Years later, Torchlight II is almost ready for Mac


Releasing Monday, February 2
Jan 29
 
You mean to tell me 2012's action-RPG Torchlight II isn't already available for Mac? Oh. I see. Well, props to Runic Games for not abandoning the task, then. Maybe I'll play it on my next flight. The Mac version of Torchligh...

Review: Torchlight II


Sep 24
 
Torchlight II was, unfortunately, subject to a number of delays. Originally set for release back in 2011, it's only now become available for purchase. I'm happy to say the wait was worth it. It's a bit rough around the edges,...

PAX: 30 minutes of Torchlight II left me craving for more


One last look at the action-RPG before launch
Sep 03
 
Confession: I never did finish the original Torchlight. For whatever reason, the game failed to grab me -- maybe it was the pacing, the lack of co-op support, or something else entirely. Whatever the case might be, I'll fini...

When I received an invite to the Torchlight II beta, I let out a noise that can only be described as a "yelp." It was a happy noise, one that I wasn't quite sure I was capable of making. "This will be a great time killer unti...

Apr 21
 
It turns out Ordrak is still a problem in Torchlight II even after he's dead. Like most fantasy villains, death is not really an issue for him. This trailer shows three heroes trying to kill him yet again, after the eve...




PAX: Torchlight II is like Torchlight, but better


Apr 09
 
The original Torchlight is an awesome game and there isn't much to complain about. It's fun to look at and incredibly addicting. Torchlight II thankfully doesn't stray too far away from the classic gameplay, but it does feel noticeably more streamlined. It's also bigger -- three times the size of the first game, in fact -- so you'll get to enjoy many dozens of hours happily gathering loot.




Torchlight II has a good excuse for slipping into 2012


Nov 17
 
Those of you in search of legendary loot will have to continue waiting patiently. Though Torchlight II was promised as coming out by the end of this year, Runic Games has confirmed this is no longer the case. Company co-found...
