 Im okay with that.

Gives me something to try out before D3 actually does release.

Seeing as ive beaten D2 @ D2LoD and D1 x amount of times.

Get over it already.

Is it already released? On the videos it looked like a fun game.

"Cheap diablo"? Sure, it's not Blizzard. Nonetheless it could be a great game given the chance.

Some of it's features sound nice too.

# Retirement System – Once characters are sufficiently leveled up, they can “retire” and bestow specific benefits and perks to new characters.
# Pets – Players will choose a pet to accompany them. Pets can level up along with the player, and will help in battle, carry items, and perform a variety of helpful services.
# Character Classes – Players will create and customize a character and choose an animal companion. Through cosmetic choices, skill path decisions, and the treasures they acquire, each character will be custom-tailored and different.
# Fishing – Players can take a break from the high-energy pace of adventuring to visit one of the fishing holes and relax and see what they can catch. Fish have interesting benefits for the player and pet, and other rewards can also be discovered
# Included Editor – Runic Games is embracing our modding community by including an editor so our players can create and design their own content.

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

The editor you get with the game is gonna give it a lot of replayability, I think you can make your own classes and mobs as well as levels. ill bet Its going to have a decent modding community.

Im guessing because its not being developed as an MMO.

Mythos was the name of the game. It's now being developed by some asian company.

As others said, D3 ain't MMO (the word I heard was 4 max in a game), and we'll be lucky if it get out in 2010. Torchlight is slated to be a MMO, so it is justifiable to have it here.

The Diablo series is THE series as far as I am concerned, so I'm gonna get anything even remotely associated with it like this game.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."

ugh i hope that 4 players thing isnt true considering D2 was up to 8, and given that was about 9 years ago, it should increase in size with better technology, not decrease. i remember when they did that to the Ghost Recon shooter series on PS2, from Ghost Recon 2 to Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter went from having 8 vs 8 to 4 vs 4, even though it was an almost identical game (just different maps, but same exact graphics, weapons, etc). the decrease in size pretty much murdered the game, i never understood it either and pissed me off to no end, shortly found myself just going back to GR2

Anyway, sorry for the off topic stuff. ill have to check this game out. Oct 27th, only a few days away. Any of you know the cost? or if theyre going to have any free trial deal?

Torchlight looks very promising. I will probably play both D3 and T.

No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

"Q: Will I be able to play Torchlight online?
 

A: Because of the relatively short development window and tiny development team, we decide to focus our efforts on making a complete single-player experience. However, we are already in development of a massively multiplayer action-RPG set in the world of Torchlight for future release. "

Take what you will from that.  Personally I've given up on that team after Hellgate and I wanna see what the new team comes up with for Diablo 3.

Make games you want to play.

You know, I can't find where I heard that it was going to be only 4 people, so I'll retract that until I can nail it down. Considering that their goal is to make the game most fun in coop mode (with PVP outside of regular games), I gotta think they are not going to cut the number that can be on a game.

Torchlight I believe is going to cost $20 to download.

This is not the same team that worked on Hellgate London specifically, This is the team from Flagship that was based out of Seattle that worked on Mythos not Hellgate so comparing it to Hellgate is useless since Mythos only started as a testbed for hte server architecture for Hellgate then took on a life of its own and was actually coming along really well when flagship went under. Its now being developed by hanbisofts parent company....

Diablo 3 has been in development for ages now. I highly doubt they copied from anyone.

Guess it had to happen. Now we have the inevitable Diablo clone!! OMG does the sacrilege never end? When will people learn that Blizz invented the genre?
