Shipwreck buys a PC with RAM, Wombat tells Cheapy to stop being a dick, and Cheapy continues to be a dick.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

This is the most cringe worthy episodes I've listened to in a while. I'm still scratching my head as to why both Cheapy and Shipwreck are buying new computers. Their current ones are more than sufficient for the games they want to play and they could easily bootcamp into Windows if need be.

Shipwreck stated he doesn't know much about Diablo and he has played .2 hours of Torchlight on Steam, so this decision seems quite impulsive to me. For their sake I feel it would have been better for them to splurge on something they won't let gather dust after a month. If the living room situation for Cheapy was really that big of a deal he should have gotten a high end Macbook and the same goes for Shipwreck if he wasn't satisfied with his current computer.

Here are my answers! I don't want to install bootcamp and Windows on my MacBook Pro because I use it for pretty much everything from video editing to writing to media serving and I don't want to make a second partition and install Windows on my primary machine.

The reason I played .2 hours of Torchlight on Steam was because it kept freezing up in the first town when I tried playing it. So I just waited for the XBLA version and played 12 hours of it there. I wanted to give PC gaming an honest shot and although it was a bit of an impulse buy, I wanted a dedicated gaming device to do that.

What's cringeworthy is you insisting that Macbooks are the solution. There's nothing wrong with Cheapy and Shipwreck using their own money to buy dedicated gaming PCs to play games on now, and for years to come.

Cheapy said he'll play any game with slow motion shooting, but did he play Vanquish?

Yeah, I've had poor experiences with performance under OSX. Apple's drivers are very poor. When I had a Macbook Pro (mid 2007 2.4ghz with 8600gt), I still wanted to boot camp into windows for Starcraft 2 just so I could have the settings higher. Yes, you can boot camp into windows, but that is kind of a hassle. Especially if you intend to continue using OSX for the majority if your computing.

I'm glad Cheapy and Ship are making the effort to give PC gaming a shot. It's always been a big gap in the cagcast.

Anyway! Wombat: Thanks for reading my comment about DOTA haha. I realize now that I should have said that Awesomenauts is a side scrolling DOTA, not simply a 2d DOTA. Normal DOTA has 2D gameplay too, just from an isometric perspective.

Great podcast so far! I'm about halfway through it.

With that title, I was expecting the opening song to be some sort of Black Betty remix. Missed opportunities.

I've said it once, I'll say it a thousand times: why does conversation about gaming PCs always include talk of a $2000+ rig? I get it, the desire for the newest and best, combined with the funding to build such a computer is hard to resist; however, when I build a new PC every couple years, I spend about $500-600 for every part and can run anything I throw at it with ease. It's a frustrating myth about PC gamers, a lot of us aren't that extravagant.

Due to my love of the movie The Wrestler the phrase "RAM JAM" will be forever linked to this song:

Why don't they use a dehumidifier or something in the stadium, instead of blowing the AC full burn. Unless it's an expensive scheme to force people to buy overpriced sweatshirts.

Just because you can afford to buy a dedicated gaming PC doesn't give you the right to buy one on a whim.

That's a great reccommendation.... This game has the BEST Train level of any game EVER! [in my opinion]

No urge for mod gaming Ship? That's one of the few reasons I would want to get into PC gaming. Some of what I hear sounds absolutely crazy and better than anything most games themselves put into it.

Shipwreck do you collect Sectaurs? I have a few even the one that has the battery operated flapping wings,

I was surprised that Wombat didn't yell out Kazoo or Gazoo.

Actually, I think it does just that. Money can be exchanged for goods or services.

I really don't get why some of you are hating on Cheapy and Ship wanting to buy ridiculous PCs if they can afford it. Especially since they haven't done so before. I don't see Shipwreck doing something like this, but if Cheapy decided to drop $2K every year or two for a new PC, then the complaints would make sense. But for now, whats to say he won't keep that computer for years to come?
