Design: Dota World

ArtGaming

Three weeks ago I had an idea for a design – a spherical Dota World. In an hour or so, I put this idea to paper. That was the easy part. What followed was three weeks of painstakingly coming to terms with the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator, which I, at the time, was still a novice at. I learned through practice, and I am quite happy with the result. I am hoping to get this approved by Valve to sell during TI7, for which I uploaded the product here. If you like this work, please vote! If it fails approval, it is already for sale through Redbubble here. Keep reading

Bethesda No Longer Gives Out Review Copies In Advance. Good.

GamingInternet Culture

The latest drama in the strange world that is video games, is the fact that Bethesda (known for games like Skyrim, Fallout, and the recent Doom) has decided to no longer send out review copies ahead of the launch of their new games (note: just one day in advance). Games journalists, journalists, and gamers alike are outraged by this decision. This is yet another move by a big game publisher which tarnishes the trust between producer and consumer. At least, to the people who care enough about video games to be outraged by this. I used to be outraged by these type of moves by publishers, but not anymore. And neither should you. Allow me to explain. Keep reading

Pokemon Go: Delving into the Statistics of Evolutions

GamingInternet Culture

Pokemon Go is taking the world by storm. I wrote an article about my first experiences with the game a few weeks ago. At the time, I was working on my master’s thesis, which was a quantitative content analysis. I performed that analysis with SPSS, a statistical program created by IBM. I used Pokemon Go to recharge the battery in between sessions, catching loads of pokemon. Mostly Weedles, Pidgeys and Rattata’s. Because I was in a statistical mood due to my thesis, I decided to keep track of evolutions, to see whether I could discover some statistical facts of the hidden mechanics of Pokemon evolution. Even though lots of databases have popped up,  such as Pogotoolkit, I still think my data has value. And here I am, to present my results to you. Keep reading

How Pokemon Go Brings Strangers Together, A Personal Story.

GamingInternet Culture

Pokemon Go is all the rage right now. Having not even been released officially in the Netherlands yet, everywhere you ‘Go’ you can see people enjoying the game, at the very least in my city of Leiden. Why is that? What is it? A quick introduction on why Pokemon Go is so awesome.

How To Make Dota 2 eSports Even Better

GamingInternet CultureSports

I love Dota 2. I love playing it, and I love watching live tournaments – online. However, something has started to bother me. While some teams get invited, they perform poorly. Exemplified by the victory of Team OG today, a new team which showed every directly invited team who’s boss. Do we really need direct invites anymore?

If you’re like me, you just saw Team OG take a convincing victory over Team Secret in the final of the Frankfurt Major, taking 1.1 million dollar of prize money from the 3 million dollar prize pool. Team OG were the underdogs, they are a recently formed team, qualifying for the tournament, and making it through the lower bracket all the way to take the whole tournament.  Of the 16 teams, and over 6 days, OG proved to be the best, defeating the 8 invited teams in the process. This got me to think about the tournament format. Not that I don’t like an underdog team pulling an offset and defeating powerhouse teams like Secret and Evil Geniuses, but on what criteria are the invitations sent?
