Runic Games recently announced on its Twitter feed that the addictive Diablo 3-esque "click everything until it's gone" Torchlight 2 has sold over two million copies since its release last September. Victory dance commence!
Fans of Torchlght II may remember that word or an official editor has been passed around. In a great twist of humor, Runic Games decided to release the finished editor on April 1'st...except it wasn't a joke. The new editor is named GUTS, and it will allow players to create, tweak, customize, and explore new possibilities in the world of Torchlight II.
I swear, whoever is in charge of setting up sales at Steam keeps an eye on our chatter here, because the past several PC co-op nights we've announced were accompanied by a Steam sale for the same game. Perhaps it's just coincidence, since Steam is always having sales, but I like to think we have some influence on the industry.
Let the great debate begin! It's that time of year. The end of 2012 brings about another round table discussion by the Co-Optimus staff on what our Cooperative Game of the Year should be. You, our beloved readers, have already made your voices heard in our community polls for Co-Op GOTY and Indie Co-Op GOTY.
Sometimes, we as people need to see vampires and werewolves being taken out with a good old fashion pistol or a kickass magic spell. We wish this was the crappy Hugh Jackman movie we’re talking about here, but fortunately for us, it’s a co-op video game instead! Indie developer Neocore Games’ upcoming title: The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, allows the player to explore the tale of a young supernatural hunter, Van Helsing, in his rise to legend.
Torchlight 2 has been anticipated for quite some time, especially after many had sour feelings with Diablo 3. We've compiled a handy FAQ as a compendium to our database entries to help understand the game's cooperative multiplayer. This is everything you need to know about Torchlight 2's cooperative experience spelled out in plain English.
It's been a long time coming, but Torchlight 2 has finally arrived. Are all those disenfranchised Diablo players going to find themselves a new home, one that has great co-op and a distinct lack of controversy? We think so. Read on and find out why.
September 20th, 2012. Torchlight 2 finally has a release date thanks to a big announcement by developer Runic Games at PAX. They definitely didn't want you to forget it as it was plastered all over their booth on the show floor. With the game's release imminent, we sat down and played through a near final build of Act 2 in the game.
Torchlight 2 has been an illusive tease for quite some time now. We've been positively aching for this game while Runic has been polishing it until it shines. It seems as if our prayers have finally been answered, however: the official word is that Torchlight 2 will release September 20th, a paltry three weeks from now!
Some things just need a little more time to cook before they’re well done, much like how Torchlight 2 is coming along. Runic Games has decided to officially delay the game’s release to properly balance and polish the final product.
E3 has come and gone and so has our coverage of the show. We're wrapping up our last few stories today, but there is one story we haven't covered - what games we nominated for Best Co-Op Game of E3 2012. It's a prestigious award that any game would love to keep in their trophy case - but only one can win it.
