Rise of Nations Gold

Microsoft Game Studios sends word that Rise of Nations, the debut RTS game from Brian Reynolds and Big Huge Games, has gone gold, and is slated to ship to North American stores May 20. In celebration of the news MSN Gaming Zone's Chat with Brian Reynolds will discuss the now-gold game at 8:00 PM EDT. Here's the description of RoN that accompanies the announcement:
Rise of Nations combines the epic scope of traditional turn-based strategy (TBS) games with the fast-paced action of RTS games. The game allows players to create new cities, improve their city infrastructure and expand national borders. Players have the option to win through military might using everything from slingshots to cannons to stealth bombers, corner the market on key commodities, and wheel and deal with a wide variety of Nations. Unlike other historical RTS games, Rise of Nations allows gamers to quickly play through eight historical epochs of time from the Ancient Age to the Information age, covering 6,000 years of history. Gamers can play a quick battle on any map as one of 18 nations, or play Conquer the World, the unique blending of TBS and RTS gameplay. This latest title from Big Huge Games Inc. founder Brian Reynolds (designer of Civilization 2 and Alpha Centauri) will be available for an estimated retail price of $49.95 U.S. For more information about Rise of Nations, visit the official site at http://www.riseofnations.com.

Yeah people, what are you doing talking about Rise of Nations on a Rise of Nations thread? Idiots!

About HL2 - I'll be very interested whenever it's confirmed that it is actually a very good game, unlike Half-Life. What an overrated piece of ... quite good gaming. Very good (but not excellent) single player, utterly uninteresting MP. Nothing more than a good game which became a bandwagon for reviews to try to top each other with praise. Horribly grainy shot on VE3D, not that that will stop people hailing it as the best screenshot ever.

About RoN ... I dunno bothersome, you don't seem very sure I'll certainly check reviews out and if a demo appears I'll give it a shot.

EDIT: One of these days I'll learn to spel weel and speak grammer goodly without needing to edit my posts.

Cheers,
