    Some people called Titan Quest "diablo3".
    People still play diablo2, but no one remembers Titan Quest.

    I figured this thread would be about Torchlight 2.

    Also, D3 will be Blizz's grand experiment with a Real Money AH, so a lot of people will be at least watching to see how that plays-out, even if they aren't actually playing the game.
    I take some solace in the fact that even though my snarky reply to someone's condescending rhetorical question earned me a 1-week ban, my post was not deleted. I was rather proud of that bit of snark, and I am glad it lives on.

    Something kills something when both aren't even out

    Sigh..yeah...Diablo 2 was called outdated and all, still neither Titan Quest, nor Sacred could scratch it.

    So, in short: the internet.

    To everyone using the term "clone" Shame on you for not using your brains to come up with a way to describe something that isn't a cliché. You describe things by their contents and their character, you don't parrot over used phrases and mindlessly hit submit as if its something clever / new.

    Lineage 3 looks like it very well could beat Diablo at its own game, I really love the draw your ability idea they had with this game and the mini cut scenes look amazing, I just hope they add in some more classes then I foresee this game really going places.

    It's just a resource mechanic, "arrows" is your resource bar and you click a button to restore the bar while you can't fight for 3 seconds it looked like.

    People at www.titanquest.net would disagree with you. How can you even compare these games, TQ has so much more diversity in character builds compared to Diablo2, so much more gear flexibility, it's a new level of action-RPGs.

    Btw, I'm eagerly waiting for Grimdawn, upcoming game from TQ developers. http://www.grimdawn.com/
    And the biggest difference between TQ and Diablo - developers of TQ really have passion for the game.


    On topic - looks really good. Lineage 2 had both good and bad things, bots and "buffed archer parties" were some of the worst. Let's just hope that individual melee player (unbuffed) won't be useless.

    You are wrong. The ratio is roughly 3:5:2 US/EU/Asia.

    Wow, still trying to figure out what you wanted to archieve with your reply.

    the reason why they decided to make a sequel to L1 and not L2 is because NCSoft is already publishing huge MMOs in the next year of the traditional MMORPG sense, one which is Blade and Soul (which also looks amazing) and Guild wars 2.. having a Lineage 2 sequel will kind of be too much.. kind of like how Blizzard decided to eliminate two RTS and just have their main RTS their main MMO and their main Dungeon Crawler

    and done judge how easy the game is from an alpha preview, come on.. their mission is to show skills and levels, etc.. now difficulty. Its like if I come here and complain about how easy the Diablo 3 beta is, I mean the Diablo 3 beta I can pretty much pretend to be a medieval Rambo so just leeroy the entire skeleton king quest line and succeed. of course thats not how the game is going to be

    Doubt it, NCSoft has enought resources to develope 3 MMOs at the same time - see B&S/Aion/first L3 project were in development together. Besides this, they still had 4 other MMOs running and L1 running, while publishing GW, etc

    anything that blizzard make can ncsoft put in a Chinisification-machine (see wut i did thur?) and yeah

    I think that most people saying it's a clone and inferior to Diablo 3 by default haven't watched past 3 minutes of the video.

    Did you see all the mechanics they've put in? Those are actually very interesting. You actually give direction and shape to many of your moves as a warrior for example (drag your mouse forward in a line - you charge, drag it in a circle - you do a whirlwind attack), you can use in-game objects to fight enemies (the character was throwing vases and stones and monsters).

    A lot of what's happening is also very interactive: the warrior takes a huge brazier, throws into a tent and mobs start running out of there caught on fire, dying one by one.

    The physics look very good too.

    While I would never call it a "diablo 3 killer" (because the "killer" term in itself is retarded and has a huge sitgma on it), but I wouldn't disregard it in the "LOLOLOL D3 CLONE FAILZ" manner as many people seem to do here.

    Actually spend some time watching the video before turning on auto-hate mode. It's a lot more engaging past the 3 or so minute mark, and if you allow yourself to be open minded you might actually see something interesting.

    I always thought the the point of gaming was to try as much interesting stuff as you could, and the modern Blizzard-grown gamer generation seems hellbent on limiting themselves.

    P.S. Just to clarify - I'm not an NCSoft fan. I hated Linage 2. I've played WoW for almost 5 years and played Blizzard games since WC2's release.

    - Looks like they took him to some bolt hole in the Wounded Coast.
    - I wonder if it's near the Injured Cliffs? Or the Limping Hills? Massive-Head-Trauma-Bay? No? Just me? *sigh* Forget I said anything.

    i guess I shouldnt have used that title, even though I said it was a joke sarcastic title and never said anything bad about Diablo 3, people still just read that and take it was a hate thread lol. The only reason I posted this here is because a bunch of my friends used to be old L2 players but we also loved D1 and D2 and cant wait for D3.. hell when we went to Blizzcon 2010 we probably spent 70% of our time playing the Diablo 3 demo, but when we saw this game we thought it was pretty cool. In the end I just wanted to share it with other fans that might be interested in a game like this style.

    Aion has the 2nd most subscriptions of the games that compete with WoW (WoW>Aion>Rift last I checked).
