    I'm fairly sure you can buy a hard copy, check amazon.

    Why is it several people have expressed interest (not just here) about getting EUIII Chronicles just a couple of weeks after it was on sale on Steam and GamersGate for two weeks for $7.49?

    However it is totally worth whatever the full price is :) And I second getting it off of GamersGate. plus you get 5% of your purchase back in blue coins which are great to sue to buy games that are massively on sale (Like Trine is currently $1.99) or DLCs like the unit packs (just add some early game variety to western and eastern nations, I do reccomend using your BCs to get them) for EU3.

    I hope Sengoku turns out to be an awesome game, because it looks pretty good :)

    Also I'm pretty sure that is the Hearts of Iron 2 music playing in the trailer. Dunno why, but eh now I want to nuke someone...

    Like i said in the Specials thread, Pride of Nations is half off on Steam for a week, because there's some new DLC pertaining to the American Civil War.

    It's because I didn't happen to look at Steam or GamersGate. I was starting to get bored with Civ4, and I read all those terrible reviews for Civ5, so I decided to move to this. I only started looking in late January, with google searches, and then only started to get interested after reading through this forum and looking at some gameplay videos.

    Although 50% off, I wouldn't have argued buying it then... if only.

    Paradox games are literally on heavy special somewhere every second week. Even new games go on heavy discounts merely months after they come out. I'd never pay full price for them unless I wanted to play them as they are released... But who wants to do this considering the patching required?

    I still need to wait, going on vacation for a week now... I'll try to download it when I get back. Anyway, thanks for all the help from all you people :D.

    P.S. One last question... how does multiplayer work in these games?

    Someone hosts and the others connect, people often use Hamachi to set it up as well. Each player controls a nation and you all have to agree on the speed. I have no interest in multiplayer though so I haven't played it but there is a multiplayer game going on in this forum right now.

    So it's the same idea as civ multiplayer... The only thing is, the site calls it co-operative, not sure what that meant.

    In my experience, multiplayer games in eu3 tend to feature the human nations in permanent alliances. I think this makes the game more fun as, bolstered by powerful alliances, human players tend to play much more aggressively, and are willing to do really ludicrous things they'd never think of doing in sp.

    So, I've played two games of Darkest Hour so far, and quit both of them early because Germany got absolutely stomped. In the first game, they couldn't dent the Soviets and lost by '43, in the second one they didn't even manage to conquer France. Is this just bad luck, or does this happen a lot?
    The first game was vanilla DH, in the second one I upped the number of active tech teams and made it slightly easier to remove dissent, but that can't have this much of an impact, can it?

    I've been playing Kaiserreich on Darkest Hour; won the Civil War as the United States. Really weird/awesome game. Qing China and Russia aligned with Germany, and China declared war on Japan. Japan pretty much dominated and took over China, then was overrun by Russia. However, Japan somehow got to Murmansk and pushed to Petrograd and an event fired, which forced Russia to turn Soviet (no idea why it would trigger that). Then, France overran the Italian Federation and Carlist Spain.

    I have an equal chance of joining the Entente or Mitteleuropa, and I don't which to pick. Germany is still at war with Japan, but the Entente remains peaceful for now. It's 1942, so I'm not sure if any more war events fire. I'll definitely take on the Syndicalists either way.

    Could you tell us a little more about this Kaiserreich mod? Timeframe, etc.? Seems like it is at least the 1860's to WW2.

    IIRC, Kaiserreich is based around a world in which the Central Powers won the First World War. I think it starts in 1936.
