I've played the TL2 beta and I have to say, it's a VERY fun game. I'd even say it's more fun to play than D3, depending on your playstyle.
I also didn't enjoy the first Torchlight that much except as a time waster on my laptop. But they've really improved the sequel. No archaic DRM like D3 (don't give me that "it's a multiplayer game" crap). Also, your character feels a lot more unique in multiplayer. There's some customization to your toon, plus you can use any weapon/gear you want if your stats fit. There's only 4 classes, but with the talent trees, there's a lot more room for making a unique character. You also look a lot more unique as you gear up instead of looking like every other Monk/Barbarian/etc. at your level.
The graphics are very nice and the environments are very cool. It's cartoony, but like WoW, it pushes that graphic style to the limits. That said, D3 definitely has benefited from the huge Blizzard-Activision coffers. D3 is a gorgeous game and is well polished. But you really should try out TL2, especially at 1/3 the price of D3!
i haven't played it yet, i wanna know if it's actually challenging though? i'm not fond of games you can just breeze through easily

I just noticed that several previous Torchlight 2 threads were deleted. Not sure why.
