41. Re: Torchlight and Torchlight Demo Relea Oct 27, 2009, 23:15 Alamar
 
You are aware that some of the people at this developer were the original Diablo folks, right?

Not that that makes ripping others ideas off right : )

However, that's basically how this industry goes, so it's all good : )

As for Borderlands... Torchlight is a REALLY good example of what Borderlands has done wrong... At least in one very specific manner...

For me, Borderlands has like practically 0 replayability... All the classes can use the same weapons, though with some talents and what not that improve them individually... They each get one unique ability, and most of the talents are just passive damage/defense/etc bonuses...

Torchlight on the other hand, has a talent tree with options.. I'm playing a Destroyer now, and having a blast with my charge, and stomp, 'cleave' like attack, etc... But even in that class, I could go a different route and improve my magic abilities, go with other styles of AOE, or some single target options... Then we go to the Vanquisher class, and while some talents do cross classes, the class does play quite differently.
