Is it worth it?
I have all the AOE's, I, and II. All i need is this but im wondering is it worth it to buy it now on sale? instead of $40 its only $10? So is it worth it to get if im a big fan of all the other ones?

I just did. What got me into buying it is
1. I love the series, and this is the last installment so it must be good
2. from $40 to $10, HELL YEA
3. I just want a new game

I bought III when it came out several years, and now I just bought the complete collection. It's a steal at 10 bucks, you won't be disappointed.

I caved to, i mean for 8quid you cant go wrong - anyone experiencing any sound issues now and again, after a few minutes (hours) of playing the music stops then so does the SFX afterwards. I've tried turning off my speakers, turnnig the sound on/off again, reloading a game save. The only thing that seems to fix it is quitting the game and startng up again - its nothing major, just bloody annoying.

Is it possible that this game will go for less in the winter sale? With finals coming up I won't get around to playing it until then anyway, so I could wait. I know MS has basically given away this game in the past ($.10 when GFWL was launched), so I know they'd be willing to go lower under the right circumstances. I have a thing for not paying more for a game than the lowest it has ever been on sale, particularly not 100x that price point. I know 10 cents was a one-shot thing, so I'd be happy to settle for 50x.. but with everyone jumping at it for $10, MS doesn't have much of an incentive to go lower :/

Before anyone criticizes me for being cheap/starving the developers, Ensemble Studios is defunct and MS makes enough money as it is. I spend plenty on indie bundles and the like when they come along.

Paying 9€ for a 2005 game isn't that great really, its not a steal especially, that the game is still 40 bucks standard is rather what's a steal, the other way though. You can get a 2012 AAA-game at the same price.

Also if you really want such a game AOE2 might even be a better option if you can actually get it somewhere these days.

amen to that. 10's nothing so zlurrrrrpp there goes my money!

Eh, screw it. Given how well it's selling (still in the top 5), I really doubt Microsoft will feel inclined to drop the price further for a sale that begins in less than a month. I've picked it up for 10, and hopefully the extra money (beyond what other games from 2005 are selling for) will go toward continued ESO server maintenance & encourage other Age of Empire games to be ported to Steam.

The Russian steam store currently has this at 136 rubles, which is in the $4-5 range I was aiming for. Oh well.. demand must be lower there.

akanashin Nov 25, 2012 @ 10:37am
