Why is CheapyD surprised that the publishers control E3? The publishers pretty much control the media more than any other type of entertainment I can think of because the press needs early review copies, access to previews, access to interview, advertisments, etc. TV and movies will pretty much blow anyone with a camera, a mic and a time slot at anytime. I've never heard of Warner Bros. telling a respected critic to Fuck off because they gave Shriek three 1 star. The worst they do is not show the movie to all critics before the opening weekend.

P.S. Great show, haven't laughed that hard during a CAGcast in awhile.

You haven't seen the video from a previous press conference about being able to take pics with your cell phone and send the pic to your apartment in Home? Phil Harrison took a pic of the crowd and it showed up in the game a few seconds later? It may not be in the first edition of Home, but it's one of the things they've got it in the works.

on the customer service thing,
I had been in china for about 3 weeks and on a lark decided to go to mcdonalds. everything went just as it would here, but when i got up to throw out my garbage, one of the workers came and grabbed the tray out of my hand and threw it out for me. I was surprised.

As I have said before I am a Circuit City employee, and I worked in the games section for a long time. It took a very long time to explain to your average person the differences between all the 360 versions. And even some regular gamers needed a bit of info.

and....there's the gaybot joke. Cheapy has officially made this one the most offensive CAGcast of all time. Wow. I thought about turning it off at the urinal part, but I thought it'd go up from there, but it obviously went the other way.

I really think Cheapy has a checklist of offensive jokes he needs to cover. If he misses one, it must sadden him greatly.

Seriously, funny as hell.

Yeah the urinal game has been in dev for a good 3 or 4 years now. They were testing with hand help water guns that are similar to the 2 handed box-gun things they have at carnivals. But id love to see this in production at like a dave and busters where alot of urinal action would be present.

I've found Penny Arcade Adventures to be funny, not really laughs throughout, but there are funny situations, dialog, and characters, too. While the initial story isn't carried through the entire game, it does show back up at the end when they show the preview for the next episode along with the hint to what it's about, which has me very interested in what they do for the second episode.

The thing I like about Singstar's interface is that you can hop around quickly with the press of the start button, say from the SingStore directly to the game modes and then back to the My SingStar Online community and then check your PSN friends list from there, too. It's a very well-designed game.

Good show. Far less controversial and full of "facts" than previous episodes, at least from what I caught. It's good to see that you gave the SModcast another shot, Wombat.

Good show so far. Ya, I used to work at a supermarket in high school and the first year of college, so I'm about 4 years out of that position.

And yes, I did go on competitions for being so fast, and I won a few 100 dollars the last month I worked for them at a national competition, but that was only because my store was bought out about 3 months before I left and added the new competitions for speed and accuracy on the register.

I did not get to go on Supermarket Sweep, though I did spend a lot of time talking to customers about the show, and how I thought their cashiers had the easiest job in the world (they check out one person every day).

Cheapy, i worked as a freelance web designer and that guy cannot ask you for the remaining balance if he didn't finish the project. that's what a deposit is for. he should be lucky that he got some money from it cuz i've done a few projects where i did mock-ups for free. btw, did you work under some written contract? cuz if the deal is done under a verbal agreement, then i'm not sure he can sue you for the remaining balance.

if you ever need another freelance designer or artist, hit me up. ^_^

Wombat, as for the Warlords discussion, i bought the CoD4 maps just to play with you and the other CAGs. i don't think i would've gotten them if it weren't for you bastards :P

cheapy and wombat mentioned the PA game not making them laugh out loud. i'd just like to point out that i don't think i've busted a gut while playing the game, but it does have good chuckle moments and plenty of moments where you laugh inside. I think cheapy is on point with the price point though. I don't regret my $20 purchase, but it probably really should be between 10 to 15. When the next episode is released at $20 i will hesitate to buy it unless i hear that it is much greater than the first episode. What the Arcade needs is Sam and Max!
