Tom Goldman:
Overall, it looks like Valve is putting together another huge game that has its origins in the modding community.

Okay, I guess I'll have to be the one that asks the question. What do they mean by "another" ? What other game have they made that started as a mod?

Team fortress, counter-strike. Both mods from half-life.

I might care if I actually knew what it was about. If it's a fantasy game, don't mention it in my presence. If you like fantasy, Go ahead, but I personally hate it. I hate elves, dwarves, wizzards, dragons, mages, knights, goblins, trolls (literally and metaphorically), elemental powers, and castles. It's just really not in my tastes. If it's just a game that's not really a genre, more just fiction, maybe I'll care. But really, meh. I don't care.

Looks cool. Never heard of it, but I love RTS's and Valve, so....

Choppaduel:
NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I need my fps's!!!

anything, even an original one

cmon valve

....Dammit. Now I have to change my Avatar.

Meh, DotA got old and now they are just gonna remake it and sell it as a full game with more heros and a graphical update, but why will anyone pay for it.... There is LoL if u want a AoS game or HoN for those who want a copy of DotA minus the warcraft 3 part. so we have the Normal WC3 AoS map called DotA, HoN a copy of that DotA map and LoL a AoS game inspired by DotA.....
why do we need a remake of the first?

God dam valve dont waste your time just trying to jump on this train and spend your money makein a game people will actualy want on steam

Oh stop whining about Episode 3 already, it'll come when it comes.

Seriously, they're trying new things out because they can, deal with it.

Tom Goldman:
and Valve followed it up with a DotA trademark filing two months ago

I thought that trademark was being disputed. Or did that get resolved and nobody told me?

Ill give it a try... just because the dude in the picture up top looks fucking brutal...

Valve branching out to a new genre? It should be an interesting thing to see even if they are just working with already existing material.

Too bad I'm not really interested in RTS'so this isn't one for me but oh well.

imnotparanoid:
No episode 3 then, never even heard of DOTA until valve bought it or whatever.

You must have never heard of Warcraft 3 or something then, its pretty big. Can't say I enjoy it though, takes time to learn competetively and nearly everyone seems to be a huge throbbing penis.

So should I play it first or just start crying now and get it over with?

Seriously, people always say that XBL has a problem with flaming, but DotA is fucking incredible when it comes to mistreating new/bad players.

lol Newell trolled you all =p
Just as I had predicted =D

Sewer Rat:
Umm, valve weren't you supposed to be working on a certain new episode to the game which put you on the fucking map?

Dude, Half Life was released like a decade ago. Wouldn't make more sense to make, like, Half Life 2 episode 3 or something?

Valve really does not like appeasing the crowd, do they?

We already have DOTA 2 its called League of Legends

Choppaduel:
NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I need my fps's!!!

anything, even an original one

cmon valve

You and me both.

What's this shit.. please.. make more FPSs

All I can say is DOOOOOOOTAAAAAAAAA. I can't wait!

imnotparanoid:
No episode 3 then, never even heard of DOTA until valve bought it or whatever.

Remember, pretty much ever game but the half-life games were based around mods. Team Fortress, Counter Strike, PORTAL even, all of them were mods before Valve made them there own.

It is also good to see the developer step out of their FPS roots and expand into other genres.

Arcanz:
DotA? by Valve? omgahd omghad omghad?!?!? I want it, I love DotA and I love Valve. This has to be good.

Me too :D this is gonna be awesome!

Valve, I am dissapoint.

Episode 3 will never be.

Unless they do something about the community surrounding that game (and by do something, I mean something violent and horribly cruel), this won't do well for more then a month, the community in DOTA is awful, it's a community of elitist pricks who don't want anyone new to come on, I've never been on a DOTA server where I haven't been kicked in 5 minutes or yelled at for being a "newb".

As for the lack of Episode 3, I'm convinced there making Half-Life 3 or something at this point.

Okay so that's announcement #1. Pretty cool, never played the original but I'll probably end up checking this out when it comes out.

It's also law now that whenever there's a valve news post I have to ask..."Where is Episode 3!?"

So, valve. You might recall this game called half life. you see it was really good, heck had an even better squeal with 2 awesome expansions to said squeal. Sad thing is that there where supposed to be 3 expansions. Remember that? I know you have otehr things, like L4D, Portal 2, alien swarm, TF2 updates on a minutely basis, and aparantly now digging up WC3 mods to make into full games, but we were kinda hoping the next expansion would come out in less then say, 6 years. You know, cause episodic content meant games could come out more often.

hmm... i like dota and like valve, but i feel this just wont work. dota was all about playing constantly because it had alot of replay value, valve games dont have replay value at all, this sounds horribles in my opinion

@all those complaing about a lack of Half Life: Please note that it's only been 3 years. Half Life 2 took twice that, and there's no reason why Half Life 3 will be any faster. Please politely shut up about it until 2013.

I can understand if Valve wants to try different types of games, but if you start a series, at least finish it.The way things are going, we're going to have to wait at least 4 years, since 2011 seems tied up with other games. It's taking longer to release Episode 3 than it did to release episode one and two.

As for Dota 2, I wasn't really a fan of it in the first place, but since it's Valve, I'll at least try it.

It took them six years to release a full game. The idea of the episodes was to cut down on time between the releases. If it was Half Life 3, I would agree with you.

I love DotA, I played one of the first ones back when they came out, and I've loved them ever since. DotA was one of the few things I actually missed when I stopped playing Warcraft III. I'll totally buy this when it comes out.

Yeeeaaaahhhhhh!

Time to go omnislash some bitches! And by bitches i mean my friends, who are going to loose.

GODDAMNIT QUIT STALLING HALF LIFE 2 EPISODE 3.

Though this does look cool.

Stop whining about Episode 3. I've accepted that there will never been a follow up to Dreamfall, why cant you guys accept no Episode 3?

I think DOTA2 is good news, but I would have been better if they took the opportunity to introduce something new. I think a DOTA with a science fiction theme would have been interesting and more fitting with VALVE. Also changing it up would have made the original DOTA community less pissed off with 'stealing' their game. I wonder if they will change any of the game mechanics...

I never liked DotA in Warcraft 3 and i won't like this.

Why, Valve? Why won't you release some new IP or focus on Episode 3?

Never heard of the game.
I think I'll try this one out, but a purchase seems unlikely at the moment.

*blink* *blink*

...Oh.

(sigh)

Never mind, then.

I've decided to start building a time machine... see you in 2011.

Half Life Episode 3 is the new Duke Nukem Forever, so stop waiting for it.

I thought DotA was a WCIII mod... Wait, TFC was originally a Quake mod and look at how TF2 turned out. This will be glorious delicious cake.
