    Xbox Series S/X Re-stock Thread

    Not overpriced if you are planning to keep your subscription. After you apply the gift certificate to your subscription you are only paying $50 over retail; eBay the game to cover that and you end up with a free headset for your effort.

    CAGcast #681: Floored By VR

    The soccer player you’re looking for is Michael Bradley although tbh Cheapy you look more like his Dad, Bob, who used to be coach of the US national team.

    CAGcast #680: Nintendo’s Family Plan

    I think it was clear that Wombat doesn’t even know who owns the Braves (Liberty Media) let alone whether they have the political clout to change laws in Georgia. They are worth a small fraction of companies like Coca Cola and Delta. Also not sure what Robert Kraft has to do with anything; he...

    CAGcast #678: How About Deez Grape Nuts?

    The discussion of paying NCAA players was oversimplified. The real issue is that most schools lose money on sports overall and the few that make a profit don’t make much. The big money comes from alumni donations but those aren’t considered income for sports even if that is what keeps the...

    Phytoestrogens ARE estrogen, it’s just the kind that plants use rather than humans. In humans it has a pretty weak effect but it doesn’t block anything; I think you just got information from someone that doesn’t understand a complex topic.

    CAGcast #671: Slow Flash

    Yeah, that comment made no sense. Netflix has a lot more original shows, and sure they are not all the greatest; but Disney has kids programming some of which is lower quality than anything done by Netflix. Disney has some expensive licenses but money doesn’t equal quality.

    This is completely false but I’m not going to continue a political argument on a gaming forum.

    You’re missing the point. The law was passed so the USPS had to stop hiding their losses from the pensions, it didn’t create any money to pay them.

    CAGcast #669: The EcoSport of Gaming Podcasts

    Cheapy, you seem to be the one making it political. I think his point was that Social Dilemma is full of people talking gibberish. Since Shipwreck explained about options trading in this week’s episode think about the part where the supposed expert describes companies as “trading exclusively...

    Xbox Series S/X Re-stock Thread

    The USPS loses money because it has promised excessive pensions to employees that it can no longer support with mail volume having dropped by almost half in the last 20 years Nothing to do with having to deliver to rural areas. If there’s a specific type of delivery that loses them a lot of...

    I’ve had zero problems with FedEx but USPS is a complete mess, with items regularly taking 3 weeks. One package took 32 days on a 2 day “guarantee” and another took 21 days to travel 20 miles. If packages are getting “lost” then the issue is really theft, which seems to be happening a lot with...

    Digital sales are heavily weighted to low cost and discounted games. Consumers still have a strong preference for physical copies when the price is the same.

    That’s not correct. Bank transfer definitely works; in fact I find that it will sometimes take from the bank account even when credit card is set as default.

    Cheapy: it was Veterans Day, you don’t need to impute some motive about your neighbor’s signs. Go thank him for his service.

    CAGcast #622: Audio Dad Bod

    I don’t think Wombat understands the actual meaning of virtue signaling.  Virtue signaling is putting solar panels on the front side of your house when they would generate more electricity on the back.  It’s when being seen to be a “good” person is more important than actually doing good.

    CAGcast #573: Our 2018 Favorites 1 USB Charge, Birthday Presents for Children

    I’m with Wombat. Ship needs to look at the box office on the Iron Man movies, especially vs Superman. A lot of people bought the Spiderman game because it was made by Insomniac, not because they were desperate for a Spiderman game. One of the Marvel execs even called it “the Iron Man of Marvel...

    CAGcast #523: Loot Boxed Heroes

    I know you guys don’t play EAs sports games much but the reason EA thought they could get away with the whole loot box mess is their experience with the ultimate team modes. This has packs of cards but it’s basically a loot box and they are making close to a billion dollars a year selling them...

    I wasn’t buying Shipwreck’s argument at all. First of all you can get the same functionality with a phone that comes “free” with your plan. Second, even if you have to have an Apple phone all of the things he mentioned are already present in your existing iPhone, again at no additional cost...

    CAGcast #489: The Legend of Robutler: Uncle Paulie's Breath

    Regarding one percenters I think Cheapy was being too literal. To the occupy Wall Street people that was anyone with household income over $250,000 (also that was the threshold on the so-called millionaires tax proposal). That is more like 2% but you have to consider that some people have...

    You have it the wrong way round. A maid is someone you hire to do the cleaning, usually every week or two. A housekeeper is someone that works full time at the same place and is the supervisor of the people that do the cleaning and maintenance. A maid is what normal people have; a housekeeper...
