Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise expansion announced

By Alice O'Connor, Nov 04, 2013 11:15am PST

Paradox's publishing plan is pretty clear by now--release an unapologetically PC-y game, then follow up with oodles of expansions and DLC--so it was never a question of if Europa Universalis IV would get an expansion, but when. December 11 is the answer, when Conquest of Par...

Warlock 2: The Exiled bringing more turn-based strategy to PC

By Alice O'Connor, Oct 04, 2013 6:30am PDT

"War. A wise man said it never changes," a gravely voice declares. "But he's dead. Eaten by a dragon in war." It's not easy to make a fun announcement trailer for a hexy turn-based strategy game, but publisher Paradox certainly has a fair crack at it with Warlock 2: The Exil...

War of the Vikings announced for PC

By Alice O'Connor, Aug 06, 2013 5:00pm PDT

Hacking men to pieces is fun and all, we know, but who really cares about the House of Lancaster and the House of York? People who live in Northern England, and no one else. So War of the Roses developer Fatshark is using more interesting murderers for its freshly-announced ...

Europa Universalis IV can import Crusader Kings II saves

By Alice O'Connor, Jul 30, 2013 8:00am PDT

We can get so attached to the characters and worlds we create in video games, missing them even when we're done with the game itself. How thoroughly splendid, then, that Paradox has created a tool to convert Crusader Kings II saves into worlds playable in the upcoming Europa...

Magicka: Wizard Wars gameplay trailer reveals WvW violence

By Alice O'Connor, Jul 18, 2013 9:30am PDT

March's announcement of the PvP-only Magicka: Wizard Wars was a funny one, as though we did all zap our wizard chums with friendly fire for kicks in Magicka, half the fun was the plausible deniability of having monsters to kill. Still, it's looking pretty in the first gamepl...

There are no flippy-floppies and no T-Pain, but the debut trailer for Paradox Interactive's upcoming turn-based strategy game, Leviathan: Warships, does feature a whole lot of smooth jazz. The music and narrator is more akin to something you'd hear on "The Love Boat," but Wa...

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 26, 2013 11:45am PDT

Yo dawg, I heard you like RPGs, so I put an RPG in your RPG so you can roleplay as you roleplay. People tell me I'm "funny". But hey, look, Paradox Interactive is bringing Behold Studios's "meta-RPG" Knights of Pen & Paper to PC in a shiny +1 Edition, so people sitting at de...

Magicka: Wizard Wars announced as PvP-only

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 25, 2013 9:00am PDT

You may not have guessed it, from how many Arcane Novas and Steam Lightning Storms were cast in the direction of other players, but wacky action-RPG Magicka was originally a co-op game. PvP arenas were added free DLC to formalise the wizard-on-wizard violence, and the next g...
