          I missed it? This is horseshit. They probably all went to Diablo III fangays who won't use them.

                      Seriously. I don't need a free copy of Torchlight. If people are buying Torchlight 2, it's because they liked the first one; otherwise, they'd be getting Diablo III

                        yea i got a beta key too but i'm too deep into diablo 3 to care much about torchlight 2 right now. if anyone wants it, just let me know. i should mention this... the email i got says that the beta is already activated on my runic account, but then they give a key along with the email too. so i'm not really sure if the key will work for someone else's account.

                            have you played diablo 3 at all? im curious to hear an opinion from someone who played both but isn't hugely biased towards one.

                              Have the beta ready to play, but haven't played the diablo 3 beta or game, so can't compare.

                              There is a rather nice TL2 beta review on the runic games fansite (beware massive amounts of text).

                              Althought the name suggests otherwise it is a rather nice review which compares it to diablo 3 here and there in a rather unbiased way (basically, TL 2 gameplay is great but it doesn't have the mood and athmosphere of diablo 3 and the storytelling is rather poor comparing to diablo 3)

                                    I had no problems whatsoever with the registration, you must have been unlucky.

                                    Enjoying the beta, does look though that similar to Torchlight 1 , normal difficulty is actually super easy. Not sure if one can change the difficulty on the fly this time (without mods)

                                      Torchlight didn't look bad. There are alot of design changes which are pretty good ideas. Except summonables don't jump through transitions any more, which is lame.

                                      Have you tried Engineer? Gun bot is going to get the hell nerfed out of it.

                                        Have to say I like D3 better but its also $60 compared to $20. I will probably pickup torchlght 2 though for a $20.

                                          Exactly. Diablo III is for people who like Diablo. Torchlight 2 is for people who like good action RPGs for reasonable prices.

                                            Darkspore was a more indepth ARPG than torchlight.

                                            Torchlight was a good time waster for the price but it was no top notch arpg, not by a long shot.

                                            You do a lot of bitching about games that you've never played, btw.

                                              I would love to pay $60 for a game that I can only play when Blizzard's server are working, but I have to burn at least $60 in 1 dollar bills a month to keep away aliens.

                                                You wouldn't have bought it anyways. You would have found some other excuse to complain.

                                                  I don't have the nostalgic interest in Diablo to beg Blizzard to bend me over a barrel, thanks. I'll stick with Torchlight and save $40.

                                                    You act as if the two games are comparable having never played either.

                                                        Yup, and the other is a low budget title developed in just over a year by a small team.

                                                          Oh right, to be a legit title it has to be priced arbitrarily high out of the average game title range and take an arbitrarily long time to make.
                                                          Must mean Diablo II was just an overpriced trash title because it took basically the same amount of time after Diablo as Torchlight II is taking after Torchlight.

                                                          Are the Blizzard servers down again so the only thing you have to do is go around on forums and put down other ARPGs to convince yourself that Diablo was worth it?

                                                              Torchlight was a mediocre arpg. I'm sure that torchlight 2 will be a good game for the price but it has a long way to go live up to the better ARPGs on the market. You know that I'm right.

                                                                      Surprisingly little and a lot.

                                                                      Frankly, the game feels like Torchlight 1 with multiplayer. Sadly, with a poorer skill system. They did make a few changes which have already been mentioned, but beyond that, it's really just an extension of what Torchlight 1 had.

                                                                      The skills, frankly, seem extremely poorly done. For example, one of the Embermage skills gives you X damage (based on your level) of every elemental type, plus a 10% chance of doing elemental DoTs. That's with 1 point in it. If you put a second point in, the skill does X damage (based on your level), plus an 11% chance of doing DoTs. So for 1 skill point, you get a whole extra 1% chance of DoTs. And there are quite a few skills where you get similar poor returns for point increases.

                                                                      Then there's another skill, forget what it's called, that does a really short range "stream" attack. Fine, except it's also got a knockback to it. So what you end up doing is hitting a mob with it, who's then pushed out range, causing you to stop attacking, move closer, then try and resume doing damage. It's a real pain in the ass.

                                                                      Frankly, the beta has felt like a letdown. I was hoping they'd take Torchlight 1 and really polish it, but it doesn't feel like that's what they've done.

Other than the Diablo plotline (really, they couldn't come up with something better than the "hero from the first one is now the villain in the second" plotline?), I could be playing a continuation of the first game, and I wouldn't have noticed. I mean, yeah, a few of the changes are ok - the ability of your pet to buy potions and stuff is decent. But I was expecting Diablo 1 -> 2 type changes, rather than L4D 1 -> 2 changes.
