Starcraft Remastered

Postby DjchunKfunK » Mon Mar 27, 2017 8:24 am

So Blizzard was indeed working on remastering one of their old games. However it's not the one everyone was perhaps hoping for.



Due out this summer and includes LAN support 4K resolutions, updated graphics and modern online play.

Now come on Blizzard do a proper Diablo remaster, or even a Diablo 2 one.

Who really wants a Diablo 1 remaster? It's a crap torchlight. Hell, do we really even want a Diablo 2 one? Fucking Lost Vikings 3! Best investment of time!



Starvraft... meh... but if only EA would do this for the C&C games instead of the totally doesn't work shitty collection they put out :(

It feels odd for a developer to make an HD remaster of a game when they're still supporting its sequel. It's like they don't have confidence in Starcraft 2.

A Diablo 2 HD remaster would be a bad idea. I know people have a lot of fond memories of it, but it's positively antiquated with a horrible interface. Yes it has a better campaign than Diablo 3, and you could argue for your favourite class, but the sequel is better in just about every other way. Now a remake would be a different story, but at that point you're probably spending too many resources on it for it to be justified. I like what Blizz are planning with Diablo 3, bringing D2's Necromancer class into the newer game, they could just do with some new story components to make it shine.

I would like a Diablo remake, I know there are better games as the genre has moved on, but I still think it would be a neat idea. What they did by adding that Diablo homage into D3 as just plain bad.

I'm not certain, but I think the original game is still more popular in South Korea. So maybe this is a way to continue supporting that pro scene.

I think a D2 remake would be very well received if it got the same treatment that StarCraft seems to be getting. People still play D2 after all. I've dipped into it myself from time to time for a quick single player session and even though a lot of it is clearly dated, it still feels like an overall satisfying game to play.

This could totally kill off the StarCraft 2 scene though.

I never actually tried that. Was it just a case of people expecting more from it?

It was literally just a 16 level dungeon made entirely from Diablo 3 assets; only with the original Diablo bosses, limited directional movement and a pixel style shader filter on top.

It was okay for a quick playthrough for an hour or so but that was it. It wasn't hard to expect a little more given how little went into making it.

It also only gave you blue loot so was a complete waste of time.

You can always try it next year as it is meant to be a yearly thing.

I didn't expect much from it when it was first announced and they didn't even manage to meet my lowered expectations.

Seems like I was correct in my assumption about South Korea.
