The convention is taking place right now in NYC. PC Gamer is supposed to be covering it live, but i guess the site is hammered because it isn't working for me:
http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/01/20/pa...ering-it-live/

There are also Tweeter updates : http://twitter.com/search?q=%23pdxconvention

Mount and Blade: With Fire & Sword

Due out sometime in the first quarter of 2011, With Fire & Sword will add new elements to the game franchise such as firearms (muskets and pistols) and the new Captain multiplayer mode which will let up to 16 players control a squad of soldiers. Look for seven new multiplayer maps, new castle siege features and multiple endings for the game's single player mode in this new game.

http://news.bigdownload.com/2011/01/...nno/#continued

Hearts of Iron 3: For The Motherland.

Edit: Got the PC Gamer page up:

There are 15 new PC games being covered today that include: Magicka, Cities in Motion, Defenders of Ardania, Pride of Nations, Supreme Ruler Cold War, Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter, King Arthur 2, Magna Mundi, Navar War: Arctic Circle, Crusader Kings 2, Pirates of the Black Cover, Hearts of Iron, Dreamlords Resurrection, Salem, and Gettysburg.

Of those, Gettysburg, Pirates of the Black Cove, and Salem are brand new announcements

Fredrik West, the company CEO, is up front talking through the history of the company, and the things people have said to me over the years. In 2001, people said hardcore was dying, but Europa Universalis 2 sold 250,000 copies. In 2003, he was told that the PC was dying, but since then the company’s revenue is up 1000%.

Other important stuff from Frederick Wester’s (CEO) quick opening talk: Paradox’s 2010 Gross Revenue +45% from previous year / profit up 300% year-over-year. Quoted Gamestop executive that said in 2008 that digital distribution was 10 years away, compared it to a quote from a European patent office that they were going to close because “everything has been invented.” Oh, and 70% of Paradox’s revenue is digital. Wow.

Salem: Free-to-play MMORPG. “light-hearted gothic setting with a charming and cute art-style.” 2011.

Gettysburg: Armored Warfare : Free-to-play RTS\FPS hybrid. Alternate universe.

Hearts of Iron III : For The Motherland :

goal with the expansion: a deeper political system, coups, axis vs. allies vs. comintern (who’s that?). They also want you to be able to play through a game in a single evening.

Basically, the PC Gamer article has all the information about all the games so check it out.

Pirates of the Black Cover = RTS pirate game. Interest piqued.

Salem sounds neat. A very different take on the F2P MMO.

It doesn't quite save all economic factors in the file, so after a load, the economy crashes like a rock.

Is Magna Mundi somehow related to the EU3 mod? I haven't kept up with it and I really should invest more time in going through the Paradox forums.

Huh, never noticed that.

Does that only happen for liberal democracies? Or is it just noticeable more in that system? I'm usually either socialist, state capitalist or communist, so maybe that's what my economy doesn't crash that much, even though the resources were set to 0 or something.

Bad bug

What the? How the fuck can someone NOT know what Comintern is? I mean even if you hadn't heared of the term before, it's obvious from the context!

Awesome, coups would be fantastic! Some AI tweaks would be welcome too.

M&B F&S, Definitely will pick up. My 2nd favorite title of the year.

In general, I'll at least be trying out half of what they announce today. With 2, for sure buys. It's also wonderful to see them raking in the cash <3

I find this description, paired with this title and the fact that it apparently is all about the permadeath, to be inordinately delightful.

Salem sounds that it will be an MMO for me. The permadeath thing can bring great tension to the world.

M&B and Hearts of Iron expansions (and maybe the card game) will be mine. Gettysburg and Magicka are on my radar. <3 Paradox.

I'm pretty psyched just knowing that one of the storylines is about the 30 Years' War.

For the last 10 years I would be excited about this, but I'm still waiting for the last couple of PI games I bought to be made into working games that improve on their predecessors. Being able to play HoI3 in an evening like I used to with HoI2 certainly sounds good at least.

I'd like to think so but then there was a thread recently that basically involved not knowing what Comintern was.
