    A cursory glance at the Mobygames page of MM8 shows that most/all of the designers/producers fell off the map after Heroes 4 or MM9 and have done nothing since. I don't know how accurate Mobygames is, though. I'd love to see Jon Van Caneghem on this thing but it doesn't seem likely.

    I am finding it hard to get too excited.

    Not any of the obvious reasons either like:

    1. Publishers evil, why do they hate games so much?

    2. Might be first person walker/oblivion clone.

    3. It seems there's very few competent game makers so even if they do everything we want it will probably get cancelled or be full of bugs.

    No, it's just because I think M&M has pretty much done it all. I don't think they can ever top M&M 6 or M&M 7 without making a big departure from the formula or going back to the roots and making it a stepper with complicated dungeons. But we know the actual changes will be make things more simple, lots more annoying cuscenes (especially the awful in-engine ones) and all the other bad crap.

    And I liked M&M 8 and 9 (just not as much as 6 and 7 or 1 and 2).

    Well, to be fair, I like Obsidian. A lot. I really disliked what they did in AP, and I feel they have yet to release a game that doesn't have serious drawbacks, usually related to it being "leftovers" from some other dev. Still, I thought they did a great job in Fallout: New Vegas. And I think they showed promise in the NWN2 expansions and KotOR2.

    I would object to them because M&M isn't really about what they do well. The only way I see Obsidian releasing a good game here is if they made a completely different kind of game than any of the previous Might & Magics.

    Oh right, I forget obsidian, the obvious thing that trumps all the other obvious things. That alone is more than enough to give up hope.

    At least it will be entertaining to look at how many amazingly stupid ways they screw up the franchise.

    So I just took a look at the official Might & Magic Facebook page, and they seem to have started something like a M&M series retrospective just a few days ago:

    Can't be a coincidence either. The hype machine is about to start.

    yes i can see the trailer video showing briefly might and magic 1to 7 then proudly and for the longest amount of time Might and magic 9 like garriot did with ultima 9 . Then they will tell us how they will revolutionarize the genre, with awesome visceral action, you will end up with a third person shooter like dark messiah with maybe a few feats or two to customize your character and of course day one dlc to get a new character costume + some new TF2 hat .No permanent connection needed as they learn from sim city debacle but Uplay will be mandatory with online checks every 5 min .

    CEOs gathered in their offices
    just like witches at black masses
    evil minds that plot promotion
    sorcerers of decline's construction
    in their graves the old series are spinning
    as the hype machine keeps turning
    death and hatred to mankind
    poisoning their brainwashed minds
    Oh, Lord yeah!

    Will GoG have a sale of the old titles at least for this? I've been meaning to play WoX for a bit.

    By them letting this project go forward just tells me the their reboot "version" of MMX won't look or feel like 1 thru 9 at all but will be "re-imagined" for the next gen. If their game was like the M&Ms of the past they wouldn't want anything like Children of the Void to be out there.

    Just download it you fuck! Ubisoft doesn't deserve your pocket change, send JVC a dollar if it bothers you so goddamn much!

    Waiting for sales wards me against the infinite backlog piracy would give me.
