I think you guys were unnecessarily harsh on Harm's Way. Also you got a few facts wrong. It's not really a car combat game; it's more like a co-op game where one person on the team drives and tries to get in first while the other person on the team controls turrets along the race track and tries to take out the other players. It's really best played with a friend online against computer opponents.

Also it's a VERY easy 200/200 for you gamerscore whores out there. You can get the full points after a handful of games online with a friend.

I think you guys should give it another shot. Crash Course is a well made game but personally I think Harm's Way is much more fun and unique.

Other than that I love your show, keep up the good work.

Thanks Wombat for mentioning that there's going to be some good stuff coming up in 2011 for the PS3. Here is a list of exclusives for PS3 in 2011:

Little Big Planet 2
Killzone 3
Infamous 2
The Last Guardian
Motorstorm Apocalypse
Twisted Metal
Resistance 3

Oh yeah and some game called Uncharted 3.

At least 3 of those exclusives could easily be competing for GOTY in 2011.

Now here is a list of exclusives for Xbox in 2011: Gears 3

So yes SONY got "dominated" by soccer moms throughout the land this holiday season. Next year though it will be a different story. A story involving real gamers.

Hey Wombat, just remember when you are talking about Dance Central sales that the NPD numbers are US only, while the 2.5 million Kinect accessory sales is the worldwide sales number. Great show as always, and as always, Wombat is wrong about something.

I think the download problem is an Internet Exporer issue, try using another browser. I asked Cheapy to fix it but he said "no" and went back to eating gold eggs.

I gotta slow down. i read that too fast and thought CAG and GameScoop joined forces. I know a lot of you guys aren't fans of the IGN podcasts but for me that would have been an awesome awesome thing.

In regards to your comments about the potential disparity between Kinect hardware and software sales, I think there may be a segment of the population that have bought just the hardware for hacking purposes. It may not be a ton of people, but I've seen enough hacks to consider it a possibility.

Love the 'cast, guys. One chocolate treasure you missed--chocolate-covered bacon. My daughter and her aunt made this for me for father's day--pretty tasty. However, it had to be eaten in extreme moderation.

I think you all are dead on about Namco and its lack of promotion. Enslaved and Maijin are both solid games that got little or no promotion. Both had demos that helped convince me to buy them, but even the demos got little or no promotion.

I'm not sure pre-released games will solve the problem, but it defintely can't hurt. I think Dead Rising Case Zero is a good start. Have a prequel that ties right in to the final game and gives you some sort of bonus.

I can't believe any of you didn't bitch about the price of the Mario All Star collection. Isn't that usually Wombat's role? 30 bucks for 4 games that are already available on the Virtual Console for a total of 20 bucks. Are bonus features really a bonus if you're paying for them? I presume you all let this go because it's on the Wii so you don't care.

Did you guys play the Iron Man table on Pinball FX? All Iron Man ever talks about is his stock and getting his drink on.

Oh, and Kratos is a much better fit in Mortal Kombat than he was in Hot Shots Golf. (Was he in Soul Calibur? I thought that the Tekken guy was the only Sony exclusive to that series.) Will this Mortal Kombat be on the Wii so we can get Link disembowling people?

Just chipped in $10 for Child's Play. Cheapy, I find it interesting that you were more compelling in asking for money for Child's Play than you usually are when you're plugging business for CAG itself (maybe that's why I keep fogetting to use Amazon affiliate links when I buy games - sorry man!). Oh well, hope to hear you next week...

With the exception of Little Big Planet 2... not really impressed with what the old PS3 is going to offer in 2011. But, it's still a pretty good Blu-Ray player.

I really enjoyed the discussion on the marketing of new games. The real issue though is something that Wombat touched on. The budgets for many of these new IPs are just way too high. Concepts and execution are pushed aside in favor of graphics and graphics equals expense.

Fans of Enslaved or Majin don't seem to talk about the look of these games as much as the stories and game play. Reducing the graphics to an average level would give them enough margin to drop the price to the a point where they could build an audience. That audience is going to carry forward to the sequel which means it can be given a larger budget and everyone can talk about what a huge leap forward this already good game too. We've seen that model with the Assassin's Creed series and with Mass Effect. It does work.

geez you all can be fucking morons sometimes.....well alot of the time. as far as xbox sales go what percent of those are people replacing consoles that have died on them? thats always been one of the major reasons i laugh at people gushing over xbox console sales they never factor in the new sales that are for current customers replacing dead consoles. and yeah some of the ps3 sales are too just not as many.

as far as wii sales go theres alot of fucking retards out there. and yeah im sure people are now picking up consoles because of kinect and move but how many would be interesting to know.

My point still holds, as I doubt worldwide sales of an American music game topped 2million. So I am not completely wrong. Also, you smell.
