I work in Digital Display Media, so for me, Wombat's discussion of the cost for Gawker vs traffic was actually a nice way to tie my work and personal life together! Though, a CPM is the only way for that set up to work, as CPC or CPA would just come at too high a premium for that cost method to ever fly on a site like that
As for Mass Effect 2, I'm in a bit of a pickle- I have a PS3 and just bought one of the new 360's (250gig) soley for the purpose of playing Mass Effect and Fable. Now that 50% of the reason I bought the thing is out the window, am I pretty much SOL? I dont feel so bad, as I also picked up Gears and Dead Rising and was pleasantly surprised, but the idea that I finally caved and then this news break is a bit of a blow to my gut...and wallet.
I know I'm an extreme case here, but I'd like to believe there are atleast a few others in a similar situation. Now, when ME:3 comes out, do we expect it to be cross platform, or XBox exclusive (for atleast a while)?
And Wombat, I was talking to you about Dragon Age too! Way to cut a brother out! The Dragon Age DLC is a bit hit or miss (though Golem of Armgarrak was hard as hell), but the game itself, aside from some issues like Frame rate and complexity of combat (not due to intricacy but poor design), the game itself is actually very well done. I never beat Fallout 3 but stuck with DA:O to the end, because the story was so well done. It's definitely a labor of love, but worth it.
/end diatribe...and boys, get some bean-o.
