Clearly the best solution is to convert all EC leftover amounts into promo credit eligible for PC digital downloads only that expire once the month is over. Did I say month? I meant year. Or week. Or whatever makes that more likely to occur in any remote way.


I have like 5 EC credits left...if you didnt use them you didnt use them. Im not gonna whine about it...I knew the risks and it is what it is. Lets get the next weeks sale goin

It is a defect in language that words suggest permanent realities and people do not see through this deception.

Aye agreed, would have liked to at least grab CKII if the 2012 pack wasn't gonna make it. Rather bummed I didn't get either. But the truth is Tony you've done an amazing job the last two months, and I hope the coming year is just as awesome : )

BTW I can't remember but was the Prototype Bundle from a few months ago, said to never be coming again or something like that? I have horrible memory issues but I thought I read someone saying we weren't going to see it again. Just out of curiosity.

Happy February all!

Google docs? That's what I use. 'Course I wouldn't put anything too valuable there, just extra indie keys and stuff.



Tried that, but it got posted on reddit. >.<

Would there honestly be a notable performance loss with an external installed game running through a 3.0 port though?



I don't have one of them newfangled USB 3 ports myself, but USB 1 & 2 had terrible CPU utilization (and no DMA), but hey, it's an Intel standard -- maybe you should buy a new CPU. So I was wondering if USB3 is similarly bad -- quick searching revealed not as bad, but it still can chew 12% load.

Honestly, I'd just copy whatever on/off an internal.

You seriously think a big company like Paradox should be easily able to just get one person to generate the keys approve and forward them to amazon in a very short time frame :/

Generating keys is like printing money. I'm assuming that the process to approve it isn't a short/quick one, and the people with the authority to approve it were at that meeting in Iceland.

That seems kind of silly for a business to put a transaction on hold (and to a big customer as well) because the important people aren't there to approve (or put aside time to do it). Having said that, like you said we have no idea how this all works. Hopefully something positive happens for the people waiting for these keys to turn up :)

Instead of waiting, you could mosey on over to the Steam trading thread. I just got very competitive prices on Crusader Kings 2 and Warlock from some great CAGs over there. Yeah I didn't get all the CK2 DLC but considering the learning curve on that game if I ever get to the point where I feel the DLC becomes a must have I'm sure I'll be happy to pay for it then.

I also had an EC coupon saved specifically for the 2012 bundle. Hope Tony can work something out. I definitely spent more at Amazon than I had planned because of the EC promotion and am not entirely happy about it. No offense Tony, I know you're doing your best.

You don't really need any of the CK2 DLC to enjoy the game, either... it's perfectly playable without it. Most of it is cosmetic (extra graphics and music) and simply adds flavor to the game -- it's nice to have, but it's not essential by any means. If you find yourself enjoying the game, you'll probably want to eventually pick up Sword of Islam, Legacy of Rome, and The Republic (and maaaaaaybe Sunset Invasion), as these are the "expansion" DLC that add actual content to the game -- mostly in making people playable (Muslims, Republics, greatly enhancing the Byzantine/Orthodox experience), but with a few other additions, as well.

BTW - there is no MW4...yet.
Last MW game was MW3.

$7.5 for a complete pack/edition is the sweet spot for me. My backlog's far too large for it to be worth me paying $10 for just the base game when it's bound to be cheaper before I get around to playing it.


i'd buy it at that price of $7.50 complete or $6 for just the base game.

You should also try the Game of Thrones mod for CK2. It is AWESOME!

I have been trying to get some cheap deals on the DLCs I want, but my need to trade via steam wallet is hindered by the fact that Steam is tending to just put devalued games up for sale and everyone already got those from Amazon :)

Still never saw any resolution on what drm is on these. From what I can tell they never removed any of the settlers7 horrible drm which requires a constant on connection. It thinks your connection is dropped and the game pauses. They have promised for 6mo to remove it on their forums and have shown no progress at all.

Id have loved to buy this pack but with all the issues I see out there on it I just couldnt pull the trigger. Just a warning for others in case you were thinking about it


I have about a dozen games on uPlay and yeah Settlers 7 is the only one that doesn't work in offline mode. Not a problem for me, I have always on internet. But if you don't, or live in a rural area or something with an unreliable connection then yeah - it's a problem.

The only other game I have from the bundle is Anno 1404 (what you guys call Dawn of Discovery in the States) and it doesn't use uPlay. And as far as I'm aware, isn't a Settlers game... :D It is very good though.
I don't have any of the older Settlers games but I suspect they also pre-date uPlay.

Yep, only reason I even bought CK2 to begin with. :) Looking forward to the next GoT season on Netflix disc...


I ended up using all my EC coupons since I didn't think the 2012 Paradox pack would be back due to it being the weekend already in Europe and getting more things to trade with will balance out stuff in that pack.

you can send it to WD directly if RMA needed-blacks have 5 years worldwide guarantee
even receipt is not needed,they check serial


Wow! didn't know that, thank you so much. The problem however with HDDs is that data is always more important than the drive itself and with shipping costs, I may not be able to RMA :D. Anyway, I think I am gonna replace some of the 1.0TB drives with 3.0TB soon and will definitely get WD Black.

Now go snag GW2 @ $22 so we can envy you more, Euro-CAG! ^_~


Actually I am not "Euro". Well, I am pretty close to Europe (Egypt) but most stores (Steam, GMG and Gamersgate) are in USD while Origin and Ubishop are in Euros.
I can't find GW2 on GGG at all, says: "Product not found" and I don't really know why, is it because of my region or they took the deal down. :cry:

We should still be able to use the coupon, since the deal started before the end of the month. I was also holding my coupon out for this deal, and it would just seem wasted.

Oh, I missed it for 5 bux. I wouldn't be upset paying 10 just for 3. The Lost Chapters would be kind of a bonus, though I doubt I would play it. As long as its not a story that would be lost on me without playing 1 or 2... then I'll bite. Yeah, I see that fable 2 was not on pc.. which is kind of baffling. Based on that I would think fable 3 would be an acceptable place to start, right?

Edit: Oh, I bet this bundle was 5 bux with an EC coupon. I wouldn't have been eligible, I used my last one on the microsoft bundle. So no worries there

I've been watching for the Fable bundle, but can't find it. No link on the front page either unless I'm blind.
