cool demo but this would've been an absolute blast with co-op. As a fan of Diablo 2, this game shows that a Diablo clone could work on console. Add online capability and you got yourself a must have.

Meh...Couldn't actually care less about co-op. Actually glad, for once, I don't have to have game content that's useless.

Torchlight crashed my xbox...there was just too many things going on at once with all the multiple spell effects, minions, and monsters...plus the waterfall background froze me up twice. I guess I won't gather up the masses then spam stunning AoE's on them for quick and easy xp anymore.

Still...hours and hours of mindless grinding fun. x3

Give your pet Troll (Dervish). It's mighty.

Played the demo and wound up buying it. I think the controls are much much better than PC, but inventory management is a little overwhelming. It's also a little hard for me to settle on a view, close up is good for certain things, but winds up being way too close for other things.

The text is pretty small, I could see some people having issues with it.

Anybody else having problems with the shared stash? My entire inventory just disappeared from there. And yes, the SHARED stash, not the regular one.

I'm pretty sure it occurred when I made a new character, cause I remember the items still being there when I was playing with just one. Tried to switch items without leaving the game and it worked fine, haven't tried exiting to dashboard with the new tactic yet (that's what I did originally, so I'm assuming leaving to menu, then to dashboard causes the erasure).

Anyone else not able to do a few of the beginning quests, specifically, killing someone on the third level of the mines. I went through the entire third floor of the mines and there was no one to kill by the name asked. Then I was asked to find an ember on the fiften floor that does not exist either, I have been through several times.

According to their support forums, it is a known issue to be fixed.

I guess the best thing to do is stash extra items in the normal stash in the center of the town.

Ah ok thanks ^_^. But that workaround seems weird. You're still making a new character, which would wipe the stash. Frisky's idea seems to work though, so coolio ^_^

Good hopefully the frame rate issue is fixed. I didn't even notice the missing voice over from chapter interludes lol... looking forward to that patch/update, but seeing as how TDU2 just got the patch today from MS I know It's going to be awhile before we see it.

I'm getting this issue from the list of known issues:

Recovering a gem causes crash - This issue will be resolved in the next title update.

Cause: Item was in pet inventory when trying to recover. Workaround: Move item to character inventory before attempting to recover.

I'm glad that it'll be fixed.

I'm still pissed that several of the quests I try to do seem impossible. I go through whatever area I am told but cannot find any item or person to kill, whichever it is. Irritating as hell

I've been going on the endless dungeon now. I heard level 33 fame is needed for the fame achievement... gonna be awhile.

Edit: Yeap It's fame level 33. Took me about 18 hours playtime to get all the achievements.

If I abandon a quest that seems to be impossible or the item/enemy is missing and restart the quest, it seems to work. Not sure if anyone else is having this issue?:applause:

Torchlight seems to have done well on XBLA:

Runic Games announced today that last week's launch day of Torchlight's solid, gamepad-friendly Xbox Live Arcade port, was the company's "best sale day in its history."

"We're very excited to bring Torchlight to the 360, and have been really gratified by the positive reaction," said President Travis Baldree. "It's affirming to know that console players love this genre as much as we do. We think the experience translates pretty well to the couch."

yeah i've noticed that quests have dissappeared and also i'd get the "cracked cole thing" and go on to the next level down the stairs... finish that floor, decide to go back to town... and my quest was not completed. annoying.

I know if you sell the quest item you have to re-do the level and get the item again. Was a bit annoying that u could even sell quest items.

Anyways awesome game. I'd imagine they are working on TL2 for consoles now after those sales.

think they did achievements perfect for this, by the 10-12 hour mark it took to get 200 I was about ready to be done with the game

that being said, it was fun.

I love the video, and the PC game. However, I see the 1200 point amount and then I am instantly down trodden. I know this is about 15 dollars but 1,200 points registers as a lot in my mind. I see 800 or 400 and I am okay. I am downloading it right now though. :D

Grabbed it when it was on sale a while ago on Steam. It's a great little dungeon crawler so yeah I picked it up again on the 360 mainly to support the devs and to have it on my 360 lol. Last time I played I was a warrior so on the 360 I tried out a trap/hunter character. Flame trap and ricochet kick ass! I would have liked to be able to get two more four button slots since you already get one by hitting down on the d-pad-- why not add two more with the left and right direction on the d-pad!?

...anyone retire their character and heirloom something only to have the heirloom have what I consider a gamebreaking enchantment? My buddy heirloomed a ring and it has 3500 hps on it. It's not a hack either. My heirloom, while awesome is mainly a spread of bonuses across the board.

...but 3500 hps? zomgwtfbbqsauce. his ring has more hps than my 50th lvl alchemist.

Had to download an update today, though I don't know if it's the big patch that fixes most of the issues or not.

Edit: Doesn't appear that it does since I just got the recover gems from the pet bag freeze.

Watching my 4 year old do a speed run through Torchlight is torture. No OCD picking up every piece of loot. I can hardly watch. He is liking it though.

I've played for a couple hours so far and I'm enjoying it, but one thing's bugging me. I'm picking up every piece of loot, constantly maxing out my and my pet's inventory, and I feel like I'm spending more time sorting through all the crap just to find the decent stuff than I'm spending actually playing the game. I'm new the genre so this might just come with the territory, but am I doing it wrong?

When you max out your pet's inventory...send it back to town to sell it and it'll bring back gold. You can easily spend a ton of gold through enchanting and gambling. You can also transmute 4 like color pieces of equipment (not white/mundane) and it'll transmute it into a gem. The higher quality of the item the greater the chance the gem will be of higher grade as well.

There will come a point when you'll just instinctively pass equipment off to your pet and send it because you won't need to sort...as whatever you're wearing will most likely be superior to what you loot. Just be on the look out of purple set items and gold uniques. (even though it's possible to find rare blues that will out perform uniques and set items easily).

Part of the draw to Torchlight is the loot, it's one of the reason why Diablo X was so addicting, Titan Quest, and even Borderlands. You're sorting through lewts hoping to find something better...and when you do you feel a small sense of accomplishment.

Immediately ditch everything that isn't purple or gold. That should make it a lot easier/quicker.

Inventory management is a big key to old school RPG dungeon crawlers like Diablo. It was part of the genre while most RPGs today cut down on that tedious task. For Torchlight I kind of like looking through my gear but if it wasn't in the game I would be happy all the same.
