     Just a heads up for people interested in maybe picking up a second copy or trying to get a friend into the game!

    I would never be such a jerk as to get my friend into this game.

     

    start patching, or stop selling

    It has TWC and TAD, yes, though on Steam it is not a physical copy. Though, you can purchase a gift code on Steam and then gift it to your friend's Steam account.

    i bought it and stored it for later. heres what i'm going to do. i'm going to have my friend come see if he likes it. but if he doesn't i guess i'll just put it on my computer and have another account. can i download it from steam if i already have it installed on my pc?

    i guess if all else fails i could uninstall the one i have now then download it. then just access both accounts since i don't care about my offlline stuff. btw musk what did Ryz0n say about you writing a tutorial for getting American civ? He really doesn't seem to care imo.

    You can download it on Steam if you currently have it.  You'll need to re-install if you wish to use the Steam provided CD key.  While the steam CD key will work on some retail complete collections, I would suggest reinstalling via steam to make sure you're using the right version.  Following Metis's instructions here: http://forum.agecommunity.com/forums/thread/960099.aspx

     Should help to make sure that the steam install functions properly, but if you run into error creating a new account (if that's what you're doing), shoot me an email at age3support@microsoft.com and let me know the situation.

    This is a great opportunity for new players to get into the game for a nominal cost. I hope the sale is advertised well.

    I am honored to say, when given the option to have AOE3 back on sale for 8 hours, steam players worldwide voted for Age of Empires III!  It's back up on the community choice for another 4 hours at 75% off (and back in the top 3 overall!)  

     

    I never expected there to be so much support still for the game, and am both flattered and humbled to see so many gamers excited about picking up the game again.

    I don't believe those numbers will be published / publicly viable at any point in time.  But I can tell you (as you can no doubt decipher from the current 'top games' list), that it has been doing very well.
