Yes, the news was released at the start of this year (2005), i was waiting till admin got the news forum up but i dont know what has happened to that.

Age of Empires 3 will be avialbale in the second half of 2005 but early second half (around august). It is a little way off but atleast then they'll have Gcards that can handle the extreme graphics of this game. Yuo can notice the fine details already, like mist and smoke form cannons drifting and houses with excellent shadows. The light glows and reflects of shinny armor with excellent lighting effects. Thsi game has a 3D Environment to die for, just have a look for your self (below)

It looks excellent...



Cant wait. To see 5 more pics, visit www.ensemblestudios.com

Bah. Starcraft was far more entertaining that AoE2. That whole "age" concept is stupid IMHO.

Empire earth gets outta control, and Blob, with your 9800XT i dont think your card could handle any better models. The horses are the only thing i can see that are square. Remember, Rome: Total War has horses that look like my mobo box (squared and cubed).

I guees we all have different tastes, now come on though, no game is perfect.

That ability doesn't impress me anymore, it's been around since Star Wars Force Commander, something like four or five years ago I guess (I played it on a 366MHz P3!) It just means that they have more detailed models than they really need for an RTS.

I just don't like ages in general, it's a personal preference. I stopped playing games that used them at Star Wars Galactic BattleGrounds (based on AoE2 engine). It is always seems to be a race to the next age, first one to the last age wins.

Starcraft is about as close to a perfect game as I have played in 25 years of playing games. I am staggered that there are no (announced) plans to make a sequel. Either they are making one and are keeping it under tight wraps, or they are afraid of messing with the image of their "gold standard" game. It has to have been discussed in some boardroom meeting!

Sadly, as much as I like the game universe, I also do not care for stealth games. So I suspect I will not care for Ghost.

When the heck is that going to come out, anyway? Isn't it something like two years late at this point?
