    Heck ya, Torchlight is awesome! There are not many games where I’ll play the first right up to when the sequel comes out. I even have my wife playing the 360 version (level 100 Destroyer).

    I’ve been enjoying Lost Odyssey lately. Never completed it back in 2008, so I’m tackling it now, slow and steady. Would definitely recommend for those looking for a modern JRPG, a’la old school Final Fantasy.

    I have the same interest level as you regarding sports games. Last one I enjoyed was Blades of Steel, probably because of the fights you could get into. And the theme song, gotta love the theme song. Still have it stuck in my head. :-)

    Borderlands 2 has been taking up most of my gaming time…

    Glad you’re liking the new system! I rocked Borderlands with the settings maxxed out with that rig, back when…

    Borderlands 2
    Torchlight 2

    Three great games fighting for my time. :)

      Heh, it’s the invasion of the 2s, and apparently they’re all GOOD sequels! How often does THAT happen?!

    My brother just got me Torchlight 2, it’s fun.

    Funny thing is, I chose male embermage as my character, and pet cat with orange fur. Yup, great minds think alike :D (are you specializing in the ice skills? ;) )

    • Brian Rubin says:

      Embermages FTW! And I’ve been specializing in fire and storm skills, ice always bores me as a mage. Between Prismatic Bolt and Magma Spear, plus wonderful wands, I mostly do alright. :)

      • Zeraan says:

        The first ice spell is awesome, shoots 4 or 5 bolts, and it bounces off after hitting something. Pretty decent for trash clearing! I also have the short range lightning spell (can’t remember the name) that I use against bigger guys.

    Definitively agree with all written in the article, space games are my fav but I like every other genre as well, sports not much too.
    And right now there doesn’t seem to be no time to play any of these grand titles, Borderlands 2, Torchlight 2 and a soon-to-be-awesome HAWKEN. shame shame :(

    • Brian Rubin says:

      Oh lord Hawken, I can’t wait for that. If there’s a subgenre I love almost as much as space games, it’s mecha games.

Chime In!
