I'll most likely be too busy playing Diablo III

It will probably be a pretty good game though.

If they had released this like 2 months ago I would have bought it to pass the time until D3, but now it's just too late. I might grab it when it's on a Steam Xmas sale for 5.

I think it's a shame there was no gamepad support on the first or second of this game.

The controls are so simplistic I think it easily could have been done.

You wait for one action rpg then 4 or 5 of them come along at once.
My mouse clicking finger is already starting to ache at the thought of playing through all of these.

They also made the original torchlight game and that was fairly shallow. Biggest problem here is timing. It's coming out 2 months or so after d3. Not good. I'll still buy but not until q4.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but diablo 1/2 were also extremely shallow; such is the nature of isometric action RPGS.

Typical gameplay

Step 1:

*left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click**right click**right click**right click**right click**right click**right click**left click**left click**left click**left click**left click*

Step 2
*Talk to merchant/quest marked NPC, skip all the text, sell items/go to location marked on map

Step 3
Repeat step 1

/

Torchlight was as diverse as Diablo 2, maybe moreso with an out of the box world editor.

Probably, as it's one of the games I've anticipated for long.
But I'm afraid it'd be overshadowed by...Shadowrun Returns. *cue lame pun*

For a game with random dungeons, a 'bazillion of drops' (credit goes to Gearbox), an included editor, and a modding community, it's about as 'shallow' as any Diablo-esque games.
For a $15 game with Steam cloud and SteamPlay, that chump change (relative to what most AAA titles cost these days) certainly bought me a lot.

Story?
Yeah...even in D3 beta no one actually cared about story after the first run to the finish (of the playable chapter) and just blast along on consecutive runs.
Ask any D2 vets whether they remember characters more than character classes and skills.

But hey, don't take anything too seriously from someone who also likes Dungeons of Dredmor; might be very biased.

Diablo 1/2, Torchlight are hack&slash games...with minor RPG elements.

But, Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 were themed to be around with a bit of grit. Torchlight 1/2 looks very cartonistic to take it serious.

They were definitely themed differently, but that doesn't mean that Torchlight sucked. It was a great game, it just wasn't dark.

The original doesn't have multiplayer, does it? I like arpgs with multiplayer. Single player just gets boring quick. I will actually give the original another go tonight.

Have to mirror what others have said, i've already pre-orded Diablo 3 and seeing as it's out 1st i'll be holding off until Torchlight 2 hits a steam sale.

If it had of came out before Diablo 3 i would have bought it now as it's a great price (more so compaired to blizzards crazy digital price), but it's just not coming out at the right time IMO.

Just pre ordered of Steam and got Torchlight 1 free.
Not a bad little action rpg once you get over the quirky cartoony graphics.

I will be doing the opposite of most of the forum so far, I will got Torchlight 2 already, then I will wait till Diablo 3 comes down from 60 bucks. I do not pay full price for games at launch. Only have 3 times and Diablo 3 is not one of the games I would pay full launch price for.

I've already pre-ordered it looking forward to this far more than Diablo 3 I found the beta average at best i'm sick to death with this streamlined crap that and the always online connection required is a complete deal breaker for me
