    Anyone else excited for this one? It looks awesome.

    Do you think it will play on a 64 MB x600?

    I so can't wait for this one to come out. I have been cruising the web site for a release date.... can't find any? Any one out there know, I really hope soon. Any demos? All I have found were screen shots and a trailer. I went and reloaded AOE II to get back into the feel of the series.

    I heard Nov. 3 of this year might be the release date, but for some reason I think it will be closer to january of next year.

    I play AOE II almost every day. I am really good at it now. Yesterday I played a match in which I finished with 944 kills and only 177 deaths.

    I'm really excited for AOE III. I have read some early reviews. The buildings all collapse uniquely. It is now much more difficult (even impossible?) to take out buildings with militia, you now need artillary. The water looks very realistic and the graphics in general resemble a role playing game more than an RTS.

    There is also a new concept of the Home City, which takes the place of the Town Center.

    I haven't been following this game, but I enjoy Age of Empires II. I'm not good at it and I don't play it very often, but it is a great game for LAN play.

    It's hard to play alone, though. I can't seem to find much enjoyment from playing solo. I'll admit, I have played a few campaigns that were very fun (and single player), but I much prefer the LAN mode.

    I'll definately be looking into this game, once it gets closer to its release date.

    Ooh, you don't say? I was never a big fan of how hard to destroy the buildings in AoE are; I know it's a realism thing, but I guess I'm spoiled by Command and Conquer and StarCraft. (Watch me tear down this Command Center in 15 seconds with my REALLY SHARP CLAWS and CORROSIVE SPIT!) ;)

    Still, I enjoyed the first two (and actually even more so their most famous rip-off, Galactic Battlegrounds...but then again I'm a Star Wars fan), and the graphics do look spectacular. Very, very, very intricately detailed. *Kisses GeForce Go6800* *Burns lips* *Screams*

    I read somewhere that AOE III is supposed to support PixelShader 3.0
