Great find, thanks!

I enabled these settings right away:

COMBAT LOG :1
VSYNCH :1

Game is terrific, only issue IMO is the overwhelming amount of dropped items, I wish there was a setting somewhere to reduce the drop rate. Fate was plagued by the same issue AFAIR.

Just got this game through steam based on your comments, because if it's at all like Diablo I'm gonna love it. Download speeds aren't the best right now, but it should be down and installed tomorrow morning.

I just finished with the demo....this game is a blast!
I played Fate way back and pretty much thought Torch was going to be more of the same, which was ehh.....but its more like a modern Diablo1/2 and crazy addictive.
I can't believe I'm even thinking about another game.....but I must play more Torch

It's so worth it for the price. I'm hooked!

I know that combat logging records combat, but what does it do exactly? Put it into a file or show it on the screen?

Love the game it's exactly like Diablo. If you liked Diablo then you'll love this game. I have been playing for longer than I care to admit and I just don't want to stop. I even fished a rare set piece . There is a kind of horadric cube but it's not a cube but a person in the town. He can combine similar gems etc. Well back to the game...

Vanquisher seemed a bit easier to play so far. Mostly because it's easier to kite and avoid damage/overwhelms and still do top damage. Only time it was close was when a miniboss teleported behind me on a narrow bridge so I could not run back and the front was full of adds. Almost died, but managed to pull by. Playing on hard core very hard.

I picked it up today too, man what a fun game.
i was playing a bit on my mac, after I got done with my aion grind. And whoa, the time flew by playing this. I do not like the amt of dropped items though. Getting gear shouldn't be this easy imo.

Man I wish this had lan capability.

I still can't believe how good is this game, I would love to call my boss and ask for a sick day, but I won't do it, haha.

Downloading demo now. Just bought The Witcher on Steam (Finally available worldwide) and Dragon Age Deluxe. Need to test before I get this.

I'm currently playing Titan Quest. How does this compare? What is the story like? Does it have one... Ah never mind, I am downloading the demo after all. ::

Having so much fun with this game - definitely a steal at 15! Playing as a Vanquisher and I'm awesome.

My favorite game of all time is Diablo 2.


So you guys are saying I will like this? Does it seem like the type game that could possibly get "old" quick, like Fate?

Anyone else not able to get AA to work in the demo? I checked it, and it minimized the game as if it was changing a setting, then it went back into the menu and the AA box was still unchecked. I assume they wouldn't turn this off for the demo so I am not sure what is going on.
