    Looking for a new game

    Meeting the conditions of:
    Experience-bar-ish progress system
    Containing a storyline
    Being possible to play together over teh intahwebz

    Something in the lines of Diablo II or WoW (not being them ofcourse, we've played them a little too much recently so we're searching for a game to fill out the time till Cataclysm/Diablo III is out.

    Any suggestions very much appreciated

    btw we've tried most of those pay-2-play MMOs, Warhammer being the one closest to something which we find entertaining, while AoC, Aion etc. failed miserably.

    I recommend Borderlands. When server is down or I just can't get the energy to log into WoW, I'll fire this up. It gets right what Hellgate:London messed up, a solid FPS/RPG with great online play. Plus there is such a variety of weapons you can play with.

    Need more information:

    PC or Console game?

    If console, I would wait for Red Dead Redemption.
    Leveling experience in a massive online game environment that is the same size and looks as the Single Player environment.

    If PC:
    Well, to be honest, there is nothing comparable to WoW. You have Aion, Warhammer and all kind of that kind. However, non of them has that certain "feeling" WoW has

    Borderlands is really good for what you want, especially if you have a few friends to play with. For PC, i didn't find THAT many public games later on, but you could just create a game and see if someone joins in. But if you are playing the game with 2-3 friends, talking over vent, it is sooo much fun.

    Heck, I played through the game mostly single player, and I still had a blast.

    If you want to forego the multiplayer part, Just Cause 2 was a good timesink. I completed the game in some 20 hours, and although some missions are repetative in this massive, massive sandbox, it was for the most part an enjoyable experience. I only had 30% completion, but upgrading every weapon and vehicle, finding every upgrade crate, doing every race, visiting every landmark and so on is inhuman.

    For me, in 1 day and 11 hours, I will be playing Splinter Cell: Conviction

    If you're willing to lose the Online Aspect of what you said. Try Dragonage Orgins.

    Torchlight is a diablo-ish game. It's a shame it's not multiplayer though.
