Andreas:
Could be, especially considering the low daily volumes that have become the norm.
Cheers

While I like blood it is being killed in the newsgroups.
Most people are saying that the engine that it is based on is too old with quake out. Alot of people are saying that it was a waste of their time to download it?? Go to comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.action. It also seems to crash a lot. I think people are going to wait for unreal.
Just my two cents.

Really? I know quite a few people that have gotten it and all of them liked it. Plus I haven't heard about many crash problems except for older computers.

I'm very aware of the shallow minded "Quake-lover vs. buildengine hater" biased reviews showing up on the newsgroups. I like the wimpy ones that say Ohhh the games too difficult, or the enemies react too fast. The reviews remind me of the Quake vs Duke Nukem rivalry of last year.

With regard to crashes. Monolith now has a patch available that fixes all of the major bugs reported so far. The URL is blood.com

IMHO, I don't think gamers are going to quit gaming till September, (Unreal's tentative release date). In fact its going to become real competative before then with Blood, Shadow Warrior, Dark Forces2, Hexen2, and Quake2 all scheduled for release before September.

Cheers

For more gamer opinons about Blood go to:
gtinteractive.com.
Must say the GT site is very receptive to suggestions !!
I sent an email about a week ago suggesting that they modify their real-time chat forum to be more like the SI forum and guess what happened. I really enjoy owning stock in such a receptive and adaptive company as GTI.
Cheers

Pool Status for predicting GTIS price at close on 7-3-97.
As of 3/14/97 close. Closing Price 7 7/8. Weekly change +1/8

16 weeks to go.

Current 7/3/97
Ranking Name Prediction Variance
------- -------------------- ---------- --------
1 BOB CHURCHILL 9 1/8 - 1 1/4
2 Eric Grob 9 7/8 - 2
3 Buddy Conyers 11 1/2 - 3 5/8
4 Andreas Puppka 12 1/2 - 4 5/8
5 William Gizzo 15 - 7 1/8
6 Derek Coons 15 3/4 - 7 7/8
7 James E. Odom 16 1/2 - 8 5/8

The stock is still flatlining. Incredible that a stock as
volatile as this would turn so mellow for such a sustained
period of time. Can it go on indefinitely? I don't think so.
Niether do any in the pool.

Still time to join in! Deadline is 3/31/97.

Have the Blood patch. Going to try it out now.

Ron Chaimowitz, chief executive of GT Interactive Software, which
has an exclusive pact to supply software to Wal-Mart stores, hailed
the latest effort as a benefit to customers. GTIS offers the same 500
titles it racks in Wal-Mart stores on the site, but Ingram's software
offering pushes the total number into the thousands.

I'm in at $9.00.

I know to some I'm a boob and to others, just a balloon head. I'm as bullish as most (so far), but this is classic turnaround stuff and WS may consider current earnings more credible than future earnings. As a turnaround, big money may wait one or two extra Q's than expected. Also, Q4 (fall season) is what really matters in revenues, and product returns can't be counted until Q1.

My guess is an extra buck, then two, three, etc., at every continuous Q report of stronger eps.

Things look good, but IMO $15 may come a little slower than some suggest. Finally, software and games is a highly volatile business, and a lot of things could still go wrong.
