Anyone registered on the Paradox Interactive forums...

check your email, because everyone's (well it sounds like they're giving it to everyone) getting a code for Europa Universalis 3: Chronicles (which is all the expansions; Napoleon's Ambition, In Nomine, Heir To The Throne, and Divine Wind) fo free.

of course, I have it and need to find someone to give it to, but still, get your free shit... it's also a super fantastic game, one of my absolute favorites.

edit; only if you were subscribed to the newsletter, apparently

Wow. That's super generous of them. Don't have an account, personally, but still -- good on 'em.

Anyone want mine? I already own the game.

@Kaiserreich: I've actually not played any of Paradox's games before; I find them intriguing and intimidating at the same time. How difficult would it be for someone with limited strategy gaming experience to pick up and play? I'm kind of interested, but I wouldn't want to steal the opportunity from someone who might get more play out of them.

Nice of them to do, thanks for the heads up.

So... uh, if anyone is willing to drop one of those my way I'd like... uh, totally be cool with that. At least, assuming signing up right now wouldn't net me a copy since that would be sorta fucked up.

@EchoEcho: Sorry man I didn't see you're reply and sent the code off to someone else.

#11 Edited by EchoEcho (825 posts) -

@Kaiserreich: That's totally fine, duder!

@Animasta: I do believe I'll give this a look -- thanks for the link.

@EchoEcho: I still have my code, by the way, so if you like what you see you tell me :)

Thanks for the heads up!

EDIT: I'm getting a 503 error trying to log in. Server over load!

EDIT 2: Now it's only 503.

AND WE'RE BACK.

If any one has an extra code I would love to get it. Thanks.

Well here I thought this was going to be about their forums or something being hacked.

Wait a minute, I've got nothing in my box. Is there a direct link somewhere?

it should be in your email account, it just gives a code... are you sure you used your regular email? I had an old email account it was registered with

I just looked at the original announcement, and apparently you need to be subscribed to their newsletter, which I am not. Ah well.

well, now we know (it makes sense now that I think about it).

@Animasta: Well, I just woke up and it doesn't look like anyone's claimed that code of yours (at least in this thread), so if you do still have it and no one else has laid claim, I'm willing to give this game a shot.
