    They really wanted something that can be instantly recognizable so they could cash in on the nostalgia for the original Heroes series. :smug:

  2. Then they should have called it Champions of Strength and Sorcery or so. And not like something that sounds utterly retarded. I hope that the choice of the name isn't any indication of what will follow, but i am pessimistic.

    The name should have no bearing on the actual quality of the game. We can't judge it until we actual see what the style is. At this point, it's too early to be leaning either way.

    "A passing conversation would hopefully go something like this...
    - Playing Heroes 3?
    - No. Fanstratics.
    - Fan-what? Fantrastics?
    - No. Fanstratics.
    - That's a fucking dumb name.
    - Yeah."

    That's how that casual conversation would go.

    Huge HoMM fan and have been a member over at Celestial Heavens forums for many years now! They were the ones who told me about this project so I've been getting these subscriber emails too. Hope it goes well but it's so early days! Was glad to see he's finally buckled on the terrible name and is going to do a poll lol.

    A very strong Warhammer-esque vibe for this month's featured unit concept.

    I'm still miffed by this
    All forums are will attract shitposters, but they also provide good feedback. He sounds like a child who can't handle criticism.

    Also, claiming players who enjoy the game do so "quietly" is false.

    Fuck feedback. Most high quality games were made without input from sniveling shits. This could turn out well, not exactly thrilled about the "2D in 3D" business but the concept art looks solid. Oh yeah, seems Greg got himself a twitter account just for this but he hasn't posted anything yet. My approach: come back one year.

    I agree with Kalin and Parsifarka.
    This is one developer who I feel like I can trust as far as their vision for the game goes.

    Bros, I will make this really cool game. Just like the nineties when life didn't suck. Here's a .docx, written by me, saying that I will so you can trust me. Bros.
