If you still need the first one before the end of the first week of September, I'll toss you a copy on Steam. It DESERVES your playtime.
Someone once told me that Torchlight is a game where you "go into a mine, collect gold, give it to your dog, then you move deeper into the mine, forever", and that is why I never even bothered to find out what it was about or get it. I actually only found out what it's like because of that Music Clip Game 3 thread by ceemdee ("hey, this sounds like Uelmen, I love Uelmen. it IS Uelmen!").
Thank you for the kind offer, but I'll pass as I can afford it myself. :)
You may be interested to know that the reason I sort of lost interest in Diablo 3 initially was that I didn't like the classes (or how they seemed)... and I hated how the sorceress in D2 didn't have any pants. This ember lady has pants! It's great.
