Torchlight Free on Epic Games Store

Torchlight is now available for free on the Epic Games Store as their latest promotional offering. This can be picked up gratis to keep for the next week, after which time Limbo will become the new freebie. Here's a refresher on this colorful action/RPG:

Legions of twisted creatures, emboldened by Ember, have begun to swarm up from the caves below the sleepy enclave of Torchlight. In this critically acclaimed Action-RPG, you’ll choose from three powerful heroes to adventure the depths for endless treasure and glory. Your adventure is unique, through randomly generated environments with new monsters, treasures, puzzles, and items each time.

PoE didn't do it for me. Somehow a combination of grim-dark, resource management and how the game is tilted towards the unforgiving-sphere rather the forgiving sphere turned me off of it. I never played more than 5 hours of PoE, but have 100+ in Torchlight 2. I found TL2 to be the closest to Diablo 2 in my tastes. Vanilla TL2 is good, TL2 + Synergies mod + Synergies Loot is prime Diablo 2 quality, any other mods on top of that is gravy.

You know what else is free? Path of Exiles
You know what is a better game in every regard?
Yeah, Path of Exiles.

Since they fixed melee even I like it... over Diablo 3.

From where? I want!

or
https://www.pathofexile.com/game

Like I can't believe you do not know this We've been talking about the pro and cons of this game for years now. Recently they fixed melee to do AoE damage to everything your swing affects.. and obviously this is a huge change, as before monsters could block your swings for those behind them.

Playing a marauder with shield and axe and liking it... already beyond 60
Uh, I have been under a rock and too BUSY with life. How long had it been free and why? Is it forever for now on?

Path of Exile(s) was always free, since, yes, 2013 But it wasn't always worth it to play it.. nowadays I think it definitely is, if you can get over the fact that you have a 10-15m map reset timer and a pretty steep learning curve to itemization.

Crafting plays a huge part in this game, and your best items are probably going to come from you using the various "crafting item" things on normal (non-rare etc.) stuff. Then rolling it till you like it, then you add what you want via crafting in your hideout. (You find these recipes by exploring the maps)

There are a ton of extra features nowadays. My advice, don't give 2 cent about perfect builds, look at where you start in the confusing skill-tree, then go some main stat, damage and resistance routes. Your only primary goal should be to kill stuff and to boost your elementary resistences to 75% (the limit) this makes the hugest of all differences as later, due to the plot, you actually get a -30% ! to all resistances.. anyhow. Just check it out when you find the time, it's free and won't run away

It seems more old games are going free. Heh. Since I don't play newer games these days since I don't play much these days, I'll just wait.

Torchlight was fun, but not good as the first two Diablo games.

The Torchlight games were pretty simple compared to many ARPGs but it always seemed like that was purposeful design rather than a flaw per say. The humorous animation and writing provided a cool atmosphere despite the technically simplistic surroundings. The modding community was fun and productive for time as well. If you haven't played it, free is a great price to take a fresh ARPG out for a spin. If you are looking for your next arpg "habit"...I very much doubt that the first or second Torchlight game will scratch that kind of itch unless you really dig modding.

You will still need every client installed and the apropriate client will still be launched to start a game purchased on a non-GoG store.

I'm in the minority for not liking PoE, but the level resetting after 10 minutes away is a deal breaker for me.

It's actually pretty useful when you want to find certain map events, but I can understand that
