GameTap has announced that it will be giving their editorial section the axe and concentrating solely on the distribution business. "We have had a lot of successes over the last year and the move to the web has been a good one for us. While we have been very happy with the work done by our editorial and video teams, we've made a decision to focus the business on our biggest strength, which is our game catalog. As a result, we will be restructuring the site to focus exclusively on gameplay."

    I signed up when I heard that the Sam & Max games would be available and I was was shocked at the amount of games they had. Maybe it was nostalgia but I still think it is worth every penny of the $12.95 a month I spend on it.

    I have never experienced any spam or other crap from them. I get an email telling me new games have been released and that's about it. I forgot my password once and had to call support and a real human answered the phone, fixed it for me and was pleasant to work with.

    The only thing I would really like would be the ability to play the games offline. Sitting in the airport I don't want to have to pay another $9.99 to access their wireless so I can access Gametap.

    Plus - THEY HAVE SAM & MAX!
