So, is Argos Naval Yard digital distribution only at the moment?

/me is old-fashioned and prefers to have physical media to abuse...

Yep, digital only. It will probably stay this way, so I had to go over my own mental brakes and buy it at GamersGate. With another copy of Ultimate collection (SotS+BoB+AMoC) since it was 15EUR for the lot.  :P

I don't like DL-only stuff either, but I find myself doing it more and more.  Insidious stuff.

Do they at least allow you to make backup copies of the games you purchase? how does it work in the case of an uninstall and then wanting to reinstall?

Depends on where you get it from, but you could always burn the install file to a CD/DVD, I imagine?

With Gamersgate you download the file and you're given the installation key so I can't see what the issue would be with backing up your purchase and making a note of your CD key.

On gog.com they remove some games after a certain period from their catalogue, but they still have it available to download for those folks who've purchased it.

I'd strongly suggest making backups though in case someone "pulls an Amazon" though! That's some stupid shit right there.
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

The real issue is those buggers with "online activation" crap - meaning they go out of business, your game goes poof. Thankfully Kerberos has way more clue than that. :P

True. No on-line registration needed. And you can choose not to delete installation files after download, so you can burn them.
