Doesn't matter if TL2 and D3 were exactly the same and released on the same day, one is $60 and one is what, $20? Less?

$20

IF I were project lead on TL2, I'd have cancelled the game altogether by now. D3 is around the corner.

There's quite a bit of difference between the two games, not the least of which is the level of control each developer is imposing upon the game. D3 is going to be locked down, while Torchlight 2 will be open to modding and the like. Runic has said they aren't particularly worried about Diablo 3 given how different the two games are, not to mention that the original Torchlight had lengthy and sustained sales which I'd imagine they expect with the sequel. There's also the not-so-small issue of budget, Torchlight 2 won't have to sell nearly as many copies as Diablo 3 in order to break even.

I'm practically foaming at the mouth for either game, and both Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 will be pre-order puchases. Now if only either company would give me a release date!

Once this patch lands, I'll be playing BF3 again. Lots of excellent balance work in there.

I pre-ordered so I'll be happy to play Karkand while waiting for them to improve the other maps.

Some balance fixes on the unlocks have been blogged about by DICE- flashlight and IRNV nerfs are on deck. I haven't heard anything about frag rounds or guided tank rounds yet though.

Guided tank rounds by themselves are fine, it's the fact that they're a fairly deep in MBT unlock that's kind of shitty. Just an example of the types of balance problems present in the unlock system. They managed to get most of the guns close together in terms of performance but the attachments/unlocks are where the problem lies IMO.

I hate to say it, but CoD:Black Ops had one of the best unlocking systems, in my opinion. At a certain level the weapon would unlock, then you spent cash for whichever weapon attachments you wanted. Allowing for some level of discretionary unlocking on the players part is still the best way to go, I think.

The only good thing about Brink is that it has made me much more cautious when it comes to pre-orders.

I haven't been so disappointed by a game in a long, long time.

I tried this and have one question, does the digging speed up? I mean I was getting a little sick of mining one pixel at a time...

It will always be one block at a time with the pickaxe, though you can create new ones that will go through a given material faster, say 1 hit to mine a stone block instead of 4.

Then there's explosives, which are entertaining and will definitely remove more than one pixel.

Crap. Now I really need to finish my first Skyrim playthrough so I can get back into Terraria, though that may not be a wise decision. This game has the habit of making hours disappear.

For $2.50, everyone should own it.

*sigh*

That HL:Origins teaser only serves to remind me of just how much I want the next installment in the series. One day Valve will announce the next game, and I'll probably drop dead from pure joy before I ever get to play it.

A lot of this is the reason I'd switched to Rush instead of Conquest--everything plays better in Rush in my opinion. Even 32 player conquest is typically superior, though it begs the question of why bother supporting 64 players if you aren't going to design the game around that kind of player count.

BF3 is starting to call my name again, and I've just about hitthe wall with Skyrim, so that extended leave from BF3 should end soon.

Dungeons of Dredmor made it into the library late, when I noticed it going for $2.50. At that price, and with the almost universal praise I've seen it get, I couldn't pass it up.

$10 for the entire Dead Space franchise should be an instant purchase for anyone that hasn't played them.


This is the first Steam sale that's gone past where I've purchased so little: only Orcs Must Die+DLC found it's way into my library. I think a lot of it has to do with the ridiculous number of excellent games that have come out in the last few months; I'm simply content with what I have in front of me right now, so I can wait for better sales later on.

Fortunately there's not much due in the next year or so (that I know of) that has my attention, so I'll hopefully have some time to catch up on all the gaming that needs to be done. Now if only Runic or Blizzard would hurry up and give me my hack-n-slash fix....

The performance gain on Skyrim with my 5850 was noticeable, but I've also picked up a silent CTD while playing. I don't know if this is due to the small Skyrim patch or the new drivers, but the 11.11b are installing now, so we'll find out.

Yo Bucky! I see Runespell is on your wish list - it's down to $2.50. I gotta grab that one this weekend.

My first thought reading that was "It is?" I'll have to pick that one up on the last day. My Steam sale rule of thumb is that if it's 75%+ off or under $5 I'll buy it for later, though that's a large part of the reason why my Steam library just continues to grow.

I'm hoping Hard Reset will get a daily sale--I had a lot of fun with the demo and it would make for a good diversion from Skyrim (while I wait for the tactical light in BF3 to finally get turned down).

Wasn't hard reset 75% on the FIRST day:??

I know SOMETIMES they do all of the sales over on the LAST day.....who knows.

Unless I missed a day, no, I'm pretty sure it hasn't had a daily sale yet. Does anyone know of a way (or website) to track the old sales? I'm gonna try lookin' through Blue's sales listing, but I'm hoping for something a bit easier to wade through.

Was waiting for this thread to say this...

Dead Island and Deus Ex at $25, but Space Marine at $33.5 seemed so odd to me...

-Alamar

All of those games are on my list, but with the number of games I have right now I'll wait until they all hit better (75%+) sales before I pick them up. There are just too many good games this year. It doesn't help that Skryim is taking up every minute of gametime I have, either.

I think they cleared all of it from the system after the forum hack rather than requiring people to come and do it themselves.

meh. Mine was still there.

Steam removes linked credit card information when a user changes his password.

I did not know that. It certainly explains it, since I changed my password after the forum hack, even though I don't use their forums. It's actually a good security measure, now that I think about it.

I'm using a 5770, and Skyrim has been extremely stable with the 11.10, and now 11.11 drivers. Around 10 hours in, and no crashes. In fact, it's running the game flawlessly.


Ditto here with no crashes.

30+ hours here with no crashes, though my framerate will occasionally tank for very brief periods with no clear reason why. This is on a 5850, but I'm not even certain it's a video related issue.
