Just recently, Torchlight 2 received a major patch with some added content, support for the Steam workshop and the in house game editor known as GUTS. If you are looking to play a Diablo style ARPG that is fun and doesn't require a grind I highly recommend you check it out. Uniques/Legendary gear drop very generously compared to other games in the ARPG genre. Great solution for those of us with a life - as in working a professional job 40+ hours and juggling the wife (or husband) & kids (if you have any!)
Check it out on Steam!

PoE is a great game and a hell of an effort. However, after spending $30 on PoE back in Jan and now struggling to get the motivation to log in much anymore, I have to suggest TL2. A 30 min session will guarantee you an upgrade (or multiple upgrades!). Hardcore is hardcore - you die and your character is GONE! Similar map system for the end game.
I'll be around for sure and am excited for what PoE will be at release, however I feel the game in it's current state is quickly losing its luster for me. The giant skill forest and spammy trade channel has just become too much for me I guess. I have free time to game despite my RL commitments, but I don't have nearly enough time to grind up the necessary currency for decent gear and high quality skill gems.
