You want it darker: Diablo remade inside Diablo III

It is the future, the year 1996. The age of serially abusing the left mouse button has begun - for Diablo is born. Soon, you will be able to transport your haggard soul back to that more innocent age of mass slaughter, blasphemous themes and venal kleptomania. Diablo 3 [official site]'s 20th Anniversary event/patch kicks off later this month, and they've only gone and remade…

A New Hope? Unreal-Powered KOTOR Fan Remake

Feels like it's far too soon to be remaking Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but a) they've rebooted the Spider-Man movies 48 times in 18 months and b) KOTOR is, in fact, 13 years old oh god I'm so ancient how did this happen help help. So maybe the time isn't too un-wrong for someone to take a crack at making one of…

Remember Citadel: Dev Livestreams And A Fan Remake

Happy birthday, SHODAN! The puckish AI with delusions of godhood turned 20 on Monday (as did System Shock, I guess), and would be flattered by what some are doing to celebrate and glorify her. Firstly, a group of System Shock's creators got together to stream the Looking Glass classic and gas about the dear old gal and their game. If watching isn't enough, (another) project…

D/Generation To Return! An HD Remake On The Way

I'm not saying I cause all the good things in the world. I leave it to others to accurately observe this. So it will have to be someone else who gives me my deserved credit for the exciting news that West Coast Software has gained the license to remake D/Generation. I mean, I mentioned it only three weeks ago on RPS, as an example of…

What The Duck: More Unnecessary 8-Bit Retromancy

Look here, I liked Duck Tales - cartoon and game alike - well enough when I were a lad, but do we really need to pillage every last dusty coin from the tomb of ancient videogaming? Disney's already having the Castle of Illusion remade in spangle-vision, and now another anthropomorphic animal platformer is getting tarted up and resold to people who can remember when all…

Voulez-Vous Un Remake De Flashback?

Flashback est un jeu vidéo de 1992 par Delphine, et est le best-seller de fabrication française de jeu de tous les temps. Beaucoup ont demandé à plusieurs reprises une nouvelle version de celui-ci, après le troisième match a été annulé. Je me souviens que la recherche Flashback magnifique mais étant légèrement irritant pour jouer, donc je ne suis probablement pas la bonne personne pour écrire…

From Bright Skies: Dark Reign Redux

Back in 1997, there was a strategy game released that went by the name of Dark Reign. I'm fairly sure I played the demo but I can't be certain because I just played the demo again and drew a blank. The reason I'm playing the demo is that it's just been re-released, remade even, to run through Silverlight as Dark Reign Redux. The demo is…

Rene-made: Fan-Created C&C FPS Spawns

Renegade-X is a reworking of the original, awful Command & Conquer: Renegade, Westwood's ambitious FPS with RTS acne. I'm downloading the just released short single-player preview, “Operation Black Dawn”, from the official torrent, and we'll make brain thinks into words about its UDK-based goodness another day. In the meantime, here's the download link and video, strategically placed below.

Half-Life Dreamcast Gets A PC Port

Way back in the year 2000 I had a very brief stint on Dreamcast magazine, DC-UK. I won't bore you with the details of my quick departure: just imagine the most dramatic escape scene you can, then double it. But while I was there I happened across a preview disc with Half-Life on it. I say preview, the damn thing was nearly complete and I…

Cock A Hoot: Leisure Suit Larry HD

As Andrew mentions below, HD remakes serve to make games look like your rose-tinted, 1920x1080 memories of them. Trying to play through the original MDK2 now is a tough feat, so having it remade for modern, hi-def eyes is a splendid thing. But the original Leisure Suit Larry? That looks like a pile of pixels even in my most optimistic memory. EGM are reporting that…
