Any recommendations for me? I love Battle Academy but I don't like so much Unity of Command or Panzer Corps... Played some of the original Close Combats but couldn't get to like them either.

Do you prefer tactical or strategic games and real time or turn based?

I have played Commander - Europe at war. It is quite entertaining. So I could recommend that.

Unfortunately the latest "Commander - The Great War" is not included in the sale. Will it be yet?

No it only just released! :)

The normal rule is that a game doesn't go on sale in the year it was released. Our hardcore fans are the early adopters and we don't want to punish them for picking up the game as soon as its available as they are our life blood. Instead we make it at least a year till the game goes on sale and then the discounts are around the 30-35% level. The is is very different from the standard model used by others where they discount very early and extremely steeply. It's one of the things that makes us different from the rest and why we have such a dedicated fan base.

Thank you very much for the response. I fully understand that.

So I have to rob the piggy bank within the next few weeks... :mrgreen:

Tactical mostly, strategic also but wargames ara a bit out of reach. Turn based also much preferable... I loved games like incubation, xcom, silent storm, also Civ series... as I said Battle Academy was perfect for me, not sure it can get better than that. Well except for the second part ;)

Last year Panzer Corps was on sale even though it had not been out a year. I was hoping the Afrika Korps expansion would be included with the holiday sale this year, but I still can't complain, $20.00 for the download is very reasonably priced considering all the effort put into it.

If you like turn based strategy maybe Commander Europe at War.

Does this sale apply to the Battle Academy expansions on the Ipad?

Nice promo, large selection! But I am a tad disappointed to see that the Panzer Corps DLC-s are not included.

Will Sliterine ever be selling the 'Distant Worlds' series of games on behalf of Matrix or do I have to go an buy them directly from Matrix Games (incuring VAT when they arrive by the way!)

Hmmm Ian, don't worry about all those odd looking 72nd scale models from Armour Pro carrying nasty comments on signs :)

You have only annoyed my other hobby that thinks it already has a claim on my spare cash hehe.

Been thinking of trying out Unity of Command, sales sure help the decision process :)

Might also drop some cash on Decisive Campaigns.

So much for trying to stem the flow of my purchasing wargames :(

Only title I have failed to get an urge for, is Panthers in the Fog. I have all the previous, but unless I am playing a human, it lacks some sparkle for me personally. I sold off my Columbia Games "Front series" board games for much the same reason. A game that can't be played solo reasonably rarely competes easily with titles that can (in my view).

Newsflash - Unity of Command is now $9.99!

This is not a game we exclusively publish and it is to make sure we're not being undercut by other sites. You can't get it cheaper anywhere else! We think it's crazy but there you go! Don't miss out!

You're right this is quite crazy but maybe it opens up the game to more undecided people like me. I played the Demo and was already considering buying it for $19.99 but now with this price you simply cannot go wrong. :)

We're planning to add Distant Worlds next year when we get a chance.... but you wont pay any import duty if you buy from Matrix. We both ship to Europe from our warehouse in Germany.

Holy cow! How long will the $9.99 pricetag for Unity of Command stay on? Until 14 January as for the rest of the games?

No, Unity of Command will revert to its sale price any day now - just waiting to hear when the other sale has ended...

Is the Mac version of Napoleon Commander available? I had previously purchased it from Freeverse but have had a computer crash since then and cannot locate the game online (except for here?) - except for the demo....
