    Might & Magic Heroes VI

    So it's out tommorrow and I was wondering if anyones gonna be getting it? Not much buzz on this site for such a classic pc game which is a bit suprising. I just realised theres a demo so I'll give that a whirl.

    Thanks for pointing out that there is a demo. I'm on the EDGE™ of getting this but want to try first.

    I haven't even got around installing HoMM5 yet, and now there's VI? Damn, I really need to get around destroying my backlog. Going to download the demo and try it first, of course.

    The demo is a whopping 4.5GB. That's ridiculous.

    I found the demo so... bland. It wasn't bad at all, mind you. Just not very exciting.

    It has good mechanics and it looks and plays great but as Faldrath said: It's not very exciting.

    I'd like to know more about Ubi's DRM plans for this.

    I'd also like to know more about what's different from HoMM V (which can currently be purchased in a cheap, completely DRM-free collection, I might add).

    It's not always-on but it uses UPlay, so you will need an Ubi account to play it.

    Feels like a re-skin of Disciples 3. Not a fan.

    It barely runs on netbook, I'll try to teknomance some edge of performance to make it playable.

    @outoffeelinsobad: Well, you have a new disciples that came out this week too.

    I was quite excited about this, but after trying the demo I think I've convinced myself to wait for a sale. Which is a shame really, I think the new king's bountys have spoiled me.

    Sorry, I should've been clearer. Disciples 3 was awful, and M&MHVI tastes similar. I haven't played the new Disciples 3 expansion. Anyone have thoughts on that?

    Quite funny to read people saying that it isn't exciting enough, what do you expect some kind of adrenaline rush type FPS?
    Just out of interest have any of the people making comments actually played the series? I played kings bounty and found it to a total rip off of this series and totally inferior, it took so long to get anywhere.

    King's Bounty was created before Heroes of Might and Magic. It was basically Jon Van Caneghem's prototype for Heroes of Might and Magic. In other words, it couldn't have been a rip off.

    But Katauri's series is inspired by the original King's Bounty and Heroes of Might & Magic.

    Oh, wait, it's you.

    I didn't know we were talking about Katauri's series.

    Well, when someone says King's Bounty there's a 99.999% chance they're talking about the Katauri series.
