    The remaster is in house, not farmed out to some rando team at least. Not pre-ordering, but after watching the Blizzcon segment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3dL7ZeIAsE I'm really looking forward to it.

    Yeah, it's a bloody great feature in Destiny 2. Glad that more games are embracing it now.

    Probably PC and Switch purchases for me if it's good.

    Only ever played Diablo 3 so looking forward to trying 2 since the consensus seems to be that itís better.

    I wouldn't say it was 'better'. Diablo 2 and 3 are brilliant games and both do things a little differently in terms of tone and how builds work, especially with the addition of runes in 2. I would say D3 better conveyed the feeling of being powerful with the powers and damage you could deal out.

    @JamboWayOh I hear that Path of Exile is actually
    more similar to D2 than D3 is.

    I played a bit of path of exile and itís really good especially considering itís free.

    Just prefer it if they added controller support tbh. I know I know.

    @THFourteen I played a bit on PS4. I liked it but missed the punchier feel of D3. Guess Iím just a filthy casual!

    @jonathanlealand 2 is pretty bare bones compared to 3, you play the story 3 times and you farm for better gear: and you make a different character if you want to try different builds, that's all there is to it really, still fun as hell though.

    Yeah, I really hope they add some form of post-game content, because endlessly running the final act in hope of getting slightly better gear is not that great.

    I also hope they modernize the multiplayer to avoid the loot sniping, noob harassment, irl trading, etc. But I realize that for some people it might have actually been part of the appeal.

    They'll probably go the D3 route with the loot and have exclusive drops for each player. And they'll probably loop the gameplay in the same way too.

    Diablo 2 Resurrected will be a true redesign of original D2. For people who didn't play it back in the day, it doesn't look like a good game today, but for me a hardcore fan who played it when it came out in 1998 this is a dream come true!

    The came has 0 bugs, some people call it clunky but I strongly disagree. You need to keep in mind that the game is 23 years old... and all hack and slash RPG's are a copy/knock off of D2.

    Diablo 3 was a fail from my standpoint, as it didn't give you such freedom with your build as D2 did.

    As Vicarious Visions has already shown what are they capable of, I am super confident we will get an awesome "remake".

    He's such a hardcore fan he played it 2 years before it came out.

    Probably told this story before, but when Diablo 2 came out someone fucked up when ordering the CDs. Rather than data quality, they were audio quality, meaning the plastic wasn't meant to spin up at the 32x+ speeds that were common at the time. I think we only had two calls about it in total, but the CDs were shattering into a million pieces in people's drives. We replaced the drives and gave them a new copy of the game, but it was a fun 'bug'.

    My heart is telling me to get this for pc as opposed to console so I can click the shit out of my mouse. It's also going to be weird having to remember to use health potions again.

    Sounds like they haven't really changed the core game itself outside of a few QOL things like the shared chest, so it'll be the same endgame as the original.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a rift/grift style system make it in post-launch though.

    You can sign up for the alpha over at https://diablo2.blizzard.com/en-gb/

    The mobs are certainly updated a fair bit but it all has a whiff of Warcraft 3 about it. It's all very much a delay/cash in before D4 imo. Have this fully released October? Gives another year at least for D4 end of 2022.

    I'm aware of this but honestly don't give a shit. I love D2 and would like to play it in a non pixelated way.

    Yeah, I loved it back in the day. I wasn't really impressed by the upgrade tbh. Maybe I need to watch the video again and it is alpha code.
