I had always planned on getting a paid membership because I love the site and appreciate all of the content they've given me thus far. I want to support the people behind this site because over the years I've really enjoyed what they do. That being said, I am really bummed to hear about the Bombcast issue. As I said, I always planned on paying but if I weren't- that shit would have made it mandatory. I must have my podcasts they're what keep me going through the work week.
Would like to do a yearly account but I just flat-out don't have $50 to dispose of at the moment. Ok maaayyybe. Depends on the shirt.
I definitely use the site enough to warrant paying for a membership. Whiskey Media is a great bunch of people and it'd be awful for them to not be able to put out bigger and better content in the future. It really depends when my card gets charged, because if it's at the end of the year then I'd be able to pay, but during the year is a dit dicey sometimes (I get billed for Xbox Live in October and that sometimes catches me off guard).
If I had any interest in HD video I'd be a user on gametrailers right now. So far the only compelling thing is that I get the full podcast as opposed to the 1/2 of a pod cast (which is bullshit, and Ryan pulling the "we're doing this to survive" line is so fucking slimy) and personally I'd rather not pay for something that is free on other subscription based websites. Hell even gamespots live show is watchable by anyone, this whole thing seems like a complete miscalculation of GBs value. So I'm currently in the No camp.
I'm in, but they are shooting themselves in the foot splitting up this podcast. I've yet to see a soul that is pumped in any way for that. I have no problem handing Whiskey 50 dollars. Giant Bomb is a vidya game site. Every member of this site has had their heart broken by one bad game or another. That was fifty dollars wasted. This, my friends, is where that fifty should have gone.
No because I'm a child and demand everything for FREE! Whaaaa you have to wait a week to hear half the bombcast then i wont get to use the staffs inside jokes on the forums in a timely manner so everyone knows how cool I am. boooohoooo! how can you split your userbase who takes and takes and takes without giving anything in return. You guys have fucking sold out by wanting a small fee for creating some of the best content on the internets with little return for your time and efforts ;(;(;(. Can't believe you guys would do this to me! now i have to cancel one of my numerous pornographic subscriptions to pay for extra content, I might as well just kill myself to get away from this clusterfuck.
no but really I'm in for the yearly dude.
" Judging from this poll it would appear that the splitting of the Bombcast isn't bothering everyone. "Looking at it now, I'd say it's bothering about half the people who voted!
