What about the Ultimate Paradox Bundle - will it come back as a real deal sometime and not just a late-night-120minutes failure ?

I'm curious how this'll all work.
I guess there'd be DRM that'll probably will allowing for digital transferring; and/or decide if YOU can run said game or not.
I don't know how this'll work w/ Steam games, if Steam doesn't have some sort of digital transferring system in place for their Steamworks DRM.

It'd likely be like Green Man Gamings trade-ins, where Steam games are exempt.

It was a failure because it sold out in under four hours? God forbid that every promotion sells out in four hours. :roll:

I actually thought it lasted a fair bit of time for how scarce Tony said the keys were. It just came down to if you wanted it badly enough to stay up late or set your alarm to grab it.

I think most people are more annoyed at EC coupons expiring than Paradox 2012 pack running out of keys.Tony said it will be back and added 2-3 days to EC coupons just for that pack but it never came back at people got angry because they could have bought something else they want with it.

Gotta say I agree with this...I think it went live at around 11:45 or so PST?

Was available till maybe 4-5am? After picking up, I was refreshing the link and was surprised it was available for that long since Tony kept saying the keys would run out and a lot of people were staying up that night refreshing their screens. I didn't pick it up till 1ish or so and was glad it was still available since I thought it would be done by 12:05 or something. :) If you're familiar with Amazon gold box deals during black Friday, I've seen stuff sell out in 1 second (you click add to cart and you're on the waitlist).

Plenty of people probably set up an alarm for it if they wanted it bad enough.

On the EC coupons, I agree it's unfortunate it didn't come back and I saved 1 coupon for it, but just used it afterwards before the deadline on something else since it didn't look that promising. It helped I had more than 1 coupon and had a few (not many) so ended up using all my coupons. If you had only 1 coupon, yeah, I think it probably sucked.

Like the Square Enix bundle, assume that anything could sell out and try to stay up or just wake up for half an hour. Or better yet, make some friends here and they can pick stuff up for you since pretty much folks could've bought as many copies as they wanted since it was available for a few hours.

It'll save a lot of headache waiting for a deal to come back later as we've seen that doesn't work out too well (eg: Square Enix deal selling out in minutes after it came back, this case...).

Oh for god sake's, it's Paradox people. Their stuff goes on sale all the time. Plus if you get this bundle now you know there is going to be another super mega best ever ZOMGWTF Paradox bundle with a bunch of crap you already have plus the new DLC the pushed out in the mean time because they are huge DLC factory that would make even EA jealous.

Then you'd be in the position 'Well gee I don't know. I already have most of this pack but it's still cheaper to get this pack for the newer DLC and a couple of other crappy multiplayer games I will never play anyway than if I went and bought that DLC separately. Should I get it? But then I'll have to see if I can unload the other keys or just have duplicates that go to waste. Decisions decisions'.

It has already happened to me several times with Paradox bundles on Amazon. Every one is the BEST DEAL EVAR until the next one comes out and then that is the BEST DEAL EVAR.

We didn't even get a CK II booster pack for those who bought the packs in the past this time.

Wait until CK III comes out then get a CK II pack. Otherwise mark my words some newer crazier bundle will come out where it's cheaper just to get a bunch of repeats than to buy the DLC on its own.

In the meantime they just announced a new VickyII DLC! Which will be included in the next mega uber gigantorbundle, giving us many many keys that will again break Amazon.

My problem was that there wasn't really any announced time that they'd be on sale. The rest of the Paradox stuff was up for two days before the big bundle was up suddenly, and gone by the time I woke up. :(

Fuck no! I raided Naxx in classic on my Gnome Mage. I have an opening day hard core achive in Ulduar on my Gnome Mage. When I wasn't on my Gnome Mage, I was on my primary alt (2nd main, really) Druid. And my shammy is horde (Tauren) -- the way the spirits intended.

I hear little hearts beating. yess... beating faster now. Soon the beating will stop.

By and large. This!

But Motoki, I was getting free entertainment watching these CAGs stress and lament over missing Paradox packs. Last year I bought them early (and happy with the catching-up-on-CK2-dlc pack in June), so the rest of the year felt like "again and again" (Energizer Bunny ref). It was good better, but waiting for a new deal here, one I haven't already bought.

I stared the Paradox 2012 pack in the eye and said, I own most of you except for a couple DLCs I can pickup for less on the regular 75% off sales. A mutliplayer-only game that I have no interest in (due to it being multiplayer only), and another game and dlc that I already own. I passed.
