(PC Gamer)   While Age of Empires IV got hyped this weekend, its creators hinted Age of Mythology may be returning as well. Anyone up for Celtic, Slavic, Aztec, Maya or Sumerian mythology and armies? Subby would like to see Hindu rakshasas on the battlefield   (pcgamer.com) divider line

I'm surprised more games haven't started copying CoD/sports games and release a reskin every year. Some strategy games can get away with milking endless DLC (April 15th cannot get here soon enough), but I think everyone has a certain game they would revisit over and over.

Wow, Mayans are a myth that never existed? Guess we need to tell the entire south/central amercian world that they have been duped by fake artifacts and hoax sites for the last 600 years

You can understand how they got away with it though.  They were duping Spaniards.

If you want Rakshasas check out Dominions. The graphics are simple but the gameplay and lore are very well done and the units cover every mythology from Aztec to Hindu to Asian to Lovecraftian horrors.

Only if they put more effort into it than they did that Chinese mythology expansion.  That thing was just plain bad.

I mean, they're good Mechs and all, but suffer in reputation: Rakshasa - BattleTechWiki (sarna.net)

Or people could realize that Age of Mythologies isn't about the people being myths, but the game is about playing the characters they believed in. The Mayans weren't a myth, but their gods and mythical creatures certainly are.

I'm cautiously optimistic about AoE4 since Relic is developing it.  After the wet fart that was Evil Genius 2 I'm hoping not to be disappointed twice in a year by old games getting sequels years after the fact.

Age of Mythologies taught me that heroes glow in the dark.

Came here to recommend the same game. If you enjoy watching a battle and cursing at your mages as they make themselves lucky instead of dropping rocks on your foes the game could be for you.

[*sigh*] Captalism 2

That game was a dreamboat.

Capitalism Labs is okay...I guess... Maybe if they bring back Multiplayer then I will look at it more fondly.

No good:  I've known too many Spaniards.

That's my favorite episode of "Kolchak, The Night Stalker".
