The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

I got Crusader Kings 2 in a steam sale today. I REMOVED NORMANS FROM THE PREMISES! DD

1066 start with William just crowned, I'm playing as Morcar, Earl of Northumberland. I married my son off to the King of Norway's daughter. When I led a revolt to install Edgar of Wessex as King, most of the Northern, South Western and Midland Lords joined my cause and removing the foreign stain from the South East wasn't too difficult given my numerical strength at this point and support from the Kingdom of Norway

Pfft, I'd be more impressed if you did it from the invasion start. That does takes more luck than anything else to be far I guess, like William dying.

Picked it up in the sale as well.

I haven't a clue what to do to be honest, started as the Count of Dublin and nothing happened except my son tried to kill me so I locked him up and everyone got annoyed :P

Might just download the Game of Thrones mod and conquer Westeros as Tyrion.

Just try to form the Kingdom of Ireland and see wher it takes you. A few random marriages and such might find you heir to the most suprising of places.

I spent an hour playing as one of the Welsh kings. Had absolutely NO idea of what I was doing lol.

Hannibal, depending on which country you are, you are to build up and wait for WWII to start. Once that happens, the sandbox part comes into play. Otherwise HoI3 is basically a WWII grand strategy simulator.

Is it good? I looked at it some LPs and thought it didn't look like I would have fun with it.

Looking at the price for the collection I might get it. Though I don't like the inability to scourge the Christian scum as a Viking warlord.

Depends on how you like to play games. I bought it but thought it was meh. It was cool cuz it is a kick ass WWII simulator, but the sandbox part of it isn't very, sandbox. Plus the whole warfare management was hard as hell to organize lol. I mainly had that part controlled by the AI, and I just set it objectives.

Edit: Wait, were you talking about HoI3 or CK2?

You're looking at the wrong time frame. You'll want the newest DLC that's coming (come?) out, which takes place sometime in 800 AD.

Saw the CK2 sale on Steam and decided to take the plunge as well, though I decided to go a bit further and purchased the whole collection (minus the most recent DLC). I must confess that the main reason for my purchase was because I wanted to try out the Game of Thrones mod, which I heard to be well done and very enjoyable especially for book fans.

I heard about the DLC.

And Punic I was talking CK2, I have had HOI3 for ages, I never really got into it though, I preferred Vicky II where I could create a United German Communist Republic.

Are we becoming Paradox Heaven?

Haha you could say that, but I think most of us are really just looking for something to keep us occupied until Rome 2 comes out. That and 75% off is a damn good deal.

I love Grand Strat as much as I love TW.

My character, Morcar of Northumberland, kicked arse. He died in 1099. When he died, House Hwicce (his family) ruled all lands North of the Severn/Wash line bar Cumberland, which was a royal domain. I sided with King Edgar against Norman loyalists and he gave me a lot of their land when they were stripped of titles and exiled or executed.

I'm going to start again now I know what I'm doing.

I think I'll start as an Irish petty King and unify Ireland. I will then unify the British Isles and form the De Jure Empire of Britannia.

Why don't we have a Paradox HG yet? I think it's because the Paradox Plaza offical forums/community is so extensive and such a good online community there is no real need for it

I dived into a game of CK2, thinking my prior experience would help me. It didn't I hardly lasted a year.

75% of steam prices isn't quite as good as 75% off in general, but it does seem quite an intriguing game. I'm still at the 'thoroughly bewildered by demo' stage.
posted 31 May 2013 15:40 EDT (US)     122 / 2504  
Tbh, Steam prices are usually less or similar then most places, sale or not. Sale will beat most other copies hands down.

Yeah, Paradox tutorials have never been good. The best way to learn is just dive in and see what goes wrong. Its like DF in that aspect. Apart from that has a terrible interface too.

CK2 and Victoria 2 have comprehensive tutorials, but EU3 and Hearts of Iron 3 were lacking. I still don't get HoI3. CK2 has a steep learning curve and I'm still learning when it comes to the incest and inheritance bit
