I like Paradox and its ****, so hopefully it will live up to the hype.

There will probably be eighteen DLC packages though, just like with all their other games. I'm probably going to wait until there's a sale a few months after it's released.

I haven't looked into the game very much, though Paradox certainly has the undivided attention of my hype with Hearts of Iron 4 coming out on June 6. Stellaris looks cool though.

Stellaris and Hearts of Iron IV will probably bankroll their next five games if they don't suck, lol.

So you're going to wait a few months then buy the game? I don't know how you could hold back I really don't know! This hype has already made me break my rule of No Pre-Order but damn, you must have some serious willpower :D

When I get this game I will probably start role playing as Space Rome, Space Byzantium or Space British Empire, got my eyes and social life will suffer.

I'm surprised they haven't done a type of season pass however so we can get all major expansions free when they are released which would certainly help save money in the long run.

Then there's the mods! God the Star Wars and Starship Troopers mods!

In regards to HOI IV I, for some reason, am reluctant about it, just something about it that doesn't hype me up, I think it's because you can play up until a certain time limit?

And from the looks of the complexity and micro management it it, wow, and I thought EU4 was complicated!

I think I'll chronicle this game since I'm doing alright so far. It's barely been any time, but I like my start.

I named my species the Foosa because I wanted a funny name for them, and literally the first thing that popped into my head when I was looking at the little fox people was the movie Madagascar and the lemurs being afraid of the fossa. The Foosa Sovereignty is currently a pacifist egalitarian spiritualist megacorporation spanning three tropical planets and a continental one. Our expansion was aided greatly by taking a tradition policy thing that lets us build private colony ships with energy instead of minerals, and I had a large reserve of energy early on.

Our direct neighbors are the Foundation of Sintomoroi’Utlak – a theocratic monarchy that’s roughly our size – and the fallen empire of the Fex’Klanga Guardians, who are actually on good terms with us because they’re spiritualists as well. The galaxy is pretty empty right now because it’s only been a few years.

The Foosa are currently dealing with a mysterious power discovered upon visiting the black hole known as the Demon’s Maw. A transmission was detected coming from the belly of the void, and it manifested itself as a voice that led several scientists and admirals to its death while talking about some kind of “Worm”. The voice stopped when an admiral sacrificed himself in a suicide bombing at the event horizon, but the issues continued. The explosion and silencing of the voice coincided with an earthquake on Madagasca (home planet) that revealed an ancient temple, which quickly became a sight of pilgrimage because of its beauty and supposed relation to our ancestors. Another linked event was the discovery of a ship on the outskirts of our territory being manned by a single admiral, who was still employed by our fleet. The clone-like creature, which appeared to be several decades older than the real version of our loyal admiral, begged for death by combat and spoke nonsense about the same “Worm”. The ship was destroyed by a fleet led by the admiral who was being impersonated or cloned or time traveled or whatever was happening.

During all of the above events, scientists were busy deciphering the messages sent by one called the Messenger, a lone occupant of an escape pod found in the void of a nearby system. Again, the “Worm” was spoken about, and after some analysis of the DNA left behind by the Messenger’s body fluids in the pod, one scientist discovered that the Foosa were one species of potentially many that originated from a single one eons ago. The splits happened through the meddling of a very, very advanced ancient civilization that we don’t know anything about. Eventually he cracked the genetic code and guaranteed the Foosa a return to their original form. However, the project was ordered to be canceled after the people of Madagasca were transformed into horse people with a lust for war. Somehow the leader was spared, as well as the other colonies…except for the planet of Liliopi, which contained several existing buildings that were hyperadvanced when the colonists arrived. They were utilized, but the number of people in the colony quickly became known as not normal, because the pops on the planet kept multiplying until the planet was almost two-thirds full after only several years. None of the original colonists remained and all of the “new” ones seemingly had nothing wrong with them. The incident is currently being researched to discover what happened.

Glad to see you like the game more than you anticipated lol. Once I actually buy a copy and can play multiplayer with you your horse people will be fine battle thralls in my empire. I'll allow you to hold one planet for every ten armies you give me lmao.

I'm about to kick off the galactic war, stay tuned. This should give you an idea of how everyone feels about the space ****'s lmao.

The opening volleys of the First Galactic War have been nothing short of violent and rapid.

While scouting the borders of the Ikarzuri Imperium, my Light Fleet encountered a large group of Crystalline Entities. Wanting to save their strength, I withdrew the Light Fleet and Called in the Capital Fleet. My Capital Fleet consists of a Harbinger class Carrier, three Aralakh Dreadnoughts, two Obelisk class Superdreadnoughts, a Calypso class Superdreadnought and the Flagship, Atlas. Combined they have 147K fleet strength, and weapons to tackle any situation. The Capital Fleet made short work of the Crystals, and I called in my science teams to research the remnants floating through space in hopes of new weapon and armor breakthroughs.

While my science ships were arriving, three popped into the system under the control of the Ikaruzi Imperium accompanied by a 15K fleet to steal the technology. Without warning I ordered my Capital Fleet to open up with all of its might, decimating the protection fleet in moments and killing most of their best scientists in an instant. In that same instant however, nearly the entire galaxy declared war on me. Technically I'm fighting two wars against two factions, the Ikaruzi lead one, and have a defensive pact with the other.

My Light fleet, with a combined strength of 20k combining a horde of ships with a minimum of 60% evasion ability, formed my rapid moving spearhead. A large portion were my MESH class Frigates who utilize nothing but defensive flak cannons to take out enemy fighters, missiles and torpedoes before they can strike. Every ship in the fleet is equipped with jump drives, allowing them to jump from one system to another almost instantaneously. I've been using them as a violent vanguard force to kill enemy fleets as they're detected, paving the way for my Capital Fleet to begin bombarding undefended planets while my Medium Fleet escorts my troop transports to each planet one by one.

Thus far, my Light Fleet has eliminated four 8k fleets one by one before they could unify themselves into a large and dangerous force. It's cost the small ships, who are now sitting at a combined 14.2K strength. But thanks to our ability to pop in and out of systems so quickly, I've been able strike at and capture the home systems of four different empires so far to completely throw their strategy into disarray. Instead of focusing on combining their might to tackle my fleets or attack my home turf, they're now divided trying to take back their individual home systems all at once and all on their own. The one exception has been the militaristic Tzynn Empire, who have sent their large numbers of fleets in every direction but their own territory to reinforce their neighbors.

Thus far my Capital and Medium Fleets remain completely unscathed, while my Reserve Fleet made entirely out of the ships captured from assimilating empires stands at the ready along with the constantly growing Defensive Fleet to repel any incursion into our vast territory. Multiple military installations are in orbit around the Arcturus Star encased in my Dyson Sphere to protect our energy reserves, and after the capitals of the other Empires have fallen phase two of my strategy will commence.

The Foosa have an army 1.5k strong and are on equal footing with the rest of the galaxy, lol.
