After months of build-up and some extremely unpredictable Playoffs, The International 2014 tournament concluded earlier today after a Best-Of-5 grand final between NewBee and Vici Gaming. NewBee rose to dominance throughout Phase Three of the Playoffs, joining Vici in the Upper Bracket at the start of the main event.
Even with The International 2014 well underway, Dota 2 hasn't quite managed to fully steal the spotlight away from Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, both of which still received substantial updates this past week!

Today, Valve announced a new partnership with sports network ESPN which will see The International 2014 tournament broadcast live on the company's multi-screen sports network, ESPN3. Additional content will be available on ESPN2 on Sunday evening as the grand finale moves closer.
While ESPN as a sports network is usually more focused on Major League Baseball, the NFL, and the NBA, Valve's Erik Johnson believes this new shift comes as a response to eSports, such as Dota 2, becoming more widely recognised as "traditional" sports with true mainstream appeal.
It's been a few months since we last reviewed a game, so today we're going to be checking out Aperture Tag, a paint-themed Portal 2 mod created by Eugenio "Motanum" Roman. The mod looks to combine the dynamic paint spraying of Tag: The Power of Paint with the creative puzzle solving of Aperture Science and the Portal series. With a hyped build-up and an unusual price of entry, is Aperture Tag worth checking out, or has the paint already gone dry? Let’s find out!
