Please note that no one is losing anything due to the Publisher's Club subscription service, but those that are classy enough to sign up will gain a more enjoyable experience at The Escapist!

For those that have no idea what I'm talking about: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/registration/subscribe

Fantastic incentives for anybody who wants to support the Escapist.

Thanks for all the quality entertainment and thought-provoking articles you deliver!

Looking very cool. Always nice to see you guys going forward and pushing things further!

looking forward to seeing the changes implemented

QUESTION : Is it open to people from EU?

Get a Paypal payment option up, and I'll be all over this.

SOLD!

It's about time you guys got this!

From Jaredin's question, Australia as well?

To be honest, I can't say I'm too overly happy, seeing as I'm more of a LRR forum member than an Escapist one.. And they released high quality videos each and every week for free.. Now that's being torn away to benefit The Escapist instead of the ones who already had it looking awesome?

Weird.. But I'm certainly sure that the hardcore LRR fanbase will be raging. A lot.

Plus, not to sound harsh or anything, but I could hardly call people like Yahtzee or Marion "game journalists/reviewers". To review a game, you play it properly and give an unbiased opinion/viewpoint.. Not just drop it because you're "rather bored". It's your job. Do it properly or let someone else who actually will.

Ahem..

Anywhere Amazon will take payments from. They like money, so I think they'll take them from nearly anywhere.

I'm on board with this. I like supporting websites that I frequent and if they're going to give me something in return, it's just as well.

Also, anything to get rid of those really creepy looking pasta advertisements. The wriggling is very unnerving.

Hm... can we unsubscribe whenever we want to, or is it a "Once you sign in, your in for life" type deal. You know, kind of like a cult or something...

Just wondering, since I would love to support you guys, but am just not to crazy about yearly subscriptions...

Irridium:

Whenever you want, including immediately. The benefits run through the last second no matter what.

I think I'll be in, just for supporing the escapist ( I don't get much excitment from HD videos, and beeing from Brazil I'm not eligible for most contests, so...). But I don't know for how long - also, 10 seems a fairly good contribution IMHO - so I need to ask: what if I want to cancel my subscription in the second year?

Edit: well, answered while I was typing. Awesome!
Edit #2: Not as awesome as that GOLDEN "e" badge! Now how's that for bragging, huh?

I'll probably join... I so spend a lot of time on this site... Seems logical to put a bit of money in.

Thinking of a forum title will be the hardest thing...

EDIT: 13 pounds for us Brits... That's not too bad.

EDIT 2: Curses! only 1.36 in my account, Well I would join at this discounted price but it looks like that's a no no now, Fuck. I'll join full price when I get paid.

Deffinatly something to think about. I certainly spend the majority of my time on the internet on here so perhaps I will jump on that 10 dollar deal.

Sweetness. Tomorrow I shall go to Walgreens, get a pre-paid credic card, and give you guys money!

Quick question: will it be auto-renewal, or is it manual?

And will you get a message if your subscription is about to expire?

As a general rule, I think closing your site off wholesale to free members (see: Financial Times) will be a deterrent to a lot of people. That said, I think a "premium member" scheme will be more effective on a site like this, as long as you don't slap the free users with the Wet Fish of Promotion too often.

Memo to self: is this site worth £13-ish (or in this case, £6.50-ish) per year?

You're all going like; "imma subscribe! imma support this sh*t!". Well. I have subscribed b*tches w00t! What do I win?

There is no such thing as an objective opinion. Reviews will always reflect the biases of their authors.

I have a question, do you only get to choose your title once or are you able to change it?

Might I ask is the 50 percent discount starting from today? Need to know how much money to put on my pre pay card so I can subscribe to this shizz as soon as possible.

*checks subcribe page* Seems so.

Ahem..

You do realize that Marion is a fictional character and that Reliable Source is satire, right?

You also realize that The Escapist hosts a number of reviewers, of course?

As many times as you want.

Well said!
This is a great initiative! Support a great site, and get some great stuff in return!

Interesting. Depending on my financial situation next week, I might sign up for this then.

Great! I was worrying that it might be like your username, I shall purchase it right away!

Is this a guarantee that video quality will not be diminished for standard users? If so, then good show and good luck. If not, then BAD ESCAPIST! I strongly suspect the former is the case though, so as I said, good show and good luck.

It may be fictional and all, Susan, but it's still.. Well.. In extremely poor taste. I've read through a few and I really just can't stand it.

And of course I know of the actual reviewers, in fact I've watched several and enjoy them.. But there's reviewers.. And.. Well.. Douchebags.

Wootness. Go team!

And as Kuliani et al have said, you will absolutely not lose anything by not subscribing, so don't worry about that :)

Am I able to pay for this via Mastercard or Visa? I couldn't see anything about payment methods maybe I wasn't looking hard enough.

Oh, that's fine if you don't enjoy RS, it's not for everyone, but to lump Marion in with the rest of us is simply unfair. If you consider a fictional character to be a douchebag, no problem, but I hope you're not saying that the rest of our reviewers aren't doing their jobs.

You guys should hire Fanboy and the Avatar store to make custom avatars for the premium members, that would be awesome.

SikOseph:

I'm sure not planning on re-encoding ALL the videos AGAIN just to lower their quality.

Correct, you will still see the videos exactly as they are now if you do not subscribe. Along with their ads. All those nice, pretty, enjoyable ads. Mmmmmm. I love watching ads, even those flash ones on the forums that slow my computer down a little. Those subscribers are missing out on all the wonderful distractions! http://www.escapistmagazine.com/registration/subscribe

Yep, you can do both, they where on the payment options when I signed up.
