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.

My favourite Age of Empires game, and one of my favourite RTS games ever. Can't wait.

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.

I am sitting here trying not to hyperventilate.

I love this game and I will buy it Day One.

I really hope this is testing the waters for Age of Empires IV.

I will buy this.

I saw that game in the registry,it was called Rise of Nations Gold.

RoN is a little messy:
"Portions" of the game are owned by Microsoft so there are still some residual issues to sort out. Although Wikipedia says it uses a proprietary engine, I've theorised that BHG used AoE's as a base.
That ultimately depends on what the portions actually are. If they're related to the engine as I suspect then a remake would be possible without needing to reach an agreement with Microsoft.

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.

I loved this game so fucking god damn much. It was just awesome...

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

I played it last year on a friend's computer. Still holds up well IMO.

I've been playing it since 2003, it still holds up today.
