@mb: It's economic. Plus, Giant Bomb isn't Netflix or Amazon. It's not common practice for the public among the masses to subscribe to a website. Especially one as specific and content dry as Giant Bomb. I say content dry in comparison of other subscription services like Netflix. Not that it's a fair comparison, but it's a hard sell. I really like IGN, but I'm not prepared to pay Greg Miller to keep talking about chicken wings. I appreciate what Giant Bomb means. I see the subscription as a tip jar. I don't consume most premium content.
