Even the good ones can go wrong

It’s not often that Wargamer’s Jim Zabek makes some major errors, but I guess E3 brings out the worst in everyone’s fact checking, as his E3 preview of Europa Universalis III makes clear.

The game does not “cover…the Middle Ages”; 1453-1786 is the early modern period. And “Defender of the Faith” was in the previus EU title; it is not an original EU3 contribution to religion in the game.

The preview is otherwise uninteresting except for some new screens, including some gigantic and ugly soldiers.

    The first version also had a fun typo.

    “from the fall of the Ottoman Empire” instead of “from the fall of the Byzantine Empire”
