Quote from insanetrasherQuote from BissoQuote from insanetrasherGive me at least 2008 graphics and I'd trade D3 for D2 anytime. I'd even pay 60$ for it, nothing changed to gameplay (except maybe potions spamming removed) just updated graphics (and not even today's graphics).
Personally, I am suprised no one came up with some kind of patch that would basicly just upscale the whole game via a post processing shader. Just enough so it can smooth pixels out to be a bit easier on the eyes. À-la- SNES emulators upscale filters.
I doubt it would do the trick to make it acceptable to play again. But on a side note there are already custom patches that enables higher resolution, but it doesnt scale with the action bar so it looks weird.
Anyways, beside some limited gameplay features, D2 was so amazing in terms of art style (for its time indeed) and the environments were always fun to play over and over (and more randomized than D3 linear acts/lacks of dungeons). I'm so underwhelmed by D3 in those aspects... too bad Blizz North didn't live to make D3.
Try Torchlight 2, if you haven't already. Dam, if i was paid more attention to that game,
To topic: seems they're preparing 0.8 for anniversary.
