Re: So is this game worth buying?

It depends. It's fairly playable but it doesn't introduce anything new to the franchise. If you are okay with that, the game is good.

No one said that. If you think the parallelism to scientific processes is far-fetched, have a look at what I wrote about literature.

Re: What do you think the future of Might and Magic Shall Behold?

I wouldn't blame age so much as how badly the 3do experience burned him out; there are some things you just don't recover from. Maybe. But there's no way to prove that this is the reason. The only way to prove he still is capable of creating masterpieces is... well, to create a masterpiece. So, you...

Re: What do you think the future of Might and Magic Shall Behold?

Veterans are never better than recruits. Veterans never fight themselves. If you've seen a 54 year old fighting, he is fighting for his life. Not even in the two World Wars did 54 year olds fight. They may be more experienced, but they certainly cannot do the things a 20 year old can do. It's no bet...

Re: What do you think the future of Might and Magic Shall Behold?

Don't get me wrong, I loved all of JVC's games, but since 3DO went bankrupt he has done nothing important. He seemed very thrilled about what he was going to do in NCSoft and Trion but left them both. He then went on to head the team that was making C&C Online, but the alpha testers didn't like ...

Re: What do you think the future of Might and Magic Shall Behold?

MMX was good. It was not very true to the series, but it was far better than MMIX (and MM8 in my opinion). It failed mostly because it was way too old school. Ubisoft didn't believe in the project and the budget was minimal. Considering how small they went with the budget of Heroes VII, which is sup...

Re: Mystery of Sand M&M7

You are not making any sense, so I don't see any reason to continue the discussion. We have established the fact that you are wrong in your assumptions and your arguments about the state of completeness of MMVII are baseless. If you don't want to understand, that's your prerogative.

Are you still on that? Enroth is Enroth too, yet the Enroth of MM6 bears little resemblance to that of H2. Get over it.

Given the absymal sales of the game, I am surprised they bother with this. Guess Ubi has money to waste. Big pass, much like in H5 I hated this all-dwarf town. Borrrring.

Re: Mystery of Sand M&M7

You have no facts. Your arguments hold no water and you obviously have no understanding about the processes involved in making a game, its logistics and the time constraints. No one says MM7's Erathia is a different continent than that of H3's Erathia. It's just another -more realistic- re-imagining...

Re: Mystery of Sand M&M7

Green/desert ground in Deyja is fact. It's not green, it's actually brownish. There are some sandy portions, yes, but what's wrong with that anyway? Most of the area of Deyja explored in MM7 (because it's not the entire Deyja, clearly) consists of badlands, a pretty close equivalent to the default ...

I am struggling to understand that myself. I think he is trying to say that although Archibald is supposed to be older, he looks younger than Roland in the intro.

Re: Mystery of Sand M&M7

Okay. Adding quests, altering the whole plot, the program, the scripts, recording voice actors, animating scenes, rendering them and a bunch more stuff is easy and takes little time. The company can obviously develop the game within 3 months. Also the Earth is a rectangle.

What country is that? I'm asking because both the States and the EU have laws that allow you to do that.

Re: H7 1.5 Announced

You can return a game, too. Blizzard isn't the ideal example, for me. Companies can't sustain a project for so long unless they have another source of financing. For Blizzard that is WoW. There's not a similar thing going for the MM brand. On the other hand, I don't want to wait 5-10 years for anoth...
