13. That's nothing... Dec 4, 2003, 15:29 [AIX]Hood
That's nothing. The AIX Gaming and File Rush merger caused over 1000 layoffs and cost tax payers over a billion dollars. But alas, like that fiasco, we'll weather this one as well. The real question is, will I be charge a Fileplanet download fee with IGN surcharge, or IGN sacrifice fee with Gamespy first born tax? And even more importantly, how will this affect my complimentary Maxim magazine subscription?
