Not sure if anybody is interested. I am always interested in indy developers.

This one has been in alpha for a few years and goes into open BETA in a few days.

 

It may have a certain passion that the professional and stagnant diablo3 did not have.

Looks interesting and I'll have to give it a try. On my second time through with Torchlight II and itching to try something in the same vein...

Yup, playing this one off and on. (Love the skill web...definitely not a tree lol)  Also got in on the kickstarter for Grim Dawn, which is another game along these lines.  Both look like a much better job of doing what Diablo 3 tried.

Thanks for the heads-up Destraex.  I had been playing Torchlight 2, and most recently the re-release of Sacred 2 Gold on Steam (now that it doesn't have the ridiculous DRM on it anymore!) lately.  But this one (PoE) looks to have the grittier art style I prefer in it.

 

I've not kept a close eye on it's progress lately, so I'm thrilled to hear that open beta starts tomorrow.  Fun fun!

A few screenshots of my BETA access.

 

This really is diablo2 with updated graphics. I love that you can zoom right into your character.

I fear the click is addictive but I will not last long.

 

 

Just deleted them for now as the spoilers I was using seem to have stopped working.

I can make them smaller though in future.

Lmao at the dialog from the players in that first scene.


Want is the foundation of impatience, a step without thought can be a drop without end

Yeah typical online player gibberish...in just about every screenshot. It'll bring the game down.

The only stupid one I see is the jackass who specifically made the "Ihatethisf**kinggame" name to troll chat. 

 

Luckily many of those dumbass mouthy kids play first-person shooters, so it could be worse.

Also, Des when are you going to learn to CROP a picture so it doesn't take more than the screen should have?

 

Nearly every one of your screenshot threads (and I enjoy them by the way) has at least one if not all WIDE SCREEN picture shots that do not blend well with the forum thread sizes.

 

CROPPING is your friend.

I think the forum software needs to be set to allow scrolling the screen horizontally, for pics that don't fit your normal width.  Like many forums have.  You can rt-click and choose "view image" to see the whole thing anyway.

 

One thing I've not been terribly happy with is the forum software, and it's interface, here.  I suppose some of the extra hoops are to annoy spammers, but it can be a bit annoying all-around.  I can't even see some of the buttons on this page due to not having any horizontal scrolling.

How come you don't have horizontal scrolling? I have horizontal scrolling but I HATE to have to us it. lol Did you only pay for half a computer. hehe

 

What I don't have is rt-click view image now ain't that weird?

Sorry about that. It is the spoiler tags that were not working.

They seemed to work in my Rome thread.

 

I will edit them after work when i get time.
