    Take sport for example, how many hours do you think a sports fan puts into watching their favorite sport, whether that be rugby or soccer or maybe hockey... now take your comment and apply it to sport, does it now seem like a silly comment to you?

    People have hobbies, as I'm sure you do as well, how people enjoying their time is entirely up to them, to say there is something wrong with someones life because they have a hobby is not cool.

    Diablo 2 was released 21 years ago, so of course if someone really likes it there are going to be individuals who have spent thousands of hours playing said game over the course of 21 years, as I'm sure the same is true for a sports fan enjoying watching their favorite sport.

    i agree that the models were strangely picked. the Amazon's face is awful - it does look like they used a man model for the face. Pally's model choice doesn't resembles the original D2. the rest looks ok.

    on the other hand, it's just gonna be in the menu itself.. nothing beyond.

    I wish more people would tell them to frack off with this nonsense. 99% are like you, they don't like it but won't say anything, or just dismiss it to themselves with "it's just the menus". I'm sick and tired of seeing this happen in everything.

    yeah, but that's the actual truth of it buddy. it is gonna be ugly and in-our-face, every time we're gonna open a new character. other than that.. did you ever looked at your D2 model ? both the short and long answer will be: No. you can take the Alpha subscription and send your feedback to them on those models issues. as for myself, i don't have the energy to think about everything that's wrong in the gaming industry, specially something that i won't see outside the menus.

    why blizzard is so great, they keep updating there games. they keep working on your game for a long time. tell me how many pc games don't even give you an option to turn off mouse screen edge strafing, let alone an option for mouse pointer size. that's love baby...LOL.

    More gameplay. I think it looks absolutely amazing.

    Yep, looks great. As true to original as it gets. Hit recovery still clearly a thing. Andariel's room looks stunning. Graphics are spot on.

    I just hope they give us a few hundred pages of shared stash so that the holy grailers are happy.

    It's enough to bother the crap out of me to the point that I wouldn't buy the game if I didn't know it'll be the first thing that'll be modded. And the art team give 0 fucks what people think, they'll only change it if they're told it might cost them enough sales to matter. Art teams in "TrIpLe Aaayyyy" studios are hired explicitly to be woke, leaked auto, emails, messages, etc, have confirmed that a thousand times over. The ugliness is very much intentional, you don't accidentally spend hours modelling a face that looks like the procreating Crypt Keeper.

    It especially pisses me off because the Amazon and Paladin were my favourites, and those two have been absolutely butchered. One's an 80-something year old tranny and the other is a racist caricature (and they actually look even nastier, so far, in-game than these renders):

    Lower your pitch forks fellas, but I've never played Diablo 2. :eek:

    When it came out I was just getting into PC gaming and was mainly into shooters. But I have played a ton of Titan Quest over the years. This looks really good and something I could definitely enjoy.

    Not interested. I have like 250EU in the Blizz "wallet" and not interested in a thing they have to sell.
    Warcraft, WoW Classic, and now this are all proof of corporation that is out of ideas, afraid to innovate, and on its dying bed. Only its old IPs and money are keeping it afloat. Its OG devs all left. Same with Bioware, who is remastering its own games, after Anthem failed miserably.
    What would truly make me happy is seeing these 2 corporations finally fail, so they die with relative dignity. Even that's already too late.

    Sadly that’s the idiocy we are living now , I cannot say much as I don’t want to upset the sensitive politically correct brigade of beta males .

    Just let the nutcases keep shitting on everything without speaking out? No. That's the problem, most people hate it and never say anything and just keep eating crap over and over, so the companies keep doing it.

    Bring sjw and mixed content in a classic.

    That's "how you ruin" a whole generation.

    After the "amazing" W3 reforged, I would be very weary of another Blizzard remaster. W3 was just a cheap cash grab that delivered worse looking graphic than the original and far, far worse than what they showed in Blizzcon. They also made changes to EULA so that they would be the sole owners of all the user made maps and anything like DOTA wouldn't happen again or well if it would they would be able to monetize it. This has lead to several amazing maps that are now sole propriety of Blizzard (showcases start around halfway through the video).

    i agree. the thing is.. both franchises are different, and the crew that worked on both remasters is different from what they shared with the community so far. i know that me and a few friends are going to play it, but we aren't pre-purchasing. D2 in the end is all about the items\grind\pvp, there is no real weight on the story and\or cinematics, just the crazy atmosphere and the never ending hunt for items and dueling. and so far, it looks great - things haven't been touched, just quality of life changes and a more modern touch on the graphics\movement. W3 problems were a bit different.. cut scenes, voice acting, multiplayer problems etc.

    all jokes aside, Amazon looks like a man-model. Pally looks like the black version of Pete Sampras, i even see some similarity to The Weeknd. still, it won't matter. actually the models in-game,
    all of em - looks good to me.
