Hearts of Iron 3: Semper Fi Summary
EA's Humble Origin Bundle drew to a close with a whopping $10.5 million raised for charitable causes, which included the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and more.
Over 2.1 million bundles sold. Now Paradox Interactive are announcing the Humble Paradox Bundle "will go live today," from 8 p.m. CEST (11 a.m. PDT). $125 gets you everything.
Paradox Interactive is celebrating the 500,000 registered user milestone for their online community, and each and every one of those registered gets a free copy of Europa Universalis III.
They also kick open the doors to the Paradox Webshop, with their titles as Steam digital downloads with 55% off. They say eventually "all our titles will be offered" with other goodies.
Grand strategy fans Paradox Interactive have fired up the website for Hearts of Iron The Card Game, which is free-to-play in the browser. Starter pack offered.
From now until October 17th, new players to the game get a special starter pack for nothing. We choose between the Axis, Allies, or Comintern with 140 cards.
Fredrik Wester, Paradox Interactive CEO, has claimed it a "release" to not be reliant on retailer sales for their games, which are now "like a bonus".
He notes we "don't really need" retail chains any more, which have "not been good" for the industry - stifling creativity. It's "really relieving" to speak about it.
Paradox Interactive's first feature to their new Paradox Connect will be achievements to reward "great feats" in their games, with beta this winter.
Connect is designed to integrate with the "central hub" for all Paradox's online activities, their community forums. It'll support Facebook and Twitter.
