Torchlight 2 - Only 19.99!
« on: August 26, 2011, 07:59:47 am »
It was just announced today for only 19.99. They've also announced the forth and final class Embermage, joining the Berserker, Outlander and Engineer. I was expecting them to jump up the price for the sequel but I i'll settle for a $20 price tag.

Who else is grabbing this game day 1?


I need a new tag.

I still need to play the first one.

I got it for something like $2.50 during that Steam Summer sale.

You can't even cast spells.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

This whole thing was pretty funny.
This is what they're talking about, an emote in the beta--

Oh hey, I'm in too. I've been playing by myself so far, but playing with more people sounds fun.
What class and level are you?

I've tried out the outlander and the embermage.
I dunno if I'm just bad at outlander or what but embermage is ridiculously powerful.

I'm gonna leave engineer and berserker for the full release. Gonna use berserker as my main dude I figure.
Torchlight 1's classes were all updated but are disabled in Torchlight 2. I figure we could have a couple of folks playing as those too if they wanted.

I wonder where Pixxel went though. I need to talk to him about this thing.
EDIT: :O He messaged me.

Played a little more with some random people. That was neat, but I think I'm done for now 'til release.
Veteran seems like the best difficulty even if the boss guys sometimes get some really overpowered shots in on you. Normal is way too easy though.
I'm not going anywhere near casual.

Heh, I was trying to get through Torchlight 1 just to know the story (I know, it's not important. I'm still curious), so I made a mage on the lowest difficulty setting that focusses on minions. Most of the time I can just walk around picking stuff up while my summons deal with the monsters :P

Bought four copies for 'family game night'. Biggest headache is that you need to have a account on Runic Games to cross connect through Steam before you can play multi-player. While not normally a big deal it has put a huge release spike on both Steam and Runic which required off-hours logging in to make accounts.

I never finished T1, but T2 is a blast and the family is blasting along happily. So far so good.

Would so get this game but my fiances lappy is currently full of dust and needs maintence to stop it over heating making it hard to play games so we need to get some cash together that isn't already earmarked to pay for the wedding.
