this is my first entry to this forum and I am not sure if this is the right place for my question, so please have patience.
Namely, while browsing for holiday gifts for my family, last week, I stumbled upon AGEOD's Military Startegies II games containing Pride of Nations, Napoleon's Campaigns and World War One - Gold Edition bundled onto one disc, and issued by Paradox Interactive, probably during the period while AGEOD was part of Paradox (I know it is not the case any more). This bundle was a real bargain and since I owned only Pride of Nations so far, I bought it. When I got home it turned out that it was too good to be true. On the case there is warning that games have to be activated on Steam ("Product offered subject to your acceptance of the Steam Subscriber Agreement (SSA). You must activate the product via ..."). I don't have Steam accout, nor want one, I am buying my games from AGEOD, Matrix or GoG, but I did try to check availability of this bundle and every one of the games on Steam and they don't seam to be available there (at least not anymore) .
Since AGEOD owns these games again, is there any way for me to avoid Steam and install and play them ?
