As if I had not bought everything AOE-related ever on release date. Amateurs.

This is a pretty sweet deal, though. I mean, seriously, fuckers, buy this game. It's loads of fun


When we're already talking about age of empires, anyone seen this?

Download got to 100%, then when I clicked "Install" Microsoft's stupid Steam-wannabe crashed! Upon restarting the program (twice. the first time it refused to believe my password), the download was back at 0%. I am now redownloading with avengance. It better work this time or I'm going to want ALL of my money back.

edit: Downloaded. But they've run out of CD keys so I can't install! How do you even run out of keys? Aren't they generated based on a pattern?

I've had this game for years now but haven't played it more than a couple of times because the necessary specs are pretty demanding. However, I have all AoE games and they're all brilliant, even the first game is still amazing now.

So yeah, buy it you fucks.

Ugh, silverlight. Can anything be worse than flash? I'm not sure, but Microsoft are sure trying to make it seem so.

I know, it doesn't look good, but it's pretty much the same guys that made the first ones (lots of people from ensemble studios), so I'm pretty confident that they'll make some great gameplay.

Actually it looks like the terrible game battle for troy. Think for a bunch of sameish levels in a bad-looking environment with half-assed RTS gameplay and clonky control groups.
