My iTunes hasn't updated the Podcasts yet, are you sure it has been released? Maybe after I wake up I will find out.
I am famous for getting CheapyD to watch Swollen Tip while he was broadcasting live.

Woot Woot! Two weeks in a row! I was expecting some "new parent" flake-age (not that I would blame you). +1 respect points for massive endurance!

Comments to come after the show...

You can buy a game these days for $20, you can buy Mercury Meltdown Revolution, which came out a few weeks ago.

The intro video for the spanish game you mentioned, Cheapy, is actually Activision's game, not Ubisoft's game.

Well I was wrong, you didn't discuss the ad situation and you missed my point... plus the number of people complaining was more than 2. You just acted like, in a way… it’s tough shit for the people. Spin it all you want, but you clearly did not read the real complaints... which was, the breaks in the middle of the show hurts the momentum. If the ads were at the start and end, that would be fine. Having ads, while not pleasant, isn't the issue. The issue is where they are at. Next ad campaign you have, don't fold to the advertisers to try to get more credibility. You are CheapyD, be yourself.

The rest of the show is such high quality, don’t hurt the product in any way. The product is why people listen. Just a little advice, but what do I know... I only have listened to all the shows.

In this particular case, I don't have a choice...the ads have to spread across the show. The final ad is pretty much at the end of the show. I'm not allowed to put it as the last thing.

In this case, I didn't really have any negotiating power. This was a blanket contract across many different podcasts. It was the kind of thing where you were either in or out. I will take your comments into consideration in the future.

Fair enough, that is a much better answer than what was on the show. I didn't know the Navy was such Nazi's.

As for DLC in Guitar Hero... how about they do a 3 pack like before, but you get to choose which 3 songs you want. Discuss.

I'll have to post a picture - it's incredibly eerie how much you look like my brother in law when you have hair.

As for the baby whining - suck it up!

My friend and his wife had *twins* in August and he still finds time for gaming. He usually has a controller in his hand and a baby in the other.

It's pretty funny hearing Wombat getting all the free stuff, as it he was complaining about that when I first started listening a couple of months ago.

I also like being a dirty foreigner and not getting the ads.

Sorry, I'm just dissapointed. You've mentioned upgrading to a real PC before for Crysis and then you buy a Mac.

Cheapy, for the charity alternative I'd like to suggest the Hero Initiative. While not directly linked to video games, there have been a lot of comic book based video games. And Wombat would like supporting them too. Basically, a lot of older comic creators did what they did because they loved the art but they worked freelance. Some have made a comfortable life for themselves but others weren't so lucky. Heroes Initiative helps out the guys who created some of your favorite stories and characters. They are a federally approved not-for-profit.

part of the deal for the ads maybe have been that he needed to do them at diff points within the show because they know full well if they ads were at the begginning or the end wed skip them then theyd be paying money for nothing. im not into the ads either but trust me it could be worse. there could be annoying buzzing popups all over the damn place and even worse than they he could be sponsored by tampax or viagra or even worse ryan seacrest.


cant hate on a man for tryin to fill his pockets how he can cause kids arent cheap.especially when theyre babies because diapers and baby shit can add up and put a hole in your wallet that rosie odonnel can fit through with ease. i do wonder though if youre gonna be able to keep up with gaming though nwo that you have a kid. its gonna be pretty hard to do so wombats gonna have to pull double duty unless you get a live in nanny.........make sure shes a hott one that loves to clean naked and in high heels....................

Good lord your wife charges a lot. Hope that email finishes with a happy ending for that cost.

Seriously though, that is really lame. I wonder if 'The City' just gave up and went out for some Hot Dogs.

Cheapy,

What are you? Obviously, you aren't Japanese (even though you kind of look like you might be). Hispanic? Some other kind of Asian? A melting pot of flavors?

He's clearly revealed his otherworldly origins in previous podcasts. Try episode #42.

I love angry Cheapy. It's hilarious. Like Evil Spock. I bet he's growing a gotee this week.

Also, keep rolling the ads. Tell the haters to STFU. More money means better CAG.com and more games for the CAGCasters to talk about and that is fine by me.

Cheapy, I know your pain (as do many CAG dads). The first 4 months of my little girl's life were a nightmare of constant waking, changing, and listening to almost non-stop crying.

Once she started sleeping through the night (which was around 4 months), things got exponentially better. Just hang in there, lack of sleep is the worst part of the whole thing. It makes you moody as hell, as you know.

Great show, guys. But did you really need to stoke the fires of the Sony/NPD conspiracy theory? C'mon, that's the domain of lifeless Xbox 360 and Wii fanboys. NPD just wants to make money, period. I seriously doubt Sony had anything to do with it.

You mean like Circuit City wanted to make money... You telling me Sony had nothing to do with that as well? Sony is arrogant. Having their numbers being at the bottom every month doesn't do them any favors, it's an embarassment and they know it.
