League of Legends season two – coming soon

Posted: 29 Oct 2011 11:44 PM PDT

League of Legends is a popular game for PC which is taking the gaming community by storm. The first season of League of Legends is done, but Riot games who created “LoL” (League of Legends) is planning for a second season. Throughout the year, players all over the world will compete competitively against each other for a prize pool of 5 million dollars! The Final championship tournament will be worth 2 million dollars!

Riot games is constantly updating League of Legends, one new mode they are adding is called “Spectator” which is exactly as it sounds. It’ll allow players who aren’t playing in the match to watch or spectate the match from both sides and check out stats and different builds. Currently, spectating is only available in custom game modes during “testing periods”. Riot will most likely expand this feature into the actual matches eventually but right now it’s not ready to be implemented.

The new Mario Kart 7 is due to release in December for Nintendo 3DS, just in time for the holiday season. A new accessory from Hori is also being released at about the same time as Mario Kart 7, it is a 3DS compatible steering wheel. It’s priced at ¥1,280 (about $17). Very similar concept to the Wii Steering wheel often used with the Wii remote and Mario Kart Wii.

The Hori Steering wheel for the 3DS, has a similar design and grip as the Wii Steering Wheel. If you enjoy using the Steering Wheel on your Nintendo Wii with Mario Kart or just enjoy playing Mario Kart in general, you could go pick one of these steering wheel’s up if you enjoy using the Nintendo accessories/attachments while you play Nintendo Wii games. The 3DS Hori steering wheel has tweaked shoulder triggers and has the Official Nintendo Seal of approval.

RIM PlayBook OS 2.0 pushed back to February

Posted: 29 Oct 2011 11:39 PM PDT

Anyone who has a Playbook from RIM the same creators as BlackBerry, may have wanted OS 2.0 which was said to be released soon but that won’t be happening for a few more months. The Vice President David Smith for the Playbook said that the new OS will be delayed until February of 2012. The reason for pushing the date further back is to fix any glitch’s or technical problems they may have with the new OS. RIM wants more time to test new features and to make sure OS 2.0 has a long beta test.

Blackberry is well known for BBM (Blackberry messenger), sadly the new OS still seems to not have BBM available for use. Since each phone uses a “pin” system to add other contacts who have Blackberries and you can only have one pin, the Playbook seems to have a problem and won’t have BBM working for now. In the future that would be a great update for the Playbook.
