Age of Empires, 2, and 3 coming in new Definitive Editions

Looks like we might do some Comp Stomp Rise of Nations if anyone is interested. Tonight at 8:30 PM EST.

Thanks for the heads up! I’ll try to stop by but i have relatives coming into town and odds are will probably be with them (they haven’t given me a set time yet).

That’s a lot more intriguing to me than the US civ they added.

Sweet, I hope we can tech them up to Wakanda levels.

Watching this video I’m reminded of Age of Mythology.
New Troops are unlocked by selecting different nations (much like selecting a minor god) and these new units use a new resource, Influence, much like Myth units use Faith to get unique units.

It would be awesome if Tantalus could touch up of Age of Mythology next. I’m still hoping Adam Isgreen means to go through with whatever he was planning for AoM IP.

You and I both.

Yep. I never played AoM but when I tried “enhanced edition” I couldn’t play it. I can’t understand what’s happening on the screen. I played other early 3d games like Warcraft 3 (not reforged) with no problems but AoM is inppssible.

Speaking of Age of Mythology, did anyone here get the Collector’s Edition? If so, was the copy of Bulfinch’s Mythology the Modern Library edition? I can’t remember if I purchased the collector’s edition, or if I bought this copy of Bulfinch’s separately. Looking online there are some postings of collector’s editions having a figurine, and I have no recollection of that. I do have a vague memory of a “Making of…” dvd. If this copy of Bulfinch’s Mythology is from AoM it is the only thing I have left from that edition.

If I still have mine, it’s buried in a box somewhere and I’d have to turn my closet upside-down to find it. My memories are telling me it was a fairly small paperback but I can’t say if it’s that same one you have.

I do remember the minotaur figure, though.

It’s not Age of Mythology, but this seems interesting.

Total War has so many videos about how it’s gone downhill after Total War Empires.

For one, they completely messed up how arrows and projectiles work. On top of that lots of games released with lots of bugs.

I’m more of a Age of Empires 3 DE person then 2 or 1 DE, but I can’t get 3 to run on my hardware these days.

1 would be so cool if it was more like 2 DE. The maps are just so bland, the triggers are nonexistant.

Any idea what is causing the problem with 3? I’ve never run into issues running the original or DE.

My older laptop is like 5 years old (Doesn’t have the specs) and my newer one went from lightning fast to potatoe over the few years I’ve owned it (Has the specs but lags at quarter speed during playtime).

It’s fan goes super loud when I’m just basically surfing the internet and it lags on Youtube sometimes.

This thing was 700 dollars from Costco and was an HP, but it’s had so many failures. Everything is fragile and the batteries or power cables just constantly fail, need to be replaced.

Two new DLC factions coming - Poles and Bohemians.

Red Bull Wololo 5 is going to have a lan final. The announcement sounds like t is the last event in the series. Dont know if that means Red Bull will continue doing things with AoE2, move to AoE4, or they are stopping altogether.

When will it start? The final.

It looks like the lan event is the 13th - 19th of September. A group stage on 13-17th, then a final on 18th-19th. Qualifiers this weekend if I’m reading it correctly.
