    It really isn't great. It's an English game, their name was the English one. They don't call Germany "Deutschland". Instead of the recognizable iroquois we now play as the Hfwaipbhfwiupefhbipwe. I wonder how hard it would be to mod the old name back.

    So how relevant is this protracted analysis video now since Definitive Edition has been released?

    Yes, but will the United States civilization feature settlers and soldiers that will switch into a shameful bowing animation as soon as they are close to native civ units?

    Aha, so they have time to do civilisations and 50 challenges for AoE3, but they don't have the time to fix AoE1 (although it is better with the latest patch).

    Bonus question: does anyone actually like and play AoE3?

  11. I do, it's a good RTS, underrated, rushed and over-critized but despite that it's a good game nonetheless.

    I played a lot of AoE3 during my high school years. I loved the Dutch, since being able to get coins without using villagers seemed completely overpowered to me. I also remember a lot of random lobbies with the unofficial "no rush" rule where it was practically guaranteed one of the two players would choose Russians and immediately rush the other.
