Torchlight II Announced For 2011 85

Runic Games has announced a sequel to the popular action RPG Torchlight, planned for release in Spring 2011. One notable improvement from the first game is Torchlight II's inclusion of online co-op play, with LAN support and a matchmaking system. "The sequel will feature an updated version of the Torchlight editor, randomized overworld areas complete with weather effects, random dungeons, a selection of pets, fishing, limitless loot, and a retirement system which will allow users to retire an older character and bestow some benefits of it to a newly created character." An MMO set in the Torchlight world is still in development.

    I missed that trend. I'm a player of Valve's games mostly, and heaven knows that they couldn't release annually if they tried.

    First thing, you need to go back on the meds. I know they make you feel like a slug during the day, but it makes all of us feel safer to be around you. Especially when you are cleaning your guns. God, I almost killed Frank when he mentioned that Fallout3 should have had at least token multiplayer while you were at the target range. I thought we were all dead.

    Second thing ... instead of paying sixty dollars for a full price game, maybe you should wait until the games are cheaper so you won't feel so ripped from the lack of single player content. Um, don't get up. It was just a simple suggestion. You know ... let the early adopters take the hit and then you can get it used and not feel so ripped off.

    Thirdly ... calm down, I'm almost done ... if playing multiplayer makes you so upset, maybe you should avoid it. Or play with only vetted friends. ... what's that? you want to play with me? well, i'm busy these days ... no, of course I'm your friend. Why would you think otherwise?

    And just remember, it's just a video game. okay? you feeling better? There's no reason to load that gun now. Can we please talk? Did I mention I hate multiplayer just as-

    Diablo II also required spreadsheets for even causal play
