I would like to personally thank NeutralCreeps again on this one.
Source: Blizzard DOTA joins Dota genre wars

blizzard dotaActivision Blizzard, one of the world's most popular video game companies has announced via Blizzcon, their entry to the Dota genre.

For those who have no idea what the Dota genre is, Wikipedia answers:

The Dota genre is a sub-genre of Real-time strategy video games, characterized by role-playing elements.
Blizzard DOTA will be a Starcraft 2 mod officially endorsed by the developers behind Starcraft 2. It was announced that this will be FREE to those who already purchased Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty. As an official Blizzard map, this wouldn't be just another one of those run-of-the-mill Starcraft 2 DotA clones like Storm of the Imperial Sanctum.

Watch Matt Gotcher (SC2 developer) as he talks about Starcraft 2 DotA.
I really think we are seeing a huge influx of Dota genre games lately.

Other games in the Dota genre:
Dota 2 (Valve)
Heroes of Newerth (S2 Games)

Dota 2 in the Philippines

Dota, one of the biggest hits in Philippine gaming history will be remade.

Say Goodbye Starcraft 2! Hello Dota 2!

Morphling (DotA) saying bye bye to the Warcraft 3 engine.

The Dota based game genre is currently one of the most explosive genres to emerge in recent memory.

Quality games like Heroes of Newerth were made and fail games like Demi-god and League of Legends were done but DotA 2 is the impending king of the genre named after itself.

According to NeutralCreeps, DotA 2 will be developed by Icefrog (yes, that Icefrog)
And everything will be more or less the same with the original Defense of the Ancients.

Game Comparison: DotA 2 will be like Heroes of Newerth without the S2 originals.

Once this game is out, I'm sure it will attract millions of players to get Steam.
Successful mods converted to successful full-fledged games only come once in a while.
The last game to enjoy such super success was another Valve title... Counter-Strike.

5 Fun Facts You Would Probably Want to know about Zuckerberg and The Social Network

Oh I'm sure you would like to zoom in. Click to do so.
The girl on the left side is Rooney Mara who plays Mark Zuckerberg's ex-girlfriend.
As of this writing (Oct 2010), the girlfriend of Zuckerberg is: Priscilla Chan

David Fincher, the director, made almost a hundred takes for the movie's first scene. This is the scene in which that chick on top tries to beaks up with soon-to-be billionaire Zuckerberg.

Mark Zuckerberg has a Facebook page:
He does not befriend you like Tom of Myspace does.

Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg.
Both their surnames end with "berg"
Both were born in the state of New York, US.

Justin Timberlake (yes, that Timberlake) plays Napster founder, Sean Parker.
He (JT) has a Twitter account but it's not @timberlake but @jtimberlake.

Disregard everything above and look at this: Zuckerberg did not enjoy the movie (brilliant)!
