I would like see a neutral review from somebody more. Somebody as me.;) Sorry Iain but you are the publisher, even if it was a bad game, we would not see a bad/realistic opinion from you.

However, the stuff watched in the video looks very good, the galactic map and what you can make, it remembers to the old Imperium Galactica I and II, probably the best games from this type. I hope you publish more episodes.

It's a Let's Play by eXplorminate.com, an independent reviewer of 4x games. As far as I know, he will be posting more...

But if the game was not released yet. Clearly you gave him access to the game.

He just applied for the beta-test, as anyone can do :)

did you then give him permission to post a video then?

as i'd guess you must have done or he normally would have been kicked off for breaking the NDA :roll: :wink:

was going to report him when i first saw it tbh, but was beaten to it

Yes, he asked me if he can make a preview, I asked Slitherine and they were positive to it. As far as I know, they are also considering to give it to other reviewers.

Anyone can apply the beta but clearly they do not accept to everybody.

Considering how he needed permission for publish it. You would not be so neutral as you should be. ;) However, it is just a video, there is nothing special at this, everybody could record it as him. But I like what I see.

You're saying if we allow press to look at a game before release they're inherently biassed? So the only option is to prevent press form seeing a game before release, and then to force them to buy it when it is available? You do realise that if it worked like that the entire games press would be redundant over night!

I am very very confused! :)

I say how he is not neutral because for test the game, he needed be accepted as a beta tester and he requested a permission from you. Can we wait a bad opinion from him when very probably if he made it, his beta test access would be canceled? bad opinions can be the true many times.;)

But in fact it is not a preview or review. It is just a video recorded playing the game. There is not comments.

The unique point which it can be judge here, it can be how he has not published a space or ground combat. Why? perhaps because in the beta it is not finished. Just a theory.
