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!
January 1951, the world is in flames and has been in a state of near constant war and I have dropped more Nuke’s than I would like to admit. I think back to the early months of my adventure with Italy in Hearts of Iron IV, and I can’t help but wonder what might have been if I had made some different choices.
Who said Halloween should only be celebrated on the 31st October? What’s that…everyone in the world? Well apparently nobody told Paradox Interactive as just last week they released a new Halloween themed update for Knights of Pen & Paper.
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.
We look at each other across the bloody and disorientating mess that the battlefield has devolved into.
He casually raises his shield and then bows. I bow in return. There is a brief almost serene pause (punctuated slightly by a wounded-man running between us) and then we charge.
Who’d have thought it with all the looting and pillaging; Vikings are sticklers for etiquette, at least this is the case in War of the Vikings.
I’ve been getting ever further involved in Europa Universalis IV over recent weeks thanks to some fantastic multiplayer matches with friend of The Reticule, Craig Lager. This really is a brilliantly deep game, and one that I am determined to deliver a Verdict on soon. For now though, I will have to play some more as Paradox Interactive have just released a hefty patch for this most grand of grand strategy games.
Bang. I’m dead again.
Bang. Thwack. Shot then cut in half by a thrown sword.
Thump. Someone just slapped me with what appears to be a broom. Hey wait… aren’t you supposed to be on my team? Welcome to The Showdown Effect Beta.
I am a massive fan of the work that Paradox do, they release some really innovative titles, and while I may not love them all, their dedication to the PC market is heart-warming. They have had a busy week at Gamescom with two new game announcements and a couple of trailers for already revealed games. Hit the break for a quick rundown of what they have been showing off.
I think Paradox are winning my ‘Publisher of E3’ award for their constant reveal of lovely little trailer for games which aren’t just the norm. Check this one out for A Game of Dwarves and tell me that doesn’t make you look forward to seeing more of the game. Hopefully we will soon see more of this one.
Ahhh Paradox, what will you think of next I wonder? I’ve just taken a little gander at the wonderful E3 trailer for Dungeonland, a co-op action point-and-slash game. The trailer is after the jump, it sees Mark Venturelli lead designer of Brazilian developers Critical Studio talk through four key features of the game all while a heap of game action takes place. It is a bright colourful game, and it looks cute and, most important, fun. Check out the video below.
Over at E3 Paradox Interactive have revealed their planned integration of TwitchTV into their upcoming title The Showdown Effect. While so far at E3 we have seen Nintendo reveal more on the WiiU and Microsoft and Ubisoft turn their events into concerts, this announcement from Paradox is perhaps the most relevant to expanding gaming communities.
