I lost a large portion of my IQ to my short time in that chat. :-(

I think this is what the industry calls a failure.

Edit: I hope you guys learned not to do a trivia contest when there's a chat full of people that'll post answers.

Never, ever again Cheapy. I'm sorry, but it was terrible. It was laggy, and the quality of the audio was pretty poor as well. And the chat... well, lets just say I've had more intelligent conversations with people over Xbox LIVE.

Lets go back to the old format.

It was a great show! The chat was one of the funniest things I've ever seen! I just think we need to rename the show.......

but still a very noble effort on a first try. I'm sure in time a live cast can work.

There's no need for concern, there might be two, maybe three calls tops. Everyone else is most likely too chicken shit to call in.

And it's not like the CAGcast has a huge listenership like The Hotspot, chances are any calls that are made are going to be somewhat intelligent, as it's going to be from a member of CAG.



When cheapy announced the contest, he got so many calls his computer shut down...

They need to try that other website, the one that was recommended. The people in chat were talking wayyy to much, and it was just adding to the lag.

I agree, a live cagcast can work out well in the end, we just need to try different service or something. I'm still convinced that we can work something out. Maybe we can still get that caller vibe with recorded CAGbags?

EDIT: Linkpwns, I think you mean talkshoe.com . I know Leo Laporte uses that service and he gets thousands of listeners.

Using a regular phone didn't work. By the time you say "the lines are now open" to when you choose someone I can't dial 9 digits, especially word themed ones. Then you get one ring and then you're hung up on. Meanwhile the Skype callers can just press a button: I know because I downloaded it while the cagcast was still live and then called during the cagbag which I then got lots of rings and then the answering machine.

I think what would be better is a Cagcast invite PM to a special chatroom at a certain place and time. Then just have people waiting in the "green room" to come in and talk. You could do it on userplane aka cagchat I'm sure

oh I forgot to mention the highlights (missed most of the show...caught the tailwind of the playstation segment).

Highlights
-Cheapy hung up on the dude asking the nights question during the ps3 segment...
-and of course the contest.

Yeah, the contest was the turning point of the show. I think the Live Cast was interesting and worthwhile. It's just not a 100% experience right now. Maybe until Cheapy gets a new computer for the show, during the show no calls should occur live (maybe having them done earlier in the week or none at all). Or if you do that Cheapy, make them pre-screened before the show.

I was able to listen to the first hour live and I must say that I think it was a great start. the only problem was the lag during calls, but im sure you guys could get that worked out. I really like the Listener Interaction with the Chat Room and Calls.

Keep up the awesome work guys :D

I think that you guys should just revert to the usual method of the CAGcast. There was too much lag and the live calls idea just didn't work too well.

A thought on why the PS3 downloads maybe way faster then a 360, is that nobody is really downloading anything on the PS3 or even has a PS3.

Its actually because the servers are in japan, CheapyD just gets a better connection to the server.

As far as I've heard though, anyone who lives outside of Japan has the slowest download times ever for their content.

I told you all this wouldn't end well.

I'll reserve final judgments until I can download and listen to the show tomorrow, but based on other people's comments, I don't think the CAGcast is ready for "primetime" just yet.

my call wasnt that bad, I just dont own a PS3 and drew a blank partly when I was surprised about the call being answered and forgetting that I called while sony was the discussion, but im glad you got a kick out of the call, because I had fun either way :-)

the only one I didnt know was the Alpha Wolf one, or whatever it was called

only video game I play is madden? Thats the one game I dont play, I consider myself a pretty well rounded gamer, some of my favorite games are Shenmue 1/2 and the mystical ninja series, I was a bit *out* of it though, i was also trying to get my sound set up too and get my mic turned on and I remember telling cheapy I really didnt have anything to add on the ps3, so I thought he asked if I had any question/comment at all, I dont know how much farther I got into the call but I then mentioned the Nights game for the Wii as one I was looking forward to, after that I go back into the chat and see it going nuts from all the people saying I got "pwned" which was probably true, it happens when you step in unprepared so I probably deserved it, heh.

I was pretty suprized when my call was answered by Cheapy himself. I was expecting someone to be screening the calls or some kinda "heads up".

I had the stickam turned down, and the phone conversation was laggy....like a bad cell phone call. I figured the call would be lag free, and any lag would just be on the internet listening end. It seemed manageable at first, but seemed to get worse as the call went on. I was just glad that I could get a quick congrats out to the boys for their first live effort.

Oh well, it was nice talking to CheapyD and Wombat. I think I at least had a "hypeworthy" hype wagon pick. I hope I didn't sound like the biggest loser in the world. I'll reserve that judgement until I can re-listen to the CagCast "un-live".

PS To Guy In The Chat Room: I wasn't masterbating....I just sound that way when I'm nervous.

Cheapy and Wombat, I'd like to congratulate you two for breaking the mold and trying something entirely new, bringing the CAGcast to your audience, live. However, as a CAGcast faithful from #1, I found this to be one of the worst yet...

Aside from the bad lag, I found the call in's to be especially terrible... I think a large part of it has to do with people just wanting to hear themselves speak without actually realizing the need to contribute interesting content to the conversation.

It was a decent podcast but the lag/overall crash/dead silence with Wombat just really ruined it for me. That and well, I was distracted by the chat room.

I think alot of it was just first live episode excitement as the standard becomes normal I think it would even out and become more productive, but then again im probably one of the calls your referring to but my point is that as more people become accustom to the format it just wont be a big deal, and the excitement of just calling in to call in will fade away.

Hey CheapyD and Wombat, just wanted to say that, tecnical issues aside, good show last night. Maybe sticking with the regular format would be best, and doing a live show on 'special ocassions'.

Problem was none of the callers had actual questions, so maybe if there was a specific event going on then people would have more directed questions.

Anyway it was an interesting experiment, I stayed up til 3AM my time to listen and behold the madness that occured in the Stickam chat. People sure did seem to love spamming it with useless comments.

I didn't attempt to listen (was with the kids at Shrek 3 at the time), but will definitely listen when it's posted - sounds interesting.

So, can anyone post the CAG names of people who called in (besides Wolfgame)? I'd like to know who called so I can hear what you nobs sound like ;).

Ron of destructoid(spelling?) called in and it was pretty funny. The lag kind of killed most of the cagcast and the chatroom was crazy. It was an ok first try and it can only get better.

I just listened to the podcast on my drive home for the weekend. The live calls might work better as people get used to the format, but I tend to prefer the two-person format the show has had all along. I had also enjoyed the recent interviews you guys have had on the show.

Additionally, Cheapy, you mentioned that you were thinking of a MacBook for a new laptop. I'd highly recommend the machine, as it's what I'm typing this on right now. The laptop has a gorgeous display, a very comfortable keyboard, and is nice and thin. Once you have a chance to work in Mac OS X, you won't want to go back to Windows (I didn't). I'd recommend ordering it from Amazon, because they offer a $100 rebate on all MacBooks that they are the seller for (the rebate is done electronically, no paper involved, and all the Amazon rebates I've done for work were processed very quickly). I sprung for the DVD burner in mine when I got it in February and it produces high-quality burns in my testing. The white 120 GB model with burner is $1300 at Amazon ($1200 AR) and the white 80 GB model withot burner is $1100 ($1000 AR). I'd also recommend picking up a copy of Parallels Desktop for Mac, which is software that lets you run Windows (or any other OS) in a window on your Mac desktop at almost full speed. It's $66 at Amazon and is an amazing application.

Just thought I'd put in my two cents. Keep up the good work, guys.
