Torchlight II Out Before September Ends!!

Torchlight II 2

I have a confession: Diablo III was a bit of a let down. There’s still plenty of work they have, it’s always a work in progress, blah blah blah. I get it. Sort of. I mean, I was under the impression it was a single player game with a multiplayer option…until it started appearing on lists of MMOs. Wtf. But I just can’t fall in with the hype. Unless of course that hype is for Torchlight II. I’d tap that.

R.I.P. City Of Heroes

RIP CoH

Well. Some absolutely stunning and STUPID news I ran into! City Of Heroes, the best, first, and most amazing Super Hero MMO will be calling it quits. Why? Because “In a realignment of company focus and publishing support, NCsoft has made the decision to close Paragon Studios.” There will be no more purchasing of time or items from the store, and the game will come to a close by the end of the year.

To say I’m yearning for the Sims 3: Supernatural would be quite the understatement. I’ve been a fan of The Sims since day one. Perhaps it stems from an awful need to control everything. Ever.

We came across this story and just had to share it.  Suffice to say, anything you do for 4 days straight will result in medical problems, so knowing when to say enough is key…  However, sometimes too much of a good thing is never enough.

Live Science: “Teens and Video Games: How Much Is Too Much?”

teen-boys-video-games 2

An interesting article regarding that age old complaint: “You play too many video games!” On the surface, this is just another article saying the same old stuff every other does. Makes kids violent, lazy, hurts response time, blah here, bleh there. But it does bring up some interesting points that contradict the usual moaning.
