Protip: Be cautious about something you're deciding to make a hobby, because it could suddenly stab you in the back; when it's too late; because you already paid, or you already spent more time than you wanted to.

Am I going to enjoy a game that has a childish atmosphere to it? Childish cinematics, childish voice acting, and childish stories/quests? Probably not.

Someone is going to have to do convince me. Tell me I'm wrong. Someone who's played the beta.

You sound like a rational person with reasonable opinions.

Personally, I prefer a lot of the design changes Blizzard has put into Diablo 3, not the least of which is the revamped skill system. I'll no doubt pick up TL2, but it'll probably be after I've sunk a few hundred hours into D3.

Then again, I may pre-order just to support Runic, and then I could try to get a friend hooked on the genre by gifting TL. Hmm. Decisions, decisions...
haha I just preordered for these exact reasons. Also I feel sorry for Runic not finishing the game in time for release 1 month ago or so.. They would've raked in cash from starved Diablo fans. I still don't think they'll do badly, but not as well as if they'd released before D3.

I enjoyed the first one enough for the $5 I spent for it. One thing I hope is better this time is the skill system. It was fairly boring and anemic. Hopefully it's more fleshed out with lots of interesting builds. That's one thing I'm LOVING in Diablo 3, the insane amount of viable builds to play around with.

I enjoyed the first one, but for $5.00, at a time when I was itching for a loot dropping dungeon crawler. If I'm bored with D3 by then, I wont hesitate to pick up, but no need to pre-order.

Pre-ordered. This is one of the rare games I will pre-order without any hesitation.

We may need to take a vote on that!

The page lists steam cloud and steam achievements, so if gog sold it, it would be keys only.

Wondering if this will be for sale on GOG as well, though Steam is a better setup for Coop.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

I would think they'd hope you'd give that copy to someone who didn't have the original. And if the friend liked it, they'll buy a copy of TL2.

It's an easy way to get people hooked that might not be familiar with the series yet.

I won't likely pre-order it, unless it's in the last few days, but it made me wonder... Why would you pre-order Torchlight 2 if you didn't thoroughly enjoy #1... Thereby making the copy of the first useless (minus the whole steam gifting part)...

And then I remembered the letter r... Or more accurately... Arrrrr... Pirates ; )

This is a great example of how piracy generates revenue; many many people who pirate a product will buy a sequel. Which incidentally, is also why Windows is THE operating system of choice : )
