Torchlight II Sells 2 Million

Runic Games announces that Torchlight II has sold more than two million copies, saying the action/RPG sequel has achieved "record sales" (presumably a record for a Torchlight sequel). They note that the original Torchlight sold over one million units in two years, and Torchlight II effectively doubled that accomplishment in ten months. "I'd just like to say a big thank you to all the players who offered their suggestions on what we could improve, and who stuck with us and supported us during development," says Runic Games President Travis Baldree. "It wouldn't have been possible without you, and we're humbled and grateful at your response."

TL1 = Amazing fun
TL2 = A conglomeration of awkward view, blurred out visuals, clumsy click controls, battles being so stacked full of particle effects that you cant see your character, the enemies, or even your mouse pointer. Throw in multiplayer, and you have no clue if that fire on the ground is from your teammate, or a foe. Just a total mess to play.

D3 may have had horrible itemization, the RMAH, piss poor storyline, and huge balance issues with inferno mode, but at least it got the gameplay "Feel" down right. Blizzard has always been good at that, making the game responsive, tight, and solid feeling, and even during massive battles, you can still keep track of whats going on without any problem. This is why despite TL2 having a more likeable skill system, random generated maps (ie: what i prefer), and better loot, I still have put way more hours into D3 than I have into TL2.
