Either you're full of crap, or you're extraordinarily impatient and spend more time browsing the auction house rather than actually playing the game.
Look, people might complain that Diablo 3 is too stingy, but Torchlight 2 is overly generous, like an all-you-can-eat dessert bar. It's fun at first, but it very quickly becomes too much of a good thing and you quickly burn out on it. Personally, I prefer Diablo 3 because getting that great drop remains an exciting experience even after a couple hundred hours of play.
I have played TL and I do think that it's a pretty good game. The comparisons to d3 that ppl are making at this point are completely ridiculous though. Most ppl posting here have probably played <10h of TL. Of course you find interesting items, upgrades, new awesome skills, new areas, new mob types, new bosses, new gems, new enchanters... all the time. You also found a ton of new fun stuff during your first 10h of d3.
The problem with d3 is that by now most ppl have gotten close to BiS gear, have optimized their builds and farming routes, have figured out what items might be worth something and what's not worth picking up and have done so many act3 runs that they can run through most areas with their eyes closed. Of course at that point the game isn't as exciting as during your first 10h of gameplay.
Im so sick of people bagging out games being "cartoonish". You play computer games! You play female elves and talking cows and goblins! Soon pandas!

09/24/2012 12:27 PMPosted by Sparkzenif you manage to find the really unfun, underpowered build (there is bound to be one), it kind of sucks to be stuck with it. The bad thing is the mechanics of the game are not that transparent, at least to me, so the chances of that happening are worrisome.
09/24/2012 12:27 PMPosted by SaucerorHey guys, I have a lv19 embermage in Torchlight 2 and apparently I can just use a lv1 active spell with maxed passives to beat the game. In the hardest difficulty. :3

Exactly my point. I tend to be a huge perfectionist when it comes to character optimization so that I have actually not spent a single skill points until level ~30 , just because I wanted to figure out a bit how the game works before making any permanent decisions.

TL2 is fantastice. D3 can't hold a candle to it.
On combat it most certainly can. In fact, TL2 can't hold a candle to D3 in that regard.
Don't wax poetic about something that's clearly flawed. People here are so jaded by item drops, they're praising TL2 for that one single aspect over D3 when in fact TL2 has glaring issues with combat and overall polish.
