Them and Basshunter collectively confirm my suspicions. Sweden is the best Scandinavian nation.

In Europa Universalis II i almost created a world spanning Swedish Empire. I lost the save however so i never got to finish it.

In HoI i manage to dominate those pesky germs with USA. Pretty funny. German tanks and aircraft are known to be some of the best weapons during WWII. Very high quality. But there tanks where low tech compared to mine when i entered the war. I did not have many but they where top quality. Managed to march all the way to Moscow with those units. The eastern front was a drag. Slow troop movement. But heck i had to follow the German in to USSR. That is how Moscow became a US enclave. Japan was a pain to. Not mainland japan but there Korean, Manchuria and Chines holdings. Long live the USA Empire!

I also played USSR in HoI. With one goal! To develop the nuke as quick as possible. Got my first nuke ready before Germany and I fell on bad terms. To bad for them. Most of there armies where channeled though a few provinces. Manage to kill of most of them with two nukes. Never got any longer with that game however. Save lost :(

Paradox games are brilliant, I don't seem to get into Europa Universalis as much as Victoria: Revolutions or HoI2: DD: Armaggeddon. Victoria is quite complex, sometimes too complex, but it's fun to fiddle around and... split your POPS for your industry, or agriculture. HoI2 on the other hand is almost completely a war game, actually you need victory points (from provinces) to win, nothing else, but there are almost limitless possibilities playing the game. Replayability is incredible. There's even some mods that switch up countries completely and make the game completely refreshing, and well... fun.

Paradox will be publishing Mount & Blade. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. :D

A game that does not cease to exist outside of observer awareness. Awesome.

I'm looking forward to their "Lost Empire: Immortals". From what I gather, its actually a sequal to their original game Lost Empire, which didn't do to well, but apparently they've taken what they learned from that and vastly improved the game.

Is it as good as EU3?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I have never played any of those other games you all have mentioned but I did play Knights of Honor.  Back when I played it the game had all I  was looking for. I could pick any nation that existed at the time periods and was able to win a campaign using the various win scenarios.

The HOI3 demo runs really slow on my computer, meaning I need an upgrade for a Paradox game. How embarrassing.
