It's been over 12 years since Diablo II released, so naturally a few of us are writhing with excitement now that a sequel is upon us. Strangely, Blizzard is now telling us to be less excited. I'm stumped.
The Blizzard Community Manager to end them all, Bashiok, has spoken about people's expectations of Diablo III, and they are a bit concerning. His latest quote started off like this:
I too worry that we won't be able to meet the expectations people have built up for themselves. Part of my job is managing people's expectations, so... eh... stop it. Stop thinking about how awesome this game could be.
Just imagine it's a new M. Night Shyamalan movie.
Sure Sixth Sense was amazing and Unbreakable had it's moments, but this right here is the sequel to The Village ... or The Happening ... or Signs ... or any of the movies besides the two I first mentioned. So just like, lower those expectations, but still definitely buy the game please, and everything will be just fine. K?
