    Nice, currently have them all on DVD but haven't even touched AOE3 yet and haven't played 2 in years. 2 HD and 3 double pack is 20.99 on Steam, might grab them and give the discs to my dad. Shame AOM isn't on Steam as well.

    This game always was in HD. :confused::confused::confused:

    Shame they cant just make a new Age of Empires instead of rehashing the old games.

    I think you could hack the res so it would be 16:10, 16:9, whatever. So technically it is "HD", but from the trailer, it looks as though they are just using that as a term to mean better graphics and features all round.

    You had to hack the game to get it working at 1080p.

    Max res in the game was 1280x1024 which is higher than 1280 x 720 (technically HD) and you could hack the game to play at an even higher res. ;)

    Is this only going to be available via Steam or could I buy it from Amazon?

    I loved this game back when it first game out. Probably the first PC game that really got me hooked.

    Bought a 4-pack and put the others up in the classifieds if anyone else wanted to save a little on the individual price :thumbsup:

    Mine mine mine mine mine mine mine mine mine mine

    Online MP? I think I haven't been this excited since the launch of SimCity!!! Ok maybe I get excited easily (not what she said).

    I am very happy about this.

    edit;

    I wonder if they increased the max unit count/map size limits as well. Or if Steam Workshop may support that.

    I wonder, could this be one of those 'never meet your heroes' kind of deals.

    I have such fond memories of this, but I was about 11 and more easily impressed. I wonder how it has aged.

    This and AOE3 Complete are 20.99, reckon it's worth getting that, or go in a 4 pack for AOE2 and wait until 3 is on sale? I guess it would have to be on sale at £7 odd or less to make it worthwhile.

    You talking about a saving of about £3?

    Both games are great :)

    Probably not even that if the AOE3 sale price is £7. 4 pack works out at £11 odd each. Only asking cause I can't remember what price 3 is when its always in the Steam sales.
