I enjoy listening to Brad talk about the game. Better than nobody playing games at all, it is a slow period after all.

Soon
Soon

The forthcoming "Daily Dota" feature is soon upon us, and while I'm not a particular fan of the game myself, its grasp on Brad is quite alarming as he is the Anime Editor on the site after all and, not to mention, his seemingly unhealthy obsession at the moment if his stories on the Bombcast are to be believed. I've only played about half an hour worth of the game and realized it was not for me at all, having issues with similar games like Torchlight and Diablo with how... boring they are in almost every regard (also, my poor mouse shouldn't take all that clicking). Hearing Brad recount his daily adventures with the game on the Bombcast is my primary source on the subject, so I don't really mind whatever he has to spill, especially when he's talking about how odd it is to play with another person named Brad.

Anyway, while I don't think "Daily Dota" won't really be "Daily" like the name suggests (God, I hope not, for Brad's sake), do you think enough's enough? Or do you like this sudden spiral into Brad's demise is only a good thing?

Edit: Damn it, site, I just want to edit this.

I have no interest in Dota, but with the lull in games, I don't mind.

I think Brad is kind of losing it. Also, as a League of Legends player whose attempts at playing Dota have ended in mostly confusion... Nah. I don't even think MOBAs are necessarily all that fun to watch, for as much as the streaming community seems to disagree.

More coverage the better. Doesn't matter what it is. Give it the people.

I mean game-wise its pretty dead, so they gotta do SOMETHING. Might as well cash in on brads current DOTA habit.

I'm not really into the coverage as much as I'm into Brad's slow transformation into something not quite human.

Why is it always "yes" or "no" questions, I much prefer "yay" or "nay" questions.

Anyway nay, but I'll get my Giant Bomb any way I can, so I'll probably watch as much as I can of it.

Sure, I don't play the game but it's nice to here someone be generally enthused about games every now and again.

My lack of care or hate for Dota knows no bounds... I just have the feeling it's going to be the end of gaming as we know it. :/

I'm fine with more video content, but if you asked me to choose what game it would be I'd not choose DOTA, put it like that.

Though I guess I actually know what MOBA means now which is nice.

I like watching it more than SC2 but in the end it's one guy and his addiction, something I wish we'd see for things like a JRPG or even a Japanes title like ever. (this level of addiction I mean. I'm more addicted to Dark Souls given the time I've played it in the past six months)

On the other hand, there is nothing else to cover until after the E3 dust settles and I really dig his dedication/addiction and like seeing that combined with a niche game that actually has interesting things to it in its pure raw gameplay.

I'll probably try and watch it simply because its GB content but I find Dota really boring so dont know how long I will last. I'd much rather they played something else.

That would be a beautiful tragedy. And it would be ironic considering Brad played the doctor in collectSHUN.

Just nothing about MOBAs has sounded appealing to me. It sounds like the ultimate expression of games as psychological tricks to keep you hitting that joy button to get the shiny, and with a reportedly hostile community to boot. WoW leveling, but arguably with even less story content or things to say. I mean, I killed many hours playing Counter Strike some years ago, but I don't necessarily view that as a good thing that happened. As an outsider, it seems so blatantly commercial and soulless, I can't understand what keeps people so enraptured by it. That said, I got keys, so hit me with a PM or Steam message (also Kraznor) if you want to ruin your life/see what the crazies are up to.

I have no actual opinion on this, I just wanted to say "DOTA quota".

@twolines: You are the one who sucks. I'm joking of course, but some kind of weekly or bi-weekly show/wrap-up/watch Brad play a game of Dota2 would be cool as far as I am concerned.

Different strokes etc.

One of my favorite things about GB is that is follows the passions of the crew. You can always tell when they are into a game during QLs and other content and when its just about showing the game or dicking around.

Brad is really into Dota right now, I'd rather see his content contribution be with something he's into. The DMC series is fun, but he seems miserable playing them. If its the right format, with some commentary for noobs and others who will stumble on the videos down the line, then I'd love to see a daily series at least for the Dota competition that's about to happen.

Oh man, I didn't even realize this was a thing. Have they said what they'll be doing? Is it just going to be Brad playing, or streaming inhouses with commentary, or watching pro games, or what?

I wish I could play Dota 2, but my colorblindness is pretty much crippling in that game. Worse than Battlefield 3 was before they added a colorblind mode. Still, I enjoy watching it be played by people who can tell what's going on and hearing people talk about it.

GIVE ME ALL THE DOTAS.

But seriously, with the International 2013 Qualifiers in full swing and the ramp up to the tournament it self getting pretty crazy, this is the perfect time to give the scene a bit of coverage. Hopefully by the time the actual tournament happens (August 7-11) Brad will still be into it and can cover some of the goings on during the big show there as well.

I personally don't care about the game either way but I voted yes just because it's more content and I would prefer it has it's own show rather than on TnT or UPF so that thing tomorrow is fine.
