I think it's a great game so far.
I also agree with you about Borderlands and Torchlight. Torchlight also has a fairly large modding community. You can add classes, dungeons/quests, new pets, new monsters, and there are a few graphical mods that are mostly texture replacements. Still, Torchlight is probably the second best deal as far as entertainment:cost ratio behind HL2.
OH GOD, Torchlight modding.
Love/hate relationship for me. Love because the game is just so bloody brilliant with mods installed (especially some of the custom classes, so much more fun than the original ones); hate because if you install more than a certain number of mods (or if the modding folder exceeds a certain size), the game will make you pay hard. Sometimes you just get nude characters, which is easy to fix, but in my case I had some funky issues that made me have to delete all my saves to play the game.
And speaking of games with fantastic mod support that hate it when you mod them, if the first time around you didn't play Fallout 3/Vegas with mods, go do it again.
After all my awesome (but miserable) modding experiences, I was surprised how easy it is to mod Dragon Age. I have around 40+ mods installed right now concurrently and with no crashes or corrupted save files so far. So happy.
