So? What's your reason? Why haven't you joined the paid membership yet?
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?
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 :)
I mainly do it because i want to support the site. The exclusive content is not important for me.
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.
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.
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 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.
For 13 cents a day, you too can:
- Watch a grown man talk about video games in his underwear, direct from his bedroom!
- Watch one man grapple with flight sim controls, while two others attempt to find the eject button!
- Watch a group of grown men demonstrate their inability (or unwillingness) to plan a two hour show, live!
- Come to the swift realization that the history of Jurassic Park video games is almost universally garbage!
- Marvel at the PC games of yesteryear and the crew's inability to hang onto their saves!
- Watch as one man descends into the pit of masochism!
- Get a dope medal under your avatar!
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
