    Itd be nice to see the original on a mobile platform like an iPad - although getting an RTS to work well on a touchscreen is quite challenging

    Nice...another release without any creativity behind it. Seems to be all the rage recently to just re-release old-ish games made pretty for (way too often) full price.

    I've actually wanted to see this game visually updated. Although the classic is still fun to play.

    If only this was for Diablo 2 and there has been discussion in the past. The main issue fans have come up with is ratings. If they where to stick with the original design then the 4k version would have a 18 rating and if they made a more modest version a vocal group of the fans would be outraged. Personally I would be happy if they did remaster either way but also included pvp restriction that both parties have to agree and thereby remove the entire Hardcore tppk scene.

    While I love the fact that SC is getting a HD redux... D2 would be absolutely awesome in a redux. There are so many different character builds available with D2 versus D3. You get locked in more with D2, but that was the spirit of the game. Each build was a lot more tailored than D3. You picked your path and you lived with it. D3 allows too much respec of skills. You screw up, with a change of gear and stats you can pretty much reset you character. I want to relive the days when I could either go for a poison/bone spear necromancer or a summoner. A trap-assassin or a ranged one. A shouting barbarian, or one that throws axes or spears.

    Actually I played part of the seasonal quest event with the pixelated version of D1 style. I got sidetracked by a steam sale on Fallout4 so I never finished it. It was interesting, but somehow just didn't feel enough like D1 to keep me involved to the end. But again, I blame Fallout4 from keeping me engaged with it.

    No, but it was just D3 mechanics with ugly and D1-ish graphics on top. It was a nice tip of the hat to "the old guard" but something very different from a "proper" remake of D1.
