I don't like dungeon crawls (for sake of not breaking my mouse), but I really liked Torchlight.

I need to be picking up T2, and will also have a copy of the first outing to hand out. I would rather it go to one of you fine people than to the hounds of /r/Gaming.

Torchlight is worth getting, and this is coming from someone who's not a fan of the genre.

I've played through one, and aside from the pet inventory system I found it to be lacking. It's from a lot of the same guys who made Diablo, and that shows, but because of that I'm willing to give this game another shot. I wont be reserving it though, and will more then likely pick it up a while after it's come out probably still at full price.

One thing I was unaware of though, was Torchlight's mod community. My have to check it out to see what is around.

While D3 is still a game I enjoy a lot, I feel like TL2 is what D3 should have been. It really showcases how Blizzard kinda lost its way.

TL2 is what would have happened if D3 didn't take itself so seriously (rainbow level notwithstanding).

I'm a Diablo fanboy from way back. I was all about some TL originally because it scratched that Diablo itch while waiting for D3. I'm digging TL2 more than I did D3, and that's not even factoring in the price tag which makes the comparison embarrassing.

It really bothered me in D3 how there were some items not even worth picking up, so you'd get a drop from an enemy or a chest and it would just be a huge letdown. TL2 is pretty much the exact opposite. Everything is at least worth selling because it's easy to strap it to your pet and send him back to town. Also, it's very exciting when chests practically explode with loot. Sure, you may only be getting 100 gold, but when it's in piles of 5 and the whole screen fills up with drops, it's just more fun.

Cannon > blow dart gun

There are also some neat little tweaks to the formula like the augmentable (?) weapons. I've had this sword for a while now that will level up if I kill 10 champions with it, and I've kept it instead of switching to stronger weapons I've found just because I want to know what'll happen. I did find an augmentable cannon that I upgraded, and it wasn't *that* great, but still - it's fun. Oh yeah, protip: apparently if you use your other weapon at all when killing a champion, it doesn't work. I was running around with my cannon and got into a pack of things which included a champion, so I switched to my sword and killed him, but didn't get credit for him. I tried that a couple of times, just to be sure.

My ferret has goggles. He shoots fireballs AND iceballs and summons zombieballs.

Phase beast challenge levels are the fuckin' s**t.
