Age of Empires II is coming back, to Steam, with steamworks and workshop!!! From Hiddem Path!!! And there is no news of it on the site.
Giantbomb is really slow on the news these days. ;-(
Yes! but the visuals look the same and they just zoomed out the camera or the POV which is depressing but IDC because now i can have it in steam forever and play with my brothers online easily! Also it is really funny that they are using steam multiplayer etc. instead of windows live. But that just makes the game 1000x better windows live is terrible.
The original AOE was the first real videogame I ever owned, and I sunk an astounding number of hours into that second game, i'm going to have to pick this up. I still have the Age of the Conquerors exapnsion PC box in my closet. Oh the memories...
OH GOD YES ALREADY PREORDERED AS SOON AS I SAW
I still owned boxed copies of this and the expansion (with the jumbo badass PC game boxes they used to have. They are both complete with manuals and everything. I cherish these games). This is my alltime favourite game. Words cannot describe how excited I am to be able to play this without having to do a bunch of crazy stuff to get it to run on a modern monitor.
Starcraft will probably take a back seat to this once it comes out. I played this a fair amount on the Zone back in the day. With the mechanics I have from Starcraft now I will probably be pretty okay at it. When I played it a while back I had a blast.
Yes! Yes! Yes!
The first PC game I ever owned and I played it to death. It's where I owned my 'build walls and hide behind them' technique :D
LOL, my first RTS was Age of Mythology but it seems like build walls and hide was the first tactic newbies used. I got pwned on 'hard' difficulty and online though.
Age of mythology shits on all the other age of empires games!
Considering the original supported resolutions of up to 1280x1024 (though the sprites look lower) I get the impression the only thing that's 'HD' about this is the aspect ratio, but it's still cool that they're doing this and releasing it in a way that seems logical. Although the "Available on Steam! Pre-purchase on our website!" made me chuckle.
Let's just hope they haven't messed with the glorious MIDI soundtrack.
I use to play this many years ago and I loved t but... $20 for an old ass game... are you fucking kidding me? This game shouldn't cost more than $5 at most. Its still a good game but for that asking price for a 14 year-old re-release?
Yea, 20$ is a tad high but 5 bucks is what you think this is worth? I mean even re-releases of games normally are 10-15 bucks and 20 is hardly highway robbery or anything. I guess i just have lots of fond memories of this.

$5? Are you serious? Blizzard still charges $15 for Starcraft on their site and a lot of old games on GOG are 10 to 15 bucks. $20 might be a tiny bit steep, but $5 would be giving it away. It cost some money to integrate with Steam and all of that.
