Hearts of Iron 3: Their Finest Hour Contest

Posted on October 17, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Monty, Broken Joysticks’ official wargaming bulldog, has just secured some copies of the latest HOI 3 expansion, Their Finest Hour, to giveaway to our readers. I understand that his meticulous planning allowed him to succeed in an amphibious landing near Stockholm where, after a visit to the Vasa, he liberated some Steam codes from Paradox Interactive.

We have 7 steam codes for Their Finest Hour and 5 steam codes for The Hearts of Iron 3 Collection (which includes the base game and expansions needed to play the game). Monty also scored two copies of Crusader Kings 2. This sounds like a good excuse for a contest.

One of the new features in their Finest Hour (or at least new to HOI3) is the ability for your commanders to gain traits through combat. In order to enter our contest tell us (in the comments) what trait you deserve and why. For instance you could claim the right to be a Ranger because you are really into Lord of the Rings cosplay. The winners will be announced on Monday. You may see a full list of the leader traits after the jump.Read More


Crusader Kings 2: Sword of Islam DLC Announced

Posted on May 30, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

Paradox Interactive has just announced the Sword of Islam DLC for Crusader Kings 2. The main selling point of this DLC is that, for the first time in the history of the series, you’ll be able to play an Islamic dynasty. Finally, you can experience building up a powerful dynasty (only to see it crushed by the Mongols) from an Islamic perspective. Paradox hasn’t released many details about how the Muslims will play differently than European Christians, but the latest developer diary promises “lots of specific new mechanics for the Muslims, creating a whole new experience for the player, where laws, marriage, holdings, traits, titles and more work entirely different.”

This DLC will come out alongside the 1.06 patch for the game which adds new features like “ an expansion of the map into Mali-Songhay, differentiation on strong and weak claims, new plot,” and a more in-depth combat system. You can watch a trailer for the Sword of Islam DLC after the jump.Read More
