So bought...

Jump to 43 minutes.

They are calling it Extended Edition so probably no real graphical upgrade but proper widescreen support and steam matchmaking would be awesome.

Bought as soon as released. Not my favorite game in the franchise, but it has hands down the best campaign. Arkantos was really cool.

Age of Empires II HD eventually became a really well done, definitive release. Hope they carry the lessons learned there over to this.

I'm sure they learned a lot about bringing the older engines up to modern standards, and the various pitfalls associated with that type of development.

RoN is a little messy:

There are actually two RoN Gold apps in the registry: 13900 and 33000. My guess is that one listing is Microsoft's and the other BHG's.

Though it's gonna be a pain to play to where I left off if saves aren't transferable.

Is this just nostalgia though? Will the game still hold up? Or will it be shitty in this day and age?

Ooh, very nice.

Hopefully the launch will be a bit smoother than AoE2, but the game has got a lot better, so fingers crossed for this one.
