Runic Games Has Released the First Torchlight 2 Update

I've been playing a lot of Torchlight 2 lately and I must say this is an awesome game. (Diablo naysayers please don't launch a tirade here. Please know that the Torchlight 2 devs made up Blizzard North; they were responsible for developing the first two Diablo games. I'm planning to play both games so relax. ;) )

That's my Engineer. A slain Undead Champion lies destroyed in the foreground.

Runic Game has truly hit the ground running; barely a week after the game's release, they've released the first patch. You can see the changelog and the first video of my "Let's Play Torchlight 2 HD (Engineer; Normal)" YouTube series after the jump.

Black Mesa Source, a Half-Life Recreation Effort, Launches in 10 Minutes

So after three years of check the page every week for updates, it has finally come to this:

Scratch that. By the time you read this, it has already launched. What is Black Mesa: Source? Why should you care? If you're a hardcore gamer you know what it is. If this is the first time you've heard of this free full version first-person shooter game that just launched, you should still have an inkling of what it is just by its title alone if you're a person worthy of the title "gamer."

Nvidia GeForce 306.02 Benchmark Results

Okay let me skip to the verdict: if you're using an Nvidia card, replace your current driver with this one. While the benchmark numbers don't show much improvement (with the X3: Terran Conflict Rolling Demo benchmark test churning out exactly the same figure as the Tweakforce driver I benchmarked a week back), things are a lot smoother with the new Nvidia GeForce 306.02 driver. Recording  my "Let's Play Darksiders 2 PC HD" is now a more enjoyable experience. Here's a sample clip:

Black Mesa Source's Impending Launch (Release Date Announced)

So I told several people it didn't crawl under a rock, croak, and die but nooooo they wouldn't listen. Ah sweet revenge. Black Mesa Source, a freeware full version Half-Life 2 mod, is a Source engine-powered remake of the very first Half-Life. I've been yammering about this science fiction-themed mod for years now (since 2008 to be exact) but it wasn't until May of this year that I've heard news that it's going to be finally released (after their missed 2009 deadline). Now though, their website is showing a countdown timer and things have just gotten real all of a sudden. The free PC shooter is going to launch this September 14.

Here are some comparison screenshots of what you can expect from this downloadable PC game:
