My Favourite Game Of 2012 Also Has The Absolute Worst DLC

Keep your space operas and fighting things things, my favourite game of 2012 so far has been the wonderfully deep marriage/backstabbing simulator Crusader Kings II.

It’s a shame, then, that the game now has the year’s worst DLC to date. And that’s including a game where you’re being charged for the ending.

On April 17, developers Paradox will release Crusader Kings II: Ruler Designer, an optional add-on that will let you either customise existing rulers or allow the user to create news ones. In other words, it’s a character creation tool. You know, the type everything from FIFA to Skyrim packs in as an essential part of the game.

Here, though, it’s going for $US5. And you don’t even get a fancy 3D model or new set of animations for it. You get to tweak a 2D portrait and move your ruler’s stats sliders around.

  • Yeah but they dont charge full retail for the game, and they already had that “extra shields” pack thing on release. Its a great game, though. Especially considering Paradoxes last release was Sword of the Stars 2: Bug hunt.

    I dont know why you’d bother, given how many kids you end up having.

    The Azura’s wrath thing is a lot worse, at least in theory.

    • I must be one of the very few people who don’t feel completely cheated by the idea of expanding on the experience of Asura’s Wrath.

      I don’t have so much of a problem with it because I genuinely enjoyed the game on so many levels.
