Thats a fantastic video but -uh - is it ok for them to give out their key like that? I know Alex can put it into a blacklist next update, but still.

Like you said, Alex can put it on a blacklist later, I think it is good for exposure, kind of like a free weekend type deal.

I'm going to try it, and if I like it, I'll definitely buy it. We'll see how she runs on openSUSE :) This is a genre/style of game I'm unfamiliar with, so Sseth's little 'giveaway' hands me an opportunity to see if I can enjoy this kind of game.

We know, Alex knows. Everybody told us already.

Have you missed the part where Sseth hands out pirated copies of the game he reviews? He does it all the time.

Yeah he's defiantly a chaotic good kinda character.

He's not deliberately trying to get people to pirate, but there isn't exactly a try-before-you-buy system for PC software any more.

As as customer he's great, but even still it's a little screw-y for the people trying to run a legitimate business.

If Alex completely removed DRM the sale figures would stay the same. DRM has never stopped pirates and good games always generate revenue even without DRM.

I love how the website went down for a while, that's the Sseth effect for you.

I really hope the website went down because Alex had significant orders!  That would be great :D

Not going to lie, I wasn't really interested in the game even after the review, but trying it out I'm buying it for myself next time I get paid.

I actually bought the game because the youtube video piqued my interest! (Then again, I used to play Aurora 4X, Freespace and X3, so there's that to consider too).
