    I wonder if many others have done the same?

    What was your reasoning for cancelling?

    Not a fan of IGN, not a fan of the muddying of the waters, and just generally wasn't feeling it anymore. I'm no soap-boxer but quitting felt like the best response.

    This seems like a bad idea PR wise but I don't even really have a good reason.

    Seems self defeating to miss out on good deals because you dislike owners who are saying they will have no part in its operations. Sure if they start changing things you can argue against the change but otherwise a good deal is a good deal.

    Not to mention the... you know... charity bit.

    That's what I was thinking. If they say this will let them earn more money for charity then we should be supporting it, as long as they don't start making radical changes in favour of IGN.

    Like selling them your steam / bnet data if you had your accounts linked?

    I liked the Humble Bundle guys, and have subscribed for a while now. These changes go against what I would want - so as the Humble guys got theirs I am simply ending my subscription. Over the many months I have been subscribed I really didn't get much I wanted/enjoyed but remained subscribed because I liked the 'product' and the team. That has changed so I quit - no need to over analyse this.
    You do you.

    My guess is more advertising on site, links to IGN content on each game - especially reviews - are going to be the outcome.

    I haven't been subscribed, so that changes how I look at it. Certainly anything I buy I'll be dropping any of the money going to Humble itself and that difference can go to charity on top of what I would have given anyway. That's my recourse to not being happy about the purchase.

    Thanks. But that message is contradictory. Me doing me is me questioning people about their decisions.

    For instance, you say that you liked the product and the team... the product is unchanged. The team is the same. Yet you claim it has changed.

    I'm curious as to how you reached the conclusion that the team or the product changed. The facts don't seem to support that conclusion. It looks more like you are letting your bias against IGN do your decision making, rather than, you know, reality.

    What changes are there?

    canceled as well and wrote to them to why

    to me HB was a charitable org and IGN ownership would clash with its fundamental values in terms of advertising, bias etc.
