Playing Smite for the First Time

Last night Tony and I recorded an episode of our podcast and decided afterword we should play some co-op. After a brief accounting of our co-op games we decided on Smite on the PS4.

Neither of us had played Smite or any game like it really. I could tell that it worked similar to League of Legends, another game I have little-to-no experience with. As we booted up the game and played through the tutorial, I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. The tutorial did not thrill me. However, to my pleasant surprise, I found myself really enjoying it!

Our first real game solidified my interest. For our first match we played arena mode and I chose Thanatos. As a member of the assassin class I used him to rain death upon our enemies. His skills set is geared toward killing other players. I found a exhilaration when a player would run from me to only die by one of my long distance skills.

One of the things I quickly realized was the amount of depth this game has. Through the store players can customize their characters strengths by equipping and upgrading their items, ¬†purchasing relics, and ¬†getting consumable items. There are many paths to take, and many characters to choose from. This allows for the game to have longevity for me. I can’t wait to play the other characters and learn which are my favorites.

Now I know many of you are probably thinking,  So what? League of Legends is the same thing but better, and you may be right. I should probably play league one of these days.Regardless, Smite is a fun game which takes advantage of many different mythologies to create a fun and unique game! I look forward to playing this game more!

Here’s our replay of that night!
