I would hold off on it and wait for reviews. You never know when a game is going to become a quick cash throwout

They're not adding all that much new stuff - you should read the Dev Diaries on the forums (15 so far, I think) - so it's unlikely it'll be RUINED FOREVER. I don't think Paradox does quick cash throwouts, anyway (atleast the actual dev team, not the publishing wing).

Not gonna be out until Q3 2013 as far as I know anyway, though.

This game is silly sometimes. Somehow, I managed to become the Papal Controller. I'm -2 Innovative, I hate the pope (relations), I've got Ecumenism, and I'm somewhat infamous.

Yet somehow, with 0 influence, I got two Cardinals and then papal controller. I beat out my equally sized neighbor with an influence of 51%. I'm planning on going Protestant too.

Also, the pope has been over the Infamy Limit ("They are hated throughout the entire world") for a majority of the game, and there's an anti-pope all the way up in Gwynedd.

Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

A Welsh anti-pope?  :o
I can't even imagine what their scripture would sound like. I'm betting it's not beautiful however.

Take a segment of kobold speech.

Run it through a nonsense-generator.

It's even worse when you consider that the province was under Denmark's control for 37 years right before then. :P

Wow, it's amazing what a little messing around with other nations does to colonization.

BRITTANY is the first and ONLY nation to start colonizing the New World--in 1609! Previously, Brittany was annexed by France. Now, they're a leading colonial power.

Meanwhile, England is annexed by me (PU), Spain is sitting on it's ass punching Mali, Portugal is colonizing random african provinces, France does not exist, the new Mega Navarra which had replaced France is being torn apart, Ireland is my vassal (peacevassal!), Guyenne is busy with its new neighbors such as the aggressive Toulouse, and Mega Sweden is busy quarreling with Mega Denmark.

Go go Brittany! Hurry before Fez puts on their Fezes and gets enough technology to start colonizing!

I started the game yesterday without any clue, basically first time playthrough. What I've learned:
- Incans are a boring faction to play
- Wars are going to fuck you up unless 20k soldiers
- I hate rebels
- I hate no tech advancement

I'm still going to play as Incans, tho.

That's like starting to play DF with no traps, no dangerrooms next to a necromancer tower with an above ground fort challenge modes. What I mean to say is good luck.
