Default Heroes of Might and Magic 6

Noticed there are quite many people who used to play older HoMM releases on this forum, so decided to make a thread about upcoming release of Heroes 6 (October 13, 2011). Great news is that a demo version is already available for download, already downloaded it, sadly my PC ain't strong enough to run in (how unexpected). http://might-and-magic.ubi.com/heroes-6/en-GB/home/ Link for official updates on HoMM6, there's also a link for the demo download in there.

System requirements are here:

OS: Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7
CPU: Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.0 Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 5000+ @ 2.6 Ghz
RAM: 1 GB Windows XP and 1.5GB Vista / 7
Graphics: 512 MB Graphics Memory, Pixel Shader 3.0, Vertex Shader 3.0
Sound Card: DirectX 9 Compatible

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gxejyj4My-8 Here is a great review of the game, I'd do a text review myself, but obviously I can't since I can't run the demo. From the review the game looks great, the animations are amazing, the graphics look really, REALLY good, tons of new skills, old stuff from heroes 2&3 also added, already saw some artifacts from Heroes 3 in the review, the old soundtrack from Heroes 3 (which fit the game SO well).
There are also some cons though: All rare resources combined into one, it's called bloodstone, kinda kills the old HoMM releases "feature" where every faction would have specific rare resource to make the best tire creatures and the resource grow for the creature would be higher in the faction, they took out the spell altars where you'd get a random spell, the magic guilds probably got deleted too since you get spells by spending spell points (Pretty sad in my opinion, it was so fun to get random implosion and just own at the start or struggle to get resurrection through the entire game), also the area of control stuff sounds bullocks, don't see how stealing resource gain from the enemy was a bad feature, not to mention the debuff stuff discourages you to attack the enemy at his castle.
Didn't notice more cons through the 40 minute review, or just forgot some, but the game definitely has more pros than cons.
Sorry for my punctuation errors

Yeah, Heroes 3 were definitely the best, Heroes 4 were terrible and after ubisoft bought the rights for heroes, heroes 5 were also pretty nice. Still have all heroes CDs. :P
