Cool I was able to hold a copy of Uncommon Valour in my hands this weekend while visiting family in Ottawa (which is where I am as I type).

Maybe the future is Matrix and Matrix is the future.

Either way, seeing it on a shelf at Compucenter was a positive indicator to me.

When Matrix has titles in a mainstream store in a major mall I am happy.

Some web sites are just fan driven and fan owned.
I want Matrix to be the home site of a major wargaming company in 5 years time personally.

I have been to many years unable to go to a decent store and casually buy real wargames.

Hehehe well being able to hold something doesn't mean I can always buy it, otherwise hugging catholic schoolgirls would be so much more fun hehe.

I had a strong urge to get the copy, and I still might not make it out of Ottawa without it for that matter. No other major competing interests other than the atypical debt load hehe (in my case a Canadian Tire Card, gota stop buying power tools somehow).

Yeah I agree with you:) Rideau Centre was closest to my place in Ottawa when I lived there so that is the main reason I went to that mall....they did have an EB store there so I did not need to go anywhere else.

In the Place dOrleans mall there is both an Electronics Boutique as well as a Compucenter.

I am fairly certain the Uncommon Valour was on sale in the Compucenter (one copy). Was a reasonable price too.

Nahh, we're just like the sewer rats - crawling around in gutters out of daylight, forming our own view of the world. Can't let reality interfere with that. ;) :D

My only problem with the Main Page, is it's like my home town newspaper (its an 8 page waste of paper), I can survive without it.

I have it bookmarked solely so I can find the downloads section easiest when telling people about Steel Panthers.

Rarely and I do mean rarely, I look at the games in development page just to remind myself I have not missed something.

Hei Mikko!

No need to order overseas, at least not if you live near Helsinki. Stockmann in the city center has a shelf full of wargames and yes including Uncommon Valor and other Matrix titles.

- don't know about the other Stockmann stores.
