Original Diablo now on GOG

It's been spruced up a bit to run under Windows 10 in a collaborative effort between Blizzard and GOG. I'll be getting it later today. It's been a loooooong time.

Is there a reason you wanted me to use a magnifying glass?

lol

I was coming here with the same news.  Debating getting it.  You guys will have to let me know if it is worth it.

Hopefully the walking speed is faster than the original.  That was the most painful thing with that game.

Yeah, some of what makes it different was "fixed" by quality of life changes later.  Do you remember if you picked up gold, that took up space in your inventory?  5K per spot.   

Some years back I talked about a D1 mini tournament for kicks.  there was no one interested.

sounds like base game.

however sounds like a community patch/mod has some quality of life changes.

I forgot about the 5000 gold limit. That reminds me that I used to drop gold in town in piles of 5000 everywhere. I had all kinds of stuff laying around town.

The stuff persisted if you left it on the ground?  I didn't know that.

Yes, well, at least for single player it did.

Yeah, my warrior would leave spell books I couldn’t read and +magic gear around amongst other things.

Did you guys see warcraft and Warcraft 2 are coming to gog soon as well? I’m excited about war2...

Okay, I give up.  What it GOG?  I went to the website and it's all in Latin or something.

https://www.gog.com/ Used to be called good old games.


They used to just sell old stuff. Now sell newer things too. You pay money. You get a game but no drm. That’s massive for some people. For the old games they include PDFs of the manuals similar to what you got in the old box. Old stuff has dosbox all configured so tested and easy to work on newer computers.

They sell some stuff hard or removed from other sites.

I bought a lot of my old games in 2012 when they had an “end of world” sale when that end of calendar thing came up

Okay, that makes sense.  The link above took me to a page in some foreign language.  Now the same link takes me to a page in English.
