Fallout man asks Blizzard for forgiveness

For calling Diablo III "conservative".

Fallout 3 production director Ashley Cheng has asked for forgiveness from Blizzard for calling its StarCraft and Diablo updates "conservative".

In a post on his blog, Cheng said he was "disappointed" both games were less ambitious than he had hoped for.

"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," said Cheng.

"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."

Following a bit of Internet furore, Cheng has posted an update on the blog entry. "Dear Blizzard," it reads, "Please forgive me. XOXO, Ash". Poor old Ash.
