Gaming nostalgia, Age of Empires II HD Edition

March 22, 2013

Spotted advertisements that Microsoft will release the original Age of Empires II game by Ensemble Studios, re-imaged in high definition by Hidden Path Entertainment on April 9, 2013.

Dubbed this as ‘gaming nostalgia’ because Age of Empires II brings back lots of fond memories of playing it for countless hours so many years ago now.


Originally bought “Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings” and the “Age of Empires II: The Conquerors” expansion pack back in the year 2000. Played this terrific real time strategy game both online at the MSN Gaming Zone and offline versus the computer.

Regardless of its simplicity and flaws, really loved this RTS game that provided me with many hours of fun entertainment. Considering I do not use Steam, rather find it a shame that this HD edition is a Steam exclusive game. Though for old times sake, might just pop in my original Age of Empires II CD’s and indulge in some retro gaming.
