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.

How about blizzard just give up some cheat codes and we can spawn decent loot. Boom, game fixed. Fuck your auction house.

No kidding dude,

Iím sick to death of how lousy the loot drops are in the game. You would think after killing Diablo on inferno mode with three other players that there would be some good drops. But when you see a level 58 item drop or even when a level 63 items does drop and you id it and its got shit stats on it. Thatís where the frustration sets in and you just say fuck this game. This is where Blizzard is failing their users and why people are at the point of no return and saying fuck you Blizzard, we have had enough.

The lack of good loot and epic items dropping has killed this game for many. Blizz just keeps screwing with the game but they are fixing all the wrong things. They are blinded by their own obsession and completely fail to listen to the users.

Anyone have some hands on time with this game?

I havenít had any, but from all of the videos Iíve seen so far. It looks good, but on the other hand I have also noticed a lot of consolish crap in the game to. Like the left side of the screen where your skills are. Looks all too similar to the way Dungeon Siege 3 has theirs. Plus this game was designed for the console first and then ported over. So that makes me really leery of this game. I hated how DS3 was and the usage of skills and the lack of potions in the game.

I was pretty excited about this game, but the more I read up on it and the more videos I watch. Its just makes me wonder.

About the Coop too. Three char classes, but only two players coop. That bothers me, and Iíve got this suspicious feeling that coop is going to be both players on one screen. The hell with that garbage, At this point, Iím more interested in Torch Light 2. To me, RAW is going to end up a failure.

Greece is governed by jackasses. Surely the devs weren't trespassing inside the base itself? They must have been standing on the road outside of a perimeter fence or something, and so what's the point of cordoning off your military installation at that distance if you're so insecure about people seeing it from the outside? As if they had something to hide... You never hear about the Greek Army's prowess.

Yea....well...you know what they said about the Spanish Inquisition!

First off this just shows how idiotic the govt of Greece really is. Secondly, letís get serious for a min; no one needs to run around with a Camcorder to get photos when a Satellite can do the job more efficiently and better. Plus were talking about Greece, really what military do they really have that matters in the world.

THANK GOD. Glad to see they're working on getting discovery to work the same way.

No, this is still stupid. You still have to put those items in the bank tab from the resourse tab. So whatís the fricking difference if you still have to move them from one section to the other? NONE!!! Itís still a task to do it. Lame!!!
