It looks like 2010 and beyond will be the era of remakes, reboots, reinventions and redo’s. Sega not only reinvented Sonic recently with the release of Sonic 4: Episode 1 but they’re also bringing back the arcade and Sega Dreamcast classic, Crazy Taxi for newer consoles. On a separate page of gaming news, NeoWiz is bringing the story-oriented War of Angels to North America. The gimmick for the game is that players determine their character’s outcome in the same way of Knights of the Old Republic. Valve also dropped a surprise on the gaming community, announcing that DOTA 2 is on its way for fans of the original Warcraft III mod. These stories and more in this October 16th, 2010 edition of the Game Blend Weekly Recap.
