    The Greatest Multiplayer Game of all Time 9

    When you make a bold claim like I have in the title of this review, you can reasonably expect push back. After all only the Sith speak in absolutes, or so Star Wars teaches us.But when you have played as many different video games as I have (easily over 1000) for as long as I have (over thirty years) I think I can safely say I have a good idea of what good game looks like. Or in this case a special one. To me DOTA 2 is one of the very best games I’ve ever played, and the best multiplayer game ha...

    Dota 2 Review 0

    Dota 2 is not a new game - I mean this in multiple ways. For one, its official release was in July 2013 (at the time of writing, it is currently May 2016); but, even before that, it was put into a playable beta in 2011 - five years ago. But, if you are aware of the origins of the game, you already know that Dota 2 is a facsimile of its progenitor - Defense of the Ancients, a Warcraft III mod that was popular in 2003. I won't get into the history of the franchise in this review; but I do recommen...

    Time and money... best bet. 0

    Sadly this review is after TI4.... the game is kinda dead. You have to understand after the Superbowl this year most people hated football... Yet after all things are said and done they dove back in. Dota was sadly not treated the same way... we had and Superbowl kinda year. After that most people cashed out and called it. I've played Dota for over 12 years and have never seen such a drought. Even in the GiantBomb room... I'm not telling you that this is a bad time to try or get into Dota... All...

    Dota 2 has so much depth in its mechanics, character interaction, but is insanely demanding of its players. 0

    If you haven't started to play a MOBA game or A-RTS, do yourself a favour and never start to play one. These games are entirely too complex, and sport a in-game social scene that is straight up way more toxic than anything you think you would encounter in the early days of online PC gaming with Quake, or Xbox-live playing CoD and the like. You would think that it's mainly a behavioural issue that happens with elite players that have managed to tame the beast that is game; situational awareness, ...

    The Dark Souls of the MOBA Genre 0

    Compared game to Darksouls, review complete. That would make this whole review so much easier, but its incredibly hard to put into words, my excitement and passion for Dota in a way that doesn't make me seem insane. Whether it is watching professional dota which has been consistently awesome over the last couple of years, to playing with my friends whenever i can get a group together, i enjoy all aspects of this game. Despite this know its a hard sell for new players, the game is incredibly daun...
