...anyone can believe we're just messing around and holding off on release for arbitrary reasons...
I mean, yeah, we could just dump it out there. But you wouldn't be happy with the result, because we wouldn't.
Anyone is just sad too much in my opinion. I am not thinking that you just messing around and holding off releasing game. I know well how much work it needs to be done. It is not like a clap with hands and this will be done. It needs a time consuming work to fix or change something and make sure that works in proper way.
Do not just dump out incomplete game. I am impatient as well, because I love what you do and I can't wait for your next results. When you posted your latest news about a scale and differences between Torchlight 1 and Torchlight 2 I got even more impatient, because it seems you left a lot more effort to produce the Torchlight 2 which obviously will be much better than the Torchlight 1.
In this point it is odd to me that people start being upset, mad and even not cultured. In compare to Diablo 3; the Torchlight 2 will be done in much quicker time than the Diablo 3. I can't believe in that people just forgoting about fact; the Diablo 3 has been released over 12 years later after Diablo 2. The Torchlight 2 will be released about three years after the Torchlight 1. In my opinion, in this time scale between those two games the Torchlight 2 is even more than equal to Diablo 3. Torchlight 2 will be much better than Diablo 3. Yeah, we could say that the Diablo 3 is may better with some points, but thats in fact scales to the budget and to how much company will spent for extra help. I appreciate that Runic is independent company and do not waste money for external organisation just to produce better code, animation and so on. Also, they go their own graphic engine which I really love.
What Runic needs to get their sh!t togehter and deliver what is CLEARLY a simplistic realtime rogulike? That Travis has done BEFORE?? I'll admit to confusion otgherwise, bujt this is just BS dragging on release dates like they are, and I'm damned well saddened that I bit on their pre-order only to be continuously phailed.
I think John is in fact teenager who suppose to come back to school to learn proper grammar. In just this first stupid sententence I have counted about 6 spelling errors. I would not accept fact that someone write fast, because I am writing fast and I do not make so much errors like you... In addition, your bullshit is not encouraging. You and couple people more need to understand that creating game is not like a drawing on a paper and needs a lot of time to be done. I would suggest to read some books or even articles in web about game productions before you next time dump another bullshit here.
PS: Good job Travis and I hope your wife haven't "killed" you when you told her about moving date of your anniversary
