Default Torchlight [diablo clone]

http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/69637

Quote:
Scheduled for a fall release, Torchlight is a boldly styled action RPG with tons of loot and randomly generated dungeons, but as you'll see, players can also easily modify the game to suit their interests. Runic Games President and Project Manager Travis Baldree describes the background of the game and reveals two of the game's three classes - the melee powerhouse Destroyer and the magic-wielding Alchemist. We'll watch as Travis shows the editor in action, and later Travis tells us how Torchlight the action RPG will transition into Torchlight the MMORPG.
Interesting and cartoonish.

looks cool, very similar to mythos in style, classes seem changed. Mythos was really good if you ask me, definitely had the diablo feel and I enjoyed it more than Hellgate. Price point seems pretty good and I like these sorts of loot gathering action rpg games. Based on what they were doing with mythos I'll be getting this one.

Matt Uelmen who worked in Blizzard is now a sound designer in Runic games. This is great!

Would you stop calling action RPGs 'diablo clones'? Diablo 1/2 have been passed and surpassed long time ago, hack and slash is a genre and not every game is a 'diablo clone'.

They are calling it a diablo clone because thats what it is. It's not an action rpg alone, look at the gameplay and how it looks... it looks like diablo in another skin. If it were playing like zelda behind the back view it wouldn't be a diablo clone but everything about it looks like they copy and pasted from diablo.
