We caught our first glimpse of Might and Magic Heroes VI at this year's gamescom, but further details since then have been fairly sparse. Fortunately, I was able to sit down with producer Erwan LeBreton at Ubisoft's Digital Day and get a closer look at the game.
Although the Might & Magic franchise has grown to encompass multiple different genres over the years, the Heroes series is best known for its unique blend of turn-based strategy and RPG elements. While Heroes VI appears to remain faithful to the series, preserving many of the gameplay mainstays, great effort has been made to implement changes and improvements that fans have been clamoring for.
One of the big game reveals of last night's Ubisoft event was Zeit2 (pronounced Zeit-squared). Like the publishers other hot hybrid title Outland, Zeit2 works to combine influences from a variety of different games and fuse them into one cohesive package. The game looks a bit like FlOw, plays like Gradius, and thinks like Braid.
As you can tell by the look on the guys face in the video below, the game is quite thought provoking. Hit the jump for my full impressions.
[Update] Video added.
Since Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game released last month, people have been wondering when we were going to unlock the final secret character in the game. Nega Scott is easily attainable in th...
There's nothing out there quite like No More Heroes. Born on the Wii by developer Suda 51, the original No More Heroes was wild and outlandish, a stylized beyond belief game for the Wii. Nothing quite like it has come since then, and maybe nothing will.
That is, except for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle. Designed purely as a way to take things to the next level, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle is a game of more, with more violence, more sex, more cheesy charm, more over-the-top everything. When dealing with someone like Suda 51 and Grasshopper Studios, a dev team that calls themselves a videogame band, with a mantra of “punx not dead,” things are bound to be get a little crazy. Check out our video posts to get a taste.
If you found anything to like about No More Heroes, pay attention to what I have to say: fat kitties, buxom prepubescent anime girls, gratuitous boob shots and wild gore are all in store for you. For those obsessed with the franchise, watch out for spoilers, there are plenty here. Hit the jump.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, Ubisoft has decided to scrap its UbiDays media event this year, in favor of E3, Cologne-based GamesCon, and Tokyo Game Show. In the past, Ubisoft has held extravagant events for retailers ...
Wow. So the front page was overloaded with tons of content today. In between all of the regular news posts and features, I, along with the help of Chad and Nick, brought you all a ton of new info on upcoming Ubisoft games. We...
Every station at Ubidays was packed full of journalists and bloggers. Every stations except for the Games for Everyone stations that is. I should have known better. I figured I had some time so I'd check out what Ubisoft was offering with their casual games.
I think I lost some of my manhood after I finished hearing about My Secret World for the Nintendo DS. You would too if you had to hear about a game that's nothing more than an electronic diary for more that ten minutes. If you're smart, you'll completely avoid this preview post. If you're feeling brave (or bored), all I can suggest to you is that you have Fleshbot ready to go in another tab so you can cleanse your soul after you've read everything.
Easily my biggest surprise from Ubidays was My Weight Loss Coach for the Nintendo DS. When the game was first announced, I never gave it a second thought. I figured it was going to be some kind of quick and simple Brain Age meets Wii Fit type game.
As it turns out, there's a lot more to My Weight Loss Coach than I had originally assumed. The game isn't focusing on players to just go work out every day. It's about changing the little things in a your daily life to help create better habits for yourself. Hit the jump to learn more about this unique little title.
[Editor's note: Sorry for the lack of photos everyone. Something is screwing with the file Ubisoft provided. Best I could do was find this video preview of the game on YouTube. Don't let the wall of text scare you please.]
Tom Clancy's EndWar, probably Ubisoft's biggest hyped up game of this year. And for good reason too. This is the stepping stone in a new direction Ubisoft is going towards. It's an RTS game designed just for consoles and implements other Tom Clancy games such as having Ghost Recon soliders and H.A.W.X fighter jets. This is also the first current-gen game allowing players to just use their voice to control every aspect of the game.
Hit the jump to see what I thought of Tom Clancy's EndWar and it's voice command system.
My Health Coach: The Easyway to Stop Smoking is exactly what it sounds like. It's a game for the Nintendo DS meant to help smokers quit smoking. Ubisoft worked with Allen Carr who world renowned guru that has help millions qu...
I already previewed a good portion of Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway last month, so I skipped the latest build of the game during Ubidays. I did take a glance at what was going on at least and the only difference was that t...
Who's excited about this new Beyond Good & Evil game? Uh, everyone, that's who. If you guys are done screaming like teenage girls at the sight of American Idol's David Archuleta, you might want to take a look at these. Su...
Wait, what? What's Ubisoft doing with Soulcalibur IV? No need to worry folks, Ubisoft is simply handling the PAL distribution of the title. This is still Namco Bandai's little baby. The latest trailer for Soulcalibur IV ...
"Oh great, another snowboarding game. Whoa, wait a second. This snowboarding game actually looks good!"
That's pretty much what went through my head when Ubisoft showed off Shaun White Snowboarding during Ubidays in San Francisco a few weeks ago. Ubisoft is trying to do something completely knew with this genre and thanks to the help of Shaun White, it looks like they have a solid title here.
The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will be offering up a completely different experience over what the Wii will offer. The 360 and PS3 versions will be more geared towards players that are looking for a very realistic approach while the Wii version will be focusing on the casual player. Hit the jump for my impressions of Shaun White Snowboarding for the PlayStation 3 and Wii.
[Update: Added the new trailer] The only game that wasn't on display during Ubidays in San Francisco was the new Rayman Raving Rabbids game. It's a shame it wasn't around, as I would have loved to get my ass on the game....
