Great, I'll listen to this tomorrow! I was starting to think baby Wombat was born, which would have explained why there wasn't a show this week. Guess I was wrong...

Wombat - if you liked MGS4, you should go back and play MGS3 Subsistence.

I'll be interested to see what CheapyD has to say about Dennis Dyack. I just finished this weeks 1UP Yours that has a full conversation with him about all kinds of craziness that links back to the fact that his game is in fact not trash. I suggest that everyone listen to at least the end of the 1UP where they talk with him if they're confused when CheapyD calls him out.

Nice movie recommendations, the fight scene in Eastern Promises is epic.

Bizarre Foods is too disgusting for me but I love Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations.

Regarding what you guys said about Dyack and the gaming community.

I get what Cheapy is saying about the gaming community not influencing casual gamers, (the Madden, NFS type) but I think Wombat has a valid point when he brings up the Bioshock example.

Casual gamers tend to ask their more hardcore friends for advice on games to buy and word of mouth from friend to friend helps games that may not have done well become a surprise success. (I think Phoenix Wright is another example of this as is the buzz for Little Big Planet.)


Props for being excited about Jethro Tull and Rush for Rock Band 2!

It was great to hear that Wombat greatly enjoyed MGS4 despite Cheapy saying before that Wombat would definitely not liking the game. It was also nice to hear that you got the gist of what was going on, Wombat, but you can now just skip cutscenes on your second playthrough.

I must have been the only one that expected in-game XMB to be literally what it is, so I wasn't assuming cross-game invites and voice chat would be a part of the update. It actually works better than I expected, as I was able to hop from PSN game to PSN game double-checking for trophy updates and I can hop straight to the PS Store from Rock Band to buy songs and download them before heading back.

You guys missed the chance to talk about SOCOM Confrontation's delay for a few weeks to October.

"Scrolling up and down lists isn't the easiest way to find things" is bashing the competition now? This generation's gone soft.

The RB Free Disc DLC thing was confirmed to be false as the IGN guy was making guesses for some paid article, which is a great thing to see their money go toward.

Wombat, they're not radically changing the instruments. Look at the new guitar and it's the exact same Strat with a new paint job. They're making new instruments that improve on RB1's instruments, but they're not going overboard, so your old instruments will work fine. Just get the disc and you'll be fine with what you've got, especially with all of that RB DLC working with it, as well.

This was Cheapy's least informative show ever. All of these clueless remarks made it seem like Wombat was clearly more prepared for the show despite losing a 360, playing through all of MGS4, and busting a toe while still checking out Chrono Trigger DS, Mega Man 9, etc. Great show.

A good show a little too short seeing as the show was delayed for a few days, but thats not your fault because if theres not much happening latley whats the point in dragging the show on? Also always more about your lifes! If im gonna sit and listen to you for two hours I wanna know what's going on. Keep up the awesomeness.

While I think Dyack went on way too long on the podcast, but there are a couple of points that I think where he was right:

First, NeoGAF does have an influence. He was pointing specifically to Chris Kohler, who posts at NeoGAF and, for some reason, wants the validation of NeoGAF readers. He wrote the "negative" preview that Dyack referred to on the podcast and posted pictures of the game to prove that he finished (and, therefore, has the right to say that the game is crap). So, if GAF is effecting the way that the press cover the game, then there may be at the very least a small effect on sales.

Second, while I do agree that he took the long, long, long route to get to his point, he is right that people place too much emphasis on metacritic or gamerankings numbers. He was basically "tricking" EvilLore into throwing out a random metacritic number (90%) in order to show that the only way people can "prove" that a game is good is to refer to an arbitrary number.

The other stuff he brought up is kind of weird. I haven't been on GAF long enough to know if they go around changing user "ranks" to make fun of posters or if it's all in good fun. I mean, I guess if CheapyD or one of the mods changed my "rank" here from CAGaversary to "Shit eating Canadian asshole" (or, more likely, something much worse), I might take it personally and not want to post here anymore. But again, I don't know if they do it there just for laughs.
I don't think anyone comitted suicide because of a GAF post though... at least, I hope not. (Although, I have no doubt that Jeff Bell is quiting in part because of the fact that he PMed a user there).

I think the Dyack segment should be Cag Shovelwared. Or at least part of it, because the opening of that really set the tone.
