metacritic 93/100 ties for top 15 pc games of all time


If you buy this from retail you still have to use steam and you get the benifits of being able to download it from internet if you want! (and rome total war/barbarian invasion free edit: only steam bought pre purchase) For steam purchased games the preload should start in a day or two, this is going to be one of the best games of the year if not of all time! so excited!

demo screens

I think it ships on Tuesday for a Wednesday store date, but I could be wrong.

I am getting it for sure, the demo blew me away (and I wasn't a huge fan of the last few).

Ordered this morning off Steam! proliferazor, there for sure will be a pre-load? If so that's really, really good news as my net isn't the fastest. I was a bit annoyed that FEAR 2 didn't have one.

I can't wait for this game. I just beat the 1v2 sea battle in the demo, damn it looks good.

I am a HUGE civ fan, now a game like civ and you can control battles....WOW.

Ugh, looks like pre-loading won't happen after all...

Quote:

Empire will begin loading upon release. There will not be a pre-load due to the staggered release dates throughout the world. We will be activating Empire throughout the world between Tues, March 3 17:00 GMT and Weds March 4 9:00 GMT.
