    downloading it, this was one the arcade games i been interested in, the quality of arcade games now is on par if not better than the average retail game I’m finding myself buying 2 maybe 3 arcade games per month with 1 retail game

  • Russell Gorall

    Looks like Diablo. Speaking of which, I could go for a Torchlight sale.

    • NeoVampyre

      Speaking of Torchlight, are we gonna get a console version of Toruchlight 2 that is released on PC Stream today? I loved the 1st and want the second for my Xbox.

      • ElektroDragon

        No. Something about the console not being powerful enough or the game being too big. I call BS. Torchlight II would be successful as a RETAIL 360 release, honestly.

        • Z4M0

          I call shenanigans ! utter BS… now that arcades are 2.5 Gb there isn’t a game being released digitally too big, and as for power… sure!

          We got Gears of War pushing the unreal engine every year, we got crysis 2 but Torchlight 2 is too much for the box. Plain BS. and if it was true, why not releasing an optimized version ?

          Dunno what’s worst, they don’t being honest, or in case they are, they being lazy about a xbox conversion.

          • ElektroDragon

            Agree… I hear its because of RAM limitations. But that doesn’t make any sense. Torchilght 2 is not Gears of War 3 or Skyrim. If Gears or Skyrim can do it, so can Torchlight 2! Stinks of lazy developers to me.

  • Synasta Aphotic

    I would have been purchasing this game has been able to play with my friends online but you guys can the multiplayer or never wanted to make it in the first place this is the equivalent to Diablo 3 and could be so much more if there was multiplayer graphics for Crisp the game play is dope but I think I’ll be saving my money for fire pro wrestling at least there’s more than incentive for playing that game then there would be for raw

  • NeoVampyre

    Had my eye on this for a while as I love games like Crimson Alliance and Torchlight. Bought it today but every time I play it, the game bounces me offline saying my NAT is strict eventhough I have BT infinity and it is the only game that does it.

    • Russell Gorall

      I would do search, or hit the Xbox forums to see if it is a widespread problem. Usually a company blog would give you details like this, this one doesn’t.

    • Jeff Kehr

      Yep, bounces me offline too… every single time.

  • kingcrusher

    Not bad, I might purchase it. Big downside is no rotation on the camera angles. If there is and I’m missing where, please let me know. But the camera is my only real complaint so far. I kind of like it.

  • NeoVampyre

    The bouncing offline seems to be a global problem, their offical forums and xbox360achievements forums indicates as much. At least the games very playable and I hope they can fix it to make sure it stays online for the patch to upload.

  • Vince

    How come this doesn’t have online co-op? I woulda bought it for sure
