So given that it’s going to be included in a SR4 re-packaging later on, I guess this will be some kind of “expandalone?”

Either way, I say hell yes.

I haven’t touched my backer copy yet, since I’d like a fairly polished single-player before diving in. But I hope it lives up to the promise of excitement that made me back it in the first place.

Plus, the Steam holiday sales will happen just a few months after it launches, which will give Firaxis the time to out some patches and publish some DL. Like most new games, they’ll probably drop the price around 33% or something during the holidays, maybe 50% if we’re really lucky.

I, too, would like to know. Because I honestly think that most of the games that depict women in constrained and stereotypical roles would actually change very little, in terms of player experience, if those aspects were removed.

I’m reminded of when Divinity: Original Sin first launched their Kickstarter; the lead female character on the promotional art had a bare midriff. They quietly changed that to give her more reasonable armor after a few days or weeks, and nothing was lost, except for a few idiots raving about political correctness.

Hm, interesting. I’ve never heard of the franchise before, but I’m getting Torchlight/Diablo vibes from what little I’ve seen, which is good. I think I’ll give it a shot when it comes out.

Also, I’m cautiously excited to see they’re launching with SteamOS support out the gate while simultaneously being backed by a major publisher. I’m curious to see how this trend will move over the next few years.

Depressing. Age of Empires was the franchise that got me into gaming, and I was really excited by all the HD re-releases they’d been doing of old Microsoft RTS games. If this is the end result, though, colour me disappointed.

Give me a real Age of Empires RTS, optimized for the mouse and keyboard, and I’ll throw 60$ at you right now.
