Longtime CAG and former 1UP/EGM star Nick Suttner brings a sorely lacking injection of class to the show, but even his presence can't erase the mental scarring that accompanies this episode.

Already 75 seconds in and I've gone from 'holy Fuck, that's an awesome burger picture' to Wombat creeping me out. It's a new record!

I don't think Microsoft wants user reviews on their marketplace. Why would you want user reviews on something you control that could potentially hurt sales? I think something Xbox Live needs more than anything else is Clan Support/Group Support. I know people have these Group List Accounts setup, but those are really counter-intuitive since it's basically a version of Friend Codes, requiring a list for each game which gets ignored when the next big thing comes along.

As for Premium Themes, I don't think there'd be a problem with them if they were the price of the old themes, which a lot, if not all of them were discounted when NXE came out (although not a lot).

I definitely liked RebelFM when I listened to it.

Listening to the podcast right now and it's great so far. A real laugh riot.

Edit: Oh and I've pulled my groin muscle as well, Wombat. Unfortunately it was because I was climbing out of a pool and not catching a significant other in the kitchen. Bravo.

Less than two minutes into the episode, and I already know why this podcast was titled "Too Much Information!" I would have changed the title, though, by adding two more exclamation points. TMI, Wombat, TMI!

Weird, I found out about this on Facebook first. I never find anything useful on Facebook... this is weird.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Great episode. Didn't need to know that much about Nick's life, but good nonetheless.

Geez, Wombat and Cheapy have sex everywhere in their house. I bet the whole place would glow under a blacklight.

Oh, and Cheapy wonders why people call him rich. If I had left $900 in the ATM machine I'd be super screwed sideways.

OK, thoughts about the show. First off I just want to say you guys need to work on your people skills. Everytime you interview people you seem to come off as awkward and a little rude. There's a fine line to walk between being funny and edgy and you guys tend to always come off the wrong way. The interview with Nick (who I like very much) was a waste of time in the hands of you guys. I really like the cagcast but I see now why your viewership numbers are not what you guys hope it could be.
I know that I appear to be a new member but I've been here since the first cast and know what path the series has been on and feel like I can comment on it without coming off as someone who has no idea what he's talking about.

Other thoughts:
Wow Cheapy that sucks about your cash. I had a dream last night that I lost my laptop and I woke up in one of those states where I wasn't sure whether it was real or not and I felt sick to my stomach. I guess that is only a fraction of what you feel. I wish I had a thousand dollars to lose. And wombat there are much worse ways you could have pulled a groin and sex on a table is a pretty good one. But my god the image in my head...excuse me, I think I'm going to drink some drano.
And Mad Men is such a fuckin dope show. I am in awe of every moment Don Draper is on screen just being a total pimp. Not to mention Salvatore is one awesome gay dude.
PS. I do think the two of you have good chemistry and are funny together, it's just with other people like shipwreck and interviews like nick that I think you guys need to work on.

I think Cheapy is just in the stage of denial of his epic fail.Like that episode of the Simpson where Lisa launches the pig and it's flying thru the air and landing on everything and Homer keeps saying "It's still good,it's still good"

I'm sure the memory will haunt him everytime he goes to the atm. So give the rich guy a break ;)

I agree with Cheapy. The hang-ups on the 360 dashboard are getting pretty freakin' ridiculous. 20-30 seconds each time I hit the guide button. And don't even think about doing it during a game.

And Wombat, dude. You need to warm up before having sex again. Stretch your shit out, or something, man. You need to get some hazard pay.

Lionhead's site says that there are 3 quests in 3 separate dungeons for the Knothold dlc. Keep searching, Cheapy!

OUch. $900.

Don't the ATMs have a camera in them like here in the US? The camera record who come to machine after you left money. You get image and find person. Get your money back.

And save the Wombat sex stories for the end of the show. Half your audience flip to new show after hearing that story.

Cheapy, please check out www.redtube.com, when you have a moment.

For everyone else, please use caution if you click the link!

I'm amazed that these boys don't get into more trouble for talking about their sexscapades on the podcasts.

I'm sorry that Ship doesn't get more love as a guest.

Congratulations guys, a wonderful return to form with this episode. It makes me think you took my criticisms (http://www.cheapassg...467#post5359467) to heart- if so, bravo!

I loved the way you kept the show moving, and the Suttner interview added a bit of life to the show. Please keep the interviews coming! I know it's quite a bit of logistical work, but the efforts are well worth it.

Talking about Afrika, Pixel Junk Eden, and your problems with the NXE was want I wanted to hear.

And Wombat, I am experiencing the same intermittent problems with connecting to live. Two questions: Is the light on your wireless adapter on, when your system doesn't connect? And do you use another (like a surge protector) to completely power off your system?

No way, you must be big ass chainz pimpin' 'cause 900 dollah is still a fucking shitload of space bucks for anyone to lose!

But yeah, new cagcast--yay! Somethin ta listen to at work.

Edit: as far as the reasons Hearst dropped the hammer on the podcasts, I don't think we as outsiders can say exactly why. Certainly, we can't speculate that they bought 1up strictly for the podcasts. It might be fair to say that the Hearst marketing folks really don't know the value or potential for the podcasts or care what the individuals who produce and star in podcasts mean to the existing listener base, but I'm pretty sure they "ran the numbers" and made their decisions based on some kind of financial analysis and business model. I mean, you've got to when you invest millions of dollars on anything.

Edit2: thank god I played the part of Knothole Island before you spoilered it in the show. -_-

Edit3: shit wombat is farther in Fallout 3 than me and I've had the game almost since launch. :(

Edit4: i don't know if Sony's financial problems will necessarily have a negative impact on PS3/PSP. Those are big brand, focused product lines for the company and they have to fund those divisions.

Cheapy, wow, that's a lot of money for your wallet. let's just hope you don't get mugged by a CAGcast listerner in Japan. :P

Wombat, i'm shocked about your pulled groin story. it's usually Cheapy that would reveal that information. ;)

No need to worry about me. I got plenty of love despite the fact Cheapy decided to read those glowing comments about me on the show. He's a bastard like that. :)

Great show, I really enjoyed the “inside baseball” aspect of Nick’s interview. (Although he kind of mumbles). My question was very tongue-in-cheek and not sure that came across.

Nice relatable podcast.
Wombat: I actually pulled my achilles tendon during sex with my wife. Unfortunately it was a few weeks before a half marathon and could run as well as I wanted.

CheapyD: I understand the whole podcast jealousy thing. I have a podcast about running going on 3 years. Every time I hear about another running podcast getting an advertiser or publicity, I feel the burn. Even though I know most of my “competitors” and they are great people.

Hey guys,

One of your best shows in a long time, a little personal stuff, some bad and good luck but mostly bad :P, fun games industrie stories and an interview.
That is how the CAGcast should be! :)
Great work.

But DAMMM 900$ USD, I dont care if you are 8 or 88 that is a lot of money :(
+
The sex and other stories about old E3 and stuff that is great mix that is what the CAGcast makes the CAGcast (that is a lame line) anyway keep it up and hopfully someone of you 2 will care about pc gaming, Mirror's Edge on the pc is the best version :P.
Hey how about that EU place he? I hear its kind of big ;)
