I still have the boxed copy, but my pc doesn't have a drive  :lol

I haven’t played diablo 1 :larry

Best one (by the standards of when I was launched) and very different from 2 and 3.

SP playthrough was actually challenging and the game was a lot lot lot darker in tone then what blizzard has done since

Oh shit. Did they put Diablo 2 up as well?
No Blizzard still sells and supports that through battle.net.

There were also rumors they were considering a StarCraft like remaster of II. But they weren't going to do the first game, so GOG asked in and they decided to actually do it.

This is partially "remade" to support modern resolutions and stuff like they did to StarCraft. They had to redraw all the sprites or the resolutions would squash and stretch them, they aren't just sized up.

They aren't totally redrawn like StarCraft Remastered, they're the original art as a base.

My memory is fuzzy but didn't Diablo 1 have Corpse Runs? You die - you respawn in Tristram and have to run back to your corpse for Gold/ Items.

For 100% either Diablo 1 or Diablo 2 had this but I can't remember was it introduced in D1, D1: Hellfire or D2?

IIRC, you only had one life in single player. So lots of save scumming. Also, lots of leaving piles of gold around town.

the expansion wasn't made by blizzard, it was sierra. i remember there being some bad blood there so that might making licensing their work difficult.

too bad, the monk was a cool class.

Also you can pirate it and make it work. There's a thread about using the "retail" version to make it work.

Damn. This is one of the best crpgs I've ever played. Haven't died yet but it's incredible. It's also great for short sessions. You can literally play it as long or short as you want to.

Haven't gotten quest for the butcher yet. Hope I didn't miss it.

You did.

Most of the quests you get are randomly assigned when you start a new game. Only way you can get the Butcher is if you start another playthrough and

I got a bow for my rogue that has knockback and it's incredibly OP since it even knocks bosses. Absolutely destroyed the Butcher and barely even got touched fighting King Leoric.

I hope I didn’t pass the butcher quest. Since it’s my first time playing I hope I didn’t just walk past the dude.

You misunderstand.

On "new game"/game creation, you have a set amount of quests. You may or may not have that dead body in your game. From what you're saying, you may not have had that body in your game, thereby the Butcher quest isn't in your characters run.

You'll have to remake a new character to see if you get that quest.

I didn't misunderstand at all. Never mind.

Anyways, only issue with this game is the lack of a way to easily find loot on the ground. There needs to be an alt high light.

This game is so fucking legit. As someone who always enjoys playing Diablo single player it’s fucking amazing as an so experience.

Game really is just over if you die. Dope. Gotta invest in town portals and lots of heal items as a rogue.

On floor 4.

edit: Yeahhhhh, I never got the Butcher quest. Just started up a Warrior game just to see what happens and it's obvious that you can interact with the dying guy. No way I would have missed it.

that one might have some more difficult rights issues as it was developed by Climax Studios and published by EA who Blizzard sold "all console rights" to even though EA only did it for PS1 in the end

it is a unique version of the game though versus a more traditional port, was basically created from scratch in many ways just adhering to the original game rules/assets/etc., has two-player co-op, changes how the story is presented completely

While Diablo 2 improved almost everything from the first game, it also began to streamline a lot of stuff. In a way, Diablo 2 is the starting point for a lot of modern game philosophies where games are very consciously designed around gameplay loops that are built to addict the player. Diablo 1 is very elegant compared to it's contemporaries (especially on PC) but still feels like a hardcore game.

Went back and quickly installed D2 LOD and played the first few quests.

Yeah, I think D1 is my favorite Diablo game. It ticks all of my boxes. D2 is the game with all the loot and flash, but less substance and mystery. I've also not used a single potion yet and have been relying level ups for heals. D1 truly is da gawd.
