Woo! Can't wait to hear Cheapy's report on Tokyo Game Show. Especially given that he opted to do this podcast rather than go back.

When you tell us about the Bangkok 8: A novel, it's kinda remind me one of the Nick Cage's Bangkok Dangerous. It's not really a great movie. However, It's a movie about a hitman in Bangkok.

Good Show by the way.

Anyway, TGS Pre-show press conferences from both Nintendo and Sony are sucks. Too much Handheld information that do not concern me at all. Not many new excited gaming news. I truly hope that there are new game announce except Resident Evil 6 (Just announce. Update: it was fake, Sorry).

I believe the reason that Microsoft does not have a press conference at all (not sure, not that I know of. If there is one, I am sorry that I was wrong) is that they are doing very bad in Japan. I truly hope that the Japanese can accept the quality of Xbox 360. I think PS3 and Nintendo are doing great too. I am not a fanboy.

Anything that wasn't Magneto, Professor X, or Kevin Bacon was boring and useless in Xmen: First Class but those three were so amazing it made the movie great.

I hate the 3DS because Nintendo wasted so much graphics power and battery life for 3D. (because of the double resolution screen)

I think the reason there was no Modern Warfare 3 this year nor at PAX was that they were focusing all their attention on the XP convention.
I am famous for getting CheapyD to watch Swollen Tip while he was broadcasting live.

C'mon, Wombat, your lack of comic book knowledge is letting us down! Darwin was not a "red shirt" specifically created for X-Men: First Class. He's been in the comic books for many years.

According to comicvine his 1st appearance was 2006. He might as well have been a red shirt.

Wombat, you mentioned that you missed Shawn Michaels at the Cabela light gun demo, and I didn't know who "Shawn Michaels" was, so I typed "Sean Michaels" (note the alternate spelling of the first name) into Google, absentmindedly clicked on the first link returned, "www.seanmichaels.com", and got something not quite suitable for work At work. In an open area. Ouch. Now I know that the other Sean Michaels was the recipient of the 2010 AVN Award for Best Double Penetration Sex Scene. Note to self: next time do the search in Wikipedia first!

I highly recommend Ready Player One by Ernest Cline from Audible. It's read by Wil Wheaton and is a great book for the old school and new school gamers.

If any of you guys (CheapyD, Wombat, Shipwreck) give the book and try and don't like it, then I will sign up for audible and buy a couple of domains from GoDaddy I've been meaning to buy for awhile now :)

Dedicated handhelds will still be around.

$40 3DS games aren't really $40. CAG 101. Hell you can still get $20 for Mario Kart DS or Super Mario Bros DS. And those games are much better than any $1 iPhone game. IT's also not like the 3ds doesn't have an online store. YOu can buy cheap games on there as well as we speak. I imagine a few iOS classics will make their way to the 3DS as well. Don't forget that the real cost of an iPhone is $700 too.

And as Wombat touched on - there are the controls. A touchscreen is fine for some games, but for others it sucks. Plus they take up screen real estate. The 3ds also brings the dual screens to the table. And being a dedicated handheld means bringing future gaming hardware advances to the table that smartphones won't come with. Shipwreck touched on the last point. Nintendo has the franchises. They have the Mario name. Zelda. etc. And they have the gaming development talent. And the back catalog of games.

I think right now iOS device owners are hypnotized by the ability to very easily and instantly buy games for a couple of dollars. And that has alot to do with the fanaticism. Understandable. But I don't think the games themselves are driving that fanaticism. Although sure Apple could release something like Nintendo did for the 3ds. An official attachable stick and button peripheral for the iPhone and Touch. Maybe that could change the outlook here.

Overall though I don't see Nintendo going away or dedicated gaming handhelds. iOS could drive out many of the casual fans from Nintendo's grasp. I wouldn't doubt that. But alot of gaming fans want bigger games. GAmes with buttons. Games with sticks. Two screens. They like games. And will go where ever to get them. Nintendo has a good rep amongst parents too. And has lots of fans.

Plus who knows. iOS could make gaming fans out of more people and drive them to dedicated handhelds in addition. A 3DS is only $170. And will be even cheaper within a few years.

I do think Nintendo will need to take advantage of the cost savings of digital distribution even with their big gaming franchises. That will happen naturally probably. IF their games sell less than expected into next year you could see a move towards this for all Nintendo games very quickly. They'll have some leverage with retailers then. They won't be seen as abandoning them.

Very much looking forward to the Deus Ex discussion! Gears 3 discussion should be cool since Cheapy seemed to really enjoy the beta (plus I love Gears).
Gaming is all about having fun!

I feel bad for kids these days playing $1 flash games on their iPod touches when I played Pokemon.

At least they can watch porn on it.

Thing I liked about X-Men: First Class was it went back to the accusations from long ago that Charles Xavier only recruits and protects the "pretty" mutants. Ones which can pass for normal. Throughout the movie, you get the sense of Charles constantly berating Raven when she's in her blue form. Because the sense of wonder as he discovers her as a child is quickly faded, her ultimate betrayal wasn't something shoved in, most of the film telegraphed it.

Also, Angel was a more recent addition added when the school went public and Xorn taught a class of "special" children.
