Dota 2 6.79: Patch Analysis: Heroes

Ok, so I tried to cram all of this information into a single post, but it hit the post character limit. So with the General and Item changes out of the way, here they are, the Hero balance changes from the recent Dota 2 6.79 patch. Did you unlearn what you knew about gold, day/night, the jungle, and lane equilibrium? Good, now prepare to do the same for just about ALL THE HEROES.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Patch 1.06 is live

Remember that Injustice: Gods Among Us character balance patch? Well it's here, and hopefully it'll save us from the same few characters being used in tournies over and over. Black Adam and Zatanna are probably the biggest tw...

Rogue Legacy for Linux and Mac 'very close' to done

Right before it released on Steam, I was mostly hopeful -- but still somewhat worried -- about whether or not Rogue Legacy would catch on, which I believed the game fully deserved. It has. And gosh, that makes me happy. ...
