Fun bits: torchlight in my Mac14 Nov 2014
It has been more than two years since I bought torchlight 2 (aka TL2) game in steam. I bought it even before it was release. I am one of those fans who'll purchase the game and wait for a couple of months or so to play it.
When did the obsession started?
Well, TL2 is somewhat closer to my heart. I got introduced to these whole computer games back in the early 2000s with the game called Diablo 2. TL2 creators are the original developers of D2 under the Blizzard North studio and did I mentioned that I end up taking computer science in college because of the game.
When I bought it, I got a free download of its first installment. It was great and I agree with most of its reviews. This pique my interest with the second installment hoping that it will deliver more that its predecessor. Unfortunately, playing it didn't happen because at that time I was moving towards MacOS adaption and made it as my main workstation and wouldn't consider a PC setup for games. TL2 is not available on Mac so I waited and waited and 'till now it is still not supported, natively speaking that is.
PlayOnMac with Steam via Wine
Luckily, All of this can be played on Mac with the help of Wine using PlayOnMac. Installing it is a no brainer.
Just install steam then just search TL2 and install it.
Tidbit of the game
I've been playing it for almost 24 hours now. I didn't only use one character but played all of them (4 classes) but I sticked with the class that is somehow related to what I do in real life :), the Engineer.
This is not by any means a review of the game so I won't cover the mechanics and gameplay. I'll just show some screenshots I took while playing it.
Last few words
This game is epic. I'll be playing this more until I completed the game using all classes available. For now, I'll stick with the Engineer, playing in Veteran mode and beating it.
One more thing, alot of mods have been created using the game as the platform. This will greatly increase value to your purchase. You didn't just bought one game but future games as well.
Hope to play this with the world on the MMO scene.
