Re: Book III Release Date

So close, Book III is almost here. Hopefully I'm done with Might & Magic X by Friday (80 hours deep and counting). That would be perfect timing to scoop this up right after finishing MMX.

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

Finished act 2. There is only one mandatory dungeon in act 2, as opposed to four in act 1, but there is a lot of outer world to explore. The game is not quite open world, in that there is a lot of room to roam around and go in a bunch of different directions in the order of your choosing, but there ...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

So now that I'm level 12, I went back to the cyclops. He still thoroughly crushed me. At this point, the battle is probably possible, but I'd have to burn through a silly amount of potions to have any chance. Not worth it. I'll try again around level 15 or so. I'm finding that mana is maybe even mor...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

I'm well into act 2 now and I can say with a wide grin on my face that this game is delightfully old school, with all the good and bad that comes with that. The game will thoroughly punish you for trying to sleepwalk through battles or using poor strategy, but it's fair, and everything can be beaten...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

My characters are all up to level 8 and I'm just starting Castle Portmeyon, which is the final main quest dungeon in Act 1, if that hasn't been altered since Early Access, after clearing the Lighthouse. The boss fight in the Lighthouse was pretty epic. It took me 3 tries. I'm glad I stocked up on po...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

A reviewer on Amazon said that the game cannot be played offline and requires an account with uplay. Do you know if this is true or not? By the way, thanks for your input. It does indeed require UPlay (everything recent from Ubisoft needs UPlay). You need internet to download and activate it initia...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

There are ships and caravans where you can pay to fast travel to other towns. As far as combat difficulty, I like it. I'm playing on Warrior (hard) difficulty, and some battles can be pretty brutal. You need to really use your head and all your abilities to survive. That's exactly what I want out of...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

It is available on Steam for $24.99. There is also a deluxe digital edition for $5 more. Windows only. I'm about to pull the trigger....... The full name is Might and Magic X: Legacy. For those wondering, the deluxe edition nets you a free copy of Might & Magic VI , an exclusive dungeon (presumably...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

* Did I mention that it really feels like old school Might & Magic ? Is the gameplay smooth? Because the original was convuluted! To much... of everything! I never really felt the old school M&M games were convoluted, then again that was a long time ago when I was much younger, so who knows. Anyway...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

Aww, it's in Unity but there's no Linux version? Boo... Yeah, that is a bit disappointing. Maybe if enough people clamor for it they will make it happen, though this is Ubisoft we're talking about here, it's a miracle they funded this game at all. Also, they'd have to make a linux client for UPlay,...

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

It's out! Today! Right now! I'm still stuck at work for a couple more hours, but once I get home I'm all over this little slice of goodness. I enjoyed what I played during Early Access, and now the full game is here. This is so surreal. I'm going to be playing an honest to goodness Might & Magic gam...

Lords of Xulima

It's yet another in a seemingly endless stream of crowdfunding campaigns. This time around, Spanish indie developer Numantian Games presents an old school, party-based, isometric RPG, with 1st person turn-based combat. Check it out: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lords-of-xulima http://www.lordso...

Re: Sit down. We need to have a talk.

I stopped caring about physical media years ago, in fact, I prefer digital distribution.

Re: Might and Magic: Is it back?

So, it's out early access style, meaning you can basically play the alpha right now (only 1 act right now, bugs, not everything is finalized, etc.) and get the full game when it comes out. Being a Might & Magic fan, I couldn't help myself and pulled the trigger. Here are my thoughts (keep in mind th...
