    Wew summer 2019 for WoW Classic is horrendous. Hopefully there are some actually good announcements tomorrow.
    Don't fuck this up Blizzard. Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 remaster. That's all the world is asking for.

    All I want is a remaster of Diablo 1 (no, the Diablo 3 thing doesn't count).
    sometimes less is more and Diablo 1 was simple and fun because of that.

    Wow! From bow to a semi-automatic rifle, I'm digging this new Ashe. xD

    Looking forward to Warcraft III: Reforge DotA version. xD

    Loved the new character for HotS. The engine still sucks though.

    Yikes, Diablo on mobile? I hope this won't be the end of that franchise. I hope it'll be a good game.

    Blizzard still amazes me with their cinematics. They should make a movie or something with their cinematic team. No live-action. Just pure CGI cinematics. That'd be awesome.

    They show the old models in the trailer, and they definitely don't hold up so well by today's standards. No matter how much you crank the resolution up everything is still quite blocky, massive polygons. Fair game to remaster stuff from the early 2000s I think, and WC3 was released 2002. Also it's a good way to revive the player base.

    Additionally I think WC3 caught lightning in a bottle, and today's Blizzard staff wouldn't be able come close to replicating such a great RTS with WC4.

    Before the BlizzCon started they made a blog post which widely was regarded as "No Diablo 4 on BlizzCon this year", I'm pretty sure there is no D4 announcement this year. A couple of weeks ago they said that there're 4 Diablo projects in the making. They already revealed the D3 port for NX and now the mobile game, we can be pretty sure D4 is one of the projects which means one unannounced project left. Dosn't looks to bad for your D2 remaster, maybe they announce it on the Con :)

    Mostly to bring old games to modern hardware. There's generations who haven't played it.

    it's like companies forgot how to make new games they just keep making the same games over and over or remastering them over and over ea, ubisoft, blizzard even Nintendo are doing it. gaming is starting to become a big joke these days filled with nothing but remasters and rehashes and crappy indies and weeb games chocking steam to death. i have a 1080 ti that barely gets used because of all this shit going on and i'm getting tired of it. :glare:

    Destiny Two being free is great but just a fair warning it is an 80 gigabit install.

    It also shares your battlenet info with activision (which i call bullshit, they've been doing it for years now secretly, i refuse to believe they haven't been).

    Still though, free game for mah new computer, and I admit, it looks crazy good graphically.

    I heard about it sharing your account info with Activision. That does not bother me. Aye a free game is almost always good. As for graphics I have a mid range pc so it will look alright, as long as it plays fine then im happy.

    Off-topic, but I just got the Acer Predator Helios 300, 2018 edition this past wednesday, and I've been amazed how some games look when run on proper high end hardware.

    On-topic, aye, couldn't give a shit about sharing info with Acti because, like I said, i'm sure they've been doing it secretly for years anyways.

    I am actually shocked and embarrassed by the Diablo fans who are lashing out about the mobile diablo game. Can people really BE any more entitled?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I remember when game companies didn't release a new game every year and actually took time and effort into making new and innovative games, or actually pushing a franchise or genre forward rather than rehashing the same game in a different skin and calling it "Revolutionary!". It's people like you who expect a brand new game from the same IP year after year that is actually part of the problem and forcing companies to have strict deadlines and releasing unfinished and unpolished games.

    I for one love remasters/remakes because it allows me to go back to games I loved but find it hard to go back to due to the very dated graphics or mechanics, or whatnot. It also gives game developers to give us something to do/play while waiting (patiently) for the next new big game to come out. This also includes mobile games :) - Especially if it helps fund their next big game (Hopefully Diablo 4)

    Considering they've been waiting 4 years for new Diablo content, and got a pay to win, microtranscation filled, reskin of a shite korean mobile game..... I think the anger is well justified.
