Crusader kings bitches

For my first little review/recomendation I'm gong to go with Crusader Kings, made by paradox studios


Now the majority of people here you probably have no clue what this game is, I'll give you the rundown. It's a grand strategy game where you play as a feudal european nation in between December 26, 1066 and December 30, 1452.  At the start of the game you choose to become a count(rules over one provence), a duke(rules over a couple counts), or a king(rules over several dukes.) This game is very very open and not linear at all, you choose what you get to do and create funny stories of your exploits.

In short you crusade, think up arching overcomplicated plans for killing your king and taking his place, and fuck bitches.

Like all paradox games this one has a huge learning curve, and no tutorial in it whatsoever, that is why I highly recomend this wiki right here  

http://crusaderkings.wikia.com/wiki/Crusader_Kings_Wiki

It really helped me start the game and get into it. 

Speaking of me would you like to know about the current game i'm playing? Of course you do, after all I am the famous Rugged Lemming. Right now I'm playing as the goddamn Prince of Crete, I'm plotting to kill my wife's father so I can inherit his lands and money.  I am also slowly taking over africa, and hope to kill all the filthy heathens who live there, pic related.
That white southern Greece bit is my father in laws land, I'm going to murder him so hard.


I highly recommend this game for anyone who is a fan of other grand strategy games, although if you are new to the genre Crusader kings will seem a bit complicated, but again just look at that wiki and you'll figure it out in no time.

That's it for this recommendation/review thing, until next time

  7. Hmm... seems like a simpler version of the Total War series...

    I think I'll stick with that, but interesting to see some cool indie games.

  8. Agreed with Fuzzy-looks a bit like Total War, but it's cool to see some nice development.

  9. I have to disagree with you there, Crusader kings and other games made by paradox are much more complex than the Total war series, infact Total war is casual compared to the games made by paradox.
