Torchlight 2 Free Weekend

A free weekend is now underway on Steam for Torchlight 2, Runic's action/RPG sequel. According to Steam news this will run from now until Sunday at 4:00 pm EST. Those who enjoy the experience may find themselves tempted by the current sale price on the game, as it is being offered for 75% off.

In my opinion the only game that came close to diablo 2 was titan quest. Looking forward to grim dawn (since it's being designed by the titan quest devs), tempted to buy the steam early release.

Titan's quest had crappy combat, and the world building was all over the map. The consistency of TQ's world was pretty shitty but the art was gorgeous I'll give it that. The loot also sucked balls let's be honest.

The thing that made diablo a success was the action oriented combat when combined with the loot and it was basically a game that borrowed heavily from the fighting game genre without the developers knowing it. That's why developers have a such a hard time replicating the addictiveness of the original diablo. Lets not forget TQ flopped from a publisher perspective. It covered it's costs but TQ never got a sequel.

How many of us still play TQ/TL? I can go back and pickup diablo and get re-immersed if I force myself too. I can't do that with TQ or any other ARPG.
