This is going to be about:
- how I was in love with the idea of 2nd edition of Space Hulk
- how I was happy to hear the release date
- how I was upset and sad and cried
- how much I hate Games Workshop now

I hate you, I hate you, I hate you!

I love the idea of Space Hulk. What can be better that wandering through rusty, abandoned spaceship with your group of marines and killing all that dares to move?
So I wanted to buy the old edition, but then I found an information that they're doing new one and I decided to wait.
Because they know their job and it's going to be shiny and playable and maybe expensive but not that much so I can't afford it and I will be in love with the new game.


Right...?

So why do I hate you so much now, Games Workshop?

Because of the LIMITED edition, because of the horrible PRICE, because you've just ruined my day and made me CRY while I was making chocolate pancakes. I didn't even knew that was possible. Ever.

No. The price is not right. Almost 60 pounds? No, really. Where from I'm supposed to get that money? I'm a student. The only time I see that amount of money in my hand is at the beggining of the month when my parents send me something to pay my rent...

Now - the "limited" part. Oh, that is so brilliant. Asumming that I have money right now to make a preorder. And I don't. So hey, you can buy all the copies now, because I won't have money for like two months or so and I'll never make an order before all the copies are already gone.

So now I'm sitting on my sofa, eating chocolate pancakes. I'm sad, I've already said goodbye to my imaginary copy of Space Hulk, I have red eyes and well... I hate you Games Workshop. I hope in near future when you want something really bad someone will laugh into your face and tell you don't deserve it.

You really made my afternoon awful. I hope you're proud of yourself.

Mebbe you should be a'begging for some GeekGold so you'll be able to buy a set when someone auctions theirs?

Just a thought.

Or for alternate two-player goodness pre-order the deluxe edition of Twilight Struggle from GMT's P500 list.

Even with shipping it should cost you less than 60 pounds.

You can pretend that the Commies are Genestealers if you want, and shout "For the Emperor!" every time you initiate a coup. You'll never know the difference.

EDIT: Just checked. Pre-ordering Space Hulk will cost me $165 (AU) not including shipping. Pre-ordering the deluxe version of Twilight Struggle will cost me about $80 (AU) including shipping.

Of course Buying this game from GW or eBay isn't the only way to bring it home.



Of course you have to paint it yourself, and add miniatures and blips... but I'm sure it will come in well under 100$ (depending on your level of quality demands/how cheap you can find Terminators/Genestealers on eBay)

Then again, after that much work, maybe 100$ seems like a deal?

They are obviously betting that enough people will be more than willing to shell out the hundred bucks for a new version of SH. I am betting they are right. The sad part of supply and demand is that the supply will ALWAYS cater to the highest paying demand now days. I would imagine they have crunched the numbers well enough to know how many copies they need to sell at that price to turn a profit and keep demands high. By making the purchase a little bit painful people will rationalize to themselves that the game MUST be awesome for them to have paid that price.

Give them a little taste. Make it pricey enough to seem like they are getting a real treasure. Limit supply. Watch them come running and beg for more. The people get what they think they want. The Devil gets his due. Ah capitalism...devil
