Finally, can't wait for Torchlight 2!

Posted by Vodun

Torchlight!

Posted by SpartanAmbrose

Oh sweet, a Torchlight quick look!

Posted by INFINITE_CASH

Cool

Posted by Venatio

I'd really like Torchlight 2 right about now

Posted by Killboyy777

I thought this was coming with co-op support???

Edited by Piranesi

 
Shame for the TL2 delay but we're hardly lacking in decent games at the moment - triple A, downloads and handhelds are all really strong.

Yeah, seems like a lost opportunity. I wont buy it without COOP, no way when its available on PC as an SP game already.

Mindless dungeon crawlers... BORING!

Man, this makes me want to load up the PC version. Considering it would run on ANYTHING, I don't see why you wouldn't get that version, especially since it's been on sale for $5 numerous times. But this looks like a solid enough version if you insist on being a luddite.

Torchlight was not exactly a super graphically intensive game.
It's wierd seeing the graphics downgraded further.

I'm amazed how everything Brad says about the PC version is wrong.

and when it is released im sure their graphics will suck pretty bad compared to other games out at that time (diablo 3 if it ever gets released) 
 
The whole point of Torchlight was to use it as a techdemo for their upcoming MMO... guess that aint happening anytime soon ;)

Not available on PSN, right?
 
Oh well.

Early Morning quick look!

Seriously. Playing on Hard is a must. Normal is a cake-walk.

I thought hard was a cakewalk. It was only any fun at very hard or whatever the highest difficulty is, and even that wasn't really hard enough. The AI is just too easy to exploit.
Posted by somethingdumb

Kinda looks really passive. Seems like 90% of the game is holding down the X button.

Posted by Saften
@AaronChance: True. My point was that if you don't play on hard (or the harder difficulties), it's playing the game for you. It can quickly get boring that way.
Posted by Slaker117

Seems like a neat game, but it all looks too cluttered to me. Hard to keep track of what's going on.

I'd love me some Torchlight.

As with most games that have a lot going on though, it is much easier to know what's going on when you're actually playing it yourself.  
 
Watching someone play a dual-stick shooter just hurts my brain, but it's not so bad when I play it myself.

@Kaigan:  nope, microsoft decided to publish it after runic announced it. kinda frustrating really, i really wanted to play it on a console since my laptop is crap (it crashed while playing puzzle agent, so i dont trust it anymore)

When Torchlight 2 comes out, I'll still equally won't care about graphics. That's not why people come to these games.  Diablo 2 still looks fine to me.

I play on hard +hardcore. I burned through 20 characters so far I loved every one of them :-(

This really made me want to play Torchlight but I'll probably get it for Mac when it goes on sale. 

Edited by Tetraphagia

This gets me super excited for Torchlight 2. And I wonder if anything from this release will influence the PC version... like, it seemed like loot was way easy to pick up, instead of having to click on things. 
 
Edit: oh hey or I could have just waited and watched the rest of the video and had my question answered, nice.

Posted by Pabba

Gonna pick this up and help get me back into looting and grinding.

Well I was not talking about if YOU care about graphics and me being one of the people coming to "these games" I guess I proved that WE do care about graphics (and sounds, artwork and so on)

I'm sure you're correct, but can you give some examples?
Posted by BeautifulSpaceCowboy

I will stick to the PC version, but I am glad people can finally get this game on XBLA. Now, let's get some TL2.

Yo, Destroyer bubble shield.

Thanks for the quick look, this looks totally mindless...will pass :)

Posted by darkjester74

Nice QL, will definitely pick this one up day one.  Ack, too many awesome games coming out this month!

Posted by bcjohnnie

Man, Jeff is playing this game in the most boring way I can possibly imagine.  Rolling a warrior and picking skills to make it easier to pick up ranged weapons seems crazy to me, but whatevs.
 
It seems there is totally no reason to go with this version if you already have the PC version running.  I'm interested to know how the XBLA version handles abilities that are targeted AOEs (like the ranged rain of arrows skill or whatever it's called).
 
Anyway, this does make me want to play my dude on the pc version again.

They wouldn't invest the time and resources to put co-op into a port of a game that didn't have it on PC and then sell it for less than the regular price of the original version. Besides Torchlight 2 will have co-op. They don't want to make the sequel obsolete before it is even out in a few months.
Posted by litrock
@sixpin:  There is a connotative meaning of luddite as someone who fears technology (specifically new technology), in this case those newfangled PC games.
Posted by mrhollender

Man, that sucks about not being able to choose between Left and Right hand attacks.  I don't see why they can't just map each hand to a separate button.  I'm still going to buy it though, as Torchlight is fresh squeezed pimp juice.

Posted by sixpin
@litrock: Yeah, I know. Neo-luddism. I wasn't being very serious. Still, I don't know if it is really an apt comparison. Calling the nearly 2 year old version of Torchlight, or the PCs that can run it, new technology is a stretch. I'm not trying to start an argument with you; it is your opinion. I just found your choice of words interesting.

I'm also amazed at the dismissiveness that some people seem to have of this port. It isn't like there is any sacred ground. This is a small developer that is trying to make money. I own the PC version, but I'll get the XBLA one as well to show my support for Runic and get some achievement points in the process.

Nice to see the consoles being the ones that get the shitty port years after the game originally came out for a change. Here's hoping it's the start of a trend.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome when someone gets stuck with a shitty version of an awesome game.  
 
.... Fuck no. Here's to hoping developers make sure their games are identical on every platform.

Of course I would prefer everyone gets what they want, but as someone who has had to put up with shitty port after shitty port on dozens of games I have really looked forward to over the years I'm jaded enough that I want to see the other side put up with it for a change. See how gracefully they deal with it.

@Curufinwe:   There may be other examples, but I did notice that Brad seems to think the gold picking up on run over was an addition to the XBLA version.  That was possible on the PC version, it was an option in the menus. 
 
EDIT:  It also just occurred to me that maybe he meant an addition from the regular old dungeon crawler formula of Diablo.

oh man I wish my torchlight save file didnt get corrupted, so I could go  back in and play this again. And I was having a blast on my second playthrough.
