ARS: After the giveaway for the Brutal Legend demo codes, I became a little cynical. Why give stuff away if all anyone is going to do is complain about GameStop and argue about demos? I'm giving you guys stuff, and all I get are complaints, complaints, complaints.
So when a reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, picked up a stack of codes for the MAG beta at PAX this year and sent them in as a gift for other Ars Technica readers, I was tempted to do the right thing and give them away. But I decided not to. To hell with that. I'm keeping all of them.
