UPDATE: This is awkward. Moments ago we got an email from Travis Baldree, President of Runic Games, who gave us the heads up that every asset they’ve come across in the game so far is lifted directly from Torchlight. We’d usually catch stuff like this, but unfortunately Torchlight is amongst the bazillion Steam games I own and haven’t played yet. The good news is, if you thought this game looked cool, Torchlight is available on Steam for the Mac and PC for $8.99 as part of Steam’s massive summer sale. That’s 40% off for those of you playing along at home. –Eli
Even if you just poke around on our message board, you’ve probably seen Armed Heroes. It is another incredibly ambitious MMO for iPhone and iPad brimming features we usually see in MMOs on PC, including robust loot and crafting systems, as well as skill trees, PVP, and an expansive main quest. Armed Heroes was supposed to hit this June, but after the studio behind the project discovered some bugs, its US date moved to July. However, it is now available on the Canadian App Store, so go nuts if you’ve got access.
The list of stuff you can do in Armed Heroes is exhaustive, and it’s quite a looker to boot. The below trailer shows off some flashy stuff, and taking this at face, it looks like Heroes has a chance to deliver on its ambition. We’ll keep you in the loop as we explore the game and let you know how it stands up.
