riot Games has released a brand new game, only this time they're targeting the tabletop. Mechs vs. Minions takes place within the League of Legends universe and focuses on a scenario in which Rumble has assembled four diminutive Yordle heroes to teach them how to pilot their very own mechanized suits. Players can choose to take Corki, Heimerdinger, Tristana, or Ziggs into the battles against the roving army of minions that threaten the security of Runeterra. In Mechs vs. Minions, players must work together to put on the best defense they can manage against the oncoming minion threat. Up to four players can battle their way through a ten mission campaign. Each mission lasts approximately 60-90 minutes and can be accompanied by a radioplay to add more of a running narrative to the experience. Riot has brought back the League of Legends voice actors to reprise their roles for the radioplay versions of their characters. The tabletop game includes the following bits: 5 reversible game boards 4 command lines (one for each player) 4 painted mech miniatures Ability and damage decks A sand timer A bomb-like power source miniature 6 metal trackers 4 acrylic shards 4 dice 100 minion miniatures Some kind of large object, trying to break through that sealed box... The initial release of Mechs vs. Minions consists of 30,000 copies. As of this publishing, Mechs vs. Minions has not sold out. If the first wave of the co-op tabletop game sells out, future releases will be coming. Riot will update the Mech vs. Minions section of their store to indicate when those might be coming. With Game Day coming up, anyone think they might be picking up a copy of Mechs vs. Minions? Let us know what you think in the comments!

  7. Starting today, rascally poros take over League of Legends' Howling Abyss map for the next couple of weeks allowing players to enjoy The Legend of the Poro King game mode. From today until January 6, players can partake in the most precious battles of all time. The new game mode revolves around a new ability that allows players to throw poros at each other and summon the mighty Poro King. For a few more specifics on the game mode, check out the release page. For a look at one of the most adorable images in the world, click here. Maybe Riot will keep the Poro King as a full champion? A guy can dream, right?

  9. The League of Legends animation and champion creation teams must be working overtime at Riot Games. If today's teaser is any indication, we could be seeing a new champion setting foot on, or perhaps underneath, the Fields of Justice in the not so distant future. The video was posted with the following description: Traders whisper stories of a beast below Shurima’s sands. They say she stalks the caravans that dare cross her domain. They say she hunts those that run, and kills those that fight. But what if the stories aren’t simple stories? What if they’re true? From the video and the description, I think it might be safe to assume that we'll be seeing a fairly mobile, possibly sneaky, non-human joining the ranks of the League of Legends. Perhaps it is a new Void monster? Or Skarner's long lost cousin? Only time will tell. For now we can enjoy a little mystery.

  11. Out of the Shurima Desert steps a forgotten emperor bereft of his empire. From the swirling sands of the desert, he summons an army fit to do battle in the League of Legends. While similar in appearance to both Nasus and Renekton, Azir's playstyle appears to be completely different. He is what Riot Games calls one of their "minion-mancers," able to summon Shurima sand warriors at will and use them to attack adversaries. However, his move set is different from the turret-deploying Heimerdinger. Azir's soldiers are linked with his auto-attack, meaning Azir must target what he wants attacked or else his fighters are as worthless as sand dunes. Riot has taken care to make Azir unique and powerful, while retaining weaknesses learned from their other minion-controlling champions like Yorick, Elise, and Malzahar. For a full rundown of Azir's abilities, strategies, and synergy with other champions, check out the League of Legends reveal page.

  13. Riot Games has been cracking the whip on their animation team to whip up an adorable teaser for their next champion. He's got a big mustache and a love for adorable poros. No details have been released regarding the champion, but the announcement is tagged with the word Braum, which many have taken to be the champion's name. From his gigantic shield and demeanor it might be safe to assume he'll be a tanky top-laner/support. Now, here, have a poro gif. View full article

  15. Tired of calling positions and arguing about pick order? Team Builder is here to solve your League of Legends team composition woes. Team Builder allows players to select what champion, map position, and role they are interested in playing on a team. The system then attempts to match players with like-minded teammates. The system was briefly tested in beta and proved to be so popular that it has now taken up permanent residence on the Fields of Justice. Team Builder is an entirely separate queue from normal Blind Pick and Draft Pick to preserve balance in the other game modes. However, Riot Games has decided that Team Builder will not be available in ranked until they can figure out how champion banning could be effectively implemented. Wait times for queues are estimated to be relatively stable regardless of champion or role selection. However, since Team Builder is just being implemented, the estimated wait times will frequently be inaccurate. As the mode is used more and collects more data, it will be able to give more accurate predictions. For more detailed information, you can check out this FAQ section.

  17. The folks over at HBO seem to think that there might just be significant overlap between the audience of Game of Thrones and the people who play League of Legends. They probably aren't wrong. HBO has apparently approached Riot Games to do some sort of advertising deal. By itself, that wouldn't be terribly interesting. All that it means for us common folk is that we'll be seeing some Game of Thrones advertisements on the League of Legends website. Of more immediate interest, Riot Games is also now working with the HBO team to produce a mash-up trailer of League of Legends and Game of Thrones. What will that look like? We haven't the faintest idea, but we, much like beloved characters in a George R.R. Martin novel, are dying to find out.

  19. This year's Game Developers Choice Awards will take place on March 19 in San Francisco. Most nominees will have to wait until the ceremony to see if they have received a coveted GDC Award, however a handful of special recognition award winners have been announced ahead of time. The Ambassador Award is given out each year to people who have helped games "advance to a better place." Anita Sarkeesian was selected for her work on Feminist Frequency and Tropes vs. Women in Video Games which turns a critical eye on how women are portrayed in video games. Most people will recall Sarkeesian's work after the harassment-wrought Kickstarter campaign for the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games YouTube series. Riot Games' co-founders Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill have received the Pioneer Award for helping to create League of Legends, the most commercially successful free-to-play game, and the most played game, in the world. They are being honored for growing the eSports community and making great strides in large-scale community management. Who do you think deserves recognition for their work during 2013?
