I’ve been playing AoE games since they were first introduced (because I’m old). With every release, I was pleased that the game had changed. It looked better, had nice new features and some features that were more challenging. I haven’t played AoE IV. I have watched the demos from several weeks ago and I’ve looked at a lot of screen shots. I haven’t seen a single thing that made me concerned about what I’m seeing. “Change the units!”, “Colors look bad”, “Change the campaigns”, and many other complaints are astounding to me. I want the game to be great and I want to know that they are building it for someone that is a fan. If I get into the Beta (fingers crossed), I may give them feedback about something that doesn’t feel or look right. But since most of you haven’t touched the game, I am wondering why the community is so negative?? We all get to have opinions. I’m just saying, try being thankful that we’re getting a new game in this series. It might be the best, might be the worst, might be somewhere in between. But being all bent out of shape about something you saw in a pre-release video is probably a place from which you should consider redirecting your energies.
All that having been said, hope every one of you has a great Friday and weekend.
