Coming out today isn't it? As much as I hate Steam I need a new game to play and if I buy through steam can I play it within a few hours?

EDIT: Just looked on Steam and it says 25th... so nevermind this lol :\.

Most stores still have it listed for release today (24th).

I wish walmart would get the special edition... I know I want that but I'd like to get my $6 discount. :D

does walmart have the dvd or cd version?


hmm walmart says

"Preorder this item today and it should ship on 10/24/2006 "

so if it ships today, the soonest you will get it would be for 25th

Thats if you order it from the site. Some stores will probably get it today but I think our town here is too small for our Walmart to get it today.

If they had that one I'd run right down and grab it now. :p

GoGamer.com only has the standard edition listed as well.

I think I'll be waiting on this one anyway. I had 4 freaking days off in a row with nothing to do, but now I have to work 4 days in a row. I doubt I'll have much time to play it.

Looks to be CD... they might have a DVD standard edition too though, its hard to say.

The Limited Edition is probably DVD but I'm not sure about that either.

Looks like they are for sale through an amazon marketplace seller:
http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Messiah-of-Might-Magic/dp/B000FSQD9Y/sr=8-1/qid=1161691988/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-8742631-8929534?ie=UTF8&s=videogames

http://www.amazon.com/Dark-Messiah-Might-Magic-Limited/dp/B000GTA7HG/sr=8-2/qid=1161691988/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2/104-8742631-8929534?ie=UTF8&s=videogames

It says both are CD-ROM versions on those pages.

GoGamer has the standard edition for $44.90:
http://www.gogamer.com/Dark-Messiah-of-Might-and-Magic-Front-Page_stcVVproductId5984210VVcatId444710VVviewprod. htm

Its still marked as a preorder though.

Buy.com has the standard edition in stock but its overpriced at $55:

EB Has both but they are still pre-order:

It better not be CD, game install is around 6-10 GB, and how many ****ing cds will it be?

This is getting ridiculous

what do these companies think? people have 200-600 dollar video card, 300-1000 dollar CPUs, and we can't afford a 25 dollar dvd-rom/35 dollar dvd-rw?

Good to hear. :thumbsup:

BTW, do you think the limited edition will actually have a wierd shaped box? Every store that has it listed has the box shot sitting horizontal like that.

no clue, maybe by box design they are saying that only limited edition will have widescreen support, you never know.

Before you know it we'll be buying seperate Fullscreen and Widescreen versions of games, just like DVDs. :D

Im hoping a store has it on my way home from work today... really want this game.

I really hope theres a lot of influence from Arx Fatalis in this. That game had a lot of style and really nice atmosphere. I know this is more of a first person action game than an RPG, but I could see some of the influence just from the early beta and demo.

I want to see more of those goblins as well. They are just like the ones in Arx... funny as hell. :D

*sniff sniff*
"uhg! Me need bath!"
*stab*
"ahhh! Not kill me!!!!"

when i get the game, i would like to have all powers from the start, it will be more fun this way.

not like in HL2, when the best weapon you get for the last level, and use it for maybe 20 minutes.

Then theres no sense of accomplishment... I don't see that being fun...

I was always a fan of finding the best weapons in a game early on in very hidden areas, and with rather limited ammo.

i called two walmarts, at one some i believe some older Indian lady picked up in eletronics, she couldn't even pronouce dark messiah correctly, i was told they don't have it, not sure if i should believe her, probably didn't even know what she was looking for. at second i was put on hold for 20+ minutes so just hang up.

best buy, fry's still closed

Sounds like most stores are getting it tomorrow.

I'm more interested in seeing the reviews right now though. I know I wont have time to play it a whole lot until next week, but I'm curious as to how long it is and what the big reviewers think of it overall.

This game kind of lost a lot of steam after the MP demo kind of like Call of Juarez didnt it?

I hope they improved MP a lot or else its kinda bleh, I expect it to be a short game if its more adventure than RPG :/
