Quite a few laughs in this one. :-) Again, it made me want to play the game. Noooooo!!!! Not now! Must resist!
I've never played any of the Might and Magic games, but I seem to recall having purchased them from GoG. I just logged into my GoG account, and sure enough, I purchased the "Might and Magic Six-Pack" (games 1 through 6) almost TWO YEARS AGO! (December 2009!) I also have Might and Magic 7 and 8, as well as "Heroes of M&M 3"!!! And I've never played any of them! How stupid is that?
M&M 6 actually doesn't look as primitive as I was expecting. The graphics look more than acceptable to me. A bit boxy looking, but it looked smooth, with a good sense of movement and perspective, and the walking NPC's and monsters ("mobs???") looked about right. The interface looks quite a bit more user-friendly than I was expecting. I guess I was expecting something a bit more hardcore-looking and obscure (i.e. Dwarf Fortress), but this game looks easy enough to handle. Overall, it looks more "modern" than many of the CRPG's you've done episodes for lately.
I'm not sure how I feel about the "real" faces. They seem to look a bit out-of-place to me, and they make some very goofy faces as your game went on. It makes the game look "light" and comedic. Maybe that's the vibe they were going for, I don't know, but dare I say it, it almost felt like anime!
Your Paladin character kind of looks like you, Matt. And the fourth character kind of looks like me, except I don't have a goatee. :-)
Dangit, I'm probably going to have to install this one tonight. :-(
