    Diablo II Resurrected

    When you hear that they're remastering Diablo II and you're happy Blizzard aren't doing it

    -Runs the old 25 FPS game logic under new 3D engine
    -Gameplay still based on frame breakpoints etc.
    -Old graphics toggle
    -Limited QOL improvements such as item linking, but keeps things like player collision in Maggot Lair
    -New features like auto-gold pick up can be toggled
    -Based on 1.14, no balance changes at launch
    -Completely independent of DII (won't overwrite your install)
    -Online characters won't expire
    -Still has 8 player MP / PVP
    -Shared stash
    -Both Classic and LOD included
    -Some new ambient sound effects, but mostly untouched
    -Console versions / controller support for PC + shared characters among platforms (but no cross-play)
    -No more realms
    -Better online security but they can't promise no duping / no bots.

    Can't wait for everyone to take a collective shit on it after a week when they realize how far in reality Path of Exile pushed the genre forward and they're no longer 12yo runing same level all the time.

    Last time I replayed D2 was about 2 years ago and I still liked it way more than Path of Exile. But I’ll still shit on it because it’s just a graphics update, way to be uncreative.

    I played through it once and never played again. I can't understand the hype from people who keep grinding at it. The story and cinematics was cool for the time. But the gameplay was never that great.

    What's funny it looks better than the rogue reveal for D4. D4 looks like some mobile shit on this recent trailer (coincidence? I will laugh my ass of if they use code and assets from Immortal they paid Netease to make for them in D4).

    Assuming no new gameplay mechanics, why would I want to buy this again?

    Pass.

    To play through with friends. Which is the only reason to buy any of the "remastered" stuff.

    No but it's shit, 50%+ botters, constant realm down etc.

    It will use same bnet, it's just fancy renderer on top At least that's what they claim in interviews. Which can be end quite funny if MedianXL, Project Diablo 2 and Path of Diablo are easily portable and not blocked.

    Pretty sure they claim the opposite, they did say positive things about mod support though.

    PoE is pretty different, is a bigger time investment and more of a pure skinner box. Grinding for currency is less rewarding than item hunting, but that's a personal opinion. Anyway I don't have time to put dozens of hours into these games a week any more, and I'm still looking forward to this game because simply playing through D2 on Hardcore (with friends or solo) is a fun experience, you don't need to grind the endgame forever. Low level duels are fun, PKing in public games is fun. If grinding endgame is what you want though then sure PoE is better (I'm not knocking it, I know the satisfaction in that).

    Same-ish here, I never understood the grinding game and I dislike farming stuff. One of the reasons I quit WoW long long time ago and can't be bothered. I enjoyed Diablo 3 with expansions but never really got into farming it mindlessly - that's why I can't into Seasons and crap like that.

    Imo remastered games are nice for people who haven't played them back in the day, but they never should be more than side projects in developing an IP. Santa Monica did it right with God of War, the remastered ones never really were "main things" as the story progressed further.
    Guns make the news, science doesn't.

    I'm also one of those strange ones who played Diablo for the story
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.
