Blizzard Downplaying Diablo III

Manager tells such thing. Its incredible! They say "don't take candy", but as we know the more you tell "don't", it becomes more desirable.
Blizzard Downplaying Diablo III of the Day: Blizzard’s Diablo III is one of the most-anticipated games of the year, and repeated delays have only made fans hungrier to get their hands on it.
One Blizzard community manager, Bashiok, is worried that there’s no way a game could live up to all that hype, so he’s taken to the forums to manage gamers expectations by telling them that Diablo III isn’t that awesome.
“Stop thinking about how awesome this game could be. Just imagine it’s a new M. Night Shyamalan movie. SureSixth Sense was amazing and Unbreakable had it’s moments, but this right here is the sequel to The Village,” Bashiok wrote.
Although he’s got a point — the hype for D3 may have created an impossible bar for the game to clear — it’s unusual to see a game company’s public relations team telling fans to be less excited about a new release.
Maybe the M. Night Shyamalan twist to this story is that Diablo III will be the most amazing thing Blizzard has ever created. Either that, or Deckard Cain was dead all along.
Barring any further delays, we’ll find out sometime in the second quarter of 2012
