I did it. I’ve beaten all of the purely turn-based, grid-based Might and Magic games. Well, I did it with the older ones at least. I understand Might and Magic 10 goes back to that style, to a moderate degree. After a long break from the series, a few weeks ago, I decided to give game #6 a try. I’ve already played for a good bit and I’d like to focus on enjoying the game instead of writing about it, so this wan’t be a play-through diary. Instead, I’ll go through the game for a bit, to explain what it’s all about, and then just play through a single dungeon and the quests it involves.

I’ll be honest. I’ve kind off been cheating lately, playing several different games but not really sticking through the end of any of them. Sure, The Darkest Dungeon is early access so I guess it’s OK I’m not going through that one all the way, but i started the Witcher 2 months ago and left it about half-way through. I also have a game of Crusader Kings II running, with a draft for a posting only half-written. This one, I really wanted to give an honest try, though. It’s Might and Magic, after all.
Might and Magic: World of Xeen is the worlds of Might and Magic IV and V combined. I’ve completed it in record time for a Might and Magic game (at least for me), so now I want to write about it. I write a lot of deep stuff that feels smart for me right now, but will end up cringe worthy at some point in the future, but no one really cares about that. Instead, I’ll explain how the game works and then run you through the very first quest with the default party. I will also be updating and possibly adding some pages to the blog.
There was a marathon during the past week and a half, so Might and Magic III: Isles of Terra is now officially on the completed list. I intend to make a set of quick and easy guides providing information I couldn’t find online when I was playing the game, but for now, I thought I’d make a sort of “looking back” report. It’s a big and lengthy game, so my impressions have changed, several times during my playing of it.
Isles of Terra is taking longer than I thought, in part due to distraction, but mostly due to my unwillingness to commit to it for some reason. Most of my sessions are large chunks of time, so I keep delaying and eventually end up procrastinating on Reddit instead of playing. It’s a ridiculous thing to say, because I’m avoiding playing a game instead of avoiding some actual work, but there it is. Anyways, here’s me playing through a dungeon – the Slithercult Stronghold.Continue reading
It’s been a while, but I’m keeping up with my plans, albeit at a very slow pace. I’ve beaten Might and Magic Book One and Book Two, so now I’m moving on, to Might and Magic III – Isles of Terra. With this one, instead of making up stories, I’ll give an overview of what I’m up to and what the game is about.Continue reading
I was one dungeon away from completing the game last time, but by now, it was obvious it would take a lot of grinding or potion abuse to get past the last major battle. This is exactly what I did.Continue reading
Damn, that’s a sweet title! As promised, I’ve been traveling through time and finally completing some long-standing objectives. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, but I made some progress.Continue reading
I said I’d get stronger. I went through my notes, did some research, and BOY did I get stronger. As it turns out, your average high-level Might and Magic II party is miles ahead of your average high-level Might and Magic Book One party.Continue reading
After trying to get through the Dead Zone (I wasn’t able to), I decided to give Dragon’s Dominion a second shot. First, I wanted to fight the Dragon Lord, though.Continue reading
