    Oh yeah, you can totally customize your character's appearance/gender a fair bit in 2. It's definitely a more complete game. Much like the jump from Diablo 1 to 2, really.

    the customization is pretty spartan in 2 but it's still streets ahead of the original

    So would I be better off just skipping to 2 then? Or is the first game pretty good if I can get past these annoyances.

    I've been enjoying the first game a lot from what I've played, but I also haven't played the second one yet.

    2 is basically the first one but better. There's no big issue with story, either, which I will spoil here:
    THERE IS A BIG BAD GUY

    YOU KILL THE BIG BAD GUY

    And the setup for Torchlight 2 is
    EVIL HAS RETURNED

    I really enjoyed the first one but I honestly can't think of any reason not to skip it if it's annoying you

    Skip Torchlight 1.

    2 is kind of worth playing if you really like Diablo 2. These days? I slogged through it and never felt the need to play again after beating it once.

    Ok cool, I'll start 2 then. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on an incredible game or story.

    Also Torchlight 1 had one of the most annoying endbosses ever

    I'm talking just crash-against-the-rocks style of defeating him

    I started playing this Dino D-Day game. It's kind of amazing. Just a team based shooter with dinosaurs, what more could I want!?

    I don't know why anyone would ever play as a human though.

    Oho, so Torchlight 2 has mods? Any good ones I need?

  • Options
    SeriouslySeriously Registered User regular
    does two still have that unidentified item bullshit

    if so there's probably an always identified mod that just cuts that right out

    It's going to be a matter of personal preference, but since it's through steam it makes managing mods pretty easy. Just keep in mind that you're limited to 10 active mods at a time. Sort mods by highest rated and try out the ones that you care about.

    I received XCOM and DOTA 2 from @SporkAndrew and @That Dave Fella respectively

    You crazy bastards

    The copy of XCOM was to make you feel better about being sent the DOTA2.

    I didn't even realise I had that copy of XCOM. I have no idea where it came from. It was on your wishlist, though, so I thought it could go to a good home.

    I think it might haunt you, so watch out for that.

    Oh, man. I was playing a mission as The Mole, and got a wild hair to try and dig through a really thick wall to see if I could bust out of the entire building. As I dug, letters started to appear. Then more, and more - a whole hidden message, put there only for people who decided to excavate this one random chunk of the building.

    I think I'm in love with this game.

    What I want to know is this.
    Is this an accurate scenario? If so, I think I need it

    Torchlight 2 is more fun than I feel like giving it credit for because it has a lot of the same point hordy grindy mechanics that D2 had which I conceptually dislike

    but fuck if it doesn't scratch a certain arpg itch

    Cross posting here, in case people are interested: The store page is supremely slow, right now but the Square-Enix online shop is discounting pretty much every game this week, through next Thursday, 5/2.

    The deepest discounts look to be had on PC Download stuff. The pages load fine if you select a platform from the menu. It's just the main Store page that doesn't seem to be loading at all.

    Depends on the game but most new stuff should be Steamworks.

    all things should be steamworks

    in fact all things should just be on steam

    all other companies please just shhhhhhh and let your dreams die, nobody likes your shitty service

    if I type 'steam' into the squenix store search field, all that turns ups is DLC for Just Cause / Lara Croft GoL and DX:HR stuff...

    I haven't looked at every individual page, but a lot of them do appear to be Steam activations. Hitman, Tomb Raider, Sleepy Dogs, etc.

    Speaking of, Sleepy Dogs is $7.50 for the PC Download version, so people should be buying it.

    What's the word on Mars: War Logs?

    Looks like it could be a sleeper hit or, and I say this in the most loving possible way, a repeat of Alpha Protocol.
