Gaming News: DOTA 2, Torchlight II!

leave a comment »

I almost play videogames 24/7 [working for a Game company helps LOL] and I was excited about the game news I came across yesterday.

Torchlight II

Website: CLICK ME 8D

^Sneak Preview

~ I’ve played Torchlight since last year and I’m still playing it and enjoying the experience. I came across this game while reading up on Diablo III news. After seeing a few screenies, I decided to give it a try and BAM! Instant game addiction. It helps that they allow modding, from the levels, items, pets, characters and character classes to make the game more fun and replayable.

For me it was Diablo III for kids, as it was the same dungeon crawling experience but on the lighter side. But it lacked Multiplayer, whcih was the only downside of the game…until now. Seeing the Torchlight II site/news/video made me anticipate the game so much now as it proves to be epic.

Just by reading the new features, you can tell alot of people will be pre-ordering this one and/or getting it on its release day. I know I will.

DOTA 2

~ I love playing Warcraft games and especially the DOTA [Defense of the Ancients] mod. I did hear about the news that they’re going to make an official DOTA game with the help of IceFrog [which I think they employed] but this was a big surprise for me when my officemate showed these pics yesterday.

My jaw dropped. These teaser pics were gorgeous! The character designs are such detailed. They’re trying to make DOTA into a game on its own, separate from its WarCraft roots. But it seems that VALVE is now handling the game which is another surprise. We then joked around on the idea of Gordon Freeman, HeadCrabs, GlaDos and even a chocolate cake being integrated into the game. Still, it’s making us DOTA players yearning for it more. If these pictures blew us away, what else would a teaser vid would do?
