is this the first time that UG had a full back ground advertisement!?
the one thing i liked about UG is because it has just the right amount of ads
but the full sized ad for the brutal legend vid game i see today made me a little disappointed
what do you ppl think?

Why does it make you disappointed?


How dare UG try to make enough money to keep the office in business and all the peoples wages paid. The nerve of some people, hm?

Keeps US in money so YOU can continue to use this site for free.

Plus I think it's a pretty cool ad since i'm picking this game up tomorrow.
Most of the important things


in the world have been accomplished


by people who have kept on


trying when there seemed to be no hope at all

oh ok, cause it's the first time i've seen it so, pardon my ignorance
i didnt take it to the site suggestions forum is because i wanted to know what you guys think. and besides this isnt something to be suggested for the site, i know it was for the good of the office of UG, and what i hope is that UG to concentrate more on the quality of the site instead of making loads of money. yes they are doing a great job so far keeping this site down to earth and thats why i love it here so much. because i've never seen an ad that big, so i thought is UG starting to go all commercial now? that's what disappointed me. but knowing that it isn't the 1st time, reassures me that this site is going to stay in the right course.
UG FTW!!

I actually like this one. This one and Crack The Skye adverts were quite nice.

EDIT: ^ It is Jack Black. It's a game based on him, apparently.

An awful lot of people need to be paid to keep this site running. Note how many Russians are owed a wage. The money doesn't just appear out of nowhere.

yes they are doing a great job so far keeping this site down to earth and thats why i love it here so much. because i've never seen an ad that big, so i thought is UG starting to go all commercial now?


It's a business. Of course it's commercial.

Does anyone of you also think that the Brütal Legend theme music sounds like the intro music to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Especially at 0:19 and onwards.

UG isnt going all commercial, it just that with the recession, people arent willing to pay as much for the standard internet ad. And with the number of people using things like adblock on the rise, UG needs another source of income to stay up and running.

Last time I checked running website ads doesn't turn a website into a multibillion earning company

you misunderstood me, i used microsoft just as an example
i didnt say UG's gona use internet ads and become RICH like microsoft
i said i THOUGHT, due to my ignorance, UG MIGHT become all money and no quality, just like microsoft. but i have been proven wrong already. what i would like to know more is what you guys think of an ad taking up the whole background
