Torchlight 2 adds new pets, bug fixes

Torchlight 2 has issued a new patch that fixes several bugs, adjusts some classes, and adds an Owl or Badger pet to your menu options.


Torchlight 2 has been outfitted with a new patch that, among its various bug fixes and tweaks to current game systems, adds a couple more pets. Now you can have an owl or a badger following you around and doing your busywork for you.

Other additions from the patch notes include Russian and Polish language options, balance adjustments and fixes to the Engineer, Berserker, and Embermage, and pathing and collision fixes. Zombies also only strike once per explosion, and the game won't crash when wearing gear that requires a requirement reduction spell.

Probably most importantly to affected players, the game was apparently keeping some of them stuck without being able to advance their quests. That should be fixed now. But hey, owls!

      I've been having an incredibly great time with my review copy - I suppose I need to get my review done at some point! :D

      Very, very impressed with this game. Quite frankly it should absolutely win the "Best Value" award of the year.

        Though I did like the original TorchLight, I purchased TorchLight 2 and couldn't even play for more than an hour or two. I returned a few times and couldn't ever finish the first Act.

        It's cool that people appreciate it so much, but to me it's very very overrated.

          I respect your opinion but I can't see any logical basis for it, frankly. But, of course, each to their own.

            I didn't mention any basis, either. All is fine. :)

            I do love the company behind it though, and do not regret my purchase. I think they're awesome.

          I've been the same for the past year. Not with TL2, as I've never played it, but with a few other games. I'm having fun playing then I just get bored after like 2-3 hours in. I'm finding it particularly related to class developmental based games. For example, Skyrim, I get maybe 4-5 hours in and then I get "meh". I like the game just hit a wall of boredom with my character. I tried to replay Divinity to the same conclusion. BL2, replays of DA:O, DX:HR., KoA.... Great fun games just I can't play them anymore.

          I'm wondering if its just skills advancements that seem not interesting or I'm not quite feeling a connection to my character. Or maybe as I slowly advance past 40 years old my attention span is diminishing. Dunno. Maybe overall I'm needing a genre change but I really like MMO character development like games. Maybe in my opinion gaining skills has little noticeable impact as we level?

            agree with you, I have the same problem lately, i love the rpg style games but i get bored 3-5 hours in, maybe we feel like we played it all, experienced it all and since all games now are just recycled material we get bored?
