It's a surprise that Chrome keeps giving you that error, I've been using it for a couple of years now and I've never seen that. Considering I still haven't broken myself of the habit of closing the browser instead of just minimizing it, you'd think I'd have seen it at least once by now.

I'd hoped this would be a decent CPU, but it doesn't look that way. At this point I'm just going to stretch my i7 920 and 5850 into next march, when Ivy Bridge and nVidia's Kepler should be about ready to hit.

As has been said, don't even bother playing TQ without the fan patch. It's a pure community bug-fix patch, which is necessary to make a number of skills work correctly.

Also, Dream+anything is pretty much a win.


I've enjoyed TQ and Torchlight and put a ton of time into each. While TQ is certainly more fleshed-out, I prefer the pacing and combat of Torchlight. I'd have to give the win, narrowly, to Torchlight.

Looks like they are actively going into bug hunting mode on psychonauts, I'm impressed.

I doubt it would happen, but I'd buy DLC for that game if they made some.

I picked this up on a sale awhile ago based on the word of mouth I'd heard. I think now is a good time to give it a play through while I wait for BF3, Torchlight 2 and Skyrim.

It's this or Orcs Must Die, though it's hard to choose without a demo for Dungeon Defenders.

If you have Android it's free on the marketplace and you can check it out to see if you like it. The PC version will be different no doubt but it's better than nothing.

Alternatively, they have an old, proof of concept type prototype demo which you can try out - http://www.udk.com/showcase-dungeon-defense

That's good to know. I may make the attempt, though it'll probably just make my Droid cry. Google really needs to release the Nexus Prime before my phone quits altogether...

So many issues and bugs that it blows my mind that it was released to public for testing.

That statement just makes my head hurt. This was put out as a BETA, not a Demo. As such, you can and should expect bugs, glitches, and general wonkiness galore. I think companies should get in the habit of leaving several glaring bugs or incomplete portions of their game alone, during a beta test, just to help remind people of the actual purpose of the beta test. You put them up on a known and fixed list, and move along.

Thank god they've fixed the blue screen bug, that one drove me nuts.

I can't wait for BF3, I haven't had a good multiplayer fix in ages.

That's ok, my first thought was a dinosaur, and I reread it several times, scratching my head...

That was mine as well. I'd actually pictured a velociraptor perched in a tree before things finally fell into place. I should probably start drinking coffee in the morning...

That article was such a clear piece of garbage that I didn't even bother reading it, and normally I'll at least give them a look for entertainment purposes. Instead I fired up a video game, and rather than waste time responding directly to that article, I'm going to do so again.

Isn't each fortress actually made up of several levels? I got the impression that the demo was part of the first fortress and had a few levels from the start.

I don't think each individual level is a separate fort. Could be wrong, though.

Ah, if that's the case it's an instant purchase. Now I need to go find out.

If you find out...let me know! I'm really liking the looks of this game. Still enjoying Sanctum right now, in fact.

Everything I've read leads me to believe that each fortress is a level, leaving you with 24 throughout the campaign. Unfortunately I can't find anything solid to back that with, I'm just making that assumption based on the way a number of previews read. I thought I'd found the answer at one point, only to realize I had Googled my way back to this thread.

How long did the 3 from the demo take you to get through?

I was probably in the game for a total of 30 minutes, and some of that was spent messing around with settings and getting my bearings. My best guess is that I spent 20 minutes or so actually playing.

I'm sure the game has replay value, with an unlockable difficulty and upgrades for the traps, but I'm not sure the length justifies $15. I may wait for a sale to push it under $10 before I buy.

Yup, the demo is a lot of fun. My only question at this point is around the length of the game. I'm going to have to do a little research to see if it's been mentioned anywhere.

Beware of V-Sync. I turn it on out of habit, and it added some input lag for me. Everything was fine once I switched it off, and I didn't see any noticeable tearing during gameplay.

Dead Island, The Witcher 2 and Deus Ex are all high on my to-buy list, but I've already got the rest of the year booked with Battlefield 3, Skyrim and *crosses fingers* Torchlight 2. I also continue to buy indie titles which lays claim to the rest of my free moments. I just grabbed The Binding of Isaac, which is a good game wrapped in a really disturbing theme.

...but I'm seeing more and more discontent here about they crap that goes on due to lax moderation, so I'm going to tighten things up a bit out of respect for those of you who don't need to be policed to act like adults, and that will be the first step.

This is a welcome step. I've taken to avoiding the comments lately for that very reason. It's sad to say, but when someone said "Welcome to Blue's News" regarding this thread, I couldn't help but agree. While some moderation will help, I think we all need to make an effort to improve the discussion around here. I'd hate to have people start abandoning the site simply because we can't control ourselves.

Regarding Rage, what are the thoughts on the game? It's iDs first direct production in awhile, and while I'd love to have it on day one I haven't yet purchased it. I'm still smarting from the mistake that was Brink; a Bethesda published game with a $60 price tag makes me wary now.

As for Carmack getting out, I think it's great. I'd be in line if I was anywhere near the area. It'd be better for us PC gamers if he did it at a different store, but brick & mortar PC game stores just don't exist anymore.

I want to be excited for this, but every time I see the game in action I can't help but think 'meh'.

I think they would have been better off doing another KotOR or something similar, but that's just me. I'll wait to see what people think of ToR before I decide.

I'd actually planned on grabbing this over Torchlight 2, and then picking up TL2 later on. It looks like they'll be spaced out enough where I can get both now--provided Torchlight 2 doesn't slip.

Still, I'm terrified of what will happen during the winter Steam sale. My wishlist is going to get a LOT longer before the end of the year...

I don't want hints or teases I want solid confirmation that EP3 or HL3 is on the way, dammit!

I don't want to hear about it until the gone gold announcement. Knowing Valve Time like we all do, an announcement that comes any sooner will leave us all waiting for several years.
