It is currently the eve of Diablo 3 and I have Diablo on the mind and was also looking for something to kill the last 24 hours, ailment so here you go. Over 9,000 hours in MS paint, bask in its glory. Seriously though, sorry it is way uglier than my previous submissions, I drew it without really expecting to submit it, but figured “what the hell” at least it is somewhat topical.
Since these floors were randomly generated, this is more of a “commentary” about how seemingly every single time the staircase to proceed would always be the very last room left to clear. This happens pretty much everywhere in the game for me, but it seemed particularly frequent in Act 1.
See also how the more people you are playing multiplayer with, the more likely it is that you’re stuck going through tiny one-at-a-time worm tunnels in Act II. Everything about Diablo 2 that wasn’t awesome was TERRIBLE.
Fallout 2 is my all-time favorite game and I’ve spent hundreds of hours playing it, nurse beating it dozens of times. Though I can recite where every important item in the game is located, all the buildings and locations I’ve deemed unimportant seem to have been wiped from my mind. Strangely enough, I managed to remember the exact layouts of building interiors much better than the actual design of the city. The reason I chose New Reno is because it is my favorite city and I would frequently use the Shark Club as my “house”. Since there were no homes in Fallout 2, that meant killing everyone there and putting my stuff on the shelves, then carefully positioning all my followers to look like they’re guarding the place.
Due to size constraints of the paper I was using, several of the buildings were cut off part-way or left off altogether (I know there was a large empty ?c?r?a?c?k? ?h?o?u?s?e? jet house somewhere). I had the hardest time remembering the far East side because I only ever went the for a short period.
This four-part New Reno sketch is really wonderful, and much better recall than I would have been able to manage despite my abiding love for Fallout 2. Really nicely done.
