Given that my game library is currently full of games that I still need to play and finish, I haven’t really spent a lot on buying new games during this summer sale, except on Day 1 of the sale when I picked up Bioshock Infinite and Dark Souls. Today’s line has some great multiplayer A-RPG games which I would highly recommend to anyone looking to play some multiplayer A-RPG with friends.
From today’s line up my favorites are Torchlight II and Magicka. Torchlight 2 is a great improvement over its predecessor and with multiplayer its a blast. The story line is still quite poor, but the game has some excellent combat. The enemies have way more affixes than the ones that Diablo 3 monsters had, and are more fun and challenging at the same time. One drawback of the game is that there is no option to respec completely. The game allows you to only respec the last three talents that you’ve chosen, however, there is a player mod which adds a respec potion to your inventory, which will allow you to respec. With a level cap of 100, the game promises hours of fun with friends. I’ve myself reached level ~90 as a mage. The great thing about the game is that, unlike Diablo 3 you are not locked into playing the same story line over and over again. After you finish the game the first time, you unlock mapworks, which allows players to buy random dungeons maps with various predefined affixes on players or monsters for endless fun.
