Oh give us a break, it was the first time any of us got to cover the launch of a Diablo game. And hey, we did manage to spotlight five mobile games that have almost completely nothing in common with Blizzard's game.

Thanks, This Could Hurt!

My Compliments to Those Who Made This Could Hurt So Good
