The guys that made Torchlight made the classic Diablo and Diablo 2. It sort of dampens my optimism for the quality of Diablo 3, now since it's made by a different team.

Posted by mrburger

My roommate and I were totally psyched for Torchlight 2.  But it only just now dawned on us that it won't be on XBLA until, well, ... probably a good long while after it's PC/Mac release.

Of course it will..  But Torchlight has a pretty devoted cult following, even releasing close to Diablo 3, I don't think it has much to worry about.  Plus that's assuming Diablo 3 will be out anytime before 2015.

Not too bummed since I am just now going through Torchlight on Steam.

So'k Magicka run through's until then i guess, damn that game is two whole bags of awesome. Still does anyone know if Diablo 2 works on windows 7? I do miss looting.

This seems neat, i really need to go back and play some more torchlight, never finished it, but i am really curious to see how this plays on a console.

I dunno, even with the delay that'll still give Torchlight II a couple of years to gather sales.

When a game involves nothing more than clicking the mouse button and mashing keys to use potions, how exactly do you "dumb it down"?
They could do something like less active skills because there are only so many free buttons on a gamepad even though a keyboard has more than enough hotkeys.

There are few things more delicious than the tears of whiny PC-only gamers. If I have to wait a little longer for Torchlight 2, that's alright.

Delay box indeed.

Man I love it when shit like this happens, the PC crowd goes bananas.

Where's my Torchlight MMO?

Maybe change the news title to "PC Elitists get another stick to put up their collective rectums"

I'm one of these PC players that puts the PC on a pedastal, mostly due to the fact that it is, you know, better. 
 
Seeing people complain here is just moronic. As a PC gamer I hate having certain franchises "dumbed down" to be multi-platform. eg Battlefield.
 
This game was already built for the PC and is now being ported for consoles?! What the hells wrong with that? More people get to play a great game. Plus their a small studio that had a hit, they deserve to get paid.

Posted by solidamus90

Oh man, and I was kinda psyched for getting to play it quite soonish, I loved the first one.

Posted by djaoni

Sad to see it delayed, but The Witcher 2 comes out in May so I wouldn't have played it until at the earliest July anyway.

For obvious reasons there just aren't as many 12 year olds playing on the PC. Logic fail.

My computer blows so I never care to play games on it verses my 360. So I'm looking forward to the xbla release so I can finally give Torchlight a go.

Posted by Vafthrutnir

As much as I want this it isn't really high on my list of games to get. Will probably get it during a Steam sale ('11 holiday, $10?).

@freshym: Just because you can run it on a netbook doesn't mean anyone in their right mind would want to play it on one. Even playing it on a laptop without a USB mouse isn't pleasant.  
 
I bought the game on Steam but don't find the interface satisfying. If it controlled more like the console versions of Baldur's Gate (which I'm lead to assume the XBLA version does) I might have a better time with it.

Can't say my opinion is as strong, but I agree.
Posted by zus

did runic ever say if they will include the console controls in torchlight II, or change the way the game will be controlled because of the port?

100% behind you on this.

Posted by Aleryn

Huh.  Well, good on them for having put in the time to try selling Torchlight and Diablo genre in general, to the console masses.

Agreed. 
Posted by radioactivez0r

As long as it comes out before D3, it will get plenty of sales I think.  Waiting too long will just doom it.

Sign me up for those who are ok with the delay. I like to imagine that the extra time will go into even more polish. Loved the first, can't wait for the next.

Posted by sixpin
@Binman88 There are more negative comments than what you mention. My comment was generalized so as not to single out any individual. Next time I'll be more succinct: The idea that the sequel was delayed to boost the sales of the port is ridiculous.
Posted by niamahai

Its not like the entire month of May-July there is only Torchlight 2 to play. Geez.

Posted by TomA

AHHHH!!!! I knew this would fucking happen. Godammit, why bother releasing Torchlight on consoles anyway? 90% of the market for that type of game is on the PC anyway, so the argument" the console version will really help fund Torchlight 2" is mostly invalid. And also, whenever a company says something like "Ya the console version really gives us alot of insight and ideas about what we can do to help better the PC version," it usually means that they take the dumbed down aspects of the inferior console ports and put in on PC.

Comments like this are why people think PC gamers are scumbags.

Pretty much this.
Posted by Binman88
Yeah, I read this on RPS earlier. Not really looking forward to the game too much to be honest, as I've yet to even play more than two minutes of the first one, but I'm interested to see how it turns out.

" Don't know if it is because of Torchlight's PC roots, but both articles on here have been full of whining and asinine conspiracy theories. "
I don't see anyone whining in this article's comments. I see 4 comments from people assuming people are going to whine (5 including yours), but I see no whining. 
 
Looking at the other article, I see one guy make a negative comment (the first comment on the article), and someone else says something along the lines of "I'd prefer them to spend that time making Torchlight 2 on the PC", which isn't really a negative comment, just the opinion of that poster's preference. The rest (ie. the majority) of the comments are positive. But, the same thing happens there, someone posts saying "why is everyone complaining!!!!?" when clearly everyone isn't. 
 
I think I know who needs to chill out!
Posted by 2HeadedNinja

if they can make more money out of the game, all power to them ... and, lets be honest, there is not much to "dumb down" in a game like torchlight.

oh god the 360 version runs at 720?  It hadn't dawned on me that it wouldn't be 1080.  Uugh.  No thanks.

Curse you, XBLA, curse you!!! ^^

Edited by PenguinDust

I don't like it but at the same time, I've got such a backlog it will be sometime before I get around to it anyway.  On the other hand, if Blizzard announces the release window for Diablo III before I get Torchlight II, I fairly certain I won't ever pick it up.  

Posted by hpv

The real question is if Torchlight III will hit before Diablo III. Signs point to yes.

Delay or not Torchlight IV will still debut before Diablo III.
