The original Sharknado is a free rental on Xbox Video through the Shark Week ad.

Xbox Video is trying an experiment. Free movie rentals with ads. Nothing great, old catalog films, but it's free. I found the easiest way to find them is do a search in Xbox Video for "ads". I see four:

Harold and Maude - a dark comedy from 1970. Probably the best of these.
Powaqqatsi - artsy fartsy documentary.
Platoon Leader - a cheap knockoff of Platoon, starring Michael Dudikoff.
Wrong Turn at Tahoe - Cuba Gooding Jr. crime drama.

Like I said, nothing great, but free.

Of course Cheapy didn't like Iron Man 3 or Agents of SHIELD. Neither is a depressing documentary.

This is the Windows 8 walled garden Gabe Newell was talking about. Before Windows 8 launched they announced there was going to be two versions:

Windows 8 Pro. This is the one people could buy, upgrade to, and what you get with new computers.

Windows RT. Aimed mostly at ARM based mobile CPUs. This one only comes preinstalled on tablets. Consumers can't buy this on their own. This is what Gabe was worried about because this version only apps and programs installed from the new Windows Store. Since Steam's business is digital distribution, of course he was worried.


The reality is that Gabe had nothing to worry about. Windows RT was only for tablets, not for the kind of computers that do real PC gaming. Also, Windows RT has struggled in the market. Partly because of the limitations, partly because it turned out ARM based processers weren't much cheaper than the full-blown ones. The only model still being produced is that basic Microsoft Surface.

Re-listen to the New Releases section. For every title Cheapy has to make a comment about PC. It won't look as good as the PC version. Is that coming out for PC? PC, PC, PC. We get it. You own a PC. It's your preferred platform. Just remember most people don't have a gaming PC. It's a niche audience. Most of your listeners game on a console and it gets tiring to listen to harp on the PC constantly. Shipwreck also has a gaming PC, but he doesn't beat us over the head with it.

Screw you, Cheapy. Just because a mobile game isn't coming out on your precious Apple devices doesn't mean that the listeners weren't interested in hearing Wombat's impressions of Halo: Spartan Ops. Dick move shutting him up.
