Question about Heroes VI streamlining of resources

As we all know, Heroes VI reduced the number of in-game resources from 7 (gold, wood, ore, crystal, gems, sulfur, mercury) to 4 (gold, wood, ore, crystal). Long-time fans are pretty unhappy with the change but mostly agree with the developers that the decision to streamline resources eliminates some...

Yeah. I have the Heroes II: Gold Edition from GOG as well and the music used is from the original Heroes II release, not the POL expansion. You could always get the Heroes Compendium and run a separate installation. I have this version and can verify that it uses the POL music. It IS rather pricey t...

"Maybe once I hear more about it."

Bundle sounds interesting. I'll probably get it if they throw in a few neutrals. As long as it's more than a map pack with a new hero.

I liked the H6 hero portraits. I know some have criticized the art style as being rather cookie-cutter (i.e. they are all at a 3/4ths angle with similar expressions). But I thought the portraits were pleasant to look at.

Congrats. I still have my copy installed. But that's because I'm too lazy to delete it. I haven't touched the damn thing since last July.

The Current State of Things

Love the graphics, sound, music, and story. Definitely seems like an improvement from H5. Played both betas. I dislike the areas of control. While it will undoubtedly make multiplayer games quicker, it also forces players into head-on battles by removing a lot of guerrilla tactics that could be used...

And what dream, i don't remember that... I think he's referring to the cut-scene that appears after you convert the Necropolis to a Haven in the second tutorial scenario. In the dream, Slava walks with his wife in a courtyard. She mentions that she must leave the family to find her brother. After S...

Like Tears in Rain

A very very good article. The information about M&M X is especially juicy as it sounds like the game would have tied together all the loose plot points in the M&M and Heroes series.

Excellent summary. Well put.

Alas that the in-game cutscenes were not so clear and concise.

Did bad luck ever work in Heroes 1 and 2? I don't seem to remember ever seeing it. I always assumed that bad luck was just no luck.

By the way, what's going on at 0:51? Is that a city that's transitioning between Necropolis and Stronghold?

7) Elrath killed Laszlo Perfectly stated. And yes, Laszlo's death was indeed one of the more confusing and stupid aspects of the storyline. Elrath exploding Laszlo through gateways due to Freyda's screams? I really really hope that H6's storyline will be as mature and complex as it seems on paper. ...

More polish is always a good thing. Did they specifically state that the game is being pushed back so the developers can work on the gameplay, or is that just assumed? Working in games marketing and advertising myself... I know that sometimes games are delayed simply to avoid competing against a riv...
