as spotted by Knurek, thought it deserved its own thread

this is how they're saying heroes of might and magic III looked to make the HD improvement seem that much more significant



uhhh what

edit: how the original HOMM3 really looked like

is the title that confusing? everyone does bullshots, but rather than making the newer game look better than what it ends up looking, the "new" refers to making the older game look worse

I think he's talking about a new way of bullshot ting where they make the original look worse than what it really was.

They did blow the pixel up. That always makes things look worse, but I don't think they did it on purpose. Maybe they did.

you didnt provide a comparison when people like me didnt know what M&M3 looked like

Are there really no false advertisement laws or court rulings that might give grounds to a lawsuit? This is taking an old existing product and falsely changing it.

It took me a moment to see what you were saying, perhaps "new/updated bullshot techique" would've been a better title

I don't know if it's possible with HoMM engine (2D sprites), but I'd like to see the final version, especially whether the "HD" actually means higher resolution pseudo-3D models for modern screens.

I thought the video looked weird, though.

So you're saying that they faked it by creating whole new pixel art for the characters/enemies that made them look worse than they actually did?

Not familiar with the game at all but could it have had a low quality setting on the original that made them look different or perhaps a different version entirely?
