Cheapy loves Max Payne 3, Wombat is not actually not too bad at Fitbit, and Shipwreck deals with delays of upcoming games and the GI Joe movie.

Cleveland beat Detroit tonight, I just got three hot dogs for $1 at Sheetz, and a new CAGcast is out. Life is good.

Here's to a great year of gaming in 2014   :beer:

If you guys do decide to do a screening of the Avengers (or whatever) I will try to come, since I am not too far from L.A. Don't be afraid to charge a little, it will keep some of the freeloaders at bay. Maybe you guys could do a dinner with Cheapy, Wombat and Shipwreck, or a "smoke with Cheapy" fundraiser to offset some of the costs of the party, too.

The digital comics discussion was good. I wonder why they don't just have a code for a digital copy with the book so the buyer gets both a psychical and digital version like they do so much with movies these days. That way your getting traditional comic readers onto a new medium and new comic readers to check out more books.

Also Batman Venom came in the mail today. Good so far.

As for a CAG meet up I'd just skip it and enjoy yourself. I like it better when you do things like the CAG bracelets you did long ago.

Here is what the xbox 360 chrome controllers look like:

Listening to the opening, reminded me, I must say...

Cheapy, I'm sorry I didn't listen to your recommendation to watch Drive sooner. It was greatly interesting.

i was pretty excited for Max Payne 3, but the aiming system and the repetitive nature of the game (cut scene, shoot x amount of bad guys, repeat) bored me to death.

I tried the multiplayer portion of the game,. which was fun until people started spawn trapping me. Needless to say, I did not enjoy this game as much as I wanted to.

Not only is it not a Japanese exclusive, it comes in multiple colors as Wombat alluded to:

Silver chrome is sold at Best Buy.

Red Chrome is sold at Wal-Mart

Blue Chrome is sold at Gamestop

No mention of the 360 possibly not being sold in the US later this year. Even though I don't see it happening, do you think this will have any impact on Microsoft possible rushing to get it's next console don't even sooner?

I wish the Silver 360 controller with the transforming D-pad that I got for Christmas 2010 had color buttons.

I don't. I LOVE the monochrome buttons. I don't need rainbow buttons to know which ones to hit. ;)

HAHA, I like that Wombat and Shippy know more about secret E3 announcements than Cheapy. The owner and host of CAG doesn't even get exclusives. XD

I know where the buttons are, but in low light you can't even see the X on the X button because it's so dark, which just looks crap. And when I handed the controller to my wife so she could try the Minecraft demo she found the lack of colors so confusing I had to go dig the original controller out so the buttons would match what was on the screen.

You guys should have built your own PCs. Everything's so utterly simple and there are so many useful guides out there I'm sure Wombat could piece together a working PC in under two hours while still not being able to define RAM with any degree of confidence. Trying to put all that junk back in the giant box of battleship looks more complicated than building a PC.

Also half the reason GRAW was so awesome was because of the acronym and you only need about two weeks to get sick of playing KOTOR Online.

For the CAGcast E3 meetup you guys should contact the L.A. Microsoft Store at Westfield Century City. During E3 week I'm sure they would love to host some event. If they don't chip in, at the least Cheapy could buy a few things and give them out in a raffle or trivia contest or something like that.

Great show! Really looking forward to hear what all three of you have to say from E3. News is okay from other podcasts, but opinions from three "regular" gamers matter to me.

I wonder if telecom companies would actually consider using these antennas. Despite all the technological innovation that fits into the palm of our hands, it's sad that what runs them is still just as unsafe and dangerous.

Frontline is awesome.

"It seems a lot like the demo, the first level of it is straight up that level where you fight against the Chimera."

"That's the beginning of the game? Oh, that's surprising?"

I hope you mean that the setting in the first area is suprising, and not a video game demo that takes place at the beginning of the game is surprising.

It is insane that the Dark Phoenix saga costs $17 digital, when the graphic novel is about $10.

Hey Cheapy! remember that you can use your xbox controllers with a PC (via wired or a wireless adapter)
