News Comments > Might & Magic Heroes VI Patch

Does this patch remove the requirement to always be online and connected to their servers to enjoy all the features of the game?

Until that patch, I will never buy this game. Or any game ever that includes this type of crippling DRM.

I own stalker but haven't played it much more than a couple hours.

Someone posted this link in another thread to Stalker Complete
Its a mod that improves a lot things on the game, mostly graphics.
The description excites me:
It was designed by professional graphic artists with rich experience in the field, following industry standards for creating interactive 3D environments. It features artistic works and modifications from many community members unified under one art direction.
[...]
Natural lighting, vast panoramic views, depth of field, parallax mapping, SSAO, over 900 reworked texture files, including vehicles and armor suites with manual bump editing, you won't believe it's the same game.
And thats just part of the stuff listed.

I'm thinking of using that for my first time playthrough.

Definitely use the Complete mod, even for your first playthrough. Aside from improving the graphics, it addresses a lot of bugs, localization issues, and general annoyances present in the vanilla version, without altering anything that impacts the spirit of the game. To me, it elevates it from flawed gem to near perfection.

Clear Sky was disappointing, Pripyat was great, but the original will always be in my top 10.

I'm getting a little tired of previews that make excuses for the removal of the turn-based combat in Jagged Alliance. I don't care if it works well; this is not a goddamned remake if such a profound fundamental change is made to the gameplay ( I'd go so far as to say it isn't even JA at all without turn-based play). I loved Fallout 3 but to call it a "remake" of Fallout would be erroneous and asinine. Call me anal, but this shit pisses me off.

I have to agree with you. Fallout Tactics proved that it's possible to make this type of game and give the player the option to choose between true turn based or real time with pause. Don't see why they can't do the same thing here. I am interested in this though, so I'm reserving judgment until they post some gameplay vids so people can see for themselves how it plays out.

So I have a question - is this game / series any good?
The first two were great, the rest less so. Although I haven't really looked at this latest version.

The first two were great, but the third one is generally regarded as the best of the series. A sentiment I agree with. I liked em all but IV was definitely the weakest one.

I will definitely be buying this if they patch out the always on DRM. In fact, I would have already bought it if not for that.

You don't HAVE to have it, but if you have more than 3 gigs of RAM and a 64 bit OS and want your game to be able to effectively utilize those resources then you need the LAA exe.

Ahh bummer. Stalker SoC with the Complete mod was an amazing experience and single-handedly disproved John Carmack's notion that story in an FPS doesn't matter.

I remember reading that this would not actually be turn-based, but instead pausable real-time. I am hoping that they have changed their minds on that, or give the option for either method a la X-Com Apocalypse. JA = Turn-based for me.

Indeed. If it doesn't have a true turn-based option, I'm not interested. I don't want a squad-based RTS. The hybrid can be done. Fallout Tactics did it pretty well.

While NV wasn't quite the a yawn-fest F3 was, I still don't think it was that much better. I could care less about the DLC and doubt I could bring myself to play it even if it were free. I guess I just don't understand what people liked so much about it - especially those who seemed to hate F3 as much as I did.

Oh by the way, Blue, it's Two Worlds II for sale on Steam. Not that I'd endorse that turd either...

Hrmm... getting so hard to resist getting it before that and the mod tools come out. And Thanksgiving weekend would be a good time to crunch down on some Skyrim... Grrr arrgh.

If you liked Oblivion, Skyrim, out of the box, is better in every way (imo). I'm as surprised as anyone that I don't regret buying it early.

I gotta admit that I'm pleasantly surprised with this game. I was originally going to hold off for patches/dlc/goty but too many people whose opinions I trust convinced me to go ahead and get it.. And man it's totally made me unbored with video games again. Aside from the key mapping issues I have practically no complaints and haven't experienced any bugs other than the rare CTD.

I don't pirate games, but I definitely don't buy games that require always on DRM or cripple content if you're not online. I'm looking at you, HOMM VI.

Skyrim has been "out" for XBox360 for almost a couple of weeks now. 60hrs in to it and I don't think I'm half way through it. Too many quests and side quests!!! I'll revisit after taking Ezio through his final chapter.

"Nothing is true, Everything is permitted."

Nice, come into a thread about DRM and go on about how you're 60 hours into an unreleased game. If you were press or something I could see not getting mad about it, but seriously you're a dick.

It's not just that, but he's just gotta go out of his way, every time, in every thread to just casually bring up "Oh yeah, have I mentioned I pirated Skyrim for the 360?" We get it. Take it somewhere else for the sake of fuck.

ToEE was a really great.. 3.5 Edition combat simulator

It was so buggy I could never play it. I tried again like a year ago but apparently it doesn't jive with modern tech.

I've played through it again on Win7 x64 within the last year with the latest Co8 mod/patch and it was very stable. All I can say is though it may lack in depth of story, it more than makes up for it in interesting encounters. The art is pretty good too imo.

The Co8 patch not only fixes bugs, but enhances AI and adds new content. You should give it another chance.

ToEE was a really great.. 3.5 Edition combat simulator. There wasn't much of a story, but it really does have the most faithful representation of PnP D&D combat in any game ever in that it's turn based and much more tactical than games like Baldur's Gate. That made it good enough for me to really enjoy it. It's even better with the Circle of Eight mods.

A game built on the ToEE engine with the scope of BG or even Icewind Dale would be so great.

Why would anyone be excited about this? Sounds like a lazy way to make up for a lack of content. And I do agree that it seems fishy that they announce it just now, so close to release date. Definitely reminds me of the Radiant AI about face. Oh well.. this title, is a wait and see for me anyway.
