    So this whole debacle made me re-install DII with the widescreen mod that's floating around this thread.

    For whatever reason, for the first time ever, I installed the English version. And Gods damn, is it shite compared to the Potato one. Blizzard had shit voice actors compared to CD Projekt (the publisher, not Red, the developer).

    Wow, I couldn't disagree more. PL version was good but EN is pure incline.

    FFS compare the likes of Drognan or Akara. Necro lines are much, much better in PL too.

    That seems great. I am that level but still beginning chapter 3 Nightmare....skellies do everything and I just cast curses and bone armor because I am a weakling with bad gear.

    yeah in 1.0 skelis have no AR so can't really hit enemies.

    judging by xp gain level 45ish to 50 was most you could get solo. unless you simulate /players with tcp/ip bots and crab maggot spawns all day (which give xp, another thing they fixed later).

    Like the bonewall, bonespear, maybe due to high resolution, doesn't look as impressive, as if it is missing part of its gauss rifle effect.

    Man they've really nerfed the gore and blood effects. Missing those huge meaty chunks flying around in glorious pixel graphics. All gone now and replaced with sterility.

    I love how he seems to agree that the only one that looks somewhat OK is the Sorceress.

    But man, he's SAVAGE on the others.

    Carbot's Paladin is the best one. How they re-imagined the clean cut chad Paladin from D2 as a druggy is just beyond me.

    That's actually just what some of the workers at blizzard look like more or less.

    So $40-$60 (depending on if you want to vomit at D3. Both say Broadband internet connection??? Uh is that just for battlenet or is this the new shitty blizzard standard? You need online to play solo D2 REMASTERED? Fucking fags. They could be more explicit on their page. Not that I care. 40$ for a game I have 2 full copies of already. Thought I lost one.
    Uh.... no.

    Probably just for Battlenet. Not sure why it specifies broadband but it's definitely going to be an always-online thing.

    Edit: just did some research and it looks like it might be the whole "you can play offline but we need you to connect periodically" shit.
