Blizzard DOTA Details from Blizzcon 2011

Immediately after being announced at Blizzcon 2011, Blizzard DOTA aroused the attention of players around the world as an internally-developed StarCraft 2 mod.

So, how is Blizzard DOTA different from such games as Dota 2 and League of Legends. Can Blizzard bring players fresh and satisfactory gaming experiences? Now, let's check out what is special about Blizzard DOTA together!

According to the official info, Blizzard DOTA ties a mount system. Mounts will enable players to move faster and look more charming.

The monster system in Blizzard DOTA is totally different too. For example, after being knocked down, monsters in the wild won't die but will help kill foes or push towers as players' teammates. Such monsters include ogres that players can confront independently, troggs that need to be beaten down by 3 players at least, and some mighty bosses.

After being defeated and joining players, common monsters will emerge on the map as little points, while bosses will emerge on the mini map as big red skeletons.

Besides, Blizzard DOTA simplifies and adjusts its systems, in order for players to end each match more efficiently.

Blizzard DOTA's defensive towers are somewhat weaker than those in other DOTA-style games. Players' last hit on creep minions or enemy heroes won't gain extra Exp, but can only receive magic balls which can help recover HP and MP. "Hit and kill" will be replaced by "killed", this is, the system will distribute Exp to those involved in the killing evenly for fear of kill stealing.

According to Blizzard, Blizzard DOTA will be totally free to play, and players can just experience this new mod in Starcraft 2.Some players had tried out Blizzard DOTA at Blizzcon 2011, and it's believed that players can enjoy its formal version soon.

Batman: Arkham City 4.6 Million Copies Sold In First Week

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham City™, the critically acclaimed videogame developed by Rocksteady Studios, has shipped more than 4.6 million units worldwide since its October 18 North American launch on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

The week one sales figure for Batman: Arkham City is more than double the number of units sold of Batman: Arkham Asylum in the same time period and solidifies the game’s place as a contender for one of the top-selling titles of 2011. Additionally, the game currently stands as the highest reviewed PS3™ and Xbox 360 game of 2011 on Metacritic.com with average scores of 96 and 95 respectively.

“Batman: Arkham City is one of the best action adventure games, proven by the tremendous reviews, and it further establishes the Batman brand as a marquee franchise for our growing business,” said Martin Tremblay, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Rocksteady Studios went above and beyond in delivering an incredible game and the support of the entire team at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment drove the excellent campaign a game like this deserves.”

“The true test for any game is what the players think and we have been thrilled by their reaction to Batman: Arkham City,” said Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady Studios. “The team at Rocksteady put every ounce of effort into making the best Batman experience we possibly could, so we are overwhelmed by the incredible feedback from the community.”

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players flying through the expansive Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others, the game allows players to genuinely experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight delivering justice on the streets of Gotham City.

Batman: Arkham City is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and rated “T” for Teen by the ESRB. The game is currently available on Xbox 360 and PS3™. The Games for Windows version will be available beginning Nov. 15, 2011. Fans can visit www.batmanarkhamcity.com for more information about the game.

iPads Sport Pinoy Comics Art

Are you a comic book fan? Are you a techie? Then this iPad is a must for you and you can get it for free!

Collecting artwork is a very very expensive hobby. However, serious collectors invest in art—particularly in one-of-a-kind pieces. But, of course, it's in a different league versus collecting toys or comic books. Moreover, art can always be rendered in so many mediums.

With the recent comic book launches of Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo's "Trese 4: Last Seen After Midnight" and the second edition of Gerry Alanguilan's Eisner-nominated "Elmer," National Book Store is giving away 2 Apple iPads with unique art in the back through a raffle! A "Trese"-fied iPad with art from Baldisimo and an "Elmer"-ized iPad with artwork from Alanguilan.

I've never seen anything like it before. I've seen these babies up close and the pictures shown don't give them justice. It's cool to own an Apple iPad but what makes it cooler is that you get artwork from Pinoy comic book artists!

How can you win the iPads?

It's easy actually. All you have to do is get a copy of "Trese 4: Last Seen After Midnight" and the second edition of "Elmer" at National Book Store and fill out the raffle stub. It's that easy! But I suggest you hurry up because the "Trese 4" promo is only until October 31! "Elmer," on the other hand started last October 15 and will run until November 15.

The "Trese"-fied iPad features the main characters, Alexandra Trese and The Kambal along with the creatures that go bump in the night. Baldisimo outdid himself with the iPad seriously.

The "Elmer"-ized iPad features the gorgeous and detailed artwork of Alanguilan himself. "Elmer" is featured at the back of the iPad and is sure to grab attention from anyone in the vicinity.

Personally, I think that this is real good for the Philippine comics industry. Both "Trese 4" and "Elmer" have great storylines and superb art. Seriously you can get either or both as Christmas gifts for friends. (Just get the raffle stub for the iPad.)

"Trese 4: Last Seen After Midnight" and the 2nd Edition of "Elmer" are exclusively available in National Book Store outlets.

For those who are curious about these two comic books, you may check out http://tresekomix.blogspot.com/ and http://gerry.alanguilan.com/. They will not disappoint you.
