    The Steam Machine is in the hands of the masses and David "Xerin" Piner takes a look at why they are not necessarily exciting, revolutionary, or realistically noteworthy.

    If you haven't been following this new feature, you can find the first and previous entries at the bottom of this page. In simple terms, I play a game I have never played before over a 24 hour period. If I like it enough, I'll grant it “Time Extended” coverage until I feel satisfied that I've uncovered all that it has to offer. Today, my Time Extended with DOTA 2 comes to an end.

    If you haven't been following this new feature, you can find the first and previous entries at the bottom of this page. In simple terms, I play a game I have never played before over a 24 hour period. If I like it enough, I'll grant it “Time Extended” coverage until I feel satisfied that I've uncovered all that it has to offer. This week my Time Extended is still continuing with DOTA 2 though I sense it could be coming to an end...


    My greatest concern when first playing DOTA 2 was the confusion as to how Valve can possibly balance a game with dozens of unique Heros. Considering massively multiplayer games tend to struggle in the balance department with only a handful of classes, in such a competitive game as this it seems odd that Hero numbers continue to grow.

    I joined some friends in DOTA 2 this evening. Bots are generally fine though a little twitchy, but unfortunately I don't imagine they give you a buzz like you'd get from killing or being killed by a real player (while being abused by team mates of course). This evening then, I joined a couple of friends for a few games of random drought to really see what all the fuss is about.

    "Go and play with bots you scrub". 

    That sentence isn't exactly how it was said, as I've removed a number of expletives and curses. Welcome to DOTA 2.

    In this new feature I'm titling 24 Hour Time Limit, I'll be playing a random game of my choosing over (you guessed it) a 24 hour period to give you a run down on just what I think of it during that window of play. If the game peaks my interest and warrants further play, I'll grant it a “Time Extension” where I'll then play and cover it until I see fit. First up is DOTA 2
