to support a website i've spent hundreds of hours on

#102 Posted by AlisterCat (5396 posts) -

I want to support the site, and I am doing a trial of a month to see how I feel.

#103 Posted by VitaminWaterYum (381 posts) -

There are 174 Bomcasts going by the Bombcast page, and most of them are at least two hours. That's 348 hours, not counting the time I've spent re-listening to bombcasts. And I got all of that for free. Why not give GB some cash?

#104 Posted by Brians (1454 posts) -

because they're worth it.

#105 Posted by MasterOfPenguins_Zell (2093 posts) -

To hopefully let the Bombcast be whole again.

from a chat between myself and a friend:-
 

me : the way I see it, right now I'm investing in their future and paying em for the hard work they've shown so far
 
him :  precisely

I've actually been lurking on this site for about a year, never cared about creating a account just made one for the subscription.  The way i see it this isn't just a news or info site nor is it full of the usual bullshit, this is one of the most entertaining sites out there, totally fucking worth the price.

#108 Posted by sgjackson (527 posts) -

I love GiantBomb, Screened, and Tested, and wanted to show my support. The features are great and I'll probably use most of them, but they're not worth 50 dollars to me.

#109 Posted by Jace (1092 posts) -

Because I've fucking loved these guys since I started caring about video game reviews, back when some were at gamespot. $50, is the least I could do.

#110 Posted by skadbob (230 posts) -
@CitizenKane: All the new and premium features are nice, but I mostly just wanted to support the site.
#111 Posted by FelixLighter (206 posts) -

Honestly, I just want to support the guys anyway that I can.  I went with $5 for now to see how things go.  If things go well and they don't abandon the non-pay members and they continue pushing out the content I love, I will go all in with a full year subscription.

#112 Posted by gingertastic_10 (4141 posts) -

I wanted to support the company. I love Giantbomb and Tested and I wanted to make sure they stuck around for a long, long time. Plus I'll get that phat T-shirt.

 In the year 2000, many many more websites will be on a subscription basis. Sort of like cable TV. I know I'd prefer to watch some of the stuff on HBO to free-to-air nonsense - same principle here.  

#115 Posted by Sin4profit (2868 posts) -

One of that staff members said i'd get a pony if i did.

#116 Posted by jacobgray (64 posts) -

Gotten a whole lot of free, quality entertainment, and wanted to say thanks.  Plus, being able to download things like the endurance runs to watch on the go might mean I'll actually get all the way through them.

#117 Posted by sarahsdad (1037 posts) -

Easier download of videos 
Better Mobile Site 
Needed something to do with some of the money I'm not going to be spending on Xbox Live anymore.

#118 Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -

It was a vein attempt on my part to keep the bombcast together for the non-paying GBers, 
Also I was curious about the new features so I plunked down my $5 to check it out.

#120 Posted by jorojoserojas (257 posts) -

To support these guys, and out of spite for all those people bitching yesterday.

#121 Posted by Scooopex (43 posts) -

Did it to support the GB and Whiskey teams, and also for HD videos

#122 Posted by Helushune (215 posts) -

Because I have paid way more for a lot less entertainment.  I like Whiskey Media and want them to succeed.  Sadly, I can't afford a yearly right now but it looks like it's possible to upgrade in future and will definitely be doing that.    
#123 Posted by Master_Funk (723 posts) -

Because I love giantbomb and I want them to succeed.

#124 Posted by jNerd (2008 posts) -

I think it's a brilliant idea to finally give us a way to directly support GiantBomb. They do so much from inspire to entertain, I'm happy to give back.  
I also really love the Bombcast, I can't wait for the first SplitCast.

#125 Posted by DrPockets000 (2859 posts) -

I'm doing it because I love Whiskey Media and I would die if they had to go away due to lack of funding.

#126 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

i want to support the guys and also the new mobie site is awesome. That shirt was a deal breaker as well

1: I think anyone who wears a T-shirt for a website is a wanker. Straight up. Not to mention that they're cheap. 2. Videos are already really high quality, HD isn't much of a push. 3. Uhh... you're supporting a split bombcast. Not getting rid of it. 4. We're yet to see how good this is. 5. THE SITE HAS NEVER HAD ADVERTS. 6. OK, I'll give you this. Tested and all the other Whiskey site can burn in hell though. "
I hate to sound like some elitist asshole because I have a subscription but seriously dude wtf? Sub if you want to and if you don't you can still enjoy all the content. Looks like some peoples true colours come out when they are faced with a real life decision. 
 
Also to get on topic I really wanted the shirt. The design looks sick and I can't wait to wear it around college. 
#128 Posted by eternitymemory (153 posts) -

I can only get a monthly at the moment, and not for every month either, but since I like WM and what they do, I'm more than willing to throw down what I can.

"Or maybe you just think Whiskey Media/Giant Bomb is so awesome and want to support their amazing website engineering and general shenanigans for the betterment of the Internet and human civilization as a whole?"
This.
 
I would have subscribed even if it was just a way to keep the sites going. The t-shirt(s), mobile site, HD video, etc. are all great perks, but just knowing that our money is going to make the Whiskey Media sites even better is enough incentive for me.
#130 Posted by UncleGramps (30 posts) -

The added features are great, but I gave them my $50 because they have provided me with entertainment, week after week, for free, since 2008.  I consider it a way to say "thank you". 
 
Also, the t-shirt is pretty bitchin'. ;)

Supporting the boys.

#133 Posted by Heartagram (1179 posts) -

I wanted to support something i've used for free and the HD video was a way awesome bonus

#134 Posted by Hershey07 (156 posts) -

T-shirt, and well, I love the GB guys. 

#135 Posted by Rham (2 posts) -
I subscribed because I feel like I need to show my support and pay them back them for the 100's of hours of entertainment they provided me with over the years.
#136 Posted by turbomonkey138 (4950 posts) -

Because i am weak 

#137 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1400 posts) -

Waiting for Paypal support so I can start paying.

#138 Posted by KillerEwok (19 posts) -

I did it to support the GB crew and all of  Whiskey, since I've been on Giant bomb since day 1.

#139 Posted by Wyld (278 posts) -

I couldn't resist

#140 Posted by Milkman (16223 posts) -

Because I spend more time on this site than any other site. Also, I subscribed to GameSpot back in the day, which I believe was $10 a month so it would only make sense to do the same here.

#141 Posted by Elektrobear (19 posts) -

While I welcome the new content, Giant Bomb has provided me with so much free entertainment since the day I discovered the site. As they say, they produce up to 5 hours of video content a week, all of it usually interesting and entertaining. This is close to the same amount of entertainment you get out of a short video game. This again, is 5 hours a week, 52 weeks a year. That's 260 hours a year. 260 hours of entertaining content for 50 dollars. That's a bargain.

I'm looking at this more as supporting the site to make more entertainment. Paying 50 dollars to support the most awesome site on the internet is a steal.

#142 Posted by s7evn (1072 posts) -

Mobile site mostly. I like the work they do so supporting the sites I visit makes sense. 

#143 Posted by General_D23 (1201 posts) -

Spend so much damn time on here, and love Giantbomb, Tested, and Screened. Also, sweet T-Shirt.

#144 Posted by Inf225 (503 posts) -

-T-Shirt
-Live Show
-Medal
 
Its worth it, lol.

#145 Posted by warxsnake (2626 posts) -

because i love gb, screened, tested, and i have money

#146 Posted by Terra1909 (312 posts) -

Love the site. Simple as that.
#147 Posted by FixerofDeath (308 posts) -

I would have, but being 17, and without a job, and Halo Reach coming, There is something I would rather purchase first. 

#148 Posted by Jothel (893 posts) -

Been following them since the gamespot days, they deserve my money after the literally 100s of hours they've kept me entertained

#149 Posted by Crunchman (368 posts) -

I subscribed because not subscribing simply wasn't an option. WHISKEY MEDIA FOR LIFE!

#150 Posted by kalmis (1557 posts) -

I am too old to see some random internet ads. + I really like this site, so why not.
