We have a pretty cool Victoria 1 thread. And now, we are less than 30 days away from Victoria II. As a longtime Paradox fan, I think its time we make a thread for this upcoming gem. Now, I say this despite the fact that I was horribly disappointed at the bug-ridden piece of shit that was Hearts of Iron 3. I promoted it here heavily until it turned out to be utter, smelly crap - which they are just now merely starting to get into decent shape after four patches and an expansion. This being said, I know that that our favorite Swedish developers learned from their mistakes, and I'm betting on them to have outgrown them by standing up, once again, for their next main title. Amongst other things, Vicky 2 will be the first Paradox title backed by in-house QA and professional testers. Of course, the hope of probably getting a title thats not too buggy isn't enough to generate excitement. For excitement about Vicky 2, you need first of all to be a Vicky/Ricky fan. I know we have many of these here. Then you need to read the Diaries. INDEX of Developer Diaries for Victoria II Then, undoubtedly, youll see the amazing potential of this game. 1835-1935 was one HELL of a century, and this game will give it to you raw! Therefore, I suggest we use this thread to discuss our hopes for the upcoming title and our first impressions, as release is very close now! I'll start, by saying Im planning on an aggressive pan-Islamic Ottoman Empire game first of all. What about you?
