Shortly after my last post I found out that I had a Runic Games’ Torchlight 2 open beta key in my mailbox. Runic Games released the beta as a way to stress test their servers for the internet play co-op feature. Considering that TL has been one of my favorite games recently, and definitely my most successful mod, I jumped on the chance to give it a whirl.
While TL2 is much of the same, I absolutely love that about the game. And, while the beta held enough content to almost stand on its own as a full game, it was only a small part of the full release. Spanning up to level 21 and containing one of the primary boss battles, the taste that we were given shows that we’re definitely in for a serious treat. I really can’t wait until the full release and, more specifically, the release of the modding tools.
Admitting that I probably spent too much time playing Torchlight2, I should also mention that I had a more focused reason for it. I recently re-acquainted myself with CamStudio and discovered VLMC and figured this would be a perfect chance to test those products out in video creation. There’s been some glitches, but I’m impressed with their capabilities so far (not to say I’ve done too much testing yet).
Hopefully I’ll make another post soon on with the link to the Torchlight 2 video and what I encountered in creation of the video.
