    I suppose the good news is that this indirectly made D2 Resurrected into the game is shaping up to be...unless they manage to fuck that up too.

    HOW. I mean seriously. HOW THE HELL could it POSSIBLY take them MONTHS to revamp ONE SINGLE LEVEL!?!?!?!?!?

    MONTHS for a single level????? Solo schmucks on the internet have made entire campaigns in less time -- WITH voice acting.

    This literally boggles my mind, and just confirms that this was a group of low-tier morons that had no idea what the hell they were doing from the start, and that they were incapable of doing this justice no matter how much time they were given.

    But hey. At least they got those female death knight and demon hunter models out, right?? Gotta focus on the IMPORTANT things!!!

    Given that they've already openly said that they're fucking with the base game and that the D2 remaster is only going to be '70% original', its pretty much a guarantee that it will be shit.

    Nobody at Activision Blizzard has the talent to make a game like D2, this is going to end like that idiot lady that decided she was going to 'fix' the painting of Jesus.

    It really depends on what they thought the scope of the project was. There are endless ways you could attempt to improve an old 3D game. At the high end you're creating an entirely new game, like FF7 remake vs FF7.

    It's still, ugly clunky and badly optimized. I stopped playing midway through the Blood Elven campaign and never looked back.
    The only thing that's objectively better is that some rules from The Frozen Throne were transplanted into the base game, so for example heroes with orbs can take down fliers.


    No initial design vision/direction and no graphics pipeline.

    Wasn't all the art done overseas by outsourcers (i.e Chinks & Koreans as usually happens)? This is just peak American game dev and American "corporations" in general now. A bunch of overpaid upper middle class retards doing nothing while management outsources all the work to other countries, does a bad job, then releases it as a shitshow, and the American devs complain about how they were mistreated for doing literally nothing.

    what is going to change in the D2 remaster? I though it was just a modern graphical overlay with the old game running underneath

    Yeah after the bewildering revelations of these last weeks, I'm just simply not addicted or nostalgic enough to give this company a penny.

    'Key quality of life improvements' was the verbiage being thrown around, and they were talking up SJW bullshit like 'accessibility' and how a player with a disability could play the game. They're also making it 'cross progression' so that consoles and PC can play at the same time (which means they're dumbing down the gameplay so that console mouthbreathers won't be at a disadvantage).

    I pretty much completely tuned out at that point. Nothing about anything Activision Blizzard has done the last 5 years makes me think that they have the SLIGHEST idea why the game was actually popular, and that they have every intention of fucking the base game up in the name of 'accessibility'.

    Blizzard is dead and buried. It's Activision Blizzard now.

    Just a note, I've tried the Quenching mod and it improves the graphics considerably, expecially the environments. I suggest giving it a try

    "Atleast the next one will be good, right guys?"

    Don't forget to preorder WotLK classic, D4 and the SC2 remaster.

    Considering what a huge PR disaster this was (on top of many others), the decent thing would be to redo it all over again. Old Blizzard would have done it or rather would never have released a half-baked game. New Blizzard doesn't even want to talk about this game.

    What a fucking dumpster fire. The people of Blizzard used to be my heroes. I think Diablo 4 is their last chance. D2R looks good but it's really just buying time until D4.

    No wonder their stories are so fucking bad these days. I don't expect such morally bankrupt people to make a good, inspiring story. I get the feeling that Mike Morhaime and Chris Metzen were the good guys at Blizzard and Chris is a bit too idealistic for me.

    Why is there no jurisdiction in the world where it's legal to raise funds to kill faggots such as those depicted (and go through with it). I mean, fuck!, 5 minutes on twitter, reddit, facebook or any other random place of the web and it's abundantly clear what the world's problems are. Why does nobody solve them...
