Cool the Phoenix.... I dont know if ES has changed it since the MS Cup in Redmond but as far as I remember the animation of the Phoenix was by far the most beautiful of all of them. Something I noticed is that by watching these screenshots and those very low resolution movies you dont really notice how good the graphics of AoM are.... only after seeing it live like 10cm away from my eyes I could see how good the animation of the units and the environment are.

I love the Gullinibursti art, and the pheonixes.
Somethings weird though, the PRIESTS are ATTACKING!!! With their STAFFS!!! Crazy, but cool.

The norse has something coming for them. All those sweet elephants, with the riders and weapons on them. Those new pheonixes, i hope they can attack, and the new camel art. Thers only 1 word to describe the SS, SWEET.

I hope they change the art on the pheonix, I hope they make it more transparent and have more red fire. The elephants are absolutely beautiful. I like the riders on them.

The gullinbersti is to square and i hope they cahnge the art on him to make him look more fiery . Even though we dont know the Norse statues purpose it still looks sweet.

I really love the this new screen shot and one of my favs over all, I really like those elephants.

It does look like a fortress... and I have the feeling that the other building that we used to think it was a fortress, is actually a temple.

Looks like a great screen shot. I love the phoenix art...I agree, the boar looks kinda of boxy but its hard to tell from that side. I am sure things will look better right before release.

That temple art is older. It's changed since. I just haven't updated it on the buildings. The big building in this week's screen isn't a temple either. So yeah, I'd think it's a fortress.

I think the statue building is a Norse temple.
The pheonix might be transparent because the elephant is underneath it.
The elephants are neat.

You're right, real life wars don't have winners.

But when all the soldiers are made of pixels, it's a different situation .

As the game is in constant development the artwork isn't at it's best. Leading up to E3 Ensemble optimized all their artwork and whatnot. I expect they'll do a similar thing before the game it realeased.

I doubt it, because from some fairly certain inferences, we've noticed that town centers and temples have a statue on them indicating the god the player has taken. And a player can't pick all three major gods. They're just eye candy, that's all.

War kills people. Innocent people. It's not a very nice thing. Therefore, there are no winners in war.

No war in real life has been won, because "You are victorious" didnt come up on the sceen. They just said they had won, granted, maybe the enemy was dead or slaves, but if the victory message didnt come up, then they are lying.

Gullibursti needs a bit of work.

Looks fast though, maybe ES are trying to say Gulli charges around alot.

(people still died though..)

anyways, steering back towards the TOPIC, what if the pheonix would burn in the same color or tint of its player color?

green tinted flames huh?

or what about blue ones?

i think it would be pretty cool, anyone else?

Of course, I did say this about real wars.

And now my friend listen:
Also in the counted wars there were no winners, not a single one!
No normal people died? -Fine, but they had to live in fear.In fear of loosing family and friends, in fear of loosing there sons which were soldiers.And after the war they had to live under another government.Other laws.
Only soldiers died? -"Only"???? If you don't know, soldiers are also humans.Also almost always humans who wanna live in peace.Which are sad 'cause they "have to" kill, have to leave their families and friends 'cause of the war.They saw the other soldiers dying."Only".They were afraid to die every minute.Lost there lives and friends."Only".
Every single person, if at home, or in the war as soldier, not important for or in which country had to live in unbelievable fear."Only".And they were winners....really?
