Heart of Winter rocks
« on: February 25, 2008, 04:35:48 AM »
Fellow Diablo II fans will understand: I used to play D2, and when the expansion, Lord of Destruction, was out, I was head over heels with glee.

Now, with IWD: HoW, and joinable NPCs, it is even better. Not to mention high screen resolution, Alt key for highlighting, and so on - in other words, everythingthat LoD gave Diablo II, HoW gives to IWD.

Buy it. :)

Wouldn't surprise me to hear that you modded D2 in some way as well.  ;D

Yeah, big D2 fan myself, but never got around to LoD. I loved the gameplay - Necromancer was the ultimate uber-summoner. I was cackling as skeleton mages and warriors followed me around. But most of all, I loved the movies. Blizzard movies were simply the best - gorgeous graphics, great narration..

oh yes, IWD:HoW. Will check it out sometime.

"Right. I had to get up at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down at the mill and pay the mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our mother and father would kill us and dance on our graves singing Halleluja.

Great. Now I have to go and finish pimping out my Frost-Zealot who's been stewing ever since I started my last PS:T game.
Pindleskin runs, here I come.

What's the comparison between HoW and LoD, by the way? Just the fact that they're both expansions, or does HoW improve on the original game in actual gameplay? (as I think LoD did with the siege lines and the friendly Barbarian soldiers.)

It's got a dragon. Aaand the usual - a new city, an intriguing tale(woven with the original IWD events), new monsters and animations.

Oh yeah, I had a lot of fun with D2 back in the day. I'd drag friends in so we could have a good ole time blasting everything to smithereens (we'd be an army of sorceresses... ahhh good times).
NPC favorites:

Xan
Kivan
Solaufein
Tsujatha

Note that they are all elves <3
