If you were hoping that I’m talking about a touch-enabled strategy game, I’m sorry to disappoint you. I’m talking about a revamped version of the highly popular Age of Mythology game that will get released for Windows Vista, 7 and Windows 8 users. Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about past hits and is thus making happy die-hard fans of the legendary game. It’s quite a pity that Redmond can’t have the same logic when it comes to Windows XP and a potential Second Edition.
