Last night I went out to grab Dire UFC Undisputed for the PS3 and I saw Torchlight. I've been meaning to try this one out for some time, so I thought I'd pick it up. From the makers of Diablo, Fate and Mythos the cover said. I liked all three of those. Out of the three it reminds me most of Mythos and Fate With some Diablo music. I remember many people writing about this one several months ago, I'm slow at times- going at my own speed.

I really am enjoying it so far. I only got to play for a short bit last night but it is really a lot of fun. Usually I have Dungeon Siege for when I want to play an offline dungeon crawl. I love Dungeon Siege. I don't play offline games very much these days though. Anyhow, I didn't like you couldn't customize the character, then again that made it more like Diablo than Fate in that aspect. And I am stuck playing a male character if I don't want to play the one female class. Other than that I was really happy with the game.

I love the pet, I forgot to name mine so he is stuck as Spot. I picked a ferret, he was just so cute. That was another thing similar to Fate, you pick a pet also. The pet goes to town selling my items for me, very cool. I always wanted a pet to do my bidding! I should have named him Lassie. Also fishing is cool, once again another fate like aspect. (Yes, I know quite a lot about Fate, my son absolutely loves that game!)

I've been interested in Dragon Age: Origins for awhile and not yet had a chance to play it. I was considering it for the PS3 so everyone could play it. I don't know though if it will be as good on the console though. I do know my computer won't do it justice in it's current state, Dire's would though. But then again I wanted something everyone could play. I will probably hold off on this one for now.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Torchlight is essentially a Fate sequel, in case you were wondering. They were developed by the same team who put together Fate and previously worked on Diablo 1 and 2.

    They're currently working on a Torchlight MMO too...

  2. Yeah, I saw the designers listed on the cover. They also did Mythos, which it reminds me of the most I think. Mythos was great.

    I think there is actually a second part of fate- Undiscovered Realms- released in 2008.

    A Torchlight MMO would truly rock!

  3. loved your writing style. your blog is amazing. Have been going through some of your posts, will def. recommend to others. Independence Day India Best Status For Facebook 2018
