@Gelugon_baat - Total Annihilation: Kingdoms was done by Cavedog after Chris Taylor left them. Chris Taylor did the original TA but, did not have anything to do with Kingdoms. So, we haven't seen how he will do a product like this since he was not part of the TA:K project. I didn't like how they dumbed down the resource system. Which Taylor has gone on to do with Supreme Commander 2 so, perhaps he may make the same mistake Cavedog did.
I actually enjoyed CaveDog's Total Annihilation Kingdoms quite a bit. I also enjoyed playihng Taylor's Dungeon Siege games. I am looking forward to the release of this new title.
I can't wait, and yes 57dean, it will be a sort of Medieval supcom. GPG has a Video Blog that they show every friday at http://gaspowered.com/kingsandcastles/
