the diablo 2 remaster has kind of made it look like merely a bad-looking modern game and therefore kind of charmless.

i guess opinions vary on what a remaster should accomplish but in in my books, for a 20+ year old game, this ain't it chief.

Well, I'm in the same boat, basically... I played enough D2 and D2+mods back in the day, for several lifetimes. I most likely won't get the Resurrected version anytime soon, if at all, but I'm sure they will get about $300 million worth of nostalgia sales, at minimum.

Bring on Diablo 4... by like 2024, probably.

*EDIT* Rofl, that video, about a third of the way through, one of the characters has his inventory like 50% full of charms and a teleport book. Ugh, so many bad design choices people gloss over in their minds from that game.

I'm getting major deja vu from this thread and the past couple Diablo 4 threads, from the threads prior to Diablo 3's release.

At this rate we're going to run out of pairs of rose colored glasses!

Well, it's still early, but apparently, Blizzard is trying to put a Darkzone(from Division 2) style pvp into Diablo 4, where there are PvE enticements and cosmetics and ?? in open PVP zones. Expect a lot of ganking from foreign players even at 4am, apparently.

Not great news, but possibly acceptable, as long as the best shit in the game isn't locked behind their pvp/manhunt system.

*EDIT* Grammar.

*EDIT* Apparently a bit more MMOish as well, with other players polluting the maps... not great news at all. But hey, it's still pre-Alpha, so who knows what will get kept in the final version.

Sheesh, yeah, good eye; looks like it. I hope it's not all a rehash of past villains though, but they probably feel pressured to put the old gang back in for nostalgia/dump trucks full of money.

That looks pretty great, actually. I hope all the classes have that two weapon/swapping focus, I haven't watched/read up much on Diablo 4 though.

Against my better wishes, I'm hyped up for Diablo 4, a lot more than the Diablo 2 remake, anyway. I just hope it's out before like 2024-2025 .

Also, please don't focus too much on pvp bullshit, aka the ears that were featured quite heavily in the cutscene, and were a crappy distraction in Diablo 2.

I'm sure they'll rake in the cash but, nope; Grim Dawn and Path of Exile do it better. I mean if it's 10 bucks or something then sure.

Hehe, if only Blizzard would charge just $10 for this. It'll be $39.99 minimum, that's my bet.


More on topic: I think I'm literally Diablo 2'd out... so many hours in vanilla, LoD, then mods... I don't even want to guess how many hours I spent grinding the same few bosses for drops in D2.

I don't understand that. How could you not see a huge pile of cars in front of you? In the video it doesn't even appear to be snowing. This is why I avoid highway driving as much as humanly possible. Speed + tailgating + selfish assholes + inattentive morons = death waiting to happen. It's so much more relaxing doing country or backroad drives even if it does take a little longer. And in many cases it doesn't, it's even faster. While people are sitting, fuming in gridlock, you're cruising the backroads virtually traffic free.

It's Texas, so I guarantee that everybody was going 30-40mph over the speed limit and barely looking at the road. That said, from other videos/accounts of this incident, the FedEx truck driver was attempting to slow, but he/she was already on the ice at that point, and had no chance.

I am currently in the South East US, and yes, if there is any sort of freezing/rain or snow (rare), I just stay off the roads for 2-3 days. Almost no one will drive in a sane manner down here during bad weather, and there is no system of plows/salt/sand for any southern US states. If they aren't going 40mph over the speed limit, then they are tailgating you an inch away with their brights on, because how else do raised pickup trucks function?

Hrm, already? Well if it it's free, great, I guess.

I'd rather they fix the kinda batshit plot holes towards the end of the game, and on rails fight/cutscenes at the end.

Still, overall I enjoyed the game as a whole.

Is this a streamer powered popularity or something? Surely Survival Game 9032832 can't be that unique?

Thinking about restarting this from the ground up. Might even scoop up the DLC when they're back on sale.

The Warlords DLC is great, the new maps are excellent, and the level 40 system (somewhat different than the level 30 capped vanilla game) is a major improvement, in my opinion.

However, unless you really want to, you don't have to start over from level 1, the level 30 to level 40 journey is basically starting over, you will scrap all your gear and have to grind quite a few drops to fill up your extraction library, etc.

I mean, you CAN start over from level 1; you have 4 character slots in your list by default, and can level up 1(or more?) to level 30 immediately if you decide to skip to the Warlords expansion.

Dyson Sphere program is Factorio on crack (and factorio itself was crack... so dyson sphere would be speed balls?) . Like an expanded 3d version of it requiring planetary involvement as opposed to railways. LOVE the liquid extraction (it puts them in packaged bars in conveyor, back to liquid when it hits a tank) it was a cute way of doing it, hope it isn't replaced by pipes in the future.

Though with a TON of similarities (resources, mining, storage, recipes, terrain manipulation, research, research items [even the colors are the same to start for research items] automation / transport... basically the whole game is a copy of Factorio that's been expanded) it'll be interesting to sere if it spawns any legal issues.

Well, good luck to the Factorio team, if they try to sue a company like Youthcat Studio (the makers of Dyson Sphere Program) in mainland China. Classic Chinese company strategy too, copy an existing successful product, and have great success. Luckily I don't think Factorio will get pushed off the marketplace by Dyson Sphere Program.

I am still addicted to the Divison 2, so I hope it isn't just more Manhunt recycled content.

Bitcoin is not a currency. It's a speculative artificial commodity, worse than beanie babies or tulip bulbs. It's also literally burning electricity to solve useless computational problems to get your virtual widgets. Current estimate is each bitcoin is roughly 74 terawatts of power. Bitcoin alone uses more power than Argentina, according to recent estimates. This power usage will only increase for Bitcoin, for mining/validation totals.

And of course rich assholes want people to get suckered in to the Bitcoin pyramid scheme now, when they control large portions of the available coins. Lost coins as mentioned still count AGAINST latecomers, or if they are ever recovered/found later, you're just making some asshole a multi-billionaire overnight.

It's also, as mentioned here, TOO FUCKING SLOW to be used as a currency. All other cryptocoins will have the same speed problem, or they will be insecure. cryptocurrency as a whole has this computational issue, that will most likely never be physically solvable. A side issue that also can't be ignored, is Bitcoin and other cryptocoins are vulnerable in theory to 51%+ computational man in the middle style attacks, where whoever controls 51% of the validation computations controls the blockchain. This probably won't ever happen for Bitcoin itself, but up and coming coins will most definitely be controlled before they even get to you. As it is, Bitcoin is already controlled via old methods of market manipulation, similar to gold/silver prices. Scammers like Elon Musk will tweet-control Bitcoin's value for years, now that he has some to throw around. New adopters will never make the kind of money old adopters or large scale wealthy holders will have, you will always be feeding them your money.

A simple test for any crytpocoin, when people talk about it, do they talk about it's worth in $USD or Euros, aka a real currency? This is how even a layman can see that these are not usable currency, just a stepping stone for manipulation before it gets to an actual fiat currency. The fact that banks are stepping in to start abusing bitcoin should at least trigger most peoples' apprehension and suspicion, but personal greed will probably win out.

/rant over.
