Never mind.  Can't figure out how to post a Youtube video here.

I get the doubtful. I have that when I see game advert vids like that. But not for announcement trailers. That's just how it these days.

  Looks good to me.  I'll buy anything remotely workable that covers muskets and such. Kap-poof!

Already looks fantastic. Really impressed!

Love the period battle map. Though it suggests that the game is going to have set-piece historical battles rather than possibility of battles anywhere on the strategic map (as in Total War or the previous Seven Years War) -?

+1. That looks really good. I love that it doesn't look too complicated to play and it looks like manageable real-time. My hopes have risen considerably!

It does look good. Looks like you can pause it, isn't that a stop button icon, lower right.
