    Dunno about that. It's certainly been a while, but Van Helsing is from the same company and is sold on gog. So maybe at some point.

    (unless there's some GW fuckery involved in this decision...)

    I finished a few of them (Torchlight, Torchlight 2, Victor Vran) probably because I mostly play them in CoOp, but I agree with the overall gist of this. Titan Quest, Grim Dawn, Torchlight I/II, Dungeon Siege III are boring, Path of Exile is boring (I didn't get very far though, since I dropped it relatively early and it was quite a while ago), even Diablo III is fucking boring. For most of these not even playing CoOp will make you suffer through and finish them. Replaying the Diablo 2 Beta and going through the content again with two chars reminded me that these games don't have to be boring and they can even be exciting enough that you'd want to replay the same content again with another character and not be thankful that it's finally over. The only one I actually liked and got into was Victor Vran, which also had some unique and new game mechanics.

    This shit is especially funny, since StarCraft notwithstanding, Diablo II and WarCraft 3 are probably the best games Blizzard has ever made.

    W3 is one of the worst RTSes.

    I would just say it's a different style of RTS, similar to Company of Heroes which focuses more on squads with a lot of abilities. I played a lot of AoE 2 and SC as they were my favorite RTS:es, didn't enjoy WC3 a lot for the standard gameplay it offered but the custom maps were legendary just like in SC.

    The Reziarfg is one of the most enduring and famous April Fool jokes centering around the Diablo II Universe.

    It is a fictional monster created by Battle.net Staffers at the Arreat Summit. Its stats are still present there as a grim reminder to all those Hardcore characters who lost their lives to find it.

    Unofficial Lore

    "Spawned from the very bowels of the skulking Stygian Beast who awakens only once every 1000 years to feed off the spawn of its own bile and pus, the Reziarfg is truly the most hideous and vile monster in all of the Three’s bestiary. It was once said that the Three did not always rule the darkness that beasts beyond thought swelled and slithered across the void. It is believed that some of these nightmares may still exist hidden deep within the pitch of the abyss where even the darkness of the upper realms of hell seems like day. This is where Reziarfg lives."


    Can't expect NEW easter eggs and content pshhh. Unlockable NPCs to play, warrior, rogue, sorcerer, monk, bard, crow, drunk...

    I await the vids.

    Well, it could have been worse. It could have had D1+Hellfire added and redone using the D2 engine. If i want that... belzebub is an option as it is pretty similar in some ways. (Never get that clear the dungeon feel since levels respawn upon reload).

    Yeah the so called shit rts type like Age of Mythology.

    The only thing going for it was that it was blizzgame at height of blizz fandom who would buy anything in milions with its sticker + blizz cinematics people jacked off to. And i finished W3 along with extra content.

    Even russian RTSes like Tzar were better than this shit. Out of 50 rtses in that era it wouldn't be even in top 30.

    It was just so unpopular and bad that everyone and their dog created Custom maps for it with entirely new experiences you could play with friends for hundreds of hours, and it even popularized entirely new genres of Computer games like MOBA or Tower Defense and WC3 Custom maps still have an influence on games being developed even today, oh and the campaign was also pretty good for back then.

    I thought it was a sleepy retarded astronaut.

    Maybe these characters never fought minions of hell before. It must look stupid in multiplayer if there are like a pack of paladins. I need to find a video of this.

    Bullshit.

    W3 combined RTS gameplay with actual heroes, who had major impact on battles (and this was a huge step up from SC, where heroes were just a bit stronger standard units), while also having four very distinct races to play with. The campaign wasn't as good as that of SC (and SC:BW), but it was good enough and the meat of the game was playing the multiplayer part of it anyway.

    Eh I played the betas and it seemed okay. The QoL stuff is good and the gameplay is exactly the same, coming from somebody that actually still plays the base game.

    Main reason I am not supporting it is 40$ price LOL. They are using some crazy drugs over there.

    If I want to play D2 I will just download latest Path of Diablo update and get all their QoL changes and balance changes and extra endgame and stuff without shitty 40$ changes.

    Diablo 2 with LoD is still most playable hack n' slash. I don't mind supporting the Devs as im waiting for D4 to hit the shelves. D2 has magic atmosphere and is way better than D3.
    In it's genre it's still the king. Im eagerly waiting for release and hours of playing.

    At least Grim Dawn has surpassed Diablo quite a while ago. Imo, Titan Quest also surpasses it but it needs more attention. I think the guys behind Spellforce are creating Titan Quest 2 now, so we'll see how they handle it.

    Already preloaded. Can't wait to play for a week before dropping it in disgust because of it's archaic gameplay and my horrible build.

    Titan Quest 2 is still at least 3 or 4 years in the future, I think they only more or less confirmed its development this summer. There's several other interesting games releasing before that, like Last Epoch or Path of Exile 2.
