Quake HD Remake?


With all of the HD remakes coming out lately, I started wondering what games I would actually like to see get a remake. Everyone has been hoping the Blizzard will announce a Diablo 2 HD at Blizzcon this year, and that would definitely be towards the top on my list. I just finished playing DOOM, which was… kind of a remake…? I enjoyed my time quite a lot and look forward to going back to play it on a harder difficulty. That got me thinking… why not Quake?

I’ve long considered Quake to be one of the best games ever made. The leap from the Doom engine to the idTech Quake engine was one of the most important moves in computer gaming. Just imagine where we’d be without Mr. John Carmack and his toolbox of wonderfulness!

I think I could guarantee my $30-45 to a Quake HD game, but that’s not the real question. The real question is whether or not they could count on your money?

Diablo 2 HD Is Unofficial


Despite the fact that the domain exists (I refuse to link it since it is unofficial), Diablo 2 HD is not official if you ask Blizzard. That does not mean that they are not making the game (or REmaking in this case), but it does mean that you shouldn’t get your hopes up. I mean, I could go and register, but that doesn’t mean that it will be made.

What is probably the final nail in the coffin, the WHOIS info states the registrar was GoDaddy. Pretty sure Blizzard doesn’t mess with that. But, Blizzcon runs from November 4-5 this year, so there’s always hope. Perhaps the domain was just created by some entrepreneurial individual.

Sniper Elite 4 Pre-Order Details


More than 4 months before full release of the game (and well before Black Friday and the holidays when I expected it to happen), Sniper Elite 4 pre-order details have emerged… somewhat.

Steam has the deluxe version that includes the season pass for $89 right now. This video also says that all pre-orders get the “kill Hitler” DLC that is always an option with Sniper Elite games.

It does look very good, and Op and I are greatly looking forward to this game, but I think we both are leery about pre-orders, especially season passes where we don’t know what is included. I don’t know… do you think it’s worth it?
