Well my Monk gets utterly destroyed on PTR now thanks to the STI debuff. GG Blizzard.

Unfortunately, Torchlight 2 is boring as fuck. I have zero idea what appeal anyone finds in that game.

Its just you, maybe your a boring person.

Finally, stick a fork in this shit and go away!!

And one of the big issues I have always had with this crap is the price tag on a subscription based game. Thereís no call for a game add-on to cost this much.

Not to hard to connect dots when there are not many to connect. It doesnít take a genius to figure this one out. Believe it or not, your choice, but my gut tells me these guys are using kickstarter money for all the wrong reasons. This is not the first time this has happened and is exactly why kickstarter came out with new regulations on this.

So InXile took Kickstarter money and used it to start a clothing line

Did I miss where it said that?


No you did, because it doesnít, but InXile is or was flat broke trying to make a game. Where did this magical money come from if not from Kickstarter? Your going to tell me that Brian Fargo just happen to have the money in his own account to fund this clothing line? Yea Right!!

So InXile took Kickstarter money and used it to start a clothing line. I donít believe this falls under their terms of Kickststarter and how that money was supposed to be used. They promised a product and now theyíre trying to profit off Kickstarter money by starting a clothing line.

This all somehow seems to fall outside the terms of what Kickstarter is for. Is this fraud to those who donated to them? And no one is going to sit here and tell me that InXile did not use any of the Kickstarter money to start this clothing line up.

EDIT: Also, this game badly needs a multiplayer co-op mode.

This is the one thing thatís keeping me from buying it right now. Iíve got so many other games right now to play that this one will get picked up at a much later date.

But Coop is defiantly needed.

Lucky you. I get "No subscription" when I try, even now

Edit: Restarted Steam and it now works. Downloading!

Exit out of steam and restart Steam that will fix the issue.

Great seeing two recent demos being offered. Very rare thing indeed.

Release Date: TBA 2013, eh I think I'll wait and see if THQ survives. Darksiders 2 undersold its sales targets by a hefty margin

COH 2 will under sell too; carrying a price tag of 60 dollars for a minimal game is more than Iím willing to spend. Especially when TL2 and BL2 are giving 60 plus hours return. Iíll pick this game up in a year when itís on sale.

Recently someone asked them about being able to identify all of the items in their inventory in one shot, and someone from Blizzard responded with "We're trying to figure out a way to do this."

Oblivious.

If they are going to go to that point then they might as well make the items as they drop off the boss already identified.

Anything they do now will be knee jerk Reactions to try and counter TL2

The RMAH has done nothing but inspire Gold farming Chinese to exploit the game to its fullest to try and make money. Too late for poor blizz. D3 is now a passing ship in the night.

News Comments > Steam EU Legal Conflict
15. Re: Steam EU Legal Conflict Sep 21, 2012, 12:49 Darks
 
This was something I was really upset about when they changed the legal agreement and FORCED us to agree to it just so we can get in and play our games. This is something that NEEDS to be changed.

My thoughts are this, yes you agree, and No I do not agree but I still get logged in to my games. Whether Valve or other developers likes that or not its needs to be this way. This is my legal right saying that No I do not agree with your strong arm tactics but you had better not lock me out until I do agree. I damn well paid for those games, and forcing us to agree is a measure of strong arming the users.

Utter crap anyway you look at it. I hope this finally gets fixed.

I have to say, I'm shocked at how good this game is. I was one of the people really down on the original Torchlight, it was a very average and bland experience that was easily won and done in a weekend. This is an improvement in every way possible. The overworld additions are well done and give it a real sense of scale. The randomization is well implemented and the game has a surprising amount of secrets and neat things to dig up. It has offline, online and LAN play! The skill trees aren't the boring shit we saw from the first game or in beta, they made them very compelling and there a huge number of build possibilities.

I can't believe this is $20 and Diablo 3 is $60. They have one upped it in every way except price. Kudos to Runic, I just hope their sales aren't impacted by GW2 and BL2.

I have to agree with you, I was happily surprised at how good the game is and fun. And I was even more surprised that you donít have to wade through each difficulty by beating the game just to get to the next difficulty level. That was awesome. Playing an engineer and really liking her hitting power. I did try the wizard and the Berserker; those were ok, but not as fun as the Engineer.

I bought the four packs on Steam, got the nice discount for it and gave my lan party friends theirs, I also bought one other copy because I wanted to get into the Neverwinter beta. I got both of those cd keys in an email Thursday. Canít wait to try out Neverwinter.

Everyone off the good ship TOR, because it's sinking fast!!

Creston


I will say, while playing BL2 last night, that I wish I could upgrade favorite weapons like I could in TOR.

That's like the only positive thing that pops into my head about TOR right now, but it is positive...


We might not be able to upgrade the weapons, but the new added tokens for achievements are just awesome and those do allow you to upgrade certain aspects of your weapons or your personal self. Love that they added this.

Does anyone know yet when this is going free to play? Iím pretty sure this is the first step consolidating users to going free. Iím just dreading that all of my chars now have some weird ass server name in front of all my charís now. Usually you will only get a chance to rename them after the move has taken place. Not months later which has always bothered me that they donít allow us to rename.

One small annoyance, all of the preorder bonuses are broken for the PC version. Anyways fantastic game so far.

I didnít see my pre order bonuses, but now I see why not. You actually have to go to a site to get them unlocked which Is stupid.

But, how are the bonuses broken? Can you let me know?

Iím also playing Axton, and enjoying him so far, but I really need to see the other classes to make a final decision.

Yeah, it's annoying how basically every class can deal with 3+ mobs without too many issues, but a Thief has to struggle down to their last pip of health to survive.

Thief gets really boned on condition heavy enemies especially but thankfully there are some support skills to alleviate that. I like the stealth design but feel like its missing something, can't quite put my finger on it.

Because I'm 100% right and work damn hard finding shit out instead of reading other people's posts and regurgitating it.

Riiiiight ok there fella Joker

Canít say I understand or agree with the Thief getting nerfed at all. I love playing the stealth classes, but the thief to me felt like I get my ass kicked way too much. Does not do enough damage and was constantly having to run from fights.

My Warrior on the other hand dishes out damage like its going out of style. I can usually take on three mobs easily and win. That you cannot do with the Thief.

If anything the thief should be getting more damage added.
