True about Dastactic; but that second video is kind of adorably neat!  O0
Can't wait to buy the game.  Love the voice and accent in that second video.

New video from her yesterday continuing the series from the first ep linked above.

ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I've tried guessing the woman's (from the 2nd YouTube video I linked) origin from her accent, but alas I am not an expert.
At best it sounds to me like she might come from a Romanesque-language speaking country.

I had to google, I'll admit.

Czech makes sense; I couldn't for the life of me place her accent either. Sometimes it sounded French, sometimes German, sometimes Slavic... Good English, tho!

I actually first stumbled across her about a month ago when she did a preview video of the upcoming fantasy 4x Godking: Master of Rituals (currently in EA).  Glad to see she's covering this one as well.

Considering Papers Please was pretty popular and well known, I don't see why you believe so few would get this reference.
