I got maybe 30 hours from Torchlight. I've gotten 300+ hours with TQ (thanks to mods, too). I liked Torchlight, but I definitely like TQ more. It has a lot more depth, both in character building and loot stats. Don't forget to install the Fan Patch. Also, if you like mods, Underlord is the best one IMO (it includes the Fan Patch). Titanquest.net is the most popular forum of TQ and it's still pretty active.

I really enjoyed the demo, would really like to get it. Willing to trade an unused Duke Nukem DLC key and a TF2 hat for it! lol

It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you make a shitty port of a mediocre game for PC, yeah, it's not going to sell that well. Especially if you get the reputation of doing this in general. There are still some companies that make PC games and make a lot of PROFIT off of PC gamers.

When does this go F2P? I played some of the beta and enjoyed it for a bit, but didn't think it justified a sub.

A fun change of pace from Summoner's Rift. I only started playing LoL about a month ago but I'm enjoying myself. It's definitely F2P done right. Just played a game of Dominion that was decided at the last second (score was 4 to 0, both teams start at 500). It's much more fast-paced and hectic than the normal map, and lots of new strategies involved.

I only downloaded Origin so I could play the BF3 alpha. I'm sure once BF3 hits open beta, their "Origin numbers" are going to get pretty high, but it's not really significant if they're only using Origin to play a beta.

I will also probably end up giving this a spin again. I played it on release for a while, and then went back to it every now and then during a game lull. It's actually a pretty fun game with a good combat system.

I wonder how many preorders it would be if it was being sold on Steam already. I'm guessing 2+ million. EA hopes it's going to pay off in the long run, because it certainly isn't going to pay off in the short run.

I'll take an Asheron's Call 3. More like the 1st than the 2nd. And I know it has nothing to do with Garriot.

With all the praise this game is getting, I'm really looking forward to playing it. I don't think I can remember the last time a game got universal positive reviews from actual players. Plan on getting it on Steam when I can afford it (damn bills!).

I must say, their one trailer (I think it's on Steam, and other places of course) where everything goes backwards in slow motions is an awesome trailer. It's to the same music. It was very "artistic."

Game is a day one pickup for me, and I am certainly surprised they didn't put a $29.99 price-tag on this one, they could have gotten away with it easily. The game is substantially bigger than the first one.

Question for people:

Will you still be singing Runic's praises when Torchlight 3, the subscription based (or possibly F2P micro-transaction) MMO, comes out?

Over the years here at Bluesnews, I've seen people praise a company one day and then do complete 180's when that company takes one of their franchises down the MMO route. Words like "greed" and "sell-out" take over those threads.


Well, it's a bit different for Runic, as they have said FROM THE VERY BEGINNING that they were planning on making an action MMO. Plus I don't think the gameplay would deviate that much from Torchlight now (at least not toward the grindy traditional MMO sense). Also, their track record thus far gives them more leeway before people start getting their pitchforks.

Well, looks like I'll be skipping this POS. Thanks Gabe, you douchebag.

Why would this make you skip it? Even if it's implemented, there's still going to be custom servers/modding. I'm pretty sure PC players and consoles players would segment themselves anyway, by themselves. Console players won't WANT to play with PC players once they realize they're going to get beaten all the time. And PC players will want to play with other PC players on servers they know.

I mean, if the there are other things you don't like about the game, that's fine (I'm not really sure if I'm that into it either), but to skip it just because of this reason is silly. You will not be forced to play with console players if you don't want to. The experience will be able to be skipped entirely.
