It looks like Matrix Games managed to pry the Talonsoft game line loose from EA, which was doing sweet FA with it. They also have Norm Koger working on an update to The Operational Art of War, too, which should be sweet. So in the unlikely event that I ever get my bills squared away, I can get an updated copy of TOAW! Yay!
Unfortunately, the news from the gaming world isn't all good. Rest in peace, Fred.
