@InternetDetective: 
 
Detective,
 
Justin.tv auto-archives every stream. Granted I've never personally watched any streams that lasted this long on archive -- but I see absolutely no reason why this stream would not be archived like every other stream. I doubt you'll miss out.

I've been a fan of the site for a long time but mainly the bombcast, editorial coverage and videos and haven't had an account before. So for all the fun I've had and will continue to have I felt it was about time we got a chance to support the site. Also, T-shirt and HD videos!

Because I won the Serious Sam HD contest by posting a picture of a Ham with "Serious" written on it.

 

More to the point I figured $50 was worth the 12+ months of content I've devoured for free including paying Vinny and Jeff to play Persona 4 so I didn't have to.


Heaven help you bastards if you screw up the bombcast though.  I am a paying customer now and I demand satisfaction, motherfuckers!

 I wanted to support giantbomb. None of the features really interest me. Very much doubt I will subscribe beyond the first year..

I forked out the moolah because i just love GB and want to support it and HD vids and the shirt are nice additions too.

$60 is not a huge amount of money for a company and service that has provided so much entertainment for so many, many long commutes to and from work. 
 
This is my way of saying thank you.

Plain and simply to support Whiskey Media and the content they produce.   I read Giant Bomb, Tested and Screened almost every day and listen to their podcasts on a weekly basis.  I am more then willing to pay for this entertainment and support the great things that Whiskey is doing.

I've been liking these guys since the Gamespot days. I like their views on gaming, and i feel that these guys deserve my support. I paid 60 dollars today (since i'm based in Europe), and as one guy above wrote. I've spent more money om stupider things in my life.
 
And for the record: Splitting the podcast is a good move imho. It's called incentive - and that's why it splits the community like that.
 
If i had more money and was based in the us, i'd be a major investor in the company. I believe in Giantbomb.

I'm mostly supporting Whiskey Media, but I also like the new mobile site features. Plus, the shirt seems cool.

Considering how many hours of entertainment I've been given from the Endurance Runs and the Bombcast it was a no-brainer. Happy to support my Giant Bombers! 
 
EDIT: Hmm.. just paid for a monthly but don't see a medal on my avatar. Does it not show up for yourself?

TBH i hardly use the forums and dont do many quests etc. But i do watch the videos and i enjoy the bombcast.
 
The reason i paid up for the year is because i want to support these guys (same reason i brought the iphone app).

Just to support them.  I probably won't use any of the niceties, but it's worth paying just to support them.

It's the one website I hit up daily for the content. Everything else I'm fine with an RSS feed.  Podcast alone is worth it. I also love the tested guys.  I'm happy to support them and the t-shirt doesn't hurt.

Of course you can. And i did it by logging out and when i logged again it asked if i wanted to make a multipass and then it asks the type of suscribtion you want.

I'll be subscribing soon. Recently I dropped Comcast cable (still had to keep the internet though) and decided to buy the 4 or 5 shows I watch on Amazon On Demand, it's been nice to vote with my dollar instead of paying for cable and then being bombarded by horrendous commercials. Paying for Giant Bomb just continues this trend, I'd rather throw some money towards people that put out quality content and ingore ads along with other bonuses. 
 
I want the crew to get paid, just because their profession involves entertainment does not mean they owe us anything.

The Whiskey Media sites have given me hundred of hours of entertainment for free, so I'm just happy to be able to support them in some way. That's really the main reason, but I'm also looking forward to using the mobile version and getting that rad t-shirt when this first month runs out and I subscribe to the annual option instead.

If you log in to the site from your mobile browser you should be automatically redirected. 
If not try entering the url m.giantbomb.com manually, while logged in.

I subscribed as I feel that on Giant Bomb alone I have has more than enough entertainment to cover the sub over the last year.  Also I have a load of respect for what all the guys at Whiskey Media are trying to achieve by giving their readers / viewers / listeners something unique.   
  
Keep it up and I will subscribe every year.

I bit the bullet because they're holding the Bombcast for ransom and I plan on unsubscribing as soon as I find out if they got the 5000 subscriptions they wanted.

Wait what?! They're introducing adverts? Thats bullshit, if people want to pay fine. But don't suddenly punish those who don't! "

i think the bombcast is the bomb basicly . and everyone needs to be able to hear the whole thing back to back , not split up.
 
also a whiskey shirt will be sweet.
i appreciate the higher video quality aswell  
 but the biggest chunk of of my subscription is dedicated to having the bombcast remaining free and instant for everyone. just hope we hit 5k
I also love the giant bomb guys , and this was a chance to show some support

@Babble:
I didn't say that, someone quoted my original statement and that is his commentary on what I said. I originally said I'm bummed that silver medalists still have to see ads.  When Someone replied to him they just cut out my original quote and his name.

I've followed the crew since the early days of the Hot Spot. When Jeff was let go I was surprisingly effected,  thus realizing how much that podcast and its crew meant to me. 
 Then I learned of giant bomb and have been hooked ever since on the video and podcast. Didn't join the site untile early this week and love to be able to help out the whiskey crew.  
 
Plus, I can't wait to rock that damn t-shirt!

It's less than I pay for a single game in Australia ($100 for average console game).  Signing up to yearly subscription couldn't have been better value for money.

I want to encourage the continuing existence of a website that is not principally designed to display advertising. Ease of navigation and a pleasing layout is important for actual content consumption. More importantly, I would one day like to see gaming journalists that are not beholden to publishers and developers for their money. Trying to create a membership program is one step towards this possible future.


I am currently a yearly subscriber but I hope to see more content added to the membership program, as I'm not sure if the value proposition is high enough yet. Still, I wanted to show genuine support.

I love Giant Bomb, but ever since they started, I was always worried they'd run out of money or something. Now I don't have to worry about that! Also downloadable HD video and a sweet mobile site are pretty great features, so why not?
