It might be interesting for the game to start high-technology and then blend in fantasy instead of the other way around. The last 3 games had that.. well, Im not sure about 9, never finished it.

WHAT A HORRIBLE NIGHT TO HAVE A CURSE.

Might and Magic IX was the work of Satan. I say let it burn in fiery bowels of hell.

 

Might and Magic X is the future. It will hearken back to the days of World of Xeen, Might and Magic VI, and Might and Magic VII. I see great things in the future if only Might and Magic X can see the light of day!

ALL of the M&M games had a techie portion. it was their "thing" i suppose. i did not like it, personally. 6 was good, 7 wasn't bad, 8 started to suck and 9 blew chunks. unfortunately, the engine technology BARELY changed from 6 through 9... pitiful since that spanned 5 years or so.

 

taks

comrade taks... just because.

Actually, they changed engines for Might and Magic IX. Unfortunately, they didn't have enough experience with the new engine and so the graphics were actually worse for IX than they were for VI-VIII. I didn't much like VIII, but IX was absolutely terrible. It was actually embarassing.

 

The idea that there might be a new Might and Magic implies someone is willing to spend the money to revive the series. 3DO was ailing at the end, using the New World titles to bolster bad decisions.... much like IP used BIS.

I liked Might and Magic 2 through World of Xeen.

 

The mighty Wizardy creator turned around and gave us the steaming pile of Dungeon Siege years later. I don't know that classic dungeon crawl creators know how to make good games today.

 

And didn't James Cavenaugh or whatever his name was go to Midway and work with Sawyer last I heard? How is in charge of the Might and Magic franchise now.

The world just ended. I thought all along that Arkane was working on Arx 2 for Source. Not this...abomination.

Dark Messiah of Might & Magic puts players in a first-person perspective, allowing them to immerse themselves in the legendary Might and Magic universe as never before.

Did they not get the memo from NWC when they bought the franchise? M&M games have been in 1st person since about 1985.

 

Anyhow, FPSs don't interest me.

Don't let despair overwhelm you! There's some good news on the Through the Looking Glass boards:

 

The game looks to be very Arx-like. It's an RPG with stats - not as many as Arx, but there. World interaction looks very HL2ish, which makes sense.

 

As I've said elsewhere,

 

This will be an RPG, similar to Arx, but much, much bigger.

This is M&M in name only. It's something new.

There is no gesture mouse spell system.

Arx 2 is not dead.

Press releases are silly and say silly things.

I've seen many videos of this game in action, so if there's any confusion, I can offer some help.

Because Arx Fatalis was a real rpg.

Don't get me wrong, I trust Dan(and Saam to an extent), but I want an rpg set in the rather original dungeon world of Arx, not an fps set in a setting which interests me nil.

Er, what do we know about the setting? DN says it will be a M&M game in name only, which, to me, gives a good reason to believe that Arkane might very well be developing something as atmospheric and refreshing as the world of Arx.
