[Starcraft] StarCraft: Brood War Patch 1.18 Patch - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Rock on! This .... is why Blizzard is my favourite developer.

Release this for free to create buzz on old gamers and introduce new ones... then premium version for cash seems perfectly acceptable (they have big-boy money issues just like we all do).

I would play/buy a remastered Diablo 2 without even hesitating.

I like that they made the original starcraft free.

also think it is a bit absurd to expect Blizzard to remaster an almost 2 decade old game for free (just think about what computer you had in 99, lol) Dial up on AOL, that is how long ago it was. I myself get tired of hearing the "entitled" nomenclature, but expecting them to do this for nothing is just silly.

As would many. The good news is, there's a strong likelihood that it's coming. The job posting for remastering old games had been up for a good while before the Starcraft announcement, and I expect that they went after Starcraft first primarily for the Korean competitive market. I'm 100% certain that Diablo is next on the remaster team's list.

They'll probably have to wait for the Necromancer to fail to fix the systemic flaws in D3, though, before announcing it.

I hope so, but I doubt it might happen.

Warcraft was for the most of time the "favourite child" and Diablo the "black sheep".

Well, a Warcraft 3 remaster might also be in the works, but the game is more recent and so not quite as desperately in need of an update. They know people want D2, though.

This attitude towards Diablo did not exist until Blizzards mind blowed after WOW moneys started rolling in....

Agree with Mand too, D2 remake will sell like crazy. I would rather have Warcraft 4 than a remake of 3. Needs a higher unit cap, etc.

Warcraft 4 won't happen. They said back in like, 2006, that they saw World of Warcraft as how they tell the Warcraft story moving forward. Its success and the decline of RTS as a genre make it an extraordinarily hard sell. You'll see a Starcraft 4 before a Warcraft 4.

Really excited for this. I'm so glad they didn't try and remake SC1/BW into the SC2 engine or it would have ruined the entire thing.
User Maps Settings games will hopefully be revitalized, even though current SC:BW online seems more active than SC2 tongue.gif

So is the actual HD remaster not going to be free then?

You should get it for free if you're one of those people like me who ended up paying for it multiple times because of lost CDs... >_>
