It's time to break out the ritual cutlery again since the bloodthirsty game developers at Paradox Interactive have released a whole new expansion for their critically acclaimed title Europa Universalis IV that's sure to steal a heart or two. “El Dorado,” as the DLC's name suggests, is an expansion that greatly bolsters the experience and detail of the indigenous nations of North and South America as well as increasing the level of interaction for colonial powers looking to plunder the silver and gold rich hills of the New World. Building upon their previous expansions that significantly changed the entire dynamic of colonialization in EUIV through their Colonial Nation mechanic, Paradox has now given the native counterparts something of a unique experience as well.

However, he did not just spring into those commands out of the blue. He also saw action in Europe at the very start of the war, and here we look at his experiences in France leading up to Dunkirk.

So many space missions have launch issues, and Slitherine’s Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager release on iPad was no exception. When initially submitted to Apple the game was rejected on the basis that it referred to a 3rd party – Buzz Aldrin – despite the fact that the said 3rd party had actively contributed to the development process.
