Impressions: League of Legends: Aatrox

I wasn't blown away with the previous addition to League of Legends, Lissandra, but as soon as I laid eyes on Aatrox, I knew I had to take him for a spin.

So far, we've already taken looks at motion controls and consoles becoming more like all-in-one media centers, and today I'll be continuing my series by exploring the incredible popularity of eSports.
