In Other News – 29 October 2013

It has been a bit of a bad day; I’ve typo’d more today than I ever have – Gavin’s away on a super secret mission, Darryn’s been out of commission, blaming a lack of electricity in PE (the bigger surprise being that there was ever power there in the first place). It’s left me stuck in the virtual office with Zoe, Victor and Stephen – so excuse me, and most humble apologies if I’ve been a bit grumpy today. You’d be grumpy if you were left with them for company too.

In Other News: Xbox isn’t boned yet, League of Legends is a big thing, get virtually real with your Android, and screw you guys, I’m going home.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy being defensive in the comments. Sorry about that.

          Unplugged my interweb so that I can play an offline career with skill-points rather than VC. Made a point guard, but my shooting is not lekker yet. That “social media” is irritating as well. “0 assists you cost us the game” – not my fault that NOBODY in my team can donnerswil shoot! Frustrating, but I am learning.

          How does the LB play calling work? It marks the players, gives me option, but how do I execute? I also have no idea what the hell those play-options mean lol

            I think you get different buttons above each of your marked players heads. So hit x for this one, o for that.

            Did that, nothing happens 🙁 Guess I need to spend VC or skill points on the “legend training” pfff

            Will have to youtube it tonight. Not regretting it. I like the career mode. Just a bit of a challenge since all I know of NBA is There are teams, there are players, there is a ball, there are nets, you dribble the ball and try to get it into the nets 😛
            Those unexplained terms they use everywhere in the game are just a bit much.

    Geoff everyone is entitled to a few bad days. No need to apologize for that. Besides if that’s you being defensive then your still a little puppy of a dragon.

    Geoff I think you should just exclude all the trolls that were rude to you from the Assassin’s Creed competition.
