I also can't wait for this game. Surprisingly because it is single player and that's just not my style.

I used to watch my friends older brother play this around the time Orcs and Humans was newish.

I watched that whole video yesterday. I am so excited this is going to be so much fun. I haven't had any good turn based fun since Military Madness remake on PS3!!! and that doesn't even compare to this.

I've considered buyin the original from steam when those dudes said it was for sale. To be honest I never even played the first one. I am a little too young. I was born in 84. I used to watch my friends older brother play back then. It was around the time I started my PC gaming career. Although I played other games that my friend and I watched his bro play X COM was one I think I just didn't grasp the concept of. I was only 10 but I was dabbling with Dune 2, C&C and Orcs and Humans. :)

Not gonna lie , you should seriously consider it, because it will help you immensely understand the backdrop of where this version of the game comes from.

I still play it, so that should say something :)
