Today it's not judgment day, Diablo 3 servers will not shutdown overnight because of a mass migration of players.
Is Diabo 3 disappointing under many POVs? Yes it is.
Is TL2 better? Let's play it at least 100 hours before jumping to conclusions.

If it's anything like the first game, most people will be done with it long before they hit the 100-hour mark. I barely managed 20-hours myself. Fun game, but it didn't have the replay value or longevity of a Diablo game.

Considering that Runic themselves said there is no long term plans for the game, and they are leaving it up to modders (and the dev toolkit won't be out for at least a month yet), I think people are going to be severely disappointed after investing similar amounts of time into TL2.
Just let them overhype it for themselves. It will be adorable.

Well, Torchlight II's Developer Runic's website has crashed under the pressure. Having just spent three straight hours enjoying my pre-ordered copy, I can understand why.
Torchlight II is a !@#$ing masterpiece of an APRG.
Diablo III isn't just disappointing - it's straight up plain bad.
The only aspects of Diablo III that are any good are those that were directly copied from it's predecessor. Everything Blizzard changed, added or removed makes the game worse. From the lack of character customisation, to the terrible story, unsuitable music and highly questionable art style, to the Online Only DRM and Real Money Auction House, Diablo III is simply poorly made.
Torchlight II is faster, more fun, with better music - though some might not like the art style, the gameplay is simply unmatched. Buy it now.
