Probably due to the fact that its summer which means very little new releases and slow gaming news. We'll probably get longer CAGcasts in the fall.


Hey Ship, would someone who severely dislikes Michael Cera enjoy Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? The only thing stopping me from seeing it is the fact that I really hate Michael Cera.

And Wombat, stick to humming during the Go Daddy segments. I don't mind the humming in the background, but the toy music was extremely obnoxious.

Excellent as always, guys. Wombat had some good points this week, although perhaps it balances out with his spontaneous flatulance (some of us eat when we listen, you know! :D ). Also, I think I'd enjoy Ys Seven. I was actually thinking of picking it up, but then decided against it when I bought Silver Star Harmony during the PSN sale (I'm also saving my bones for Valkyria Chronicles 2). It would be so, so sweet if I won that code. ;)

I await your review of Ys, Shipwreck. I'll be getting a PSP next month for Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep and will be looking for more games to play on the system, hopefully Ys can be one. Great show as always, guys. If you don't take my word for it know it's 4am and I'm staying up longer to listen to the podcast.

Same here, even though I don't hate him, I just think he plays the same role in every movie he's in. However, now that i know Edgar Wright is involved, I really want to see it.

The PS3 game is pretty good, and the soundtrack is so catchy.

You guys are forgetting about the fact that you need ME1 to import a character into ME2 if you want to play a Paragon character, let alone see some of the characters that may or may not have died in ME1.

It also implies that any choices you make in ME1 won't matter that much (more emails!) in ME3 especially if a large chunk of their audience won't even see that content.

Mass Effect 2 on PS3 is awesome. Why? Because Mass Effect 2 is awesome. I haven't played a more consistently good game like that in a long time (but it's still not one of my favorite games ever). One concern I have about it coming to PS3 is not having some of the more major choices from the original in 2, namely characters being alive. By simply giving players a checklist to mark off what they want to play with in 2 would remedy some of those concerns, even though I'm not going to double dip for the PS3 version.

Wombat, whenever Kotaku did NPD posts, they usually did at least 2, maybe more. One for hardware, one for software. I've kind of lost interest in NPD's because the software sales have just become sorta depressing to not see some of everyone's favorite games selling not as good/poorly as you think they should, especially with the bad economy. But at least Dragon Quest IX sold quite a few copies.

Good show

And because I couldn't let this moment be passed up, a song.

It's difficult for me to say since I actually enjoy Michael Cera outside of Scott Pilgrim as well. It's kind of a similar character to what he's played in the past, so if you really hate Michael Cera, this probably isn't going to change your mind.

I know you guys don't have interest in buying kinect or move but I think you need to purchase it anyway. As listeners we want to know if something is good, bad or worth buying and I come to the cagcast to hear what you guys think. Even if you buy it then decide its total crap and never play it again Its still useful to hear about it on the cagcast.

I think there ARE people who will buy Win Phone 7 solely to get achievements. Do you really think there aren't? Have you read the Engadget comments?

I think Win Phone 7 looks pretty cool. That said, I'm buying an Android phone. I'll check back in after WP7 has had a year to mature.

I agree with Wombat on the Matrix vs. Star Wars question. It's not even close IMO. There's a big difference between disappointing and plain bad.

Re: ME2 for PS3

Coming from a gamer who likes to play, but doesn't have the hours or the funds to have all games and all systems, I only have a PS3 (for the blu-ray/gaming combo) prefer the role-playing and best quality games, and want Alan Wake and Mass Effect 2. This is exactly the kind of news I hope to hear more of. Keep fighting the good fight shipwreck!

I work in Digital Display Media, so for me, Wombat's discussion of the cost for Gawker vs traffic was actually a nice way to tie my work and personal life together! Though, a CPM is the only way for that set up to work, as CPC or CPA would just come at too high a premium for that cost method to ever fly on a site like that

As for Mass Effect 2, I'm in a bit of a pickle- I have a PS3 and just bought one of the new 360's (250gig) soley for the purpose of playing Mass Effect and Fable. Now that 50% of the reason I bought the thing is out the window, am I pretty much SOL? I dont feel so bad, as I also picked up Gears and Dead Rising and was pleasantly surprised, but the idea that I finally caved and then this news break is a bit of a blow to my gut...and wallet.

I know I'm an extreme case here, but I'd like to believe there are atleast a few others in a similar situation. Now, when ME:3 comes out, do we expect it to be cross platform, or XBox exclusive (for atleast a while)?

And Wombat, I was talking to you about Dragon Age too! Way to cut a brother out! The Dragon Age DLC is a bit hit or miss (though Golem of Armgarrak was hard as hell), but the game itself, aside from some issues like Frame rate and complexity of combat (not due to intricacy but poor design), the game itself is actually very well done. I never beat Fallout 3 but stuck with DA:O to the end, because the story was so well done. It's definitely a labor of love, but worth it.

/end diatribe...and boys, get some bean-o.

Ship,

I was in the same ship (hur, hur) as you with Fallout 3. I got out of the vault and lost all interest. Then I came back to it months later, and absolutely loved it and all 5 DLCs. Give it another shot!

Oddly enough, the same exact thing happened with Dragon Age. I played it through the intro mission, forgot about the game, then came back to it and played it to death.

Hi Cheapy,

Check out these books for whenever you are going to Hawaii. There is a different book for each island.
http://www.amazon.co...1.102_95&fsc=-1

These books are fantastic, they are written by locals and regularly updated. We buy the latest edition whenever we go.

Try to get a reservation at Duke's on Waikiki Beach for their Sunday brunch.

If you want to do anything "touristy", GET THERE EARLY.

And Oahu is not "The Big Island", that is Kona.

I think the very first Ys had the same deal where you had to talk to everyone in the town before you were allowed to progress. It's a shame that such contrived pacing devices are still used in some Japanese games, but from what I've been reading, Ys 7 gets pretty darn good after that point. Give me the code! :)
