Here’s a proven, 100% accurate scientific formula:
Anything + Valve = Awesome Anything
Therefore, based on that totally believable and not at all fabricated formula that science has given us, whenever any news comes out of Valve’s headquarters, even when it’s just news about upcoming news, everyone in the NAG office screams like giddy fangirls at the premiere of Popular Movie X Starring Hot Guy Z. We’re done with our delighted squealing now, so I’m here to share the excitement with all of you. A new game from Valve is set to be announced later today.
We don’t know what it is, but all signs point towards it being the Defense of the Ancients game that rumours have been alluding to lately. Valve hired DotA developer IceFrog a while back. They recently filed a trademark for DotA. Jon St. John (better known as the voice of Duke Nukem) tweeted this: “Had a great time in Seattle last week recording for DotA. The guys at ValveSoftware are awesome!” Everything is telling us that the game announced will have something to do with DotA, including the fact that IceFrog himself, together with GameInformer, are the ones teasing this announcement.
We’ll let you know how this all turns out when GameInformer posts all the details later today. We’re still hoping that there’s a surprise within a surprise here and Valve takes this opportunity to announce Half-Life 3 instead. No offense DotA fans, but we need Half-Life more than we need DotA. Not that it really matters anyway, because the scientific formula above still holds true. Love you Valve.
