So I got a new game called Victoria 2 and I’ve already wasted countless hours on it. Unlike Skyrim I can play this for hours on end which has led to a few half-marathon sessions. It’s the follow-up to the first Victoria and comes from a long line of similar Paradox games.
Last night I started a game with Transvaal and managed to become a Secondary Power by collecting prestige, which gave me the right to colonize new provinces. I tried playing as Brazil earlier, but I got mowed down by countless anarcho-liberal uprisings, a feature which almost ruined the game for me. I installed the latest patch yesterday which might have corrected the problem of the rebel uprisings, but I haven’t had a chance to try out with other nations than Transvaal.
