Paradox Interactive

Recommended Posts

Wasn't quite sure where to put this so thought I'd start a new thread.

 

Soooo...Paradox. Specialists in the really immersive, really detailed and really fvcking hard real time strategy. Anyone else enjoy? 

 

I've only got into Stellaris so far but it's proving to be excellent - apart from the moment where 30+ hrs of gameplay get wrecked by that fallen empire awakening and proceeding to stomp you into the dust.

I've got about a billion hours in EU4. lol

 

Not sure where to start. The most ludicrously epic game of all time. I used to like the total war series but they just don't cut it any more. 

 

How is Stellaris? I've been put off by the fact there's ten thousand dlc for EU4 so I'm working under the logic that Stellaris basically won't be finished until 2085.

It's damn good. As you say they're probably going to be DLCing it until the heat death of the Universe but what they have right now is really really good anyway. 

 

I've heard good things about EU, but it seems almost too big for me what with all the addons and the like. lol

Yeah you need to get a complete version of EU4 in the sales. 

 

It's amazing but it takes some serious reading of the wiki to get in to.

HOI & Vic are better though.

Steam Sale.

 

PoE 18 bucks, EUIV basic 10 bucks.

 

Hmm....

Will basic EUIV do for me or am I gonna end up having to spend stupid money on expansion packs?

 

I'd probably try and pick up a few of the older expansion packs if they're cheap, the vanilla game would be barely recognisable to me now.

Any particular ones to recommend?

I dunno, it's hard to say because I've got so many I can't really remember which is which, what features were added where etc.

Nae problemo, I'll take another look and pick and choose.

 

One more question: PoE White March, yay or nay?

 

 

Definitely white march, yes, adds some good extra content. 

 

Keep in mind it's an expansion to do "during" though, not after the main story. 

 

Start it about level 7ish as a deviation from the main story (the game might prompt you on this.)

Got it. Thanks for all your help.

 

Wallet isn't going to like this one.

EU is quite epic, haven't played it for some time though. Found HoI:3 to be a bit overwhleming for a newbie, even with the habit of EU.
