John Funk writes: "Some people are here for Wrath of the Lich King, and some people are here for StarCraft 2 - some people are certainly here for both. But let's not kid ourselves, here: almost everybody here at Blizzcon '08 wants to get their hands on the playable demo build of Diablo III. It's the gleaming crown jewel of the convention, even beside two stellar titles with massive, devoted fanbases in their own right.
I've been lucky enough to get the chance to play through the demo level twice now - once as a Barbarian, and once as the newly-announced Wizard class. Even with just this one level, in an obviously incomplete build of the game, there's something that's become crystal-clear to me (and hundreds of others here at Blizzcon):
Diablo III is going to be a masterpiece."
