Thanks for the show, especially talking about Amalur. Think I'll avoid it on console since I really do not have any space on either console, maybe wait for a price drop on PC.
I'd like to toss my hat in the ring for PC Dead Island DLC. Thanks.

As far as internet celebrity, I think you have to have gotten your celebrity from the net and only the net.
A: Rebecca Black, Charlie bit me, honey badger, Double Rainbow guy
B: Angry Video Nerd

Capitalization is the difference between I helped my uncle Jack off a horse and I helped my uncle jack off a horse.

Also, definitely buy a gaming computer Cheapy. You can plug it into your TV with an HDMI cable and most games are plug-and-play with the 360 controller, so the experience should be pleasant if you prefer couch gaming. Also, if you've seen the Steam sale and Amazon digital download threads, then you are aware of how insanely cheap PC games are compared to console. Not to mention that it would probably be far more convenient for you since you live in Japan and can avoid importing.

I use around 3.5 gigs a month on my phone, and that was before I had netflix. Just lots of Justintv then.
But, I was always streaming something 10+ hours a day. 2 gigs should be fine.
Check out Stitcher if you can, its basically Pandora, but for podcasts.
.. and Netflix of course.
2 Gigs of data on an iPhone go fast if you are watching a bunch of youtube videos or streaming audio.
That's all it boils down to. Streaming. If Wombat is going to use Netflix, Pandora, i♥radio and the like, then yeah, 2GB will go fast. 2GB is fine for normal every day functions including downloading apps and games. I'd say just stick to personal mp3's, podcasts and gaming on the commute and there's nothing to worry about.
Personally, I'm on Unlimited but my wife is not. I have Wi-Fi set every place we go (home, work, friends, family, even popular restaurants, etc), so neither of us are doing anything data intensive over 3G. That way if she's out and wants to pull up YouTube, download an app or stream something I don't have to fret about going over.
Looking at the past 18 months of usage, my biggest month was 286mb. So I could save money by dropping the unlimited, but I know I'd curse myself the day I did.

I love you guys! Especially Wombat cause his sense of humor is similar to mine.
Kudos to Cheapy and Shipwreck for being excellent minions to Wombat's wretched hive of scum and villainy. If I had one wish, it's that each episode would be 90 minutes or longer just so I can listen to more real-life antics between you three.
Thanks for everything and see you next week! ~Fairy Leviathan / Crystal Sea Fate

Well, lets look at objectively in how we compare to what people would consider normal celebrities and derive some universal guidelines.
A List - People who have had over a length of time a large popular following. I would say to make the A list you would need to have ventured into the mainstream media relatively often, be that through movies, TV shows, magazines or conventions. Also included in here would be people who have been both successful and popular in mainstream media as well as online media.
Examples: Penny Arcade Guys, Leo Laporte, Felicia Day, Will Wheaton, Mark Zuckerberg
B List - People who are very well known in a specific niche genre on the internet. They may have had a passing note in mainstream media from time to time but are largely know by their dedicated genre and fan base. Often thought of in relation to a specific website. I would say that most of the popular podcast groups would fall under this heading.
Examples: Rooster Teeth chaps, Cheapy and crew, Jonathan Coultran, Giant Bombcast guys.
C List - The one hit wonders of the internet. Often occurs due to a sudden uptake of a meme or attaching of mainstream media note. Largely forgotten in a few months never to rise again.
Examples: Rebecca Black, Star Wars Kid
From what I could find, the full size krackel bar was discontinued sometime between 1998 and 2006 (reports vary). Apparently it had something to do with a change in chocolate formula which would have forbade them from continuing to put "milk chocolate" on the wrapper due to a reduced cocca butter content.
Oh and if any PC codes happen to fall my way that would be pretty cool.
