See League of Legends in action

Like any self-respecting nerd who spent time with Defense of the Ancients in their youth, we can't wait to get our mouse finger on Riot Games' League of Legends. If you're still on the fence about this action/RTS/RPG hybrid (or are just now hearing about it) allow the above video to educate you.

Though the gameplay looks good, what we can't so heartily endorse is the video's dialogue. "Now, you may be asking yourself: 'What exactly is a MOBA?'" Really, guys? That's the "A" material?

[Update: Andrew reminds us of a very important fact we neglected to mention: League of Legends will be totally free to play. In fact, you'll only be spending cash if you want to customize the look of your character.]
