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.
Well I'm digging it. I'm gonna jump in and play since to my eyes it looks like an upgraded version of Diablo2. Unless they majorly fuck up the gameplay elements that made it great, we haven't seen much of itemization, and high level items, high level mobs, resistances etc. etc.
Assuming they keep the elements from patch 1.10 and beyond, it's going to be exactly the same experience with better graphics. So yeah, it's fair to say that I'm gonna enjoy it. This comment was edited on Feb 22, 2021, 04:51.
