Everyone loves a good old expansion pack, don’t they? Especially Paradox Intereactive, who, at this weekend’s PDXCON have announced a slew of expansions, including a dive into the world of boardgames. We’ll get to that in a bit, for now, we’ll start with Stellaris.
Paradox are an awfully busy studio these days, I don’t know how head honcho, Fredrik Wester keeps everyone going! They’ve recently released a new expansion for Crusader Kings II, are working on an expansion for Europa Universalis IV and are busy working on updating Hearts of Iron IV. Busy bees indeed!
There has been a lot of nastiness going around the web this past week, and sadly I’m not just talking about the real issues affecting the world at the moment. You see, there are some elements of the gaming community who prefer to spend their time attacking journalists and developers rather than paying attention to issues such as the Islamic State’s horrendous actions in Iraq and Syria or the militarization of the police in Ferguson over in the US.
Those people who think it is fair to attack developers and journalists on any level need to wake up and take stock of what really matters.
I think that is about enough of that unpleasant business, so on with Our Week in Games.
Paradox Interactive have had a busy week of Gamescom announcements and media blasts with a new trailer for Hearts of Iron IV leading the way. They followed that up by announcing Cities: Skylines, an expansive sequel to the Cities in Motion series with first details on expansion to Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II then being revealed. Read on for the roundup.
Paradox Interactive are one of the big players in the games industry, and they had a pretty impressive this years E3. Their CEO, Fredrik Wester (the man in the image above) has a clear vision for the company, and in this interview he talks about E3, digital distribution and some upcoming titles from Paradox.
You can always trust Paradox to get things done, a whole bunch of trailers for a nice little group of games. Shall we get started?
