i get a feeling that if TL2 release the same day as D3, it will affect D3's first week sell more than we can imagine
if guess even crazier, after some genius made the mod of entire D3 on TL2, D3 will have little survival place left
Look..I love Runic, I'm a huge fan, most folks know this. Even so, come on. Be realistic here. If someone made a mod of Diablo III in Torchlight II, it would take about as long to make as Diablo III did for it to be any good. Nobodys going to make that mod, and if they DO make a D3 mod, it will probably be fun and amusing but it's not going to be a threat to Blizzard.
Torchlight II wouldn't have much affect on Diablo III. There are way more Diablo fans than there are Torchlight fans. Torchlight is still the new kid on the block. Diablo III has years and years of gameplay and nostalgia behind it, and tens of millions of people waiting to get it.
The reality is, both games are going to comfortably coexist, lots of people are going to play both and they're both going to be fun. You don't 'have' to be a fan of one or the other. You don't 'have' to pick a side. You can like both-like I do-and it's ok. If you don't like Blizzard, that's fine too, but that doesn't mean you have to partake in all the hyperbole.
