Yay a new CAGcast. Can't wait to listen. And now that I have listened, I'll comment.

Great show. Quality wasn't bad. I'm only 19 yet I caught the Memorex thing. The whole DS vs iPhone thing really bothered me. Mainly because you compare the two like the iPhone is made for gaming, when it's not. And I like how Cheapy pretty much answered the "What does a DS successor need to have?" with pretty much "the same things the DS already has".

I would rather take some light clicking over the steaming pile that was the last CAGcast.

so I decided to see what I could do with it and I got to the end but there's no way I can finish him off.

Now I have something new to listen to before I fall asleep. Thanks, guys.

I'm really curious about what you guys have to say about Heavy Rain, since it's being hyped so hard lately.

skipping a week of cagcast is like skipping a week of coke with my heroine addiction.

Great show guys, audio quality wasn't that bad. That live show was awful.

Like the previous guy said, the audio wasn't that bad. Some light crackling isn't a big deal to me. ;)

Good show. The quality is fine, the only problem is that Wombat sounds like he's logging everything with a typewriter. It's definitly not as bad the live show from last week.

Why would Microsoft release Gears of War 3 the same year they're releasing a Halo game from Bungie? That doesn't make much sense to me.

On Dead Rising 2, I heard somewhere that it's the same old save system like the original had.

I agree with Wombat on the kitchen cabinets. Cheapy, you got taken for a ride on that deal. No fucking way I'd be paying $1000 for some cabinets after there's been an agreement that the apartment company would switch them out for free.

My child's daycare would certainly be hearing from me if they had a demon-man come in and scare the shit out of the kids. The best thing to do for your kids if they have nightmares when they're young is to not take them out of the bed and cuddle them, but simply reach into the crib or sit next to them on the bed, rub their back and just reassure them that there are no monsters. They'll go back to sleep quicker that way.

I'm a bit disappointed that the Data East collection is only available for the Wii. I spent so many quarters on "Heavy Barrel" back in the day.

The audio quality of this show is not so bad. It just sounds like Wombat is fapping it in the background.

The live show audio was absolutely terrible. The audio problem this week was nothing. Cheapy commented that others didn't like the people that call in. I feel the people that call in seem to be half brain dead. Stern would hang up on these guys in about 5 seconds. You should do the same Cheapy. :) They just don't get to the point.

Great show otherwise!!! CAGcast is one of those podcasts I listen to as soon as I see it waiting for me in iTunes.

The main new release is Aliens vs Predator?!?!?!
Huh?


Did someone not get a free copy of Bioshock 2 so they are boycotting it?

No, BioShock 2 was released last week. I got a copy in for review this week. I'm sure it will be discussed next episode.

Just poking a stick at ya ;)
Still, if this CagCast was recorded anytime in the last week, I find it strange Bioshock 2 wasn't even mentioned (not finished listening to the entire cast).
If you check all the major gaming sites in the last week, I think you will see Bioshock 2 over any of the games that were mentioned.

I don't follow the logic behind live shows being better for doing interviews. Wouldn't that be more restrictive since you have to conduct the interview at a certain time since it's live versus a recorded Skype conversation that can be done anytime during the week?

P.S. Wombat needs to take some Rad-X!

Never saw the draw with live shows.
I don't mind them too much but what is the point?
And if you continue them, please screen calls in advance, or better yet, have them submit a question, then you arrange who can get through.
Nothing kills the flow of a show more then hearing some stoner stumble over a stupid question for 5 minutes.

Well done. I didn't think Wombat's audio was too horrible; it didn't really bother me.

The "Wish List" in general is a lame name; seems like an 8-year-old kid making a birthday list. Although I guess I don't have a good alternative. Possibilities:

On Tap List
Most Wanted
In The Chamber
On Deck
Up Next List (or Next Up)
Coming Soon
Power Ups
Lock On List
Reload List
On Target
The Queue
The Inevitable
Next Level List
Watch List
Tracking List

None of those are any good, nor do they describe what the Wish List is.

Great show. Cheapy you should try Mass Effect 2 on Insanity mode. It can be very challenging.

Almost half through the latest CAGcast on my drive to work. Thoughts so far:

1) Strangest audio problem I've ever heard, it sounds like Neil Peart is drumming on Wombat's desk with his fingers.

2) I picked up on the Live or Memorex and the Capt Caveman references. And the Jeffersons theme song, come to think of it. Yes, I am one of the 8 listeners over 30. Waaaaaaay over 30.

3) I thought the Dante's Inferno demo was pretty good and will probably pick it up at some point on sale. Ship seemed pretty even handed in his review of it- too many reviewers and bloggers dock it too many points just for ripping off GoW though.

I'm not saying they are not right- but isn't a good game a good game? What if you never played God of War?

Games rip off other games all the time. God of War borrowed a LOT from Devil May Cry, everyone is fine with that. Where was it written that God of War is some sacred cow that can't be copied from?

4) Brutal Legend is incredibly underrated and the RTS sections got way too much hate.

The first one you do is easily won just by cranking out units. Each one after that they add a new element so that by the time you are to the last few you have a good handle on how to do them.

You also need to find the hidden solos. The game is a lot more fun when you can summon a FLAMING ZEPPELIN FROM THE HEAVENS to smite your foes!

I enjoyed Cheapy and Wombat's discussion of where portable gaming is going.

I'm with Cheapy on this one. I don't need a 30 dollar game with high production values on my mobile device. I only ever want to play for a couple minutes at a time, and I don't want to have to remember a bunch of stuff from the last time I played. I experienced this with Zelda DS: when I fired up the game, I had to remember where I was, where I had to go, what items I had... so on and so forth. By the time I could really get back into the game, game time was up. I know Zelda isn't rocket science, but portable games need to be experiences you can jump in and out of.

Yesterday I was sitting in my law school library. I had the desire to play a Soccer game on my iPod touch. 2 minutes and 99 cents later, i was the proud owner of X2 Soccer 2009, which plays great and has the national squads (you'll never get club licenses on a 99 cent game, so no loss there really). This is powerful.

I can understand Wombat's desire for a d-pad and buttons. But any new handheld from Nintendo needs to emphasize connectivity, local storage (I cannot stand carrying carts around) and inexpensive creative games. It also helps if you don't look like a doofus using it and carrying it about.

Loved the show guys. Wombat sounded like he was speed wacking it every time he talked which made the show even funnier.

Good back-to-form show today guys. Thanks for appropriately lowering my expectations of the sound quality, because I didn't find it too unpalatable. It just sounded like Wombat was doing a light, tasteful tap dance routine when he was speaking. Keep up the nice reviews, Boat Crash.

Cheapy brought up a lot of good points on MAG, I'm just wondering if its going to have any community in a year or two because of those problems.
