Torchlight review - Extra Guy

I’ll admit I was a bit jealous of PC gamers when Torchlight originally released in late 2009. Hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers have always been something of an interest for me since the original Diablo but it’s a difficult genre to keep up with without a decent gaming rig. Thankfully Runic Games brought Torchlight to Xbox Live Arcade, and us console gamers no longer have to miss out on this gem of a game.

Admittedly, Torchlight doesn’t do much to push the genre forward. It is, however, an experience which has been polished to a sterling shine. The usual formula applies: a lone adventurer shows up in town and gets sucked into whatever catostrophic issue its inhabitants are experiencing. Solving their problem requires descent into a deep, sprawling labyrinth filled with aggressive and deadly monsters. It is also stuffed with ancient weapons and powerful pieces of armor.

Another great Torchlight review. I hope this game sells well so we have a better chance of seeing Torchlight 2 on XBLA.

Jealous???
What, you don't own a PC?
So how did you type that review???
Perhaps he handwrote it and faxed it to the editor...

I never said I didn't have a PC in the review. I'll capitalize the important part of the sentence for you:

"Hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers have always been something of an interest for me since the original Diablo but it’s a difficult genre to keep up with WITHOUT A DECENT GAMING RIG."

Hope that helps :)

Right; I mean, I have several PCs, but only one of them can play Minecraft.

Think about that.
