On Valve's DotA Game

Voiceover artist Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem tweets of his work for Valve, revealing plans for a Defense of the Ancients game: "Had a great time in Seattle last week recording for DotA. The guys at ValveSoftware are awesome! Going to PAX? Might see you there - Sept3-5." Thanks Joystiq. IceFrog, developer of the original DotA modification for Warcraft III, joined Valve in October 2009, and offered indications earlier this year that a DoTA game announcement was coming soon.

make an open world Diablo clone (that uses robots)

Holy hell great idea.

Crazy cyberpunk robots just rushing the shit out of you as you fight them off with lasers and bombs.

I'm down.

It sounds like a crazy idea until you start to think about it. Using robots removes all sorts of stupid self-imposed limitations. Everything from character design, weapons, armor, and violence (no more blood and gore to worry about) along with the fact that since your robots are already doing large amounts of violence you can justify anything else you want to put into the world.

WWII was used by every game designer imaginable, then zombies became popular. I'm gonna make the claim right now: robots will be next.
