Microsoft was selling Age of Empires 3 on the Games For Windows Marketplace yesterday for ten cents. At that price there is pretty much zero excuse to not pick it up, and so I did and decided that I might as well play through the campaign.
I haven’t played an Age of Empires game since the first one, which I was terrible at (not a surprise since I am really bad at all RTS games). I did, however, really enjoy Age of Mythology and it’s the only non Warcraft 3 RTS that I’ve played to completion.
I’ll see how it goes, but given my RTS history I’m unlikely to actually play through the whole game. If nothing else I promise to take funny pictures of my face when I get really frustrated.
