Launch Date Set For Torchlight II

Brace yourselves dungeon dwellers, Torchlight II’s launch date is finally set! On September 20th, we’ll all be able to pick up a copy of this amazing title. I’ve been awaiting this release for the longest time. During the Steam Summer Sale, I would always check out Torchlight II and it would say ‘Coming this Summer.’ Well, summer has been over not so long ago. They fooled us into thinking it would be available by the end of August. But I guess a fall release isn’t so bad. I’ll take it! I was able to test this sequel out during beta. Let’s just say this game did not disappoint as 5 hours went by so fast in one sitting. I eventually completed the beta was left wanting more. Almost to say ‘that’s it?!’ The multiplayer feature also makes this game 5x more enjoyable. Certainly was something the first was lacking. But Runic Games was awesome enough to listen and give the fans what they thought was the missing recipe for this game. The wait is over, you guys can now play another amazing game because Diablo 3 is boring and those Paragon levels are a half assed way to bring ‘endgame content.’

But why must all these great games release at the same time? I mean, Borderlands 2 is ONLY releasing 2 days before Torchlight 2. Least not forget I still am playing Guild Wars 2 and need to make time to play Darksiders 2 as well as Sleeping Dogs. But I can say it’s a good thing I hit 80 in Guild Wars 2 😉 I won’t have the grievance of missing out on leveling.

Who’s ready for some adventure? Count me in for one in Torchlight II on September 20, 2012!

Castle Crashers Invading Steam Soon

Finally – Behemoth’s ever so popular Castle Crashers on XBLA will now be available for PC via Steam soon. There has been no official release date yet. But at least there’s a confirmation that PC players can enjoy this awesome hack and slash hit wonder that Xbox had the luxury of for all these years. Although I beat this game on several playthroughs for the 360, I’m really tempted to play this again on PC with friends.

The Darkness II Review HD

Are you ready to embrace the dark side in The Darkness II? Or is it a sequel you’re willing to pass up into the light? Some of you who tried out the demo on Steam might be anxiously awaiting for the release of this game for quite some time. Well, you guys can start ripping and tearing off limbs now for the simple enjoyment of mass destruction. I must admit, I really find cell shaded games quite charming. The comic book stylized animations makes some games unique like Borderlands. However, I think I’d rather cause mayhem in the apocalyptic wastelands in Borderlands 2 before purchasing my own copy of The Darkness II. This game looks like it would be absolutely worth while when purchased at least half price. I wouldn’t pay full price for this since the game yields no replay value or addicting multiplayer modes. Cast your judgment now by checking out GameTrailer’s review. You can decide whether or not you want to embrace the darkness or head straight towards the light.
