Post Age Of Empires II HD Advancing To The Steam Age



The Age of Empires series has seen better days. Days like the year 1999, for instance. That's when Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings charged onto the itsy-bitsy adowwwwable killing fields, and oh what a grand thing it was. It even looked quite nice for the time, eschewing 3D razzle-dazzle in favor of goode ye-olde-fashioned sprites. Times, however, have changed, and monitors have grown wide and voracious in their appetites for tender, succulent resolutions. Thus, Microsoft's deemed it high-time for a re-release, on that newfangled, installation-frisbee-free Steam contraption that'll probably never catch on, no less. Graphics, however, aren't the only thing getting a modern makeover here.
