New Might and Magic game announced.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic

http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/08...s_6130325.html

The developer is pretty good, but I hope it doesn't affect Arx Fatalis 2, which I'm much more interested in.

Saw a clip on it a while back showing off the combat system in 3D. The developer was commenting during it how it wasnt the finished product and there were alot more effects and details to put in. I've got my fingers crossed. I think we're overdue for a good version.

As are most series spanning more than 10 titles.

Unforuntately they've put Arx Fatalis 2 on the backburner while they finish this game

Hopefully this will net them enough money to do a really good job on AF2

I hope this M&M game has a darker theme. I got bored of the "cartoony" style of the M&M games ages ago.

I'm happier they've put AF2 on hold. Since Magic is almost finished, I'd rather they not be half focused on the BETTER game in my opinion. I want AF2 to be stellar.

Was AF1 good?
Is this the type of hgame like Morrowind that ports good to a console? Or is the XBOX version utter trash.

I'd much rather have a new Heroes of Might and Magic game.

To be honest I never saw the xbox version of Fatalis. I guess it cant be all that bad a conversion. Unless they really did something stupid.

I'm not. Games that go on hold tend to stay that way

Heh, I should have wrote "the" and not "a". I always liked Heroes, 2 and 3 are some of my favorite PC games.

I never played IV, though, so it feels funny it's at V already. I just never liked the look of IV.
