Taking The Wraps Off The PPG Update ID

Unboxing videos are still all the rage, and a proper video series that details the contents of a wide variety of Wing Commander products would be awesome. That's why we were excited to stumble across a Privateer Playtesters' Guide being unwrapped for the first time. It's a relatively obscure book, and there's some really useful stuff in there for the Gemini Sector traveler. What kind of commentary or cool trivia might the creator add? As it turns out, the video is completely silent except for the crinkling cellophane of the packaging and sound of turning paper. It's also cocked at a 90 degree angle. So is this just one of those weird goofy clickbait things produced by a content farm? Actually, no again. The guy has only a dozen videos, and they're all done in a similar style. Privateer was the last one he made, and we're glad he did. You do get a digital copy included with the game on GOG, but this is the real thing.
