Torchlight is an absolute must for fans of Diablo. This previously PC only project was developed by Runic games. Two of the designers behind Torchlight also worked on Diablo II, Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer. Torchlight is all about dungeon crawling, massive loot, humor and a good story. You won’t be able to play co-op, but the singleplayer campaign is packed full of that addicting hack and slash that Diablo II gamers are used to.
Beyond Good & Evil marks an incredible era in 3D adventure gaming. The title packs a wonderful storyline, creative characters, great combat, cool mechanics, gorgeous looks and more twists and turns than one of those whacky bendy straws your seven year old self loved so much. Beyond Good & Evil HD is set to be an outstanding refresh that, hopefully, leads perfectly into more news of Beyond Good & Evil 2, a game that’s quickly becoming more a case of vaporware than reality. This is one of Ubisoft’s definitive classics, and for 800 points ($10) it’s an outstanding deal. Buy it.
This event is shaping up to be a good one. Rest assured that Bejeweled Blitz, Full House Poker and Hard Corps: Uprising are all strong games should your preferences meet their qualities.
