I think a lot of kittens are going to have their nine lives used up on these threads before this baby is Gold....

I heard Matrix is installing new software next week that automatically locks all threads that uses the letters "AE" and "yet" in the same post or any 2 posts in the same thread by the same person.

I sent my wife a stripper for our 7th anniversary (yes a male stripper) to her office. That was 27 years ago and she still gets kidded about it (yes she still works there). And that cost me $75 back then, so as far as a stripper being cheaper than the game, well...

Speaking of hundreds of hours of gameplay, I hear that the War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition is coming along nicely as well. I have no real inside information on this one other than to say that I've heard rumblings that it will likely be completed by this summer.

You forgot to underline the part where it says he's "heard rumblings". Those rumblings were stomach gas.

Indy,

We won't make your birthday, sorry, but we are making excellent progress. I think the rumblings Joel heard are quite accurate.

Regards,

- Erik

Orgins Release.......

Unfortunately that will throw a monkey wrench into what I was planning on playing at Origins.  But I can deal with that.

Well you knew you had no chance at what you were fishing for. So why not a wish list of useful accessories that will make your hours trying to get the new system down pat?

Nice comfortable oversized Italian leather chair with wide arm rests. Convenient for comfortable use of a mouse or to rest a snack on the arm opposite that you rest the mouse on.

How about a nice electric heating pad designed for your neck and shoulders to smooth away those pesky kinks that seem to always pop up around the seventh hour of continuous play.

Of course a nice bar fridge that fits right beside your chair is a real must. Imagine the amount of time you will save not having to run to the fridge each time you get peckish. Efficiency plus!

AE would be ideal. However one must never lose track of the necessary little extras that can upgrade your gaming experience.

Happy Birthday!

Reminds me of the story Ronald Reagan told about being an optimist. You know the one, it ended "Man, there's gotta be a pony in here somewhere!"


Erik,

A few weeks ago you talked about making a Q1 2009 release. Based on what you just wrote about Joel's remarks, would you please comment more explicitly? For example, is Q1 2009 definitely out? Whatever you can tell us will be helpful and appreciated.

Regards,
George
