Europa Universalis III

Postby [Aliens]Falconer » Sun Apr 26, 2009 8:56 am

I have gone back to where my gaming started, and am currently very much into strategy games...

Right now this is what I'm playing: http://www.europauniversalis3.com/

I won't bore you with details, but in short you take control of a nation beginning at 1399, and run it (not as the supreme ruler, but more like the power behind him/her) until 1820.

I decided to go for Sweden, and had to deal with being a Denmarks vassal to start with...

"Today", about 40 years later, I've broken free, and have waged a few wars increasing my realm around the baltic sea....
Unfortunately waging a lot of wars makes your economy go down the drain, and my inflation is among the highest....
I'm trailing in domestic development as well, and will have to concentrate on that for quite some time...

Oh, before I forget... I had a military allience with Scotland, but the traitors refused to honour the allience when I went to war with Denmark-Norway.... :x :x
So I had to fight that battle on my own, and with just a wee bit of luck managed to win that war and increased my realm with 4 more provinces...
But Scotlands behaviour won't be forgotten, and I plan to forge an allience with England in a few years (when my economy can handle another war) to once and for all get rid of the treacherous bastards :evil: :evil: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Here's my realm at gamestart (1399):

And in the year 1443:

"Son, how would you like to play for Man United?"
"No thanks sir. I've had a better offer."
"What could be better than Man United?"
"Man City!"

Oh, these aren't ingame screenshots...

They're taken from the start menu, so they just give you a view of the current political situation....

So when is Gaz's first Birthday? This game came out last year... :lol: :lol:

Sure, the graphics is a bit old, but you can only do so much without getting into loads of tiresome cinematics in a game like this.... :wink:
