:lol: Nice! Looks like an easy way to earn the "Capitalism, Ho!" achievement. I just finally got mine from buying The Guild Complete today.

well this is quite annoying. Instead of giving you a discount, Alan Wake is one of the games where your ign discount is given back in the form of blue coin cashback. So I don't have enough blue coins (even though I would if they just gave me the discount straight up). Oh well, looks like I'll have to pass on it.

It'll probably be slightly cheaper during the summer Steam sale in a few days anyway, best to wait until then.

Yeah, I expect a 75% off during the summer sale. I was going to buy it anyways if it could of all been just my blue coins, but if I have to pay for it I'll just pass on it.

It won't let me buy it with Paypal. Only that other thing Rixie or something. It will let me use Paypal for other stuff but that is the only option I have for Alan Wake.

Alan Wake seems to be a bit of an enigma. It's the one product that gives the IGN discount back in blue coins rather than reducing the cost. I didn't even realize it can't be purchased with PayPal but sure enough I tried it and I can't.

I'm going to ask GG why exactly it's like that. It will probably be too little too late if I even do get a response, but oh well. I think I might also just reach out to them and see if I can get any sort of presence from them on CAG. Worth a shot.

If you really want the deal you can always buy 12000 blue coins with PayPal and pay with those.

I thought it was weird too. I was going to send them an email or whatever but figured it seemed, like you said, too little too late. Probably just wait till later now. I seen a hard copy at Wal-Mart couple weeks ago for $15 and talk myself out of it. So when I seen this I thought sure but I'm kinda over it now ha. I didn't even think about the points earlier or would have just done that.

I don't think that it will activate on steam no. I also doubt that it will get a daily discount, as it doesn't even have the 40% discount that most of the other paradox games have.

They never put that damned ship simulator on sale I don't think. The only reason I have it on Steam is because it came in the Paradox pack last year when the Steam publisher packs were still complete packs.

Oh well :( I was hoping for a complete pack sale, but it doesn't look likely. I just picked up a boxed copy for $4.20 which is actually steam activated, but was going to return it if this went on sale.

Okay now I am curious, where are they selling these mysterious Steam activated retail boxed Paradox games? Half Price books?

Yessir :)

With the coupon today it is 40% off of $7. The Sunday coupon is 50% off one item (but I won't be near a HPB Sunday). I didn't check to see if the other Paradox games were also Steam, but Ship Simulator Extreme had the Steam logo on the front of the box.

There's one down the street from me so I should probably head down there. I've bought some casual games there before like Chocolatier and Dogz :lol: but it didn't occur to me that some of that stuff would activate on Steam.

Yeah, they should have a newish shipment of PC games in since both I went to did and had pretty much the same stuff. You have to dig around to find any steamworks stuff but there is some (and obviously just buy it if it is new since losers sell back steam redeemed games to them). They had a ton of cool casual stuff, but I passed since I just bought a big 20 Game Legends of Terror casual game collection. Check the clearance too since on occasion they clearance out some of the casual stuff or simulator stuff.

They actually had new copies of Agricultural Simulator 2011 for 6.99, but that's still too rich for my blood.

Awesome (well that there is a summer sale)! Nothing for me this week, but I have some blue coins burning through my pocket and am sure something worth my coins will pop up this month.

Just picked it up with Blue Coins and it does not.

Another non-steam deal, Wanderlust 4-Pack for 19.09 if you have the IGN discount. That's over half off I think per copy.

For those of you unfamiliar with GG sales, daily deals join the regular sale (at an albeit lesser discount) after they're daily deals. Unlike Steam, you don't have to worry about buying a game and it going for cheaper later on in the sale.

On the off chance that this changes for the Summer Sale, there's always the 14 day any reason refund policy.

As long as they do not have a buy 2 get 1 free, or something like that, I can usually fight the urge. :-)

But that 1C complete is something I always check. Kicking myself for missing that sale... twice...
