This is made all the more impressive knowing what can happen when your game doesn't live up to expectations.
I was going to pass on this due to feeling action-RPG'd out right now, but I've encountered increasingly positive buzz surrounding Path of Exile as of late. I'd imagine some of you can attest to that. It'll be that darned skill tree that does me in -- I just know it.
