    Yeah because Skyrim is bad right that's why people mod it? Modding is the one best thing with PC games, all developers should try to endorse it if they have the time and funds to as it enhances the lifespan of the game which in turn can generate more sales, Morrowind is still selling for example.

    On Torchlight 2, I hope it will be a good game, but I will most likely not buy it, not for a long time anyway. I'm not into dungeoncrawlers where I can push the left-key and go through the entire game that way (Aura-Paladin in D2 says hello) because it isn't enjoyable.

    That's an incredibly dense thing to say. Is Skyrim a bad game because it allows mods? Is WoW a bad game because it allows addons? Is Portal 2 a bad game because it has an editor?

    What makes you think that mods in Torchlight 2 are designed to keep the game alive and not just make it last longer? Based on those available for the first game, some will be tweaks (same as Skyrim; changing some stat values, abilities, graphics mods, just optional tweaks that some users might prefer) while some will introduce entirely new classes and other content. You cannot say that is a bad thing.

    Edit: Actually, going through your post history it's clear you just like trolling about Torchlight.
    Yup, creativity at its finest. Some people are simpletons and can't understand such concepts, poor things.



    To everyone in the Beta, keep testing and leaving properly organized and constructing feedback in the forum when you can. The devs watch the forum closely and good feedback can make a difference.

    Not sure where you get this impression, there's many difficulty options in the game, like all ARPGs. From casual all the way to NG+ Elite Hardcore mode.

    I'm buying Diablo 3 on release, but I've got 3 friends lined up to do a 4 pack purchase from Steam. That'll bring the price to $15 for each of us. I don't think it'll be better than Diablo 3, but we'll see.

    I like the artstyle of Diablo 3 more than Torchlight 2, but I'll give it a shot. But from what I've seen I won't really play it long term. :P

    Played Diablo 2 as a Paladin and found that only speccing into Auras and spamming pots could save me from every situation (on normal and then again on hard at least), so I restarted a barb after I reached the jungle lands on the paladin, and it was the same thing but instead I used two mouse-buttons. Nah I'm just bored by ARPGs, they don't tickle my fancy even if I enjoyed the story.

    I very much liked the style of the game when playing the Torchlight 2 beta. And the music score is just the best. The modding for me is a plus simply because it's fun to mod and be creative and take part of others creativity. And at only $20 it's a nobrainer and probably one of this years most bang-4-your-bucks game.

    20 bucks for a game with more features and functionality than the 60 dollar title currently being sold. No brainer indeed. Made an account at the runic website hopefully 'll get a beta invite. How much you wanna bet it wont have server issues on day one? It's really a shame though because it's shaping up to be massively superior to diablo 3 but it doesn't have the name recognition to carry it. Spread the word I guess, that's what I've been doing.

    So Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, Unreal, The Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3/NV, Diablo 2, War/StarCraft, and thousands of other games have all required modding to keep them alive? Interesting. I never knew this.

    For what it is worth. Total Biscuit had a 40min preview of the latest beta.




    Looks fantastic! Fast, colorful and smart.

    Saw that today. It's quite intriguing, mostly in the combat, which TB obviously had a lot of praise for. Not a fan of that old-school talent tree or some of the other things, but the pets, combat and art really have me interested.

    Oh, missed that. Gonna go watch it now!

    Yea, one thing that struck me was TB saying, "This game is great. Flat out, great."

    Not something I hear TB in particular say about too many games he previews. Right before that he commented that he was happy playing the game, "I'm grinning while I play this..." Also a great tipoff to me when I hear any commentator say that such as MikeB or Day9.

    The doldrums of playing games for a living often sucks the fun out of things. When a game expresses joy in you enough to comment on it as such, I think that is worth noting.

    TL2 climbed back up to Steam's top sellers chart.

    It was 4th yesterday, now 3rd, up from a stable 8th to 12th.

    It's doing very well already, and that's not counting the pre-orders from other platforms.

    I was thinking the same thing. TB plays a lot of Tribes, but I've never heard him Tribes is by no means 'a great game' or 'awesome game', he just tries to minimize his critics to 'a good game' or 'a very good game'. And he's very aware of this detail when reviewing games.

    Teebee is on the fence between a good & a bad game when it comes to Tribes, I believe one of the reasons are the huge amount of "grinding" you need to do if you want to play the game completely Free to Play.

    It's sad. Tl2 looks like it's shaping up to be one of the best games of the year but since it lacks the name recognition of that other game it probably won't take off as much. What a shame.

    Branding and marketability. I'll try and get my friends to play it. All you can do is spread the word right?
