Exclamation Rock Paper Shotgun!

Right now, Approaching Infinity is the top story / front page of Rock Paper Shotgun, an influential online PC magazine
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015...ace-roguelike/

It is a favorable review, but all the comments are about price and DRM.

Please please please, all you lovers of the game, please take a minute and post a nice comment over there. I know $40 seemed steep to some of you at first, but then you've come to love the game. It would mean a lot.

Thanks in advance,
bob

Well, I can't say anything about that price as I had gotten it for less (one of the Kickstarter people here) and generally I don't buy games for that much; mostly because the only games that cost this much are MMO stuff or FPS games and I don't touch either kinds outside of some exceptions, or fighting games which I don't touch ever.

That being said, while I don't like DRM in any form, the one in this game isn't all that bad, what with requiring a one-time connection and it not actually being a one-install-only-and-then-go-away which is what some companies go for for some inane reason.

Hmm, yeah, AI deserves a wider audience and i DO love the game still, after many hours of play but theres no way around the fact that its too expensive and the limited activation drm is a slap in the face for all niche gamers that are willing to pay that much money for the game.
