Kinetic Shigatura : i rate this video 10/10-IGN. to much water

ThaRixer : Great video. You raise some pretty good points.

Ten Duchys : "I've been ItsJabo" Does that mean that you are ItsNotJabo now?

Namekian Jedi : Never really trusted ign. They feel way too much like a business to me.

smoker g : I blame the runners. If IGN has figured out a way to milk $$ from WR videos, the only people to blame are the those stupid enough to give IGN permission to reupload their records for nothing in return. It's just a lack of experience on the runner's part. It should be very easy for someone to negotiate a deal with IGN where they get paid a percentage of the revenue or a sum of money for permission to use the video itself, but most speedrunners don't bother going through that process and just accept the "exposure" from IGN. Good video though, but I think your message should have been directed at the runners instead of IGN, since the runners are the only people who can put this change into action. Subbed.

The Angry Gamer 360 : YES! THIS VIDEO IS FINALLY HERE

Emily Quinn : a well put together video!! good job Jabo

Lucas Flores : Interesting point of view, but at the end of the day, everything for the corporate suits is money, nothing else matters for them

Project Mayhem : IGN = *_I_* gnorant bour *_G_* eois *_N_* ephew
