Borderlands 2 & Torchlight 2 Preloading in Steam!

If you haven’t been keeping track of your preorders or are still on the fence if you are going to get them, Borderlands 2 and Torchlight 2 are now preloading in Steam!  If you are a co-op game addict like me, you will probably want to get these 2 games eventually.  Borderlands 2 will be releasing on September 18th.  Some of us ‘Goons will probably be doing some party action for sure since some of us played the first one.  I still recommend that if you haven’t played the first one, you should!  It was a comical game and yet had a serious angle to it.  Of course, not recommended for play when children are around unless you condone it of course.

Torchlight 2 has been anticipated for sometime ever since the first one came out.  The first one was a nice trip back to the days of diablo 2 except Torchlight had very nice 3d graphics.  Part 2 brings new classes to play as as well as co-op!  The first game was only single player but I’m all about the partying up with friends and kicking some butt!  Torchlight 2 should release September 20th.  As always, I recommend grabbing these games in Steam since its very easy to use and it will keep you games up-to-date.  It’s very simple to setup an account and download their Steam client.  Plus it just makes it easier to invite friends to a game.

Guild Wars 2 Countdown, early access tonight

It’s that time again!  For those ‘Goons that preordered Guild Wars 2 there is a countdown currently on their site that will let you know when the access begins.  We will be doing a quick get together around 6pm MST in the guild teamspeak server so make sure to hop in with us so we can get squared away on our game plan(what we will play most likely).  I look forward to seeing you all later tonight!

Guild Wars 2, Early Access Weekend Aug 25th!

Just a heads up for those that haven’t been keeping up-to-date with gaming news.  If you’ve preordered or plan on preordering Guild Wars 2, the early access weekend is August 25th.  You still have time to preorder and get into the weekend action.  I’ll be there with a few guildies and friends.  As always, you will catch us in the Teamspeak server probably all weekend long so I look forward to catching some of you online!

Diablo 3, May 15th, 12:01am PST!

For all you ‘Goons out there that prepurchased Diablo 3 and are ready to kick some demonic butt, meet me and Highgrade in Teamspeak after midnight the morning of May 15th.  We will be getting prepped for some very early morning smack down of the lord of terror or what ever is being thrown at us once the game opens up.  Keep updated on our forums for any other info!

Torchlight 2 this Summer!

In gaming news, it looks like we are going to see Torchlight 2 this summer!  What’s even better, it will support multiplayer co-op.  Personally, that’s what was missing from the first game and it would’ve made it a perfectly rated game if it had it.  According to my Steam client, Torchlight 2 is going for roughly $20 and if you preorder, you get the first game free.  If you already have it, share it with a friend!

Chose new SWTOR Guild Alignment!

A few of us got to sample SWTOR over the past beta weekend and it looks like we really want to play on the Empire side.  I went ahead and rebuilt the guild as Empire and have updated the link in the forums for those that need to sign back up.  If you are one of the few that hasn’t signed back up with the guild due to the rebuilding, follow this link to sign up and I’ll get you back on the roster.  We have until December 2nd to get everyone on the roster.  After the 2nd, they will start setting up the guilds onto their servers so there’s no turning back at that point.  If you forget to sign up, we will be able to add you during early access and when the game is released.
