Sitting in for Nick and Chessa in this week's PixlTalk is the one and only Jon "JD" Lewis.

Warcraft developer issues a notice of opposition to Valve's mod based game.

The acronym DOTA may not mean a whole lot to some people, but it apparently means a lot to Blizzard.  Short for Defense of the Ancients, DOTA began its life as a popular mod for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and the expansion The Frozen Throne.  Valve, a company that is decidedly not Blizzard, took notice of the mod’s popularity and began development of a sequel, aptly titled DOTA 2.

Insomniac Bids Adieu to the Chimera

The studio that birthed Spyro and Ratchet & Clank is done with Resistance.

Resistance 3 was a great game and a fitting end to a trilogy that Insomniac started with the launch of the PlayStation 3.  While it was a critical darling, the shooter wasn’t as successful at the register, selling roughly half the copies of its predecessor.  Low sales aren’t keeping Sony from having developer Nihilistic Software bring the series to the PlayStation Vita in the form of Resistance: Burning Skies, but as far as Insomniac is concerned they’re done with the franchise.

Does this mean that the next Nintendo console will see more support?

What Nintendo showed at the 2011 E3 Wii U reveal was only a taste of what their new console would be capable of.  The sizzle reel displayed footage of games running on competing platforms and the conceptual demos were not running on final hardware.  Truth be told, the Wii U’s coming out party may have resulted in more questions than answers.  Nintendo promised strong third party support, but it’s largely been unknown when developers would get a chance to really work with the hardware.

Naughty Dog Has Been Split in Twain

The Last of Us team has been hard at work for over two years.

Usually when a studio decides to reveal a new game you only get a short snippet, not the full length trailer that Naughty Dog revealed at this year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards for their upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive title, The Last of Us.  This reveal was especially surprising since Naughty Dog has traditionally been a ‘one game at a time’ studio with a singular creative team.
