Borderlands 2 or Torchlight 2? Or both…

This week is a bit of a stormer for good games. That means a potential strain on the wallet, or a very tough choice.

Our review of  ARPG Torchlight 2 has just gone live today, with Tim writing that “If you hated Diablo 3, this might just be what you were waiting for – but this is a good enough ARPG that there’s something here for you even if you were a huge fan. Considering the £15 entry fee, there’s really very little reason not to give Torchlight 2 a punt.”

Tim goes on to award the game 9/10, which from us means 11/10 if you’re comparing to some other publications.

On the other hand you’ve got Borderlands 2, a game equally obsessed with loot and dungeon raids, albeit from a first-person perspective and a generous dollop of bad language.

My review of Borderlands 2 singles it out as the game of the year so far (bare in mind this was reviewed before Torchlight 2), saying that it has “one of the richest loot fabrics there has ever been. Certainly when it comes to games that have appeared on a console, Borderlands 2 has the most diverse and best loot system of all time.”

Borderlands 2 went on to receive a 10/10, only our second ‘perfect’ score this year (following Dark Souls: Prepare to Die).

So, the questi0n: are you going to plump for one of the other, or are you going to get both? Which will you get first?
