Most of the people who work for Gamestop (or gamestop it’s self) are people who want money. they may have changes like, Five dollars to make an account. Or, Twenty dollars for 10,000 points. Or might come up with something to make you background for your account cooler. Ten dollars! Think about it. (I was joking about the first one.)

Most people who work at any job are people who want money. That’s what employment is. You work, they give you money.

Seriously – Can we haz stufz?
ACTUALLY! We’re trying to hook you guys up with some rad stuff to reward the time and energy you put into Kongregate. The plan is to do this through GameStop’s PowerUp rewards program.

When is it?

Yeah sure…. Game stop and free rewards.

Did anyone else notice the front page already looks like crap?

You don’t get “free” rewards… you have to buy GS card and redeem it.

Are they going to Battle Toads on the site?

It’s a temporary rollout between three different layouts.

Well, I’m having trouble resisting the urge to start screaming about evil companies taking over my internets. That’s mostly an impulse though. I’d just like to know more about what’s happening in specifics. Why did Gamestop buy (besides the “they like us” PR)? Is Gamestop going to clusterfuck the site with ads? Who owns stuff? Who’s pays for stuff?

Still, kongrats to you guys for having such dedication that a company like Gamestop wants to buy. Awesome job.

Seriously, I want to spit out my cheerios one morning after seeing Greg do some sort of dance.

I don’t think cheerios would be enough. You might have to take a bite of a cupcake or something to get the full effect.
