    Still using yellow markers over npc heads ...sigh,i will not play these lame hand holding designs anymore.
    Other than that,locked camera is really bad,seems to move in and out but that's it,  but it does look at least playable,i see some decent effort for a low budget game.
    I would say if there were no hand holding,i would likely give it a whirl but as is ...nope.
    You do realize that Titan's Quest is an offline hack-and-slash RPG, not an MMORPG, right?  Er, probably not, since you started off your post with "Still using..." for a game that's 11 years old.

    i was close to buying it.  i played it for hours years ago.  i even remember a guy who was so good, he could beat the game naked without dying once.  i then got into the mods they have for this game.  sooooo many mods for this game.  i wanted to do a hardcore league mode, but the game can be modded so its easy to cheat that part and reset your death count.  im probably gonna pass on it.  but if you havent enjoyed it for hours on end already years ago, its a good pick up now for sure.  now if they made a titan quest mmoarpg........well some asian company would pick it up and turn it to garbage..who knows..

    FYI if you buy the xpac you don't need to start a new character. My lowbie character talked to a vendor that had gear that was exclusive to the expac. I don't like that they put that in the base game. It's tacky. However, it did signal that my old game saves work in the patched world.

    I'm finishing a play through of Pillars of Eternity and it's as bad with "backer" this and "backer" that. It's put me off buying their expacs after this play through.

    Why does that annoy you? No backer interactions are necessary. They are either some random NPCs or Gravestones. Rather easy to spot(Gold letters).

    Exactly. I don't want to spot gold nameplate npcs that the "backers designed" that are nothing more than useless campy backstories. I kept waiting for those interactions to mean something only to find out they don't.

    Then there are nameplates of backers all through the dungeons. They advertise backer stuff on their landing page. I'm sick of it. I enjoy backing indie games but I like all that meta stuff to stay in the credits where it belongs, not all through the game world.

    Part of the reason studios went indie is so they could do stuff mainstream pubs wouldn't allow so games ended up with cookie cutter or crap systems. But replacing that with backer spam isn't better. In some ways it's worse.

    Semantics @Gorwe but whatevs. It's Friday so meh. ;)

    Yeah, whole Industries went kaput on the basis of semantics. Even a single sign(a comma or a semicolon, that kind of things).

    Just saying. /whistle

    (it feels good to be right!)
    If you say so....

    Oh come now Torval, they're just as easy to ignore as lootboxes...  ;)

    Actually THQ declared bankruptcy in December 2012 and shut down.  Some of the (now unemployed) Dev's went off and formed their own company and put out Grim Dawn. 

    2 years later in 2014 Nordic which had bought some of THQ's old assets renamed itself THQ Nordic and released Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition, and now have released a DLC to the AE version.
