So many people mentioning MOM, and this being MOM2, yet Stardock has officially said that Elemental is NOT MOM2. They were in negotiations over the lisence with Atari, but it seems like they didn't get it. And not there are rumors about Atari planing MOM2.
Hell, Stardock has even informed us all Elemental is NOT MOM2. http://tgnforums.stardock.com/?aid=165429 or have a read at http://www.masterofmagic2.com/
Sure Elemental might have some simularitys, but what game doesnt pull off some design off of another?
Anyways, I'll for sure be playing Elemental. But as to when, I do not know. I just had to get a loan to cover some repairs for my appartment...sigh.
