Age of Empires 3 Tease?

"THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER" screams the Ensemble Studios Website in what is presumably a tease for the imminent announcement of Age of Empires 3. Thanks HomeLAN Fed.

Seriously, Ensemble studios needs to start doing something new. Age of Empires, Age of Empires 2, Galactic Battlegrounds, Age of Mythology (did I miss any?)

We've seen it. It was fun. It isn't fun anymore. I don't want to advance through another age. Do something new.

Alternatively, get bought by Eidos, and make a Shellshock version of Age of Empires...

"Still can't beat Ground Control 2 for actually using tactics in battle"

Try to battle the AI on the harder difficoulties, and see if you can win without using actual tactics in the field.

Bleh, i hated AoE and it's spawn, but RoN rocked the house

Agreed with nin. I could never really play many RTS games, though RoN gives me a stiffy.

Still can't beat Ground Control 2 for actually using tactics in battle.

So RoN is good? I recently got into strategy games, and have been seeing the gold edition of that around, and thought it looked pretty decent. Worth picking up then?


Oh, hell yeah...I was really getting burnt out on RTS games until I played RON...

I believe so, I see RoN as the true sucessor to AoE.

What RoN lacked in singleplayer, Thrones and Patriots added. It's good fun and quite polished.

Rise of Nations was like super AoE, so I will be comparing AoE3 to RoN.

Age of Mythology sucked, and I was a solid fan of Age of Empires.

AoE2 didn't take AoE far enough.

Rise of Nations was like super AoE, so I will be comparing AoE3 to RoN.

And yes, Myth kicks ass.

One of my fond memories of early RTS playing was that of a six hour game of Age of Empires, where all the gold had been mined, and we were throwing units that required only meat/wood at each other. Eventually someone figured out how to make gold by trading with the docks, and I followed suit building myself a nice set of cataphracts as shock troops.

Oddly enough, I never played Age of Empires 2, I'm not sure why, perhaps because I was still enthralled with StarCraft at the time.

Age of Empires and (especially) Age of Kings were two of the best RTS titles ever made. Anyone who compares the latter to Age of Myth needs to get themselves checked out mentally. AoK had a score of playable civiliations, with unique architecture, unique units and technology, and unique playing styles...years ahead of its time. I still play it. AoM had only three that seemed like more only because they gave you frivolous options, and most games were ridiculously quick and boring. It went into the gaming box after a few days.

And the Age series can't be compared to the Total War or Myth series in any fashion.

AOK was the second best game of all time (after Quake2).

If AOK3 and Quake4 come out this or next year, it could be the peak of computer gaming history.

Oh man, I can't wait for a Myth 4 to come out. I really loved Myth 3, mostly due to the music. All of them are great, however.

Am I the only one waiting for a spiritual successor to the Myth series? Myth 3 pretty much sucked, but the gameplay model (relatively small groups of units that can be controlled as individuals, and no resource farming/unit production aspect) is one of my favorites of all time.

To me, these games never involve all that much "strategy" and a whole lot of what amounts to zerg rushing..
