    lol yeah you'll find me in the depths of most C&C and Dune communities. I meet up with my RL buddies and play OpenRA mods over LAN every few months to relive the 90s glory days & occasionally make youtube vids lol.

    Thats a shame! We used to play Civ, HoMM, CStrike & Unreal back in the day but now days we only play RTS as TBS takes too long & some of the guys get sick from 1st person shooters (getting old lol). Plus there's so many great RTS options out there these days with OpenRA, Armada Fleet Ops, Sins of Solar Empire mods, plus all the re-releases of classics like Total Annihilation, Age of Mythology and Age of Empires etc.

    Unlike the definitive editions of the AoE games the new version of AoM is not a remake. They call it the Extended Edition as theyve taken the old engine and improved its graphics. They also created a new addon pack for it called Tale of the Dragon which adds new campaigns & factions based on Asian mythologies which is pretty cool.

    Ah, this I'd heard of. Never did get Tale of the Dragon as I've heard it was a pretty poor outsourcing job. :(

    ahh well I haven't played the Tale of the Dragon SP campaign yet so I can't speak to the quality of that but the new Asian races have been pretty fun in our multiplayer games as they have pretty different buildings and creatures. But yeah I can see the steam reviews are pretty bad haha. Good thing I got it on sale lol!
