Music Monday – DJ Sona – Kinect

Music Monday – A game themed song every Monday I already dropped this one on Twitter and people thought it was a good idea. I don’t think there are enough people promoting the awesome sounds of games and my growing game OST map only shows that more developers are willing to give us access to just their songs. Expect awesomeness, but if you have suggestions, please let me know in the comments or on Twitter.

This is one of the songs Riot Games made for the new Ultimate Skin, DJ Sona. She actually has her own soundtrack which she plays for her team mates. The skin isn’t out yet, but I’m going to buy it. I love Sona, and this really is a great idea. She can switch forms and has a different song for each form. Team mates can opt in to listen to her songs or opt out if they want to listen to their own music. /toggle will let you change her form.

I’m not a big fan of dance music, but lately I’m listening to some light dubstep while gaming, because it’s relaxing. I thing DJ Sona’s songs will fit perfectly in that playlist, although they’re slightly more aggressive. All three songs have their own still. This one, Kinect, fits very well in the dance-genre, Concussive (DJ Sona’s red skin) is more on-beat. It reminds me of SSX3’s soundtrack, which I think still one of the best. Ethereal (DJ Sona’s blue/purple skin) is very mellow and the most relaxing of the three.

I honestly think that Riot is doing a great job in producing high quality music for League of Legends and for the lore. I mean, Pentakill is one of my favorite albums and The Curse of the Sad Mummy is still on repeat.

Dreadknight Garen Skin

Do you want more free skins? Of course you do! Riot is giving away the Dreadknight Garen skin and all you have to do is follow one of their accounts. You will get a code which you can redeem in the shop in-game. This one is Twitter promotion. So, if you have a Twitter account (or make one just for this promo), head over here and Spin to Win!

As with the other skins you will get the champion for free if you don’t have Garen yet. I have no idea until this promotion runs, but I don’t think they’ll stop this one soon, since the Unchained Alistar and Riot Girl Tristana promotions are still running also.

[Update: 9-4-2014] You asked for it, so I looked it up. I found the skin for free for all the other regions as well. Click on your region to claim your free Dreadknight Garen! Don’t forget to share this post with your friends so everyone can enjoy their free Garen champion and skin.

Arclight Varus Skin Giveaway

[Update 26-3-2014] All keys have been given away. I hope everyone got the key they wanted. I will keep my eye out for more and new giveaways. There are still people in the comments who wish to trade keys from other servers. Help them out if you can. Share the love. If you didn’t get this skin, you can still claim Garen, Tristana and Alistar for free. Check out the links on the right side.

Alienware will be giving away the Arclight Varus skin throughout the month of March. These keys are limited, so get them fast. You can sign up and Alienware will send you an email with the time when you can claim a key. The keys are for NA and EU server, although they don’t specify for which EU server they are. You’re only able to claim one key.

I received this skin from a mystery gift and I like it very much :) As with the other free skins, even if you don’t have the champion, you will be able to claim the skin and thus receive the champion for free.

[Update 07-03-2014]The first week of the giveaway is over! Didn’t get the skin? Don’t worry, Alienware is still giving them away for the next three weeks :) I noticed that the EU giveaway started at 19.00 CET (10 am PST). They also mentioned in the mail that it’s very likely that the keys will be gone within 15 minutes.

Also, check out Mark’s comment below. I have no idea if it works. It didn’t feel right for me to claim one of your keys. Please let me know if it works. Also, if someone could send me the starting time of the NA release last Tuesday, that would great :) We can help each other.

[Update 11-3-2014] Cato confirmed it to work. Share the love. If you have a code for EU server, consider sharing it with someone from the other EU server :) Tonighy is another NA giveaway! Be ready!
