Quote of the Day

“A gamer named TipToe is a fan of the upcoming (and, quite frankly, extremely promising) action RPG made by Runic Games, Torchlight.  Due to a medical condition, she can’t play any games with a camera shake feature.  She asked a question about this on the Torchlight forums.  A Runic developer read her post, and added an option to turn camera shake off, just for her.  Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is customer service.  Wowza.”

    impressive, just impressive. and it really dont look like guys reacted for a PR, it looked like one of the devs went just like – hey, why not? it might be like 15-30 minutes of coding.

    respect to the guys, i will definitely try to keep my eyes on the game now.

    Uh… there’s a “medical condition” preventing people from playing games with “camera shake?”

    M’kay…

    “I don’t like when it does that, it makes me nauseous” isn’t quite the same thing as a “medical condition.”

    Just for her? So what? It checks IP address or something so if you or I click it, nothing happens??

    Yeah, I can’t resist being a smartass. I’d already planned to pick this up (I loved Mythos and Diablo) but this makes me feel even better about my purchase. Thanks for sharing!

    Well, that’s awesome enough to seal the deal on me buying it. Just put in my prepurchase on steam. 😛

    Wow. I didn’t think I could love Torchlight any more than I already did… but wow…
