    Would be good to see, I don't think you can buy AoE2 digitally at all right now.

    Sweet, nothing like playing a classic all over again. I don't even remember what happened to my physical copy of AoE2...

    Yeah, I had to resort to EBay a couple of months ago when I was checking out the Forgotten Empires mod and realized I didn't have the disks anymore.

    *good mod/expansion btw, but it definitely makes the game more challenging.

    Would love to see this on steam with modern working multiplayer.

    No muiltiplayer, not interested.

    The multiplayer on the retail version still works fine, so I would be surprised if it didn't work on the Steam release.

    Doesn't anyone find this slightly amusing that after all that smack talk Gabe did on Windows 8, Microsoft comes out with Steam exclusive re-release of a classic?

    I'll definitely pick this up but probably not for $20. Given how many times AoE3 went on sale, I have good feeling that we will see this in the sub $10 bracket soon and often.

    HPE probably begged them to let them work on it and was possibly in the end up to HPE what platform to use in terms of online and etc. and, since HPE did CS:GO and defense grid, and are very familiar with steam, it makes sense in the end

    ...no, $20 for a re-release made to work with modern computers and their native resolutions, slightly increased graphics (i do wish it were more, but oh well), a working, and actually useful server browser (AOE2's multiplayer was always a hassle, especially this long after it's been released), and jolt to the community in terms of modding, maps, and etc. with the steam workshop

    They should add Rise of Nations to that list too, that was a classic too. Countdown to Armageddon was classic stuff. lol

    There's an AoE Legacy pack for $28 which includes AoE 3 complete. Better to wait for a sale on that pack, it's a better deal assuming you don't have AoE 3 as well.
