Yep I found this compo to be ( sadly on my part ) very easy.
Just finished MM6 for the 6th time since its release way back in 1999 ( bought the GOG drm free version to play through this time), all completed by Jan 8th:)
Now just got to castle Harmondale in MM7.
Now if only GOG would get MM7,8 &9 as DRM free versions.
I love this series, shame the developer went bust.
However, in case you did not know, Jon Van Canegham helped found a new company called TRION, who had started making an MMO called Heroes of Telaara. However, JVC left TRION under something of a cloud in April 2009.
As of November 2009 he has now allegedly joined EALA and in the new brand leader for the Command & Conquer series .
Let's hope he does a good job, and EA give him the backing to re-ignite a RPG series designed by him. It won't of course be Might & Magic, because Ubisoft hold that licence now, and apart from Dark Messiah of Might & Magic, are screwing it up royally.
A new JVC RPG series featuring a full 4-6 party members and going back to hardcore RPG values, with a player viewpoint like the M&M series of old would be awesome !
