Why, Godric (and Aidan, Anwen, Fiona and Nadia), you've never looked so good!

Sadly, I've yet to experience Capybara Games' critically acclaimed RPG-esque puzzler, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes. Unlike some gamers, though, I can't blame it on the fact that I don't have a DS.

If that describes you--and if you own a PS3 or an Xbox 360--you'd do well to keep an eye out for the release of the Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes remake that will hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade later this year.

As evidenced in the image above, the game's graphics are being redrawn for this "HD remake." That's not the only change that's being made, of course. Chief among them: Online battles will now be possible, with co-operative and four-player versus modes currently being planned.

For more information on (and images of) this surefire hit, check out IGN's hands-on impressions from GDC 2010.

Nintendo is surely missing out when they don't allow for wireless matchups.

I agree 100 percent. I sure hope Nintendo gets over its fear of online gaming by the time it launches its next system(s).

I don't understand it. It's so hard to do ANYTHING online with ANYONE in a Nintendo game, what with friend codes that are different for every game and not so stable networks...I just don't understand them.

Honestly, the only Wii game that has provided me with an enjoyable online experience is Mario Kart Wii. I'm not sure why Nintendo hasn't offered the same sort of system for its other games.

Oh, and friend codes suck. I just don't get the point of them for most gamers. Parental controls (and parental monitoring) FTW, IMO.
