I think anyone who loved Diablo 2 will enjoy Torchlight. About getting "old" quick... you never know. Just try the demo.

About AA in the demo, try to edit settings.txt file on appdata\roaming\runic games\torchlight, and set FSAA to 1.

So you guys are saying I will like this? Does it seem like the type game that could possibly get "old" quick, like Fate?
It depends on your personal taste. I love ARPG and this game really appeases me. Just don't start on to easy difficulty.

I think you would like it, it's very well done, but there are some differences:

1. This game doesn't have MP right now
2. Most of adventuring is done in caves, mines, ruins. Although the ruins were "outside" I guess because it was raining, it's not like Diablo II where you are roaming outside and find a dungeon cave. Of course, I haven't seen all areas yet.
3. The UI, hot keys, inventory, gems, items are all almost exactly like Diablo II. Even the music is by the same guy.

Wish it was released earlier though, with Dragon Age coming out next week, I don't know if I'll have time to play this if I buy it. Probably a later purchase for me, if DAO begins to stale.

Based on all the comments, I picked this up as well without even trying the demo.

I had to get Torchlight, regardless of how many games I have and have time to play....It was an instant "must have"

+1... I can't believe you'd even make a game like this without LAN support... that's the main attraction for me... these type of games are 10x funner as a shared experience...

On Steam page they say work on multiplayer will begin after the game launch. So they must be working on it as I'm typing this

So what kind of equipment do you guys carry? I have a wand that does 350dmg with a long long long list of enchantments(love the fact that you can enchant your current equipment). Hate that you can't save your game when you want to - hate doing mistakes(sold a bunch of emeralds when I just wanted to move them over to my pet's inventory).
