Wait a minute.

How do the Zealots eat if they don't have mouths???

They are cheif not the consumers I guess... But who do they cook for...

SlainPwner666:
Huh. I wonder if Valve's sanctioned this, I'm sure they have. Left 2 Die is going to be interesting, probably a third person shooter with Zerglings holding the spot of common zombies, Ultralisks being tanks, so forth and so on.

Have you played Starcraft II? Because it can easily just use Infected Civilians and such as zombies.

I was at blizzcon just got home acctualy but I can assure you the Auir Chef announcer is very over the top and the rest of the games are quite fun.

How about Blizzard DotA?
I was watching the Art panel from stream, some models look nice.

Its a really fun game they use characters from there other games so its not just starcraft people. Though since it is new there are some balancing issues.

Indeed I have. Infact, did a review on it not too long ago. But don't you think that with Blizzard repping up their editor as being able to create whole new games, it'd be a little anti climactic to just copy and paste stuff onto a map and call it DLC?

Left 2 Die has already been announced, and they say it'll have custom zerg, which can pounce [Hunter], vomit and explode [Boomer] and of course the badass unstoppable killing machine [Tank].

Wonder if Valve have a lawsuit ready...

I also can't be the only one who thinks it's retarded to smoke in an enclosed helmet.

I think it is more retarded that you can see lazers in space. I guess it is called Fiction for a reason.

Left 2 die is the starcraft2 Mission Outbreak for multiplayer.

Doesnt blizzard own the rights to dota in some form?

It was created through their own warcraft 3 video game after all

Valve owns a copyright on DOTA so there's more than that going on. As for Blizzard owning DotA, HoN came out already and its almost an exact ripoff of DotA and that games still selling.

Anyways, if blizzard was that hung up about making all styles of games invented by them their own, Tower Defense maps wouldn't exist outside of blizzard. And yet...

Oh, as for how they're making heroes, I played an AoS (aeon of strife, the game DotA was based on from SC1) on battle.net and they were able to make heroes with skills--but there were no attack projectiles.

I like the news for all 4 games and I'm confident they'll be great.
My only concern is that Blizzard will see "Blizzard Dota" as a mini game and not a single entity. Therefore I fear that they won't be able to maintain and update the game as succesfully as other game companies who focus entirely on the Dota style (Hon, LoL, soon to be "Dota"2 and that crappy JRPG inspired one which is awful, but the campaigny stuff is alright).

That is all...

Oh ho ho, Blizzard. Cloning L4D as payback for Valve buying up DoTA? I see what you did there.

Old news, but two things occured to me here:

#1: Does anyone else find it ironic that the hand for L2D is making the Hawaiian peace symbol (or for some of you the "we worship the devil" devil horns... but it looks more like the Hawaain symbol).

#2: I am now wondering if there is any connection between that and Valve deciding they want to trademark DoTA. :P

I, personally, cannot wait for Left2Die and Auir Chef.

The former for the team based gameplay and the latter for the sheer fun potential.

Heh, quite likely.

Blizzard: "Hey, Valve! Try and trademark 'DotA', will you? Nggh!" *middle fingers and shows them the poster for Left2Die*

Valve: *after a long silence* "Oh, Blizzard. You have not heard the end of this."
