Off to GenCon 2010 and Torchlight 2: calm down people

But before I go.

People...calm down about Torchlight 2. Yeah yeah Torchlight 1 was fun and all that but only because we haven't had a Diablo 2 fix in so long.

Suggestion? Reload Diablo 2 and shut up. Then sit back and wait for Diablo 3 to break all the sales records and awards that Starcraft 2 and Diablo 2 got.

Jesus...one new game "announced" and already bloggers everywhere are jumping on the anti Blizzard bandwagon. Give it a rest.

Torchlight 1 was restricted, boring and bland. A pure Diablo 1 clone that did not even step outside the pretense it was totally ripping it off. Got bored with it as it only made me want to play Diablo 2 again. That jungle level in Torchlight with the blowdart guys? Guess what...ITS ALREADY IN DIABLO 2 yet more vast and done much better. And the graphics of Torchlight and camera control SUCKED. I also don't need cute anime cats and dogs to carry my crap back to town. Save that shit for Free Realms.

Before you post stupid things like "I would much rather pay for Torchlight 2 than Diablo 3" take a common sense pill for the love of God. Every time a Blizzard clone game comes out people shit and cry over their soapboxes then Blizzard releases the sequel to the game that was cloned and it demolishes everything published before it. Yet somehow bloggers and their ilk get off on ripping Blizzard and having their faithful followers agree with them and make asinine comments that have NO firm backing or solitary single dose of common sense whatsoever. Torchlight 2 will be "neat" but it will be no where NEAR the insane polish, gameplay, look, depth and overall content that Diablo 3 will have.

Hudson out.

Stay tuned for convention updates.
