Wow, I can't believe Torchlight beat out Oblivion. I'm definitely getting it! I hope Oblivion gets a sale soon though.

Is there any reason to get Torchlight 1 here instead of buying Torchlight 2 and getting both games?

Very close! It's probably the closest vote so far on Summer Sale. 1% win!

Sweeet, buying it.

Well crap, was looking forward toward getting Oblivion, and possibly Morrowind on sale. Oh well, saves me some money. Already have Torchlight, didn't care for it too much.

All sales posted keep ending up a deal at some point.

Steam is not likely to negotiate a sales price with the companies and then not actually use them.

The majority of vote options have been flash deals or daily deals as well.

If you intend to pre-order Torchlight 2 there is no point in buying Torchlight 1.

How do you figure?


It's been on sale in pretty much every Steam sale ever, including $4.99 for GOTY in the Thanksgiving and Winter sales.

Really bummed Oblivion didn't win :(

I guess only if you've never played Torchlight you could get it now for cheap and then wait for a price drop on Torchlight II if you end up liking it. But if you know you'll like the game you should just preorder Torchlight II.

I'm pleased for the victors but I very much hope those who were waivering on Tourchlight buy it as I must do with my Oblivion for your win.

I know it's likely too that a lot more people have Obliv so that weighed in but my gut says there was some ballot stuffing or other recount silliness.

Every community vote loser has returned as a flash or daily deal. Those votes are just for 'when' those games will go on sale.

CheapyD DLC is free I believe. No extra DLC purchase required.


Ah I think you're right, it doesn't require the DLC. Got confused because every source kept saying, "Genkibowl VII DLC + CheapyD compatibility patch."

There's a Torchlight demo, I liked it so much that I pre-ordered T2 and got the T1 bonus. The 4pack was only $15 each. Oh yeah and your demo progress carries through to the full game, that was cool cause I put like 2-3 hrs into the demo.

Just cause you see everyone posting here wanted obliv doesn't mean everyone on steam wants it.... It lose deal with it. All these games will be either a daily sale/flash sale because it has happened with all the games on vote so far(close to it.)

No need to be bummed. Oblivion will hit a daily or flash sale some point this sale.

I've had Torchlight at the front of my backlog for awhile now, but havent fired it up because I'm worried about how much time I'll sink in it. For those that have played it how much time is the campaign? I put over 100+ hours into Titan Quest and I'm afraid I'll lose myself like that in Torchlight.

I'd probably pre-order Torchlight II, but the Mac version will be released after the PC one is launched, and there's no official date (yet). By the time the Mac version is available (maybe before Christmas?) it might have some sort of deal?

Or maybe not? Any feedback on this?

Wow.

Seriously? You can just pre-order Torchlight 2 and get Torchlight 1 for free.

Thanks for that one, Steam community. I was really rooting for Oblivion GOTY Extended for 75% off.

Not sure how long one playthrough of Torchlight is but I put a LOT of time into Titan Quest but only 11 hours in TL. TL just didn't have that "pull" that TQ and D2 had for me. Hard to pin down exactly what those 2 games had that TL didn't but I just never really felt the urge to keep playing TL. Hopefully that will change with TL2.

You can't cancel a pre order can you?

You normally can by submitting a ticket to Steam support but it might be tough if a pre-order comes with a free game as a bonus and you've already played that game.

Yes, you can. Just send an e-mail to Steam support and they'll most likely cancel the order since it hasn't been released yet. Here's a Steam forums topic on it: http://forums.steamp...d.php?t=1117862

But seriously, any pre-order of Torchlight 2 comes with the first game. For $20 ($15 in a group buy) you could have the original plus a game that hasn't been released yet. I don't think you'll be able to get them both for much less than that during the Winter sale when T2 has already been released, and that's five months away.
