It just hit me today that Torchlight 2 had been delayed from it's Spring release to July and now it's looking like it won't even be making it during the summer. It also seems like there has been less and less coverage which has seriously killing my interest in this game. It's the weird "Duke" effect where if a game gets delayed multiple times, you know there are issues with it and the outcome is probably not going to be pretty. If this gets pushed to Diablo 3 release territory then it's highly unlikely I'll even be giving it a shot. It's a damn shame, it could have been a wonderful lead-in to Diablo 3.
Waning interest in this game
Nope. It'll be out end of summer, and it got delayed because Runic stopped to put Torchlight on XBLA, not because of any dire or doubtful development issues. The game's coming along great. Read this Co-optimus link where they were shown the game at E3.
At least we are informed on when it's coming out from Runic, unlike Diablo3 where they just tell everyone the release date is put into this magic 8-ball & everyone getting a different response from it. Front page on this has Q3 & as this is so close to the previous game (as far as a bulk of the tech) it's not going to take forever for them to make it, plus after seeing all the mods done on the last one they might cherry pick those ideas from the mods to put in the game making it more fun.
I was looking at getting the original Torchlight. Not now, but later. On 360, though. My computer is just a regular ol' work laptop, not anything special.
Torchlight has a netbook mode and will run on almost any machine. You should get it on PC if it's cheaper. Actually, it probably controls a bit better on PC as well.
I really can't wait, and I'm kinda fed up with waiting...All I ask for is a solid release date. Runic have been bastards to me on the official site, teasing me with in-depth information on level design and randomization (I live for randomization!) So it's madening to not know when the hell it's coming out, it was bad enough when it got delayed the first time. I keep reading different things about the release and never know who's actually right. The "coming 2011" on the official site doesn't really help.
It's done when it's done, yada yada I know, but god-damn I love Torchlight so much.
I was pretty unimpressed with the first (yeah, flame the hell out of me for it), so I don't foresee myself picking this up until it hits a Steam Sale anyway.why would we do that, you are entitled to an opinion, i personally love the game and its random dungeons especially the infinite dungeon which can be a blast to crawl your way through but i can certainly see why people wouldnt like it.
cant wait for the second one, im looking forward to co-op i think it will bring alot to the game.
I ended up quitting the first game right at the last stretch, because the enemies just became so powerful they could kill me before I got near them. As in, I hadn't died a single time until I died dozens of times within an hour.
For sure, Torchlight 2 has my purchase though, because the first was such a blast and filled in a gap in my heart. I just hope Diablo III doesn't follow too quickly after.
