Runic Games has been
periodically teasing the pets you'll be able to bring with you when
Torchlight 2 launches, but the company's saved an in-house favorite
for last. Longtime Runic fans will be familiar with Falcor, the
studio's almost-annoyingly-cute in-house mascot – who's just made
the transition from “sitting on laps and pretending to understand
videogames” to “being in videogames and probably still not
understanding them.” Come on, face facts, almost no videogames are
designed with canine comprehension in mind. Anyway, here's Falcor's
in-game likeness, the Papillon.

We've heard the Torchlight 2 release date teased for a while now, and while the studio's still not
quite ready to mark its calendar, it's promised to release as soon as
possible – as long as that doesn't mean stepping out directly into
Diablo III's shadow. Which is surely selling Falcor a bit short: when
one side deploys a weapon of such devastating cuteness, what competitor's really going to come back with, “yeah, well, I haven't shaved”? At this rate they're just going to have to let the games
speak for themselves or some such craziness.
