So? What's your reason? Why haven't you joined the paid membership yet?

#2 Posted by DriveupLife (919 posts) -

I am subscribed bro why you all up in my grill?

#3 Edited by ConfusedOwl (963 posts) -

I have no money.

Pay money to watch a grown man in his underwear talking about video games? Yah right

#6 Posted by jgf (394 posts) -

I've spent money for things far worse :D

I spent all my money on the John Drake Tracker. Oh nooooooo!

I could get like 10 hookers for the yearly.

Are those sub only videos worth watching?

#11 Posted by OfficeGamer (1087 posts) -

this website has some funny videos and entertaining message boards but nothing worth 50 bucks a year.. hell Xbox Live isn't worth that, you want me to pay so I can watch some exclusive Giant Bomb staff videos? I can live without those, I got things to do :)

#12 Posted by Jams (2966 posts) -

I'll subscribe when the fire Patrick and hire Sleazy E to replace him.

#13 Posted by D_Bones (372 posts) -

I haven't decided if it makes sense yet. As far as TNT goes with the exception of the XCOM ones I don't really care. Never seen jar time so I guess I could be missing out. And unprofessional Fridays seems pretty basic as well. The other premium videos seem almost rare and the only one i'd be really into is breaking brad cause chievos. I love this site but those videos don't seem worth fifty to me. sorry?

I mainly do it because i want to support the site. The exclusive content is not important for me.

Is there actual interaction with the GB guys when you're subbed? From the podcasts it sounds like they read/post on Neogaf most of the time.

Been a faithful sub for 2 years, back off duder!

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there she called my name
And I didn't even hear it, and then she started screaming: MIKE! MIKE!

And I go:What, what's the matter?
And she goes:What's the matter with you?
I go:There's nothing wrong mom.
And she goes: Don't tell me that, you're on drugs!
And I go: No mom I'm not on drugs I'm okay, I was just thinking you know, why don't you get me a Pepsi.
And she goes: NO you're on drugs!
I go: Mom I'm okay, I'm just thinking.
She goes: No you're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't act that way!
I go: Mom just give me a Pepsi, please
All I want is a Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me.
Just a Pepsi.

What? No. It'd be kind of shitty if they only interacted with paying members.

You can interact with them the same way regardless. Either say something that sparks their interest, send them a PM, or Tweet at them. Or go to a convention they're at.

I rarely even watch the free videos and I'm sure I'll rarely watch the sub ones if I subscribe.

My husband is the subscriber, I just get the sweet, sweet benefits from him. What I mean is, I got the Flight Club T-shirt, and my life is now complete.

I can't make any purchases from inside the Lang Zone

#26 Posted by SquirrelCheese (13 posts) -

I just signed up last night. Had a long stare at my Credit Card before doing it. But my rationale was that if my sub gets them to produce even a little more content, it's worth it

@fattony12000: You have got to be the biggest spam poster round these parts :P

I did. But now I don't

Mostly because lolololololol

Subscribes. Subscribed. ...Ended subscription?

#31 Edited by jdh5153 (1034 posts) -

I did for a month or to, but there's really no reason to subscribe again. The premium content was useless to me as most of the time I watch the quick looks on YouTube and the only other content I consume is the Bombcast, through the podcast app on my phone, so not even through the website. I subscribed to show some support, but I figure the ads on the site make up what I'm not paying.

#32 Posted by Mirado (1050 posts) -

For 13 cents a day, you too can:

  1. Watch a grown man talk about video games in his underwear, direct from his bedroom!
  2. Watch one man grapple with flight sim controls, while two others attempt to find the eject button!
  3. Watch a group of grown men demonstrate their inability (or unwillingness) to plan a two hour show, live!
  4. Come to the swift realization that the history of Jurassic Park video games is almost universally garbage!
  5. Marvel at the PC games of yesteryear and the crew's inability to hang onto their saves!
  6. Watch as one man descends into the pit of masochism! Frustration Hilarity ensues!
  7. Get a dope medal under your avatar!
#33 Posted by Optix12 (625 posts) -

i every so often (mostly around BLLSL timeframe) get a month or 2 subscription. Mostly because I can download all the premium videos and watch them in my own time. I got most of them last time but didnt realise the full potential of jar time. So next time I get a monthly when I feel something great is premium (and i have monies) im going to get the jar time catalogue and any others I have missed since i last subscribed (bradley may cry, jurassic lark and so on)

#34 Posted by RandomHero666 (3183 posts) -

Because I rarely watch Giantbomb videos and see no other real benefit.

#35 Edited by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

Why ask what your subscription status is, when the delicious question is when? Subscribe, subscribed, will subscribe.

And with that, that quote is officially done. Shutting it down.

#36 Posted by natedawg_kz (236 posts) -

Because l need money to spend on video games that they reccommend

#37 Posted by nail1080 (1975 posts) -

cause fuck spending money on internetz stuff

#38 Edited by MikeJFlick (444 posts) -

Because all I have for spending money on myself goes into my steam wallet, the rest of it goes into bills and savings account ASAP

if someone wants to trade a gift membership for a steam item same price, let me know, that's about the only way I'm going to be tempted to try out GB membership honestly enough.

#39 Edited by Jrinswand (1711 posts) -

I love Giant Bomb, but I don't spend money on websites. As others have said, "Fuck that noise."

#40 Edited by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

cus the premium content isn't very good? hate to say it.

jeff talking to himself isn't cool. brad getting frustrated at a game isn't great, patrick playing "spooky" games or Jurassic park games? eh who cares?

the only interesting premium content ive seen is unprofessional fridays. aside from that no real point.

also its pretty gross you're trying to pressure people into buying a subscription. its not your website, all pressuring people into getting one is going to do is make them NOT want to get one, hell it did for me. fuck this community if its all "get a subscription" bullshit.

#41 Posted by NegativeCero (3039 posts) -

I do! But I won't be re-subbing because I can be better with money and I don't even have time to watch most of the stuff they produce anyway.

#42 Posted by Apathylad (3067 posts) -

Was a subscriber. Not a fan of the redesign and the Happy Hour stuff isn't around anymore, so...

Yeah, it's too bad I haven't been as attached to this site as much.

#43 Posted by analog00 (14 posts) -

I don't get the point of premium. It says TNT and Unprofessional Fridays are subscriber only but I can watch them live (watching TNT now) without even being logged in to the site?

I can't view the archived versions on GiantBomb but they are all on Twitch.tv which I can watch freely.

So whats the point? Also adblocker.

#45 Edited by dungbootle (2428 posts) -

Because I already did

#46 Posted by AiurFlux (902 posts) -

Because I'm lazy. The fact that I don't even have a proper avatar should prove that much. Can't be assed to be quite honest.

#47 Posted by EVO (3940 posts) -

Because I'm poor and don't have the time nor care to watch premium content.

#48 Posted by Seppli (10250 posts) -

Ain't got no online distributable funds, and I don't quite see why - other than to support the *cause*.

Am I a true believer? Probably not.

If I had online distributable funds, I'd buy the shit out of some hoodies to support GiantBomb.

#49 Posted by ll_Exile_ll (1926 posts) -

If I find myself with an extra $50 to spend, I will choose to buy a game 100 times out of 100.

#50 Edited by laserbolts (5365 posts) -

The premium content lately seems to be stuff that I have no interest in watching, they continue to ignore how shit the video player is on this site when the site is based around video content, youtube player is behind a paywall, they rarely if ever take feedback from the community into consideration, Patrick is in about 80% of the content that goes up on this website these days, they run bad jokes into the ground and even print out shirts in most cases to profit from it, and i'd rather just buy a game or some chicken burgers.
