I don't really care if there is none because i like to support this site because its AWSOME!

@XxRANGAxX: 
  • The site will be formatted for mobile if you go to m.giantbomb.com (the main reason I'm considering the investment.)
  • You'll get access to the Whiskey Media Happy Hour
  • HD Video downloads

@zegolf: Don't quote me on this, and I think I might be wrong, but  think they are still figuring out something special to the Giant Bombcast. A video Bombcast will be with the 50 bucks a year alone.

@Stealthmaster86: Yeah, it sounds like they're going to be constantly adding more and more content to, not only GB, but also to the rest of the Whiskey Media sites.  Every day gets tougher and tougher to keep from "donating."

As a UK resident, much of the stuff is hard to reason with, since my connection sucks, i don't need high-quality video, and my timezone is all effed up with regards to everything in which they involve users . However, once something tangible happens, I will be signing up.

@zegolf: Trust me, if I had the money I would do it in an instant. This is one of the BEST websites around and I want to support them.

@Stealthmaster86: No, Jeff has said this will not happen. 
 
We're supposed to get private game servers but I'm not sure whats up with those at the moment.

Same - still, I appreciate the HD vids and downloads as my connection is OK and the prospect of a video Bombcast is just too good to pass up on, surely?

You're a fucking idiot for giving away money without even knowing what you're getting.

@Vitor: Don't call me surely.

Well he mainly just wanted to support the site, y'know. And now he wants to know the details of what he gets in the membership.
 
 Don't have to be so rude.

Same here, man. Like exactly the same. The Happy Hour's archived, and the mobile site is unexpectedly awesome and useful - read the Fable 3 review while eating my breakfast in the pub this morning.
 
Also, got my t shirt this morning. It's nice.

A fuzzy feeling in your tummy that you are helping the site and getting to watch the Friday show.

Really? I'd have to go with Ryan, simply because I imagine him having a very hard grip. Wait, this is silver level, right? I think I heard something about gold level subscribers getting blowjobs. Any truth to that?

I didn't realise one of the benefits was the ability to make pointless threads like this.

or hes supporting a website so they don't have to resort to more advertising and can just focus on making great content
#22 Posted by zegolf (224 posts) -
@PaulM: But aren't they still going to be running ads, even on the paid version of the site?
#23 Edited by MattyFTM (14393 posts) -

For the subscription you get:

  • Access to the mobile site
  • HD Videos
  • Video Downloads
  • The Happy Hour live show (and the archived version if you're unable to watch it live)
  • A warm fuzzy feeling inside knowing that you've helped support an awesome website
  • No adverts (yearly subscription only)
  • An awesome T-shirt (yearly subscription only)
 
And coming at some point in the future once they figure out specifics of how to do it:
  • Access to servers for certain PC games
  • An video download RSS feed

@zegolf:  I don't know about you because i live in canada and i think the ads are difrent in the states but i rarely see any ads and i think the level of advertising that is going on now is fine its still head and shoulders above the rest of the internet
#25 Posted by zegolf (224 posts) -
@PaulM: Oh, yeah, I totally have no problem with any ads that have ever been run on this site.  It's not like IGN or Destructoid where the website IS the advertisement.

The Live show is worth the money on it's own.

@XxRANGAxX also someone will call you a fucking idiot for believing in a donation. All those people who pay fifty dollars for one pbs tote bag? Fucking tools!
#28 Posted by Burns098356GX (1366 posts) -

Pretty much nothing.
A mobile site? Whopdeedoo. They have a iphone/ipodtouch app for that (but I noticed they've disabled the ability to watch videos on it, thanks for telling us nothing was changing with the subscriptions). HD video? Other sites offer that for free. Happy Hour? You want to pay 50$ a year for that?

#29 Posted by TheSilentTruth (1120 posts) -

Just upgraded; mainly did it to support Whiskey.

#30 Posted by XxRANGAxX (226 posts) -
@beej:  wait hang on are you calling me a fucking idiot for supporting the site because as i can see your a yearly supporter too
#31 Posted by XxRANGAxX (226 posts) -
@beej:  hang on, sorry i think i misunderstood, i just read that dudes comment when he call me a fucking idiot, now i think i understand what you are saying
#32 Posted by beej (1674 posts) -
@XxRANGAxX:  There you go! Yeah I was making a joke.
#33 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I can be banned just like an individual not subscribed. Ps and Qs. And push the boundaries. Push... but be pleasant about it.

#34 Posted by beej (1674 posts) -
@Claude:  what? do you mean for I to be a placeholder for all of the subscribers to place themselves into or did someone mention you?
