53  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Warhammer Minis on: March 05, 2008, 05:52:45 PM
I was working on cleaning up my garage last night and came across some boxes of Warhammer minis. Lots of minis. I haven't played in almost a decade and I doubt I would start playing now. Is there anyone interested in buying/trading for them?

Off hand I saw:

Dark elves both painted and unpainted lots of of them more than enough to make an army
Brettonians both painted and unpainted enough to make an army with
Some empire both painted and unpainted
Some orcs and goblins
and more

Please send me a PM if you are interested and I can work up a more detailed list.

I'll add Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, Warhawk, and Heavenly Sword  to my list of titles to get.  It will have to wait a little while though, the PS3 going to empty my penny jar for a while.

Oh, by the way, the cool kids have PS3 pre-orders, apparently, so you are tragically uncool.  Don't worry, though.  So am I.

I broke down and bought a PS3 today, mainly so my wife and I can watch hi-def movies. Can I be one of the cool kids now? Please?

With the new baby in the house, I've been only able to play in short bursts. I have a DS, but lately nothing has been interesting to me. So I'm thinking of getting a PSP. So I would like to hear what games people would recommend. I like all kinds of different games the only thing I don't for are FPS.

So help a new dad get his gaming fix and tell me what are the best games out there for the PSP!

76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Nintendo holding back consoles? on: March 30, 2007, 10:04:19 PM

Quote from: deadzone on March 27, 2007, 08:54:21 PM


Honestly - what has Nintendo done that does not go against traditional thinking with the next generation of consoles?  Less focus on HD, entirely new controller scheme, wide-appeal to a nontraditional gaming audience, low price, etc...  Why would this not be true for their sales decisions as well?

I mean to be honest, based on how they have gone about things with this console in general, do you really think they are even worried about sales quarters and stuff?  If this were true, then why not compete directly with the big boys and include full HD support, higher specs, On-Line play, etc..?  Based on what I have seen they have chosen to innovate in every sense of the word.  I think that their sales reflect this and I think that they will continue to reflect this for a while UNTIL they can catch up with demand for their console.  Sales figures be damned, let's do something different and see what happens.   


When I first read your original response I had a very similar reaction as Gellar. I'm not speaking for Gellar, but let me give you my take on this.

Nintendo tried to go head to head with Sony and Microsoft with the cube and got killed. Sure they could have made another HD, standard controller, targeting the traditional gaming  audience, with a price slightly lower than the other two; and stay in last place. Instead of directly competeing they went where the other two were not. Low priced and innovative. This is what many good companies do. They differentiate their product to maximize total PROFIT and theirby stock value. Showing long periods of strong product sales is one way to maximize PROFIT and stock value. It's much better to show many good years one after another than to have one great year followed by weaker years after that. Another reason could be increased profitability, as the Wii becomes more mature it becomes cheaper to make. Why leave make only $50.00 dollars profit when you can make $75.00 or $100.00? There is the danger that demand may weaken but that isn't likely here. Other reasons to wait are tax considerations and Gellar is right stock price is huge and reacts strongly positive to strong sales over long periods (it's not a fad) and strongly negative to sales results that drop rapidly from one year to the next (fad).

Hopefully, this makes sense
