    Really looking forward to A Game of Dwarves, Warlock, and Crusader Kings 2. :)

    Man, you guys totally threw netbooks and Serbia under the bus!

    Warlock Master of the Arcane is the one I am most excited about. Elven Legacy was too linear and puzzle oriented for me, this one looks more my style!

    This no private servers stuff is really only a money grab. You don’t need a server to host a game, a standard gaming desktop and a good net connection is more than sufficient.
    The only reason they are considering renting out servers and not allowing anyone to host their own is so they can charge money for the privilege. There is no good reason and the performance issue is a total smoke screen. Shame on Paradox for even contemplating this.

    I agree with you guys about Salem; the design sounds like a recipe for creative griefing. Alongside Eve Online, Dark Souls deserves a mention — PvP is gated by level, so griefers can run through the game without levelling up, acquire late-game gear, and then come back to the early areas to prey on newbies. Of course, vigilantes can do the exact same thing, then lie in wait…

    (If anyone here _is_ playing Dark Souls, this story of counter-griefing is worth a read: http://www.reddit.com/r/darksouls/comments/ouri2/so_a_friend_and_i_decided_to_play_a_little_game/)

    Surely Alucart is a pun on a la carte? And yes, Alucard was made up by the Castlevania people.

    War of The Roses looks spiffing, Salem appears to have some pretty godawful graphics, even if the concept is great.
