Why is it that I can never connect to the CAGcast voicemail box? I've been getting either "voicemail failed" or disconnects while recording every week since the first contest started. I'd like to be able to enter the contests someday!

I haven't listened yet but I saw in the show notes the link for the CAG game collection features. What I don't see in that list at all (in John's blog) is that there will be anywhere to store trade-in values. We need a replacement for the old CAG wiki to store all those trade-in values (in particular we have a lot of good data for Gamestop trade-ins since they've been running those promos recently).

Obviously this wouldn't be attached to the collections so much but I think that in any lists of games there should be fields for trade-in values at all the major trading places (GS, Gamecrazy, Blockbuster, FYE). Maybe these can only be changed by mods with the raw data coming as usual from CAGs who take advantage of trade-in deals.

In particular, I like the idea of including it in this part:

Game lookup bbcode for posts. E.g. [game]Gears of War[/game] posted anywhere on CAG will turn it into a contextual link - clicking it will display a panel containing essential stats about the game (e.g. CAG rating, "what it's worth" price, and a summary of people who are trading/selling the game.

Along with that data there should be trade-in info with the date it was last updated.

I was surprised to see Wombat being called a PS3 hater last week because of his love of Ratchet & Clank, PixelJunk Monsters, and even prefering Oblivion on the PS3.

You should tell the Pizza Guy the next time you see or talk to him that to be a good candidate for the Darwin Awards that he needs to die a stupid death.

Castle Crashers isn't coming out this week, Galaga Legions is the XBLA release of the week, so I don't know why you were talking about that instead. I think the reason for the higher price is the amount of levels that it'll have, especially compared to the few levels that Alien Hominid had.

I find it funny that Wombat and Cheapy feel so much guilt for asking for free codes from PR guys that work for these publishers. It's their job to hand them out because they want the reviews and publicity that they can bring. I have no problem asking because I don't have all the money in the world to spend on these games, so any help the PR guys can can provide is great for me.

You should have tried out the NHL 2K9 demo on PSN, Cheapy, since I haven't seen it appear on XBL just yet. I know you were a big fan of their hockey games, but have since switched sides when they turned to crap.

Wombat's looking forward to the next Warhawk update? The next time he mentions it, he'll start his line with "The problem with Warhawk is..." ;) :lol:

Should you not be buying the downloadable versions of retail games unless you're going to play it a lot? It would be a waste to download a game that you're not really interested in it that much.

Controversial Quote of the Episode: "There's no reason to own it." - CheapyD referring to Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Uncharted got a trophy patch a few weeks ago, Wombat, so go get it now.

How about a CAG Foreplay: CAGcast Edition for next week with Wombat and Shipwreck doing a substitute CAGcast?

-I applaud Wombat's boycott of LucasArts due to corporate conduct, and I appreciate the practice in general.

-Nintendo kept the MotionPlus a secret because they are deeply paranoid about leaks and also competitors. They probably should not have in this case, but I think the MotionPlus is a mistake anyway. It shouldve waited till next hardware cycle.

-Regarding the console wars, Cheapy is right in that market performance does not carry over from cycle to cycle. Completely new ball game. This is something that many developers forgot after the PS1 and PS2. I most likely wont be buying any home consoles next cycle though. I'm going all portable.

Why would you guys feel bad about asking for prepaid Bionic Commando codes? Companies should be sending you review codes from the start. After all the positive coverage that you give Capcom, they couldn't send you a $10 code that would cost them almost nothing? You're growing more and more important in this industry. You guys should seek out as many freebie copies as you can, you are certainly deserving of them.

Great show as always. I'm always surprised at how not cheap CheapyD is when it comes to video game purchases. This is CAG after all. To be honest, games like Braid aren't worth $15 to me because you only play them for a few hours until you beat them. Can you honestly say you'll go back to it in a week, month or a year? To me, $10 is a better price point when the enjoyment is much less limited than a full release. If BC: Rearmed was $15, I would of had a harder time of picking it up. I've only put in maybe 5 hours and I'm at the end of the game already with only the challenge rooms after that. The game needs legs to warrent a higher purchase (DLC, online multiplayer, etc).

P.S. CheapyD doesn't get gifted games on the Wii because you're not able to to send gifts across regions. Sorry Cheapy.

I don't get Wombat's reasoning of hating LucasArts. They obviously want to make fewer games in studio. Should they keep paying 100+ people $60,000+ a year when they don't need them just because that's the nice thing to do? It also wasn't random when they were fired. It was at the end of The Force Unleashed development.
