* Diamond Ultimate Super Chronicles Edition
Paradox doesn't understand the concept of "complete" :p

Just did the same thing, and it's awesome. Indeed, Giant Desert Scorpions can fire crossbows, parry blows, stab you with bolts, smash you with crossbows...

That interview was really interesting. I'm thinking the coalition system is going to have a massive impact on the game, for the better. I imagine it's going to be much harder for doom empires to appear as smaller weaker countries will join together and the larger countries will get relationship penalties to each other to stop doom alliances. 
This would really change the balance and would stop countries like England rofl stomping the rest of the British Isles as the smaller Celtic countries will likely be a (semi-historical) coalition.

Good to also seem to same level of modding support, not that I expected less. Multiplayer improvements sound lovely but until they do something with the pause/time system I doubt I could get into it. I said it once and I'll say it again: Defcon's simultaneous pause system is the best for a game like this. As the game scales in a decent amount of players the time system can become more "democratic" so more players would have to set it to a lower/higher speed to change it.

Yayyy, I've read the entire EU3 thread, played it a bit a while ago, and was about to rebuy it.

But now I'll wait for this. Woohoo, another game I actually think I'll play for years.

Can't hurt to pick up EU3 either to "test the waters". I think I saw the Chronicles edition on Steam for like 4 bucks on the summer sales. Not a whole much for a game that has given me endless amounts of enjoyment.
The modding scene is almost where Paradox games really shine. There are some great mods out there that have had years of development while EU4 won't have the benefits of mods until a few months after release.

But with the point being that the game will definately will get those mods. Eventually, but as long as they don't nerf out the entire customization of the game, it'll be a good buy. I don't mind paying full price for a game that is something I'll play for ages. I might pick up EU3 while I'm waiting for part 4 to be released though.

(I just had a Diablo 3 shudder moment. That game HAS to get better. It was my last full price purchase and I still haven't finished it. But it's because I couldn't be bothered. If Paradox doesn't do this to EU4, then I'll be happy).

Paradox generally doesn't screw its customers over. They know what they want (customization, modding support, etc).

The addition of 'hotjoin' is good news. I can't even count the number of times everybody has had to rehost because someone cut out.

Wow, they couldn't even be bothered to design a new map - check out the trailer, its the same land masses from EU3.
