Runic Games was at the Nvidia booth at PAX East 2012. Cory sat down with Runic’s CEO Max Schaefer to talk about Torchlight 2
What has been changed and improved from Torchlight 2?
Everything, but the biggest things is that it’s multiplayer now. So you can play with right now up to 6 people, but we haven’t set a maximum yet, LAN or over internet, as well as single player offline. You can use your same character through all of those. We also have a much bigger world this time that’s half outdoors, and half underground and dungeons. There are also big vast, also randomly generated outdoor areas that span a lot of different terrain types like deserts and mountains. It also has a lot more pets, I think there are eight rights now, and we don’t know if we are done yet. We are bigger better everything
One thing that’s not bigger is the price. Torchlight 2 will be twenty bucks again.

Spec Ops: The Line Lead Writer Walt Williams at PAX East 2012
2K games was at PAX East 2012, and I was lucky enough to sit down with Spec Ops: The Line lead writer Walt Williams. We also have video footage of the interview below, but the footage audio is not synced correctly. We apologize for the technical difficulties .
Can you tell me the story about the game, because it seems like there is something going on besides Spec Ops just being a shooter.
“The story of Spec Ops: The Line is on the top level. The city of Dubai has come under attack from apocalyptic sand storms. In attempt to evacuate the people and colonel john Conrad, who went in to aid in the evacuation. Unfortunately, as they were getting these people out of the city, it was hit about a larger sandstorm and everyone was presumed dead. About 6 months later a distress signal kinda get its way out through the storms, and is picked up by the department of defense. So you are sent in, captain Martin Walker as the head of a just 3 man recon team, sent in to find out if they are still people alive and if they are to get back out and let them know, yes there are survivors we need to send in an evacuation.”
