EDIT: I'm not super confident we'll get more keys at this point, my Paradox folks are still in Iceland and not back until next week. Due to the timezone difference I was hoping to get have keys in my inbox when I woke up this morning. No such luck.

Next week, hm. Will the coupons be extended?

Regards,

It's ok, I trust that you will try to get the best price possible.
One reason why I am asking for it, is because I am pretty sure someone is going to be selling a lego bundle activated on steam, its in the steam registry. http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/19222
The apps tab on that includes all WB lego games.
It won't be a bundle sold on steam itself, because under billing type it says "ProofOfPrepurchaseOnly" which is a key, and items sold on steam itself under billing type say "BillOnceOnly"
Don't know who will be selling it, or if it will ever actually happen, even anytime soon.
Was hoping you can get a seperate key version :)


Nice catch. I wonder who has this in the works then? It'll be definite buy from me, but I would like to support Amazon of course.

Good call out, I pulled it from the OP until I know if we'll get more keys today. I meant to do it last night but had to crash. I don't want people who aren't following the thread to show up and wonder why I'm linking to something without a buy box.

This post made me sad :cry: , all because my body needs sleep I don't get amazing deal.... /cry

I don't blame Tony I blame...the Norwegians!!!! Stupid time differences!

But I would love a Paradox pack opportunity of at all in your power Tony. Thanks!

Tony,

Have you given any consideration to doing a tie-in with Amazon Prime customers? Something like a free game periodically, coupons, or a static discount? Prime is a bit costly unless you really make use of it (which I happily do). I'm just wondering if it would be a way to cross-promote that would boost both sides.

I can pitch a full bundle but there's no way we'd get both HP, both Batman and LOTRO for $20, there's too many licensing fees involved in what you just described, which is why we try and bundle stuff in which licensing fees all go to the same person when possible (Lego stuff goes to Lego and they pay out their own licensing fees from the IPs for Batman, Lotro, Batman all goes to a different group, Lotro goes to yet another). We've tested cross licensed bundles before the pricepoints generally aren't as attractive.

Just a heads up.

Cheers,
Tony


Is it possible to get them all on sale separately, then treat it like an a la carte option?

It's a promotion from GAME in the UK. I'm not sure when it goes live, what the price point will be, or whether it will be available outside of the UK.

awesome!
i've tried using Excel for stuff like this.. but never had the persistence to continue after awhile.. :/

if only there's a cool Chrome extension or something


Excell is excellent for this kind of simple storage. I'd love to know of a good site for cd-key storage that provides other services as well.

I think a HP+LOTR bundle for $10-12 like the previous Batman+HP one would be slick for those of us who decided Batman Lego 2 was worth it on its own.

Also, you might try an "Essential Batman: For The Kid and the Adult" bundle where you have Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY, Arkham City GOTY, Batman Lego 1, and Batman Lego 2 in one low priced bundle. Essential Batman for diehard fans of two different age groups. Something to build up to the launch of Injustice with Kevin Conroy as Batman.

Btw, any chance you're building up Capcom contacts so you can give us some deals on the new DmC's Steam keys? I want that game, but that $50 is far too much for a single player game that I'll enjoy just the once.

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

Disappointing but not terribly surprising. I held off using my coupon on the CKII pack planning to get the 2012 Paradox pack. Is there any chance of extending the coupons through Saturday on those other Paradox packs if the 2012 keys don't come in?

would there be anyway to let us purchase the bundle knowing that we may not get keys for a week? kind of like a preorder?


I would love that. I don't mind waiting a few extra days for the keys, as long as I know I will get them whenever they are ready.

I was really hoping to get in on this deal because it rocks and it was at work when it was available.


I'm in the same boat. I was at work when the bundle came live, and there were already no more keys when I tried to purchase it on my break.

I'm only reposting this here as I know there was at least one CAG in this thread looking for a GW2 deal and I'm not sure where he's located.

GGG has Guild Wars 2 - $22 Only available in Europe/UK, as these are European server keys.


Not sure if this was me you're referring to, but I've been harping on about GW2 since the EC promotion started. Oh, the rollercoaster-like high and low of seeing it for 22 bucks and then seeing it's EU only (I'm from the US). $22 is cheaper than I've ever seen it anywhere. :( Ah well, thank you for posting that anyways, Asheskitty. One of these days we'll see a stateside sale like that. C'mon Tony, twist the arms of those NCSoft guys and make it happen for February.... please?? :pray:

Indeed they didn't remove it.
That's exactly the reason why I won't buy it.

Thanks for the lead! I live in the states but perhaps one of the other GW2 deal seekers can take advantage of this.

If this happens would it be possible to run it as a deal of the week instead? No more EC coupon, but $15 for that bundle is still a smashing deal.

Hey Tony,

So maybe I'm alone in thinking this and I feel like people bug you a lot about these things as it is but would there be anyway to let us purchase the bundle knowing that we may not get keys for a week? kind of like a preorder?


I'd be up for a 'pre-order' like this.

edit: we all want those super cheap but until fanboys quit showering activision with their money every time they crank out another CoD we won't see it.

I can get down w/ this...
...but, I don't see Activision letting this games hit cheap, given how WELL that COD series sells.

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

two worlds 2 (can't find steam version on amazon)
risen 2

Already got these two.

About Two Worlds 2 - I bought that (Base Game Only) from Retail a long while back; and also bought the GOTY Edition (for POTFF) from Gamersgate.
I made sure I went Non-Steam on that b/c Steam version would use both Reality Pump's Homebrew DRM + Steam DRM.
Steam-Version really shouldn't even have to deal w/ Reality Pump's DRM, if you ask me - I'm just saying. {shrug}
3rd party DRM + Steam DRM is absolute bullcrap.

About Risen 2 - won that in a contest from GameFront, not too long after the game was released. :D

Yes I did, and refer to these two threads for why there was such a large update.

http://forum.paradox...al-preparation

http://forum.paradox...ntion-Articles

IF I read it correctly, aside from the minor changes there is going to be a new version of war of the roses released as Kingmaker edition, a free upgrade for all those that own the game that includes new maps and Assault and Assault Gate modes. There will be a free trial of the game and in preperation of that this patch puts that in place. The edition should release at the end of March. And there will be a Brian Blessed voice over premium DLC for $4.99 sometime this month. That is all paraphrasing and off memory but if you read those you will get more detailed information. Hope that helps and I'm pretty excited the new stuff looks like it will help the longevity of the game.

EDIT refer to this article. http://www.digitalsp...-roses-dlc.html

They are updates for the games. Here is a comprehensive list of what it included.
