#14261665 CAGcast #621: Wombat Will Be on the Blank Check Podcast

Posted by gaypunk on 04 February 2020 - 04:45 PM

Eh. Polite counterpoint. 


If Wombat ever takes any sort of moral high ground it's clearly in jest and acts as a counter to when Cheapy has either accidentally said something on the border of good taste, or is about to. It's half-serious at best but necessary for balance.  It's a part of the dynamic that makes the show work, for both the types of folks that use a term like "virtue-signaling" as a pejorative, and people like me. Also a long-time show dynamic, both of them playfully poking each-other about the digital vs. Real life nature of their friendship. What one could call victim hood, some of us see someone being  honest, vulnerable, and authentic. I relate to depressed Wombat  just as much as I relate to Ship's Excel files and target runs. I don't relate to Cheapy, but I appreciate Cheapy.

PS. This is not show feedback, my run-on sentences allways suck on-air.

Glad Wombat enjoyed the game, made my day. I should of gifted Castles to Cheapy & Ship as well, but I figured Wombat would actually try a 1.00 game.


Full disclosure, I was getting my Xbox Insider Quest done.  I was originally going to send the D&D game to all 3 of you, Sword Coasts Legends, it was on sale for 5$, but that game is terrible. 


Castles was hard, I played it for hours to get past the second Helicopter boss. All in all, pretty fun for a cheap ass game.

I got to this thread late, but was still able to reserve a Wii Keyboard for pickup. 3$ is a great price for a midi controller. I wish my local stores actually put this stuff on the floor, it's almost always in the stockroom.

My pre-order is super duper early, black, and no signs of an e-mail. I am kicking myself for choosing darkness.  



So there is a chance I'll still get one of the first black ones as no one else has got a date on them and my preorder is early

I just don't get the constant shade to Hyperkin. It's real, some of us have seen it in person, even had their hands on it. Few of us have given money for it, and if you did, you should of considered placing a pre-order that didn't take your money yet. They are a company with an unreleased product, if long delays offend you, then you should take your money somewhere else. But, being so offended by product delays that you have to spout off and off about it like there is nothing better to do? It's a bit childish. Yeah, we all wish we were playing now, but it's just not a big deal. Especially for a novelty product that at best, is a shelf-space-saver for the retro collector that needs to test new acquisitions, or get their fix.

Seriously? You don't know what Heteronormativity \ Heteronormalcy means? You know what it means. It means the assumption of heterosexuality, or heterosexuality being the only sexuality represented. 


Different, but not that different than being a person of color, and being annoyed when you are never represented, or only represented as a criminal in games. Or being a woman and struggling to find a game where you are the lead.


Saints Row in the past though, has given you some options. I would take aim at a game like Lollipop Chainsaw. Giant pos that was. 


I was scared we were getting into rough territory again, haha, but you guys handled yourself ok. As long as Cheepy doesn't do his Mexican accent, I'm usually ok. Ugh.

Love you guys though, you ignorant douche bags. (Said with love)
