LoL – Episode 34 – Becoming the Next Legend

Posted on 06 February 2011 by nicolespag

This week we discuss DC Universe Online, StarCraft 2 Mods, Dungeon Raid, Sky Burger, Yahtzee, Pocket Frogs, Mass Effect 2 & World of Warcraft.

DC Universe Online: Nicole/Kim/Stephanie – All say Buy It, but with a huge caveat. Don’t expect too much with community especially with the PS3 version. The game play is awesome but interacting with other players is still challenging.

How to enter the MapHook Contest!
Speaking of DCUO, our good friends at MapHook have partnered with us again to create a fun contest. We would like you to go to either MapHook.com or download the app to your iphone/ipod and create a Hook with a picture of your DCUO character and a little “back story” about them. And for listeners who aren’t playing the game, you can just tell us what kind of hero or villain they would create if they were playing (adding a picture you drew would make it more fun too). You have until February 19, 2011 to get your entry in and the winner will be chosen at random and win a game of their choosing (up to $60 value)! Please be sure to have the word DCUO in the title so the entry can be found. Below is an example from Nicole and the character she created on the Redemption server, Omni Girl! Good luck and have fun!!
