why is no one talking about one of the best games to come out this year?


for those who dont know, torchlight 2 (and 1) were made by runic games, which was formed by some of the guys from blizzard north. (diablo 1 and 2). as such, torchlight is the true spiritual successor to diablo 2, and not the piece of **** that is diablo 3.

sadly the server has been down, but theres nothing stopping you from playing single player or over a lan, or over lan through evolve or tuungle (doesnt work with hamachi apparently)



anyway, right now im rolling a tundra berserker, its like the lovechild of olaf and volibear. all that freezy storm lightning viking man.

Torchlight 1 was an awesome game. I really enjoyed it. I remember my Berserker on hardcore + very hard. Friend called on skype, and since skype is such a piece of ****, it brought me back to desktop while I was in a huge fight. In other words, I died. QQ.

Really looking forward Torchlight 2.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Because not everyone thinks it's the best game to come out this year. I played TL 1, it was enjoyable but I got bored.

From what I've seen of the game I simply prefer D3.

Also, if it wasn't for blizzard "south" Diablo would have been a turn based game. It was them who forced Blizzard North to change it into an hack and slash.

Torchlight 2 seems really good.
Definitely looks better than Diablo 3.

Torchlight 1 was good(probably about equal to D3), but had serious problems in the skill mechanics. It seems Torchlight 2 has solved most of those though.

I'm not a big sucker for these kinds of games though, so I'll just wait for the inevitable steam sale >:D

Been playing it pretty solid from release and my overall impression is that for 15 quid it's an absolute steal, it's pretty dam close to D3 in terms of how it plays, to me the one thing I missed in T2 is that there are loading screens where as D3 done a better job of just keeping the action flowing with its seamless design

Where it beats D3 for me though

- Price (duh)
- Pets (seriously why didn't D3 steal this from TL1?)
- Gear itemization
- Offline/Lan play
- Mods will ensure the game stays fresh
Thanks Xiaowiriamu for the awesome signature!

Wow...
This is one of the best trailers I've seen in a while. It easily crushes big budget trailers like the Assassin's Creed Rise trailer.
Mostly because of the music, but cmon, you can't tell me that this music isn't ******* awesome.
Btw, anybody know what it's called? I've heard it's not part of the soundtrack, but I've yet to check.

I don't find that trailer anything special. It's pretty much just footage of the game with some words in between. It's way too chaotic to even understand what's happening on the screen.

I don't watch many trailers, but this is definitely one of the worst. A good trailer would teach me something about the game, this doesn't really do anything besides flashing random 1 second clips.

I read reviews and watch videos about the games I wanna know stuff about. Trailers are unreliable as **** if you're looking for actual game footage or info.

I like trailers that wow me away, so this was just my kind of trailer.
I mean; look at Dead Island's trailer. Ask almost anyone and they'll tell you that it was great, because it was! Yet, it did not contain a single gameplay element nor really any other info than the setting.
