Introduction
An Heir Is Born
Crusader Kings III is the newest generation of Paradox Development Studio’s beloved medieval role-playing grand strategy game. Expand and improve your realm, whether a mighty kingdom or modest county. Use marriage, diplomacy and war to increase your power and prestige in a meticulously detailed map that stretches from Spain to India, Scandinavia to Central Africa.

But uneasy lies the head that wears a crown! Your cunning is your greatest weapon, and intelligence is the key to all successful strategy. Guard your life and the future of your dynasty, because enemies foreign and domestic envy your status. Engage in espionage, join political factions, punish heretics or use assassins to make sure your throne passes safely to the next generation.

Nice try, but you know you're going to buy it.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

I bought the first one and could never get the hang of it. I bought the second one because "new!" and could never get the hang of it. Come to think of it, yeah I probably will buy the third one.

I'll be interested to see what the differences are between CK2 and CK3.  If I don't think there is anything significant, then I will wait awhile to pick it up.

I agree on waiting. I still haven't picked up Imperator: Rome. I can wait until it's 50% or more off.

The screenshots look cool, but I tend not to buy most computer games until they go on sale anymore. I only just picked up TW: Warhammer and Warhammer II this weekend.

I did like CK2.

Yeah if this is like every other Paradox grand strategy game. You might as well mark your calendar for five years from now and save up the $20 to by the entire collection after they pumped out all of the numerous DLCs.

OMG I'm turning into an old curmudgeon! Bob does the old man urge to rant and rave about everything lessen with the passage of time?
