For the new poll, tell us which one of the units only accessible through a cheat code is your favorite! The gun-toting baby on a tricycle, the lightning bolt up your behind priest, or perhaps one of Scott Winsett's favorite cars? Vote.

The result of the previous poll - Will you buy AoE: DE? - are in.

Winning vote: NoSteamNoBuy!!11 (34%, 47 Votes)

Of course. (20%, 28 Votes)
Taunt 2 (No). (17%, 24 Votes)
Pre-ordered! (11%, 16 Votes)
Maybe... (9%, 13 Votes)
Waiting for price drop (9%, 12 Votes)

Total votes that have been cast: 140

Heh! You guys need to blow of some steam by diving into a steaming hot bath whilst playing Steam's Age II HD using steamy tactics!


MS, you heard 'em...

Make it so!

M$ does NOT know what gamers want. The last 4 years have been an unbroken chain of misses by the high command of the company xD

I dont even like steam and hold the position "no steam no buy" because the game-all games-should be available on every major digital distribution platform, including GOG. Keeping it on the windows store\win10 for no reason other than to leverage it and other windows store exclusives to gain users is heavily anti consumer.

I don't like marketplace/console exclusive titles.

But if they work for other companies, e.g. Nintendo or Sony, I don't see why marketing fellas would advice against them.

But for some reason there are way too many antibodies against microsoft in the gaming (already a toxic one) community.

These are different markets. In consoles being locked down into a single platform/marketplace is the norm and everyone came to accept that. But for PC users a walled garden approach is heavily frowned upon, we are used to have an open platform so that's one of the main reasons people are resistant to Win 10/MS Store exclusivity.

I have not purchased anything from either Sony or Nintendo in 15 years. Got a ps2 and a stack of games from the early-2000s but after that I am having no purchasing activity in those markets and therefore myself and others like me have no particular say there. I think console exclusives for the PS4 and Switch are bad for the overall gaming space but there is little to do about it, as their own userbases have been subjugated fairly effectively at this point and can be relied upon for support, akin to a feudal lord levying his peasants and collecting taxes from them.

Here on the PC though, we have a bunch more cantankerous fellows like myself who wont go out and support anti-consumer releases, even if it is for a beloved franchise like AoE. I dont care, I wont buy it at release, and I'm guessing plenty of others feel something similar to a certain degree. I will pick it up later if at all, and for a harsh(sub 10$) discount. Although if the initial feedback was glowing and I was convinced it was as good or far superior on all fronts and also was available on steam, that would be a completely different story.

I would instantly buy AoE-DE if it was on Steam. I refuse to use the Windows Store on principle so I'm just waiting and waiting so far. Hopefully AoE4 isn't Windows Store exclusive.

By the way, the poll is missing the ICBM helepolis, which is definitely the most fun one.

Well, the poll is cheat units. The ICBM cheat just changes an already existig unit.

Well, doesn't cheats like Medusa, Flying Dutchman and Stealth Archer also change existing units? The only difference is that they get new names while ICBM was unfortunate to keep its name

There's that and also there's the fact that you can't place an ICBM Heleopolis in the editor. So there's your answer I guess.

What Fisk said. We could have a poll with favorite non-unit cheat codes next time?

I think its a joke about viagra, as that is a well known blue pill, and considering the other meaning of "wood", well...

Ah... thank you for the explanation. It was a good joke. I'm almost surprised the devs didn't put it in there considering we already have a "steroids" cheat.

During development, the cheat "Zeus" turned villies into goddamn sexual tyrannosauruses. It was considered to be "too detailed", but ES still wanted a villie buff cheat code - which eventually became "Steroids". The Zeus cheat is still present today in both AoE and AoK, but without it's function.
