Games you like that others don't

wait what?
p.s. If I hadn't played M&M world of Xeen, I wouldn't have known what you meant.

 

It is true, look it up. If I recall correctly, AB should have continued from evil ending of M&M7, represented as the Forge town. Some forge concept art got out and people didn't like it so they changed it, making good ending canon. Since then, there have been some attempts at modding the faction back.

 

And it's not just Xeen, all M&M games except last (I think) have sci-fi elements.
In M&M you find a guy in a control room. Not to mention aliens. Second ends with your party beaming down to planet Terra. There you take off in a spaceship. World of Xeen of course has the final showdown between the two androids. Then there are the Kreegans invading from space, alien devil race (Inferno in Heroes) and you fighting them off with laser guns. M&M 7 is similar to 6. M&M 8 is the purest one, only sci-fi element is the main antagonist.

 

Heroes might not have been as blunt with it but it did hint at events in the RPG series.

RPG series of might and magic indeed is a science fiction, where players put in places where degraded inhabitants think that technology is magic. The basic premise of all series is that Ancients used the technology of elemental manipulation to go into elemental planes, which is a sort of Warhammer warp, to use their energy to build giant flat continents-colonies but they were in war with creators, who made Kreegan rase. And at the time when games go, there already no communication with ancients in this part of the galaxy for quite some time.


However, with Heroes, there is a bit of a twist that the original Heroes 1 game not meant to really be plot connected initially. At end of Xeen, they ended the original Sheltem plotline and didn't want to make any more new RPG MM games. So they made heroes which is sort of "here your favorite characters and creatures from all MM series, now they can fight!" and someone from the team added as the manual story for Knight protagonist, connecting him (or we presume) with VARN-4 (Original flat-colony world of the first MM game).


And only then, when NWC was bought by 3DO, and JVC's plans for MMO game he wanted to make were canceled because 3DO said that will not give money on it, they made Might and Magic 6. Initially, they wanted to create a new universe for it, even hired some writer to make some books, but in the end, decided to merge Heroes and MM universe backs together and continue in MM6 plotline of the Heroes 2. This resulted in some minor retcons, which confused some people who were in charge of MM after some original people left after Forge cancel and Armaggedon's blade addon.

Shadow the Hedgehog game. Unironically. Also I haven't played Project CARS 3, but looking forward to.

Update on Project CARS 3: I tried it out, first impressions are good (besides invalidating time for wall collisions)

Raid: World War II.

 

Everyone apparently hated it (it's rated 51% on steam). And while I understand the criticism when it was sold for $40, now having the benefit of waiting out I got it for mere $1.50 and actually had a lot of fun. It kept me busy the first 15-20 hours and was one of those rare games that made me feel upset when I had to go sleep instead of grinding it all night.

I am a big fan of the WOW, many people express their negative opinion about this game since it has been ranking the best game for a long time in its genre. Despite the fact that it was released a long time ago, thousands of fans still continue to play it.

WoW was massively better back in the early days, that's where the dislike of modern WoW came from. In comparison, the new form is fairly dogshit, and has been dumbed down so much that they don't even allow strength builds on hunters anymore.

Don't insult me. I have trained professionals to do that.

Well, it was kind of more long transition. From the classic warcraft to "modern". First, they shifted focus from the global war more on the characters in WC2 addon, then there was officially unreleased Warcraft Adventures, then the Warcraft 3, and then WoW. Each game a little bit shifted style, narrative, and direction of the universe to something polar opposite. From original Warcraft which is sort of a realistic dark fantasy with plot and atmosphere kind of similar to the movie "Army of darkness" to modern MMO cartoony "whatever" aimed at the eastern markets.
In addition to that, WoW and Warcraft 3 was in the development hell for quite some time. And the fact that there are no any original bliz devs in the Activision "blizzard" anymore also do not helps.

Because it waited and then edited in the spam. Nobody saw the spam because it wasn't there originally.

Indeed. Of course it does also defeat the purpose of the spam itself, which is to get as many people as possible to click the link, so it really was a lose/lose situation.
