Out of the Blue

Today is Memorial Day here in the U.S., commemorating the sacrifices made by soldiers and their families. This is a solemn occasion, which will not benefit from any of my typical attempts at glibness.

I put it to you all that that "clever" dog just tried all possible actions involving those drawers until finally one permutation got him up on top! A cat would have been on top of there in seconds.

BTW I've finally been able to play the Torchlight 2 beta. I am loving it, it really does trigger the Diablo nostalgia. I'm not as bothered by the cartoon style graphics as I thought I might be and the main action is amazing! I just played up to general grell with a bow outlander and have had a blast. The action is really polished and some of the creatures and magic attacks are very well conceived! I'm playing on Veteran and there is not a problem with being to easy at all. I managed to kill Grell without dying but I managed a prolonged state of "oh shit oh shit" for about 5 minutes! I died just the once, opening two trapped chests side by side when on less than half health...

While the game seems promising, I find the skill tree very boring. I believe they're working on changing it, but I'm concerned that they aren't planning additional beta time to test those changes.
