Ok... so you did charge a little too steep of a price for DII-RES, but thus far its been worth it.
 
1st impressions, graphics are greatly improved for creatures and animations, stuttering has been repaired, environmental graphics have been improved a good amount while still maintaining the "vintage" feel of the game. Sound is greatly improved over the original, loving the Hi-Fi audio (my musicians ears thank you).
 
Time to throw some Start Trek Next Generation on Netflix, grab a soda, and enjoy some retro gaming!
 
Thank you Blizzard!

    They really learned a lot from Warcraft 3 Reforged. I think they could fix that title if they wanted to and probably would make a lot off of it if they fixed it. As for Diablo 2 I just love seeing the cutscenes redone. Now I want to see Diablo redone so the whole series is in 3D and fairly modern.

    I just dunno if they are back.  They just keep rehashing old games.  Like Wow classic, i feel like this will just taper off. 
     
    Hard to imagine them working on a new original title at this point.

    Looks like maybe review bombing happened since a lot of them seem the same issues if you can call it that. A lot are 20 year old game plays like a 20 year old game or that you lose the LAN play which most games over the last decade haven't really had a LAN option.

    My friends said they saw bugs while playing. As an example, mobs do not react to character attacks.
