After playing Torchlight a year ago Runic Games released its sequel Torchlight 2 and it was released on September 20, 2012 for Windows. I had just bought it and Installed it right away in my PC and Notebook. Another action RPG games for me and my brother after wandering the land of Skyrim which we spend both playing in our free time. This game resembles our all time favorite diablo which released also its third sequel diablo 3. Diablo 3 can be played online but I'm not sure if it can be played offline like Torchlight. TL2 can be played online by registering to their site for an account and also can be played offline either single player or multiplayer using your Local Area Network (LAN).
The game support Duel System or PVP so I'm very to have this game and played with brother and friends unlike Diablo 3. I read about the pvp mode and I found out how to provoke a duel in game by pressing "ENTER" then the message box or chat box will pop up then type "/PVP". Many says that dueling system here was boring due to imbalance Damage Inflicted by each player. Maybe Runic Games will create a patch for that, (I hope so..)
My first time running this game was very confusing, because I can't connect the game to another computer even I setup our Local Area Network (LAN) correctly. We don't have hub, switch or a router here therefore I should configure our connection using Peer to Peer with cross over cable. Luckily I managed to answer this question.
