First off, today’s amusement comes from people thinking Torchlight 2 won’t stack up well to Diablo 3 because the original Torchlight only improved on Diablo 2 slightly. If Diablo 3 improves on Diablo 2 as much as StarCraft 2 ‘improved’ on the original, Torchlight 2 is going to look like a total overhaul of the genre, and most likely you won’t be charged $60×3 to get the complete game. And let’s not forget that at any point, you might be forced to submit a DNA sample to log into Battle.net and be allowed to play the single player version of D3. First born will be the entry fee for multiplay, to clean up the forums, of course. If there are pennies to be made in selling DNA samples and babies, Bobby is the man to cash in on it.
Did you know Shining Force was recently released for the iPhone? You do now. One of the all-time classic strategy RPGs from the Sega Genesis era has held up well, and is still a charming little title today. Still waiting on Shining in the Darkness to be released though, loved that game. I’m assuming we will see Shining Force 2 released at some point as well.
