Uh Cheapy, is the mystery game Wizard of Wor?

EDIT: Yep, it's gotta be The Incredible Wizard (Wizard of Wor) for the Bally Astrocade, just saw the Youtube video of it.

Agree with Shipwreck on the whole Penny Arcade thing. It's being blown way out of proportion.

Kind of hilarious that it's caused such a stir, considering how many things that are usually infinitely more offensive to people have been on Penny Arcade's comic. I thought the Dickwolf strip was pretty funny to be honest. Not because rape is funny or any bullshit like that, but because I'm an MMO/RPG fan and it's just one of those oddities with the quest structure in most games that you encounter.

The comic strip wasn't even focused on rape, it is being completely blown out of proportion, of course, by saying that I'm just a rapist apologist.:roll:

Is the game Missile Command?

bah sounds like Cao was right?

Anyway good show. The hour is fine when it's not full of the potty humor crap. I like the predictions segment too. Keep doing that.

And agreed with all the praise for Dead Space 2 so far. I'm only on chapter 4 but so far it's a very good game.

Mystery game is definitely Wizard of Wor, congrats Cao Cao. :-P

As for the shorter show, I personally liked it since IMO there was a better balance of idle chat and actual content.

A "dream portable" where a person can take the exact same game from console to hand held and share saves . . . I enjoyed this years & years ago, TurboGrafx's Turbo Express. It's still in my basement somewhere.

pick amazon cao, then you can use it to buy both games and groceries.

Oh and Longer is better by the way, for episode length as well as screen and penis size.

Hey Cheapy,

Can you throw your U.S. listeners a bone here regarding the contest? I listened to the podcast first thing this morning when I woke up. I almost drove off the road on the way to work when I heard the Wizard of War sound effects. I rushed into work to post but someone at 0200 had posted and, I think, is on the other side of the world. I used to play Wizard of War all the time at the local pizza parlor.
How about a little something for your U.S. fans?

Good show. Prefer the longer ones..of course.

Everyone seems to be ragging on the NGP for being to console-ish, even though i agree, I notice that everyone seems to think that equates to failure. Now that Sony has a portable that does console graphics and has two sticks, how has no one come to the conclusion to the end all be all...? Four words. Call of Duty Portable. Even if it was just a port of Call of Duty 4, you'd have to imagine that would outsell a 3D Mario.

Great show. I have to say I kind of liked the shorter format, sometimes things get a little bogged down and I kinda zone out while listening. It appears I'm alone in this opinion though.

Also, why do you have to read disrespectful listener comments? I made a similar comment regarding the death of the racing game genre last week but my comment was civil and respectful. I guess those just aren't as exciting to read on the show.

The NPG is already a failure in my mind.
It has way too many specific features on it.
Games available for it will only underutilized the features, because they will all just be ports.
Developers would be nuts to spend the money on an NPG exclusive.
Sony's isnt known for its long list of successful handhelds..

With all the features they're packing into this thing, the price is going to be expensive.

On release Sony loaded the PS3 with tons of features too. It bloated the system to incredible costs, and they are still in this frame of mind with the NGP.
Havent they learned anything??
This thing is doomed before it gets out of the gate.
