You might have noticed if you are not using an ad-blocker that the ads lately on gamersyde have been getting more and more intrusive. Even though I'm personally quite happy not to have to pay some of the site's expense out of my own pocket anymore since we switched to our current ad network, this latest type of ads is utterly and absolutely not acceptable. We are currently working with our ad partner to ensure these are never to be seen again on the site (please let us know on the suggestions forum if you see any of these again starting tomorrow), and I hope we'll be able to bring you guys the same quality of browsing as we had before. We are also thinking about another way of financing the site, so if you are interested, read on inside this news!
We are thinking about using a site like Patreon to have an alternate way of financing the site besides regular ads. For those who never used that site, it allows you to give an arbitrary sum of money to someone or a company, on a monthly basis.
This generosity would of course mean a few things for our patrons, like ads being disabled (of course), a special mention on the forum account, a dedicated download server, little things like that. Needless to say, no current (or future as far as I can tell) feature of the site will find itself magically restricted to our sponsors, you should know us well enough by now to know this would never happen. :)
What do you think about that idea? Would you be willing to help us financially with a patreon-like system?
@Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (6 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (7 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (7 Hours ago)
@droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (7 Hours ago)
Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (7 Hours ago)
And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (7 Hours ago)
Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (7 Hours ago)
