Valve has finally “released” Defense of the Ancients 2, its standalone followup to the wildly popular WarCraft III custom map that spawned an entire genre of computer games.
If you’ve ever wanted to lose your soul to a video game, you can download it here.
There’s code buried in the latest Steam client beta that could mean Valve is planning to add a game swapping function to the platform at some point in the near future.
Kotaku has the details. I’m not going to hold my breath but this would be awesome.
Valve is probably working on Half-Life 3, Left 4 Dead 3, and Source Engine 2 among a few other things according to a leak in the company’s internal project tracking system.
Even if these are only discussions, this is still too much information to process at once.
Valve just announced Overwatch, a new mode for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
But this isn’t a gameplay mode; it’s actually designed for something far cooler and far more useful to the community. Overwatch crowd-sources the task of identifying cheaters.
If only they’d had something like this back in the days of 1.5 and 1.6.
Valve is running an Indie Spring Sale on Steam right now. There are more than 300 games to choose from. I grabbed several including Hotline Miami, Trine 2, and Deadlight.
The Freeman Chronicles is a a 6-episode, live-action series by the teams behind Beyond Black Mesa and Enter the Freeman. You can support the project via Indiegogo.

Even better, the game will only be $20 - unless you pre-order it, in which case it’s $17.99!
Aperture R&D is a brilliant looking new web series coming March 15th.
Valve let go of as many as 25 people today including hardware designer Jeri Ellsworth and its head of business development Jason Holtman. But it’s no cause for concern. Valve CEO Gabe Newell told Engadget that all is well at Steam headquarters.
While this doesn’t look good, Valve is one of the most successful developers and publishers in the gaming industry today. There’s obviously a solid underlying reason for this move.
J.J. Abrams - yes, the same J.J. Abrams behind the new Star Trek and Star Wars films – is talking to Gabe Newell and the Valve crew about doing Half-Life and Portal movies.
The only question now is whether the Half-Life movie will beat Half-Life 3 to market.
