Thread: AHD Pre-Order Available at US Amazon and Gamersgate

  1. #1

    AHD Pre-Order Available at US Amazon and Gamersgate

    I had read some other threads that suggested there would be no pre-orders, but stumbled upon this at US Amazon digital store this morning. Not only is it available for pre-order, but also 10% off right now. Obvisouly, the Amazon version likely won't work the Steam version, but I would think it would work fine with the Gamersgate version. I have used Amazon download service before and has worked really well and very similar to Gamersgate where you download all the setup files and can store safely on a CD/DVD somewhere.

    Edit: Just noticed also available on Gamersgate too.

    I believe if you pre-order you will get extra blue coins in GG, like 250 I think.

    The first game ever finished in Victoria II for me, a Multiplayer game I was the Game Master Rise of the Secondary Powers
    The Mexican Empire in Rise of the Secondary Powers MP game.
    My last HTTT MP, Grand Campaign.
    The best AAR I have ever seen.

    At least for other Paradox titles, I have been able to use GG expansions/DLC with boxed copies with no problems. My assumption is this would be the same or they would limite themselves from being able to sell expansions to these people.

    Just bought it. Have not used GG before. I assume I cant download it until the release date? I certainly have no option too that I can see anyway.

    WOOT! Thanks for the heads up. Preordered.

    One thing that I have noticed is the use of the word economical when they are describing Victoria II and AHD. Not a big deal but I think they should use the word economic instead.

    The first expansion to Victoria 2 focuses on American Civil War era and enhances the political and economical aspects of the game.

    Carefully guide your nation from the era of absolute monarchies in the early 19th century, through expansion and colonization, to finally become a truly great power by the dawn of the 20th century.
    “Economic” and “economical” are two adjectives that are frequently used interchangeably. They are clearly related but they have, strictly speaking, quite distinct meanings.

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the definition of economic is

    Relating to economics or the economy.

    Economical, however, means

    Giving good value or return in relation to the resources used or money spent; sparing in the use of resources or money.

    So, government policies to do with finance would be economic but fuel-efficient cars would be described as more economical.

    The main confusion arises when writers use “economic” when they really mean “economical”. Take, for example, the phrase “economical with the truth”, a euphemism for lying brought into popular usage by the British civil servant Robert Armstrong.

    Armstrong used the phrase correctly, but many do not, referring instead to being “economic with the truth”. A simple web search will reveal many thousands of instances of this phrase, although it is essentially meaningless.

    In colloquial English, the distinction between the two words is often blurred, but it is always useful to know the correct meanings.

    As an aside, the adverb for both words is the same: economically.

    I've just preordered AHD.

    A week to get it And I'm aching to it; once I saw the awesome features that AHD will add to the gameplay I've not been able to play with vanilla Vicky2.
