Every game of stellaris is basically the same. Theirs no real room for making your own story or experience. It's somehow vast while also being hollow. I might just be annoyed from buying all the DLC like a buffon, though.
There isn't in any Paradox game but CK2 really though, is there?

EU Rome is 11 years old. It is actually a really fun game if you can get past the dated bullshit. There's a lot of unique mechanics, specifically for Rome, Carthage, and the Hellenic factions that are never reused in any later Paradox games. For instance, Rome has a really, REALLY detailed Senate mechanic where you have to balance the factions against one another, and then you have to balance the Senate factions with army generals, because if a Senate faction doesn't have equal representation among military leadership, they will revolt. Units also aren't interchangeable, because over time units will develop loyalty to their specific general instead of Rome, and will revolt if you remove their general from command or try to move them to a new army.

Like I said, a lot of really really interesting and detailed mechanics that have just never been used since.
which is why im pretty exited for this new entry. most of the mechanics from eu rome are making a comeback we'll see on release.

Yeah. It's looking like they really pushed the envelope on this one in terms of how they handled the Diadochi, and I'm intrigued what Paradox is going to add. Likely extra stuff for the 'barbarians' of various areas later on down the line, maybe some china interaction, maybe a timeline extension towards the Third Century crisis, hell, maybe more of East Africa on the map.

Stellaris is pretty good now but I only started playing it like a year and a half after release. I take it it was completely shit before the DLC?
The DLC isnt that important, they reworked the game 2 times till it was good.


This game will probably filled to the brim with DLC
There will be DLC every 6 months or so. but i dont see a problem with that, keeps the game fresh and they patch stuff all the time.

It's only a problem when it's stuff that should have been in the game in the first place and everything ends up balanced around being present, like CK2's retinues.

So i preordered it to get the bonus, ask me a week after release about how the game is.
I have plenty of hours in other Paradox games so i should have a pretty good feeling for the game after a week.
(also im not a games journalist, so i dont totaly suck at gaming).
