I am totally sick of these defending Tebow comments. Wombat is right, unless Tebow says he's not anti-gay or anti-choice, he will be judged by his actions. He chose to appear in an advertisement for a reactionary Christian group, and because of that it basically makes him a spokesperson for the organization, including their views.

For the record, the language spoken in Sine Mora (which itself is Latin for "Without Delay") is Hungarian and not Japanese or gibberish. Seriously, what is it with you Americans and your inability to distinguish languages?

I've read and heard this complaint thousands of times. Please consider that North America is about 2.5x the size of Europe with only 3 major languages (English, Spanish, French). We aren't great with other languages largely because of geography. One can go thousands of miles where everyone speaks the same language on this continent. In Europe, the language will change many times in a half the distance.

I finally finished ME3 today and I am really looking forward to the CAGCast's opinions. The ending was incredibly disappointing in my opinion and the internet hate in regards to it is surprisingly justified.

The ending is spoiled by numerous gaping plotholes and the absence of a payoff for your character's choices made across all three games.

I believe people cared about Mass Effect because of its well fleshed-out fiction and emphasis on player choice. Both are betrayed in the last 20 minutes and it makes me sad.

He appeared in an ad for FOTF, those actions are enough. Their views are his views. When/ If he says otherwise I will happily apologize to him.


Changing teams because of 1 person is crazy. If you don't like what he's saying give him no attention and ignore him like any other crappy commercial.

Wombat did an ad for Go Daddy. Go Daddy CEO kills elephants and leopards in Africa. Wombat supports that........... ( you can see where that's going, I know you don't)

Wombat believes for some reasons that words and beliefs are more powerful than actual actions. Idiotic speech and beliefs can be ignored and belittled.
There are retarded self-righteous christian fundamentalists on my school campus, I ignore their idiocy and go on about my day.

I find the actions of other Jets who were accused of and committed crimes (and sometimes got away with it because of who they are) more despicable and worthy of hate. Here's a quick list.

Domestic Violence
Assault
Sexual Assault
Aggravated Molestation
Statutory Rape
Felony Assault

I'm with Dark Rider, the Panthers bandwagon still has some good seats available for this year.

I was disappointed to hear Cheapy watches Jersey Shore, took some points off your board.

Overall, loved the podcast as usually, keep up the great work!

Fair enough, but the two or three (outdated might I add) things in that, don't really speak for my 700+ games... Still, a funny bit of irony.

As for Wombat, aren't you a Jew? Why are you having some big issue with someone speaking out against homosexuality due to their religion? I'm not sure if you've read Leviticus anytime recently, but Jews aren't really okay with it either. Do you just pick and choose what parts of your religion to follow?

R.A.D ( robot alchemaic drive) is the shit hands down when it comes to giant robot games. thats a game they should have done a sequel or remake to and then added in move controls game would have sold like crazy. ive still got a complete copy of it myself might pick up a cheap ps2 at some point so i can play it again. hell it might make for a good vita game too.

C'mon now. There's not much I don't play on consoles. If you are talking PC, then fine... I don't enjoy gaming on a PC and don't have one, but on consoles... I pretty much play everything. I looked at your Xbox profile and it seems like you really like chasing Achievements which is cool if you're into it. I don't really do that. That said, you've played 140 Xbox games and I've played 473. I'm not saying I've beaten all 473, because I haven't, but I give everything a fair shake.

That's cool, and also to be fair, I did say you were better than Cheapy/Wombat. It's just that when talking about things that Cheapy and Wombat aren't into (ie anything non mainstream) the conversation gets cut short or doesn't happen at all. I suppose the full breadth of your tastes doesn't really get a chance to be conveyed. Don't get me wrong here though, love the Shipwreck <3 lol

FOTF was a political ad, very different from a product ad, also we stopped doing GoDaddy Ads after the Elephant incident. I will say we didn't stop because of that, but that didn't hurt our decision.

About the games, I play what I want to play, thats it. I also work 12 hours a day and have two small children. Call me when you build a machine that gives me 6 more hours per day to play that games you like.

Being "against homosexually" is deplorable and if you are, please find a new podcast.

To backup Wombat's point those of you who know E (the head XBox Live engineer that's been on Major Nelson's podcasts since almost the beginning) disowned his hometown/childhood favorite team the Philadelphia Eagles when they originally signed Michael Vick and pretty much the entire NFL and only watches college football now (he is a big supporter of his alma mater Oregon.)

You completely avoided my point, though. Are you not a Jew? I seem to remember you talking about that many a time. Did you decide that you have the authority to pick and choose what parts of your religion you will follow? That seems really damn convenient. Everyone should do that, then no one would have a problem being 'x' religion. You don't like those parts there? NO PROBLEM! Just choose not to follow them. At least that sports dude, forgot his name, sticks to his morals, whether you agree with them or not, and isn't some wishy-washy hypocrite >_>

So because his religion is against it he has to hate homosexuality and people who are homosexual? What?

Idiocy like that is what causes a lot of hate towards other religions/people in the world.

Did I say he was supposed to "hate" it or those that are? Please don't exaggerate and put words in peoples mouths. It really just exacerbates the situation. Idiocy like that causes many a point to be misconstrued. His religion being against it does mean that he should be. He can take that to whatever magnitude his personal convictions push him to. When you choose to be a part of a religion, you're a part of that religion. You don't really get to pick through all the beliefs and just white out the ones you don't like.

Wombat himself is not gay, so what part of his religion is he going against? Is it some part of Judaism where you have to be against everyone else being gay? Going further than that, is he supposed to be against everyone who doesn't share the same religion and beliefs as he does?

He specifically said that he no longer supported that team and that guy because of his anti gay views (to whatever magnitude they are). The guy has those anti gay views because of his religion, Christian in this case. Wombat is a Jew. Jews are just as against homosexuality as Christians are. Do you not see the slight disconnect there?

It's called taking it to extremes and creating hate. That's how I see it.

Also is there a part of Judaism where he's not allowed to like Tim Tebow for being a douchebag?

I know nothing about the dude. If he's a douchebag, then Fuck him. Wombat specifically pointed to his anti-gay views, and therefore that is what I am commenting on. This is not meant to be a defense of Mr. Tebow because, like I said, I am not familiar with him. That guy may be the biggest douche in the world, but Wombat's specifically cited issue is still firmly in the hypocrisy camp.
