    Dota2 – The International 2014


    A lot of the charms of Dota2 come from how it focuses on the pro scene. This is how Dota has been since before Dota2, the primary has always been to tournaments, to pro play, balance, depth and of course… complete and utter chaos :-)
    To those who watch pro dota, you already know how very different it is to your regular games. Get ready for more of that.

    Dota2 Advanced Mechanics Guide


    Welcome five people in the world who will be reading this. I will be using as few little words as possible to provide a more quick and compressed learning experience on a game that you will probably never be good at. Not because the game is too or unnecessarily hard. In fact it’s pretty easy to get into, but simply because you aren’t very good. For your own sake that is a fact you should accept as soon as possible, if you haven’t already. Luckily for you though it’s also a pretty fun game once you get the hang of it. Reading all this compact info will improve your knowledge of the game and hopefully make you a better player in turn, though obviously no one will be holding their breath for that to happen… So let’s get started.

    Steam Summer Sale 2013 Day 5 vs Amazon Summer Sale

    My Journey from Windows to Linux as a gamer : Which Linux distro should I choose?

    The Linux Journey

    Slm all,
    The news site here at Muslim Gamer has been neglected for long enough that I thought its time I updated with a new post. This has been due to a few reasons, the main one being work and time. Ill just quickly add in here that our forums are always active along with updates on the Muslim Gamer Facebook and Twitter pages. OK onto the main subject…

    I have been dealing with Linux on and off as all our gaming servers and sites run on a Linux servers. So while I have some familiarity with Linux, I have never really worked with Linux in a desktop environment, more so just command line, SCP and FTP to update the sites and for VPN’s. For those that don’t know, I am a bit of a privacy nut. After all the recent talk of Prism after the Edward Snowdens leaks, it was in a way the straw that broke the camels back. Asad from our forums is the spokesman for Linux. In fact, Ill be pushing for him to start posting in this series (there’s your invite Asad). He has been pushing for everyone to at least try Linux and see how it can work alongside Windows.
