As a childish retard, I take great offense at your comment, Osmodius.

No no, you're right. The old way is the proper way.

Less stylized, more choking the life out of one of my favorite games...

If graphics choke the life out of things perhaps you should go watch a HD movie.

Hmm, growing an online capital even when I'm logged off..

I think someone has been playing a bit too much Farmville.

Any bets on how long it takes for Microsoft to inevitably cancel this MMO, just as they have with every other MMO attempted for them?

Asheron's Call would like to say, "Hello" after ten years of being active.

This is just a free game that's probably going to be about as 'deep' and 'vast' as you can expect from a free game. It still looks like a promising distraction for the evening with your mates, though.

Keep in mind something like Battlefield: Heroes. Great IP, great idea to take the art form down to a cartoony, not-much-work-to-make form that still looks visually pleasing, and throw out something onto the market that's free and just 'fun'.

i actually like the look of the toon graphics as opposed to what AoE III had

plus looks like they were smart enough to go back to the swords and spears

as opposed to guns which leads to rather boring fights in the time period they were in last

AoE3 isn't part of the franchise, it's just pretending that it is. They should be building from AoE2.

that was basically my point :P

AoE 3 while it had some positives to it, it really had an issue of we advanced to the point in history where combat between races all came down to 2 lines of people shooting at each other with highly inaccurate weapons with insane reload times until one row fell down

vaporware.

MS never finishes its mmo's.

Unless this one belongs in 1995 and passes MS qaulity standards.

I hope their standards are up to your level of qaulity.
