Cheapy, you need to play some Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon to get even with those giant spiders.

Load times - the reason I don't play Morrowind on Xbox anymore. Shame, because it is one of my favorite games of all time.
I am famous for getting CheapyD to watch Swollen Tip while he was broadcasting live.

When are you guys going to ditch the games and just made a straight up talk show? Even a special every other month where you speak of everything would be great

It was probably a huntsman spider aka ashidaka gumo. Looks like they're considered by many Japanese people as good bugs because they eat other insects and aren't poisonous. I still dont know if I'd be comfortable sharing a room with it though.

Wombat was confused about the RE 4 HD controls. If you select TYPE II you can aim with LT and shoot with RT (but you do still have to aim with the left stick.) I hope using TYPE II will help him enjoy the game more.

Biggest spider I found on google image search for Japanese spiders. Obviously you should just ride a spider this large.

That spider story gave me the willies Cheapy! Wombat and Ship can make fun all they want, there's a huge difference between looking at google and seeing an ominous shadow of this in person! Especially after it's kin had tasted human flesh! You're definitely a pussy Cheapy, but not because of this. Be strong my friend.

I'm sorry Cheapy, but if being freaked out about that size of a spider makes you a pussy, than that makes me the biggest wettest pussy on this planet. I fucking hate spiders.

Cheapy what would you have done if the spider got near Tai? If you can man up to save him, then being a spineless wimp the rest of the time is ok I guess.

If I saw that spider, I would leave Japan and never return. That is just ridiculous.

I'm not afraid of killing bugs at all. As Cheapy said, I don't know how you'd kill that one. How much of a splat would that make if you hit it with a shoe? I'd maybe carry a 10' spear with me and stab it.

Cheapy, i think this is the formula you are looking for: ((Length x Diameter) + Weight over Girth) divided by angle of tip squared

Here is a doctor, to better explain:

Wombat, I got tired of my son getting mad at me because he wanted to watch a certain episode when it wasnt the episode airing, i now have over 20 episodes on dvr.

What the hell was that at the 16:04 mark? The Cheapy freakout? Someone should remix that in a song.

I can always count on a laugh from you guys. Anyone remember the classic shipwreck zinger a few pods back. Are you gonna keep talking or are you going to let me take it away. LOL Keep up the good work.

I don't think the Netflix CEO was comparing Qwikster to those companies. Here is the exact quote.

For the past five years, my greatest fear at Netflix has been that we wouldn't make the leap from success in DVDs to success in streaming. Most companies that are great at something – like AOL dialup or Borders bookstores – do not become great at new things people want (streaming for us) because they are afraid to hurt their initial business. Eventually these companies realize their error of not focusing enough on the new thing, and then the company fights desperately and hopelessly to recover. Companies rarely die from moving too fast, and they frequently die from moving too slowly.

I think his point was, those two companies were great at something, but they failed to adjust to the market and died. I don't think he did a great job of communicating that however. Just like he's not doing a great job of running his company, the shit Netflix is doing is just stupid.

Signed up for Audible for you guys. I never do this sort of thing, but after the hours of free entertainment you guys commit to each week, it's the least we can do.

Hey, Wombat, if you're not a huge Grant Morrison fan be ready for a short bout of boredom in Super Gods. Morrison gives a brief autobiography before continuing intothe 90's. Thanks for the free audio book.

The crest is from a really popular soccer team around the whole world. It's Barcelona. lol. Not a stoner crest. I'm referring to Qwiksters new profile pic on twitter btw.

I've rarely laughed so hard at anything, let alone a podcast, at the whole spider story. But then, to top it off, Shipwreck makes the Vita comment about how big it is, then suggested Cheapy puts it in his purse... I almost crashed the car. Thank you, the show was one of the best "things" I've ever heard. Keep up the good work.

Great Show, Cheapy.

About 3D, SONY is release a new Product. It's a 3D headset. If you google "SONY HMZ-T1", you will see this new product. I believe it will be a more proper way to view 3D since you are wearing the glasses anyway. However, I think it's overprice and 720p.
