Age of Booty to be removed from Steam store

Hello, all. As we previously announced over on Capcom Unity, unfortunately there are no plans to update or migrate Age of Booty to a new matchmaking system following the shutdown of the Gamespy service. For those who already own the game, as has been the case, the single player campaign will still be accessible since that portion is unaffected by the shutdown. However, after some consideration, we have determined that since any new users will not be getting the full game experience, we have decided to remove Age of Booty for purchase from Steam in 30 days.

Create custom maps using the intuitive map creation system.

Age of Booty is a RTS game.

I love this game... why... the soundtracks are amazing.... :D
It's a simpel RTS game because of the way it plays.
Just click and conquer many islands.

It's a very fun and addictive video game with a few options to play.
play with or agains the PC and give youself a challange.
Only downside is de securom security activation as the key you need to enter first time use.
I hate this because we have steam :)

Great game ... if on sale.. you need to try.
Score - 8/10.

===!DO NOT BUY!===

This game requires a Gamespy account to play! Gamespy no longer exists!

This needs to be removed from Steam immediately as it is literally unplayable.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IT DOES NOT WORK.
STEAM SUPPORT WILL NOT HELP YOU
(supposedly because it's a securom issue which is "third party")

The game has Securom DRM with limited activations, which is bad enough.
But the key steam gives you isn't even valid, so you can't ever play the game.
Steam Support directs you to a dusty web forum for support.

End result: You got screwed out of your money, and despite multiple people
reporting the same issue to steam support they still sell the game on steam.

Do not purchase. Hopefully you are reading this prior to buying the game and not after like I did. If you purchase this you wont be able to play it anyway. so even at $0.99 it is a waste of money. Burn the dollar if you want to get actual entertainment value out of it becuase you will not be able to play this game as the CD keys are mostly broken and you will spend hours of your time trying to get a dollar game to work only to have it not.

As the users her have said steam does not give 2 Sh*ts about the issues with their games and will keep on happily taking your money for a game that doesn't work and they will do nothing about it it. Being that they are too big to fail and one of the only viable options out there, F*cking over a small percentage of the community doesn't really matter to them as it wont have any impact.

So do yourself a favor, no matter how fun the game looks, don't purchase it, be sure to read reviews before you buy things and game on!
