COG:EE absolutely cannot come out in the waning days of 2008. The good news, though, is that we do have those ship graphics, and it won't be too long before I can start showing them to you.


There is not much info yet given the imminent release of CoG EE.

I may consider to pick it up as I don't own any napoleonic era game so far, but would like to gain more insight into economy, building options, logistics, diplomacy and how this title compare to FoF. The two beta AAR's are not meaningful regarding this points and after all I'm primarily interested in the strategy aspect.


As soon as a release date is known, we'll start to focus more on this sort of thing. Also, we'll have a series of video tutorials covering every aspect of the game, adding up to roughly 25-30 minutes, as well as two promotional videos. That should all give you an excellent idea of what the game is like.

Actually, Elemental's not coming out until 2010, unless of course you preordered, in which case you get to be part of the beta next year.

From Elementals website;


It's using a combination of SecuROM and Starforce so that the game will require a CD in the drive, a USB key to be inserted and the reading of a particular word on a particular page of the user manual (which won't be hard since it'll only have a 2 page manual naturally).

The docs, which we expect to be written by fans, will be online only which will be fine since the game will require players to be on-line at all times due to the by-the-hour activation checks the game makes to the single player mode.

Also, the game won't work if you have any CD-ROM burning software including the built in media player software (users will naturally need to uninstall any media players including iTunes in order to play). WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!

All of this will be integrated into the game by our eastern-european CD manufacturer (the copy we send there will be completely clean of course) so we're confident that no pirates will get it...

What ever HPS Sims churns out next, I'll first in line. 

I just hope they change their price rate and/or continue the Ancient Warfare series in '09.

I've got SaS preordered.

Prolly look at BftB, but I am hardly good at CotA, so I should focus there first I would think.

I'm with Hertson, I would take Crown of Glory: EE is there was a good upgrade or the price was right.

I'm intrigued with WiF and the 2 by 3 East Front game (would like to see more info on that).

Mostly, I am with Marc and JD, I need to focus on what I HAVE rather than be distracted by every... HEY, DID SOMETHING SHINY JUST GO BY!

I see you are familiar with the Matrix way of releasing : let the players wait for the release and on release-date give the message "backordered" and let us wait for another month or so at least. It has been so for the last 4 games they released, is this a kind of odd selling method ?? And what's the news on WIP:AE ? should have been released by now but no news anymore , not even a new postponed release-date

Actually, we've done well overall this year with the vast majority of our releases having physical copies ship out on the release date. We did hit some problems with the last few releases due to shipping problems on a batch of manuals to the UK warehouse combined with unusually high demand on some titles, but these did not affect the US warehouse and shouldn't reoccur for future releases.

Eastern, you are wrong about WITP-AE.

There is much news in the WITP forum, the project is ongoing. Also, there has never been an actual release date for WITP-AE. Many guess at it, but nothing official has ever been released.

NOTE: I do not believe it should be released until it is ready.

A good sci-fi choice is Galactic Assault: Prisoner of Power from the folks who did Massive Assault. It pretty much sank without trace on launch, and both publishers and developers seem to prefer to pretend it doesn't exist but it is, in fact, an excellent game. If you can find it on e-bay or somewhere it would probably only cost a dollar or two.
