Pretty cool video with a youtube channel with a decent reach. Slowly getting into the big leagues now :)

Aren't the Beta testers under NDA?

Have you watched the video? It's just footage used on the Slitherine reveal.

PartyElite posted a video in January previewing all of the upcoming 4X strategy games for 2021, and Distant Worlds 2 was absent from the list. I ended up dropping an angry comment in that video haha.

Good to see he's finally gotten around to giving DW2 the exposure it deserves. I do believe PartyElite is the largest YouTuber to cover the game thus far, so it'll most certainly work to garner more attention and spread the word.

He is a great Youtuber. Break the rules and let him post playthroughs, etc..,

No, because I was at work I didn't want to start watching youtube videos on my phone.

If it is just a reaction video to previously released gameplay footage then I don't find that interesting. Glad to hear the game is being promoted by word of mouth on social media.

seems that PartyElite didn't cover dw2 in his upcoming 4x videos for 2021 because there wasn't any concrete information/gameplay to go off of until now, apparently, though it also looks like PartyElite hasn't played any Distant Worlds Universe either because many of those already established features seem to amaze him lol, and also he has no coverage of DWU at all

Absolutely, OnePercent, he's not played DW:U and it's quite obvious by the myriad of mishaps he spewed throughout the video. Off the top of my head, I remember him questioning whether or not resources were officially going to be "physicalized," how countermeasures and target tracking work, and to what extent ground combat would be visualized. In addition, he failed to acknowledge any meaningful differences between DW2 and its predecessor, instead choosing to use Stellaris as a point of reference.

The video was good in the sense that it works to spread the word about our beloved gem of a game, however it really lacked some of the more distinctive improvements people like myself are aware of. Again, a few of many he missed were the changes to how hyperdrives & jumping functions, the lack of playable pirates, no orbiting planets, new resources, more control over resources, firing arcs for ships, the addition of the third dimension... the list goes on.

Either I'm crazy, or he completely flopped the purpose of his video: to emphasize the many quirks and qualities DW2 brings to the table that other strategy games do not. Using DW:U as a baseline would've been a better start. It felt like he was shooting in the dark.

End of nit-picky rant. Good video. Great exposure. Looking forward to more DW2 content/reviews.

Agreed, it appears he never heard of Distant Worlds 1, and only now just realized what a a treasure trove he discovered...

Com on... of course they will be comparing stuff with Stellaris which are the most popular Sci-fi game ever made in terms of sold copies... would be crazy not to do that. As much as I personally thinks that Stellaris is a mere mediocre 4x (Grand-Strategy) game is of no consequence. Even though DW:U is by far a better game this type of exposure is really great for the continuation of 4x games in general and for DW series in particular. People also enjoy many similar games at the same time... I will probably continue to play Stellaris once in a while even though it is not my favourite 4x game even after DW2 is released, maybe not as much.

I don't think the video actualy tells much about if the creator played DW:U or not, I be he actually have played it but just never made any content for it. Or at least know about the game... some people just are put off by lack of graphical eye candy and that is just how things are no matter the quality of the game mechanics. It also might just be that he did not make any content because he did not believe it would get enough views, it is after all a business for many people on Youtube.

The video is made as a comparison to current 4x games and DW:U is an "old" game and not really relevant to the vast majority of new players which are his audience.
