All right. The guys brought up Influencer cash-compensation from the new Epic store on this week's Bombcast. I'm chiming in on this one. Giant Bomb is where I find out about pretty much every game I ever buy and/or play, and have for about 12 years (I seem to increasingly buy games I never get around to playing, but that's okay because I get a lot from their existence, and that's my way of giving back for that enjoyment). Since that's the case, Giant Bomb is responsible for my buying so many games, that I wouldn't otherwise be aware of, and they should be compensated for promoting those games (far more than any ad agency developing commercials, billboards, or the like). I trust Jeff, and Giant Bomb et al. (I used the term!), to keep doing things the way they do things. I strongly suspect that Giant Bomb's control over such things was in the deal when they were bought by CBSi. That said, if I could, I would buy all my video game goods in a way that would give them credit.
What do you guys think?
