Have You Played… Torchlight?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.I admit, I missed the first two Diablos at the time. Yes, yes, think of me what you will, but I did. I've made up for it since, and the genre is one of my absolute favourite ways to while away merry time. And…

Wot I Think: Dungeon Siege III

The third siege of dungeons arrived a little while back, with Obsidian taking the reins of the Gas-Powered Games-created loot'n'kill fandango. I've been frantically clicking my mouse button at it for the last few days - an act which I have now transmuted into some words. First point of interest for me in any dungeon crawler: can I summon animals? Silently beating up monsters in…

The Human Torch: Torchlight MMO Details

News arrives! VG247 and Shacknews are travelling across the land, spreading news that jaunty tribute blog PC Gamer has revealed a couple of choice quotes from Runic's President Travis Baldree their new issue. The topic? The forthcoming Torchlight MMO. Key points would be "our vision is to have an MMO that plays as close to single player as we can get it." - as in,…

Lighting It Up: Runic Investment And Sales

Runic, the folks behind Diablo-like dungeon-crawler Torchlight - which we talked about favourably when it arrived - have done rather well for themselves. It seems that Torchlight shifted 500k copies, and set Runic up to sell a large stake of themselves to Chinese MMO-imperialists Perfect World (for $8.4m, which would buy a lot of Peggles.) All of which bodes well for the previously mooted Torchlight…

Torchlight’s Editor Is Around The Corner

Dunno about you, but I got pretty burned-out after a few days of psychotic grinding at Torchlight, feeling that, despite the fun I'd had, everything had gotten too samey. So the news of the impending editor, and the vast glut of moddery it promises, is good news - it hopefully means the game's rather limited environments can be shaken up some, and we can have…

Euro-Words: Torchlight, Assassin’s Creed 2

Back from a quasi-week in foreign climes, I return to discover Eurogamer has published some writing they recklessly hired me to write. There's a preview of Assassin's Creed 2, detailing what I found when I nosed at the first couple of hours of the game, and perhaps more interestingly, there's my review of Torchlight. In it, I claim that absolutely everything Walker said it about…

Torchlight Demo On Steam

The demo for Runic Games' charming-looking hack 'n slash RPG Torchlight is up on Steam, and should be appear on non-Steam mirrors soon too. The full game is also out this week on Runic Games own site, and we've been delving into the randomly generated dungeon levels so that we can offer our own verdict later in the week.

Illuminating Torchlight Footage

We're particularly excited about Runic Games' upcoming dungeon crawler, Torchlight. It's looking incredibly slick and colourful, just the kind of thing that jiggles the lock on our treasure chest. Seeing it in action gives us a little more to be excited about, and thankfully some more in-game footage has appeared. This time it's showing off one of the classes, The Vanquisher, who seems like badass…

Darkness Rising From The Deep: Torchlight Trailer

Jim mentioned the rather exciting looking Torchlight last week. A new PAX trailers has appeared, and it's bloody lovely. This is the team who made the mythological Fate, and the ill-fated Mythos. Mythos, created as a tech test for the doomed Hellgate: London (and managing to be the better game) was absolutely fantastic fun. Fate of course is loved and adored by many post-Diablo fans.…

Diabolical Promises: Torchlight

A large chunk of the PC gaming world seems positively frothy in anticipation of Diablo III, but there are other dungeon crawlers on the horizon too, including the splendid-looking Torchlight, from Runic Studios. It's by some of the same chaps who worked on Fate, so it's easy to get an idea of what to expect: randomly generated levels, lovely design, and lots of goblins. It…
