Well I feel the next gen is coming out too late. They shouldn't have done a 7+ year cycle that had 3-5 games of a single series, on one current gen system. They should have brought the next gen systems out a year ago or more with Halo 4, Uncharted 3, Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Forza 4, Gears of War 3, etc.
Because now almost every series feels like "more of the same" and a little stagnant. I have zero interest in investing in a brand new console to play "the new version" of older games. I realize new IPs make it hard to sell consoles, which is why I think the next gen console systems should have came out a while back, before we had sequel fatigue.
What do you guys think?

I feel like Sony has some good momentum going in. Just because they are still working on AAA games like the Last of Us and GOW:A.

How accurate has Shipwreck been so far?
Are you guys going to make some predictions for this years E3?

I haven't played a JRPG in awhile (since the PSone, really). Given your praise of Ni No Kuni and Xenoblade, I figured I'd try one.
Which feels the most like it is geared towards westerners in terms of gameplay and story? I don't want to have to explain weird Japan-isms to my wife or sit through a needlessly complicated battle/inventory/travel system.
Hmm. Or should I just Avoid both, then, and go replay Mass Effect 2?

I bought a bottle of sake from a local Binny's called Sho Chiku Bai.
No matter how much I heat it up, it still tastes like cheap vodka.
I definitely liked it better than most hard liquors I've tried, and it got me drunk pretty fast.
but I think I bought a shitty brand.
Do you have any suggestions for a sake that is available internationally that has a pleasant/enjoyable taste?
What do you get when go out to get wasted Japanese style?

Also, Cheapy, can you please tell us when we can expect CAG 3.0 again. It keeps getting pushed back over and over. When was the first time you mentioned it and the original time frame you said it would be released. I want to say that it was well over a year ago.

I have no interest in Pikmin, Smash Brothers, Monkeyballs, I want old-school responsible planning. Why not 1 1st party RPG (Sega exclusive Shining game would've been daring & most likely a huge seller if Reggie's boys had any insight or tangible plan that old formulas in marketing do work), 1-2 action/adventure games (Kid Icarus WiiU or another throwback from the stable is really that difficult to invest in?) & a 1st part sports game (Mario Kart counts, Nintendo non-simulation style). I just don't get how people keep their jobs authorizing such a mess, when games aren't ready, or even in development & there is nothing I'm interested in for a year. Windwaker will be a pity-purchase, to somehow validate my stupidest decision since agreeing with my brother to go halves on a 3DO. Lucien's Quest in tha' house!
Hilarious podcast btw.
Question: Why don't all console launches go w/ a lineup containing at least one GOTY-caliber 1st party game? is ZombieU worth it?
These examples aren't all GOTY-caliber, obviously, but they were new & unique to the system. When I got the Super Nintendo I take a chance on Final Fantasy II, even though I had no knowledge about it, it was a new RPG. The payoff was an unforgettable experience. Same w/ Combat for the Atari 2600, Venture for Colecovision, Duck Hunt/Excitebike/Super Mario Bros for Nintndo, Hang on for Sega Master System, Alex Kidd/Altered Beast for Genesis, DOOM 32x, Super Mario 64 for the 64, Soul Caliber for the Dreamcast, Madden/SSX for PS2, Rogue Squadron II for GameCube, Halo for Xbox, Condemned/Gun(whatever, I liked it), Twilight Princess/Wii Sports for the Wii, & nothing for the WiiU. Come to think about it, maybe Zombie U is the band-aid but the release calendar is still horrendous for a gamer of my taste.

In Episode 163 Wombat mentions that he was working on an iPhone game...whatever happened to that?
He said he had a friend who we was going to get together and do storyboards with for his game.

There are also 4 DLC packs that each add on 10 episodes and 125 achievement points to make it 113 total episodes and 1500 gamerscore. Would love to get some games going with CAG's since no one is playing the game online currently so it's not like Buzz where I can at least get some games in with Europeans if the connection doesn't time out.
(Yeah I don't have many physical friends and even fewer of those would play a trivia game.)

The 360 and PS3 are currently hovering around $200-$300. If both companies release a new console around $450 this year, do you think it will sell units in the current economy or will most people opt to buy a current gen console this holiday?
