    Um.. No. The passive skill tree does NOT allow one to learn any ability. Considering that there are over a thousand nubs on the skill tree and the level cap is currently 111. At most, as it stands, you will only be able to see a fraction of the skill tree. Still an awesome diablo clone though.

    Never played diablo but this sounds pretty fun, might give it a shot especially since it's free.

    Path of Exile makes up for and then exceeds the mess that is "Diablo" 3

    I thought Torchlight II was the Diablo II sequel I always wanted...

    Been playing it just now since open beta hit. It's really interesting. Wasn't sure about the visuals at a glance but playing for a couple of hours it actually looks lovely, visual effects are beautiful. Lot of really interesting design decisions, as SirNinja mentioned. Not having gold in the traditional sense feels very unusual but I think they've made it work really well from what I've seen so far. The skill gems are a great idea, and I love the Skill tree (which is somewhat reminiscent of FFX's sphere grid). The small inventory is a little hampering (especially as there doesn't appear to be an option to rotate your items), but I guess it means you really have to think about how much your time is worth and whether taking that extra bow back to town is a good use of that time. I'll definitely be back for more tomorrow.

    Been playing this for a while when it was in closed beta. You can tell this is a game made by (and for) fans of Diablo II, and it's also got a huge amount of original, ingenious concepts as well. I would never have thought that removing gold altogether would be such a great idea, but it is. Same with putting unique abilities on things like potion flasks, or having skills influenced by socketable gems that you can level up. Diablo III's flaws were never so evident as they are when playing this game. Here at last are are the meaningful character-customization options we wanted, the graphics and art style we were looking for, the gameplay and combat we always had in mind, and even plenty of things we never even knew we'd love. And you'll never have to spend a dime on it.
