In DOTA 3 the valve guy will turn all the way to us, wink, and then perform a "Hello, My Baby" musical number.

I read on Kotaku that they picked up this guy off the street for a photoshoot back in the 1990s. To this day, we still don't know who this man's name is.

How do you know it's the same guy as the previous, non-moving logo?

As far as I'm concerned, it's either the same photoshoot images being compiled together or Valve just adding animation itself with their amazing artists.

In relation to the video, couldn't that video be considered another leak, as in Valve go find out who is this Archie4208/Kuarinofu and give them the banhammer.

No need to ban him, not that they could.

No, I think it's the same core groups that were in the beta prior to The International.

Well, probably minus one now.

Now if he turned his head right round and said boo then maybe or even keep spinning his head like in the The Exorcist while being sick.
I just cannot see how you guys find that scary tbh.

I see it as weird.

He is the Final Boss in Episode 3. They are just slowly teasing us only to reveal it as a grand finale when EP 3 is released!..... 58 years from now

Eek!

I too prefer the original logo from way back, but then I suppose it's what you see first. I think the next should feature a lady for sure.

No, Dota 2 is in private beta at the moment, Icefrog said they will slowly add more and more people as they see fit over time, till the official open beta if I'm not mistaken.

It's not the same guy. I remember reading something about the original guys in the logos were just hired off the street by a casting agency valve hired, and nobody has any idea who they are.

Valve and "scary" just don't go together, so it looks out of place to me, A scary intro with a bright colorful game following it just isn't right.

Because they still want to talk about it. And forum tards would blast them for starting a new thread when one already exists.

I don't think so. It is obviously Coach from Left 4 Dead 2. :cool:
This new intro logo is now also in Portal 2. I think it's pretty cool, a little better than the old one.

if you guys noticed the song is also a bit different from the old ones. It has some different instruments and you can hear a bit of vocals in the background

pay attention to the music here guys

1998 - 2004 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5LXL_IJtog
2007 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t1n-YvI9gg

this tune is used in half life 2 when you get the hazart suit

2012 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6JXDiz0C-s

you hear there are different instruments and some vocal like thing

The 1998-2004 one is my favorite.

They actually don't have the face moving for the CS:GO intro (http://youtu.be/xs4Pf6sRcis), which I like. It also uses it's own music.

I hate how the music is cut half in this intro (around 0:25), otherwise it's really cool. The music should continue in the main menu...
