Dear Matrix Staff,

As a loyal customer for over fifty years, I think it only fair you provide me with a definitive list of releases and dates (which you'll obviously rigidly stick to) for the new games of 2009. I have money (my wifes') to spend and am in the mood for something shiny and new on my PC. The list will enable me to drool over what's to come (the only excitement I get these days) and most importantly, plan my operation for clearing funding through Mrs Jim's cobweb-filled, padlocked and alarmed purse. If I am in receipt of the list now, perhaps I can preclude her responding to my request with her usual "You want ANOTHER game?! You bought one only six months ago!".

You've never let me down before and as such I'm a bit miffed that you haven't sent the list already. So, please stop drinking coffee and eating donuts and get typing forthwith.

I sincerely look forward to the PM containing the list, which will arrive shall we say, by tomorrow afternoon? Marvellous.

TTFN,
Jim

I'd second a list of releases for 2009....you MUST have some firm releases...not release dates, but you must know what's coming out in 2009??

Look back at 2008 and how many surprise deals were made. Announce the deal one week and release it the next.
Things happen fast these days.

The next release should be Crown of Glory: Emperor's Edition, which is getting quite close to gold status.

It's looking outstanding from where I'm sitting, have a peek here:

Thank you Erik. It looks like a game worth buying if the screenshots are anything to go by.

If Battles from the Bulge isn't released this year it will be because the world has finally come to an end and in that case the release becomes moot anyway

1. I fully expected CoG:EE to be next - they let Gil R. out of his cage to do some pre-release buzz here and there.

2. Have you seen the weather Eddy (huge snows in the US, frozen lands, tempests here in the south of France - after the six inches of Mediterranean snow). They better hurry on BftB!

3. John Locke is ageless and can jump through time. He had his laptop with Matrix games on it and went back 50 years. That is what is happening with the 50 year thing.

It seems that it maybe awhile before alot of them are released.  I just spent 600.00 bucks on board games so I am broke anyway.  It'll give me time to save some money up.

While we are waiting for the new releases perhaps we could broaden our interests with a little gaming-that is, I will game (run the “house”, and you guy’s gamble.

I will give 30 to one odds that COG EE will be released before Combined Arms (CA).
I will give 29 to one that BFTB will be released before C.A.
I will give 10 to one that BftB will be released before BTR-BoB

These plain bets can be easily added to with a simple request.

If you want to really make it interesting; months can be added to the winning (first) game such as:
CoG EE will be released 30 months prior to C. A. (19 to 1)

What is your pleasure? (Yuan only-100 Yuan minimum bet)
Satisfaction guaranteed!

Notice
All bets will be held by 06 Maestro until such time that that the terms of the bet have been settled. All funds in the gaming bank will be used for beer or investments by 06 Maestro as is deemed necessary. The house will make full payments to any and all winners within a reasonable time. The Gamers Gaming House is not a bank and thus is not eligible for Federal Bailout Funds. All bets will be paid in full-circumstances allowing. All bets are finale


Edit: Matrix Games web site should have additional (smaller) font choices.

It was 12 wargames. Some out of print-such as Gamers "Omaha". Release in 1991. I paid 275 for it plus. Ive been hunting for this one.

I should look into that-I was under the impression that A.E. was a figment of someones imagination-never expected it to become a reality. Maybe its for real and deserves some odds-my bad (first time I ever said that-times are a changin)

Hmm WiF might make it in 18 months -possibly less. So; 6 months or less 30 to 1, 1 year or less 20 to 18 months or less 2 to one.

About AE-I don't know- ah, I'll live on the edge here; 10 to 1 if it is released within six months. I am a little leery about going further out on that.

WiF makes steady progress. The major issue is that buyers expectations were soured by the long-running CWiF saga (Computer WiF prior to Matrix becoming involved) and so even BEFORE the Matrix version was started people were complaining that it was overdue. Go read the monthly developers reports - one is due out tomorrow - and you'll understand that it will be out sometime within your lifetime :)

I jest... but don't give up on WiF.
