[IGN/WC] Blizzard Planning to Remaster and Re-release Warcraft 3, Diablo 2, and Starcraft - Page 14

post #131 of 136
Some might call it lazy and Blizzard milking it, but I'll admit, I am a sucker for these remakes. The improvements in tech have come so quickly, that it always makes me wonder how a certain game would look with current gen engines.

I'm surprised no WC2, though. Ideally, that seems like a prime candidate.

Definitely see the other side of the issue, though. When will we get an actual new full fledged game? Even MS is just capitalizing on user generated content by introducing a couple of new campaigns to AoE and AoM. At what point will we get a brand spanking new RTS? The RTS genre faded so quickly.

Best kind of lazy, at least for this example.

Hey I'm not complaining, I need a remastered Diablo 2 in my life. I'd love to do some Baal or Diablo runs with the old friends again

Blizzard has the biggest problem with stagnation and brain drain.

Spamming meph runs with an Forb tele wizard, or FWall... z0mg.

Actually, writing this line just brought up another issue I have with D3..

All I need to do to try a new build is to change my skill tree to a different skill set and get the gear, gone are the days of re-rolling a new character to try something different. It is kind of counter-intuitive but it gave the game a lot of replay-ability, and tangentially got people more involved in the community because everyone wanted rushes, so there was a lot of give and take anonymously. I think it really did make the game better.

Agreed.

I always liked how finding a new unique could open up a whole build that wouldn't be doable before. Titans's Revenge? Javazon time! I've got like 10 characters all built for something different. I didn't re-spec my fury barb, I just made a new one! Pit run, meph runs, chip gem finding, running LK chests, high council, sanctuary, LAN builds focused on stacking auras/shouts on skeletons/revives, dealing with Nitty's corpse explosion for key runs, 0% MF chars to run for white/eth socketable items, uber killers, duelers. Admittedly a couple of those are for BNet/LAN of course. If leveling took way to long this would be tedious. But it was just short enough to be fun for me, and even shorter if you did rush it.

I also liked how gear wasn't usually class-specific. A shako/arachmech wasn't just a good helm for a Sorceress it was good for most magic based builds. A Necro, Druid, Paladin, etc could all get usage out of it in a caster build. Something like Andy's Visage was good for lots of physical builds. You could never roll "the wrong stat" to make it useless for a whole character and drops could make multiple characters better.

There was none of this bound equipment crap either. I really hate that aspect in new games more often then not.
