The Daily Grind: Are you going to play Diablo 2 Resurrected?

One of the most interesting bits of BlizzConline 2021 to me was the reveal of Diablo 2 Resurrected. Yes, the rumors had ensured we all knew it was coming, but I was still surprised at the extent of it. I suppose I expected it to be another rushed junker like Warcraft 3 Remastered, or maybe even just a rerelease with a little bit of resolution-polish. Instead, it’s a serious-business overhaul that might actually be worthy of its pricetag.

The fact that I ever doubted Blizzard on this is probably worth a column of its own sometime, but I digress. I loved the original D2 and find myself looking forward to this. Then again, I also liked Diablo III, so I’d probably just play anything with “Diablo” on it. Buuuuuuut not enough to preorder. (There’s only one game getting preorder money from me this year, and it’s not from Blizz! Bonus points if you can guess what it is.)

So how about you: Are you going to play Diablo 2 Resurrected? Are you looking forward to it enough to preorder?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

For sure. Kind of wish they were coming up with a new expansion and class to and forking it off into its own thing but whatever. Will play this and wait for D 4 as well.

I will almost certainly play it since this remaster actually looks really good. However I don’t pre-order games unless I get to try them first in a beta. It’s never a wise decision to buy something blind.

I spent a thousand hours playing Diablo 2.

I watch movies based on the actors, writers, directors, producers. Games are the same way.

So yeah, no.

Not until it’s released.

I can’t play another arpg. I just feel the gameplay has worn itself out, kind of like the classic mmorpg. And while the nostalgia can be nice (like gaming during the golden age circa 1997), the fun will wear out fast because you know how everything works. What I need in games is innovation, because half the fun for me is figuring out how to play (especially with a friend in co-op). It seems like the Survival genre is one of the only genres that works for me these days. Maybe an open-world shooter here and there.

I’m going to guess an odd choice and say Disgaea 6?

I liked 3, but no, I’m pretty much done with ARPG’s at this point they are just too samey and lack the depth to hold my interest for more than a couple of minutes. I need more from games.

I’m not a big fan of 3 (although I did finish the campaign), but largely agree on ARPGs. Finishing Grim Dawn with 2 friends a couple months back was a slog.

Nah man I already have the game + 40bucks for a game I have. Also Warcraft 3 reforged is still nor forgotten or forgiven. That company is not getting my money anymore.

No I am not, but I’m sure plenty of people will.
