you must be a young one Visigoth to say that.
AoE 1 released in 1997, 2 released in 1999.
I was far to busy in university for the first one and starting my work life for the second...

If I had more time to play it or if it was discounted steeper I would buy it in a flash. But for just 10% off I will wait to see what people say about it - I think $9.99 would sell like hotcakes...

BTW, interesting side note, AoE was where "drfish" came from, I used to make "Agetoons" back in the day... :lol:

I'm kinda dissapointed they haven't updated much of the old game and i suppose there is no new expansion or what not. Imo, this was a better game.

I've got it pre-loaded. It is being released 10am PST. The development team is doing an AMA on reddit at 12pm PST. Too bad work is going to make me miss it. I plan on spending lots of time tonight playing though. Looking forward to hookup up to my projector. What fun!
