Blast from the past...

So I am currently playing Tribes:Ascend and Path of Exile beta.   I have played several characters to max level of the content and have gotten as much enjoyment out of the game as I can considering the characters will be wiped.  So I was looking for something to give me a fix for a week or two waiting for Diablo 3 to release.  (Say what you want about D3, but regardless of how good or bad it will be, I have ALOT of irl friends and family who will be playing D3... so that is the massive appeal to me.)

So, to get that temporary game fix, I decided I would dig out my old D1 and D2 cd's and give them a playthrough, just for kind of a blast from the past nostalgia type feel.  And upon popping the Diablo 1 CD into my computer, I found it quite halarious what I saw on the setup menu.

Just goes to show how old Diablo 1 was in terms of the computer and internet age.  I was 11 or 12 when I purchased Diablo 1.  My dad stopped by a tire repair place to get a hole in his tire patched up after I had purchased the game.  So I sat in the chair at the car shop with my Diablo 1 box in my hands just staring at the pictures.  My next door neighbors had been playing Diablo 1 for a few weeks so I knew first hand how awesome it was.  It was my first real Gamer's Computer Game.  Before Diablo 1 all I had played is educational shit like "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego" and "Spell It 3".  So that's what I mean by Gamer's game. :)

    Without the internet, imagine what would happen to porn?  Unimaginable.

    Ahh, I remember our telecom company implementing a fixed phone rate for dial-up internet just around the time Diablo I was out. You can imagine what that meant to the gamers among us. :) 

     

    When I think of Diablo 1, I think of:

    * The Butcher (one of the mobs that scared me most on first encounter)

    * The Voice of Deckard Cain (poor man's Connery as your guide to the inferno!)

    * Matt Uelmen's music (wonderfully atmospheric as always, I dig his BC music for WOW, too)

    * Cow Level (OMG shut up I've seen it! :P)

    * Wirt (poor poor thing)

    * Bow of Zest! (yeah, yeah, totally random; I just love its name :P)

    * Diablo (get him off me, get him off!)

    * Ears galore! (oh, the Bounty Hunters channel, trafficking in ears on an anti-PK mercenary campaign!)

    * Duping (come on, you tried it at least once! :P)

    * Cheats and cheats-for-anti-cheating! (Yep, a plague upon online Diablo: Full Invulnerability; PK InvuInerabilitiy; Invisibility / ghost players; Town PK, you name it...)
