Together at least. The Diablo 3 thread is now a megathread for BOTH games. But let's lay down something thick here. Information!

Which game should I purchase?

Both! Both games are spectacular! Both made by pretty much the same people in terms of mindset. One is more dark and grim, and the other is more bright and shiney (Hell, both games are. But don't let this stop you!)

Diablo 3 is made by Blizzard Entertainment. Making games in the previous years such as Diablo 2, World of Warcraft, and Warcraft. The makers of D3 are the "Successors" of the dungeon crawling genre.

Torchlight was made by a separate branch that left Blizzard. Not because they did not agree to disagree with their company values or anything. But these were the prime people who made Diablo 1. And they thought they could make a great game. Torchlight 1. Which they did. The first game in the series was great. But the 2nd game pretty much answers all issues related with the first game.

What are the features of Diablo 3?

- Auction House. Which eliminates going into a room and trading with people on rare items.

- Very flexible graphics engine. Diablo 3 is playable in pretty much any computer. But it's nice to play it on a computer that can handle it maxxed out. Regardless, Diablo 3 is -playable-

- New characters and a very flexible talent system where any build is viable for doing all levels of difficulty.

- Very easy to get into multiplayer games. No Ladder games. Simple clicks and customization for your own ordeal. Vanity stuff is galore!

Cons of Diablo 3

- Always Online. Even in Single player. DO NOT BITCH ABOUT THIS. I SWEAR TO GOD IF I FIND ONE POST ABOUT ALWAYS BEING ONLINE I SWEAR TO GOD I AM GONNA FLIP MY FUCKING WIG. IT ELIMINATES BOTS. FUCKING DEAL WITH IT

- Right now things are kinda bumpy. But in the end things will be smooth.

What are some features of Torchlight 2?

I'm gonna link the Steam features for this one!

- Multiplayer - Play co-op with your friends via LAN or over the Internet for free. No subscriptions, no item sales. Our new matchmaking service lets you find friends, start new games, and join existing games. And, as always, you can play single-player offline as well.
- Customizable Characters - Players will create and customize a character from one of four brand new classes. Each class can be played as either male or female, with customized cosmetic features and looks to make each individual character stand out. All new skills and loot give loads of opportunity for unique character builds.
- Moddability - TorchED, the Torchlight II editor, will give players the ability to create their own mods, adding even more content to the world. Have your friends download the same mod and play together. TorchED will be available as a separate download very shortly after launch.
- New User Interface - Torchlight II boasts a new and improved user interface, designed to be easier than ever for new players to pick up and play. This intuitive interface ensures you can focus on playing the game the way you want to.
- Open World - We're not only in the town of Torchlight anymore! Explore vast overland areas and multiple hub towns, fight through rain, snow, day and night. Our level randomization ensures new layouts, paths, loot, and monsters every time you play.
- New Game Plus - In New Game Plus, the game's not over until you say it is. Once you've beaten Torchlight II's primary campaign, you can start again with the same character for a significantly greater challenge. You'll keep all of the skills, gold, and gear you worked so hard for!
- Pets & Fishing - These popular features make their return in Torchlight II in improved form. More choices, better effects, and your pet will still make the run to town to sell your loot so you donít have to.

- $20 Pricetag! Don't have enough money to play Diablo 3 and want a cheaper alternative? Torchlight is for you!

Cons of Torchlight 2

- GAME IS NOT OUT YET NO CONS ARE NEEDED. CHECK BACK LATER!

To prevent bitching. Let's get a few things clear

1- Let's not bitch about how Blizzard is having a hard time with their servers. Sure, things are pretty fucking rough right now but aren't all online games like this? Go to 4chan or gamefaqs if you want to bitch about this.

2- Let's not have a fucking war about which game is better. I don't want to see a single post about this and your opinion does not matter. Both games are going to be very fucking good. Don't like Diablo 3? Don't like Torchlight? Go to 4chan I'm sure they care. I don't. We Don't.

If someone posts about how much either game sucks due to it's flaws that is NOT gameplay or anything dealing with gameplay I swear to God I am going to fucking cuss you out and feel no remore and I am going to keep telling you to get the FUCK OUT until time stops so help me God.

There! Enjoy your new OP!

I want to play with Xeogamers!

Meh.

The always-online thing seems to make mods a non-option, which pretty much killed any interest I have in it.

Diablo 2 suffered from a lot of retarded design decisions - if over half the skills in the game are worthless, you've botched your skill system. And that it took so long to even add the ability to respec, well... I have some concerns about how well things will go with Diablo 3.

I'll look into it when I have a system more capable of running it, but I think I'll stick with modded D2: LoD.

Well the always online is to prevent from duplications like what was on the previous games. Which was one of the biggest problems and completely broke the games online.

As for mods; I am sure blizzard might pull through. However, they are really going to focus on single player. So sadly, this might not be an option for most of us.

However. The game isn't out yet. So why bother think about modding the game?

That modding is my primary concern should tell you how much faith I don't have in them getting it right the third time.

Same reason modding is my primary concern with Skyrim, except there at least I'm sure it will be an option.

Yeah I hope so. As much as the Gamebryo engine sucked, it was really flexible and made modding so easy with Oblivion/F3/NV.

Thex, have you checked out Tourchlight by chance?

If you can't afford it you can use my CD key and try it out if you want to. The game holds a ton of mods that are pretty awesome from the community and the game was partially made by some of the classic Diablo developers. Which in my opinion, is basically Diablo 2.5 with mod support. Only issue with the game is absolutely no Online Multiplayer, which is going to be solved when Tourchlight 2 comes out.

Just hit me up with a PM if you are interested. I don't mind giving you my key if you want to play. Game holds a slight DRM and can only be used 5 times before you can't install it again. Which already has been used three times. I don't mind giving you one of the copies.

Check your Battle.net account. Cause Blizzard just shipped off 100,000 Beta keys.

Thankfully. I was one of the lucky few who got into the beta! It's installing as we speak. I'll return with pics!

Servers are taking a huuuge hit. Even on single player there is still lag galore. Thankfully there isnt a lot of people on right now. And I beat the Skeleton king! Which means I beat the beta. As shown here...

Yep, and I already pre-ordered the Collectors edition too. I was going to get this game for free using the dedication to WoW and all. But I like my games physical. Any game I really want I always get a physical copy; any game I -really- want I always go all out.

But speaking from someone who has already played it. It's fun. It really is. Even though I played just a little bit of it; it's going to be a remarkable experience for anyone who not only played Diablo 2, but newcomers as well.

It's one of those games everyone has to pick up. It will be. Trust me. Blizzard did a good job with this one.

Wow the music sounds totally old school (as in like Diablo 2, Starcraft, etc lol).

I need a mic ASAP! Not sure if I will get it right away, but I might cave... mostly everyone I know is going to be all over it.

Just found out that the servers will not unlock until 3AM my time. Which means even after I get the game I have to wait three fucking hours to even get into it.

Fuck my life.

E- My Body is ready.

1- Balanced foods. Bananas, peanuts (No salt), plenty of water, Salad (From OG)
2- Theanine to lower mental stress for long nights. You can buy this over the counter and need no perscription to get it. Dirt cheap too (Around $15 for 100 caps)
3- somnidren (THIS DRUG CAN BE DANGEROUS IF YOU ARE NOT USED TO IT. USE WITH CAUTION) to improve REM sleep. Normal sleep for human beings is about 7 hours. With this, the 7 hours will feel like 12.

If you plan on staying up for a 24 hour marathon. DON'T! This is not good for you!

Take small breaks. Stand up. Look outside a window for awhile. Stretch your legs. And take 15 minutes of your time every three hours.

When your body feels like it's had enough. Go to bed for 7 hours, wake up, and get back into the action. If you don't feel like getting up. Lay in bed for another two hours. Diablo 3 isnt going anywhere.

See you guys in Sanctuary tonight!

Installed, but the ever annoying "Error 37" kept me from connecting to Battle.net. I finally was able to log in just for the game to tell me that I was unable to create a character. Might try the European servers, however...

USA servers are taking a beating. "Emergency maintenance" every three hours!
