    Diablo

    OH NO DEMONS.

    Without starting some sort of essay and/or foaming at the mouth over so many moments of rage in the past (I'll save that for later), all I will say is that this game is great, and is one hell of a ride in MP.

    So, uh... 'acquire' a copy and let's play. You know, and uh, kill stuff.

    (I am of course referring to the original game here; I'll look into getting the sequel at some point though. Although I also said that some 10 or 11 years ago too.)

    Other than that, discuss!

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    RE: Diablo

    Funny you should mention Diablo. A friend of my sister gave me a copy some many years ago and I haven't touched it since. Never really got into it, though I happened to come across it while cleaning my room. It now sits with my other outdated games like Worms 2 and Jane's Longbow. I don't know about playing it anytime soon, especially with my graphics card out of commission (doesn't matter if Diablo graphics are weak) and my hard drive needing replacement ala warranty.

    All I remember is something about a guitar weapon being "all the rage" back in the day, and my sister's friend going out of his way (voluntarily) to get it for me.

    RE: Diablo

    So as you'd expect, I'm still messing around with this game and stumbled upon a mod for it:
    http://www.moddb.com/mods/diablo-the-awakening

    It's a pretty good mod for a game that wasn't really designed with such things in mind, but god damn is it hard! Even the earlier enemies require a pasting to put down, and armour items practically disintegrate if you get surrounded.

    Somehow it still holds up and doesn't feel cheap and nasty (with the exception of a couple of Town NPCs that are quite frankly, just too big to fit in properly), and best of all... it has MP support.

    And now I'm off to get kicked around again by only a small pack of Corpse Bows.
