You know, I think I'd like to throw in a comment on these DDs as a whole: These Dev Diaries suuuuck. They're dull, dry, and boring. All of them just seem to boil down the "this does this and this", there's no detail, there's no excitement, there's no hype. Checking back to old Dev Diaries, I think the reason why they suck is because Johan's not a good presenter. He's the least wordy person in the company and has next to no charisma whatsoever. I really wish they'd give the DD duty to someone else at this point, because I'm just not feeling this game at all anymore.

Yeah I have no hype for I:R, pretty much all my Paradox related hype has moved onto TNO because it's rebuilding HoI4 entirely pretty much.

I'll still probably buy Rome when it comes out but I'm not very excited anymore.

This is your time to shine, WRA. Join forces with Nazarene (and any other random modders I don't know about in this thread) and make Victoria 3 happen.

Got back into my Sardinia and Corsica game yesterday, and some fun stuff happened.

First of all, I have no idea what is going on here. It confuses me to no end.

But Europe's kind of peripheral right now. I'm much more interested in Americana. And subverting Kentish Africa. Because Kent can suck it.

The best part is that Cornwall is just that bit of Argentina and Bermuda. Kent completely kicked them off Britain. Same thing happened with Sweden actually, Denmark blobbed up north and now Sweden is just a couple of islands in the Caribbean.
