Torchlight II only £2.99 on PC

Torchlight II is probably the best PC game around for dungeon crawler fans right now and it's only £2.99.

Diablo III still a bit pricey? don't worry Torchlight II rocked our world on release, showing the big studios how dungeon crawlers should be. Jon gave the game full marks in his review, praising the deep but accessible hack n' slash combat, engaging visuals and a huge exploreable world. At £14.99 it was great, so £2.99 makes it essential.

Thanks to Jesse148.

It's hard to overstate just how brilliant Torchlight II is. I described this superb dungeon crawler as "practically perfect" in our  10/10 Torchlight II Review and I still dip in today.

This cheap PC games deal will net you the game at an 80% discount vs Steam RRP, while the 4-pack brings things down even further. Thanks jaystan!

Big savings on all things Torchlight over at Gamersgate

The Torchlight franchise is currently part of Gamersgate's Holiday Sale - Click here to view all the offers.

Here's another highlight of today's new crop of deals from Gamersgate, with the Torchlight series getting some seriously cheap deals.  Torchlight is currently just £1.99, and its sequel Torchlight II just £2.99 (making it cheaper to buy them individually than as part of the Complete Pack... but only by a few pence.) However, if you have 3 friends that you wish to experience the RPG fun with you should consider the Torchlight II 4-pack for just £8.97. It works out at around £2.25 a copy, and considering the quality of the game (and amount of mods available) it's more than worth every penny.

Torchlight II does the business if you're a fan of action RPGs. In fact, it's easily one of the best ever made. Putting Diablo III to shame with massive heaps of content, LAN options and a huge new editor, this sensational effort from ex-Blizzard staffers warranted a perfect score last year, and can be yours for six quid (£1 dearer than Gamefly's spring voucher code deal, we admit).

Modders Rejoice! Torchlight II Patch Has GUTS

Runic Games detailed the additions coming to Torchlight II in patch 1.22.x.40. As well as a host of new pets, armour sets, and maps, the patch will fully unlock the GUTS modding system, which allows players to alter virtually every facet of the game using Runic own dev kit toolset.

Not only that, but GUTS is fully supported in multiplayer, and has Steam Workshop integration. Oh PC gaming, how we love thee.

Forget Diablo III, Torchlight II rocked our world late last year, showing the big studios how dungeon crawlers should be. Jon gave the game full marks in his review, praising the deep but accessible hack n' slash combat, engaging visuals and a huge exploreable world. At £14.99 it was great value and now it's at its lowest price yet, under a fiver, we couldn't recommend it more.

Did you miss the Gamersgate deal a month back? Well, Steam are running a little sale on Torchlight II now and it's only a penny more than GG's was. Frankly, paying less than a tenner for the RPG of the Year is an utter steal.

You can also pick up its predecessor for £3.24.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

It didn't matter if you were a Western RPG fan, or a connoisseur of JRPGs; whether you were in it for the story, the combat, the epic loot, or all of the above, there was an RPG for you this year. Many of them were hybrids, many had taken on elements from other genres in a bid to grow and expand, many of them were franchised entities, building on games that had come before in evolutionary manner. Projects went abandoned, revision left untouched, there were timesinks aplenty - too many worlds to save, characters to get to know, destinies to fulfil, and legacies to forge.

And loot. So much awesome loot.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Borderlands 2

We described Borderlands 2 as "the best co-op shooter of its generation" and it still holds true to that accolade. Outstanding AI, superlative scripting, one of this generation's finest villains in Handsome Jack, persistent RPG mechanics and upgrades, and more loot than we knew what to do with, Borderlands 2 was a huge step up from its predecessor. Not that Borderlands 1 wasn't great, it's just that its bigger, badder, bolder brother was so very pleasing.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Dragon's Dogma

It was broken in places, and Gransys was one of the more forgettable worlds we've seen from an RPG, but Dragon's Dogma was one hell of an endearing game. Breathtaking combat, an innovative Pawn mechanic, and deep customisation options made it a firm favourite in spite of its flaws. Plus, the opportunity to take down a hole bunch of mythical beasts made it all the sweeter. Refreshingly mature.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Final Fantasy XIII-2

Square delivered a game that built upon, and corrected a number of the mistakes of, its predecessor, whilst sacrificing none of what made FFXIII an attractive proposition in the first place. This was a game that made few concessions to genre unbelievers, preferring to reward the faithful with some fine examples of fan service. It wasn't perfect, and it doesn't quite stand on its own two feet, but rather made a bid to be the game that FFXIII should have been...and it largely succeeded.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Big Huge Games made a big huge game, and one that was good for hundreds of hours of addictive questing. The brilliant combat and compelling skill system deserved stronger characters and a more imaginative, less insipid setting, but Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning absolutely nailed the 'Playing Game' aspect of RPGs. With gameplay this good, we were willing to forgive the compromise in the 'Role' department.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Mass Effect 3

The third and final entry in the Mass Effect trilogy was a stunning achievement. The combat systems were better than ever, the multiplayer hugely enjoyable, and there was a sense of scale and heightened emotion that drove everything. But it was the excellent pacing and wonderful writing that rung out, providing us with some of the most memorable moments in videogaming. It's just a shame that BioWare rushed and ruined the ending. The journey was sublime; the destination found utterly wanting.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

The Last Story

If last year's JRPG spectacular - Xenoblade Chronicles - gave us forward-thinking genre pinnacle for our times, this year's The Last Story sought to create the definitive traditional JRPG. Sakaguchi's opus was beautiful, and gave the Wii a fittingly epic swansong.

Game of the Year Awards 2012 | Best RPG

Torchlight II

Runic Games may have less than 40 developers on staff, but they delivered what was perhaps the best loot grinder since Diablo II. Practically perfect in every way, it shamed Blizzard's third effort in the aforementioned franchise through comprehensive content and exquisite execution.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Selecting the best indie game of 2012 is no easy task, and not just because there are so many fantastic titles to choose from. As independent and boutique gaming continues its meteoric rise, it's getting harder and harder to define what the word 'indie' really means. Is it one man in his bedroom or garage? A relatively large team with a multi-game deal from a major publisher? What was once an ostracised segment of games development has become a massive part of the mainstream market, and a force to be reckoned with over the coming years.

We've taken the decision to include Fez and Journey in 'Best Download/Marketplace Game', which went live earlier today, simply because the competition is more relevant in that category.

So, down to business... and Merry Christmas!

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

A Valley Without Wind

A Valley Without Wind is enormous, life-affirming and brilliant. Enormous randomised worlds, tight platforming gameplay and infinite scope for exploration made for an addictive indie classic.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Dear Esther

Though only a 'game' in the most tenuous of senses, this interactive oddity still gives us pause for thought and introspection. Dear Esther may be maddeningly surreal and abstract, but we'd urge you to give it a go.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Defender's Quest

One of the very first indie games of 2012 proved to be one of the very best. Defender's Quest managed to perfectly fuse RPG and tower defence mechanics into a gloriously compelling experience, which we're still dipping into eleven months after launch.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

FTL: Faster Than Light

If you love roguelikes, space operas and always dreamt of being the one in the big chair saying "Make it so!" then this is the game for you. FTL is massively replayable, hugely rewarding and genuinely thrilling at times. Engage!

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Hotline Miami

Hotline Miami is a sleazy, shocking, often unpleasant and thoroughly worthwhile use of a few hours. Dennaton Games' "f*ck 'em up' is as compelling and exhilarating as it is brutally raw.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Lone Survivor

A one-man masterclass in effective survival horror design. Utterly tense, disturbing and unforgettable despite its two-dimensional trappings.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Thomas Was Alone

Thomas Was Alone is a bona fide indie masterpiece that reminds us that you don't need glitzy graphics to create relateable characters with meaningful depth. A minimalist triumph.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Torchlight II

Runic Games may have less than 40 developers on staff, but they delivered what is perhaps the best loot grinder since Diablo II. Practically perfect in every way.

Game Of The Year Awards 2012 | Best Indie Game

Vessel

A truly superior puzzler and one of 2012's most cruelly under-rated games. Massive quantity and exceptional quality made for a truly wonderful purchase, brought home with exquisite art direction and liquid modelling.

Torchlight 2 Visualisation Charts Three Years Of Development

Runic Games has released a Gource-powered video that shows how Torchlight II evolved throughout its three painstaking years of development. For those in the know, it's a fascinating romp through the iterative development process - but for others it will resemble a full-scale assault from the Crystalline Entity.

We gave Torchlight II a perfect score in our recent review, praising the 33-man team for creating an exceptional, versatile and above all fun dungeon crawler.

Torchlight II Review | Practically Perfect?

Platform: PC

Developer: Runic Games

Publisher: Perfect World

Is there such a thing as a 'perfect' game?

Speaking objectively and empirically, probably not. How could there be? After all, something as subjective as a videogame can't please everybody, nor could it live up to all of our expectations. Speaking as a critic, identifying and reporting flaws is important for our readers and developers alike, who genuinely appreciate our feedback and take it to heart when designing their future games and patches.

But sometimes a game can cater to its target audience so comprehensively to be considered perfect. After months of delays, Torchlight II is finally with us... and I'm hard-pressed to find anything wrong with it. Runic Games have taken the dungeon crawling, loot grinding, power levelling ARPG sub-genre and made it more fun, iterating on every aspect of the original while fixing many of the problems inherent to the genre. Blowing the niche wide open, allowing players to get involved on their terms and play it the way they want. All for £14.99.

It's a sequel that, for some, will feel like the true successor to Diablo II - not just the original Torchlight.
