'A great thing for PC gaming,' says Paradox CEO

I've really come to appreciate Paradox Interactive's willingness to be frank. And its work on games that, while niche and not really my scene, are a welcome addition to the industry at large. The company is no stranger to sup... read
The Showdown Effect

You should really be playing The Showdown Effect


It's free for the weekend
Sep 20
When I reviewed The Showdown Effect back in March, I absolutely loved it. Arrowhead are just great at making silly, fun titles. But within my review was a nagging doubt, the worry that it wouldn't be able to maintain the nece... read
Very deep tactical action...with vikings
Paradox Interactive is a publishing machine. It's dabbling in just about every genre under the sun, and now, the company is taking on third-person action in the form of War of the Vikings -- a PC title set to arrive sometime in 2014. It's a bit rough around the edges, but as an action fan, I really appreciated the attention to the tactical nuances that made the games' combat so deep. read feature

Paradox and Fatshark team up again for War of the Vikings


Beards!
Aug 06
Fatshark is applying the War of the Roses framework to a related -- but standalone, it should be pointed out -- combat game called War of the Vikings. Yes, the name pretty much says it all. You in? Skirmishes will take place... read
Guess how many times I died? More times
Teleglitch, released late last year, is quite a wonderful roguelike. It's also really incredibly difficult. Like, "good luck getting to level five" difficult. So when I heard about an upgraded version titled "Die More Edition," I got pretty frightened. How much harder could it get? Way harder. read feature

We're all going to die ... soon

Listen to the smooth voice of Jazz Boatman

Everyone can appreciate this Crusader Kings II trailer


Some things are universally awesome
May 29
I do not play Crusader Kings II and I expect that I would be exceptionally bad at doing so. It is for these two reasons that I would normally have breezed right by this trailer for the new "Old Gods" expansion released ... read
