Hot off the re-release awesomery of Age of Empires HD, Age of Mythology Extended Edition is releasing in May. Like many gamers, I have the original and expansion and whereas it's a great game that still works for single player and LAN, online multiplayer has long since been shutdown and the games aspect ratio is 4x3. So hearing that Microsoft is going to polish up the old game, modernize it for bigger monitors and bring Steam online multiplayer, I am pretty excited.

"Use mythological creatures like Minotaurs and Cyclopes to bolster your armies' strength. Call upon the gods for assistance in flattening enemy towns with meteors or scatter opposing troops with lightning storms.

New in the Extended Edition: Steam Workshop, improved rendering engine, Twitch TV integration, enhanced observer mode, native support for Win 7/8 and HD monitors, and more!

I know. Now that Age of Mythology, Age of Empires and UT 2004 are on Steam I think the only game we play on LAN that isn't available is Rise of Nations.

I really liked the AoE HD release, looking forward to this one. I have never played Age of Mythology at all but I'm psyched that Microsoft is releasing its older catalog for Steam.

Now that the news of Gamespy shutting down and Games for Windows Live on its way out, maybe they'll re-release Halo 1 and 2 with some HD treatment.

I certainly hope so. Halo is a classic and should live on in PC form for quite some time.
