It's not a controversial or dangerous thing to say. If "his brand" is so soap-bubble weak that he's afraid for its future by making such a bedrock-level statement of support, maybe it's not worth keeping around. He comes across as a coward here.


It's not controversial or dangerous. The problem is that this turns people off because people aren't tuning into the Cagcast to hear their stances on social issues. We can listen to cable news or go on Twitter for that. This is the same problem sports and other industries faced when they started talking about social issues and making stances. I'm sure there are people who care about this stuff but the general audience doesn't. There is nothing cowardly about refusing to have stances on social issues on a show called Cheap Ass Gamer. All brands are weak, the minute you start doing something the audience isn't interested in they will leave, just look at Star Wars, the MCU, modern comics, etc. 
I have a question for you, why does the Cagcast need to have a stance on Trans Rights?

Cheapy weird defensiveness for JK Rowlings and Harry Potter is really odd and leaving a bad taste in my mouth, especially because after listening since 2006 I know that he isn't some bigot.  Is it really more important to not have wombat tell you what to do than it is to say that the Cagcast stance is Trans Rights are Human Rights? 


I really do love the show, so please don't take this as an attack or anything like that.

No one likes to be told what to do or say especially adults but more importantly I'm sure CheapyD doesn't want his brand taking stances on issues that have nothing to do with the show. Also without actually discussing what these Trans rights are the whole "Trans right are Human rights" phrase is meaningless and pressuring people to say it accomplishes nothing. 




Has Cheapy watched The Offer yet?

Hogwarts legacy hasn't released yet for PS4 or Xbox One so 12 million for just current gen and PC is pretty impressive.

In America you can’t force someone to share the same views as you, but you can choose not to buy certain books, movies, and games, but just because you choose not to, doesn’t mean millions of other people are going to follow suit. Plenty of people are going to boycott HL because of Rowling, but just as many, and probably a lot more, are going to buy it, because they enjoy Harry Potter, and don’t give a shit what she says on Twitter.

Agreed 100%. It's a shame people like Wombat don't seem to understand this. 



Here is the problem with what you said, and it's very telling. You think it is OK for someone to view a Transgender person as less than, as that is just thier "view". I don't care what country someone is in, just because it's someone opinion doesn't make it right or OK. Opinions can be wrong, and JK's "opinion" is wrong, and no one should have it, and no one at any company should have to deal with someone that thinks that way. Yes, EA should denounce it, they same way they should denounce racism or anti-Semitism, if that was an issue with development with the game. Your comment while long, in my red-blooded American opinion was the stupidest thing I have read in quite sometime.  

You are so blinded by your hatred for JK Rowling that I doubt you even know what her views on Trans people are. She has never once claimed that trans people are less than. This is the real problem right here, people will interpret someone's words or actions to mean whatever they want them to mean and then get mad at their interpretation and not what was actually said or done.  Opinions can be wrong but in a free society people are allowed to have whatever opinions they want regardless if it hurts someone's feelings.

Posted by Sinfulfate on 30 April 2019 - 03:03 PM

For some reason, episodes 587 and 588 won’t show up for me. I’m stuck at 586. I use Apple Podcasts. Anyone else having this issue? I’ve tried refreshing, unsubbing and resubbing, ect...

It shows up when I search for it, but I don’t want to have two separate CAGcasts on my list...

I have the same problem with Google Podcasts on android. I had to listen to these episodes on Spotify.

Has anyone redeemed the 1 year game Pass reward? I've been saving up for that to sell but I don't know if its a code or if it just applies to your account.

I went with the hyken chair. The chair is very comfortable but it does feel weird going from a big cushion chair to a smaller mesh one.  Once I get more use to it though it wont feel so weird. 

#13771738 Houses/Apartments: Rent vs Buy

Posted by Sinfulfate on 07 July 2017 - 05:33 PM

I've never even considered renting a place, my dad told me buying a home would make more sense so after I graduated college I moved in with my parents and saved for a house. I bought a 1100 sq ft home for $66k and put $30k into it. My mortgage is only $750 a month and the money I get from renting out my spare bedrooms pays for that. I live in Maryland.

Haven't posted my collection in a while, bought my own house now so I have a lot more space.  I sold most of games when I was still living with my parents so I am slowly rebuilding my collection.

#13520087 Xbox One - General Discussion Thread

Posted by Sinfulfate on 13 November 2016 - 05:21 AM

In search of a gaming headset for recording purposes as I can't obviously have my TV blaring when I'm trying to record onto my mic so I need a headset to listen to the game's audio. Will only need it for recording sessions when I need to mute the TV as otherwise I just listen from the TV as I don't play any games that require chat and don't intend to get any that will in the long run. Just saying that as chat functionality isn't huge for me. Anyway, I have no experience buying big name gaming brand headsets but see there's at least two going on sale for BF:


Wal-Mart has the Turtle Beach Recon 50P f



Best Buy has Turtle Beach Ear Force XO One



Either of these any good? My budget before I realized it was BF sales time was 100 bucks but if either of these meet my criteria might as well save money right. I just want the audio to be of good listening quality and something comfortable as I don't go for long periods of time playing things so maybe something I could be fine wearing for 2 hours max. As I said, chatting is irrelevant to me but I still want something from a good brand that will provide good enough audio to hear since I can't rely on my TV for recording reasons.

I got that Turtle Beach headset last year for Christmas and I'd recommend it. Game audio is great and its really comfortable.

#13506703 What is a good price to sell a 1TB Fat Xbox One for?

Posted by Sinfulfate on 01 November 2016 - 07:00 PM

I'd say around $175 if it doesn't include any games. I put my 500gb launch Xbox One with both halo games on Craigslist for $150 and it sold fast.

Where do I redeem the 12 digit code? I tried the ps store and it didn't work.

I redeemed mine on the online PS store and it went through.  Amazon just shipped me the game so I won't be playing until tomorrow.
