Wombat eating those 100 calories oreos made me hungry for oreos at 2 am. So I'm about to go walk to 7-11 and get some.......
So far an entertaining great show I'll keep listening during the walk.

Regarding Suda 51, in 2006 he said the following:

IGN: Why did you choose the Wii for Heroes?

Suda: People will probably buy the Wii and play family games like Wii Sports, so we decided to develop Heroes for the Wii because gamers might get tired of the family games eventually. Also, people who are going to buy the Wii are interested in trying something different, something that's an extraordinary action game.


Killer7 sold 28k LTD in Japan between the PS2 and Gamecube which together made a huge install base for the game. NMH has about 12k known sales in Japan on only 4.8 million consoles. NMH is doing better than his other games, he just needs context.

In regards to 3rd parties in Japan, they outperformed 3rd parties on PS3/360 in 2007, despite the attach rate. Add in vastly lower dev costs for those games as a bonus.

3rd parties cant avoid competing with Nintendo just by avoiding their platform.

For Japan in 2007, 1st Party Nintendo software on the Wii outsold all other non-1st party Wii software. That is to say (1st+3rd Party for 360+PS3, along with 3rd party Wii).

Same story with the DS. 1st party DS >3rd Party DS + ALL PSP combined.

Thats a failing of 3rd parties to compete across the board, not just on a single platform.

I'll listen tonight, but I wonder why the lawyers for the XBL lawsuit haven't made it a class action suit. I, and a lot of other people I'm sure, would join in.

Bionic Commando ReArmed looks great for PSN and XBLA. No online co-op for the game. They did say there are other modes that they keeping secret.

I agree with CheapyD about DLC.There is another exception Killzone:Liberation. They added another level to the game and a multiplayer online mode.

Hype-Wagon:Bionic Commando ReArmed,Patapon,Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel 2: Sons of Liberty, B-Boy,Metal Gear Online

Wombat -World Games for Commodore64 had a game with Caber Tossing.Similar to your"World's Strongest Man" game idea.

Cheapy, Wombat, good show as always! One IMPORTANT correction:

You CAN use your GH2 and GH3 guitars with Rock Band on the 360. In fact, they are preferred to the guitar that comes with Rock Band (mine broke already, they replaced it for free, but it's pretty much reserved for bass use).

Rock Band is fun as hell, my wife and I play it together almost every night.

He was referring to the PS3 version.

quick correction Cheapy, a 360 game is about 4.7GB since that's all a single 360 DVD disc can hold. btw, nice hat!

Wombat, good luck with the car thing. i can't believe you got it FREE! that's the ultimate deal, lol...

Actually, I think 4.7 GB is the maximum size for a single layer disk. I believe a dual layer disk can hold up to 8.5 GB.

Normally I dont hold much beef about what you say, but this time stuff seemed to get under my skin.

You continue on your OMG 5 gig install issue with DMC4. You failed to see where I said it eliminated ALL LOAD TIMES in the game. Therefore making the game a more streamlined expirence. Personally I would rather have a 20 min install time, and have no load times, then have to worry about load times while going in and out of enviornments.

The second thing I have noticed is that if its not a first person shooter, Cheapy seems to turn his nose up at it. It might just be me but it just seems this way.

Next, I dont know why you single out Virtua Fighter 5 for having downloadable content thats already on the disc, its not like any of those items are going to take away from the game. If you want to get on someone for downloadable content, get on EA, espically EA Sport, charging for alternate jerseys? Whats next paying to have grass on the field? Please dont aim your hate at download content for a game that does not deserve it.

Also Congratz to wombat on hosting the Advance Wars launch. I would be there to stalk you if I lived closer to NY.

Thanks guys and Keep Up the good work.

Listening to him crinkling the package was freakin annoying.

Is it so hard to go an hour without eating?


I disagree with the nonsense about the Wii being only for non-gamers. It is simply not for hardcore gamers. There are plenty of regular games for the Wii. As someone who has a busy life -kids, career, other hobbies, I don't need 10 games a week. 1 solid release a month is plenty plus the a few mini-games for the nights when I only have a spare 30 minutes to play.

I would be nice if the two of you could appreciate consoles from perspectives beyond your own.

I don't know who wrote in about daycare but perhaps they are living in the 60's. Many men and women have full-time jobs, thus explaining the reason why daycare centers are EVERYWHERE. And take it from someone who knows, I have two kids and daycare is crazy expensive but quite necessary.

The 360 uses a dual layered DVD. Double that number there.

Dude, it's not about load times. It's about taking up a huge amount of space on your hard drive. If you have a 40 gig HDD on a PS3, then 5 gigs is 12.5% of that.
