Win a Copy of GalCiv 3 by Helping Me Improve my Videos! [Closed]

Win a Copy of This!

Winner!!! Thanks to Buci201 for their detailed and cut-to-the-bone advice on my video of GalCiv III! For providing excellent advice, and the one that hit me the most, they win the steam key for GalCiv III! YAY! But hey, don’t stress, everyone who entered will get a key for SOMETHIN’, as I have spares lying around. I want to thank everyone who entered the contest and for the great advice! I will try to take as much as I can of it to heart given the time constraints I typically have.


Hey folks, I happen to have an extra Steam key for Galactic Civilizations III, so I would love to give it to one lucky winner of this latest contest! In this contest, I’m asking you to help me out a bit, so here’s how to enter:

  1. Subscribe to my YouTube channel (if you’ve not already).
  2. Watch a video on my channel (any video you wish).
  3. Leave a comment in the video with constructive criticism as to what you did and didn’t like. Please be detailed and constructive, otherwise your entry won’t count. ;)
  4. In the comments below, leave a comment with your YouTube name and a link to which video on which you left a comment. That way I’ll have an email address to associate with the comment. :)

On May 14th, the release date of the game, I’ll chose one person who left feedback as the winner. How will I choose? Welp, I wanna choose by merit, so I’m hoping to get really great feedback. The person with most useful/constructive/awesome feedback I get will win the game. If you want more chances to win, leave feedback on multiple videos! ;)

Now I know this comment seems like a bit of work, and it is, but what I’m hoping is that by your spending a little bit of time to try and help me improve my videos, everyone ultimately will benefit by me making better videos. :)

So critique away my friends, and good luck!

  1. That’s fucked up, man. I’m 90% sure I know where you got that key from and that is NOT how you’re supposed to use it. You’ve been reported.

  2. I redact my complaint. I was in the wrong here and I apologize. For the record, it still seems like a skeevy thing to do to me but it’s been cleared so… I’ve got nothing.

    1. Hey, might I ask what seems skeevy about it? That’s the last thing I want. I figured since I have the extra key and had permission to use it in a giveaway, I should try to indeed give it away, but I tried to come up with a novel way to do it.

        1. Ohhhhhh, I hope it’s clear I’m not selling this. I already had a copy of the game from when we had a developer on the podcast a while back. When their PR person sent me another key, I specifically asked if I could use it for a giveaway. I would never sell this stuff.

          1. I didn’t mean to imply that you did. RKade’s comment just made me think it might have been inspired by the article (which in itself is simply an interesting read).

  3. Be cheerful and sharp when you make commentaries about the game you test, i watched Let’s Play AI War – Entry 1 – Learning the Ropes… , mainly because i want to start playing it, other than that, i dont know, try subtle jokes in the rest…all good

  4. I posted on your new AI War video, (one of my favorite games). Subscribed too, I thought I had already but I guess I always just searched for you direct without thinking about it. Keep up the great videos and thanks for the contest. Oh and my YouTube name is mlwhitt.

  5. As Benjamin Sloniker, I subscribed and commented on this video: I’m really curious about this game.

    As a general comment, I suggest having fewer games that you’re playing at once, so we can watch footage from a specific game we’re interested in without waiting a couple of weeks between relevant episodes. (Also, if you’re anything like me, it’ll make it easier to remember what you’re doing while you play! Learned THAT the hard way.)

    Good luck with your channel and other endeavors!

        1. Just wanted to say I think role-playing in a 4x game makes it a lot more enjoyable to watch.
          I haven’t seen all your distant worlds videos but that series seems perfect for that kinda thing as well.

  6. I commented on your “Galactic Civilizations III Preview – The Wrath of the Badasses” video (
    YouTube name is Buci210. My comment became pretty long, covered some things in it. Hope you don’t mind. :)
    Thanks if considering me for the giveaway.

    1. Got it, thanks so much for your entry and your kind words, and welcome to the comments! :)

  7. Hello there! Your site is awesome, I’ve been a longtime reader and I really appreciate your covering so many space games! Longtime Klingon Academy fanatic so have been watching those videos with great enjoyment. Commented on your GalCiv III video here: under the name Daniel Handlin.
