Cheapy - go get yourself Miralax (or the generic / store-brand equivalent). I wouldn't recommend staying on it long-term but after a couple days your issues will probably largely be resolved. I was put on it earlier this year so I wouldn't have to strain before a hernia surgery and it definitely works very well...

Also, don't diss the current Vizio TV's - they're actually quite good and a fantastic value (especially if you score one on-sale). Also the E line (their budget line) and the P line (their 4K line) are outstanding for gamers due to their extremely low latency. The M line (their higher-end 1080p line) has higher latency so it's not as good of a set for gaming on though still not bad...

The Venom table isn't that hard. I got 65 million on my second play through and got 24th in the world at the time. Here's a video Wombat I uploaded showing how to get multiball on the venom table, and some South Park Pinball multiball.

The intent of curved screens is to reduce glare. When light hits a point on the screen that's bent at an angle away from you, the light is reflected away from you, and so you don't see it. On a curved screen, the only part where there can be glare is a vertical strip down the center (which at least is better than glare everywhere).
This is why cell phones are starting to have curved screens, because using them in full sunshine makes it hard to see the screen.

Why not buy a TV at Best Buy? They price match Amazon and you get to take it home the same day. Not to mention the hassle of returning it to Amazon if something's wrong with the set. You have to pay tax on Amazon purchases now too, so I just purchase stuff at BB.

Cheapy! don't leave us hanging like a dangling turd, DID YOU WIPE YOUR ASS?

CheapyD, you really need to go to a doctor. It's not your stomach, it's your intestines that's giving you softballs.

I listen to the CAGcast while I eat lunch. Needless to say, Cheapy's toilet escapades certainly made that meal interesting.
I've seen plenty of movie theaters with curved screens, by the way. I wouldn't want a curved TV though.

Every time I look under the skirt of a Princess Peach figure, I'll think of this episode.
Posted 14 December 2014 - 02:33 AM
Cheapy, if you need a fix for your stomach, eat a couple dozen pickled spicy peppers. Trust me, it works... For days...

Cheapy is always good at making anything I worry about in regards to bathroom such a non-issue with his stories.
It's disappointing that Wii U discussion is tainted by the same "______ has to be its savior" type of framing that plagued legit PS3 game discussion for the first few years. Granted, I don't expect you guys to dedicate much legit discussion time to Nintendo because you don't really care in the first place, but I'm not sure why Wombat really needs to be shit talking console war people over dumb claims he or they make that nobody really cares about anymore.

That was a very strong 15 minutes of talking about shit Cheapy and Co.
Tip - Eat some Mexican food it'll do the job.

I'm doing the same thing as Cheapy with DriveClub. Waiting for the PS+ version, and if I really like it, then I can buy the game.

A rare S/O to Media Play! As a former MP dept manager I well remember the endless list of pricing errors over the years. The Steel Battalion for 75% off is near the top of that list. It had only been out for about a month (and we had only sold 1 out of 4 copies since we got those giant boxes off the truck) when it magically appeared on the weekly markdown/clearance list. We all knew it was an error, but the policy was to trust the list implicitly. Within a week or so it was back to full price, but by then we had sold them all and then some as we transferred more copies in from other stores for ourselves and other friends. These kinds of pricing errors happened so frequently that managers at our store used to print it off and pour over it immediately when it was released every week looking for the clearance errors so we could pounce on them right away before someone at HQ noticed it and made the correction. Other notable clearance steals: rare Beatles box sets for about 60% off (plus 40% employee discount) and Sony HT in a box for 75% off. Ah the memories....
As always, great episode guys!
Cheapy, what surprised you the most from your time in Japan?

Cheapy's experience in Best Buy is why I didn't bother taking advantage of the Unlocked deal. I can never have a simple transaction at Best Buy. It usually takes double or triple the time it should. I'd rather just buy from Amazon or digitally. The time and headache just isn't worth it.

"Oh," I thought, "CheapyD's got another story! I wonder if it's about his poops."
I'm not sure how to feel about being right.
Posted 16 December 2014 - 01:36 PM
I've heard a lot of poop stories on the CAGCast but this is the first one that made me gag. Something about the idea of attacking and mashing a poop with a plunger creates a terrible image that I want out of my head as soon as possible.
Your comments on Best Buy employees not knowing anything about GCU is pretty much shared across the Internet. Unfortunately I don't see this problem going away anytime soon as it appears BB's hiring process has gotten much more relaxed over the years. Last week I traded in a game with GCU and the employee held my Reward Zone card in her hand the entire time and forgot to scan it, which resulted in needing a manager's override to cancel out the transaction and redo it to get my GCU boost. It took over 35 minutes to trade in ONE game.

The moment the converation turns to the topic of shit, I fast forward five minutes. If they haven't moved on, another five. Been doing that since '06. Makes the pod a lot more listenable.
Used to be worse back in the day.
Re TVs, I would ignore the 4k, 3d, 120hz, curved etc stuff. These are all gimmicks to try to get people to buy new sets every 2-3 years instead of every 10 or 20. Go for an appropriate size, reliabiliity, and overall picture quality. If the gimmicks happen to be thrown in, fine.

I'll bet the ps4 street fighter 5 deal (unless they really mean it) is just for the first version. Super Street Fighter 5 will probably come out on all systems.

Of course CheapyD leaves Tokyo the same week I arrive.
I always love a good poop story, but I don't think you'll ever top the one where you fainted on the bathroom floor after doing a big shit. Amazing.
One question, Cheapy - you are doing low carb? How did you manage that in Tokyo? I'd like to go back to eating that way. Having trouble losing weight, even with the increased amount of walking I do here.
Also, curved screens. They suck in movie theaters and they suck for TVs.
Posted 17 December 2014 - 02:18 PM
Loved the poop story!
Cheapy's move makes up for the boring video game news.
Best of luck!
