In what has to be one of the oddest pairings they've had to date in their "Battle of the Games" feature, GOG.com has pitted Runic Games' action RPG Torchlight against Starbreeze's FPS The Chronicles of Riddick. But what makes this particular shoot-out particularly interesting is that neither title is available on GOG.com... yet. Torchlight in particular will be coming soon for $14.99, which hopefully means that Torchlight II is on its way to the service too:
Torchlight. A booming mining town that grew up around unbelievably rich veins of Ember, that rare ore with the power to enchant--or corrupt--everything it touches. It's a powerful thing, and everyone knows power, well. Power can corrupt, too. You'll set out into the nearby mountains and depths below to discover the full extent of Ember's influence on the civilizations that have come before.
Choose from among three character classes, and venture from the safety of the town of Torchlight into randomly generated dungeon levels, with a huge variety of creepy monsters, endless variations of loot to find, and quests to complete. The endless randomization ensures that you'll never be playing the same game twice. A fun, crunchy action-RPG, this one game that oozes style, care, and polish out of every single pixel and is a definite must to pick up if you like RPGs or just having some mindless fun.
