While Fallout 3 producer Ashley Cheng (not pictured) was impressed with the Diablo III gameplay footage, he was also "disappointed." And not only with Diablo III, but also the new Starcraft. That would make his feelings, say, sadly bittersweet? On his personal blog, Cheng blogged his personal feelings about:

I must say I am disappointed that Blizzard has stayed on the conservative side in terms of design with their updates to Diablo and Starcraft. Diablo will be interesting since World of Warcraft has a lot of Diablo-like qualities. I have no doubt, however, that they will be incredibly fun, addictive and polished games. Blizzard is the top of the class when it comes to game development - nobody does it better.

Man, why's everyone so down Diablo III? There's that rainbow petition and now this? Blizzard cannot win, like never ever ever. Hit the jump for Cheng's post in full:

Diablo III announced. Nice. It looks pretty amazing, especially the gameplay video. Loved the destructible environments.

In fact, World of Warcraft is currently banned from any computer I own due to its highly addictive qualities. Its easily one of my favorite RPGs.

I know they are working on another Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game. I hope its World of Starcraft.

UPDATE:

Dear Blizzard,

Please forgive me.

XOXO,

Ash

@Halosucks3:

Truly. Thus the satire of your monicker, right?

Bungie got ripped to no end for supposedly playing it conservative with Halo 3 by vocal and pervasive commenters, so why were people so soft on Starcraft and Diablo III for seeming playing it even safer?
