Screw Attack now on IGN?

by superlarz Sat Apr 25, 2009 3:46 pm

Hey everyone, I was just watching some videos and went to the screw attack page on gametrailers.com and there was no videos there. I thought it was just down or something, until I went over to IGN later in the night and found all of the screw attack videos are over there now.. So if anyones looking (or cares) it seems screw attack videos (including AVGN) are on on IGN.

They should really stop touting how "independent" they are. Just a few weeks ago there was another video dedicated to how awesome they are for being "independent". Very obnoxious. I'm fine that they are running a business. They've got their own fucking Con coming up. That's great. Just stop pretending to be so "down" with us.
Probably not the Mozgus you remember. More understanding, more drunk, less irate, less informative.

I couldnt agree more. If they were a band they would definitely be called sellouts.

Oh here we go the old sell out label. Ya know people started giving that label to Metallica after they released the black album? I mean forget the fact they made amazing music on that album and got more people into metal.

Anyways as for Screw Attack why not let them toot their own horn? I mean they are more entertaining than most video game websites anyways. And I like how they bash "the man" it's funny especially from somebody who hates "the man".

Anyways yeah ign will get them more hits on their website. I like the move I think it's a good idea.

These guys are clowns who bank on weak retro games culture stereotypes to get a cheap thrill. I'd rather they be on IGN than GT, get's them out of my hair.

They seem to be back on GT. I haven't bothered checking their presence yet at IGN, but I do know that they struck a deal a long time ago to put The Armory on IGN, a simple series that features video game weapons.
