Stop the presses! Tonight began as any other when, out of seemingly thin air, an amazing event occurred. This is the type of occasion that you skip weddings, lunar eclipses, graduations, and the rodeo for. Microsoft is giving away an absolutely amazing deal.
If you head over RIGHT NOW Microsoft is giving away Age Of Empires III for 10 cents. This is a great sequel to a set of games that really put RTS gaming into its own realm. It is not at all uncommon to see hardcore gamers still playing the original Age of Empires games for the perfect mix of nostalgia and quality.
Gamespy had this to say back in 2005 when the game came out, “it may not redefine real-time strategy gaming, but it sets the bar so high that we will be comparing games to this for years.”
So followers, friends, lovers, ladies and gentlemen of young and old head over to Microsoft ASAP before this rare occasion of Microsoft goodwill fades back to gray.
P.S. You have to use the Windows Marketplace Client to get the amazing deal.
P.P.S. Since it is through Microsoft you can use your spare Microsoft points to buy this game if you have them!
