Torchlight II - Preview @ Ars Technica

Ars Technica looks at Torchlight II with input from Max Schaefer from Runic, discussing LAN play, the Berserker class and mods among things:

LAN play has been confirmed, so you'll be able to get together with a group of friends and play the game without an Internet connection. It may seem like a small thing, but LAN play is enough to make sure the game gets on the rotation of fans who get together physically to play the game. There will also be no arguments over loot during play: when a monster is destroyed, each player only sees the loot that they can pick up—items that work with their character. No more rushing for high-level items or players annoyed that they didn't get anything good during a play session.
