Dark Messiah

Usually when I heard that a brand has been spun off into some other take on the franchise I cringe instinctively.  That’s not exactly fair, because some of my favorite games have been born in this way:  Final Fantasy Tactics is an excellent game in it’s own right, thought it leveraged the most potent brand in the universe.  Heroes of Might and Magic itself was a spinoff, and you’d be a fool to hold that against it.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magic isn’t something I knew a lot about before this 1up article, other than I thought the name was kind of overwrought.  Go read it, and watch the video.  Source engine?  Genuinely intriguing first person melee?  Rowrr
