    Ah, I'm a very happy chappy now. If they keep this pace up they might knock out a third installment before we see Diablo III.

    I think is knock off.

    Nevertheless I think is great, is like in Diablo, you had only a dungeon, in the two you have forest and elses.

    Will there be a TLOD - Torchlight Lord of Destroyer.

    So it's basically following the pattern from Diablo to Diablo II. "From that moment we travelled together East... Always into the East..."

    I think you meant "Lord of Destruction". AKA Baal.

    I was drawn to this article because i thought it was some news about "Rune" the game. The best multiplayer melee game ever.

    Yes, I AM sleepy!

    But torch light is cool too!

    I never found the replay value in this....once I'd completed it I never found the urge to play through again. It was pretty much level up one skill, pick a big weapon and just use that for the rest of the game.

    I tell you wat. This was an awesome singleolayer game for me to bash while I was on deployment on a navy aircraft carrier, wish it had multiplayer but looks. Like the second installment will solve that. I'm gonna buy this for shure.

    "A free matchmaking peer-to-peer service"

    This sounds dangerously like a decentralized model where maphacks and dupes will run rampant....

    First game was an absolutely enormous rip-off of Diablo. Even some of the sounds were the same and the music was similar.

    That said, it did have an appealing visual style and I enjoyed playing through the game. All though I found it had no reply value, unlike Diablo.

    Will probably give this one a miss though. Diablo 3 is on the way already. No need to waste time on a pretty clone.

    They better not be greedy and ask for more than 20$ like the original game was or else it won't sell at all. The price was the biggest reason why so many people bought the game.

    I really enjoyed the first but for some reason I doubt I'll be interested in playing the second one.
