@gorillamopena: Is it just me or has Torito vs. Hornswaggle gotten more of a build up than Daniel Bryan vs. Kane?

I'd like to think that From Software would be making something else besides a Souls game right now...

oh well, I'll probably play this.

What happened to him?

Throat Cancer. A tragedy that the greatest person with a microphone had his voice taken away.

Kind of hard to drive subs if the free content which is basically a teaser for the better content is not liked.

Why are you even here then if you don't like any of the content the site produces?

Therefore there must be something out of the free content that you like.

i would probably agree that making some portions of the premium content free as a taste, or having a premium content-level thing as a freebie would help entice more subscribers, and would probably silence some of the complaints about content quality\quantity in general. but otoh i personally think this site's undergoing somewhat of a renaissance, especially after PAX East. i am a weirdo who thinks $5/mo is worth it just to support the guys and for the bombcast alone, though.

I'm honestly shocked that there hasn't been

  1. A "free week/month trial for Giant Bomb Premium" sort of deal. Netflix and any other streaming video service uses it as a way to hook customers, so people are used to entering in their credit card number for the free trial. That way people can get a free looksies into what they're missing.
  2. Released "Classic Videos" for free. Why not publicly share the three year old Random PC Game video for Police Quest: Swat? Is any of the premium members going to be upset over a three year old video being available for everyone? It would both entice freeloaders regular members to upgrade to view today's stuff and it would make the site seem more full.

It was Crystal Castles and he couldn't be more dead on. (Edit: Though I do like the band, great live show)
