Heroes Of Might & Magic 3 HD Released, Problems Abound

The list of games that have caused me sleepless nights (because I didn't go to bed) or hindered my ability to get anything done (because I was playing them) is not a short list, but somewhere near the top is New World Computing's indisputable classic* Heroes of Might & Magic III. News of an official HD re-release was therefore exciting, though my family, friends and colleagues may…

HD Wizards: Heroes Of Might & Magic III HD Announced

Feature: HoMM is where the heart is

Bountiful: Might & Magic Heroes VI Preview

The series formerly known as Heroes of Might & Magic returns, with a confusingly rearranged name, to a post-King's Bounty landscape. Without access to publishers' long and tedious spreadsheets, I of course couldn't begin to guess whether 1C's good-natured, wilfully silly turn-based strategy/semi-roleplaying game presents any kind of financial threat to HoMM. KB's certainly made hay during HoMM's six-year absence, however. Now daddy's coming back…
