    Well, look what we have here. It seems Christmas has come a little early. For a limited time, you can pick up one of the most celebrated strategy titles for only 10 cents. If you are an RTS fan, you are going to want to get this game. There is no way you can go wrong for just ten cents.

    The only downside? It needs to be purchased through Games for Windows Live, which some people despise. If you can look past that fact, however, you are going to get a fantastic deal.[/p]

    Age of Empires III: Complete Collection
    Game Info
    For the math-heads out there, it comes out to a 99.75% discount. It's too good of a deal to pass up. The only hiccup for me was the buying process. Had to sign in 3 different places and fill out my info several times before I realized it was making me download their own version of Steam just to download it. But even so, the reviews for this game were pretty good, and it's hard to whine when it's 10 cents.

    Probably gonna buy it, hoping it'll be at least as good as AoE1 (AoE2 was AWESOME).

    AoE 2 is one of the best PC games ever, I still play it regularly, even since all that time....

    The original thread has US and UK posters saying it worked for them fine, but a Swedish poster was told it was available in his area. It seems like there are restrictions, but I can't find any info proclaiming what they are.

    I grabbed it, even though I won't be able to play it 'til Christmas. But hey, it's a good game for a really tiny price so it's not like I could pass it up. [​IMG]

    Can't use my card so Games for Windows is fail.
    At least Steam has different sites and options for paying.

    As far as buying online goes I think (don't quote me on it) but if you have a LIVE ID I think if you log in you can buy the game for 10 Microsoft Points too.

    Too bad I already had AoE 3 series before this deal. Still, for those who never had it, it is a good deal. Don't pass it.

    And I agreed that AoE 2 series is the best.
