Ok I cant seem to find the link to the Paradox 2012 pack......Damn fast moving threads


The pack hasn't been created yet, all we have now is a listing of what will be in it. Tony said it'll go up sometime today (probably in the afternoon?)

Can someone explain the Paradox games to me? Are they all top-down strategy games like Civilization?


Warlock is the closest thing to Civ 5 in the 2012 bundle. Civ in a fantasy world if you will. Crusader Kings II is a Grand Strategy game as someone mentioned earlier. It's a historical (well, mostly, some of the DLCs take liberties) "simulation" where you control a nation and its ruling family and try to conquer the world. War of the Roses is a 3rd person multiplayer (only) hack and slasher, similar to Chivalry. Those are the three important games in the bundle.

The Paradox Seas Bundle is also back. Looks like Tony forgot that one on his list.

I would have bought this over the war chest. *sigh* Guess I'll have duplicate Victoria IIs...

Btw, is pirates of the black cove anything like Sid Meier's pirates?

Thanks. None of that sounds too appealing considering my backlog, though

It looks like I will get my Crusader Kings II for $5, with other games to boot. I'll need to find homes for Magicka and Sword Of The Stars, since I own those already.


If you don't want the other stuff, you can get the Crusader Kings pack, which includes everything CK related on Amazon (CK Complete + CK2 + CK2.DLCs). It's $5 as well.

I am unsure what you're referencing, can you give me more context?

Cheers,

We are about to launch a new pre-order campaign for an upcoming title and trying to decide on what incentive to go with. Here are the choices:

1. Pre-order X game and get your choice of one of <insert a number here> games from the publisher of X game.
2. Pre-order X game and get $20 off ANY game or games from the publisher of game X. With promotions from publisher X happening around the same time as the campaign launches.
3. Pre-order X Game and get a $10 Amazon Promotional Credit
4. Pre-order X Game for Y% off

These are all real options we're kicking around, I'd like to hear your input, and why you chose what you chose.

Cheers,
Tony

Just an heads up on the Paradox War Chest, King Arthur 1 doesn't contain the standalone DLC and for some reason Steam won't load the header (since it's missing from the store as well)[/IMG]


because this collection no longer exists and it was sold before the standalone dlc
new collection includes sequel as well

Okay, I think I've got this right on the Paradox packs (plentiful and petite)...

Majesty Franchise:
Warlock dlc, does not include Armageddon.
Defenders of Ardania, some DlC, and Battlemagic.

War Chest:
Save for Victoria 2, all are new and unique to this pack of the sale.

Crusader Kings:
A lot of DLC and CK1 complete. These two things (and I use that loosely, good god the dlc on this) make it cost the same as the plentiful pack which has CK2 vanilla. Don't know how much the dlc matters.

2012 pack:
CK1 complete
Starvoid
A Game of Dwarves
War of the Roses and some DLC
Warlock DLC mentioned in the Majesty pack but this one has Armageddon too.


Is this about right? It's a bit hard to keep track of what's been gotten already and what's worth getting if you have some packs. Especially if it has to do with dlc.

Well the coupons sucked this time around. I used one for the Microsoft Arcade bundle out of the many I have. The rest of the games were either too expensive or I bought them already when they were on sale for the same or less back in December like the 2K bundles, Syndicate, and Crysis Maximum. There simply weren't enough games in the $5 or less range with coupon this time.

More helpful translation:
Could we get more games which are < $5?
Could we have less repeats from Dec.?

I think the deals this year were ok with a few being in the $2.50 range, but maybe less broad than last year and certainly less free games. I don't have any complaints though.

You missed having CKII (and it's DLC) in the 2012 pack listing. Otherwise you have everything. From what I've read (just started playing it and excited for more) a lot of the DLC is cosmetic, but a few of them (Sword of Islam, Sunset Invasion, The Republic, and something else) add more actual content to the game. Without Sword of Islam, for instance, you can't play as the arabic nations. Those expansions are what I'm most excited about, especially the republic, because I have been doing a lot of studying about Italy lately and it seems like it'd be fun to play as a merchant empire.

King Arthur 2 came out in Jan 2012, why isn't it in the 2012 pack? That's all that's missing for me in the pack and I only have 1 coupon left... argh.

what else must I get to ensure I get all the Paradox games?
The Paradox 2012 seems necessary for some of the DLC :/

Yea, but one person is all it takes to screw a good thing up. Look at that 50 for 100 coupon from Best Buy.

And believe me, I bend things for some of my CAG brethren. So a "once in a while" is different than what I've seen some do.
