#11854700 [DEAD] GameStop Treasure Hunt Thursdays Challenge - Free $5 Xbox credit

Well this sucks that you have to have a Facebook account to actually get the code.

 

I just want to selectively live off the grid   :cry:

I thought Donkey Kong (formerly Donkey Kong Jr.) was Diddy Kong's uncle.  So maybe current Donkey Kong Jr. is actually Donkey Kong III.

 

 

Regarding Wombat's "segment" on free-to-play developers being sonofabitch modern day slavers ... it's funny because it's true.

Regarding the Titanfall bundle, on one hand I'm glad I returned my Xbox One (and PS4) preorder(s) to Amazon.

 

But then again, there doesn't seem to be much "next gen" stuff yet to get the new consoles (Titanfall or otherwise) and pay the early adopter premium.

 

The Xbox => Xbox 360 / PS2 => PS3 jump seemed much greater than Xbox 360 => Xbox One / PS3 => PS4.

 

By this point with the Xbox 360, I was getting a ton of use with it.

It's funny how Wombat was explaining the Net Neutrality thing poorly and then his second example explained it correctly.

 

Net Neutrality means Internet traffic is neutral, there is no preference for one data, stream, etc. over another.

 

Essentially with Net Neutrality struck down, if you cancel your cable TV package and then start streaming Netflix or Hulu to watch "your stories", your ISP can just decide to block all your streaming, for any reason, and may be likely to do so if they know they are your only possible broadband option.

 

In the past, it was illegal for them to do so (or they could say your data plan is for "only the first XXGB" of data).  In the past, you could get a credit if you complained that your Internet was down or slow.

 

Now, if your router can ping Google, your Internet is "working" and you will always be paying regardless of use.   #thanksObama

I like the podcast but man sometimes it's so maddening how you guys love to talk about things that you only seem to tangentially know or care about (especially last cagcast with the PA thing).

 

I can understand why you may want to avoid gaming news to prevent spoiling yourself from games you are looking forward to but it's also then funny that you want to do a gaming podcast ... and don't play the industry's most antipated games ... and then bag a bit on indie games.

 

But I have to fill my driving commute with something I guess so ... keep up the good work?

 

 

Also regarding Gone Home,

I guess you can listen to Wombat's other podcast, Uninformed Opinions.

 

With salesmen skills like that, you could easily replace Don Mattrick.
