We've already covered Cities: Skylines user's fixation with road porn, but this masterpiece goes beyond such tawdry titillations.

Cities: Skylines hasn't even been out for a week and already the game's selection of mods is becoming overwhelming. Some of these mods are great, and genuinely add worthwhile new content to the base experience! Most, however, seem to cater towards one thing: road porn.
Video games don't usually get into the Christmas spirit. Which is a shame! So it was nice to see that, upon reinstalling Crusader Kings II yesterday, I ran into this: a new holiday soundtrack to one of the most bloodthirsty games ever made.
And here I was, only just saying how good Crusader Kings II - nominally a strategy game - was at depicting inter-personal relationships. Guess I'm not the only one who digs that aspect of the game, because developers Paradox are now going to double down on it, announcing an expansion that's all about role-playing.
Not even in Europa Universalis IV. Among the weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency and a completely glitched cavalry. A popular mod for the game, called "MEIOU & Taxes" causes this, so use it carefully.
For a few years now, Mount & Blade II developer TaleWorlds has kept a low profile, with the only nugget of news on the upcoming game being a few — admittedly nice-looking — screenshots. Well, there's more news now, but it's not about Mount & Blade II — it's an announcement that the indie studio will disembark from its Paradox-shaped mothership.
If you needed further proof that Crusader Kings II is one of the best-supported, most expansive games of all time, check out this new expansion.
Paradox Development Studios, known for its grand strategy games on PC, is trying its hand at an RPG. A Norse mythology-themed fantasy RPG, specifically, titled Runemaster. There's a short teaser for you above. At the same time, Paradox also announced the fourth entry in their Hearts of Iron strategy game series.
It's OK, Crusader Kings II isn't for everyone. I get that. But I'd like to think we can all at least find common ground and enjoy the game's patch notes, which continue to be the very best.
Hey, remember Leviathan: Warships' smooth jazzy pre-order trailer? Well, the makers of this snazzy little wargame put out a free update that introduces that smooth jazziness to the game itself — by making the trailer's narrator one of the announcers. How'd they reveal the update? With a smooth jazzy trailer, of course!
If you're new to the world of grand strategy games having picked up the gateway drug that is Crusader Kings II, may I suggest you look into this, Paradox's big follow-up game, Europa Universalis IV. It's lacking in Crusader King II's intimacy, but shifts its weight by letting you control just about any faction of people on Earth during 300 years of global expansion and colonisation.
