[Official] Torchlight 2 Thread

Got into the beta for this weekend.

Will try to post screenshots as soon as possible!

Very fast paced compared to Torchlight 1, and the open areas are awesome!

Some outdoor shots too with my berzerker!

Note the natural elevation differences of the outside areas!

TL1 was a pretty fun little game. My wife loved it because she could play the whole game with just her mouse on her laptop.

Is TL2 still playable with just a mouse?

You have too many abilities to just play with a mouse.

been using 1-9, F1, F2, LMB, RMB

much more variety in what your toon can do

Torchlight 2 is toony, D3 is dark

The graphics are great, the screenshots don't do it justice

and yes the graphics for D3 are blah, and washed out compared to this

D3 is flat

TL2 actually has hills, and a real outdoor environment

It's not so god awful linear like D3

Also got into beta, this would have been great last year or early this. Now with D3, it'll be on the backburner for a while.

I'll probably pick up TL2 because of the price.

Wait, wrong thread.

Or is it?

I can't tell.

My point. Why would I pay more for the same thing.

This game will get murdered by D3 fans.

That being said, I really enjoyed TL1 and will buy TL2 when it comes out.

I agree with Drew, TL1 was to keep the diablo feel going it was easy to get into, offline mode etc. I will buy TL2 to check it out when it comes.

Really, there are only two things they need to do with TL2:

1) Fix the skill trees so that you can't completely screw a build up.
2) Make it MP.

I think they are fixing both things for the second release. Need to find a source though.

Nah, we're not haters.

They are similar, but there is a difference. I have Torchlight 1, and may get Torchlight 2. As others have said Tourchlight is more cartoony and Diablo is dark. Torchlight is light. Diablo has a more indepth story.

The reason they look very similar is that some of the Torchlight guys used to be Blizzard. In the end they are both ways to spend your time, pick the one that works for you.

Both games are very good.

I just happen to like Torchlight a bit better.

Played the beta all weekend, and it's execellent.

You don't get the real feel for the game until you turn up the difficulty to veteran/elite.

This game is a perfect stepping stone for Runic to come out with the Torchlight MMO.

It is already starting to feel like an mmo... just excellent.

the outdoor areas are huge, and fun to explore just like an mmo

Diablo 3 and Torchlight 2 are VERY different games. You can play both without hating on the other.

Torchlight 2 is more open... like an mmo

Diablo 3 is more story driven... like Diablo 2

very different feels

enjoy both, and stop hating on one or the other like me

Torchlight 2 is like a hybrid between World of Warcraft and Diablo... toony but Diabloesque

Two things I like so far:
1) multi-player
2) new pet cat (old was was blah)

Two things I don't like:
1) cartoonish graphics
2) faster pace

I already pre-ordered it and gave away my TL1 copy to a friend. Hopefully, I won't be disappointed this summer.

Honestly, I enjoyed TL1. But that was because D3 wasnt out, and I only played TL1 for about 2 weeks before I got super bored.

I actually do like the toony graphics, reminds me of WoW.

I agree with your comments about the faster pace. And many many others have said the same thing.

I recommended in the forums for the beta that movement speed should be reduced 5-15%.

And that people can gear with speed boost items if they really want to run that fast.

At this point, you run so fast that you can kite in circles most bosses

TL1 is very limited scope.

TL2 was multi player and is a much larger game, about 5x larger with large outdoor areas.

This is all leading to the ultimate goal, a Torchlight MMO with a massive open persistent world. with mounts! they already said the mmo will have mounts!

will be awesome!

I'm not sure if anyone else playing the beta has noticed the following as well:

When you enter dungeons, the perspective rotates a little bit so you always go at dungeons from a little bit different angle. It's pretty cool, that you are always tackling dungeons from a different perspective.

I'm not talking about zooming in or out

Diablo 3 has one more thing TL2 doesn't, support for Macs.
