As mentioned last week, the proper Diablo Holiday will be upon us this Saturday. I talk of course of Halloween! A time to rejoice and scare one another as well as stuffing your face with sweets.

    This new game called Torchlight managed to get released just before Halloween and the question is really if the game will rock, or perhaps plummet like another game that tried to get released in time for Halloween in 2007 (*cough* Hellgate: London *cough*). There has been a lot of discussion about it in the community in the last few weeks.

    Before continuing on to the ins and outs of the Diablo forums, I’d like to remind fans (and perhaps introduce some) to the Price Lists And Item Guides in the Diablo 2 forum. krischan has gathered several interesting guides for anyone interested in buying or selling on the Battle.net realms containing loads of practical reading for anyone who play Diablo II while waiting for the sequel. Well worth to check out.

    With that out of the way, here’s what’s going on in the Diablo forums:

    Torchlight Extravaganza

    • It’s not just the massive “torchlight” thread by isak viking with 18 pages of replies that has been discussing the new RPG made by old Diablo 1 & Diablo 2 developers: The community is buzzing about it and I have personally had many friends buy it and continuing to yap away about it. One funny detail is that Flux has had a honourable mention in the game, much like his Diablo 2 mercenary.

      dawgma thinks Torchlight is basically a Diablo 3 Demo: a claim both supported and rejected by other forum members. The question is really, will YOU buy Torchlight? If you need help to make up your mind, Flux has gathered some Torchlight news and reviews.

    Auto-Pickup Items

    • Since this topic was mentioned by Bashiok two weeks ago, there has been some discussion about it, including this thread by Sakris.

    Area 85 tournament – results

    • The results of probably ~900 hours of combined effort from SPF’ers, bassano presents the findings.

    Star Trek Mafia Forum Game

    • Masterful, misinterpreted, mindful moderator Gorny is back with a mischievous new forum game. In his own words: “Nothing short of organized chaos. With a Star Trek theme.” Apparently. Well worth checking out.

    Thanks everyone for reporting on interesting threads. That’s all for now, and remember to continue to send cool/fun/interesting/sad forum links to !
