Really, Cheapy? Really? Go into full talks of the ending for Mass Effect 3 without saving it to the end or giving spoiler alert notification, instead opting for first 25 minutes? Could've at least said "We're going into spoiler territory now so fast forward!" or save it to the end like you normally do with roundtable discussions, but you just goddamn go for it instead of what I thought was just going to be general feeling or consensus without dwelling too deeply into it. Really?

After that I was done with this episode (26:53 in). I'm CAG so I was hoping to play the game when it's on the cheap and judge the ending when no one else is talking about it everywhere...Instead, yeah.

Ugh, sorry about that. I'm uploading a new version which clearly gives a warning beforehand and advises to skip ahead to the 29 minute mark. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I guess I'm no longer eligible for the Infallible Award of Excellence. See, this is why we need Shipwreck.

EDIT: File has been replaced and spoilers are clearly marked. Again, my apologies.

Wow. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm just glad someone was able to heed my bitching before listening and thanks to Wombat for at least trying to be discreet. Now I'm just...pretty damn pissed at a podcast, which is a first time.

Hmmm - I've played ME3 but not the extended cut yet. I'm wondering how much I'll be spoiled given those circumstances. According to my son who played the new stuff they didn't do anything to the ending - not sure if I can believe him though ;).

I actually am pro-standing desk, since it does break from the tedium of sitting all day long. I would rather get one with a hand crank, since my arms don't get that much exercise as I would like.

I guess I listened to the first version of this week's podcast. Cheapy and Wombat were talking about the new ending to Mass Effect 3, being vague I thought, as they talked about a "green option" or "red option". To me who haven't played ME3 yet meant nothing, then Cheapy out of nowhere drops a pretty big spoiler without warning.

I'm glad you've edited the podcast Cheapy. Sucks I had to have that spoiled though.

Cheapy: Ignore the haters! I wish I could have a standing desk. I nearly hurt myself laughing when you talked about the shame of lowering the desk to masturbate, haha. You're well on your way to another douchebag of the year award with that blimp joke though.

Wombat: I've been meaning to ask if you if, since getting the iPhone, you've come closer to Cheapy's point of view about mobile phone gaming replacing dedicated handhelds. The fact that you're definitely in the market for a 3DS would seem to indicate that you're position remains unchanged. I'm going to have to buy a 3DS or a Vita myself soon, since I'm about to gain a much longer commute than I have currently.

I think that phone games are great for when you're sitting on the pot or just have a brief wait. But if you've got half an hour or so and want a deeper gaming experience, you still need a dedicated handheld.

Cheapy, if you want an excuse to turn on your Vita before Foosball hits you should try the PS Mini Velocity. It's a super fun little game and it's free if you've got PS+ (can't remember from listening if you still have it or not). Seriously, it's awesome. It looks really nice on the Vita too.

Then again, I thought Super 8 was really good so maybe you shouldn't listen to any of my advice.

Sorry to hear about your grandma Ship, wishes going out to you and your family.

I was afraid seeing just Cheapy and Wombat on this show. I had to double check the time on the podcast and see if they didn't go fully old school and only have a 20 minute podcast. Whew...

I liked Super 8.

I still have a 2-DVD plan from NetFlix and I find that works pretty well for seeing all the major movies, although the wait for certain things can be really long. I only just got the first disc of Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 8 yesterday.

sigh.....you guise. NFL Package on DTV allows you to input all your players and can watch in on your tv. I even think the app on the PS3 allows for that.

cmon, man!

Couldn't find this game on the PS store on the vita. . . is it under a different name?

Cheapy, I still find it crazy that you do little to no cooking. Would your diet benefit from healthy meal preparation? At the very least it's got to be kinder on the wallet. I've started working on a more healthy lifestyle, and cooking has really helped. I know exactly what is going into my body, and I have full control.

In either case, it's excellent hearing about weight loss progress. Keep up the good work. It oddly keeps me motivated in my own weight loss goals.

I recently got a fitbit as a father's day gift and I find it incredibly motivating. I had a regular pedometer that i used daily prior to the fitbit, which I would usually log in 10,000 to 12,000 steps per day. Since i got the fitbit I am averaging close to 17,000 steps (it would be higher but it's been pretty hot here lately). I have also used the website to track my weight, food intake, water intake, and sleep. Since father's day i have lost 5 pounds (2 1/2lbs. per week).

Cheapie is in his honeymoon period with his desk.

His love for standing will diminish over the upcoming months and then level off.

What will probably happen is he'll notice new aches and pains associated with standing all of the time.

And gradually he will want to sit more. And then he'll be like...wow.... sitting is so comfortable. I don't remember it feeling this good. That neck ache or back ache isn't there any more. ...But .... the more you start sitting again, the quicker those old pains come back.

And so the real benefit is the switching of positions between standing and sitting. Not good to be in one position too long.

At least that is my experience.

Lately I've been contemplating the motorized treadmill/standing desk.

Yeah, I had the same problem. For some reason the game doesn't show up on the Vita store so you have to download it on PS3 and transfer it over. You know, that whole Sony being incompetent thing. Don't let that dissuade you, though! (I hope you have a PS3...)

Shipwreck isn't on the show this week, and he was the one playing it.
