I was bored so I decided it was about as right of a time as ever to become a premium member of Giantbomb, but I was trying to save money because I just got paid this week and like I spent half of it already before I bought this. Now it is time to break out the ketchup sandwiches.

You've ultimately saved money, assuming you were going to be monthly for a year, which you very well might not have been. Oh well, at least you don't have to worry about that possible expense for another year. Oh, and enjoy the premium content!

I am excited to watch unprofessional fridays because it reminds me of 2010's end of the year show where they just played a bunch of random old games for 8 hours

That's good cause with the rate people keep sending in their trash old games in I'm betting a lot of the premium content will be stuff about random old games.

Well the site's not lacking for existing content. So work your way through that over the next year, instead of the next month.

Spoiler: there will never be another unprofessional Friday again ( unprofessional of them, I know )

They still do those. At the end of last year they played a bunch of Super Famicom (and famicom as well maybe?) games.

Check out Random PC Games in the Subscriber tab. All will be well.

At least you'll have some good karma.

Maybe one day I will become a premium.

That's how I got last years subscription. Didn't realize I was clicking the yearly. Was worth every penny.

Too bad the money goes to CBS, to line the pockets of those Ceo's with gold encrusted benjamins. Support the conglomerates!

I drank enough last night to purchase another year subscription. I don't know why I did it really. The live show pushed me over the top I guess.

#17 Posted by BillyTheKid (484 posts) -

Well now you get too watch all that elusive premium stuff for a year so that is good. And you are saving money too.

#18 Posted by GalacticPunt (1026 posts) -

Well, enjoy the backlog of Random PC games and Load Our Last Saves. There's some amazing stuff to catch up on.

I'm sorry that money's going to be tight in the short term. There are ways to improve that. You don't have a strong gag reflex, right?

I'd bet that CBS funds Giant Bomb with more money for things like salaries/equipment than the site makes a year on subscriptions.. so.. I don't really know what you're going for here.

You're in it now, for good, lady.

Just watch the Phantasmagoria Random PC Game and be content with the world.

How many subs are they up to now? 10k? yeah, that isn't even going to cover salaries when you take out the overhead.

If you don't want to fund big corporations you are going to have to live in a monastery - that or a compound in Utah (but even then, who do you think makes your assault rifles?).

If you are really hurting then msg Dave (@enemykite) on twitter and he should be able to sort you out. He has in similar cases before now.
