So Paradox is making a game about "real-time squad-based RTS action, global research and diplomacy map. And it is set in a near-future world of global mega-corporations".

Please to be telling me more.

I quite enjoy the fact that it was named 'Cartel' (as in "not Syndicate but..."). What other options were considered? Clearly it could also have been 'Trust', 'Combine' or even 'Conglomerate' :p

Or go exotic and "Keiretsu" and "Chaebol" could be considered. ;)

You could have called yourself Ochsenfrosch for extra points:D

I'm looking forward to this, even though I played Syndicate 2 more then the first one, and Syndicate 1 being better.

This quote from the interview made my day: "The “feel” of the game is based in that 1980s concept of the mega-corps: OmniCorp in Robocop, for example. The giant corporation that is all-encompassing and evil, but thinks it is doing humanity a favour."

Oh yes, thank you Paradox! Where can I pre-order this game?

Can we expect a NotX-Com game after Cartel? Please? :D
