Before you lot go ahead and yell at this statement which is 100& BS just remember that some people aren't as knowledgeable as you all are.

Recently we had a quiz in Biology as it was the end of term. I decided that I would ask my entire class who was the developer of AoE... not one person answered ensemble studios every single one said microsoft. I personally am no a great fan of the game however I do believe that ES should be recognised for their achievements and that microsoft should not hog he limelight...

Comments?

"So what?"

Besides... MS bought out ES... so technically they're one and the same now.

Yes but even when MS buys a developer, it's still the developer who develops it.

ES still makes the game and MS still publish it.

It's like Nintendo and Intelligent Systems. Nintendo own the company so they can say they developed the game but Intelligent Systems still get credit and part of the profit and are allowed to use Nintendo's copyrights.

Most of the people who make AoM are still ES guys, not MS guys.

The PSX/PS2 controller is better than ANY gamepads/controllers available for PCs and consoles. It's much more engaging to play a game on a 29"/32" screen sitting in your TV-chair than hammering on a keyboard in front of a 17" screen. The PC's only advantages as a gaming system are the online-capabilities for multiplaying and the harddisk (I KNOW that the X-box has a harddisk with a mere 8 gigs).

And on the top of the mountain, they saw Helge, the most of them all.
