    Age of Empires: Definitive Edition launches 20th Feb

    Delayed last year, missing its 20th anniversary. Devs wanted it "exactly right".

    Windows Store only, if I was properly informed. Ugh. Hope they don't do the same for AoE 4, though I might brave it for that one. Still artificially locks out a lot of potential players for no reason.

    If it's only available through the Windows store I won't be buying it. I can somehow tolerate Steam games, but damn, do I miss the days you could find games in real stores with the actual physical media. There it seems PC gaming has died long ago.

    I loved this game and will probably try this out. Steam, blizzard, ms store...same thing to me. I agree that this 'digital store' trend is taking away from the experience of going out to the store and lining up for the newest games. But hey, now you can spend money on games even faster.

    not the same

    steam,origin etc is not embedded in your os, where as if you sign in to windows store windows suddenly assigns a "buyer" tag to your os and it will get flustered with gaming ads in menus, telemetry recording and sending away your every move and windows in general thinking i somehow want to sign in using an online email and password instead of local user logon

    yes, you can disabled that,later on... but that's only there as an afterthought. i used that store once, and never again will i make a mistake of giving my details to windows os
