E3 plans are being finalized, Shipwreck and Cheapy need a hand with Datura, and Wombat may or may not rock out.

If Tai were old enough to play Pokemon HeartGold, he would've made you use the Pokewalker, a Tamagochi pedometer.

Did anyone else find it kind of ironic that all 3 of the guys blew off Minecraft, but in the same podcast Wombat mentioned that his daughter liked Lincoln logs? Wombat, if she does enjoy playing with toys like that, I am willing to bet she'd enjoy this game, or even just have fun watching you play for a while.

Well, Wombat didn't necessarily blow it off, but I was definitely surprised at Shipwreck's reaction.

I will be the first to admit this game isn't for everyone, but even in my Minecraft "noobness" I have to say, it is fun just to explore and learn how to make all the different items in the game.

Cheapy, I hope I get to play Tribes with you someday, though I will very likely suck.

Thanks for another fun podcast.

Cheapy,

Have you seen the Bodymedia Fit?

it's much more accurate compared to the Fitbit.

I have one, but I stopped using it. I would sell it real cheap if anyone is interested.

Here is a link: http://www.bodymedia.com/

Supposedly 90% accurate.

I think it's going to be really interesting for the podcast when Cheapy starts playing and talking about PC games, even if the other guys won't have much to contribute.

What is the name of the opening song this week? I've heard the song years ago and wanted to track it down, but Google isn't so kind to attempts to search for "do do do doo, do do do" for songs without lyrics.

I seem to remember it being a Royksopp song, maybe...?

Toy Story 3 has coop throughout the entire game. The story mode isn't great, so a large part of the enjoyment is coop.

Great show overall! Good variety of game coverage.

I definitely recommend Awesomenauts. Balancing issues aside, it is a great game to play split screen co-op. My wife absolutely loves this game. It’s a great blend of tower defense and side scrolling shooter. Cheapy, give it a shot with Mrs. Cheapy., hell or Tai, or both. (It's FREE for PSN+ members)

I feel bad for Cheapy and Wombat for not experiencing the fun of a drive-in. The sound may suck, but it’s more about the overall experience. It’s kinda like camping mixed with going to the movies. Can’t beat the price, either. I feel very fortunate living in one of the few places with a drive-in.

Gran Turismo is one of the best selling game for Sony going in a history of sales (#1 PS1 #3 PS3 and #3 PS2 and is #9 on PSP) so It is a game that's really needed to be on the Vita library.

The fact that MK is so damn impressive on the Vita makes the system even sadder, it really needs some damn big announcements at E3 outside of a massive price drop.

Edit: I think Gran Turismo will outsell Call of Duty in the US *IF* It's similiar to the DS/Handheld versions released prior. However, if it's anything like COD on the consoles then COD will outsell it by quite a bit.

I'm shocked that you spent several minutes on Datura but have done absolutely nothing in it.

It's boring. Weird...but boring. The controls are god awful, but I think the Move is better than the Dual Shock, but even the Move is horrible. And the game itself is nothing more that a collection of mini-games for the most part. Just go from section to section and do something like throw a ball or crank a lever. Very boring gameplay hidden behind a trippy experience of choices that I don't know actually effects the game itself other than maybe some color changes in the leaves.

Just give up now while you're ahead guys. Wasn't worth it from what I played.

I finished the game and I'm telling you now, that is the highlight of the game.

Well, not entirely. You can wash your hand in a second place, but you have to keep going back to the boob to feel it.

The problem with that is, I can both wash my hands and feel a boob without having to pay $10 to do it.

Awesomenauts is great. I played it at PAX East and even better, got it free from PSN. It is the same game genre as DOTA, Monday Night Combat, League of Legends only it is 2D and 80's cartoon themed. Even the trophies/achievements are references to 80's cartoons. Froggy G is the pimp, I love his theme song.

Great show btw.

I use my 3DS the same way CheapyD uses his Fitbit. Whenever I go to a comic convention, I have StreetPass on and make sure to walk around everywhere multiple times to get many puzzle pieces. What sucks about the 3DS is that you have to check it frequently and let people in to the Mii Plaza to continue getting people.

I would like to hear more about what restaurants you guys go to, since I live in the LA area. I even went to the previous two CAG meetups.

I would not get a vita for Call of Duty or buy it if I had one. It wouldn't make a good portable experience. Also most CoD players play the 360 version I believe because of Microsoft's deal to get DLC first on 360 among other factors. Call of Duty on the vita would be like CoD on the Wii: nobody wants it unless they just own that system.


I really liked the walking dead game. Lee is interesting, and getting small insights to the comic universe I liked a lot. I'm a huge fan of both point and click games and walking dead so me liking it was pretty much a no brainer. I thought it had a lot of suspense and mystery to it and I look forward to the upcoming episodes.

The IGN app ads wouldn't bother me that much if the video content was longer than 2-4 minutes long. For that long have a little ad at the bottom or play it at the end.

Listening to Wombat struggle to describe Awesomenauts made me laugh. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with PC gaming would have just said "2D DoTA."

Cheapy, if only there was a thread on CAG that could tell you what came out on PSN this week.

You guys forgot about Overstrike, which is the game that Insomniac announced last E3 at EA's press conference. They're not giving up on console games by any means since this is the new game from their social games team that they started last year.

Way to cop out on reading my question, Wombat.


You read it. You can't unread it.
