I'd care about giantbomb a lot less if a bunch of freelancers I didn't care about started writing reviews I didn't want to read.
My hope is that they don't use the freelance budget for reviews but instead use it to pay people to write long-form articles about games/game related topics. You know maybe have a former dev write a series about making games, or some big Sega 32x fan write a big article about the 32x.
I hope so. But didn't Jeff say "give patrick freelance money" which sounds pretty bad. Might as well rename the website to Kotakubomb if that happens.
