Valve has been released new Dota 2 patch the Bladeform Legacy Update featuring Juggernaut’s Arcana. In patch news, this release includes a new Captains Mode interface, a redesigned model for Jakiro, the 7.03 gameplay update, and various improvements to game performance.


Yurnero’s mask has been cleaved in two, awakening the ancient souls that once laid dormant inside it. These spirits have become one with Yurnero, giving him both the wisdom and fury of his ancestors. This symbiotic relationship has transformed the Juggernaut into something new and terrifying... a celestial force of nature.

Hi Guys,
Probably all of you played or at least heard the title "DoTA"(Defense of the Ancients) - a very popular custom mod for Warcraft III, based on the "Aeon of Strife" map for StarCraft.
Well... there's new one coming soon! Its not DoTA 2 and its not even developed by IceFrog (Valve).
Wait... WHAT??
"Asians" decided to create a new MMO called "DoTA" (Dark of Three AncientKingdoms online)...

Dark of Three AncientKingdoms looks pretty much exactly as the original DoTA and the combat system is the same - well, there is one feature that is "unique" to original DoTA, 10vs10 which makes it interesting + there are about 90 heroes!
Its only a matter of time till Blizzard or Valve will take them to court - but will they win?
In Asia (especial

Valve always seems to be able to find a way to remind everyone that they do, in fact, love video games. This time they're doing so with an announcement that F2P MMO titles are now available for download on their Steam platform.

Currently, the offered titles that are downloadable are Champions Online, Forsaken World, Global Agenda, Spiral Knights, and Alliance of Valiant Arms. All of them are, of course, free to download and have no subscription fees. Cash shop functionality will be handled by the same Steam Wallet system that Valve currently implements with Team Fortress 2's optional shop items.

Valve's New Game Is Dota 2.

Just a moment ago,I read an article about that Valve will release the new game--Dota 2. Valve describes the game as "a massive sequel for one of the most played games in the world." It seems they want to make a better DOTA, but I am considering whether Valve can create new game elements and game ideas to players.  Here are some contents from the article:

GameInformer.com spilled the first official details, saying that the game runs on Valve's Source engine and includes voice chat. Gameplay appears to be faithful to the series' roots, supporting three-lane maps and focusing on multiplayer competition (with artificial intelligence taking over for players whose connections drop.) Graphics are upgraded, though said to follow in the original cartoony style bi

This article is written by Steve Bogda, the columnist of Damnlag. So the rules for being a gamer with good taste...I agree all of those expect the 'blizzard' one, how about you guys?

1) You must have enjoyed playing either Portal or Fallout 3. If you did not, then you should considering picking up another hobby, like archery or air guitar. Or jumping in front of trains. 

2) You must either own a PS3, an Xbox 360, or a high powered PC. If you own a Wii, then here's a yummy lollipop, and a shiny nickel for you to veer your attention towards. 

3) You must know who Peter Molyneux is, and because you do, you must find him incredibly creepy. If he seems like a normal, everyday kind of guy, then you're not so normal yourself.



4) You must believe that Shigeru Miyamoto can beat the hell out of anyone. With his mind. 

5) You must know that gamers who only play a mix of Halo, Gears of War, and Call of Duty are complete douchebags who should be castrated. These are the same people who blind you with their brights while driving and vote for GOP candidates. 

6) You must believe any ratings board association is a horrible immorality that destroys creative freed

I don't expect this to make any splashes or front page but this is just a quick blog post for all those Valve fans out there. Fake Factory Final is out and it is a whopping 12 gigs. 4 times bigger than the original game.

If you don't know what Fake Factory is, it is a mod for Half Life 2 that improves the graphics and HD quality cinematics by using a moddified Orange Box Engine. The mod currently makes Half Life 2 the most resource intensive game out there (Yes it makes crysis look like crap in some areas)

Recomended System Requirements:

-4 gigs of ram ddr2 or higher

-A dual core processor

-high end 1000 mb + video card or a high end 512 mb video card (only a select few can run it smoothly)

-Highly recommended to run on a 64-bit system

You can download it here. Size of the file is 12,135 Mb. (approx 12 gigs). Time to download ? Forever.




Natural Selection 2: Its like Starcraft turned into an FPS

New Game to Use Valve\'s Source Engine

August 28, 2007 - A development team based in Santiago, Chile, is using Valve's Source engine to create a new first-person action game.

Zeno Clash is being built around up-close, first-person melee combat and is set in a "punk fantasy" world, according to Valve and newly-formed developer ACE Team.

The first chapter of the game is set in a chaotic world in which the main character, Ghat, has been banished by his own brothers and is forced to journey across a forbidden desert.

ACE Team is a new studio comprised of professional game designers, artists, and programmers who have worked on a number of games for both PC and Xbox Live Arcade platforms, according to a joint statement sent out by Valve and ACE on Tuesday.

The Source engine is the core technology behind Valve's Half-Life 2.

"Working with Source gives us the features, tools, and flexibility we need in an engine to bring to life a game world beyond anything seen before," said Andres Bordeu, game designer with ACE Team.

The game is scheduled to be released sometime in 2008.
