Global gaming videos: 'League of Legends' Cataclysm, high-speed Mario, 'Warcraft 3'
Wednesday 09 March 2011
Among the most viewed gaming videos for the week ending March 9,
League of Legends profiles its own form of Cataclysm, a modified
Super Mario World imparts more high-speed shenanigans, and the latest batch of
Warcraft III matches are replayed.
On YouTube, free-to-play League of Legends introduces its newest paid-for character, Jarvin IV. One of his special moves is named Cataclysm - a cheeky sideswipe at World of Warcraft.
The ever-affable SeaNanners proposes a new mini-series to chart his progress through to the Black Ops grading system, and PC game Magicka parodies Bad Company 2: Vietnam with an expansion pack of its own.
Japanese video site Nicovideo has a sped-up Super Mario World and a sniggering demonstration of Super Street Fighter IV 3DS's super-easy special moves high in the weekly chart.
The top three at China's Tudou is comprised of Warcraft III replays: recent matches and a best of 2010.
