And my Monday starts off right once again.

Also, I believe you mentioned a written response to the "Kotaku-gate" incident, any progress on that?

Can't wait to listen! I can't believe how far that stupid rumor traveled -- I'm interested to hear your take on it. I, personally, found it humorous that Brian "Serious Business" Crecente acted so immaturely and Nick "Brutal" Chester took it like a responsible, seasoned pro.

About the whole fake contest rumor thing here's my opinion:

When I heard about the contest I thought it was a great idea and was all on your side about seeing ridiculous stories posted on popular news websites.

The problem was the fake rumors were not rediculous at all. The Xbox Pure sounds like a plausible name for a new Xbox.

edit: After listening to the show, I didn't see the picture of the pure rumor. That actually was kind of ridiculous.



Also, it's stupid how Crecente says the story being posted is based on CAGs credibility when it was a USERS BLOG POST.

Brian Crecente just has a stick up his ass. It's his fault for running a story with no credibility. The fact he called CAG un-credible is appalling considering how many rumors they post on the site just to attract attention.
Insert clever line here......

Brian C. overreacted about this incident. He should have known the reprecussions of posting rumors. One of which it being FALSE. It wasn't Cheapy or any of the staff in CAG who posted or even promoted the blog post, so why is he hating on CAG as a whole? Xbox Pure? Come on. I thought this was inspired by the new game called Pure and just added Xbox before it. The so-called "document" was obviously fake. I don't know why Crescente's attacking CAG's credibility. It's also funny how Adam Sessler crushed a rumor about a so-called relaunch in his segment called "Sessler's Soapbox." Oh well, I hope everyone learns something from the incident.

You should have taken a picture of you wearing the CAG sweater, to show off what you mean by it not fitting, Cheapy. It looks like she rushed to finish it from the one picture, but would it be rude to ask her to make it a bit longer around the waist?


You read it. You can't unread it.

I remember seeing this story and not connecting it to the "contest". Fantastic show cheapy and wombat, I felt like I was bipolar. One minute I'm laughing the next I'm thinking about what an asshole Crecente is. Anyways I really appreciate that you guys did this and I hope neither of you regret it too much. Anyways have a great week everybody.

Cheapy, you should realize that Namco-Bandai has increased the DLC bullshit for Tales of Vesperia ten fold, including a second 10+ level up item, and 3 more 5+ level up items, as well special items you get by beating regular bosses in the story mode.

As far as Cheapgate goes, the point was proven. They don't have good rumor checkers, period. Also, they flew off the handle when they only had themselves to blame.

"Killer Klowns From Outer Space" is an awesome movie! At first I thought that I had clicked on the soundtrack in my library somehow instead of the CAGcast, but sure enough, you were simply using the music. Awesome!

Is it possible that Cresente wasn't merely embarrassed by a fake story but by the fact that the story (indirectly) came from a friend? I know I'd be pissed if a friend of mine pulled a prank like that. I know you didn't actually create the story, but still. I think Cresente's reaction stems from his perceived betrayal by a friend.

I think Crecente is just stubborn and big-headed. It has nothing to do with Cheapy and Crecente's pre-existing relationship. The few times I've sent honest (and polite) criticism over to Kotaku I was met with a sarcastic and dismissive response from Crecente. Xbox Pure just serves to support this.

Fuck Crecente.
