Game is out today. T2 is getting even better reviews than the original (which I played on XBOX 360). Wait for XBOX 360 version, or get PC version today?

junobeach - Get it for PC, there will be a lot of mods, and ARPG games just work better on keyboard/mouse imo

That was my initial thought, but the XBOX version of Torchlight was actually better control-wise imo (no carpal-tunnel from mouse clicks). I'm really not big into mods.

There is no official release date for XBOX, but given the success the original had one it, the sequel on XBOX is pretty much a lock.

edit: nevermind, PC it is...

Played last night for 4 hours. Tons of fun so far. No goddamn Blizzard auction house/real money auction house overriding the game. Loot drops...for you... to use... for yourself. Crazy in a game like this, yeah. Also, you get to actually pick your own talents. At this point the game shows what a fuck up D3 is.

I DO wish they would have went for a gothic, gritty art style, but what they did they did well.

The guys at Penny Arcade essentially said that everything D3 did wrong, this does right:

Started Elite game with Berserker last night. Storyline not as epic as D3, but I enjoy playing it more...especially since you don't have to be online to do so.

The physics is better in D3. The impact of weapon on enemy/crate/breakable object seems much more realistic in D3. But both games are fun as hell.


So in TL2, can enchanting your weapons destroy them? Whenever, I try to enchant something, the background voice says "You got lucky" or something like that. It makes me think that enchanting could potentially break your weapon.

If so, that sucks...cuz some of my shit took forever to find. Anyone know the rule on this?

My only beef with the game is not being able to respec all of your talents. But otherwise, great sequel.

Its good and bad. Makes it worthwile to create multiple characters to test different builds etc. Every decision has more impact. Of course if you dont feel like levelling another character it can be a pain in the ass.

I guess because I don't actually remember the first game's storyline, I'm lost in the second one. I actually remember Diablo's storyline...but it seems like T2 is ripping off D2 (hero from first game is now villain).

Greenup go dual wield claw weapons. Beef up the passive skill that heals on crits, and the armor penetration one. Stack armor pen gems. You will rip through enemies. My toon Is level 61 and all I ever do is reg attacks cause it crits almost everytime. Also my execute it at 95% so I'm hiting with both weapons everytime. The heals you get from that passive skill will keep you at full health almost all the time. Phone Post

Yeah it'll work. The reason I put claw weapons is they have a passive armor pen to them already. Which in turn helps you crit more. But really any two of the same weapons will work Phone Post
