The second expansion Tribes of the East basically made Hammers of Fate obsolete as it includes all the ne...

The HOMM Music Remix Thread

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQvx_yqmdp8 The artist contacted me about his Heroes II grasslands metal remix, so I thought I'd share it here. I'm always happy when musicians show the soundtrack some much needed love with a cover rendition. Maybe if the song gets popular, it'll encourage him to remi...

Heroes III does have a pretty basic story, told through mission briefings and text boxes throughout levels. However, for Heroes Chronicles and Heroes IV, they actually hired a fantasy writer to provide paragraphs and paragraphs of text which I found fascinating.

The game looks great. I played the DS version and enjoyed it a lot. I'm glad the characters actually face the direction that they're walking now. :)

They're great for single player games, where you can use save/load. My heroes rarely end up maxing out their skill slots in multiplayer games. So even if I get a lesser skill from the Witch Hut, it doesn't really affect me. Now if Witch Huts prevented you from gaining a new skill at the next level u...

Incremental steps in the right direction, but not as much as I would have liked. The interface simplification, convoluted storyline, and tunnel-like map design, were all turn-offs for me. However, I did like the improvements made to the flow of combat as well as the skill system. I used to play arou...

To echo Corlagon's sentiments, the story itself doesn't get better as a whole, but some of the more technical things (the writing and overall blocking of the scenes) improves marginally. One might argue that the story actually becomes more convoluted.

Actually, I just finished Clash of Heroes today and it's surprisingly difficult to make fun of. I think Heroes V's story flaw is that it takes itself way too seriously. Clash of Heroes is silly in appearance, but the result is that the plot ends up a bit more mature in contrast. It kind of saddens m...

M&M: Clash of Heroes Hits the Stores

I've been playing Clash of Heroes and it's really great. Probably the best DS puzzle game of 2009. Although, the whole time while using the stylus, I keep thinking to myself: "they could totally create a proper 2D HOMM for DS."

Here's the YouTube trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wccV45fsoJI

Not sure if this is the same trailer that was posted earlier. It might be. Anyway, I guess one positive is if this puzzle game takes off, it might foster interest in the series proper.

I've been playing this and it's pretty fun. Parts of the story are obviously cribbed from H3. Bracada vs. Blakada; AvLee vs. Avily; Erathia vs. Alasia for example. There are also regional versions, some better translated than others. The US version is called Heroes of Gaia. In Europe it's handled by...

H4 all the way. It's a pity that after installing the expansions, I now have the terrible Winds of War music playing during the briefings of the original campaign.

I voted for PoL, but I also really like the Heroes IV Necropolis theme. It captures the character of Gauldoth masterfully and is one of the most compelling compositions in the entire soundtrack. The song is just full of conflict. It alternates between the evil brass themes of Heroes III and heroic t...

I voted for Snow. It consistently had the best terrain musical themes throughout the series, except for HV, which had no theme.

Hmm... dunno if that's going to happen. The whole summary would be something like:

Sareth: *kicks orcs off cliff*
Sareth: *kicks orcs into spikes*
Sareth: *kicks orcs off cliff*
Sareth: *kicks soldier*
Sareth: *kicks orcs off cliff*
*game crash*
