DotA - What has it become? TL;DR warning.

Anyone familiar with Warcraft 3 knows what DotA is. It was a hugely popular custom map created using the WC3 engine and played over It became so popular that the DotA communities and WC3 communities were separated. DotA was practically another game, entirely community driven. It even sparked Basshunter's rise to fame after he sang about it in his remix of Daddy DJ.

But this isn't about what DotA is/was, it's about what it's turned (or turning) into.

Yeah it's awesome, just play it. And don't stop until your dreams come true.

Back after a busy weekend with a few minor thoughts.

I had a busy weekend so I apologize for the lack of posts, but now I'm back with a few ideas for later on in the week which I'll talk a little about later.

First thing, Blizzard released all the Blizzcon SC2 match replays for download including BoxeR vs Fruitdealer. Anyone who missed it or wanted to cast it, here's the download link.

Second, the Korean SC2 clan WeRRa disbanded this weekend over accusations of one of the leaders attempting to molest one of the newer members. For those of you who follow the SC pro gaming scene, you can read about it here at TL.

And lastly, I have no idea what to be for Halloween. I was planning on getting a makeshift zoot suit and going as a 1940's era American type gangster but I haven't been able to find a hat. If I wasn't white as hell I would go as Undercover Brother, but I couldn't pull that off. Any ideas?

Oh I almost forgot to talk about my idea for later posts. Something I've always wanted to do was compare unknown games to similar popular ones to see how they stack up. I'll be looking at things like graphics, game play, music, and controls. Hopefully I'll have everything ready something this week.
