Yeah, I don't mean to make it a bigger thing than it needs to be.  I dig the Conan the Barbarian artwork feel of the oldschool design, but I really don't care if they feel like updating the character design to make it more "modern" or whatever to appeal to a wider demographic.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Fair enough. I am sure when they remake Conan the movie series it will be similarly changed.
I do understand the need to make sure that female gamers do not feel objectified in this day and age. I am not trying to suggest they should not clean it up. Just that some people would prefer a full nostalgia version without anything but updated graphics. So it is like it was fresh out of the box. It's why Rome Remastered will have options to get rid of any of the new stuff you do not like for the most part. I seem to remember some rome1 hubub about naked gauls not having their doodles right back then. A mod put them back in. History as it should be. As near to the truth as possible. Options are the key.

I pre-ordered this with my blizzard balance since it's not costing me any real money.  From what I've seen, it looks great.  I just hope they change it to have individual loot.   I know some people love the thrill of trying to out-click other players, but I found it an exercise in frustration, especially when bots can exploit it.
