Diablo II: Resurrected Released

The second, second coming of Diablo is upon us, as Diablo II: Resurrected is now available through the Blizzard Store. Here's the Live Action Trailer ft. Simu Liu from the other day and a Live Action Trailer ft. Winston Duke from yesterday celebrating the launch. Here's a rundown on the action/RPG remake:
Diablo® II: Resurrected™ is a remastered version of the quintessential action RPG Diablo® II. Pursue the mysterious Dark Wanderer and fight the denizens of hell as you uncover the fate of the Prime Evils Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, now in up to 4K (2160p) resolution on PC. Diablo II Resurrected features:

  • Remastered graphics—monsters, heroes, items, spells, all resurrected.
  • An epic story told through five distinct acts.
  • Classic gameplay—the same Diablo II you know and love, preserved.
  • Updated Battle.net support.
  • Planned support for cross-progression—take your progress wherever you play.
  • … and much more!

The Lord of Destruction Returns
Diablo II: Resurrected includes all content from both Diablo II and its epic expansion Diablo II: Lord of Destruction®. Battle your way through icy caverns, horrific tombs filled with undead abominations, and frozen wastelands to the frigid summit of Mount Arreat and stop Baal, the Lord of Destruction. Raise hell with two Lord of Destruction playable classes—the cunning Assassin, master of traps and shadow disciplines, and the savage Druid, a bold shapeshifter and summoner who commands primal elemental magic.

You must bring yourself joy on a daily basis then, because saying he wants to sound smarter than everyone else doesn't equal me wanting the same thing.

I feel "pedantic" is a fairly common word, yet still find it funny that it was used on this forum twice yesterday, by two different people, in two different topics, within hours.

The mean/mode/median discussion will forever be among my favorites here.

I started up my D2 Median XL install and it works fine Har har har

According the Median XL mod creator, D2R there will be a single player mod coming some time in 2021 inspired by Median "but better" so that's an interesting bit to look forward to.
Doesn't Blizzard not allow mods online to play?

You make it sound like Blizzard has control over anything regarding this, and if they get too hamfisted, people will just emulate b.net again.. was probably already done too.

It's not confusing, it was always called TCP/IP, and is a commonly used term. And there is multiplayer without it, because Battle.net is not the same thing, it is distinct in both name and function.
Yes, your terminology usage is confusing to anyone who is knowledgeable in network protocols. And yes, it was called that and TCP/IP is a common term. However, you are using it incorrectly. Battle.net is using TCP/IP, in the modern world everything uses TCP/IP. Now, in the old days you might use something like NetBEUI (an IBM/Mircosoft network protocol) but in the last 20 years, it was all TCP/IP. Don't feel bad though, 99% of the population has no idea about this stuff, just nerds like me who ended up working in IT.
I'm not using it incorrectly, that's what the feature was called, that's what was removed, and that was what Blizzard and all the news articles also referred it as. Anyone that's played the game knows what the feature is and what it does, and what I meant. You're just being hopelessly pedantic because, I guess you wanna sound smarter than everyone else.

Got my Druid up to LVL 31, about to take down Baal. It took a lot of effort on my part not to start with a sorceress...

Really annoying they didn't fix more issues with the base game, issues like my mercenary getting stuck off screen and not automatically teleporting to me, or him not having his aura up 24/7.

I'm having a ball, played online with a friend for hours yesterday until the server issues started up. There are a few quirks, but they are largely due to the fact that this remaster is literally built on top of' the original game. Most have been mentioned, such as the wonky targeting. I might switch to using my PS4 controller, as I understand it's smoother with a controller, and I'd rather not worry about destroying my mouse, as logitech doesn't make this model anymore and it's my absolute favorite mouse ever lol.

Game is extremely faithful, with lots of QoL updates, some so small you barely notice them until a memory kicks in and makes you realize it's changed; such as the 5 & 6 numbers in the font being much easier to distinguish lol. The lighting is amazing, and they did an amazing job capturing the desaturated gothic graphics. I had a fun time switching between original and new graphics all the time, just to see how dramatically better the graphics are. Also just because it's amazing how much my memories smoothed those graphics out in my memory.

I didn't know you could do that until I clicked "H" for help and it mentioned to press F or G to change it. What a damn shocker. It literally morphs in front of your eyes from crisp, clear, sharp to a pixelated MESS, lol. I think it is quite brilliant actually that they allow that. I honestly hadn't played D2 in so many damn years that I forgot how terrible it looked these days. Obviously I wouldn't dare play the game permanently with that mode enabled but the ability to flip to it on a dime just to see the graphics from then to now is awesome.

Thanks for the clarification. Your word choice is slightly confusing because obviously it is using TCP/IP, otherwise there would be no on-line play.

I'm pretty torn on purchasing here as well. I don't want to support ActiBlizz, and I take back my previous comment about TCP/IP removal not being a big deal. It is a reasonable expectation that the game retains that functionality, and I'd rather play LAN with my spouse without having to connect to Battle.Net. Also, there's gamepad support which allows joystick movement, however there's no WASD support for keyboard/mouse players. What the hell Blizzard? It's 2021, I don't want to have to click-to-move anymore! On the other hand, the footage of the game I've seen so far has me salivating to play.
I'm probably going to cave in a week's time and buy the game, despite lack of TCP/IP and lack of WASD move.

Doubt I'll pick this up until someone figures out how to get TCP/IP back after Blizzard took it out after saying everything from the old game would be there.
I assume you mean off-line LAN multi-player?

I mean TCP/IP, it's not for offline but for P2P connections. Blizzard wants to force everyone to use Battle.net.

Still recall D2 on my 3dfx 5.5k and then V3 back in 2k, a decent experience...there's just something about the game that seems lacking in a lot of games today. I suppose I'll have to pick this up for nostalgia if nothing else. I spent quite some time playing the Median XL modded D2 a couple of years ago. Still fun--and, yes, the musical scores knocked it out of the park!
It is well known that I cannot err--and so, if you should happen across an error in anything I have written you can be absolutely sure that *I* did not write it!...;)

Hmm, these comments have my conviction wavering a little on my Activision boycott... D2 was my favorite game through high school.
