Been playing Europa Universalis III again.
For those who don’t know, it’s a PC game where you control any nation that existed between the years 1453 and 1789. It’s a grand strategy game where instead of controlling the battle, you control the armies, you control the economy etc.
Well I decided to play as England as I have never played as them before. Fuck me the start is hard. You start at war with France as part of the end of the Hundred Years War and they have a fucking ridiculous manpower pool.
Well it took me 5 years, but I managed to win. They conceded a huge amount of coast and I vassalised Brittany and gained a kick arse alliance with Burgundy.
I’m gearing up for round two.
I am well aware to you all that this is jargon that means nothing. Thanks for reading this pointless post :P.
Anyone ever been playing EU3 when you inherit a country with a huge, long-established colonial empire, rushing to build a the armies you'll send running around trying to stomp out rebellions, only to inherit ANOTHER huge empire before you're done and having to start the whole process over again on the other side of the world?
Or is it just me?
EU3 - Best Superstrategy game.
Take Civilization 4 and multiply that by like 200.
Control any nation in the world that existed between 1399 and 1822.
Check it out here
This game is the best, the EU3: Chronicles is available for $30 or so, definitely get it if you like strategy games.
