So, I feel almost a little silly asking this because it says "Install and key code allowed on one machine," but can I install this game on more than one computer, if I uninstall the original install? I'm asking because if you limit me to installing it only ONCE for the $30 I'd be spending, then there is really no reason to purchase it from Best Buy. I can buy it on Steam or a physical version and install it as many times as I want. Answers?

Welcome to the forum and thanks for your post! It's a great question. It's my understanding that the number of times you can download and install the game depends on the publisher, developer or vendor. I did some research and it looks like there is some limit on how many times you can download it, but that if you need more authorizations, you can contact Sega for more.
I see why there is some confusion and to be honest, I'm not sure what it means by "Install and key code allowed on one machine" because the game you purchase is associated with your account. For example, if you download the PC App on one computer, as long as you are not logged in on another machine, you should be able to install the App on the another machine and play. The only thing I can think of is if when you download it on a different PC, the game code has to be activated again. But, as previously stated, it's my understanding that those limitations depend on who made the game and whatever limitations put on by the Digital Rights Management.
You may also want to note that you should be able to put your code into engines similar to the Best Buy PC App.
If you decide to make your purchase, let me know how it goes. If there are any issues, I'm happy to step in.
