You guys complain about the VITA and how it's too pricey yet you want to spend $200 on a Neo Geo retro re-release system which games were only popular back in the day because they looked better than anything else at the time? Shame on you guys.


Agreed. Maybe not quite so much about the Vita part, but I was shocked that they(and so many other people, for that matter) are so interested in this. When I first saw it, I couldn't believe how stupid it sounded and wondered aloud, "Why?".

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I have nothing against Jewish people.

You just to me, came off pretty bad in that last episode bringing up costs, free stuff, making a point to announce you bought your daughter expensive stuff too not just the stuff she talked about. It was cute that she was listing the stuff she got and was happy with it, the comment about her only mentioning the cheap stuff was just weird to me. Any mention of free t-shirt certainly perks your ears up also.

Again, I love ya Wombat and have defended you in the past in the comments when I thought Cheapy was picking on you.


Wow, I don't usually read the thread, but have often wondered what kind of comments cause Wombat to constantly remind people in show feedback that he's just joking. I've always found his sense of humor really obvious. I just...wow, dude, you should probably just stop talking before you get banned or something. That's not how Wombat came across at ALL.

I love Wombat but.... He is such a Jew.

His daughter talked about her presents and seemed to like them a lot and he had to comment and let everyone know that she only talked about the cheapest presents. He also had to drop hints about wanting the Neo Geo thing(which actually looks like it's going to suck, read up on it before buying it) and even gave a back up present idea with the cheap Midway game collection. I just kept hearing, money money money, give me give me give me. God forbid someone mention free t-shirt, of course he wants it and would most certainly wear it. We need a contest, send Wombat the dumbest free t-shirt and then see if he wears it.

Wombat is awesome but dude, calm down and say no to a free t-shirt once just to see how good it feels to be better than something free.

Oh and, did Wombat ever re-pay Shipwreck for the stuff they bought on BF? I remember Ship got Wombat a few things that totaled a little more, even if it's a couple bucks I bet there was never any settling of that debt.


and you go to a site called Cheap Ass Gamer because you love to spend money and pay full price?

Did I listen to the same podcast?

I wouldn't be surprised if Wombat exhibited "being cheap" but it didn't seem like he did that really at all on this podcast. And even then, behavior like that (to at least some extent) shouldn't be surprising from anyone (myself included) who visits a site dedicated to "saving money" (aka embracing their frugality).

I don't see how religion would necessarily play into any of this but maybe I'm confused and this is a site like JDate.

got around to finishing the last 20-25 minutes after 4-5 attempts (yeah sounds like a gaming session). most were when I was going to bed and I would wake up with it finished...


Cheapy getting pissed and cursing was amusing. No idea how literal real time and not in-game time was used for the karaoke app. They should have a yearly option for $200 or so (real time won't matter)!

Can't believe shipwreck pays to have stuff installed - especially by Geeksquad! A mechanical engineer that spends most his time playing games is likely more geeky then those guys. Although, I guess having a mansion and getting that review money has stopped him from being a cheapass if he ever was one. Oh and 40-0, either run up the score or at least let the other team score once (if they can't hit free throws well)

Don't remember much of the show so no complaints or comments towards Wombat.
edit: looked through some of the comments. Wombat hinting about the Neo Geo was amusing/annoying. Just ask for cash next time.
