I've been waiting to try this out!

I have also joined the 'Athens' Server as well.
Live ID (PC): Smokin Warclaw
City Name: DESTRUCTION

I'm EXTREMELY new to the game though.
Is there a way to form Groups/Guilds or such?

there are no guilds but u can form groups with your LIVE friends and do co-op missions or 2v2 pvp. You can also visit your friends city and do quests there to help bot yourself and your friend :)

I used to love AoE back in the day, so I thought I would test this out. After installed the LIVE client on my computer, I got the error message saying I needed the hotfix from the xbox.com site. Ok, so I download it and - it doesn't even work. I just get a message saying "The updatebr.inf file is invalid". Good thing the hotfix is broken. :)

EDIT: I did some more research and found out that games within Windows Marketplace do not support XP64 (my OS). They completely refuse to even provide installers for it. Yay Microsoft.

I really enjoyed this game at first, until the *massive* glitches started rearing their heads. So, it's an online game - which means there is no "save game" option. About 45 mins into one of the maps, my Mumble glitched out and I alt-tabbed to fix it. BOOM. The Age of Empires game crashed, and when I started it again I had to start the entire level over (45 mins wasted). I also kept getting a lot of server lag while playing the game.

I think I'll give them a month or so to get their crap together before I play any more on this one. ;)

At sunrise we will dance the jempin jig
So raise up your pint of Rum and take another swig
The curse of Captain Morgan has led us to this fate
So have no fear, dont look back
The afterlife awaits!

Played this game for a little bit myself as an avid AoE fan. Personally, the game is very disappointing in most regards.

How is the server? Is it like MMOs where there servers with different populations?

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave

safely in a well preserved body, but rather to

skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting

"HOLY SHI* .... WHAT A RIDE !"

Theres free transfers which is cool, and its more like AoE with matches just being quests. Its kinda like the old campaigns from AoE1 and 2, certain buildings locked till certain missions.
