    Check this game out guys.

    It was made by a good majority of the guys who made up Blizzard North. They worked on Diablo I, Diablo II, Mythos, and Fate.

    I've been watching a few people play it on gaming streams (since it isn't out yet) and for a 20 dollar price take it looks to really make an impact.

    It borrows very heavily from the new Diablo III UI style. Looks to be a great single player experience, much better than Titan Quest or Sacred two...and those games were 50-60 dollar titles.

    No they were working on a separate project called Mythos running their horrible network code called "pingo."

    None of the dev's from Torchlight got to work on Hellgate London.

    Been watching some video streams, look fantastic. Each class (3 classees) has about 30 skills. Also, in about 18 months they are going to be turning this singe player experience into a full fledge MMO. Those who purchase the single player game will get the MMO upgrade for free (pending monthly fee's of course or some kind of free to play mechanic).

    17.99 on steam, I was very interested and purchased...it will be fun.

    The class skills are very fun to use and extremely rewarding, a lot of Diablo III style went into this.

    IN SON. Will be the perfect time killer while deployed.

    Awesome visuals.
    Diablo-style gameplay.
    Single player (Can only get online about once every 3 days)

    :bowdown:

    Will probably drop HoN since that requires you to be online to play.

    This looks sickeningly close to an upgraded version of Dungeon Runners :eek3:

    I've always been a fan of the Blizzard North crew. Will probably check out this game as well.

    Looks really nice. Seems like it borrows heavily from WoW's art style, but that's a good thing.

    Looks interesting, but without any sort of multiplayer, I probably won't pick it up. :hs:

    apparently in the near future they're taking this game and turning it into an MMO. :dunno:
