    There is no way they will capture the soul of D2 in this, the pozz will permeate the product. Thank God they can't take D2 away from us!

    Anyone watching the streams? Is this another Reforged or do I actually allow myself to be hyped?

    Christ almighty my jaded ass would love to be hyped again.

    I may pick this up when it's five dollars for enhanced mod support far down the line but what are the chances the worthwhile mods add support like Median XL?

    I will be creating mods for the game.

    Expect a "Game Journalist" mode for people like myself!

    Diablo 2 really requires almost genius levels of intellect to play.

    Huh, so I woke up, started up my computer while having breakfast and the first thing recommended to me by Youtube is some Japanese Adidas-themed VTuber streaming the Early Access version of this. Interesting times we live in, but I guess I now know it's finally time to see if this could be decent :lol:

    Watched a few minutes of some spergs playing this, it doesn't look too awful - I'd say it's pretty faithful so far. Shit interface, though. This industry is so creatively bankrupt it's laughable.

    Why does it have to have Macho Maam Tranny Savage? Why can't video games have attractive women anymore? I'll tell ye why because the obese dykes who work at these companies now can't tolerate women who are even remotely healthy and attractively.

    I watched some D2 streamers try it out yesterday and honestly looked kind of fine as far as Blizzard goes. There were some enemies that looked totally out of place (Ghosts, Act2 birds), but otherwise it didn't look too bad. They had some really weird UI changes that kind of showed that the devs probably have no actual experience of the original, like having only a single indicator for allocatable stats and skills and not positioning the yes-option on the mouse cursor when buying stuff. lso the loading screens worked in a weird way that you could actually move during them and Duriel could even attack you during them. Probably will be fixed for final release but was pretty hilarious.

    So while it looked kind of fine I still don't see the point of paying for it. The sprite work still holds up to this day, and at least IMO still looks better than the fairly generic 3D they've introduced. The gameplay is the same (as far as I understood only swapcasting didnt work), so you basicly get a shared stash and a worse framerate vs the original? At least with the streamers I watched the game was struggling quite often, especially in act 2.

    Wasn't that a thing in original diablo? I recall people complaining about ruined HC characters because they took too long to load into Duriel.

    Well, what did you expect? I mean, this entire "remaster" trend centers around people unable to turn out products capable of competing with their prior products, so resort to re-heating their old products to repackage as something new. Notice how the most frequent cause of a remaster tends to be the previous product being a flop.

    And, of course, this is itself a sign of creative stagnation, because their previous product was just a sequel to an even more previous product:

    Diablo 2 => Diablo 3 => Diablo 2 Remastered.

    Rome: Total War => Rome Total War 2 => Rome Total War Remastered.

    Seeing a trend here?

    Wasn't a tranny amazon in the OG too? Funny thing, I've never played the amazon or the sorceress coz 20 years ago I thought playing a female char in a vidya is gay. I clearly remember we used to mock our mates who admitted playing the sorceress.

    Btw I just watched a bit of Asmongold's VOD and the framerate in that alpha test is hilarious. If they don't fix that for the release it's gonna be an even bigger shitstorm than Reforged.

    Could be that too, I can't remember exactly tbh. Something they should definitely fix though.

    Didn't they do exactly that to Warcraft 3? Doesn't matter even if you added W3 keys to your bnet account - you have to pirate the original game to play it.
