The first week of D3 I could only play late night...

every night I played the servers crashed or were being fixed

With TL2 beta, after playing 4 days, not a single server crash

but... it's not apples to apples

I don't think TL2 has 50 millions apes playing it like D3

Thought this was a pretty good gameplay review. Commentary is a bit dodgy, though.

I really liked T1 - forgot how I was turned to the game, but it was great fun. This T2 will be $20, so for that price its a "why not" pick up and play.

But lots of games coming out, so who knows. Oh for the days to be single and back in school with tons of free time!!!!

$20 now and at release.

If you pre-order you get Torchlight 1 free... to play in the meantime

Late summer release from what i've read

Played torchlight for the first time yesterday after preorder. It's like cartoony light hearted diablo. Really fun and addictive, actually. Look forward to playing it through in between D3 focus till 2 releases end of summer.

It is more lightweight for your computer too how did you feel the performance compared to D3?

Perfect performance with Torchlight. Last night in D3 had a couple of spots for slow down, but not much.

Diablo is a dark, story driven, linear, hack n slasher. And it is gunning to stay like that. Tells a story. The fan base loves it.

Torchlight is a toony, more open hack n slasher. And it is gunning to become a full blown MMORPG.

Games that have the potential to become my all time favorite MMORPG:

- Torchlight MMO
- Grim Dawn (I think it's going to be an mmo, can anyone very this?)
- Lineage Eternal (full blown MMORPG hack n slasher)

I love diablo, but I also love WoW. Torchlight MMO will be a hybrid between the two.

If you go to the torchlight 2 website, and sign up for the beta now, there is a chance you could get into the beta and play it before it ends tomorrow.

If I purchase it do I get in? I don't mind supporting this game for $20. I'm being all anti D3 atm.

You should be able to get in before it ends at least for a little bit, if you create an account today

Pre order. Out late summer. You get the original torchlight once you order.

Runic has been actively patching the heck out of TL2 over the extended beta weekend. I think about 8-10 patches?

Last night I found they had done a patch, to improve targeting issues among other things.

The targeting is now definitely better than what it was but still needs some tweaking.

I beat the BETA on Elite mode with one of my buds. It was very difficult, I think we each died about 5 times a piece on the final boss.

Grinding for unique gear is awesome. We were both playing Bezerkers playing him very differently.

The TL2 skill trees may not make the most sense initially, but you will need to take time to study them to figure them out.

Additionally, the skill trees, and your choices into them become much more critical on Veteran/Elite mode vs. normal mode.

On normal mode you can pick retarded specs and get away with it.

I have to admit

I am getting really burnt waiting on TL2, almost to the point of getting turned off to it

right now I am looking at playing:

Tera - F2P (with chronoscrolls)
GW2 - F2P
Diablo 3 - F2P
LoL - F2P (if I get back into it)

The room to play is very limited.

TL2 is moddable, can be played offline, and can be played over LAN. None of which I really care about.

TL2 progression is questionable since you can level in easy mode or elite mode. So what's the point of playing elite mode?

Runic needs to hurry up or im not going to bother at all. TL2 is just going to get lost in the shuffle of GW2 and MoP... end of summer release is turning out to be the worst thing ever for them

and path of exile is 100% F2P, and it's playable this weekend!

oh noes runic!

I agree with you Beef, I was hopeing TL2 would come out as a filler until GW2 came out. But with GW2 coming out in 4ish weeks, might just save my 20 bucks...

My wife and I both have our preorders ready and waiting. With all the games I bought during the steam summer sale, I say let them take their time.
