Hot tea, meteor shower and the CAGcast whats better?

ohh btw that intro music was sooo bad
Wow Raystorm is coming out? awesome game that I used to play over and over on this demo disk I had
Guys I think doing a show on nothing is a great idea! I always listen to the old casts just for the random nonsense then move on :D

About that DLC...I used to play a free game called "Gunbound" until they introduced pay items, my friend bought a few items for his character and he was unbeatable. DLC is fine when it's completely harmless but when it breaks the game or gives the buyer a big advantage it just ruins the game.

Is there a suggestion thread for the iPhone App functionality?
I know that I and others would like some kind of easier PM access; Toggling back and forth between normal and iPhone optimized mode has a very high PITA level- especially when I am just doing it for PMs.
Thanks in advance.

Honestly I am disappointed that GRIN may be closing down. I was surprised at how fun WANTED was, and Bionic Commando only solidified them as one of my favorite developers. They didnt set the videogame world on fire but they made games that were plain fun. I need games that are accessible and that I can actually finish in a reasonable amount of time, and GRIN delivered.

Cheapapp Gamer sounded good till I realized it is going to sound like it is a cheap *app* gamer. Essentially a gamer who is looking for cheap apps. The title will be very misleading.

I just listened to the part about an iPhone application, would there be any interest in an Android app as well? I work with Android a bit anyways so I could help out in developing an application for it if people would like that. And I use an Android phone personally so that's a reason to do it as well. ;-) Does anyone else here use one?

Guys, they HAVE to list the games at MSRP or retailers will be pissed.

Besides, Steam does the same thing. People only give them a pass because of all the amazing sales they do. Look at Left 4 Dead -- a Valve game -- it's $40 on Steam and in stores. Or how about Warhammer online. That's $40 on Steam while it's $14 on Amazon and less than $40 in most other places.

I think the thing that doomed Grin was taking on too many projects at once even with a few studios outside of their main studio. I don't think they made any games that were that bad to deserve to be fired.

Xbox 360 Games with worse Metacritic scores than Terminator Salvation:
Zombie Wranglers
Damnation
Infernal: Hell's Vengeance
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Leisure Suit Larry: Box Office Bust
Shellshock 2
Onechanbara
FunTown Mahjong
Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos
MLB Front Office Manager

Of course, if these are the only games it can be listed as being better than, it's not in great shape.

Good show.

Pissed at what? That games they haven't carried for over a year are cheaper than they were when they were stocked? Left4Dead's a recent game that has sold well enough to not warrant a price drop with a sequel and DLC coming later this year.

Looking at Steam, Bioshock is $20 there and $30 on the Xbox 360. Call of Duty 2 is $20 on Steam and $30 on Xbox Live, so it's not like Valve is cowering at whatever is making Microsoft decide on those prices. There are definitely examples why some of these prices are the way they are, but they can't use that same excuse for the rest.

I think Grin would have faired much better, had they not taken on too many projects at once. Having one game bomb is one thing, but having two or three, in such a short space of time, could easily end you. I don't know of any developer that has had three bad games come out so close to each other.

I guess their talented staff will find work, good luck to them, especially in todays climate. I know first hand, its a jungle out there.

I'm pretty sure we will be tracking iPhone games too. ;)
