Paradox Interactive at PAX East 2012

by Greg DeVriesMarch 26, 2012

Paradox Interactive has announced today that it will be making its first appearance at PAX East this year. They will be bringing with them War of the Roses and The Showdown Effect. War of the Roses is a 3rd-person multiplayer game that takes place during England’s civil war. The game features over sixty weapons and unique kill animations. Game play modes include team based objective play as well as solo pure PVP. Paradox Interactive will be challenging PAX-goers to defend their honor and take on the team at their own game. To take the challenge, find booth#368 and prepare to fight to the death! The Showdown Effect is an upcoming 2.5D sidescrolling game (think Shadow Complex) where players take the role of their favorite action movie clique heroes and duke it out. Look for both War of the Roses and The Showdown Effect this year at PAX East, booth #368! The team is excited to meet you!

    Contemplating every little thing heading on in the election. Even Invoice Maher is type of sick of the randomness of certain few opinions getting thrown about the internet. In video games, men and women turn into more and more more challenging to socialize with, and far more and far more are only anxious with themselves; elevating their perform fashion to that of any normal “griefer” or “troll”. Individuals go on forums, even as modders to video clip games, protected by their publish rely as a measure of importance. They troll, deem who is proper and wrong, and by no means get banned, like one such JorDarkElf from Paradox Interactive forums.

    Is the net shedding reputation with normal individuals previously mentioned the age of 21 upwards to 50 or 60 12 months olds? Are individuals going to come outside the house this summertime far more so than any year preceding in this digital era of ours? Will there be, more individuals at concerts, perhaps, or much more individuals out doing sports?

    And, do you agree or disagree with me? How do you feel about the course the web is taking lately?

    I already know that I cannot delete them ingame. I’ve found a folder called “save games” from the main folder,
    (C:/Program files/paradox interactive/blahbahbalh) but there was no files in there. I’ve also searched all folders from C:/users/*my username*/ but the game appereantly doesn’t have a folder for itself in there.
    Problem solved thanks to colanth =).
    By the way, It’s not exacly appdata/roaming/…
    It’s:

  • josh12rox

    Yo people, I’ve already asked a question similar to this and got not much feedback. So I’ve already got Europa Universalis: Rome (not a huge fan) and Crusader Kings II, I’m after something which will hook me up with hours of gameplay but it isn’t too complicated and complex.
    @John: Thanks for the quick reply and I love Crusader Kings II but I’ve heard it’s a lot different from EU: III and others.

    @Everyone: If any of you could add me on Steam, that’d be brilliant. ajay_x.

    I am giving away a free copy of the game ‘Victoria 2′ from Paradox Interactive.

    Considering everything going on in the election. Even Bill Maher is sort of sick of the randomness of certain few opinions being thrown around the internet. In video games, people become increasingly more difficult to socialize with, and more and more are only concerned with themselves; elevating their play style to that of any typical “griefer” or “troll”. People go on forums, even as modders to video games, protected by their post count as a measure of importance. They troll, deem who is right and wrong, and never get banned, like one such JorDarkElf from Paradox Interactive forums.

    Is the internet losing popularity with normal people above the age of 21 upwards to 50 or 60 year olds? Are people going to come outside this summer more so than any year previous in this digital era of ours? Will there be, more people at concerts, perhaps, or more people out doing sports?

    And, do you agree or disagree with me? How do you feel about the direction the internet is taking lately?

  • nasty1

    Can you name any historical simulation board games or video games that deal with the interwar period of the 1920’s and 30’s?

    All I know of is the expansion “Revolutions” to Paradox Interactive’s “Victoria”, which takes on the whole world from 1920 to 1935 and a card and dice game in which the prelude to WWII can be altered (forgot the name). Are there any more or is this indeed a somewhat obscure period in history gaming?

  • arronwrath

    Hearts of Iron, Victoria, Europa Universal and Crusader Kings for example.

  • hank baseballs

    I have a 12 minute presentation where I have to teach my class on the word and its use. The lat part of the presentation is I have to have an interactive activity with my class.

    Any suggestions on a short activity concerning paradox?

    I was thinking I could have them read a paragraph and find all of the paradoxes… if anybody know s of a paragraph filled with paradoxes that would be great!

    Thank you so much for your help.

  • Jesse

    I’ve been lead to believe that in the strategy games by Paradox Interactive: Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, Victoria: An Empire Under The Sun and Hearts of Iron can all be connected through old save games.

    So for example, from what I understand, you can finish a game of Crusader Kings and then transfer the save game to Europa Universalis where you can continue playing from where you left off in Crusader Kings. At least from how I’ve understood what I’ve read.

    What I really want to know is, is this true? Because I’ve only seen it mentioned on one website, but not referenced anywhere else. If the games do have this feature how does it work?

    Also for the record I read about this on TvTropes, here:
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/CrusaderKings
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/HeartsOfIron
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OldSaveBonus

    I hope this makes sense. Thank you for any answers you may have.
