Age of Wonders 3


#2530

Hah, you know it buddy. I love AoW. AoW sci-fi? SOLD.


#2531

Curious.

I’m guessing the planetfall is the Archons or Syrons.

Not sure I believe this or not.

On the one hand, seems a radical departure from the AoW formula.

On the other hand, I heard a similar rumour a long time ago. We’ll i’ll be at the expo when it is revealed.


#2532

On one hand, I’m still excited to see whatever Triumph makes. On the other hand, boo to leaving fantasy!


#2533

I just hope it’s not all grimdark. That would be a big bummer for me.


#2534

OK, now that changes things. What a cool idea.


#2535

#2536

I want to go!!!


#2537

I SHALL FIND AND TACKLE EACH OF THEM INDIVIDUALLY.


#2538

Historic low on the collection you guys.


#2539

Over at the official forums someone was speculating the new game would be akin to Empire of the Fading Suns.

That sounds pretty cool.

We’ll find out soon enough.

#2541

hahah.

well thanks to the joys of on-board Wi-Fi I’m now going to read more about EotFS.

And maybe brainstorm a more memey name for such a game.


#2542

Did you never play it?


#2543

It was released in 1998.

We got our first computer in 1999 and I started playing games then.

AoW1.
Thief.
Battlezone.
Pharaoh demo
Starcraft

My academic work ethos suffered that year.

That’s also when Eminem blew up.

I was 14.

tldr: EoFS was before my time.


#2544

1996 actually.


#2545

You sir, are today’s MVP. I was just urging my brother to pick this up so we could do a PBEM game.


#2546

Happy to spread the love.

What is up with GOG’s pricing on this? Deluxe edition plus expansions almost $30 Aussie dollars with 50% discounts on the expansions and 75% on the deluxe editions…this is more than twice the price at say WinGameStore.


#2548

There’s also "You get free Wallet funds (our Fair Price Package) to offset the regional pricing. ", but it’s usually too much clicking and too much math for me, despite how much better it is (to me) to have a non-steam copy.


#2549

Oh really? I didn’t know that.

I have to say Steam’s pricing for New Zealand is pretty damn generous…even with games listed at the same US dollar price as Steam on other sites, the NZ converted price on Steam is almost always cheaper.
