/drool

When will this be out as a single player. Since there are literaly no games I have been looking forward to this year (beside champions.. but no more excitement as i hate companies that jerk around in release dates) this has gone straight to the top of the list!

you can log in at all? i can post all i want, but it ain't letting me actually log in to change settings...

back on topic, Torchlight looks great fun - i'm curious as to whether this single-player side will at least have a LAN or "connect to host IP:XXXXX" option, since playing with a friend would greatly increase its value for the year.

I can't login to change my avatar or anything either. I've emailed Massively but I never got a reply (same with my link to 38 Studios buying Big Huge Games).

I assumed it would, similar to Neverwinter, If it didnt that would be a huge oversight, or maybe they will do the lobby n game thing like diablo on Bnet?

And yea, I have to log in with this horrible random generated number I wish I could change it to something I didnt have to write down to remember.

What does Diablo 3 have to do with it? Torchlight will be out this year. Diablo 3 . . . next year if we're lucky. Why choose one over the other, they're not even going to be competing.

No room in your heart for two games? I heard there's enough Jack to go around.

That pet system (as described in the video, NOT in your article. You do still have to worry about pet health) is exactly how it works in the video game Fate. It's pretty fun.

"Coming from the desginers who made Diablo, Mythos, Mythos II and Fate..."

Mythos II? Since when?

"Coming from the desginers who made Diablo, Mythos, Mythos II and Fate,..."

should probably be

"Coming from the desginers who made Diablo, Diablo II, Mythos and Fate,..."

it is a purely single player version, no LAN capabilities. They're concentrating on single player first, then making it into an mmo later.

The big feature is the modding tools that come free with the game. You can edit your char, the game's items, drop rates, xp gain rate and even build levels, quests, dungeons and buildings while in the game. So you don't have to exit out.

If its single player only, everyone will pirate it, the only way they will make much money is if they do an online option.

This looks like it has potential. I certainly enjoyed Mythos while it was still around.

Looks like Mythos, which isn't a bad thing. Hopefully they learned a lot from their Mythos experience and fix the bad parts.

I can't wait for this game already. It's Mythos but better looking and with more new stuff! Hopefully we won't have to wait long to test this one out.

The bit about the Shadow Worm is wrong too, it should be Shadow Armor. Kevin Green (one of the devs) said so here:

Whether there is an MMO coming after or not, launching this as Single Player only, without even a Co-Op through the single player campaign option, misses the boat in my view.

A year and a half later? Nah...too long.
