I dunno I'll look into it, maybe he's on the cagcast this week though. Wouldn't be the weirdest place he's been interviewed lately.

The only time I've known of a reduced-to-free game on Xbox Marketplace was when Undertow was given out to Gold members to apologize because Xbox Live crashed for a couple days. I still have yet to play that game...

I believe the last reduced to free XBLA game was Carcassonne and that was for them borking Xbox Live for about a month after NXE came out.

Wombat, I was wondering if you're going to wait a year for the eventual Skyrim GOTY edition or not? It seems like a safe bet considering the last 2 games this generation from Bethesda have had them. I'd bet on a third from Fallout New Vegas, but it's a bit too early to tell.

Great show! all the talk about Bulletstorm really makes me want to buy it now..I was going to wait for a $20 price point, but the good reviews and talk about the game make it seem like it'd be a pretty fun time.

and I used this code for the Dragon Age beta (thanks evantrees!)

Good show. I was actually pretty interested in everything you guys talked about.

Cheapys upcoming games wishlist was pretty good. There's a ton of great stuff coming out this year.

Some other upcoming games that weren't mentioned: Rage, Silent Hill Downpour, Tomb Raider, Dark Souls, Shadows Of The Damned, Alice Madness Returns, and of course...Lego Pirates. All could be pretty good along with everything else mentioned.

I think Xbox gave the post for people that signed up for it. i know I got it but my other profile for other members of the family did not get it but it proves my PS3 got much more love.

I preordered the Nintendo 3DS, any word if the 3ds will have demos to download?? I am just replacing my DSi. The only launch game I am getting on the 3ds is Lego Star Wars 3: Clone Wars. 1 of the other things they talked about was movies coming to watch on the 3ds. The 3d movie channel was apparently added to the 3ds shopping channel today, watching a 3d movie that only I can watch seems interesting.

Speaking of portable devices, I don't understand the hate for the NGP. Sony has fixed all the issues and are including a 2nd analog stick and still there is haters. Plus you can add all the games that you downloaded to this new handheld. My only sticking point is the price. I won't pay more then $299 and I fear it will be more. I just say reserve judgement on the NGP till we know more maybe at E3 when it would make more sense.

I saw Cheapy's tweet about the PS3 system update while using Plus. Since they update the system update at a certain point of the day, there is no way for it to know that you are playing between the update time and the middle of the night for the auto update. Same thing goes if you play a game and that game has an update and they system was updated in between those times. I was shocked it wasn't mentioned but it's just one of those things that can't be handled any better.

Man, why are you guys praising Bulletstorm so much! You're almost succeeding in making go buy a game I initially had very little interest in. I think I can resist for now though, I'll definitely put this one on my list of games to buy once it's $30 or less.

LOL once again Cheapy pretends to be open minded but slamming the NGP nonetheless. Also like with almost every PS3 sequel (Looks to God of War III, and Uncharted 2 for examples) the best thing he can say about the game is "it's more of Killzone, it's good, it's Killzone".

I won't beat a dead horse, but maybe people are questioning your will to do this podcast because you are becoming very set in your ways. You know you like the iPhone and iPad and refuse to give anything a shot, you know you like certain games and dislike others, so you go about your business, it's become very stagnant.

The site is called Cheap Ass Gamers, but you usually spend a good amount of time telling us about the money you are spending on iPhones, iPads, 3D TVs, and trips you take. Sort of leaves a sour taste in my mouth. I am pretty sure Ship and Wombat notice it too.

The personal stuff is funny sometimes but add more content to the game discussions, bringing back the CAG deals is a good idea.

Otherwise good show, Ship and Wombat are the real reason for this show, wish they got more props.

We don't have to imagine if Japan tried to make God of War, Shipwreck. God of War came after and was clearly derivative of Japanese action games like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden.

I'm sure you're right that Knights Contract is crap, though.

I was listening to you guys talk about your Raptr stats, so I checked my own. Their numbers are way off. I played Pac-Man CE DX last night for 10 minutes and Raptr says I played for 41. I wonder where they're getting these times from.

So what do you want him to do? Create Fake Enthusiasm?

I am not a big fan of my PS3. If i had my own podcast, i wouldn't fake my feelings to make a few fanboys happy. He's being honest and that is all we can ask.
