"We don't want our monetisation stuff to offer ways to skip the game because the game is boring"

If more developers thought that way maybe today F2P market wouldn't look like a steaming pile of goo that much....

If more developers thought that way then there wouldn't be many F2P games.

fair point, they have to make money though. I am open to change, but the fact is, most people spend more than $15 a month on microtransactions.

I just fired up Steam to check on my Torchlight playtime and it's 58 hours played. And that's only since they've actually been tracking playtime.

This MMO will devour my time and I'll love every minute of it.

That's not what you people were saying when they brought out Hellgate...

I hope the Torchlight MMO...

-- adds better class/avatar customizability
-- also permits dungeon soloing (perhaps through scaling?)
-- offers more flexibility regarding rotating the camera angle
-- makes at least a passing attempt at building some story/lore

I enjoyed Torchlight but found it a tad tedious and uninvolving. It was difficult to play it for very long without getting bored.

I need to finish my copy, I got 2/3rds of the way through and then a whole bunch of other games found their way on my hard drive and 360.

If anyone hasn't played it yet, it's on sale today for $5 on Steam. Sort of annoyed since I paid $10 2 months ago. :/

Will definitely play the MMO when it comes out.

Ima keep my eye on this because if it's one thing I hate about MMOs it's forced grouping. I'll group if I feel like it, but I'm a pretty hard core soloist and get nerdrage if I'm forced to group up against my will.

And I don't mind microtrans, so long as the game is F2P, and the cash shop has fun things like appearance items, mounts and pets (and none of the cs items are required to play).

its a fun game. it gets a little repetitive but if its a f2p mmo there is no pressure to spend all day glued to it to "get your money's worth".
