    Torchlight Price Drop to Celebrate XBLA Launch

    The title says it all. In honor of the launch of Torchlight on Xbox Live Arcade, the game’s price has been permanently dropped to $14.95, effective last night (that’s 1200 MS Points). And that’s for every version of Torchlight available: Mac, PC, Steam, or Xbox. If you’re still holding out on giving this game a chance, now’s the time. It’s cheap, and it’s pretty much everywhere you need it to be in order to play (short of those of you that only ever game on a PS3). I’ve only delved into Torchlight through Steam a few times, because I’m not a point-and-click adventure gal on the computer. But, on the Xbox? Well, that’s a whole new animal, and I’m willing to give it a go. Hopefully you are too.

    Pokemon White and Pokemon Black went on sale on March 6. Both titles smashed sales records from previous versions of Pokemon. Pokemon White and Pokemon Black sold more then 1.08 million units after just one day. The previous record was 780,000 set by Pokemon Diamond Version and Pokemon Pearl Version. “Longtime Pokémon fans are attracted to the new Pokémon, new battle systems and a new region to explore, while newcomers enjoy the ability to jump in and have fun right away,” said Charlie Scibetta, Nintendo of America’s senior director of Corporate Communications. “These sales numbers illustrate the continued strength of the Nintendo DS family of systems.
