Age of Empires III:

Thinking of re-installing this game and its expansions. Never really quite understood why it was hated so much by the fandom, maybe it's because I never had a raging nostalgia hard-on for Age of Kings to color my view.
A fistful of me.

It was quite a bit different from the earlier games, IIRC.

Personally, I like the card system, although the levelling up can be abused to Hell and back. Just have to keep someone alive and let your experience rack up. Especially if you add to it with the supply vehicles.

When the hammer falls and your world shatters, I'll be there to cut the handle and pick up your pieces.

I like cheese.
[up][up] There are experience limits per game last I checked, though.
If I could draw well, this avatar would instead be a Pikachu eating cheese.
Yep, there's an experience cap. 25k or something; I forget. It makes it appropriately hard to get to level 40 and 50, which is nice.

I am serious. This is my serious face.
I remember loving this game. It was especially fun to play as the Russians and just throw hundreds of strelets at my enemy's base. evil grin

Praise the Sun!
Bah! Strelets nothing! I focused on building my Oprichnik Loot N' Burn squad, who would proceed to sever the enemy supplies by murdering their villagers and burning down their farms and Barracks while their army were away/still being formed. A few dozen worker corpses and supply building ashes later, and the enemy was in my grasp as the rest of the army came in. Fun, fun times....

I liked playing as the Dutch. Halberdiers with Skirmishers are hard to beat.
Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

Tercio and Musketeers for me, y'all. And walls backed up by a fort and mortars, booyah!

[up]I agree that the Dutch are fun to play as. When I build all the banks I can, and there's a whale in the sea nearby, I like to imitate Gonzo and say "We're gonna be rich!"

I really loved whenever I played as Germany. But damn, those cards give you too many Uhlans which results in serious beatdown whenever their spearmen come. sad

I shot them before that happened. :)

I originally like the Spanish, but after the Asian Dynasty's came out, Japan became my preferred choice. So much fun to be had with them.

You can't kill a stone....
I'm a big fan of resource trickle, so the Dutch and Japanese are both high on my list.

Can anyone offer help installing Age of Empires III on linux (fedora 18)?

It's a drop kick!!
I love the Aztecs. Nothing but infantry as far as the eye could see, and no trace of gunpowder at all. It felt like playing WarCraft versus StarCraft.
Still finishing: a whole lot of shows from Fall 2013 and Winter 2014.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
