ok i have to confess to my infidelity. I played Dungeon Siege 2 instead of Diablo 2 lately. But the more I played it the more I think it is just Diablo 2 in 3d. From the skill tree, gameplay to the items it is the same. Except the graphics is beautiful, rather than the soul crushing 2D 800x600 res in Diablo2.

And then I watched the 'making of' video of Dungeon Siege 2 and they keep refusing to acknowledge the elephant in the room. Instead they keep saying how they want to make Dungeoan Siege 1 fans happy blah blah blah. OBVIOUSLY every single one of the developers played Diablo 2 long enough to carbon copy everything into Dungeon Siege 2, and OBVIOUSLY the fans want Diablo 2 in 3D, hence the result.

Dungeon siege had less depth than D2, prettier, but... not the famously well developed (not speaking code) game blizzard put out.

Dungeon Siege is the type of game a company thinks is "well developed," and then they add "polish" by adding gameplay. Blizzard go for gameplay, THEN code.

because BNet is pretty gay, and you obviously didn't read the first post thoroughly.

I was talking to a mate of mine who mentioned there were some interesting ruined buildings in the Adelaide Hills close to my house. So I thought what the hell, take the dog for a walk, check it out.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=e...,0.004646&z=18

Turns out the ruins are what's left of the main buildings of a 19th-century nursery and garden complex. Copypaste:
Quote:
This nursery was the leading commercial nursery in South Australia during the late 19th century. In 1854, 68 acres of land was purchased with subsequent acquisitions increasing the property to nearly 500 acres. The nursery was formally established in 1875 and included shade-houses, glass and hot houses, 300 varieties of orchids, 600 varieties of roses and 90 acres of fruit trees, including 500,000 apple, plum and cherry trees, 100,000 orange trees and 100,000 vines. They also specialised in rare and exotic plants. Two major storms in 1913 caused irreparable damage to the Nursery from which it never recovered.
So where am I going with this? Only to say that the whole place gave me a massive Diablo 2 Act II deja vu trip. All I had to do was blot out the gum trees (and I'll be honest, there are a few) in the background and hum desert.mp3, and I was there. Seriously, I was drumming Uelmen's desert percussion riff with my hands on my thighs as I walked around.

You had your standard ruined buildings:





The overgrown broken terraces, with what looks like a cordyline standing in for the desert palm. (Someone must have removed the corpse of the Act II merc impaled on the pole at left):





Any second now a horde of shuffling zombies oozing plague is going to come around one of these corners:





There was an intricate network of ruined trenches and pipes that must once have been the nursery's water system. I was looking for the sign that said Sewers Level 1.





The sun started going down, and through an archway a few metres away from where I was standing, the last rays of the sun were illuminating the most welcome of features: a well. (cue gulping sound, health going up)




Next time I'm taking my Ipod with Act II theme music.



Guess you had to be there

Started a skellymancer a few weeks ago, up to 56 atm, Act 3 NM. Still great fun, especially since I kept all my old gear mules so I'm at +13 summoning skills.
