September 20th 2012-

It's Out!!!!

My most anticipated game of 2011 is finally out! more than a year after I expected it, but hey, I'm still happy and it's a great game. I had intended to have a sort of matchmaking based on locale here in the OP. So if you want to give your name and rough location. (I do not need, nor do I want your street address, I want East Coast US, Bolivia, The Chezch Republic, etc. so that we can matchmake) This is of course at your own discretion, if you don't like us (and who would?) you don't have to tell us a bloody thing about yourself. If however you think you might like to play with us, I'll gladly compile a list of names for the purposes of matchmaking.

The reason for the location is that it's a P2P client, and because of this, your region is going to make is easier to find people with relatively low pings.

--------------------------


Damn Diablo III to hell I say, Torchlight II all the way!!! (That sounded like a cheer didn't it? :shadedshu)

Anyway, Runic game's Torchlight II is coming soon. Mid 2012 ostensibly, and yes, it's the middle of 2012. So during the beta I managed to ask and get answered the question of the type p2p play client they planned, and it is indeed a "pure" p2p (not p2p server) that means a worry about connections in game right? Actually it wasn't bad unless your mates were half a world away. I think the one time it got bad for me someone connected from Hong Kong, while I was on the East Coast of the U.S.

The beta is over and was a lot of fun. I think I played every day after I'd been admitted into it. That is not to say it was an uncriticizable, but It did suck me in well enough that I was happy to have spent twenty bucks on it.

Also as an update: They don't actually plan on using steamworks for matchmaking, so your steam handle is moot, you're going to have to friend people based on the account name you come up with, so if you want to put it up here (after the game has been launched and you've actually made a handle for yourself) feel free, I'll gladly post a list. They're doing this because they're selling it from the perfect world website as well as via steam. So my earlier presumption about matchmaking was false, sorry to have wasted your time.

Torchlight 2 ready for Pre-Order :)

http://www.torchlight2game.com/

Available from Steam or from Perfect World (PayPal). $20 USD, Steam has a buy 3-get 1 free (four pack for $60), didn't see that on Perfect World, but really only needed two :)

Thanks for the bump, I should have been on top of that...I'd intended to keep up with this, but most of the updates and media weren't that exciting. I thought it would be out by now, and it would have moved on to finding players for co-op and similar. Soon though it seems, June sounds likely given what I've heard.

Yup, that's what we've been seeing from the rumor mills. Nothing solid yet, but does look a lot more promising.

I'll remove the quotes in the title though.

June you say? This should be a good game. First one was lots of good ol' hack n' slash fun.

According to the grapevine, expect more of the same from TL2, with more of everything (including the fact that Act I of 3 is by itself, the size of the entirety of TL1). There are tons of screenshots and vids online, feel free to Google :). However, I don't expect this to be a D3 killer. I'm not getting D3 for many of the crappy things they did with it, not because TL2 will be that much better. If they (Blizz) had done right by the players :slap:, I'd just be getting both and agonizing over which to start up each evening :) :toast:

Again, just check out the mass of Screenshots and vids out there. It looks to be outstanding, and just more of what made TL1 so much fun. Tons of Kill! Kill! Kill! :nutkick: and Loot! Loot! Loot! :pimp:

I am probably going to get Diablo 3 too, but I'm hoping torchlight 2 drives down the price a bit (It'll never happen :ohwell:)

It was great, I want to get together the names of those who buy it (steam screen names) so people can coordinate games with one another. And hopefully work out good partners in their area. The multiplayer is LAN and P2P so we're not going to get the benefit of dedicated servers, but I think there are a good few people around here with sufficiently powerful rigs and good enough internet connections to host (not sure if it's straight P2P or P2P server, but anyway)

How is it only $20? Since it's Perfect World, does that mean there is a f2p-like business model in place?

It's a Runic Games game, but being sold thru Steam and PerfectWorld. Originally it was posted that it would be sold directly by Runic as well as Steam, but they may have not been able to support the process cleanly themselves, so I assume that they outsourced it.

It won't be playable until June, so don't panic, though I heard rumblings of a beta for pre-orders, if that gives you any motivation (pure rumor)

same, why don't you give us your steam handle and your location (roughly, I don't want your address, I want your approximate location, since torchlight II is a p2p client, our locations will help us find other players)

since it is multiplayer in a way, does this game have an auction house or what?

Actually I have an answer for you, there is a "Trade window" where you can trade with other players, no organized auction house or the like however.
