Sweet.... Is Matrix going to carry this title? I would much rather by from Matrix. I don't much care for other company's DRM stuff.

Almost 100% certain they won't, since Paradox owns AGEOD now.

Yes, December of 2009, they acquired Aegod.

Jim Cobb has written a preview of Pride of Nations. It was published on the Armchair General website yesterday: Link

If I wasn’t so busy playing Field of Glory and WitP:AE I’d probably give the PoN demo a try.

Gave this a go the map lags terribly. There's a couple of bugs with random ethnic groups being in places they shouldn't but apparently this is fixed in the upcoming full game release. It needs some optimization.

The interface is too "busy" for my taste.....but that might change, after all I really despised the X-com demo the 1st time I played it and it became one of my favorite games.

Initial impressions report that, unlike Victoria, you have to do things youself.
Don't know if this is good or bad for players.  For me, I guess I just need to try it out.

If you disable "Limit Map Loading" in the options, that should solve the lag problem.

I was playing around with the settings and figured this out It really does speed up the game I meant to post that here but got sidetracked.

I hope they'll stick to their promise to have it available on "all major download portals".

A very apt description for steam selection.

Please no more steam debate needed.

The game is very good. Only the map grafics could use more love no doubt. I got a review version from paradox and did a review in german language yesterday: http://www.7idgaming.de/content.php?89-Paradox-Interactive-Review-Pride-of-Nations

I have no problem with the map, but I REALLY wish Paradox France (no such thing as AGEOD now) would hire somebody with a better command of written English to proofread game and manual. It takes away from my immersion, and it's so easy to solve.

I consider the economy model as rather underwhelming. Was hoping for something like Victoria I.

This nonwithstanding I consider Pride of Nation to be one of the very few sophisticated historical strategy games on a GLOBAL scale. So far I put some hours in - and barely scratched the surface.

I'd wish Matrix also could sell it just to make PON more popular.

So far I like PoN far more than Vic 1 (never touched Vic 2). Esp the economic model makes more sence imo.

I like the combat system. It's AGEOD's tried-and-tested model. The colonial system is also very interesting: you get tons and tons of options for exploring the blanks on the maps (interior of Africa, to pick an obvious example) and taking over areas for colonization.

I like it better than Victoria so far.

Another very good thing is that this is a proper turn-based game, not the standard Paradox continuous nonsense.
