No snow, no rain, not even clouds on most days. 5°C - 20°C these days and probably won't change much for the rest of the year. Such is the boring weather we have in southern California.

That's Gotta Hurt

The Djinn looks too tiny to occupy four squares. I hate it when they force every faction to have three large units even though some of them aren't that large.

Skill Wheel

Some skills' prerequisites are just insane. For something as useless as Mana Burst, you need to sink 11 points into three other schools which otherwise contribute NOTHING specific to Demon Lords. Hey, at least make some efforts to make all the skills at least somewhat useful and obtainable.

I think the earlier posters have used up all the imaginable words of praise :)

One problem, though: the really long descriptions can't be displayed in full, such as Mark of the Damned. A scroll bar may be needed.

Bravo, jeff! Your dedication is truly remarkable. Will you be porting it to H5 if there's a campaign editor? ;-)

The Demo Summary: Fans vs Critics

"I'm not surprised that the 'review sites' are so favorable. I remember all the good-to-great reviews H4 got." Yep, most site reviews of H4 were quite positive. Gamespot, Gamespy, etc. awarded it something like 8-9 out of 10 (which I would consider well-deserved) despite listing the lack of MP suppo...

Ubisoft to Drop Starforce

"Angelspit, sorry to rant, but why do you always misspell 'mentioned'? :)"

He's probably influenced by the French spelling of the word, "mentionner" and its conjugations.

I think the Treants are now officially the funniest looking creatures in HoMM history, defeating HIV's chicken on fire by a landslide. :|

Totally fell for it (the first one today). Maybe because I can't wait to see how things turn out from here :evil:

Heroes V Music for Download (updated)

I love the Haven Theme most, hands down. It is epic and simply resonates. Opera rocks :) The Academy Theme is basically the old Main Theme (which I think has the best melody of all four tracks) sandwiched between an opening and an end that sound more like they belong to Inferno. Still, the middle pa...

Heroes V Preview

There's obviously a difference between 1 dragon with 1000HP and 1000 peasants with 1HP :) Peasants die off quickly but the dragon can hold on much longer (and recover after battle).

The Producer and the King Speak

So far, the one piece of music that I really loved in H5 is the magnificant haven theme (which happens to be operatic). The intro music is pretty good as well. Again we are seeing some H4 bashing here. I thought the (IMO very nice) H4 music was a return to H2 style after the orchestral H3 music? And...

I was hoping they'd take this occasion to unify the colour scheme of DMoMM forum with the rest. That beige-yellow-ochre combination hurt my eyes.

Another typo: disrupting ray will make defense go "lower", not "lover" :)

Light Magic

The so called "light magic" and "dark magic" here are mainly buff and debuff spells respectively. So Bloodlust suits "light magic" better.

If there's no picture for summon creatures yet, maybe it's better to not anything at all.
