Maybe I'm just a conspiracy theorist, but I find Motherload on NewGrounds to be a bit odd.....
the game was created by GenX around September...I remember playing it on many sites and it got a lot of coverage. Most big company's put their games on newgrounds for coverage, but since Motherload has been out since september I Can't think of a reason why its on newgrounds now.
also, it made the front page? a game that has been out for 6 or 7 months, by a large and wealthy company made the front page? hmmmm its my belief that GenX payed Newgrounds a nice sum of money to have its game on here. any other reason just doesn't make sense.
if it is NOT the case, then I gotta say, I'm just ashamed at newgrounds for being a whore for big company's. I've seen many games and movies on newgrounds from bigger companies just trying to get coverage. is that all newgrounds is becoming?? just a place for big company's to make more money and get more viewers?
need an example? how about the fact that there are new TWO games on the front page made by Cublo games??? the cublo games website probably had a 500% increase in traffic and probably made a nice profit.
I know the world is becoming more and more capitalistic but I didn't think Newgrounds would ever give in to the almightly dollar. maybe I just like complaining, but I really don't like seeing games on Newgrounds from big company's. ITS NOT ITS FUNCTION!
NewGrounds was made for small-time flash artists to submit their works and get tips on how to make it better. it was NOT meant for Cublo Games and GenX studios so that their stocks can go up.
