The Dark Misogynist

I found this game unappealing and therefor did not buy it or play the demo, etc. so I won't comment on DM specifically. However, I'd just like to state as a female who has played through many other male-oriented games, that I'd rather have a game where women(and men) were portrayed stereoptypically ...

I don't know stefan, sometimes fans can be the most critical of all--but you could be right about people voting without having played it. I won't be getting it til at least the first patch myself.

Hammers Review at GameSpot

Did you notice Gamespot has that comparison thing; We say/ You say?
So "they say" 6.4, 127 readers say 8.6 . Obviously this guy just didn't get into the game.

The PC as a Gaming Platform

Everyone always says console gaming costs less than PC--but every three or four years there's that "new generation " thing and the cost of a console -I heard $600.00 U.S. for the new PS3-is now as much as a cheap desktop. You don't think they're going to cost more every time a new one comes out? Yes...

Mok's patch is what is letting me run this old but favorite game on XP. Ah, well--it's probably something really obvious that I'm missing--it usually is :)
I actually only loaded this up to play Arcomage, but one thing just led to another....
Thanks again for your help!

Well, as you can imagine, I've pretty well tried every distance. As for MM6. I know what you mean-I always had trouble with putting the statues on the pedestals myself.

Yes, I have the quest. I have tried both ways--holding the skull on the mouse point and leaving it in my druid's inventory and using the spacebar. Just a minute ago I finally got it to balance on top of the coffin. Is this what is supposed to happen?

Frankly, its hard for me to beleive that the addicted gambler is going to be drawn to a HOMM5 machine--like, pull the handle and hope 5 griffins appear?

Me, too--just want to say thanks for the fastrak, ossir gets soldiers luck, and town portal mods. They have really improved the game for me.
Very easy to use, too, since I am often file-and-folder challenged ;)

Hard for me to pick between Necropolis and Inferno--but have to go with being Lord of the Undead. :devil: As for the Haven faction, to me it is just not very interesting, tho powerful and easy to play.

Too bad, but time moves on, I guess. Still-- looks like a game with a lot of effort put into it that could be quite good. Thanks for the info.

Nice guide--but I saw nothing about any kind of party structure in the SP campaign. Is it strictly first-person, one character? Not even any joinable NPCs?

That's a great site--wish I'd had it for HOMMV. I fortunately passed--just bought a new monster beast of a computer, tho.

IGN Look At Upcoming Games

I'd be happy if they'd just do a content/new character patch or expansion like LOD---though the 1.11 patch did add some rune words. But with the men who created the game gone, it's hard to say what a Diablo III from current Blizzard people would be like--probably worth playing, anyway, since Blizzar...
