The Pets Of Torchlight II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Runic Games has revealed some new information about the upcoming action RPG, Torchlight II. The update this time includes a trailer, screenshots, animations, and details about the pets players will have available to them. In addition to a variety of monster types to slay and items to gather the sequel will introduce cooperative multiplayer action, a new user interface, and random dungeons.

The life of a dungeon-clearing warrior can be a lonely one. Friends in your party may not be online, or may be questing abroad. To whom can a solitary skeleton-smasher turn for morale support? Fear not! Fluffy companions await you, whose inventories are surpassed only by their loyalty. Oh, and pointy teeth. Or claws.

The Ferret

The ferret was originally exclusive to the box version of Torchlight, though our clever modding community soon found a way to include his sheer adooooorableness. Don't be fooled by his size, the clever ferret is as fierce as a honey badger. With goggles. Due to overwhelming popular demand, the Ferret returns for all in Torchlight II.

Out Of The Park Baseball 13: New Features Detailed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Out of the Park Developments recently released new articles focusing on the upcoming Out of the Park Baseball 13. This time the articles cover features such as smarter trading AI, random historical player debut, and interactive storylines. The latest edition of the popular baseball simulation will feature 2012 rosters, real-time simulation mode, interactive storylines, league assocations, expanded playoff modes, improved online league play, a redesigned interface, and core engine improvements.

Random Historical Player Debut

Can you imagine a match-up between Cy Young and Roger Clemens? Or Babe Ruth squaring off against the Big Unit? Then get ready for the new Random Historical Debut feature in OOTP 13. This feature will allow you to fill your draft pools with the best players from baseball's past, all randomly appearing throughout your league's history. Will this year's draft feature Honus Wagner, Wade Boggs, or Prince Fielder?

But this doesn't only apply to the rookie draft! You can create a historical league filled with random players from scratch as well. Who will be available in the inaugural draft? A 28-year old Ty Cobb maybe, or a 22-year old Tim Lincecum? Who will be the first overall pick? Of yourse, you may start with random rosters as well if you do not want to run the inaugural draft.

The new historical random debut feature is a great new way to experience historical leagues like never before. Even if you are not into historical leagues at all you should give this a try, it is a lot of fun and you will learn more about the history of the game and its players, both the great and the unkown.

Now more than just off-field injuries

In past releases of OOTP, Storylines were mainly focused on the area of off-field injuries. Have you seen a note that a player was hurt changing the tires on his car? Or maybe that he missed a few games after shocking himself? Well, those were Storylines. There were, however, numerous non-injury-related stories present too. Maybe you read about a player who made a TV commercial selling cars. Or a dispute over a player's age that was causing some controversy. Those were Storylines too. And if you liked those, you'll like what's in store for OOTP 13.

We've expanded the number of Storylines in the game, not only in content, but also reaching further beyond off-field injuries. Storylines involving players' habits off the field, such as driving an RV to the stadium parking lot, might just appear in your league. You might also read about managers making TV appearances on late night TV, or even players caught doing things they probably shouldn't have been doing. All types of interesting, creative and sometimes funny stories are waiting to be told in OOTP 13.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

GameInformer has reported that Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will be making its way to Macs as well as to Windows PCs and consoles. The platformer sequel will give players the chance to play as Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in an all new adventure focusing on co-op play.

In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio,

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners—Mickey with his magical paintbrush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters”—a unique approach to gameplay, pioneered by Spector, where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.
