    CNN reports:
    So what do you guys think?! I think it sounds pretty damn stupid. "Happy fulfilling quests"? Diablo's supposed to be about the devil, not about "Bambi"! Post your comments here.

    It's still supposedly gory and demonic with a load of blood.

    To compensate for it, Disney'll probably cut out the gory stuffs and make the whole thing abridged, like the so-called 'fairy tales'.

    Nah, I might be able to dig up the article. Lemme look for it...

    Amantis: It DOES sound like they're planning to make the whole game "K" rated or something. I'm wondering who that's going to affect the game. It sounds pretty stupid.

    i don't know if i want to believe that disney's going to own Diablo. I don't think i'd enjoy fighting big goofys or winnie the pooh, i'd much rather stick a spell or two in a blood spewing demon. lol
    i doubt seriously disney would bother with diablo, they have a million other kiddy video games out there, why would they bother with one that includes blood, demons, and everything not nice. lol
    any reasons out there?

    Well, the Diablo line is one of the best selling video game series out there. Even with the 1.whatever million that Disney's buying it for, they'll be making a lot of money off of this.

    I guess we'll find out in a couple years if that's the direction that Disney decides to head with the game. Who knows? Maybe they'll just add Bambi like the article says. That wouldn't be THAT bad...

    lol, i've decided to not believe you Badger, it's too big of a no no for Disney to buy a demony game. Hope that's okay :)

    you go ahead and try to convince others though.... :p

    they will because there disney. they cant possibly have an ounce of violence in anything they do directly. i know they have parts in movies that have been rated R adn what not. Disney is just the wrong company for a job i mean its like saying would you want a little kid to direct a movie like T3 or a highly paid professional. Disney has no experiance in making games what so ever. The only thing they know how to do is to ammuse ppl with little kiddy rides.
