for those of you who thought the touch screen was just a gimmick:

OMG I can't wait! To this day, I still play AOE2 on my computer. I hope they include the WiFi internet ability in this game - that would freaken rock.

Nope. From what it sounds it's a direct port fully real time. The DS's sprite processors should be able to handle it. The stuff I'm seeing form Wario Ware Touched and Yoshi Touch & Go is pretty 2d intense. I'm sure it can handle AOE2. Remember AOE2 ran on a PII computer. I'm sure it can run on a DS. This game will be a good example of the DS's potential.
