Ahh, the good old times of Torchlight. A long time ago, I must have been when I was in the 9th grade, I was at a friends house for a sleepover. Unfortunately, both me and my friend have very different sleeping patterns. I woke up at 5, to a rising sun, while the rest of the house was asleep. Not wanting to wake anybody up, I was keeping silent, staying on my fold out bed, not knowing when anybody would rise. I had brought my laptop with me, though unfortunately, it was ancient, and had the technological capabilities of a toaster. I had no offline games to play, and no wifi to connect to. But then I saw it, at the base of my games list, Torchlight. I started a new character, an Alchemist, and played for the next 6 hours while I waited for everybody to get up. Torchlight totally saved me 6 hours of boredom that day, and for that, I am truly thankful.

Yeah this is. I remember being in such situations as well. Good thing you had your laptop, when I was staying over at my friends houses in high school if I couldn't turn the TV down to play the SNES it was all wall staring and reading the newspaper.

Yeah, that was the only time I woke up far too early at his house. Normally I'd sneak onto his sisters computer in their office to play Roller Coaster Tycoon or The Sims.

Roller Coaster Tycoon is an awesome game. I forget, does it run on Win 7 or just XP?

I honestly don't know, I haven't tried it on 7, but I figure it would, most games made for XP run also on 7 right?
