I'm inclined to post mine in here too. I won't be using it. Does anyone think there is something worthwhile on GS that would make this worth it?

Well, I used to get it in the past for their livestreams of the conferences during E3, but now those can be found in many places on the internet for free, so aside from no ads, I don't really see much of a reason for it if you're not a frequent reader of GS.

@BrockNRolla: It says that I now get "Priority Customer Support." Totally worth it dude!

Ha, thanks for the rationales. I didn't actually realized anyone locked the livestreams behind paywalls, but maybe it's just because I haven't followed GS since high school (7 years ago now) that I never noticed. Just looked at their front page to see if things have changed and saw that one of their latest articles is "Why Porn and Games Don't Mix."

I think I'm probably going to pass.

No. I already got one, cus I am a subscriber here (its currently bugged for me but I'm sure they'll fix it eventually) but I don't really care about it. I rarely- if ever- go to gamespot. Not because of any conceit or hatred, i just lost interest in that site. So mine will be fairly useless but whatev's- it was free haha.

Yeah, I'm certainly not complaining they gave it to us. I just doubt I'll be using it. As long as Giant Bomb comes back to form as the Giant Bomb I knew and loved once all this moving and what-not is done, that's all I need.

@BrockNRolla: Agreed, although I used mine- so we'll see what comes of that (probably nothing =P ). hehe

If the E3 press conferences are all consolidated into Gamespot"s E3 streams, then I'm inclined to keep the code, cause that sounds pretty useful.

Doesn't work for me - wigs out on the address details screen. I'm from Australia, so that might have something to do with it. Tells me that I've forgotten to complete one or more fields when I've clearly completed all fields.

So, when the Giant Bomb's section is complete, will this site close down?

Start Select is an amazing show. They need more support!

I don't go over to Gamespot much anymore (since my old geezer gamer union faded out) but what the hell, if it's free it's for me!
