Nobody freak out. :shock:

I'm replacing the Google ad block with an ad for Ziff Davis (owners of www.1up.com and publishers of EGM, XBN, CGW, et al.) The ad will actually be smaller than the Google ad block that it is replacing.
They will be running ads for CAG on their site as well.

Do not read anything into this. Its an ad exchange, I did not sell the site, nor am I in talks to do any such thing with anybody.

Thank you.

It seems that 1up fits the demographic better than google.

i think 1up is a pretty good site. I like it a lot better than gamestop, and I trust that Ivan guys PC game reviews more than most of what my friends tell me.

good move Cheapy.

EDIT: I meant Gamespot.com not Gamestop. I am constantly doing that for some reason.

I think its hilarious that after all the "you sold out arguments" that he got yesterday that now if he even makes a slight change he makes sure we know his intentions.

It was really this thread that made me realize I need to let the CAGs know whats going on at all times!

i dislike this ad for 2 reasons.

1- it reminds me of a time when i knew not of CAG and paid 50 dollars for wario world.
2- when the hell was wild arms 3 five dollars?

nice. needed to turn off firewall to see it, but cool. and wild arms 3 for 5 was an overstock deal

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

I was in HEAVEN when I saw both CAG ads (we have both a banner and a skyscraper ad) simultaneously on the front page of egmmag.com with the creator of Mega Man as the main headline! :mrgreen:

Let that be a lesson to ya! Oh wait... it was... nevermind...

I for one like the ads. Mods need to get ready for an increase in newbie posts though. You know, the ones where they didn't bother to do search before they opened their mouth. :lol: Ah, the days of being a newb. I remember them fondly.
