Wombat just listened to you talking about Fallout 3. Sadly enough I got Fallout 3 at target like 4 months ago for 40 dollars, and I took off the wrapping and I haven't even played it yet. Although I probably have 20 or so PS3 games to play.

I'm in the same boat as you. I played it for about 2 hours one day and haven't gone back to it since. I'll do it...eventually.

On another note, thanks for the latest cagcast, guys. I was surfing the internet and missed about 50% of what was said, but it sounded good.

Go get the free steak dinner. I can tell you that there is a reason they asked you and Ship, CAGForeplay mentions these games when they are released, which is the only publicity that they really get. People aren't covering these games extensively so anyone who is willing to talk for a minute on a podcast about pet sims is their target for this dinner. If Ship comes away from the dinner with an idea of why these sims are different, he can mention it on CAGForeplay and the steak dinner will have been worth it for them.

Cheapy,

A CAGcast or two ago you mentioned your Shure headphones had one channel crap out. I experienced the same thing this last week. I checked out Shure's site to see about a warranty replacement, and they mentioned 75% of the requests they recieve are the result of wax clogging the nozzle. So instead of forking over $75 since I lost my reciept, I followed the cleaning instructions. If you take off the little rubber ear piece and shove the cleaning tool all the way into the nozzle and twist it around for a few seconds, you can probably clear the blockage. Worked for me and my headphones are working great again. Hope this helps.

Cheapy and Wombat,
I think you're missing the boat a bit on the UFC game. This is going to do huge business for THQ. I believe it will be the highest selling new release of May as the demand for this game is at a high pitch. Most Gamestop's in the St. Louis area had 100 preorders each for this game, so I can imagine it's only bigger in other cities. It's been 4 years since a UFC game came out and the amount of traffic the deal thread and the threads in the 360 forum get should be an indicator also.

Bionic Commando is going to be the game left out in the cold I believe. PunchOut and Infamous will sell well and be in the top 10 but I believe BC will be lucky to get in the overall top 20 for May. I don't know a single person in real life or on my PS360 friends lists who have even slightly mentioned the game.

The UFC game is supposed to be a representation of the sport, so it's going to be a slower pace than Street Fighter, Tekken, Soul Calibur, Virtua Fighter, etc. I would highly recommend doing the tutorial (which is in the demo) and then trying again to see if you enjoy it anymore. Many people don't seem to realize the tutorial is in the demo.

If it's too slow for ya I understand but I know myself and my non-CAG real life friends played the demo for 3 hours on Saturday night just handing the controller back and forth with only 2 fighters being available so for anyone who's watched a decent amount of UFC I would highly recommend a purchase, especially with the Best Buy deal (at least if you get it before the close of business on May 23.)

At least you got 2 hours into the game, I opened the case and then closed it thinking I would play it eventually, but I haven't even read the book which I normally do before starting a game. Think I was playing DMC4 and I still haven't beat that game either about a 1/4 way done with that.

Wombat how many hours into Fallout 3 were you into the game where you would say I need to continue playing cause it is addicting.

Cheapy I sent a message to Major Nelson on Live asking why you were being snubbed but I didn't get a response and I guess you didn't either. Now I guess I'll have to email him and Trixie to see what's up.

you need to play for at least 6-8 hours for it to sink in, it's an unusal commitment bit totally worth it

Cheapy, I wanted to discuss your comments about UFC: Undisputed 2009. While I personally love this game, I can understand why you wouldn’t like it. Comparing UFC Undisputed to fast paced fighting games would be like comparing Gran Turismo to Burnout, both are different takes on the same theme.


My question is, have you ever watched Mixed Martial Arts while living in Japan? Some of the best MMA promotions in the world are based there. Shooto, Pancrase, Sengoku, Dream FC (formerly Pride FC), and K1 just to name a few. I’m forced to hunt for torrents if I want to watch these fights, and it makes me jealous that you have such easy access to them.


And in case you didn’t know, disgraced Baseball star Jose Conseco will be fighting 7’2”, 330 pound Korean kickboxer Hong Man Choi during Dream FC 8 on May 26 at the Yokohama Arena. No, I’m not making this up. Jose Conseco will be fighting Mixed Martial Arts.
