    posted a message on These D3 devs are a joke

    What would you guys rather have? Try and rescue D3 yet another time? Or have all 100 devs develop a new game? (Most likely a Diablo styled MMO)

    Also see the Rhyker's video, he mentions a D2 remaster quite a lot!

    To the ones saying a remastered version would be too hard?

    If they just do a prettier D2 with 3D graphics I would play it for sure. BUT...how cool would it be if they tossed in a larger inventory on the character, a shared stash, and then some other quality of life improvements?


    I have always found that a shared stash winds up being a hindrance more than an improvement.
    I actually had a number of muling accounts back in the day. A couple of dudes stacked with shakos ;) Even if a shared stash is preferable, they would have to make it near endless(which they promised in the start of D3)

    It wasn't hardly my idea though, but I won't lie that I want this to happen!


    go find me a thread that isn't confirmation bias when hyping for blizzcon. Don't be such grumpy boring people and at least have some fun discussing possibilities.

    It sounds like you already made your decision and then figured out a way to make all of the clues fit your idea. Confirmation bias to the extreme. None of the things you pointed out really seem that likely or obvious to me, as much as I would like a big and exciting announcement.

    Tunnel vision, right? :)
    Who cares, just hop on in on the hypetrain

    I would love to go through Diablo II with a good friend that I play D3 with. I wonder if they will make hooking up in multiplayer easier in a remastered D2?

    A Remastered version should indeed include a modernized battle net experience. I cannot see them ever releasing another title that's not included in the launcher or disconnected from your personal account.

    Blizzard will announce a Diablo Remastered version at blizzcon 2016.


    This is Remastered version will include both the story of Diablo and Diablo II in a new 3D Engine, while generally retaining the gameplay of Diablo II.


    Why? For one, because the general audience of the Diablo franchise has no idea what happened before Diablo III. I can argue that these stories were one of the most epic ones ever told in a video game. Personally, I find it a logical decision to get the audience more involved into the story, as we are with Warcraft, and prepare the brand for future releases.


    Other hints that were given recently are dead giveaways of this decision. Of which some are shown recently through Twitter and the Blizzcon panel schedule.


    Lets talk Twitter first, the guys from Blizzard north suddenly showed up at Blizzard HQ. Coincidence? I hardly think so. This would only make sense when a Remastered version is being worked on, and the first ones to see outside of the company should be the original developers. It's a noble and honorable gesture towards them.


    "Diablo 20th Anniversary
    Duration: 60 Minutes (Mainstage)
    Join the Diablo III development team for a look back on two decades in Sanctuary, and get a first look at our plans to celebrate the occasion."


    No Diablo 4, however it could be considered as such.


    When looking at the wording, it's the Diablo III team that's working on a new project. Perfectly understandable, who else is better qualified than running a Remastered version in the engine of Diablo III? We are taking a look back at what is being Remastered.


    Blizzard has always used GAME: "what's next" to show that there's a new game or expansion being worked on.


    "First look", which suggests, it's a relatively large project and that there is more to come.


    As said, the audience has just received a glimpse of what the Diablo universe is really about in he latest Diablo installment. I believe that a Remastered version to tell the story of the past is the only route to getting the brand ready for any future releases.


    "Diablo Art & Design
    Duration: 60 minutes.
    Chris Amaral - 3D Modeling, Michael Franchina - Traditional Drawing, Zaven Haroutunian - Design"


    It's absolutely not worth talking a full hour about design when it comes to upcoming patches for Diablo III. However, talking about the design and new 3D models in a Remastered Diablo II is critical and most logical panel to have. It is by far the most important aspect of remastering a game.



    Other Diablo panel;


    "Diablo III - Dev Talk and Q&A
    Duration: 60 minutes.
    The Diablo III team digs deep into upcoming patches, showcasing new features and epic content making their way into the game in the future. They’ll also answer any burning questions you might have."


    This tells me that they have a long lasting patch strategy for Diablo III instead of an expansion. A showcase for what's in store for Diablo the coming year. There would be more panels regarding lore/design/gameplay when a new title(D4) is announced.


    Diablo floor map:

    Last year, Diablo was somewhat the ignored kid and had a booth the size of a toilet stall (no kidding, look it up!). This year the floor map shows an actual booth with something to play. The booth is too small (less than 50% of any other booth) to showcase anything new. If a new title is shown, even an expansion, with a playable version, the hype train would be real and it would require a much larger booth. Instead, it will

    most likely showcase ALL diablo games. In other words, no playable version of the Remastered game is shown on the floor.


    What hat are your thoughts? Or better yet, what do you hope that they will announce?

    posted a message on My prediction on Blizzcon for Diablo

    1.10 D2 LOD with proper battle.net integration. I WOULD LOVE IT!


    How about modern graphics on these games? They did have a full team at their disposal for more than 2 years...

    posted a message on What will happen at Blizzcon?

    To me it looks like a new expansion is out of the question. Josh M. Said in an interview the game would be a "reaper of patches" or something similar. In hindsight this indicates to me that they weren't working on a new expansion anymore shortly after the game launched. Instead all the so far produced content would be distributed in patches instead. Of course this would lead to the end of Josh M.being he game director, as they need a new vision for a new/reworked game.


    I'd go for 1 game that features the whole (and pimped) story or D1/D2 with modern graphics but keeps the classes and systems mostly the same.

    I went to Gamescom, hoped for something new. Nope

    hoped for a hint or Easter egg in the Diablo games that were available, nope.


    Much dissappoint :(


    They did a live artwork of the Diablo II box art though. What does it mean?!

    posted a message on Why do *you* love Diablo?

    It was the first game I could play hours upon hours on end. To this day, I still think back of our old D2 times and wish Diablo 3 was more like it. Even so, Diablo 3 has a good action rhythm going for it which makes me play it for about 1.5-2 month every season.

    I think this was pretty much confirmed when they could predict the item stats before an item was identified
