So are there FE LHdeals? Past 20$?


Strictly speaking there is no FE LH deal @$20, that just happens to be the price for the people who own FE already, and for some reason they can gift the LH version as well for that price. FE LH is $40, and any deals you see on that will be on the $40 price no doubt.

Is there something wrong with the game? I'm definitely interested in it (loved AoE 1, looking for the time to play AoE 3), but I'm waiting until a big sale for it.


It's not an HD remake at all. The only noticeable difference my friend and I found is that the grass and water is no longer red. They didn't fix the lag once you get over 200 units, making it just as unplayable as the original AoE2. A horrible and cheap marketing tactic. Be glad you didn't buy it.

I played for about an hour last night and... it didn't age as well as I would have liked. After playing Starcraft II (or even Starcraft I) there are just so many things that are frustrating about the experience. Things you take for granted like chaining orders, queuing research, etc.

It's less of a remake and more along the lines of something you would see released on GOG.

Hmm, that sounds exactly like an HD remake to me. But then again when I hear HD remake I know what is coming is the same game with slightly improved visuals which tends to be the case almost every time. Of course I am used to console HD remakes so who knows many PC ones are different.

Quite the opposite here. I need a steam sale so i buy games to play. I burned through the Spec Ops 2/Darkness 2 bundle and about 3/4 through Bioshock Infinite. But i do have that D&D GOG bundle to hold me over till some crazy sales happen i suppose. Going to dive into BG1 tonight.

lol, not this again.

HD remake just means better graphics!
No, HD remake means fixed gameplay!

Getting deja vu. :lol:

I wasn't saying what it means, but just based off of the history of HD remakes it seems that the trend is to simply enhance the visuals and support higher resolutions while not really changing anything else. Since that seems to be the trend I am just surprised when people expect a lot more from them.

The word remake it terrible for how it is being used because it can mean multiple things.

Just don't go assuming what I was trying to do now...

Nah, I know what you mean and I agree. I was just laughing because the same conversation about the same game happened a week or so ago, lol.

And according to the forums, MP is largely broken as most people can't finish a game and some can't even get a MP game going. So glad they spent all that time on achievements and the workshop . . . maybe they are expecting the community to create its own patches and distribute via the workshop ala any Bathesda title.

bit on gog promo. this is what I consider on the verge of a pretty good deal. usually they are overpriced on just about everything. It still could be better, but I like what gog is doing. Witcher 3 DRM free etc. You gotta also honor how they price their witcher games, extremely aggressive compared to other gouging publishers.

I got in on the GoG D&D deal before they added NWN2 to their catalog, so I was now able to buy it alone at 80% off. Easy decision for four bucks.

I noticed GamersGate has Might & Magic games on sale, including Clash of Heroes which activates on Steam. It's $2.49 which is cheaper than it's ever been (msrp used to be 14.99, now it's 9.99.) Even better if you have the 20% off discount.


Bah. Just got around to trying out the demo and decided I want it...just in time for the sale to be over. I don't suppose anyone's got an extra copy?

I only have shadow of chernobyl... Modding is a MUST. It really is an awesome game, you can put countless hours on it... Don't know about the others, but should be great too.

Can't remember why I stopped playing, maybe a hard drive change and then I forgot about it. Will get to it as soon as I finish Binary Domain and Back to the Future.
