Close To HOMM: Might & Magic Heroes VI


The highly anticipated (by me) Might and Magic Heroes VI is out October 11th and, look here, a new trailer has emerged. I was hoping it'd show some detail about the blood and tears reputation system, which might shake up the turn-based gathering and killing, but instead it's mostly earnest humanoids spouting gubbins like: "You have served your emperor and your dragon." I'm going to refer to it as HOMM VI, in keeping with tradition, since the new topsy-turvy title shortens to MAMH. HOMM is a happy if somewhat placid noise, resplendently conjuring mountaintop monasteries and lotus-drenched pools by which archers train in the midday sun. MAMH is how certain northern tribes refer to their mothers. Watch this and decide which is more fitting.

It's HOMM, isn't it?

Even though the visuals are still bright and somewhat cartoony, there’s definitely something much more vicious in the bashing and stabbing. That’ll be the ‘blood’ then. If you go the ‘tears’ route, I expect enemies will be caressed into eternal slumber by sorrowful, pacifist giants clutching weeping halberds.
