I'm interested in the 4 pack as well but like others I'm waiting for a more concrete release date and something possibly better than another copy of TL1.

edit: But then again it would only be $15... I mean, how much more do I want?

I'd be down for doing a 4 way split with people here.

I've done a 4 pack or two before with bluesnews people.

Dev, talk to Prez. I had intended for 1 to goto Prez but overbooked the 4-pack I bought. Lemme know if you need help finding 2 others. Pretty sure there are a few more on my friends list that would be interested.

Games will keep being sold after Diablo 3 gets released, Torchlight II will be fine. As others mentioned there isn't a lot of reason to preorder so many people probably aren't bothering.

Game doesn't even have a release date yet. And Diablo 3 is right around the corner. They should be thanking their lucky stars that they are even charting on the top sellers list.
We have a winner! Diablo 3 is a mere week away, in the same exact genre as Torchlight 2 (down to the simple game mechanics), Torchlight being on that list is nothing short of a miracle (and a lot of support for the underdog among fans) considering the competition it's facing.

Official site if you bought T2 there that gets you into the Neverwinter beta. But well beyond that, what is the big hurry to preorder a game with no ship date? It wasn't like is was on sale.
Where is that deal? I didn't see it on the TL2 site.

I honestly can't believe Torchlight II isn't #1. I guess people are buying it from elsewhere, or they haven't been watching the live beta stream ( http://www.twitch.tv/iitiamatii ) with the devs and know that it's an awesome DRM-less game made by the creators of diablo 2 with same original musician from diablo 2, and is moddable via the Runic editor(that comes with it) for many awesome mods to come, and much much more.

I will be buying T2, but without a free TF2 hat, there is no hurry.

Played the demo. Sniper V2 pretty much sucks. What kind of sniper game has you basically killing everything that moves in the entire map in order to win? That's just dumb.

Oh, and I'm in agreement that the pre-order incentive for TL2 sucks. I already have TL1. Why do I need another copy?

Personally I'm itching to play it but the pre-order bonus is pathetic (what I don't need is another copy of TL1 - I've already gifted it in the Steam sales to everyone I know who didn't buy it for themselves) and the vague release date, which reeks of "oh shit, Diablo3 is almost here" syndrome!

*ahem*ahem*

Excuse me, just a little cough.

You're bitching about a game not even out for another two months only being sixth? Not only that, but a (presumably) low budget game which is pretty low profile. I know nothing about it and I'm on Bluesnews every day.

I'd say it's doing very well getting onto this list. I might check it out!

Alternatively, the game isn't out yet and the preorder incentive is pretty lame.
What does it matter? It's going to be out in 2 months anyways. You might as well just pay early and help these guys out for doing an awesome job. What do you need an incentive for? ... Just buy it early, and you're helping these guys out. If 1) helping them out, or 2) getting TL1 for free, aren't good enough incentives for pre-ordering, then that's sad.

Split it with your 4 friends, $60 for 4 copies.

Pre-ordered TL2 but I think it's the vagueness of the release date being only "summer" and the fact that D3 is out sooner, action RPG overload.

It looks good though, enjoyed watching that stream.

But I already helped them out by buying TL1 at full price, so yes, it is a pretty shitty pre-order incentive.

If you can't understand why more people are spending money to get actual games instead of preorder promises, then the line between enthusiasm and rabid fanboyism was crossed a while ago.
