I think I've found new respect for companies that buy up their competitors for the purpose of taking them off the market. At least their ownest.

IGN and Humble are kidding themselves if anyone thinks its going to be "business as usual". When has that ever happened in any industry?

I was reading the PCGamer's article about this acquisition. As per the article,

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," IGN executive vice president Mitch Galbraith told Gamasutra
Ok… Then don't try to! Pretty please!

I site that gives reviews OWNING a store front, even a charitable one… How could either one of them even think this was a good idea!?

Great. I like HB. I'm pessimistic now on how long it's going to be before it's ruined.

Why did they let themselves buy, after all ?

I'm waiting for EA or Frito Lay to buy IGN.
