  • Colbert Bump: It seems that with each video he does on a relatively obscure game, it rapidly receives a large amount of attention and purchases from his viewers. Not just one, but two of the highest rated reviews for Kenshi on Steam have references to Sseth; his review of Space Station 13 flooded the servers with new players (referred to by long-time players as the "Ssethtide") despite him advising that they shouldn't do that; his review of Starsector got so much attention that the developers' website was having issues keeping up and Alex (one of the developers) actually tweeted about this event in positive detail; and his review of SYNTHETIK, despite coinciding with the very last day of a sale on the game, still managed to cause enough people to buy it that it broke into the top sellers for that month on Steam. He's acutely aware of it too, to the point where he collaborated with the developer of Underrail to have the game go on sale on Steam and Good Old Games when his review went live.
  • Creator Breakdown: His review of Might And Magic IX starts with "Sooner or later we had to do it, this is it. This is where I start drinking". It goes downhill from there.
  • Recycled Script: Played for Laughs in his review of Paladins, which reuses most of his review of Overwatch but with any differing details very lazily dubbed over.

  • Screwed by the Lawyers: His original review of Heroes of Might and Magic V was demonetized and blocked in 221 countries by 4K Media for using a version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! dub intro, edited only to paste HOMM4 and gachimuchi characters over the YGO ones. Sseth was more confused than mad as to why they would claim it to take all the money the video makes, then also block it in all but a small handful of countries so they wouldn't make any money.
