It's like...worth 5 dollars now. I'm sure you could find it for less than 10 bucks :p


Aren't you the one who said something about wearing 100 dollar sneakers at one point? Sell your shoes and buy TC :xp:

Seems like we'll get a new line every day. Now its


" THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER

1200 BC - THE TROJAN WAR"

Now there's a big gap from the previous 'date'. Reckon they'll jump from historical event to another till the one of the game is reached? Hope it won't take that long then since I want an AoE with OOLD armies

This is great news. I played an insane amount of this game last year. I have tried to play this year but stupid new router won't allow it. I had been wondering if they would make a new AoE.

Starts jumping around like a wild monkey.


There has been no game as straight, as simple, challenging and to the point as AOEII.

Let's hope this baby makes it.

I kill you.

*bang*


EDIT: It is possible that AOEIII is taking an Empire Earth style appoach. From the primitive to the techno.
