No News is Good News?

Postby Angelspit » Jan 5 2006, 14:43

It has been weeks since we last heard about Dark Messiah... It's hard to believe the game will be available in stores this Summer.

Anyone else is excited about that game? I can't wait to play my first Might and Magic deathmatch.
I'm on Steam and Xbox Live.

Yes, the last movie I saw was the one with Erwan (but I might have missed one). The movie had a very high image quality, with some very interesting info and battle sequences. I feel like downloading it again.

Thanks. I really like the sketches, I admire people who can draw that good. :D I like that part of the sentence "...For all future Might& Magic games." that Erwan said. ;)

I think I won't be able to resist the temptation the game outpours and play it - although I don't want to.

However, I agree that no news could rather be good news. They seem to be working hard and might release an impressing and fun game :)

It looks a bit too violent and bloody for me. Besides, I don't like FPS much. I'll buy it anyway though. I want all Might and Magic games, no matter what. :baby:

Nah... you're just crazy!

Me, i don't like to get my hopes up. I'm not into FPS that much anyway, but if it's any good i'll play it.

I noticed that most games that require it are console ports. Most straight to PC ones usualy have it as an option.

I bet I won't be able to play DM, but I'm probably an exceptional case...

Also on cover of PC Gamers, 2/06.

Both issues discuss Dark Messiah at some length.
