Tropico 6 reveals its isles of plunder

If I were going to steal the Eiffel Tower, I'd definitely strap a giant rocket to it and launch it into the sky. Once it was airborne, I'd remotely pilot it back to my volcano lair and then park it in the Monument Chamber next to the Statue of Liberty (also rocket-propelled) and the Great Sphinx of Giza (trundles around on little wheels). It's not…

Viva El Presidente! Tropico 6 announced for 2018

El Presidente will return to rule an island could-be paradise with Tropico 6 [Steam page]. Publishers Kalypso Media today announced the latest in the city-building manage-o-strategy series, which is due in 2018. A new developer is taking over from Haemimont Games, who had made Tropicos 3-5, bringing new ideas including expanding across archipelagos and, er, sending agents to steal monuments like the Statue of Liberty.…

Ah, Memories! Might & Magic Heroes 7 Revisits HOMM4

Might & Magic Heroes VII [official site] may be a bit of a disappointment, but Limbic Entertainment have kept plugging away at it. Now it's kinda sorta maybe a bit-ish like Heroes of Might & Magic IV, if what you liked most about HOMM4 was its story? MMH7 has added a new free mini-campaign penned by HOMM4 (oy, these changing names!) writer Terry B. Ray.…

Performance & Prettiness: M&M Heroes VII Patch Plans

Heroes of Might & Magic will always hold a special place in my heart for hotseat fun with childhood chums, but the series has lost its way over the years. Even the most casual of glances at Steam player reviews for Might & Magic Heroes VII [official site] will fill your eyes with complaints about bugs, crashes, poor performance, ugliness, and more. Oh dear. Still,…

HOMM Sweet HOMM: Might & Magic Heroes VII Is Out

Heroes of Might & Magic (or Might & Magic Heroes) is one of those series that has been mediocre long enough that people who remember The Good Old Days cock an eyebrow at the irregular new releases but aren't especially interested because to be honest they'd rather have a proper new King's Bounty: Armored Princess. I may be projecting. Just a touch. I'm talking about…

Get Lorey: Might & Magic Heroes VII Out September 29th

Might & Magic Heroes VIIĀ [official site] is launching September 29th, so sayeth Ubisoft from on high. A second closed beta phase is scheduled to start August 26th in the interim period, running for about a week until September 2nd and letting players try out previously unavailable factions. These are the fan-voted factions, the Sylvan and Dungeon, the result of a voting session that began last…

Lore And Order: Might & Magic Heroes 7

Ubisoft have a fifty page PDF dedicated to TALES OF THE TEN YEAR WAR as background reading for Might & Magic Heroes 7. It's fine and all, featuring words like "succubus" and "exile" and "decided" and "the", but I'm far more interested in their stained glass window design. I've always liked stained glass windows as storytelling devices so I'm enjoying looking at this one, unpicking…

HOMMage: Might & Magic Heroes VII Announced

What would you want in a new Might & Magic Heroes game? (Or a new Heroes of Might & Magic, if you prefer the old name.) When a series is 19 years old, would you rather an exciting new direction, a return to the early days, more of the same, or some sort of mish-mash of two decades' best bits? Recent games in the fantasy…

Might & Magic X: Legacy review

Might & Magic X, released last week, is a resurrection of the ancient first-person roleplaying series. It's not to be confused with strategy-RPG sister series Heroes of Might & Magic, or Crusaders of Might and Magic, or Warriors of Might and Magic, or Legends of Might and Magic, or Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, or Might & Magic: Clash Of Heroes. Despite the scary…

What Does Might & Magic X’s “Open Dev” Mean?

Limbic Entertainment, who are building the handsome new Might & Magic game for Ubisoft, have just announced the start of "Open Dev" for the game. But what does this cryptic phrase mean? Which part of the current community-infused, early-access, crowdy gaming zeitgeist are they actually riffing off here? Well, it's... different. They are allowing us to vote on various aspects of how they develop the…
