The saga continues!

Well, not really. But on my Youtube channel, you can now find this, the second gameplay video. Short this time, focusing on graphics. What I'm doing is play around with the graphics settings so you can see how the framerate behaves and how the graphics of the game changes with the alternate settings.

In my opinion, the effects seem good and don't change a whole lot when you turn the settings down a notch or two, but there are a couple of buttons you can push if the game is too resource demanding - while not taking away the good graphical experience.

Dear Heroes,

After weeks of advises, Dev Team give some news about next Tales for Heroes VII. It seems players want more information about Naga and the Lotus Empire, The Griffin family, and Sandro, the famous Necromancer.

We now have to wait more income from the Spy Master :)

Dear Heroes,

Some days ago, dev's team shows to the community bios and portrait of stronghold's hall of Heroes.
Some of them are present in the campaign, and all will be available in skirmish or multiplayer maps.
You can discover or rediscover them: Yog, Ishi, Drakon and Anga.

Dear Heroes,

Finally, The Dev team has revealed the line up for Sylvan's faction, with all basic and elite units.
For those whom haven't seen the news, Sylvan faction is composed of:
- Hunter & Master Hunter
- Dryad & Oak Dryad
- Pixie & Sprite
- Druid & Druid Elder
- Moon Doe & Sun Deer
- Blade Dancer & Blade Master

It is not a surprise, players are quite upset about characters' design. Some comments consider that Moon Doe is too cute to go on the battlefield.
Others are quite upset about the choice of having women as Druids, event the lore justifies this choice.
The main criticisms concern the lack of muscles for Blade Master.

And you, what is your opinion about Sylvan's units ?

Dear Councillors,

After giving us Sylvan's line up some days ago, Dev Blog finally reveal Might & Magic's Heroes for Sylvan.
Might Heroes are Avenger, ranger or Warden, suit with light armor and a bow.
Magic Heroes are Thornsower, Mystic and Starsinger, designed with cape and a spear.

Numerous players' comments those artworks, and many dislike helmets or cape design. Maybe Ubisoft will change those aspects during the 3D creation...
And you, do you consider those design matches well for Sylvan's faction ?

See more on the Sylvan Magic Heroes page and Sylvan Might Heroes page.
